Bodegas Gormaz Ribera del Duero Crianza

With Rioja, the region of Ribero Del Duero produces some of the world’s best tempranillo-based wines. This is a spectacular value for this quality. Full-bodied with dense tannins and impressive oak elements. Kirsch and mocha notes are in front of the leafy and more complex flavors in the background.

Cune Rioja Gran Reserva

CVNE is the bomb and the reserva is always a school favorite. The age is showing as dried cherry and plum, with a fresh strawberry note under a deep cut of mineral. A classically elegant wine that harkens back to a different era.

Chateau Miraval “Studio” Rosé, Provence

The region of Provence has been making rosé for centuries. This wine shows just how far ahead they are in the pink wine game. Notes of burnt butter and quince follow aromas of wild strawberry and burnt sage. Spice and orange marmalade flavors round out this pretty wine.

Signae Sagrantino di Montefalco

This seething beauty unfolds with mineral, bright cherry and sauvage herbs. The structure here is dense with taught tannins. A beautiful but traditionally-made Italian wine from Umbria.

Silver Totem Cabernet Sauvignon Wallula Vineyard

If you are the philosophical sort of wine drinker, or one that appreciates a very good deal, this is a bottle for you. Nothing flashy, but a varietally correct Cabernet from a single vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills in Washington State. Well made, with plenty of graphite and pyrazine.
