NV Austin Cabernet, Paso Robles CA
So many of our customers have fallen in love with central coast Cabernet. Austin Hope is no exception. This is a new "mini" Austin Hope and instead of $40, it's yours for $20. This is a fruit forward Cab with dark, robust, and juicy berry jam notes. Hints of vanilla, soft oak and toffee. Easily a weekday sipper without the big price tag. Austin Hope Cab. Fans will absolutely LOVE this little Paso gem.
2018 House of Brown Chardonnay, Lodi Ca
We have been fans of the Brown Family Estate wines for a very long time. The Browns are the first Black owned winery in Napa and still one of the few in the US. Amazing family indeed. They just released their second label House of Brown and I jumped on it. Not only because of the sweet price, but because it gets away from the oaky chardonnay's Napa typically offers. This Chardonnay displays more tropical fruit characters. The label is the picture of INCLUSIVITY and the belief that all are welcome. 95% Chardonnay with 5% Vermentino, Brown Estate sourced this fruit from Lodi, CA. Aged in stainless steel to retain freshness, this wine is light, crisp, elegant, and juicy with a bright yet round mouthfeel. It starts off on the nose with pineapple, starfruit, and guava with secondary notes of flowering star jasmine, orange blossoms, and traces of honeysuckle, lemon verbena, and meringue. Drink liberally with paired with crab cakes, grilled oysters, seafood carpaccio, corndogs, truffle fries, mac and cheese.
2018 Giapoza Cabernet, Napa, CA
Recently awarded a 90 pt score by Wine Enthusiast and our #1 sold wine in the store, we had to make a staff pick for this wine! The 2018 Giapoza Cabernet Sauvignon is bursting with aromas of red cherry, ripe red raspberries, and a hint of rich barrel char. In the mouth, the wine is packed with red plum, freshly roasted coffee, milk chocolate, and the richness of toasted French oak barrel. Flavors of clove and nutmeg dance throughout the lengthy finish. This wine hails from The Pozzan family who reside in Napa! Many of you remember meeting Matt Pozzan during his past two visits to the Wine House!
2018 Traversa "Noble Alianza" Blend, Uruguay
This blend of Marselan , Tannat & Merlot has been such a fun wine to sell. Not only for its unique grape blend but for the fact it hails from Uruguay! Familia Traversa has 60 years and 3 generations of winemaking and continue to be leaders in Uruguay. This blend offers an intense ruby color with violet tones. A fresh herbal aroma with hints of green pepper and spice notes make a seductive nose. Elegant structure, fleshy and complex flavor. Ideal to accompany semi-hard cheeses, red meats, game roast, and casserole meals.
2015 Ocone Apollo Aglianico DOCG
I have to admit that before this little gem arrived, I had never tasted that Aglianico grape. This wine hails from the boot heal of Italy outside of Naples in the Campania region. The Apollo is aromatic and refined with plum and pepper notes. Dry, full-bodied and friendly with bright cherry and berry flavors and hints of pepper and herbs. While delicious now, the structure and balance make this an ideal wine for now or in years to come. It is certainly one of our top sellers in the shop! Wine Spectator 89
2016 Chateau Meillier Bordeaux, Bordeaux, France
Château Meillier has been home to the Duprat family for three generations. Their 85-acre vineyard is situated about the highest elevation point in Entre-deux-Mers, about 500 feet above sea level. This is high for Bordeaux, and the area is known locally as La Butte de Launay. The soil here is dominated by clay and limestone, and is well suited for producing rich, fruity Merlot and structured Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is dark ruby in color with ripe, red fruit aromas. medium-full bodied and
structured with generous – almost jammy – fruit, balanced by gentle
acidity, and ripe tannins. It pairs well with anything off the grill and soft cheeses!
Wine Enthusiast awarded this vintage 90 pts!!!
2018 Trewa Malbec, Famatina Valley, Argentina
When we think of wine from Argentina, we mostly think of Mendoza. This little gem hails from the Famatina Valley, a remote, dry and dusty river valley in the foothills of the Andes which is high in altitude. This area is mostly known for the famous white Argentine grape called Torrontes but Malbec, Bonarda and Cabernet are likewise grown in this valley. This 2018 vintage is rich and has a delightfully long finish.
