Wine Spectator 92 Points and #17 on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2017

“This red shows grace and depth. Black cherry, plum, mineral and smoke flavors mingle harmoniously over well-integrated tannins, while lively acidity keeps this focused. Not showy, but all the pieces fit together. Balanced, in the modern style. Monastrell. Drink now through 2025.”

Ramos Pinto 2015 Duas Quintas

Ramos Pinto 2015 Duas Quintas Duoro $14.99

Wine Spectator 90 Points

“This fresh, full-bodied red shows focus, with firm, integrated tannins guiding the plum, wild raspberry and sandalwood flavors underscored by graphite, pepper and spice accents. Aromas of tea and underbrush add detail to the long finish. Drink now through 2023.”

Wine Advocate 90 Points

“The 2015 Duas Quintas is a blend of 39% Touriga Nacional and 34% Touriga Franca, with the rest a field blend of miscellaneous others typical of the region, like Tinta Roriz and Tinta Amarela. About half the juice was aged in wood (20% in well-used French barriques, 30% in tonels) for 13 months. It comes in at 14% alcohol. This is a wonderful and classic regular 2015 tinto. As the pattern goes, this level generally has only modest concentration compared to the Reserva or years like 2011, but it has a wonderfully fresh feel that lifts intensely flavorful fruit. So, too, here—and in a year like this, you can double down on the freshness and flavor. Delicious and fruit forward yet beautifully supported by its acidity, this is a wine that is pretty hard to resist just now. It may not have grandeur, but it is worth leaning up on in its exuberant youth. It’s not just a fruit bomb, by the way. It also has the structure to age a bit. They traditionally do. In this year, though, the gorgeous fruit and fresh feel may make you dive in pretty fast. This is a super bargain in a lighter-styled, fresh red, what I call a “summer red” these days. Don’t drink it too warm.”

2015 Chanson Pere & Fils Bourgogne $19.99

Anyone looking for a reasonably priced entry level Burgundy that delivers exceptional character can look no further.

Wine Spectator 90 points

This has some density to the cherry, berry, spice and smoke flavors, but remains ripe and charming. Firms up on the finish, where earth and spice notes mingle. Drink now through 2023.

Chanson Vire Clesse

2015 Chanson Pere & Fils Vire-Clesse $18.99

Another fabulous value from Chanson, the 2015 Vire-Clesse offers awesome flavors at a unbelievable price.

Wine Spectator 91 Points

Very pure, this white delivers expressive aromas and flavors of peach, apple, spice and oyster shell. Lingers on the finish, with elements of spice and brown butter. Drink now through 2020.

2015 Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva

2015 Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva $12.99

We had their Merlot in a while back and it was just a great bottle of wine for the money. What Santa Ema delivers her is a wonderful bottle of Cab at a very affordable price.

Wine Spectator 91 Points

#29 on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2017

“Dark plum and dried red berry flavors dominate this muscular red, with plenty of minty and savory accents. Medium-grained tannins support chocolate and cream details on the finish. Drink now through 2021.”

Matanzas Creek Winery 2015 Chardonnay

Matanzas Creek Winery 2015 Chardonnay Sonoma County $23.99

Those fans out their of traditional buttery California Chardonnay will love this effort.

Wine Spectator 92 Points

“Creamy vanilla and smoky oak flavors shade the mix of pear, fig, apricot and melon notes in this white, making for a complex, layered effort that’s deep and persistent. Drink now through 2022.”

2014 Substance Cabernet Sauvignon C2

Substance 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon C2 $16.99

This is a smoking deal for under $20. Tastes more like something from California than from Washington.

Wine Advocate 92 Points

“One of the best values I’ve tasted in a long time, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from the team at K Vintners was hand-harvested, natively fermented and aged all in French oak. Smoking good notes of cassis, black currants and hints of plum all emerge from this rich, beautifully textured, layered beauty that has solid tannic grip, a silky, elegant texture and a great finish. It has real elegance and finesse and is a dark fruited, unctuous beauty to drink over the coming 3-4 years.”

2016 De Wetshof Chardonnay Limestone Hill

De Wetshof 2016 Chardonnay Limestone Hill $16.99

This is another wonderful value. Tastes like a fine Chablis, growing on similar limestone soils.

Wine Spectator 91 Points

“A fresh white, with a quinine edge giving the core of green fig, yellow apple and white peach flavors extra zip through the floral-edged finish. Drink now through 2018.”

Wine Advocate 89 Points

“The 2016 Limestone Hill Chardonnay has a light patisserie-tinged bouquet with flecks of almond. The palate is smooth and rounded, unashamed of its tropical leanings—mango, tangerine and guava, leading to a soft and sensual finish. It is totally predictable, but quite delicious. A guilty pleasure maybe?”

2016 Mason Sauvignon Blanc

Mason 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley $17.99

For those of you that like new world Sauvignon Blancs but without the grapefruit flavors then this wine is for you!

“Clean, smooth and crisp, offering a lip-smacking mix of pear, melon and Key lime flavors, with plenty of intensity on the finish. Drink now.”

2015 Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino

2015 Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino $21.99

Their Brunello gets all their limelight but nothing like a nice Rosso to go with pizza or pasta and meatballs. 1/3 the price of their Brunello but this still has loads of quality.

Wine Spectator 91 Points

“Bright, delicate and vibrant, with berry and floral flavors. Accents of earth, tobacco and spice add interest as they linger on the finish. Well-rounded and long. Drink now through 2023.”

2015-Tesch-Riesling-Karthauser

2015 Tesch Riesling Karthauser $19.99

Wine Advocate 92+ Points

“Subtle, pure and flinty on the nose, the 2015 Laubenheimer Karthäuser Riesling Trocken intertwines ripe, but very precise and fresh white fruit aromas with a spicy flavor. On the palate, this is a very intense but also racy, vital, firm and salty Riesling. It has remarkable elegance and complexity. It is quite powerful and has a very good potential to age. Keep this wine for at least another four years.

The Karthäuser is the southwest-facing vineyard above the village of Laubenheim. Shaped like an amphitheater and based on weathered sandstone (Rotliegend), this is a warm location that ensures an early ripening of the grapes. This terroir leads to ripe and spicy, pretty powerful, but firmly structured and elegant Rieslings that can age tremendously well.”
