Chandon de Briailles Corton Grand Cru Blanc 2013
Chandon de Briailles Corton Grand Cru Blanc 2013Regular price
Your Price: $125.97
The 2013 Corton Blanc actually comes from mainly Corton Bressandes, with 10% from Corton les Chaumes. The nose is clean and fresh with beeswax and yellow flower scents that just need to develop more complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with hints of custard cr??me and nougat on the entry, nicely judged acidity with a harmonious, slightly nutty finish that fans out gently, but does not wish to exert great length. Enjoy this over the next 4-6 years.

The 2013 Montepulciano d?????Abruzzo Vecchie Vigne takes a considerable amount of time to open up and unfurl from its youthful state. It?????s earthy and quite animalistic at first, shaking off musky mineral tones to reveal depths of blackberry, crushed stone and exotic spice. This takes on a much more feminine and lifted feel on the palate, ushering in a pure and vivid display of black cherries contrasted by minty herbs. Tension builds with each passing sip, as the 2013?????s zesty acids combine with youthful tannins to create a clenching sensation that lingers through its long and savory finish. Don?????t make the mistake of dismissing this lean and well-muscled dancer for a lightweight; all it really needs is some time in the cellar to flesh out and reveal its charms.

Red Diamond Cabernet Sauvignon
Red Diamond Cabernet SauvignonRegular price
Your Price: $6.99
Red Diamond sources grapes from the best locations around the world to reveal the distinct personalities of outstanding varietals. Benefitting from California’s warm climate and long growing season, our Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of black fruits and subtle notes of oak. Flavors of creamy cherry and black coffee lead to a soft and supple finish.
This wine pairs well with tomato-based sauces, such as bolognese Puttanesca sauce, are a great match for Cabernet Sauvignon—the sharp flavors of the tomatoes balances the acidity of the wine. Chinese cuisine such as peking duck, mu shu pork, or braised soy pork have high fat levels and slightly sweet hoisin or soy flavors that bring out the fruit flavors in the wine.
Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 8% other red varieties, 4% Petite Sirah, 3% Merlot

Romano Dal Forno Amarone della Valpolicella 2013
Romano Dal Forno Amarone della Valpolicella 2013Regular price Regular Price: $399.99 Sale price
Your Price: $327.97
The 2013 Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta is my favorite wine in the retrospective, along with the amazing 2011, 2009 and 1996 vintages. This wine was released at the beginning of this year, and because Dal Forno skipped over the 2014 vintage, this is the only Amarone we will see for a while (until the highly anticipated 2015 is released). The 2013 vintage is characterized by a slightly more streamlined mouthfeel (which isn't saying much given the baseline enormity of these wines) with carefully etched aromas of black cherry, rum cake, dark chocolate and toasted espresso. The 2013 vintage was balanced overall without the sudden heat waves we saw in the summers of 2011 and 2012. The grapes finished a slow and steady ripening process over an extended growing season. The effect is graceful and focused. Put this bottle aside in your cellar for the decades to come
Southern Belle Precious Syrah 2013
Southern Belle Precious Syrah 2013Regular price Regular Price: $39.99 Sale price
Your Price: $33.97
Spending 18-24 glorious months aging in used bourbon barrels from legendary Pappy Van Winkle, old vine fruit shines through with aromas and flavors of blueberry liqueur, blackberry, black cherry and peppery spice. Then there is a graceful segue into wood smoke, brown sugar, vanilla, and sweet spice that frame all of that ripe and savory fruit very nicely. Super full bodied and full flavored, but smooth and silky on the palate, this is probably about as close as most of us will get to Pappy van Winkle. -PJ Wine
