2013 Little James’ Basket Press, St. Cosme, Rhone Valley, Viognier
Saturday Only $13.29 (regular $14.99)
“We make this wine on a very simple and classical way. We look for energy, freshness, and aromatic expression. It can be tasted as an apéritif, or be a nice accompaniment to many different dishes such as grilled vegetables, fishes, stilton, blue cheeses, asparagus, chicken with morels, or risotto with truffles…Lemon skin, cooked tangerine, watermelon, peach.”
2014 My Essential Rose, Provence, France, Grenache/Cinsault/Syrah/Carignin/Moourvedre
Saturday Only $16.19 (regular $17.99)
“From the South of France, just over the hill from Aix, a blend of predominantly Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah. The idea is rosé, as I love it; dry and refreshing, smell red yet taste like a lip-smackingly delicious white. Importantly, this is not saignée, it’s all straight to press goodness. Pass the chalice and get after it.” –Importer
2012 Zenato Alanera Rosso, Veneto, Italy, Corina/Rondinella
Saturday Only $26.09 (regular $28.99)
Alanera translates as “black wing,” a reference to the raven, “corvino” in Italian, and homage to the Valpolicella region’s treasured indigenous grape, “Corvina”. 50% of all the grapes harvested to produce this wine are partially dried for 45-60 days. The highly concentrated juice from these partially dried grapes adds an unusually complex spectrum of aromas and flavors to the blend. Brilliant ruby in color, Alanera delights the senses with a variety of aromas and flavors that include fresh and dried cherries and prunes, sweet spice, and hints of coffee and tobacco. On the palate, Alanera is full-bodied with elegant and velvety tannins. Vibrant acidity brings balance and freshness, and supports a long and harmonious finish.
