WHITE


Zilliken Saar. Rausch, Kabinett 2009, Germany - Riesling
From the depths of the Saar (literally the deepest cellars around at 3 levels below ground), this estate owes its reputation to Royal Prussian District Forester, Ferdinand Geltz. Apple. Pear. Honey.

Brovia, Roero Arneis 2011, Italy - Arneis
The name of this wine grape translates to 'little rascal' because it's hard to cultivate. It is, however, very easy to enjoy. Apricot. Peach. Minerals.

Gerard Boulay, Sancerre AOC 2012, France - Sauvignon Blanc
The Boulay family has been making wine since at least 1380, so it's safe to say that they've had some practice when it comes to making Sauvignon Blanc in the Loire Valley. As they say, practice makes perfect... Lemon. Pineapple. Zesty.

Lopez Heredia, Gravonia, Rioja BLANCO 2003, Spain - Viura
Don't let the age of the wine fool you, this is the youngest white wine available from an estate known for it's rich history and tradition in the Rioja region of Spain. It's only fitting that the wine has a bit of rich history, too. Lemon Curd. Almond. Beeswax.

Domaine Romain Bouchard, Le Grand Bois, Chablis 2010, France - Chardonnay
The small parcel of kimmeridgin soil where this wine grows dates back to the Upper Jurassic Period, over 150 million years ago. You'd never know that dinosaur fossils create so much minerality. Lime. Apple. Lazers.

Domaine du Bagnol, Cassis Blanc 2010, France - Marsanne Blend
This wine comes from the most picturesque town on France's Mediterranean coast. If you take a whiff with your eyes closed, it's as if you're there yourself. Handily beats a postcard, any day. White Peach. Lemon Peel. Sea Breeze.

RED


Jean-Paul Brun Moulin-a-Vent 2011, France - Gamay
Cru Beaujolais is the new craze among wine geeks and Moulin-a-Vent may very well be the Promised Land. For many years, Jean-Paul Brun has been at the forefront of the resurgence of quality Beaujolais; A thought-provoking wine that must be tasted! Dark Cherry. Mushroom. Earth.

Thierry Puzelat Touraine Rouge "In Cot We Trust" 2010, France - Malbec
Super-naturalista Thierry Puzelat is creating French Malbec the old school way...with a minimalist approach to his vines. Puzelat shows the true expression of freshness and purity. And P.S.: Cot is a synonym for Malbec in France. Blueberry. Violets. Moss.

Domaine Klein Aux Vieux Remparts, St. Hippolyte, Pinot Noir 2011, France - Pinot Noir
During the 16th Century, forty-two women lost their lives over accusations of witchcraft. It is said that these women challenged that Pinot Noir was excluded from the list of noble Alsatian grapes. Now that we know Pinot Noir is The Noble Grape of the Universe, we can consider them martyrs. Sour Cherry. Rose Pedal. Baking Spice.

Edmunds St. John, Fenaughty Vineyard, Syrah 2011, California - Syrah
Perhaps not what the Spanish conquistadores were looking for, but this gem from El Dorado County, made by one of America's own 'Rhone Rangers,' will satisfy anyone's lust for good wine. Blackberry. Cassis. Cracked Pepper.

Fonterenza Rosso IGT Toscana 'Pettirosso' 2010, Italy - Sangiovese
Wondertwins Francesca & Margherita Padovani are the queens of biodynamic Sangiovese. Making wines in an area of Tuscany where others have modernized, these young ladies kept to their roots, remaining true and traditional. Red Cherry. Cranberry. Rosemary

Occhipinti SP68 Rosso 2012 - Nero d'Avola/Frappato Blend
SP68 is a famous wine route that runs along the vineyards of Occhipinti. The beautiful Arianna Occhipinti has been making wines there since she was 21. Today, at the ripe age of 30, she has gained a cult following for her fresh, lively, and aromatic Sicilian wines. Raspberry. Violets. Electric.
