RED WINES

OREGON

2014 Resonance, Pinot Noir, Resonance Vineyard, Yamhill-Carlton, Willamette Valley, Oregon (S) 59.99/615.49

Resonance is the venerable Maison Louis Jadot’s first venture outside of Burgundy. Crafted by Louis Jadot’s world-renowned winemaker Jacques Lardière, the fruit for this estate bottling hails exclusively from ungrafted rootstock planted on one of the oldest dry-farmed vineyards in the Willamette Valley. The results, you might imagine, are stunning! Gleaming with a translucent ruby robe, Resonance’s Pinot Noir explodes with deep impressions of black cherries, cola, vanilla bean husk, and smoky dark minerals. Sappy and palate staining, the wine follows through with a chewy core of cherry fruit accented by barrel notes of smoke and vanilla. The Jadot touch is evident in the wine’s dense fruit, suave texture, coiled energy and youthful vigor. While it can be enjoyed now, this wine is built for the long haul, and we recommend cellaring it for at least a decade to allow its latent complexities to unfurl. Pair with heartier fare such as roast beef, lamb, squab, and earthy morel mushrooms.
Josh Raynolds, Vinous: 92 points

2015 Goodfellow Family Cellars, Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon (S)
19.99/215.89

In warm Willamette Valley vintages one seeks the deft, minimalist, elegant touch of a masterful winemaker like Marcus Goodfellow. Casting a classic crimson-garnet robe, Goodfellow’s 2015 Willamette Valley Pinot presents a beautiful bouquet of Bing cherries, crunchy cranberries, brown spices, and smoky earth. Fresh and zesty on the palate, the wine conveys a gorgeous core of cherry fruit framed by savory tannins and complex notes of bay leaf, cinnamon, and sassafras. Sappy, brisk, and sporting an appetizingly stemmy grip, this lovely red-fruited Pinot demands food and rewards with impressive versatility. Pair now and over the coming five years with broiled salmon, roast chicken, gratin dauphinois, and sauteed mushrooms.

FRANCE


2014 Angelique Leon, Chinon, Loire Valley, France (S) 15.99/172.69

Angelique Leon assumed the reins of her family’s estate with the 2002 vintage. Her vineyards and winery lie in the great Chinon village of Savigny-en-Veron. Slowly and methodically, Leon has converted her estate to sustainable farming, manual harvesting, and minimal intervention winemaking. Her 2014 Chinon is a wine of pure harmony, reflecting a deep young claret robe and classic Chinon aromas of black currants, black cherries, salumi, savory herbs, and gravelly minerals. Fresh, vibrant, and absolutely delicious, Leon’s Chinon balances a core of black fruits with juicy acidity and a tannic backbone that brings the wine into brilliant focus. At once both quaffable and serious, the wine works well sipped by itself or as a versatile partner to grilled hanger steaks, roast chicken, potato and root vegetable recipes, and grilled portobello mushrooms. Enjoy now and over the next five years.

2014 Chateau Recougne, Bordeaux Superieur, Bordeaux, France 13.99/151.09

Over the past two decades Chateau Recougne has established itself as one of the greatest and most consistent Bordeaux values. Perched on a hillside near the border of Lalande-de-Pomerol, the estate's siliceous clay soil is rich in iron oxides and an outstanding terroir for the cultivation of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. An opaque black-claret color in the glass, Recougne’s 2014 casts classic Right Bank aromas of plums, cherries, cassis, tobacco, cedar, and earth. Sporting fine tannins and a velvety texture, the wine blossoms on the palate with further suggestions of chocolate, herbs, and graphite minerals. Lovely notes of cassis and cigar box reemerge on the long, generous finish. Delicious now, we believe the 2014 will mature beautifully over the coming five to ten years, developing additional complexity and nuance. Pair with roast beef, game birds, hearty roasts of lamb, and earthy braised lentils.
“One of the best Bordeaux Superieurs money can buy…” – Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

2016 Domaine de la Biscarelle, Cotes-du-Rhone Villages, Rhone Valley, France (S) 14.99/161.89

Essentially a baby Chateauneuf, Domaine de la Biscarelle’s Cotes-du-Rhone Villages features a core of Grenache (55%), accented by Syrah and Carignan, with a dollop of Cinsault thrown in for extra complexity. A deep, opaque black plum color in the glass, the wine opens with Chateauneuf-like aromas of clove-scented cherry fruit accented by hints of cinnamon, freshly cracked black pepper, licorice, herbs, and Seville orange zest. Deep, intense, and satisfying on the palate, plentiful tannins sneak in and serve to frame the wine’s chewy kernel of black currant and black cherry fruit. A persistent stony soil undercurrent segues the wine to its long, lingering finish suggesting nutmeg, cloves, star anise, baker’s chocolate, bitter cherry skin, and garrigue. This is a deep, resinous, and complete Cotes-du-Rhone Villages – and one that delivers way beyond its price tag. We suggest buying this by the case for enjoyment now and to serve over the next ten years with roast leg of lamb, dishes featuring porcini mushrooms, anchovy-rich tapenades, and braised hare.

ITALY

2015 Fattoria Selvapiana, Chianti Rufina, Tuscany, Italy 15.99/172.69

Fattoria Selvapiana is the beacon of all that’s unique and compelling about Chianti’s northern Rufina zone. With rave reviews from all the major critics, Selvapiana’s wines are enjoying success like never before. Selvapiana’s brand new 2015 Chianti Rufina release bursts from the glass with a translucent garnet robe followed by classic Chianti aromas of Bing cherries, fresh rose petals, aged leather, tamari, and calcareous earth. Full and ample on the palate, the wine frames its generous palate-staining expressions of Morello cherry and plum fruit with plentiful fine, chewy tannins and juicy acidity. Notes of sweet tobacco, red miso, star anise, blood orange, and cloves join resurgent waves of smoky minerality on the wine’s long, spicy finish. Buy this beauty by the case to enjoy now and over the coming decade with grilled burgers and steaks, Tuscan bean stews, rosemary-scented roast lamb, and hearty eggplant casseroles. Chalk up another winner for Fattoria Selviapiana!

2013 Castell’in Villa, Chianti Classico, Tuscany, Italy 23.99/259.09

Much to our great pleasure, we’re again able to present Castell’in Villa’s superb 2013 Chianti Classico, a wine that will have lovers of old-school Barolo, Brunello, and Chianti dancing around the shop counter. The estate issues some of the most old-school, long lived Chiantis from its vineyards in Chianti Classico’s southernmost Castelnuovo Berardenga zone. Sporting a crimson-garnet hue and classic Chianti aromas of pie cherries, tar, menthol, and leather, Castell’in Villa’s 100% Sangiovese Chianti Classico offers a fleshy, red-fruited palate expression and superb chalky soil transparency. Suggestions of Bing cherries, figs, and red plums grace the palate and give way to complex hints of tobacco, bay leaf, licorice, sage, and baker’s chocolate. Firmly tannic on its long finish, the Castell’in Villa is first and foremost a food wine and should be paired with hearty, rustic fare like rich pasta dishes, roasts of lamb or beef, and stews. Drink now to reminisce about the way great, age-worthy Chianti used to be, then cellar enough to last you ten to fifteen years.

2014 Scarpa, Barbera d’Asti, Casa Scarpa, Piedmont, Italy (O) 19.99/215.89

Founded in 1854, the Antica Casa Vinicola Scarpa is one of the grand, aristocratic, but woefully unknown names in fine Piemontese wine. While the house is renowned for its long-aging Barolos and Barbarescos, it was among the pioneers that elevated Barbera into a serious wine. This is Scarpa’s fresh and incredibly delicious Barbera from their estate vineyard in Castel Rocchero, the heart of the Monferrato zone. A deep and youthful crimson-tinged ruby color, Scarpa’s Barbera opens with gorgeous, spicy aromas of black raspberries, cranberries, licorice, and tar. Vibrant and lively on the palate, the wine offers bright black raspberry fruit, sprightly acidity, and earthy suggestions of morel mushrooms and saddle leather. Bright, dry, and tangy, Scarpa’s Barbera finishes with soft tannins and an earthy, mushroomy complexity that few Barberas can match. Pair this delicious wine now and over the next decade with all things Piemontese: egg-rich tajarin with a butter and sage sauce, risotto con funghi, beef brasato, polenta, and salumi. It will also pair well with roast chicken, burgers, and pan-seared pork chops.

2012 Colli di Castelfranci, Vadantico, Irpinia, Campi Taurasini, Campania, Italy 13.50/145.80

In the Campi Taurasini DOC, the Aglianico grapes hang for an especially long time and are among the last in Italy to ripen. Intentionally crafted to be more approachable and less austere, Campi Taurasini can be considered a kind of younger sibling of Taurasi. It is a wine that is should be easy to drink but also one of spirit, quality, and sense of place. Opaque black plum in the glass, Colli di Castelfranci’s Vadantico casts classic, smoky, volcanic soil-driven aromas of Szechuan peppers, macerated cherries, stemmy herbs, and camphor. Notes of pomegranate, tobacco, cinnamon, star anise, and pink peppercorns emerge as the wine lingers on the palate. Piquant and smoky, the Vadantico reaffirms its volcanic origins on its long, spicy and oh-so-satisfying finish. The Vadantico will prove a wonderful pasta wine that will complement sauces rich with olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, and pine nuts. Delicious now served with the aforementioned pasta dish, eggplant casserole or a spit-roasted leg of lamb, it will easily reward a few years’ patience in your cool cellar.

2015 Vallana, Spanna, Colline Novaresi, Piedmont, Italy 18.99/205.09

Renowned for intense, characterful, long lived wines from the Alto Piemonte, Vallana’s Spanna is a 100% Nebbiolo vinified traditionally in cement and aged six months in large oak casks. A beautiful black cherry color in the bowl, swirl the Spanna vigorously to coax its lovely aromas of pomegranate, orange oil, smoky soil, salumi, and white pepper. On the palate, pomegranate and cherry fruit join with plentiful old-school tannins, balancing acidity, and complex notes of orange-scented potpourri, tobacco, mushrooms, and ferrous soils. Long, zesty, and brimming with character, this is a superb and unusually affordable expression of Alto Piemonte Nebbiolo. Pair this beauty with both classic hearty Piemontese cuisine and with everyday fare such as pizza, pasta, burgers, and pork chops.

WHITE WINES

OREGON

2016 Goodfellow Family Cellars, Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley, Oregon (S)
15.99/172.69

Marcus Goodfellow’s expressions of Pinot Gris are among our very favorites from the Willamette Valley. Goodfellow Family’s 2016 Pinot Gris blends fruit from the esteemed Bishop Creek (Yamhill-Carlton) and Whistling Ridge (Ribbon Ridge) Vineyards. A classic lemon-gold in the glass, the wine opens with aromas of smoke, raw Brazil nuts, lemon zest, and acacia blossom. Full bodied yet deft on the palate, Goodfellow’s Gris presents subtle notes of smoke, lemon juice, quinine, and salty minerals. Crisp, coiled, and briskly acidic, the wine finishes long and taut with a latent core of complexity. While Goodfellow’s Gris can be broached now, please be sure to serve it at cool cellar temperature – rather than chilled – and give it plenty of air to fully unfurl. Ready to drink now, or stash in your cellar for three to seven years and wait for the genie within to work her magic. Pair with broiled salmon, roast chicken, tartiflette, and sauteed morel mushrooms.

AUSTRIA

2016 Nigl, Gruner Veltliner, Freiheit, Kremstal, Austria (S) 18.99/205.09

2016 is shaping up to be a classic Austrian vintage. Nigl, unquestionably one of Austria’s elite estates, crafts focused, chiseled wines of impeccable detail and transparency, and this is their finest Freiheit in years. From the deep Löss soils on which Gruner Veltliner thrives, the 2016 Freiheit conveys the shimmering acidity, transparent clarity, and persistent mineral tension that we so adore. The wine casts a pale green-gold hue followed by crystalline aromas of honeysuckle blossoms, jasmine, lentils, and white pepper. Nigl’s Gruner strikes the palate with pure, mineral-driven green melon, lime, and gooseberry fruit accented by suggestions of sweet snap peas, blond tobacco, and lemon thyme. Brilliant acidity transitions the Freiheit to its long, zippy finish, which features echoing waves of deep Löss minerality and brisk impressions of citrus and melon fruits. Enjoy the wine now or over the coming two years with sauteed green vegetables, grilled zucchini, braised pork, and roast chicken.

FRANCE

2016 Andre Dezat & Fils, Sancerre, Loire Valley, France 19.99/215.89

A frequent selection in these pages, Dezat’s 2016 Sancerre is another extraordinary effort that deserves a spot in your cellar and on your table. With the cool, classic 2016 vintage, Dezat’s Sancerre casts a pale, green-tinged gold color in the glass followed by aromas of grapefruit pith, lime juice, muskmelon, freshly cut grass and dusty, chalky minerals. On the palate, the wine alternates waves of juicy citrus fruit, white pepper and herbal notes of nettles, basil, and menthol – all lifted by bristling acidity and an undercurrent of chalky minerality. This is a superb, elegant, authentic Sancerre and the rare Sancerre value. Buy this to enjoy now and over the coming three years with fresh chèvres, poached freshwater fish dishes, oysters, clams, mussels, vegetable risottos, white pastas, and as a top shelf reward for a hard day’s work.

2015 Domaine de Bablut, Anjou Blanc Sec, Petit Prince, Loire Valley, France (B) 19.99/215.89

This is one heck of a dry Anjou Chenin blanc! The Daviau family has owned vines on the hills surrounding the Angevin village of Brissac since 1546. Today, Christophe Daviau manages the Domaine de Bablut with faithful dedication to organic and biodynamic practices. Bablut’s Anjou Blanc Sec opens with a pale gold color and opulent aromas of quince, pear, melon, honey, and heather. Bracing on the attack, Bablut’s Sec fleshes out on the palate to reveal suggestions of pear tarte tatin, curry leaf, cinnamon, nutmeg, bay leaf, and savory schistose minerals. Sappy, textured, and layered, the wine finishes with impressively complex notes of linden blossom, hawthorn, chamomile, bee pollen, juniper, and apricot. Enjoy it now for all its youthful vigor or, better yet, age it five to twelve years for it to gain that waxy resinous texture that makes Chenin geeks swoon. Pair with ceviche, sashimi, sushi, young chèvres, white bean stews, and light fish and poultry dishes.

2016 Paul Pernot et ses Fils, Bourgogne Chardonnay, Burgundy, France 27.99/302.29

The 2016 Paul Pernot Bourgogne Chardonnay is at once rich, textured, and precise, conveying premier cru intensity and soil transparency rarely found in such an affordably priced Cote-de-Beaune blanc. Fashioned from declassified Puligny-Montrachet vines on the Meursault border, the wine opens with a lemon-gold color in the glass followed by rich, golden, Meursault-like aroma of lemon curd, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, and subtle French oak inflections. Long, sappy, and packed with limestone-infused impressions of fresh lemon juice, acacia blossoms, and buttery pastry crust, Pernot’s Bourgogne blanc finishes elegant, rich, and incredibly well balanced. In addition, palpable limestone mineral undercurrent persists from start to finish. Enjoy this beauty now and over the coming decade with roast pork, veal, poultry, white-fleshed fish dishes, and young chevres. Very limited – especially in the short 2016 Burgundy vintage – so be sure to call early to secure your case of this beauty.

NV (2016) Domaine Leon Boesch, Edelzwicker, Alsace, France (B)
15.99/172.69 (1 liter)

The family Boesch are eleventh-generation Alsatian vignerons who adhere to the mystical principles of biodynamics to grow and vinify their exemplary range of traditional varietal wines. A blend of Sylvaner, Pinot Blanc, and Muscat, Boesch’s exotic, aromatic Edelzwicker (“noble blend”) combines leftover wines from the domaine’s finest parcels into a delicious, affordable cuvee. Deep green-gold in the glass Boesch’s Edelzwicker casts captivating aromas of muskmelon, passion fruit, pineapple, smoky minerals, lychee, and sweet spices. Fresh and brimming with energy, the wine presents an amalgam of Alsatian goodness with white pepper and botrytis-driven citrus and orchard fruit backed by suggestions of lemongrass, fennel, and freshly grated ginger. Serve this delicious and versatile wine year ’round with pates, terrines, firm and washed rind cheeses, choucroute garnie with sauerkraut, and savory cuisines from Alsace, Germany, and central Europe. Far more serious than most Edelzwickers, Boesch’s beauty sports a laughably low price and is packaged in a handy one-liter bottle to boot!

HUNGARY

2014 Kiralyudvar, Tokaji Furmint Sec, Tokaji, Hungary (B) 19.99/215.89

Kiralyudvar (kee-rye-oohd-var) is the crown jewel estate of Hungary’s legendary Tokaji region, and their 2014 Tokaji Furmint Sec is simply sensational. Casting a deep lemon-gold color in the glass, Kiralyudvar’s Furmint Sec opens to reveal the high-toned bee pollen, honeycomb, and white meadow flower aromas. Brisk acidity and a generous core of lemon, bitter orange, and white grapefruit grace the palate alongside a riveting flinty mineral undercurrent. A blend of Furmint (80%) and Harslevelu, the wine develops a fascinating resinous texture on the palate, which follows through to a long, clean finish suggesting orange blossom water, quinine, and nutmeg. We recommend pairing Kiralyudvar’s Furmint Sec with young and mature goat cheeses, braised pork, tapas featuring smoked paprika, and assertive Hungarian fare such as goulash. A stunning wine of great character and depth – and a must try!

ITALY

2016 Feudi di San Gregorio, Falanghina del Sannio, Campania, Italy 12.99/140.29

Falanghina is one of southern Italy’s most historic and noble white wine grapes and the Feudi di San Gregorio is unquestionably one of Campania’s finest and best-known estates. We’re absolutely thrilled with Feudi’s newly released 2016 Falanghina del Sannio, sourced from prime hillside vineyards north of Naples. Feudi’s 2016 Falanghina opens with a brilliant lemon-gold color and exotic aromas of cinnamon, lavender, papaya, and piquant volcanic minerals. On the palate, Feudi’s Falanghina reveals a perfumed soil signature expressed through a core of Meyer lemon, honeydew melon, and green pineapple fruit. The Falanghina’s finish is focused, precise, and appetizing, showing notes of white peaches, star anise, and Sannio’s special volcanic terroir. Enjoy this southern Italian beauty young, served with fried calamari, sushi, clams, mussels, squid, vegetarian fare, and seafood pasta dishes sporting lots of extra virgin olive oil and fresh garlic. 2016 is a sensational white wine vintage, and this gets our vote for the finest Feudi Falanghina yet!

PORTUGAL

2016 Anselmo Mendes, Muros Antigos, Loureiro, Vino Verde, Portugal 16.99/183.49

Unquestionably one of the most esteemed producers in Portugal’s Vinho Verde zone, Anselmo Mendes takes Vinho Verde to the next level by focusing on the region’s most characterful varietals as expressed from their most prestigious terroirs. Mendes’s 2016 Loureiro single-varietal Vinho Verde hails from the Lima River Valley where the variety thrives thanks to a strong climatic influence from the Atlantic. Casting a medium straw-gold color, the 2016 Loureiro opens with aromas of pear skin, bay leaf, and juniper. Briskly acidic yet fleshy and suave on the palate, the wine impales the palate with pear and lime fruit complicated by hints of lemon zest, linden leaf, and fresh ginger. Long, lingering, and refreshing, the Loureiro finishes with salty impressions of granitic soil, sweet grapefruit, and lemongrass. Fans of Chenin, Riesling, Albariño, and Arneis should take special note and plan to pick up a case of this beauty for enjoyment now and over the coming seven years with shellfish, crustaceans, delicate fish dishes, and light potato and vegetable tapas. This is a world-class white wine for a pittance!

SPAIN

2016 Manuel Guerra Justo, Via Arxentea, Treixadura y Godello, Monterrei, Galicia, Spain 17.99/194.29

The Monterrei D.O. lies in in the southeastern corner of Galicia, bordering Portugal. Monterrei's inland location makes it warm and dry during summer, a climate that results in fuller-bodied wines as compared with other sectors of Galicia. Manuel Guerra Justo’s Via Arxentea Treixadura y Godello conveys the magic that these two indigenous varietals can perform in the hands of a meticulous, artisanal winemaker. A brilliant gold in the glass, the Via Arxentea bursts with vivid aromas of honeysuckle and jasmine blossoms, green pineapple, yellow plums, and dusty minerals. Broad in texture on the palate yet bracing with freshness and acidity, the wine reveals a kaleidoscope of flavors ranging from Meyer lemon, quince, and clementine orange fruits to fresh ginger, tarragon, and menthol. Impressive mid-palate intensity, wild yeast high notes, and a wonderful interplay among citrus fruit, pit fruit, minerality, and freshening acidity make this one of the most impressive and engaging white wines we’ve tasted from Monterrei. Enjoy now and over the next five years with squid a la plancha, seafood and vegetable paellas, salt cod fritters, and pastas tossed with olive oil.

2016 Palacio de Canedo, Godello, Bierzo, Spain (O) 16.99/183.49

The Godellos of Rueda get all the attention, but it’s Godellos from Bierzo that get our motors running. From fruit grown organically at 2,000 to 3,000 feet on special “pimentero” red clay and slate soils, Palacio de Canedo’s Godello opens with shimmering impressions of lemon pith, lime zest, green apple skin, and honeysuckle blossoms. Brisk and invigorating on the palate, the Godello alternates between high-toned apple, pear, and citrus fruit infused with slate minerals, malted barley, and resinous ginger. Fresh, focused, and long, the wine finishes clean and vibrant with reprises of orchard and citrus fruit accented by spicy slate minerals and a tingling spine of acidity. This is out-freaking-standing Godello and the must-try white wine of this newsletter. Pair now and over the coming three years with all things seafood, fresh chèvres, and light vegetable tapas.


ROSE WINE

OREGON

2017 Day Wines, Babycheeks Rose, Applegate Valley AVA, Oregon (O) 18.99/205.09

In 2006, Brianne Day began traveling through wine regions around the world, working at wineries in Burgundy, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand. During this time she re-established her home base in Oregon at a number of wineries including The Eyrie Vineyards and Brooks. For her own exemplary portfolio of wines, Day employs exclusively native yeast fermentations with low additions of sulfur, and emphasizes minimal intervention in the cellar. A blend of Tannat (64%) and Cot from Oregon’s southern Applegate Valley, these characterful, tannin-rich varieties make lovely partners in Day’s savory rose. The 2017 Babycheeks rose casts aromas of white raspberries, red currants, and pink rose petals. Fleshy and generous on the palate, the wine follows with juicy raspberry and pomegranate fruit, bristling acidity, and savory herbs. High-toned wild yeast notes segue to a long, juicy finish that begs for spring Chinook salmon, Swiss chard, vegetable souffles, or sipped on its own. This will go fast, so please reserve enough to get you through this year and into the next.
