RED WINES

OREGON

2016 Evesham Wood, Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon (S) 19.99/215.89

Always among the finest choices for quality and value, Evesham Wood’s 2016 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir casts a deep, vibrant ruby color in the glass, followed by fruit-forward aromas of black raspberries, cherry blossoms, and brown spices. Crisp and crunchy on the palate, the wine blossoms with waves of black cherry and black raspberry fruit followed by notes of cinnamon and menthol. Zesty acidity and well-buffered tannins frame the Pinot’s fleshy black-fruited core before segueing to a long, tangy finish. Deep, savory, and impeccably balanced, Evesham Wood’s 2016 Pinot is a mouthful of classic Oregon Pinot and an absolute joy to drink. Showing terrifically right now, it will also gain nuance and complexity with another two to five years in the bottle. Pair with just about anything but shellfish and acidic vegetables.

2013 Goodfellow Family Cellars, Pinot Noir, Whistling Ridge Vineyard,
Ribbon Ridge, Willamette Valley, Oregon (S) 27.99/302.29 reg. 31.99

The Whistling Ridge Vineyard in the prestigious Ribbon Ridge AVA features constant breezes, warm days, cool nights, and shallow sedimentary soils only a few inches thick. This combined with winemaker Marcus Goodfellow’s deft touch yields one of the most delicate, elegant, and savory Pinots from the 2013 harvest. Goodfellow’s Pinot casts a pale orange-tinged, crimson-garnet robe from the glass followed by perfumed bouquet of red raspberry, bitter cherry, cinnamon, woodruff, and mustard seed. On the palate, vanilla barrel notes join earthy, fleshy, cinnamon-tinged Bing cherry fruit. Fine tannins appear mid-palate and propel a dusty, peppery, mineral undercurrent while crunchy acidity lifts reprises of raspberry and cherry fruit. Goodfellow’s 2013 Whistling Ridge Pinot is ready for your table right now and over the next seven to ten years, served with roast chicken, grilled salmon, roasted quail, squash sautees, and young chevres.


FRANCE

2015 Joseph Drouhin, Chorey-les-Beaune, Burgundy, France (B) 26.99/291.49

Chorey-les-Beaune, lacking a premier cru and situated on the wrong side of the tracks, is often overlooked by even the most astute Burgundy lovers. Every year, the great Maison Joseph Drouhin produces a superb, affordable, soil-driven Chorey from the domaine’s own biodynamically farmed vineyards. Showing a gorgeous, deep ruby color, Drouhin’s 2015 Chorey casts fresh, vibrant aromas of violets, black raspberries, and aniseed. On the palate, Drouhin’s Chorey conveys a fleshy, fruit-saturated texture and palate-staining intensity. Complex suggestions of licorice, smoke, and kirsch segue to a long and delicate finish lifted by savory, food-friendly tannins and buoying acidity. Enjoy this special Cote d’Or value now and over the coming decade with roast chicken, grilled salmon, seared duck breast, and rich mushroom ragoûts.

2015 Domaine Filliatreau, Chateau Fouquet, Saumur, Loire Valley, France (B) 14.99/161.89

Filliatreau’s Chateau Fouquet is a sixteen-acre parcel on clay and limestone soils near the hallowed town of Breze. Employing biodynamic methods, the father and son team of Paul and Fredrik Filliatreau have captured the essence of Cabernet Franc as expressed in this special terroir. Translucent plum ruby in the glass, Filliatreau’s Chateau Fouquet casts deep aromas of black currants, bay leaf, dried herbs, button mushrooms, and perfumed clay-limestone soil. Plump and generous on the attack, the wine tightens mid-palate to reveal fine tannins, bristling acidity, and a gorgeous dose of perfumed Saumur soil. Long, plummy, dusty and earthy on the finish, the Chateau Fouquet is stunningly delicious and ready for enjoyment now and over the next three years with fresh chevres, braised pork dishes, grilled burgers, and vegetarian dishes employing potatoes, mushrooms, and grilled eggplant.

2014 Elian Da Ros, Le Vignoble d’Elian, Cotes-du-Marmandais, SW France (B) 19.99/215.89

Working biodynamically, Elian Da Ros combines the traditional Bordeaux varietals Cabernet Franc (50%) and Merlot (30%) with the noble Syrah (20%) to create this delicious, refined, and complex red. A deep, opaque black-plum color in the glass, Da Ros’ 2014 Vignoble d’Elian bursts with sappy, old-vine aromas of plums, cassis, tar, black olives, garrigue, and limestone dust. On the palate the wine unfurls to present soft, dusty tannins framing a kernel of chewy black fruits, tar, game, tobacco, and menthol. Generous now but with plenty in reserve, the wine finishes with black fruits accented by reprises of black olives, baker’s chocolate, and limestone minerals. Elian Da Ros is the reference standard for his appellation, and his wines are one of the greatest values in all of France (or the world, for that matter). Buy this wine by the case and enjoy it now and over the coming decade with rib roast, roast lamb, gratin dauphinois, and rich eggplant recipes. Do not delay, as all previous vintages have sold out in short order.

2016 Yves Cuilleron, Syrah, Collines Rhodaniennes IGP, Les Vignes d’a Cote,
N. Rhone Valley, France 18.99/205.09

This is knockout Northern Rhone Syrah that’s polished enough to take to your neighbor’s barbecue while also being authentic and soil-driven enough to please even the most ardent aficionados of old-school Cote-Rotie and Saint-Joseph. Cuilleron’s Les Vignes d’a Cote opens with a classic Northern Rhone Syrah black-plum robe followed by delicious aromas of pepper bacon, stemmy herbs and spicy blackberries. On the palate, the wine is more Saint-Joseph than Cote-Rotie, showing lush plum and black cherry notes mingling with salty, granitic minerals, smoke, lavender, and dried herbs. The wine finishes bright and juicy with vibrant acidity and just enough chewy tannins to balance its exuberant fruit expression. A haunting note of lavender pastille emerges as the Cuilleron’s Les Vignes d’a Cote lingers on the palate. Enjoy now and over the coming five years with grilled lamb, braised rabbit, eggplant casseroles and everyday fare like grilled burgers and pork loin.

2016 Chateau de Peyrassol, Cotes de Provence, La Croix Peyrassol,
Provence, France (O) 15.99/172.69

Founded by the Knights Templar, the ancient Peyrassol estate is located near the Provençal routes traveled by the Crusaders on route to the Holy Land. Crafted from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, Croix Peyrassol’s Cotes de Provence rouge opens with an opaque black plum robe and deep aromas of licorice, cassis, lavender, and black pepper. Suave and ample on the palate, the wine unfurls with layers of black fruits accented by hints of tobacco, dried herbs, and menthol. Fresh, zesty, and lip-smackingly delicious, the wine finishes with additional dollops of vibrant fruit, food friendly tannins, and a lovely note of bourbon vanilla bean. This is the kind of wine with the boldness and inner warmth that will work wonders this autumn and over our long, cold, rainy winter. Pair it now and over the coming few years with any recipe that calls for a lusty, soul warming Southern French rouge.

2012 Domaine Les Chenes Blancs, Gigondas, S. Rhone Valley, France
21.99/237.49 was 26.99

Don’t miss this sensational Gigondas from the excellent 2012 Rhone vintage, at a great price! Consistently lauded by both Robert Parker and Vinous, the Domaine Les Chenes Blancs fashions an old-school, old-vine Gigondas that shows impressive complexity and nuance. Deep plum ruby, Chenes Blancs’ Gigondas opens with textbook aromas black currants, black cherries, licorice, tar, violets, and star anise. Fresh and vibrant on the palate, the Gigondas presents a traditional, chewy kernel of bitter cherry fruit enveloped by plentiful, chewy tannins, vibrant acidity, and suggestions of smoky minerals, tar, oregano, and black pepper. Floral notes reemerge on the back-palate and lead the wine to a long, resonant finish that reprises notes of licorice, tar, game, and black tea. Pair this beauty with roast lamb, aromatically spiced stews, squab, and grilled eggplant.
- Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: 90 points


ITALY

2013 Castello di Bossi, Chianti Classico, Tuscany, Italy 16.99/183.49

This is the traditional transparent, food-friendly, and utterly delicious Chianti Classico that we so adore. Composed exclusively of the noble Sangiovese planted on especially chalky soils, Bossi’s 2013 Classico casts an old-school Chianti robe of orange, crimson, and garnet alongside pure aromas of sweet cherries, leather, mushrooms, and bay leaf. Deft and nuanced on the palate, the wine’s delicate, pure kernel of cherry fruit is laced with suggestions of calcareous minerals, licorice root, menthol, and fine saddle leather. Extended aging in neutral oak casks rounds and broadens the wine’s texture while adding subtle touches of vanilla bean and smoke. Long, lush, and gripping on the finish, the 2013 Bossi Chianti returns again to its rich core of cherry fruit and lingers pleasantly with complex hints of violet petals, cherry skin, and earth. Pair now or over the next five years with light pasta dishes, traditional Tuscan fare, zucchini casseroles as well as everyday foods like hamburgers, pizza and grilled chicken.
- Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: 90 points

2013 Sella & Mosca, Cannonau di Sardegna, Riserva, Sardinia, Italy 13.99/151.09

Sella & Mosca’s 2013 Cannonau (Grenache) Riserva opens with a beautiful, translucent crimson-garnet robe followed by a delicious bouquet of pie cherries, garam masala, leather, tobacco, and underbrush. Graceful in weight yet bold in flavor on the palate, the wine adds suggestions of tart red plums, and smoky minerals alongside leather and cinnamon notes. The wine finishes long and soil-driven, showing plentiful savory tannins, snappy acidity, and delicious notes of cloves, leather, porcini mushrooms, and blond tobacco. Fans of southern French Grenache and bold, earthy, autumnal reds will relish this Cannonau and find it a most comfortable value to be enjoyed now and over the coming six years with dishes featuring tomatoes, eggplant, garlic, lamb, and game.

2015 Benanti, Etna Rosso, Sicily, Italy (S) 17.99/194.29

Dr. Giuseppe Benanti is widely credited for reviving Etna’s indigenous grape varieties and for raising the quality standard in this tradition-rich wine region. Based on a blend of Nerello Mascalese (for color and richness) and Nerello Cappuccio (for structure and complexity), Benanti’s 2015 Etna Rosso offers a lovely rust-tinged garnet robe and spicy aromas of Morello cherries, cloves, fruitwood smoke, and dusty earth. On the palate, Benanti’s Etna Rosso presents elegant, transparent red cherry and tart fig fruit alongside fine, dusty tannins, mouthwatering acidity, and complex suggestions of dried orange peel, leather, cinnamon, and dried herbs. The Rosso’s long, satisfying finish delivers savory, piquant volcanic minerals that mingle with the wine’s spicy fruit core to create one of the most consistently delicious, affordable, and versatile Southern Italian wines on the market. Enjoy now or over the coming five years as a lovely complement to dishes featuring rich tomato sauces, pine nuts, olive oil, and fennel.

2011 Scarpa, Monferrato Rosso, RossoScarpa, Piedmont, Italy (O) 15.99/172.69

Founded in 1854, the Antica Casa Vinicola Scarpa is one of the aristocratic but woefully unknown names in fine Piemontese wine. Renowned for its long-aging Barolos and Barbarescos, Scarpa also crafts this lovely Rosso from the Monferrato hills east of the Langhe. A blend of Dolcetto (90%) and the rare Ruche variety, Scarpa’s 2011 RossoScarpa opens with an opaque black cherry color and aromas of huckleberries, rose petals, cinnamon, and blond leather. On the palate, plentiful savory tannins propel the wine’s old-school kernel of chewy bitter cherry fruit, saddle leather, mint, and orange zest. Dry and appetizingly tannic, the wine begs to be paired 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 thoroughly American fare like burgers hot off the grill, mac ‘n’ cheese, and pan-seared pork chops. Very limited.

2000 Scarpa Dolcetto d’Acqui, SelvaRossa, Vendemmia Tardiva,
Piedmont, Italy (O) 19.99/215.89

While Scarpa is renowned for its long-aging Barolos and Barbarescos, it also crafts this incredibly delicious and lively sixteen-year-old Dolcetto. A deep and youthful crimson-tinged ruby color, Scarpa’s Dolcetto fills the room with gorgeous secondary aromas of mushrooms, underbrush, licorice, and tar. Vibrant and lively on the palate, the Dolcetto’s mature texture layers the palate with perfectly aged Piemontese suggestions of saddle leather, tobacco, porcini mushrooms, and limestone dust. Full bodied, dry, and stunningly complex, Scarpa’s Dolcetto finishes with chewy tannins framing the inner mouth sweetness and velvety texture that only time and patience can bring. Pair this genre-busting late-harvest Dolcetto 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 well also pair well with roast chicken, burgers, and pan-seared pork chops. Very limited.


SPAIN

2015 Bodegas Casal de Arman, Ribeiro Rojo, Eira dos Mouros,
Galicia, Spain 15.99/172.69

The Gonzalez family, who have been making wines in the Ribeiro since the 19th century, founded the Casal de Arman domaine in the late 1990s to showcase the fruit from their exemplary high-altitude vineyards. A blend of Sousón (50%), Caino Longo (40%), and Brancello, Casal de Arman Eira dos Mouros opens with an opaque black plum color. Gorgeous aromas of black plums join with Bing cherry, lavender, and fresh herbs. Fresh and vibrant on the palate, the wine’s energetic black fruit expression couples with notes of salty granite and graphite minerals, blond leather, and bay leaf. Notes of cured meats, game, wood smoke, and bitter cherries mark the wine’s long, vigorous, and satisfying finish. Pair now and over the coming three years with meat, potato, and green vegetable tapas, smoked brisket, dry rubbed baby back ribs, and charred eggplant.

2008 Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez Dehesa, La Granja Vino de la Tierra de
Castilla y Leon, Spain 14.99/161.89 was 16.99

Like everything this talented pair of winemakers touch, the results have been stunning! With a nod to tradition, Fernandez ages the wine two years in American oak and bottles it unfiltered. Opaque black-plum in the glass, the 2008 Dehesa la Granja opens with deep, tobacco-tinged blackberry fruit backed by hints of graphite, smoke, vanilla, and dark roasted coffee. Lush and velvety on the attack, the wine soon reveals an impressive lashing of tannins followed by complex suggestions of tobacco, tar, and licorice. Deep, long, and smoky, the Dehesa la Granja finishes with suggestions of blueberry fruit deepened by barrel tones of vanilla and baker’s chocolate. Tremendously food-versatile, the Dehesa la Granja can be served now and over the coming decade with rich beef, lamb or pork preparations, or with meaty paellas and savory potato tapas.
- Antonio Galloni, Vinous: 91 points

WHITE WINES


FRANCE

NV Val de Mer, (Patrick Piuze) Cremant du Bourgogne, Brut, Non Dose,
France (S) 18.99/205.00

Chablis superstar Patrick Piuze has teamed up with Champagne vigneron François Moutard to create a dynamic sparkling wine project in Burgundy’s far northern reaches. Composed of Chardonnay grown around the village of Tonnerre between Chablis and Champagne, this stunning French sparkling wine gives many lauded names from the Aube more than a run for their money. A deep lemon-gold in the glass, the Val de Mer presents salty, chalky, Cote de Blancs-esque minerals inside a wrapper of buttery lemon curd. Fresh on the palate, with plentiful pinpoint bubbles and a creamy mouthfeel, smoky limestone minerals mingle with suggestions of lemon zest, Golden Delicious apple, hazelnuts, and brioche. Aged an impressive fifteen months on its lees, the Val de Mer finishes clean, persistent, and undeniably reminiscent of something much more prestigious and expensive. Buy this beauty by the case to serve over the coming holiday season (and year ‘round) as you would fine Champagne, Chablis, Sancerre, or other mineral-driven white wine. Pair with pretty much anything except, perhaps, red meats. Undoubtedly, the finest sub-$20 sparkler in ages.

2015 Thierry Laffay, Chablis, Burgundy, France 20.99/226.69

Emerging wine superstar Thierry Laffay produces an impressive portfolio of traditionally-styled Chablis that includes three premiers crus and two grands crus. This is Laffay’s superb “entry-level” Chablis, crafted from vineyards opposite the hallowed premiers crus, Vaillons and Montmains. The 2015 Chablis opens with brilliant lemon-gold color and aromatic suggestions of salty sea breeze, flinty minerals, and crushed oyster shells. Expressions of lemon juice and white grapefruit stain the palate and segue the wine to a classic, shimmering Chablis finish of menthol, gunflint, and oyster shell minerality. Laffay’s 2015 Chablis drinks incredibly well now, but shows the stuffing and structure to improve for another five to seven years. Enjoy with oysters on the half shell, oven-roasted mussels, scallops, crab, freshwater fish preparations, and mild, soft cheeses such as Camembert and Brie de Meaux. Another authentic, affordable Chablis from Thierry Laffay!

2015 Domaine Sangouard-Guyot, Macon-Bussieres, Burgundy, France (S) 15.99/172.69

From a tiny, superbly situated parcel on the border with Pouilly-Fuisse, Pierre-Emmanuel Sangouard takes full advantage of 40-year-old vines and Bussieres’ classic clay-limestone soil to craft a cru Macon of incomparable depth and precision. A bright golden color in the glass, Sangouard’s Macon-Bussieres brilliantly expresses its origins with aromas of dark limestone soil, raw hazelnuts, smoke, and toasty brioche. Deep, intense, and concentrated on the palate, the wine fuses a juicy core of buttery lemon curd fruit with notes of pate brisee, brioche, and a penetrating limestone mineral undercurrent. Head-spinning acidity and delicious suggestions of buttered yellow corn kernels send the Bussieres to a long, mineral-driven finish. As with all selections in Sangouard’s portfolio, this is superb, terroir-driven white Burgundy and a terrific value. Serve slightly chilled as a welcome wine, or pair with herb-roasted chicken, trout amandine, chanterelles in a cream sauce, and light pork preparations.

2015 Domaine Leon Boesch, Pinot Blanc, La Cabane, Alsace, France (B)
16.99/183.49

Impressively powerful and long in the warm, dry 2015 vintage, this is textbook Pinot Blanc in the full-throttle Alsatian style. 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 Alsatian varietal wines. Boesch’s La Cabane casts a bright lemon-gold in the glass followed by smoky aromas of pineapple, Tilleul honey, gardenia blossoms, soil, and preserved ginger. Intense and tangy in the mouth, kaleidoscopic expressions of Comice pears, passion fruit, green apples and ginger explode on the palate deepened by a deft glaze of botrytis. Pair with rich duck recipes, assertive cheeses like Münster, Taleggio or Epoisses, gratin dauphinois, or with hearty meat stews.
- Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: 89 points

2014 Joseph Drouhin, Rully Blanc, Cote Chalonnaise, Burgundy, France (B) 22.99/248.29

For their Rully blanc, Maison Joseph Drouhin sources its fruit from the clay and limestone-rich soils of Rully’s best sites, and every year offers an affordable Burgundy that approaches its Cote-de-Beaune counterparts in textural richness and mineral expression. A gleaming lemon-gold color in the glass, Drouhin’s 2014 Rully blanc offers a bouquet of limestone-infused lemon juice, Bartlett pear, sweet butter, and acacia blossoms. On the palate the wine’s Burgundian soil notes and racy acidity lift delicious suggestions of lemon zest, green pineapple, raw hazelnuts and freshly grated ginger. Drouhin’s Rully finishes clean, crisp, and focused with Chablis-like acidity intensifying complex notes of juicy citrus, yellow plums, and smoky minerals. Drink this delicious, authentic – and sharply priced – white Burgundy now or over the next five years with broiled halibut, grilled salmon, and light poultry and pork dishes.


PORTUGAL

2014 Vale da Capucha, Vinho Regional Lisboa, Fossil, Portugal (O) 18.99/205.09

Vale de Capucha is a 32-acre organically farmed estate just 13 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, north of Lisbon. The fossils found in the estate’s clay-limestone soil inspired the wine’s brand name as well as its beautiful label. A blend of Arinto (40%), Fernão Pires (40%) and Gouveio, Vale da Capucha’s Fossil Branco casts a deep lemon robe followed by fascinating scents of guava, yellow plums, honeysuckle, herbs, and limestone dust. Rich and ample on the palate, the Fossil Branco adds delicious suggestions of lemon drops, sweet cinnamon, quince, menthol, and wet stones. Clean, crisp, yet ample and fleshy, the Fossil Branco finishes long, refreshing, and begging to be paired now and over the coming three years with squid, octopus, potato and eggplant tapas, rich squash dishes, and grilled fish steaks such as ahi, albacore, and swordfish.

SPAIN

2016 Bodegas Albamar, Albarino, Rías Baixas, Galicia, Spain 18.99/205.09

Al alba del mar (next to the sea), winemaker Xurxo Alba crafts this delicious Albarino that wonderfully weaves the variety’s citrus, melon, and tropical fruit characteristics with bristling acidity and tactile saline minerality. Sourced from vineyards of decomposed granite and sandy soils, Albemar’s Albarino casts a pale green-gold color and classic Albarino aromas of lime zest, green pineapple, honeydew melon, and salty sea breeze. On the palate the wine is packed with intense lemon, lime, melon, and passion fruit expressions backed by riveting acidity and complex suggestions of quinine and white pepper. Showing superb transparency and focus, Albemar’s 2016 Albarino finishes with further waves of citrus and tropical fruits, plus a final lashing of saline minerals. This is superb Albarino that will delight now and over the coming two years as a partner to prawns, seafood tapas, vegetable tortillas, fish steaks like swordfish or mahi mahi, sashimi, and mild cheeses.
