Top 10 List

Top Ten New Arrivals for October!

J L Chave Mon Coeur Cotes du Rhone 2011

This is a blend of Grenache and Syrah from purchased fruit that has wonderful texture, layers of fruit, and character. While it has plenty of weight, the true success of this wine is all the flavor that bubbles just under the surface.  

Domaine Le Fay d’Homme Muscadet 2011

The Fay d'Homme is a pure expression of the Gneiss soil. The acidity is present but not aggressive, with expression of white fruits, citrus and blossoms. The wine is immediately very well balanced and enjoyable right after bottling.

Aquitania Cabernet 2011

This delicious Cabernet has some SERIOUS firepower behind it. It has an elegant Macul nose that combines fresh red fruit, cassis, dried herbs, and red pepper. The palate is complete with smooth tannins and loads of red fruit.

Hecht & Bannier Languedoc Blanc 2012

A blend of Piquepoul and Roussanne, the 2012 Languedoc Blanc is a fresh, vibrant white. The Piquepoul Blanc brings this crunchy and vivid character and the Roussanne's citrus fruits and white flowers produce this striking wine with lovely aromatics and a full silky mouth-feel.

Billard Hautes Cotes de Beaune 2012

The 2012 is a layered with fresh cherries and red berries with touches of dried herbs and spice. The weight sits nicely on the palate and finishes with a nice wave of acidity. Bravo Billard. Bravo...

La Liquiere Faugeres Les Amandiers 2012

Les Amandiers is made from young vines resulting in fresh berry aromas : red currant, strawberry, black currant. A pleasant and tender wine, offering great aromatic freshness.

Banshee Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2012

Charming aromatically, this Chardonnay immediately hints toward Asian pear and apple flavors with an underlying cut of lemon framed by hints of Tahitian vanilla from fine grained French oak. It offers hints of more tropical flavors without ever fully realizing them and finishes with ample verve.

Barco de Piedra 2011

"It exhibits notes of flowers, licorice, new saddle leather, black currants and cherries. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, complex and on a fast maturity curve, it should be consumed over the next 2-3 years." 91 Points, the Wine Advocate, #202 Aug 2012

Ludovicus 2011

Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, smoky minerals and white pepper, plus a suggestion of dried rose. Silky on entry, then firmer in the middle, with flavors of red and black fruits and floral pastille. The floral quality repeats on the lively, subtly powerful finish.

Rickshaw Cabernet 2011

Dark plum, coffee grounds, and cassis. This base is buttressed by a few mountain sources that provide a streak of red fruit, verve, and structure.

Corvidae Mirth Chardonnay 2014

Region: Columbia Valley

Mirth means happiness and this wine is just that. 100% stainless steel fermented, this is a clean, vibrant Chardonnay. Flavors of golden delicious apples, Meyer lemon and just a hint of ripe tropical fruit marry together beautifully while a balanced acidity gives it a bright clean finish. Pair this refreshing Chardonnay with a chanterelle herb frittata, lemon roasted chicken, or a mango avocado and smoked salmon salad (yum!).

Cueto Tendencia Rioja 2009

Region: Rioja

VARIETALS: Tempranillo  60 % Mazuelo  15 % Garnacha 20 % Graciano  5 % (45 year old vines). Fine, fresh berry fruit and well integrated oak. Smooth, balanced, silky dark cherries.



Domaine Gerard Metz Pinot Noir 2014

Region: Alsace

Fresh and pretty Pinot Noir from Alsace.  The fruit is bright and clean that is supported by subtle dried herbs and good acidity. 


Weingut Pittnauer St. Laurent 2013


Very Pinot Noir like with beautiful fruit, acidity, and a range of flavors: herbs, mint, minerals, and stones. Very good acidity and balance. 


Albert Bichot Savigny-les-beaune Les Peuillets 2011

Region: Burgundy

"Noticeable wood sets off ripe, earthy and rather somber plum and dark currant aromas. There is a suave texture to the supple and very round flavors that display a hint of minerality on the ever-so-mildly austere finish that is clean and agreeably dry." 88 Points, Allen Meadows,
