".....buy this at more than 50% off the original price....."
"For all our Apothic Red fans, we have a wine for you, Homage Ravenous Red. It’s a beautiful blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. Well balanced and smooth, there is a juicy, silky quality displayed in this amazing wine. This fruity, crowd pleasing red will be great with pizza and burgers. So quaffable it makes you feel like drinking it right out of the bottle and at this price you may want a case or two."

“This balances bright flavors of macerated cherry, currant and plum with spice, earth and tar elements, backed by a firm structure. The finish is crisp and long. Best from 2020 through 2037.”

"..... impossible to resist....."

“Always a value and well-known Rhône oenologist Philippe Cambie’s own label, the 2015 Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu Calendal is a blockbuster blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Mourvèdre that offers full-bodied, rich, even decadent notes of cassis, crushed flowers, licorice and hints of vanilla bean. It has a killer mid-palate, sweet tannin and a big finish, all of which make it just about impossible to resist. Still, it should keep nicely for at least 5-7 years.”

"..... delivers backbone but with a rich, creamy texture....."
“Few of Italy’s numerous wine regions have taken more slings and arrows over the years than the Soave district in northern Italy’s Veneto region. Much of it was deserved, for the object at one time was volume. Quality took a back seat until the Italian wine renaissance of the 1980s, when it became apparent that to compete globally Italian vintners needed to clean up their act. Soave has been reborn and Pieropan has been at the forefront of the surge in quality. The 2016 is a beauty, showing a nose of lime blossom. On the palate the wine exhibits aromas of marzipan, citrus, crunchy green apple, pear and honeysuckle. Beautifully structured, it delivers backbone but with a rich, creamy texture. Sensational stuff.”

"..... full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long finish....."
"Terredora boasts one of the most consistently strong line-ups in Campania. The estate was created when the Mastroberardino family split up some years ago. Lucio Mastroberardino gave up the right to use his family’s illustrious name, but he kept the vineyards. Based on what I have tasted in recent years, I would say he made the right choice.

Terredora’s Aglianico is a gem of a wine. This soft-textured, generous red is full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long finish. There is nothing fussy here, just a flat out delicious bottle of Aglianico to enjoy. Even better, this is a terrific value.

“This is the rare Golden State Sauvignon Blanc that actually tastes varietally true. Its fruit flavors resemble grapefruit and lemons, and hints of fresh herbs and newly cut grass linger in the background. Why more California producers can’t make Sauvignons that taste like this is beyond me.”
