.....89 points too!!

Yes..... This is too good to be true! We just bought a huge amount of unsold 2011 Nouveau. Our vendors know that, if the price is right, we'll take it all, and we'll pay our bill.

“It’s Nouveau time again and the “King of Beaujolais,” Georges Duboeuf has come through with another in a series of grapy juicy, new Beaujolais. This is all Gamay all the way sporting a deep purple-ruby color, ripe strawberry aromas and flavors, full tannins, crisp acidity, 12.5% alcohol. If you’re looking for a quaffing red at a good price, Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau fills the bill.” $10

"Picture this....."
"Picture this: Friday evening, the pizza just arrived, sausage, pepperoni, OK even anchovies if you insist; maybe a salad lightly dressed, vinegar, oil, whatever. What to drink is the only part of this Friday night ritual in the homes of millions of Americans where there will be no disagreeing… that is if you reach for the ’09 Redi Sangiovese. More and more we’ve seen wines from Italy bearing the name “Sangiovese” and as customers pick up these bottles quizzically examining the labels, ah, that’s the “teachable moment” for a Sommelier. Surprised to learn that Chianti is not a grape but a region and that Sangiovese is the stellar grape in the wines of Chianti, and also Rosso di Montalcino and, of course, the renowned and more expensive Brunello di Montalcino, wine lovers eager to expand their knowledge and enjoyment of Italian classics are exploring the wonders of Sangiovese. Enter Umbria, almost the smallest of the wine producing regions in Italy. Known historically more for white wine: the ever popular Orvieto; as well as home to the candy capitol of Perugina, Umbria is also referred to as the “green heart of Italy”. Umbrian Sangiovese is the wine Italians drink every day, no occasion needed. Could you be in better company?"

They say $16 (Wine Spectator), we say $7+
Hmmm.....  Grand Cru Beaujolais from a great vintage and a 90 point rating!! I could make a strong case for this wine being worth every bit of $16. But at $7+.....

“This is packed with ripe, almost jammy, black cherry, boysenberry and damson plum fruit flavors, but it's well-balanced by integrated, juicy acidity. The fruit mixes with vanilla and clove notes, wrapping around chewy tannins that raise their heads on the long finish. Drink now through 2014.” ($16)

They say $383.00 (Wine Spectator), we say $168+
“This has density and a chewy quality to its macerated cherry, licorice, mineral and spice aromas and flavors. Elegant, firmly structured and well-integrated, with a long finish of spice and mineral. Not a flattering red, but soulful and expressive of place. Best from 2012 through 2024.” ($383)

"There's nothing better than a Great Everyday Red that drinks twice it's price!!.....
.....The 2009 Liotro Nero D'Avola is so delicious and so dirt cheap... it has to be one of the best values in the store! The Liotro is an I.G.T. Sicily red wine, made from Nero D'Avola grapes. Ruby red in color, the wine has a gorgeous fragrant bouquet with a very pleasant hint of forest fruits. An agreeably velvety taste, well balanced fruit with soft tannins and no hard edges. Perfect for everyday drinking... especially for those nights when you want an extra glass of wine and don't want to open something expensive. This fruity and full bodied wine best evokes the unique characteristics of the Sicilian wines. Highly Recommended!
