"..... It’s a screaming deal....."
“A sensational value the readers should snatch up is the 2015 IGP Cotes Catalanes Tessellae Carignan Vieilles Vignes! This full-bodied, ripe, sexy red has incredible purity of fruit, no hard edges and classic notes of blackberries, plums, spice and pepper. It’s a screaming deal.”

“Allomi, why not take Allomi… Not quite a direct song quote, but it works here, as you'll want all of this bottle. It's the savory side of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, with black fruit mingling with a meaty character all the way through.” ($32)

A Platinum award winner at the 2017 Sommelier Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition.

“Dark ruby color. Spicy, fruity aromas and flavors of spiced cherries, chocolate roasted nuts, and pencil graphite with a silky, tangy, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a charming, medium-long macaroon, strawberry compote, and honeyed herbs finish with a suggestion of oak. A juicy, precisely made pinot noir with instant appeal. Best Buy!”
