Domaine Lafage Carignan Vieilles Vignes Tessellae 2014 Red French Wine 750 mL
Domaine Lafage Carignan Vieilles Vignes Tessellae 2014 Red French Wine 750 mL

Rated 94 Points Wine Advocate June 2014

Another incredible wine that's shockingly good for the price, the 2013 Tessellae Old Vines checks in as a blend of 40% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre that was aged all in concrete tank. It offers brilliant notes of black cherries, blueberry, licorice, clove and spring flowers in its medium to full-bodied, gorgeously pure profile. Showing more and more finesse and elegance with time in the glass, as well as classic Roussillon minerality on the finish, it has loads of fruit and texture yet is never heavy, cumbersome or cloying. It's hard to believe you can get this quality for the price, but the consumer is the big winner here. Enjoy this rock star effort over the coming 4-5 years, although I wouldn't be surprised to see if evolve for longer.

Most of these wines are custom cuvees made for importer Eric Solomon. All of these are incredible values and should not be missed!

Folly of the Beast Pinot Noir Red California Wine 750 mL
Folly of the Beast Pinot Noir Red California Wine 750 mL

This red takes its name from the great Moby Dick quote “For there is no folly of the beast of the earth that is not infinitely outdone by the madness of men.” It’s our mission -- our madness, if you will -- to consistently deliver great Pinot at an affordable price.

To create this white whale of the wine world, we went to California’s Central Coast - where the foggy mornings and cool evenings have a favorable effect on the heartbreaker grape. A certain amount of skill and tenacity is essential to produce a Pinot of this stature - and Folly of the Beast is proof that a little madness pays off. Aged in new and neutral French oak to enhance notes of sweet spice, this full-bodied Pinot pairs nicely with pork, poultry and cheeses.

Marcel Deiss Alsace Blanc 2015 French White Wine 750mL
Marcel Deiss Alsace Blanc 2015 French White Wine 750mL
91 Points Wine Enthusiast August 2016 for 2014 vintage

"A pure rendition of honeysuckle blossom rises from this wine along with notes of ripe pear. The palate has something both crystalline and stony, pure and distinct. Beyond its central seam of freshness the wine shimmers with rich, earthy nuance of ripe pear on one side, of brisk zestiness on the other. Drink now and until 2020." - Anne Krebiehl MW

Vina Cobos Felino Malbec 2016 Argentina Red Wine 750 mL

88 Winespectator November 2016

"The dried red currant and raspberry flavors are matched to notes of hot stone and dried savory herb. White pepper accents show on the supple finish. Drink now through 2019. 15,000 cases made." –Kim Marcuson

"This sophisticated Felino Malbec carries a deep magenta hue and aromas of dark berries and anise. On the palate, intense, pure flavors of just-picked raspberries, black plum and graphite unfold in velvety layers. Exotic notes of ginger and white pepper carry through the mid-palate to intermingle with firm tannins and notes of cedar on the finish." -The Winery

Bodegas J.A. Calvo Casajus Vendimia Seleccionada 2012 Red Spanish Wine 750 mL
Bodegas J.A. Calvo Casajus Vendimia Seleccionada 2012 Red Spanish Wine 750 mL

92 points Wine Advocate August 2014: "The 2012 Vendimia Seleccionada is a pure Tempranillo from head-pruned vineyards planted in 1950, fermented with indigenous yeast and aged in used French and American barrels. It has a textbook nose of Ribera, with aromas of plums, cherries and strawberries, very typical, with sweet spices from the barrels. An exemplary crianza. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with good weight of fruit, round tannins and flavors that bring back all the notes found in the nose, coming through as a very good Ribera. 20,000 bottles produced. Drink 2014-2017." -Luis Guttierez

Manuel Piquer Lelia Garnacha Syrah 2014 Red Spanish Wine 750 mL
Manuel Piquer Lelia Garnacha Syrah 2014 Red Spanish Wine 750 mL

90 Vinous Media December 2015

(aged for four months in used French and American oak barrels): Opaque ruby. Smoky, focused nose displays intense dark berry and floral pastille scents plus a suggestion of black pepper. Sweet black and blue fruit flavors show good depth and energy, picking up a touch of cola on the back half. Finishes with repeating floral character, fine-grained tannins and emphatic fruity persistence. Shirat is the local name for Syrah, by the way.

Quinta das Arcas Arca Nova Vinho Verde Portugese White Wine 750 mL
Quinta das Arcas Arca Nova Vinho Verde Portugese White Wine 750 mL

tasting notes: The Quinta das Arca "Arca Nova" Vinho Verde is mostly Loureiro (50%) and Arinto (40%) with 10% Trajadura. It comes in at 10.5% alcohol and 6 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is, in general terms, what people expect from the region: a bit of fizz, crisp, light and sunny, and maybe sometimes just a hint of sugar. The fizz here is not overdone and the sugar is modest, nicely balanced by the acidity. This classic style is very well-executed. At a nice price, it should make a lot of folks happy on a warm summer day. Needless to say, it is best drunk young, no matter how long it holds. Being young, fresh and exuberant is what it does best.

The Monteiro family owns four wine estates in Portugal, three in the Vinho Verde region and one in Alentejo. The family company, Quinta das Arcas was founded in 1985 by Antonio Esteves Monteiro and is headquartered in Vinho Verde. Whilst the family produces olive oil, brandy, liquor and cheese, their main business is wine – through Quinta das Arcas they produce Conde Villar and Tapada de Villar. The family's holdings in Vinho Verde are in Valongo and Penafiel – 300 acres are planted to indigenous regional varietals.
