NV Vinho Verde, Broadbent $9.98 net, $8.98 reorder
Bottled to order and shipped in refrigerated containers throughout the year is what keeps Broadbent's Vinho Verde so fresh and spritzy. At 9% alc., partaking in a glass or two is easy to enjoy. Simple, yet full of charm, serve it as a starter to a meal with salty nibbles like Marcona almonds, Serrano ham, pickled veggies and crusty bread.
2012 Falerio, DeAngelis $11.98 net, $10.78 reorder
A family-run estate that farms organically, this white from southern Marche is comprised of mostly 80 year old vine Trebbiano with two ancient varieties, Pecorino and Passerina. Unoaked, the Falerio is aromatically floral with citrus flavors and excellent acidity. A platter of seafood linguine or a bowl of saffron-scented Risotto would do nicely here.
2013 Sauvignon Blanc, Matthew Fritz $10.98 net, $9.88 reorder
A Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc for under $25? Impossible, or so we thought until this one came along. We've carried wines from MF Wines before, and know that their connections in the wine biz enables them to source outstanding fruit at prices that allow them to produce unmatched value wines. Melon and citrus flavors dominate; try it with chicken Picatta.
2012 Rosé Les Cimels, Château d'Or et de Gueules $13.99, $11.19 reorder
In classic Provençal fashion, Diane Puymorin blends 40% Cinsault with 40% Grenache to give her Rosé a delicate and subtle essence of the southern French countryside. Aromas of herbs blowing in the mistral waft from the glass and the palate crisp and classy. A couple of sips of this Rosé, and you'll be saying, "Alors, moules et frites s'il vous plait."
2012 Gavi DOCG, Ernesto Picollo $10.99, $8.79 reorder
The delicious Gavi wines from Ernesto Picollo have become stalwarts of our Italian import section. Each vintage they come rolling in, and each vintage they go rolling out ... usually in case quantities. Why not? Crisp white wine from Piemonte for such a low price has got to make you scratch your head and think, "Hey, there's something to this direct-import thing." A great wine with seared scallops served upon a bed of wild rice and spinach.
2012 Pinot Auxerrois, Domaine Ehrhart $16.99, $13.59 reorder
Pinot Auxerrois is considered to be one of the finest clones of Pinot Blanc. It is naturally low-yielding and the berries are smaller increasing the skin to juice ratio. This imparts more flavor and concentration to the wine, which suits our palates just fine. Farming organically for over a decade, the Ehrharts have another winner on their hands here.
2011 CMS Columbia Valley Red, Hedges $11.98 net, $10.78 reorder
Washington's Hedges Family makes terrific wine at all price levels. The CMS, a blend of Cab, Merlot and Syrah, is no exception. Dark and fruit-driven, this affordable red has garnered a strong following at TWH. The tannins are kept in check, so good on its own or with heartier fare like braised Brisket, chicken in 40 cloves, or good ole' meatloaf.
2009 L'Artisan Languedoc, Laurent Miquel $14.98 net, $13.48 reorder
This Languedoc red is 80% Syrah with the rest Grenache ... a classic southern blend. The Miquel family has a long history of winemaking in the region yet only recently has Laurent joined the family business. Balanced, briary berry notes and supple tannins define this red. A Hangar steak with a pat of blue cheese would be a superb match-up!
2008 Tempranillo-Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah, Gargola $11.98 net, $10.78 reorder
The suppleness of Tempranillo dances elegantly with the forcefulness of Cabernet in the Gargola. This wine hails from the region of Extremadura in western Spain, bordering Portugal. The added benefit of bottle age has tempered the youthful fruitiness and now a smooth-edged red has emerged. Try with a chickpea and kale stew or grilled, spicy Chorizo.
2009 Côtes-du-Rhône Les Quatres Terres, Domaine Santa Duc $16.99, $13.59 reorder
Quatres Terres = Four vineyards. Winemaker Yves Gras selects fruit from Rouaix, Vacqueyras, Seguret, and Rasteau for this ever-popular blend. The average age of the vines is over 30 years, and he doesn't de-stem his fruit. All tank fermented with no filtration, this Côtes du Rhône is deep and earthy, yet fresh and complex. Drink it with pizza.
2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Vinum Africa $17.99, $14.39 reorder
Yes, Cabernet Sauvignon from South Africa! Proprietor Alex Dale's goal here was to combine the structure of Old World Cabernet Sauvignon with the sense of place one finds in Stellenbosch. It sees a little new barrel treatment which lends some complex aromas and textures to the wine. A great one to pour along side marinated ostrich steaks.
2010 Syrah, Domaine Saint Antoine $10.99, $8.79 reorder
Situated between Nîmes and Avignon, Domaine Saint Antoine is reminiscent of the famed vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with large stones scattered throughout the property. These stones maintain the heat from the southern French sunshine keeping the vines warm and helping the fruit ripen. Their 2010 Syrah is rich and juicy with great balance making it a cinch to pair with anything meaty and red sauce based. How about capellini and meatballs?
