NV Adria Vini Italia Pinot Grigio Sparkling Rosé

Rich and Robust

2015 Lapostolle Gran Selection Cabernet Sauvignon
Rapel Valley, Chile
"Fresh blackcurrants and crushed black pepper and violets. The tension and fruit are so precise with grainy tannins and a savory, umami character that permeates right through the juicy finish." 91 Points James Suckling
Regular Price $19.99 per bottle, $239.88 per case
Sale Price $14.99 per bottle, $179.88 per case

2016 Catena Cabernet Franc San Carlos
Mendoza, Argentina
"The Appellation range keeps growing, and the new name this time is the 2016 Appellation San Carlos Cabernet Franc, produced with grapes from the most fashionable red variety at the moment. It is from 20-year-old vines in El Cepillo, one of the cooler places of San Carlos in Valle de Uco. Furthermore, 2016 was a particularly cool year, so the wine is really a "cool climate" example. It matured in French oak barrels for one year before bottling. It has tons of black pepper aromas and flavors, balsamic and with perfect ripeness." 92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 
Regular Price $29.99 per bottle, $359.88 per case
Sale Price $19.99 per bottle, $239.88 per case

2016 Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Carmenere
Colchagua & Casablanca Valley, Chile
“I love how the leafy complexity of dried sage, pine cones and forest floor combines with earth and paprika, but then with very fresh fruit, such as blueberries and citrus. Medium to full body, chewy and grainy tannins and a bark-laden finish.”
 94 Points James Suckling
Regular Price $34.99 per bottle, $419.88 per case
Sale Price $24.99 per bottle, $299.88 per case

2015 Catena Alto Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
"Wonderfully fresh violets on the nose with just a hint of clove. Rich, powerful, creamy and fresh, with a long, polished finish. A serious Argentinian malbec with great balance." 93 Points James Suckling
Regular Price $59.99 per bottle, $719.88 per case
Sale Price $39.99 per bottle, $479.88 per case
