2010 WYNDHAM ESTATES CABERNET SAUVIGNON (SE AUSTRALIA) 

$9.95 BTL./$51.00 6-PK                                       

This is for adherents to the Credo Affumato of the Holy Conclave of Smoke & Violets, Reformed:  A well aged Cabernet Sauvignon from one of Australia’s oldest producers.  Deeeep dark black cherry, cassis, ripe plum aromas that are echoed on the palate.  Smooth, rich & Classy.  WANT TO BE ENLIGHTENED??  How does $ 8.50 by the 6-pack grab ya!?    

 

2017 GORE SAUVIGNON BLANC (SONOMA, CA, U.S.A.)

$9.95 BTL./$51.00 6-PK

A field blend of Bordeaux & Sancerre clones that is fermented in stainless steel to preserve the bright aromas of fresh cut grass, melon, sage & peach, this has enough body to satisfy you but no wood to get in the way of its refreshing finish.  We kicked the tires on this one with some sautéed Scallops with a touch of curry & finished the next night with some popcorn with salt & white truffle oil.  TWO THUMBS UP! 

 

2014 DISENO RED MERITAGE (A BORDEAUX MADE IN ARGENTINA!)

$8.95 BTL./$45.00 6-PACK

Wow this is Good! Fourth generation Italian-Argentine vigneron practicing traditional Cultura Promiscua (multi-varietal, field-mixed vineyards of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon & Bonarda for starters) with Molto Passione.  Dark, rich & powerful with aromas of flavors of black currants, blackberry, Asian spice & a hint of Mendoza dust.  This one will wipe that fancy Cabernet your wine snob uncle brought to the party off the table and leave everyone else with a big smile & screaming for more.                                                                            

 

MAISON CHEVERNY BLANC (FRANCE’S LOIRE VALLEY!)    

$10.00 BTL.

This estate is considered to be one of the benchmark producers in this small appellation.  This ‘Revelation’ bottling is produced from their oldest vines and is built for aging.  Let’s just say they know what they are doing.  This has a fabulous bouquet that screams Sancerre.  Its robe is radiant. Its fresh nose is aromatic and it’s characterized by its hint of lychee and exotic fruit. It’s mouth feel is a real pleasure, complex and very harmonious. To be served cold with seafood, fish in sauce, asparagus or goat cheese.  DO YOU DO FRENCH?
