2010 WYNDHAM ESTATES CABERNET SAUVIGNON (SE AUSTRALIA)                                          

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!?     $9.95 BTL./$51.00 6-PK

2014 SILVER PALM MERLOT (BIG SUR, CENTRAL COAST, CA!)

$75 on the list at El Gaucho! Let’s be honest Merlot often gets no respect. Even though the most expensive wines from Bordeaux are.......you guessed it, crafted with Merlot. We liberated about 20 cases of this ‘extremely drinker friendly’ Merlot from one of our local sources. Wine Enthusiast 90 points- This wine is inky dark in color, potent in flavor and huge in structure. The aromas are like smoke, dried herbs, and blackberry, the flavors are concentrated in black currant, while the texture is saturated with fine tannins that make it almost chewy. This is full bodied, dry, and needs either time to open up or some juicy protein alongside. $10.00 BTL.

2019 ATALAYA ALMANSA TINTO (DARK IS THE NIGHT, ESPANA!)

NEW VINTAGE!  I cannot think of any wine more fashioned for grilled foods. This ultra-rich blend of Alicante Bouchet & Monastrell from dry-farmed, head-pruned vines planted on limestone soils and averaging 45 years of age. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French barrique for 12 months. It has a mixture of berry fruit and spicy aromas, a very expressive wine. It has some dusty tannins and dark berry flavors. It needs powerful food. $10.00 BTL.
