SOME OF THE BEST WINE DEALS!
Antiche Terre Venete Amore Assoluto 2016
92 Points James Suckling | Organic/Biodynamic
What happens with a top Amarone estate turns its attention to making a delicious value red? Well, one sip of this and you'll be feeling, as the Italians say, "Amore!" In fact, love so strong it will be "Assoluto" - absolute and undying. It's made from the top red grape used in Amarone - Corvina - plus very ripe Syrah and Merlot grown in Valpantena, the only "Cru" subzone for Amarone. "This is a pretty red with blueberries, baking spices, hibiscus, and some elderberries and lavender. If the composure of the firm but juicy tannins and the precision of the acidity left any doubt as to the seriousness of this wine, then the medium-long, crunchy and chewy finish makes it crystal clear."
Boyal Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5L 2018
Black cherry, dried black currants, roasted mushroom and a hint of mahogany aromas. Full-bodied and deep. Flavors of cherry cobbler and chocolate-covered blueberries that transition through the mid-palate with dark chocolate truffle, espresso, and hints of dried tea leaf. Notable earthy undertones from the terroir.

Dime Red Blend 2016
Dime pays tribute to the classic, famed Bordeaux Blend. Predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon (41%) with some Merlot (38%) and Cabernet Franc (21%), this premium red blend is perfect for the Cabernet drinker. The 2016 vintage in Sonoma County produced high quality, deeply colored reds - and Dime 100 is nothing less. Aged in neutral French oak for nine months, it smoothly balances dark cocoa powder with black fruits and shows depth and complexity from start to finish.
Malvira Langhe Favorita 2017
Straw yellow with slightly golden tints. Aromas of pineapple, fresh fruits, and white flowers. On the palate, it is fruity and fresh with a pleasant slightly bitter finish. Ideal with appetizers, salad, fish and fresh cheeses, or as an aperitif.
Metz Road Riverview Vineyard Chardonnay 2016
This is perhaps our finest Chardonnay to date from the Riverview Vineyard. The nose is complex, forward, and pure with hints of stone fruit, grilled almonds, and toasted oak. On the palate, the wine delivers the perfect mix of flavor, richness, and structure.
This is one of those Chardonnays that pairs perfectly with everything from fresh seafood to ripe cheeses.
Roger Goulart Coral Rosé Cava Brut NV
Pale pink color, bright, with abundant fine bubbles and nimbus formation. On the nose, it has fresh and intense notes of red strawberry with a background of sweets and marked varietal character. On the palate, it is fresh and elegant, powerful, and persistent with a silky and balanced finish.
