2015 Izadi Blanco
Spain-Rioja

Winemaker’s Notes: Aged for 3 months in new French oak barrels, Izadi Blanco is straw yellow in color with bright green tones. Succulent fruit in a fresh wine. Well structured and a good acidity rate. A blend of 70% Viura, 10% Malvasía, 10% Tempranillo Blanco, 10% Garnacha Blanca.

Retail: $19.99
On Sale Thru 8/22: $16.99

2013 Izadi Reserva
Spain-Rioja

93 Points James Suckling: Quite fragrant black fruit aromas with concentrated dry tannins to balance them. Plenty of life, too. Better from 2018.

90 Points Wine Spectator: This generous red delivers cherry, berry, vanilla, orange peel and baking spice notes, with light tannins and juicy acidity. Forest floor and tea details give this a traditional character. Drink now through 2023.

Winemaker Notes: Aged for 16 months in French and American oak barrels, Izadi Reserva is a shiny ruby color. Rich aromatic intensity with a nice balance of red fruit, liquorice and spices and smoked hints in the background. Elegant and round in the palate with a long aftertaste that brings back floral and fruity memories.

On his travels Jack liked to record the various new flora and fauna he encountered. One of the most interesting was the Lagunitas Citrusinensis, a pale-ish ale brewed with Sanguinello Blood oranges. Now that’s his type of plant life! It’s also the beer of the week!

2016 Berton Vineyard The Black Shiraz
Australia-Limestone Coast

Winemaker’s Notes: The Black Shiraz is a bold example of Australian Shiraz with deep color and aromas of blackberry and plum over toasty vanilla and spicy oak. The palate is full flavored and intense with rich plum, blueberry, and mocha notes. The tannins are ripe and dense giving great structure and length to the palate.

2015 Famille Brechet Plateau Des Chenes Lirac
France-Lirac

Winemaker Notes: Our interpretation of the beautiful soil of LiracFeaturing an intense purple colorthis wine develops powerful black fruit aromas and a slight hint of smoke and spice.

90 Points Robert Parker: The 2015 Lirac Plateau des Chênes is a modern, somewhat oaky example of the appellation, but it does combine wonderfully pure cherry fruit with vanilla and cedar, leaving some woody tannins in its wake. Drink this medium to full-bodied blend of Grenache (75%) and Syrah (25%) over the next 5-8 years.

90 Points Wine Spectator: Offers a fleshy feel, with dark plum and raspberry coulis flavors racing along, lined with subtle graphite and black tea notes. Shows a dusting of cocoa at the very end. Solid. Drink now through 2021.

Retail: $24.99

Jack never fully understood how “Christmas in July” was a thing. It is too hot to dress up in long sleeves and pants in the middle of the summer. He would much rather battle the heat with a tasty Hefeweizen. So he made Ayinger Brauweisse the beer of the week!
