Calera Chardonnay2014 Calera Chardonnay Central Coast
California-Central Coast

Winemaker’s Notes: This beautiful 2014 Chardonnay possesses delightful notes of hibiscus, pineapple and citrus. Flavors are so wonderfully integrated and balanced; Fuji apple, lemon chiffon and a soft, round, sensuous mouth-feel with a nice bright sweet-tart personality. A delicious wine all around.

92 Points Wine Enthusiast: Josh Jensen’s appellation blend is arguably the best American white wine for the price. This vintage offers squeezed tangerine, fleur de sel, lily, apple blossom, apple fritters and a touch of tropicality on the nose. The palate is more steely in structure, with chalk and concrete minerality followed by grapefruit skin and lime flavors, revealing the slightest hint of balanced butter tones. Editors’ Choice

90 Points Wine Spectator: A clean, pure and juicy white, offering a refreshing mix of ripe pear, apple and melon flavors, shaded by a chalky minerality.

90 Points Vinous / Antonio Galloni: The Calera 2014 Chardonnay (Central Coast) is a gorgeous entry-level offering. Orange blossom, honey, chamomile and wild flowers are all pushed forward, but it is the wine’s textural finesse – especially at this level – that makes it one of the very best values readers will find anywhere in the world.

2015 Orin Swift Abstract Red Blend
California

Winemaker’s Notes: As soon as a glass is poured, aromatic notes of Luxardo cherries, ripe black plums and raspberries billow, with intricate hints of coffee, mocha and caramel in the background. The entry is expansive with dark briar fruits, cola and cocoa with tannins that are soft and dusty. The wine finishes with a hint of wild cherry and a lingering sweet oak presence.

90 Points Wine Spectator: Moderately complex, though loaded with zesty, supple fruit and offering appealing notes of black raspberry, smoky beef and cracked pepper. Grenache, Syrah and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2022.

Retail: $36.99

Lafage Miraflors Rose PHOTO2016 Domaine Lafage Miraflors Rose
France-Provence

Winemaker’s Notes: Miraflors Rose offers lots of framboise, strawberry and rose petal characteristics in medium-bodied, juicy, gorgeously quaffable style. Named after an old estate located in the heart of Domaine Lafage, Mas Miraflors, the Miraflors Rosé is sourced from old vines of Grenache Gris, nearing 80 years old, planted near the Mediterranean. Added to this is some Mourvedre that Jean-Marc planted about 15 years ago. This a direct press rose with the color coming from the skins of the pink Grenache Gris berries, and naturally, from the much darker Mourvedre.

Catena La Consulta Malbec PHOTO2015 Catena La Consulta Malbec
Argentina-Mendoza

Winemaker’s Notes: The Catena Malbec Appellation La Consulta shows a dark violet color with deep purple tones. The nose offers aromas like red fruit and ripe, concentrated dark berries with fresh herbs and floral notes like lavender and violets, some traces of vanilla and tobacco. The mouthfeel is rich, with raspberries and blueberries, spices notes and a touch of mocha. The finish presents soft and well-structured tannins with bright, crisp acidity that gives the wine exceptional length.

91 Points Robert Parker: For now the whole appellation range comes from single vineyards, and the 2015 Appellation La Consulta Malbec is sourced from an old 25-hectare vineyard in the banks of the Tunuyan river in the higher part of La Consulta, very close to Altamira, where the soils have clay and boulders from the river. This part of the Valle de Uco in a cool vintage like 2015 produced a serious, cold Malbec, less expressive in the nose but with a mineral sensation and a palate where the tannins are extremely fine. It developed a note of graphite with time in the glass.
