Alpha Estate Hedgehog Vineyards Xinomavro 2016
Greece – Amyndeon – Hedgehog Vineyard

94 Point Wine & Spirts:  Cold-soaked and fermented in stainless-steel tanks, then aged in white-toasted barrels for a year and in bottle for another, it’s bright and fresh, with no perceptible wood influence. The fruit is cherry-red and layered with spice, notes of wild herbs and fennel fronds accenting its cool feel, but it’s the acidity that gives the wine its tautness and precision.

90 Point Robert Parker: Aged for 12 months in an equal mixture of used and new French barriques. It comes in at 13.6% alcohol. This seems riper than the 2015, which is not a synonym for saying “better,” but I suspect in the long run this will be better.

Retail: $24.99
On Sale Thru 10/31: $21.49

Owen Rowe Sinister Hand 2016        Washington – Yakima Valley

91 Point Vinous: Moderately saturated medium red. Perfumed, highly nuanced nose offers scents of red raspberry, cherry, meat, red licorice, spices and purple sage, plus a whiff of graphite minerality and a faintly candied quality that carries through onto the palate. Savory and classically dry, with its boysenberry and blackberry fruit flavors complemented by salty minerality. The tannins are fairly light but firm.

Retail: $27.99
On Sale Thru 10/31: $23.99
