Dehesa La Granja 2011
Spain

Winemakers Notes: A true farm-to-table wine, the 2011 Dehesa La Granja is well-structured, potent, velvety, and fleshy wine in the mouth, boasting powerful, rounded tannins. It has subtle hints of ripe red berries with smooth, rounded balsamic notes and traces of smoky, toasted elements.

92 Points James Suckling: Big, ripe blackberry and smoky nose with hints of earth and caramel. A full-bodied red with plenty of positive, dry tannins. Pleasantly warm, but also fresh and animating, this is delicious now and should hold through at least 2021.

Retail: $19.99
On Sale Thru 03/19: $16.99

Kara-Tara Pinot Noir 2017
South Africa

Wine Maker’s Notes: Grapes are sourced from carefully-selected premium vineyards in the Elgin region. After being crushed into small open tanks, the must is cold-soaked for two days. 30% of the wine is fermented with whole clusters. Only French oak is used for aging, 10% of which is new. Kara-Tara Pinot Noir is an elegant, lightly-wooded style of Pinot Noir showing classic strawberry and red cherry notes coupled with a hint of spice. A firm, yet silky-smooth tannin structure supports the lovely bright fruit characteristics of the wine.

Retail: $23.99
On Sale Thru 03/19: $20.49
