Belle-Vue Petit Verdot
Medoc, France
$54.99

~ Petit Verdot by Belle-Vue is a wine from old vines (1936, 1940 & 1950)
~ The Petit Verdot grape variety, very difficult to work with, is a remarkable grape variety that reveals itself in great vintages.
~ 100% Petit Verdot: extremely rare in Bordeaux, a signature of the Mulliez vineyards (ch. Belle-Vue, ch. Bolaire, ch. Gironville)
~ 5% of the harvest is aged in clay jars and 20% in new barrels

Acquired by Vincent Mulliez in 2004, Château Belle-Vue comes from an exceptional terroir whose history is intertwined with the one of Bordeaux wines. Formerly the headquarter of an active shipping industry, the Château is now renowned for its vineyards. Already highly recognized in the 19th century, this estate has received many awards: a Gold Medal in Amsterdam in 1895, Silver in Brussels in 1897, in Paris in 1900 and in Bordeaux in 1907. The last vintages were also regularly distinguished in competitions and by the international press.

Since the premature death of Vincent Mulliez in 2010, his wife Isabelle has taken over the management of the property, continuing with determination the work initiated by her husband. This rigorous and enterprising man had succeeded in a few years to impose his 3 properties, Belle-Vue, Gironville and Bolaire among the best values of the Medoc. In 2016, a 100% Petit Verdot wine was added to the Château Belle-Vue range: Petit Verdot by Belle-Vue.

When tasted, Petit Verdot by Belle-Vue has a very unique style. It gives off a rather spicy aspect. The aromas tend towards cherry and morello cherry. The tannic structure is imposing and the color is intense.

Critic tasting note: (2019 vintage) "Petit Verdot, normally the touch of spice in a Médoc blend, comes into its own in this dark-colored, rich wine. With its black fruits and dusty tannins, the wine will age further. Drink from 2023. Roger Voss" - 89/100, Wine Enthusiast 

Caymus Walking Fool
Suisun Valley, California
$27.99


A lush, Zinfandel based blend.   A silky scarlet red with luminous highlights, this wine opens with a lean earthiness—the scent of rustic wood mixes with sweet spice, a whiff of cigar box, dusty pavement and old leather, infused with garden ripe strawberries and cherries. The palate is smooth and lively, featuring flavors of juicy raspberry, the subtle tartness of cranberry, and notes of espresso and smoked meat. Underlying acidity makes this wine mouthwatering, while its tannins lend a gritty yet softly fine texture. On the finish: a trace of vibrant cranberry, luxurious cocoa and an extra kick of spice.

Chuck Wagner founded Caymus Vineyards with his parents in 1972 in Rutherford, California, in the center of Napa Valley. Now Caymus is putting down roots in a neighboring wine region called Suisun Valley. Only a 30-minute drive southeast of Napa, Suisun Valley is less well-known than its more famous neighbor, but shares a similar maritime climate and superb soils. Chuck likes to say that Suisun Valley reminds him of Napa Valley in the 1960s – full of open space, small family farms, meandering waterways lined with native oaks, and exceptional vineyards. Known more for its production of stone fruits, Suisun Valley is increasingly being recognized for its wines.

For the past several years, Chuck has been producing Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif -- Durif is synonymous with Petite Sirah, one of the varietals that thrives in Suisun Valley. Chuck feels privileged to include “Suisun” on a Caymus wine and believes that people will come to know and appreciate the region more and more. The family looks forward to inviting people to explore the special character of a place they consider a “hidden gem.”

2 NEW from Sofos

Sofos “The Wise One“ White
Made with Organically Grown Grapes

Sofos Greek Red
Klimenti, Greece
$13.99

Varietal(s):
80 % Organic Agiorgitiko
20 % Organic Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes:
The color is ruby with violet tinges. The nose has aromas of cherry, red forest fruits and discreet spicy notes. The palate has a well balanced acidity and a medium plus body; fragrant of fresh blackcurrant - blackberry fruit, red pepper and hints of black chocolate. It has a medium-length finish with firm tannins. Enjoy it now or after 4 to 6 years of aging.
Domaine Gioulis

The red SOFOS has a deep ruby color with aromas of plum, sour cherry and hints of truffle and oak. On the palate we found medium plus acidity, soft tannins and a great complexity of flavors such as dried plum, raisin and notes of wet leaves and tobacco. It is a quality red wine which is ready to drink but also with a good potential of aging. It combines the spicy and fruity aromas of the indigenous Agiorgitiko with the structure and the complexity of the famous Cabernet Sauvignon.
Konstantinos Lazarakis

Sofos benefits from decanting to release its aromatics as when they blossom the wine really comes alive. Gorgeous notes of raspberries and blackberries with bramble and fresh cherry pipe tobacco on the nose give way to lush notes of under-ripe blackberry. Boysenberry, black currant, black plum, and sour cherry on the palate. Silky mouthfeel and full body finish with spicy notes of cinnamon, anise, black pepper, and crushed graphite. The flavors linger while the prominent acidity begs for another sip.

Sofos Greek White
Klimenti, Greece
$13.99

Varietals:
80 % Organic Moschofilero
20 % Organic Chardonnay

Tasting Notes:
The 2019 Sofos white is an organic 80/20 blend of Moschofilero and Chardonnay, unoaked, nicely dry and coming in at 13.1% alcohol. It's fresh, appealingly aromatic and elegant. Bright, light and easy, it has a summer-like feel to it. It finishes with some crispness, and it is pretty tasty too. I'm not sure this has either the structure or depth to age, but it doesn't feel thin and it has some tension on the juicy finish. It's a great summer choice for drinking on its own. Drink it young for best results. It is worth leaning up today.
Mark Squires - 'Robert Parker Wine Advocate'

Pale khaki color. Aromas of ripe apricot, honey, cantaloupe, and white peppercorn with a satiny, tangy, dryish light body and a smooth, compelling, medium-length citron, lemon spritz, and almond finish. A delicious warm-weather white that will pair like a dream with shellfish; refreshing, mineral-focused, and effortlessly drinkable.
Tastings.com

This vivacious white is a beach pour with class. Fresh lemon zest and floral aromas and a combination of white fruit, minerals and citrus on the palate are lively and light, but the wine has some weight behind it.

2 NEW from Sordo

Sordo Barbera d Alba
Piedmont, Italy
$22.99

Tasting Notes: 
This Barbera has a delicate and lingering bouquet of rich cherries and fresh herbs and is full-bodied with lovely flavors of blackberry and hints of spice and mild tannins.

Varietal: Barbera

Sordo's Barbera Superiore is grown in the vineyards in Borgata Massucchi located within the municipality of Monforte d'Alba.

Sordo Barolo Perno
Piedmont, Italy
$36.99

Wine Spectator scored this 94 points saying "This wine is complex and harmonious, this red features cherry, plum, licorice, leather, freshly mowed grass and mineral flavors. Backed by vibrant acidity and assertive tannins, yet there is plenty of ripe fruit to balance. Fine length."

Jeb Dunnuck scored this 92 points saying "From Monforte d’Alba, the 2017 Barolo Perno has a darker profile of tar, forested earth, dried currant, and licorice. The palate leads with dark, bitter herbs, gamey earth, and cherry pit, with a forceful tannic structure that is drying and gripping. Its wound-up energy may well open up with time and improve."

James Suckling scored this 92 points saying "Spicy red-fruit aromas and flavors here with some attractive fresh-licorice and aniseed notes. Medium-to full-bodied with a tight tannin framework and a flavorful, savory finish. Very tasty now, but needs a year or two to mellow."
