Here are this summers Wines of the Month…
2011 Matchbook Tinto Rey
Spanish-inspired blend from a modern winery in Dunnigan Hills, CA. The last three vintages of this killer red blend have received 90+ points from Parker as this vintage is yet to be rated. Tempranillo-based, with jags of Cabernet, Syrah, and Petit Verdot makes this a fiery little wine. The Tinto Rey serves up aromas of dusty chocolate, leather, cardamom and allspice with bold, dense flavors of black cherry, cranberry and baking spice. Normally $17.99, we’re featuring this outdoor grilling companion for only $12.98 all summer long.
2013 Ch. St. Michelle Horse Haven Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc
Last vintage graced the Wine Spectator Top 100 wines of the year list for the first time and the Horse Haven Vineyard has been running on all cylinders since. The single-vineyard expression of St. Michelle’s finest Sauvignon in Washington State. Coming from the warm 2013 vintage, this is an aromatic offering, with notes of pineapple, kiwi, herbs and oak spices (40% barrel fermented). It’s creamy in feel, but with tart, vibrant acidity that keeps the palate fresh and lively. On sale for $13.98 net.
2013 Chateau Bonnet Blanc
One of our all-time favorite summer whites is back with the new vintage shining brighter than ever before. This Bordeaux Blanc is Sauvignon Blanc-dominated with touches of Semillon and Muscadelle for aromatics and charm. Brilliant, green, gold. Intense aromas of fresh exotic fruits, grapefruits and box tree. Very typical Sauvignon. Intense aroma on palate. Muscat notes, fresh and lively finish with good length. The perfect summer sipper at $9.98 per bottle for two months long.
2012 Rex Hill Pinot Noir
The 2012 REX HILL Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has diversity and depth of flavor opening with aromas of blackberries, blueberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, plums, quince, and many spices from cinnamon to ginger to star anise to coriander. With time, the nose opens further to reveal earth, tobacco, smoke, game, crushed rock and vanilla. Loaded with deep red, blue and black fruit flavors on the attack, the integrity that all classic Oregon Pinot Noirs possess, pulls the palate back from being too rich and ripe and balances the hedonism of the 2012 vintage with beautifully proportioned acidity and minerality. $23.98 Net
2011 Ch. Croix Mouton
100% affordable, approachable, and extremely drinkable red Bordeaux for everyday. This Bordeaux Superior is ripe and slightly extracted in feel with a taut plum skin edge running from start to finish, along with crushed cherry and blackberry fruit. A good tobacco note wafts through the finish. 90pts from Wine Spectator also helps especially at $12.98 per bottle!
