Schloss Gobelsberg Riesling ($18.99): An earthy touch combines with the ripe lemon-zest notes on the nose. The palate focuses purely on lemon with a lip-smacking juicy core of freshness. This is light, dry, tart and tingling with refreshment and verve.
Vallana Gattinara ($36.99): Herbs, underbrush, rose petal, dried berry and a balsamic note are some of the aromas you’ll find in this elegant Nebbiolo. Remarkably youthful, with bright red cherry, fresh raspberry, clove, and white pepper with fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. Food Pairing Venison stew, lasagna, short ribs.
Cune Rioja Gran Reserva ($34.99): Inspired by the original gentleman distiller and our founder, Gentleman Jack undergoes a second charcoal mellowing to achieve exceptional smoothness. Notes of caramel and the classic notes of charred oak and banana leading into a rich and smooth finish.
Paul Jaboulet Crozes-Hermitage Domaine de la Thalabert ($45.98): The finest vintage to date, better even than the stellar 2010, the 2015 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert is a gorgeous, deep, layered, and incredibly satisfying Crozes. Blackcurrants, olive tapenade, truffles and earthy notes all emerge from this full-bodied, gorgeously textured and seamless 2015. With fine tannin and no hard edge, it can be drunk today or cellaring for 15-20 years.
