OLD-WORLD CLASSICS, AND 2015 ROSE
Chateau Miraval Cotes de Provence Rose 2015, France ($25.99): Owned by the husband-wife team of Pitt and Joie, this beautiful rose has aromas of wild strawberries, raspberries, and white flowers, with a soft and silky texture on the palate. NEW ARRIVAL!
Goats do Roam, Red Blend 2013, South Africa ($15.95): A blend of primarily shiraz, grenache and mourvedre, this fun blend is modern, fruit-forward, with berries and cinnamon spice on the nose. The juicy tannins make it an easy pairing with any meats.
Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino 2010, Tuscany ($38.99): A classic year for most of Europe, 2010 Brunellos are both accessible now as well keepers for aging. Orange peel, wet earth, and a mineral streak pair with the opulent dark fruits for a wine that is full-bodied. Wine Spectator 95 points.
Marques de Caceres Rioja Reserva 2009, Spain ($19.99): This generous red delivers ripe plum and currant fruit, with notes of toast, licorice and loam. Firm tannins impart structure, while juicy acidity keeps this lively. Wine Spectator 90 points.
