2019 Pinot Grigio
ROCCADORO - Sicily

Honey, white peach, almond and yellow flowers best describe this wonderfully silky, smooth and creamy Pinot Grigio from Sicily.  The wine closes with a refreshing crispness making for  an enjoyable experience.

Pinot gris, pinot grigio or Grauburgunder is a white wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. Thought to be a mutant clone of the pinot noir variety, it has a grayish-blue fruit, accounting for its name but the grapes can have a brownish pink to black and even white appearance. The word pinot could have been given to it because the grapes grow in small pine cone-shaped clusters. The wines produced from this grape also vary in color from a deep golden yellow to copper and even a light shade of pink, and it is one of the more popular grapes for skin-contact wine.

Pinot gris is grown around the globe with the "spicy" full-bodied Alsatian and lighter-bodied, more acidic Italian styles being most widely recognized. The Alsatian style, often duplicated in New World wine regions such as Marlborough, Tasmania, South Australia, Washington, and Oregon, tend to have moderate to low acidity, higher alcohol levels and an almost "oily" texture that contributes to the full-bodied nature of the wine. The flavors can range from ripe tropical fruit notes of melon and mango to some botrytis-influenced flavors. In Italy, Pinot grigio grapes are often harvested early to retain the refreshing acidity and minimize some of the overt-fruitiness of the variety, creating a more neutral flavor profile.

2018 Pecorino "Offida"
Azienda Agricola DeAngelis - Marches, Italy
From the oft-forgotten Pecorino variety that is now re-emerging from the Marche.  The commune of Offida was awarded DOC status in 2001 and DOCG in 2010.   This is a great producer from the area. De Angelis are a family run winery that hand harvest, use natural yeasts, and have been recently been certified organic.  Pecorino is often overshadowed by the more famous Verdicchio, which has many appellations nearby. Verdicchio is lean and crisp, while Pecorino has a softer more inviting character with aromas of fresh white peach, vanilla, spring florals and fine herb notes on the palate. This vintage is also showing soft orange and white pepper spice flavors with a gentle briny finish.  
Fermented and aged in stainless steel. Medium-bodied and balanced with excellent acidity.  Delicate floral and citrus aromas & flavors with hints of lemon drop and juicy yellow-apple flavors alongside a crisp finish.

2019 Vinho Verde
QUINTA DA RAZA  -  Minho, Portugal
50% Arinto, 35% Azal and 15% Trajadura.  Vinho Verde is not a grape, or a blend, it's a region. In the lush, green, rolling hills of northern Portugal, dotted with the orange rooftops of family households, is the region where Vinho Verde wine is produced. Although there are several origin stories behind its name, including the idea that it is harvested early and should be drunk young, many people in the region suggest that the name comes from the verdant natural setting.

Comprised of nine sub-regions in the Douro Valley, each with unique micro-climates but generally dominated by granitic soils, the Vinho Verde wine region starts just below the Portuguese-Spanish border, and extends all the way to the Atlantic Ocean, where it meets with the city of Port (where most Port wine is made). 
The famed dangerously drinkable, spritzy white from Portugal famed the world over.  This is a bright, light and finely poised wine. It has a fine lemon zest and bitter oranges with a lively aftertaste.

2018 Riesling Monopol
WEINGUT MAXIMIN GRUNHAUS - Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany
The newly named “Monopol” is Maximin Grunhauser’s brilliant, affordable estate riesling. Monopol refers to the fact that the Grunhauser estate owns the entire hillside of vineyards. Most vineyards in Germany are shared amongst dozens of growers, so this is quite uncommon. The wine is anything but uncommon as its aromas and flavors burst out with green apple, green pear, green tea, key lime and minerals. Dry on the palate with sizzling acidity and freshness.
"The 2018 Maximin Grünhaus Riesling Monopol blends fruit from the three grand crus and opens with clear, aromatic mango fruit and, after a while, lots of flinty notes of crushed stones. Silky, pure and enormously salty on the palate, this is a stunning, complex, tensioned and almost challenging Estate Riesling with lingering salinity and immense complexity and charisma. A spectacular wine at this price point. Outstanding. Score 91."

2014 Brunello di Montalcino
ALTESINO - Tuscany, Italy  -  HALF BOTTLE
Brunello di Montalcino is the ambassador of top quality Italian wines around the world, the first wine to receive the DOCG appellation and is widely considered one of Italy's greatest red wines.

"This wine opens to a thin and streamlined appearance. The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino mirrors the main characteristics of the vintage with a clean mouthfeel and bright berry aromas. The Brunellos from 2014 are better suited to near or medium-term drinking and that's definitely the case with this wine. I'd suggest a pairing with your favorite pasta dish topped with creamy cheese sauce. Sangiovese has the natural acidity to cut through any fatty foods. This expression from Altesino achieves more fruit ripeness in 2014 with aromas of plum, dark cherry and dried cassis. Oustanding. Score 92."

2016 Chianti
DREOLINO - Tuscany, Italy
 90% Sangiovese - 10% Merlot. Aged in steel and concrete vats. The Dreolino Winery was founded back in 1939 by Gino Tanini. The rather unusual name ‘Dreolino’ is a diminutive form of Andrea, the name ofbGino’s father, who was known locally in his day as Drea. When Gino was born, to indicate the little baby’s lineage, the villagers started to call him Dreolino, or ‘little Drea’.  At that time there was another Gino Tanini in the village of Rufina, and so to avoid confusion, the founder decided to use his distinctive nickname as the official name of the company.  Chianti is the world-famous Tuscan wine. Brilliant ruby-red in colour, it is vibrant, soft and highly fragrant.

 THE WINE ENTHUSIAST

"The 2018 Cotes du Rhone is 100% Syrah, sourced from the Gard (on the right bank of the Rhône) and Vinsobres (left bank, higher elevation). Violets, black olives and cassis and blueberry flavors provide terrific varietal expression in a medium to full-bodied package framed by silky tannins.

2014 Pinot Noir
WEINGUT FRIEDRICH BECKER - Pfalz, Germany
For many years now, the Becker estate located in Schweigen, very far south of the Pfalz on the border of Alsace, has been one of the top Pinot Noir producers in Germany. The best Becker Pinot Noirs compare favorably with the best Burgundy has to offer.  In 1973 when Fritz Sr. took over the estate from his father, he stopped selling grapes to the local co-op and started bottling and selling his own wines. He was also one of the first that independently, but in parallel with Dr. Heger, Fürst and Meyer-Näkel, started using barriques for his Pinots. In the beginning he was very frustrated trying to successfully in his words “transferring the gift of nature into fine wine”, as his colleagues in France had been doing for many years.  In 2005 Fritz Jr. took over the winemaking at the estate and his father continued to oversee the outside vineyard work. In 2007, the Beckers started to work with lower must weights more in the range from 92-98 Öchsle rather than previously with 100 Öchsle or more. They learned that physiologically ripe fruit needs acid more than additional sugar.

2016 Pinot Noir
GRYPHON CREST - Baden, Germany
Intense black plum and dark cherry perfume with bitter chocolate notes showing amazing depth for entry level Pinot Noir. Forest floor, smoked nuts and a mélange of pure fruit components add to the complexity. The velvet texture and richness on the palate form a veneer of dark fruit flavors giving the wine breadth and opulence. The alcohol of 14% is beautifully integrated. Even after being open for three days the wine still shows freshness with interest.
"Intense black plum and cherry perfume juxtapose savory tones of smoked nuts and wet earth in this fresh and fruity yet composed wine. Plump black fruit flavors are broad and rich but framed by brisk acidity and a trace of mineral complexity. A fantastic introduction to German Pinot that's surprisingly easy on the wallet. Outstanding. Score 90."

2014 Pinot Noir
MINISTRY OF THE VINTERIOR - Russian River Valley, California
Pinot Noir aficionados agree that the best California Pinot Noir comes from the Russian River Valley where early morning fog, warm days, an afternoon breeze from the sea and cool nights combine to make for some very happy Pinot Noir grapes. The higher alcohol content speaks to the warmer microclimate of the vineyards.
This intriguing Pinot Noir opens with aromas of cherries, orange peel, violets, and fig leaf. The spicy mouth is densely layered with flavors of dried Turkish apricots and vanilla bean, and the finish lingers long with flavors of rich caramel and cloves.

CANTINE ELVIO TINTERO - Piedmont, Italy
The commune of Mango is the heart of Moscato country, and 20 of the Tinteros’ 30 hectares are planted to this grape. Their largest parcel is in the Sorì Gramella vineyard, whose full southern exposure and gradient of more than 20% pamper the grapes with many long hours of sunshine, without even casting shadows from one row to the next as is the case in most vineyards.
