Confidencial 2013 Red Reserve, Portugal

Casa Santos Lima is a family owned and operated company dedicated to the production, bottling and selling of Portuguese wines from around 400 hectares of vineyards. Most of Casa Santos Lima’s estates are located in Alenquer, 45km north of Lisbon, in a region where wine production is centuries old and the typical rural landscapes are gifted with enormous beauty. The vineyards are planted on gentle slopes with altitudes between 100 and 220 meters benefiting from an excellent sun exposition and a climate slightly tempered by the nearby Atlantic Ocean, only 25 km away from the property. Casa Santos Lima is the largest producer of “Vinho Regional Lisboa” and is one of the most awarded Portuguese wineries in both major national and international wine competitions. A maritime influence provides fresh summer nights along with gentle winters that are key to the production of quality grapes in this region. This climate helps produce wines with great acidity and a youthful freshness.

WINE ENTHUSIAST 91 POINTS - EDITOR'S CHOICE - "Six months in a mix of French and Portuguese oak has given this wine a rich, smooth character. Produced from a field blend of more than 40 different varieties, the wine is stylishly structured and ripe with blackberry fruits. It is still young and although it is drinkable now, it will be better from 2017."

Tasting Notes - Dark red fruits greet the nose upon smelling; black pepper, ripe plum and midnight garden florals extend the invitation to taste with Pavlovian flair. The foreshadowing in the nose continues as tastes of fresh, vibrant fruits and spices help showcase this big, bright concentrated wine. Mixed berry and plum fruits abound as uplifting acidity and rounded tannins keep the wine from becoming heavy. Fire up the grill or enjoy with charcuterie and cheeses as this hearty balanced red is ready for summer. Item #383545

Casa del Bosque 2015 Pinot Noir Reserve, Chile

JAMES SUCKLING 92 POINTS - "A flavorful red with dried strawberry and lemon. Medium to full body, lovely tannin tension with plenty of fruit. Real pinot. Drink now."

Casas del Bosque is located 70 km from Santiago, the capital of Chile, and 30 km from one of the principal ports of Chile, Valparaiso. It was established in 1993 to be a family boutique winery exclusively oriented to the production of high quality wines. Casas del Bosque has its own vineyards in the Casablanca Valley, the preferred place for premium wine production. Their philosophy is about excellence, in terms of the wine they make, the care they take with their terroir and environment around them and the people they bring aboard the team-- and the proof is in the bottle. This reserva has a nose full of bright red fruits, baking spices, a touch of earth and cola berry. The palate leads with sweet cherry fruit, mixed earthy and savory spices and minerality, cedar wood, vanilla cola. There is ample acidity throughout this very balanced, almost Burgundian, drinks-way-beyond-its-price-point wine. Item #383010

Chalk Hill 2014 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast, California

Since its founding, Chalk Hill has been producing artisan wines from their Estate vineyards in the hills of northeastern Sonoma County. For four decades they studied, prodded, and coaxed their complex terroir to ensure that their Estate wines deliver vivid aromatics, commanding flavors, great character, and regional accuracy. While their 300+ acres of vineyards surrounding the winery will always be the cornerstone of their identity, starting with the 2012 vintage, they started producing our first Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. This 2014 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir comes from extraordinary vineyards throughout Sonoma County, consisting primarily of Foley Family estate Vineyards and fruit from some of the best sites in Carneros, Russian River Valley, Sonoma Valley, and Sonoma Coast.

This wine is ruby in color and showcases strawberry, ripe cherry, oriental spice and toasty oak on the nose. Flavors of cherry cola, strawberry, and forest floor round out the palate with vanilla undertones and a bright acidity. The finish on this Pinot Noir lingers with a velvety softness and notes of maraschino cherry and oriental spice. Overall, this is a fruit-forward style that can be enjoyed in its youth or aged for another few years. Item #210180

Conti 2014 “Origini” Vino Rosso di Alto, Italy

The wine is a blend of Nebbiolo, Croatina, Vespolina, Barbera and other native varieties. The average age of the vines are 60 years CERTIFIED BIODYNAMIC.

ORIGINI is a fruity, mineral and spiced wine produced with the various grapes in the old vineyards grown according to the system called "Maggiorina".

This form of breeding, which has existed for centuries, is made up of three screws, supported by eight chestnut poles, which develop into four cardinal points. The architect Antonelli (designer of "Mole Antonelliana") perfected the bell of the supporting poles, obtaining a self-supporting structure that is more resistant to grain loads.

If the complete manual processing at all the phenological phases of the vineyard, after the 1950s, has led the peasants to abandon this type of breeding, in its recovery it is intended to preserve a significant part of the historic wine heritage of our territory. Item #305333

Philippe Glavier Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs La Grace D’Alphael Grand Cru Champagne, France

WINERY NOTES - "Alphaël, angel of knowledge and light, embodies the pure expression of our Chardonnay Grand Cru: fresh and well balanced, with notes of citrus fruit. With its pale, golden aspect, and glints of emerald, it shimmers with a fine effervescence. The first nose, subtle and elegant, unveils notes of candied quince and a rich mineral essence. It then opens out into flavors of fresh fruit, such as peach, and light notes of orange zest. In the mouth, white flowers lead into the slightly roasted and gingerbread undertone of the finish."

Champagne Philippe Glavier is located in the Grand Cru village of Cramant in the Côte des Blancs. Philippe is a RM (Grower) who founded his winery in 1995 with 3 hectares of Grand Cru vineyards and married Véronique in 2000 who bought with her 1.4 hectares from her families' holdings from Grand Cru Côte des Blancs as well. With many small holdings spread over 47 different plots, this idea for the Gräce d'Alphael Non Vintage cuvée with the idea that these small plots will be picked at optimal maturity at harvest and separate microvinification to offer the possibility to make a single aromatic expression of Chardonnay, for each cuvée.
