ORIN SWIFT COTES CATALANES “D66” GRENACHE’09 – This is a true Orin Swift wine- rich, opulent, hedonistic, and seductive. Almost black in color, it’ll coat your glass with silky layers of dark fruit, spice, and moist earth. Notes of bitter cherry, raisins, toasty vanilla, and exotic Asian spices are all perfectly balanced out in the 15.2 alcohol content.   A nice amount of tannin on the finish distinguishes it from just your average big nasty fruit bomb.  It’s truly gorgeous.”…82.99

SEPTIMANIA LANGUEDOC-ROUSSILLON CORBIERES ROUGE’16 – “Corbières, a sparsely populated, mountainous area within Languedoc, is home to the vineyards that produced this rustic wine, composed of 60% Carignane, 20% Grenache and 20% Syrah. The flavors of blueberry, plum and blackberry could best be characterized as plump and supple, with a captivating spice element on the finish.”…….34.99

SHATTER ROUSSILLON GRENACHE’13  – A collaboration between Napa’s Joel Gott and Dave Phinney, the semi-opaque Cotes Catalanes Grenache is a smoking blend of 100% Grenache that comes from the singular, black schist soils located around the village of Maury, in the Agly Valley in the Roussillon. Aged in French oak (a small part being new) and hitting 15.6% natural alcohol, this sexy, full-bodied, pedal-to-the-metal effort bears plenty of resemblance to the old-vine, 100% Grenache efforts coming from Chateauneuf du Pape. Kirsch liqueur, blackberry, toasted spice, garrigue and hints of vanilla bean all flow nicely to a seamless, silky, yet decadently styled red that has fine tannin, and a blockbuster, heady finish. It will certainly not appease those looking for lightweight aromas and flavors, but count me a fan.”………..47.99

VIGNOBLES BERTHIER DOMAINE DES CLAIRNEAUX SANCERRE ROUGE PINOT NOIR’13  –  “So light in color, this Pinot Noir is almost a rosé. The texture and structure, though, are definitely of a red wine. Firm tannins give a backbone to the red cherry fruitiness and fresh acidity.”……..54.99
