Domaine Duffour, Côtes de Gascogne Blanc, France


Domaine Duffour resides in the small town of Lagraulet-du-Gers, and since the early 1980's proprietor Michel Duffour has dedicated himself to producing quality red and white wines.  He has entirely replanted the vineyards with Gros Manseng, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat, having kept the old Colombard and Ugni Blanc vines that he also uses for the production of Armagnac.  Made predominantly with Colombard, along with smaller amounts of Ugni Blanc and Gros Manseng, you will find notes of melon, clean, pure flavors of citrus fruit, with a fresh herbaceous note, and a pleasingly dry finish.


Barone Fini, Pinot Grigio, Italy


Well recognized for producing Pinot Grigio of the highest caliber, Barone Fini Pinot Grigio is crisp and clean and focused.  On the palate it shows subtle citrus and apple/pear flavors and balanced acidity with a finish that lingers.  They were awarded DOC (Denominazione di origine controllata) status in 1975.


El Cortijillo Verdejo, La Mancha, Spain


Vinicola de Castilla in Manzanares (Ciudad Real) is an up to date, state of the art winemaking facility (30,000 sq meters/300,000 sq ft) with the capacity of producing 2 million liters and holding 8,000 barrels. Founded in 1976, it's a privately owned corporation (not a co-op).   This verdejo is very bright with fine floral notes (acacia) and reminiscent of anise and fennel.  The palate is pleasing and tart that finishes clean.


A.A. Badenhorst, The Curator White Blend, Swartland, S. Africa


The vineyards in the Swartland are mostly bush vines growing in granite and slate soils, and sourced from a number of traditional farmers. The Chenin Blanc grape makes up the largest portion of this blend because it is the backbone and structure of this particular wine. The Chardonnay was naturally fermented and took very long to complete the fermentation - resulting in great texture and wacky aromas of dried peaches and apricots and ripe citrus. The Viognier, from one of Badenhorst’s favorite growers and vineyards, just completes the Swartland canvas; some spice and palate length is what it brings.


Bacchus Cellars Chardonnay, California


David Gordon has been the wine director at Tribeca Grill, owned by restaurateur Drew Nieporent and actor Robert DeNiro.  David created the Bacchus label to offer great value California wine by utilizing the many contacts he has in Napa and Sonoma to source the finest grapes available. Producers such as Caymus, Lewis Cellars and Miner Family provided grapes and helped with the winemaking for earlier cuvees.  With 6 months in neutral oak and stainless steel, this wine is medium-bodied and crisp, with subtle apple, pear and citrus notes. A mineral component comes through in the lively, balanced and long finish.


OPN, Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon


The grapes are hand harvested from two of thier best Northern Willamette Valley vineyard sites, La Cantera in laurerwood soil and Sylvia’s vineyard with jory soil. On the nose are aromas of pomegranate, raspberry and hints of violet. The palette is light to medium weight, smooth, with notes of marionberry, cherry & blackberry, with a nice dry earthy finish


Las Perdices, Malbec, Agrelo, Mendoza, Argentina


This is 100% Malbec from Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina. The wine spends 8 months in French and American oak.  Las Perdices Malbec begins with a pleasant aroma of black cherry, black pepper and a little smoke and then shows lots of smooth, rich fruit (mainly black cherry, plum and blackberry) along with touches of aok and more black pepper notes. Possessing good balance, this is a really solid example of a highly drinkable Malbec that still offers a bit of complexity. The wine ends with a burst of spice and then more dark fruit and oak that hangs around for quite a while.


Sophie Pic & Michel Chapoutier, Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge, France


The Côtes-du-Rhône “Pic & Chapoutier” has an extraordinary richness and complexity because of the diversity of the different soils which grapes are coming from (Drôme, Gard, Vaucluse, Ardèche). The different types of soil are composed of clay and calcareous alluvial deposit terraces, clay.  3 Michelin star Chef Anne-Sophie Pic and iconic Rhone producer Michel Chapoutier teamed up to make this Grenache / Syrah blend with aromas of red fruits like morello cherries and a spiciness with liquorice and grey pepper.  The tannins are firm and silky and the wine has a great structure to make the finish long lasting.


El Cortijillo, Tempranillo, La Mancha, Spain


Up front aromas of raspberry and cherry fruit, medium to light weight.  Reminds one of a mythical cross between a Pinot Noir and a Côtes-du-Rhône.  You’ll find minty aromas of black raspberry, vanilla, spice cake, and dried plum with a creamy palate that is lively, dry-yet-fruity, medium bodied and a smooth.  This wine way over delivers for an everyday, balanced sipping Tempranillo from the La Mancha DO in the south-central region of Spain.


A.A. Badenhorst, The Curator Red Blend, Swartland, S. Africa


This is an awesome blend of Shiraz, Cinsault, Mourvedre, Grenache and Pinotage by the genius, Adi Badenhorst from the Swartland region.  These grapes are minimally grown and made naturally.  You’ll find loads of blackberries, blueberries, with smoky meaty qualities.  There is spice and the right amount of acidity and medium grained tannins adding a lovely rustic texture. The finish is balanced, fun, pleasant and juicy.  Basically, very easy drinking.


Bodegas Torre Oria, Monte Meru, Spain


This deep red colored wine is made from 100% Tempranillo.  It is expressive of both dried and jammy red fruits: raspberry, red cherry, and pomegranate.  The Monte Meru comes off as dry and medium bodied with hints of forest floor.  This wine finishes with dried herbs and hints of vanilla obtained from aging in both French and American oak.


Mannara, Primitivo, Puglia, Italy


Puglia is sunny and warm and responsible for some of Italy’s greatest red wine values.  Mannara Primitivo is fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel to keep is fresh juicy appeal.  This primitive demonstrates its warm and sunny place of origin; the extraction of this wine shows a deep, almost purple color in the glass.  The bouquet has notes of warm blueberry, dried blackberry, fig, and zesty herbs leading into a soft and juicy palate of dark fruit, smoky sage, and dark chocolate that finishes silky and warm with hints of tobacco.
