Featured Wines:
Sexto Terra Alta 2007 750ML
Sexto Terra Alta 2007 750ML
sku: 13334

Sexto is fresh, fruit-laden, spicy and quite distinctive. This delicious wine captures the unmistakable flavor and character of Northeastern Spain.

The winegrowing region, Terra Alta, is the Southern-most DO in Catalonia and has the lowest rainfall and the highest summer temperatures. Terra Alta literally means "high lands," and has superb microclimates with great soil and fabulous drainage. Vines grow on steep terraces identical to Priorat, its Northwestern neighbor.

Winemaker's Notes: "Sexto" means sixth in Spanish. The wine is a blend of six different grapes, Grenache, Carignan, Tempranillo, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and the ancient grape Lledoner Pelut Noir. The winemaker said it was the addition of the Lledoner Pelut Noir (a cousin of Grenace) that made all the difference in the wine.  She said she wanted to make a wine that is at the same time original and traditional with a modern twist. Sexto captures the traditional taste of Spain with a decidedly modern twist. Enjoy!

D. Pedro de Soutomaior Albarino 2008 750ML
D. Pedro de Soutomaior Albarino 2008 750ML
sku: 11591

Tasting Notes: Albarino produces medium to light-bodied white wine that is clean and intense with ripened fruit aromas (pinapple, passion fruit, melon, and dessert pear), citrus (grapefruit), floral and light fresh grass. The wine is fresh and balanced with bright acidity and an easy-drinking quality that has propelled it to new heights of popularity. This wine is held in high regard by Americans and Spaniards alike and is by far our most popular Albarino.

Albarino is an indigenous grape grown in Galicia, the border region separating Spain and Portugal. It is often referred to as the signature white wine grape of Spain. It is thought to have originally been Riesling brought to the Rias Baixas by monks in the early middle ages. The D. Pedro de Soutomaior is produced be Adegas Galegas, a small, modern winery, owning 60 hectares of vineyards. Plantings of high trellised Albarino thrive in the cool, lush Mediterranean climate of Galicia and are grown as organically as possible. Vinification includes some maceration with skins to bring out the Albarino character and cool fermentations preserve the lively fruit and floral notes. D. Pedro de Soutomaior is the flagship Albarino of the house. more

Valentine's Day Recommendations:
Gruet Brut Rose 750ML
Gruet Brut Rose 750ML
sku: 10624

Winemaker's Notes:
This nearly garnet Rose, like many non-vintage sparkling wines, is aged 24 months en tirage. It has a lovely, bright floral bouquet with hints of strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. On the palate, it is rich and fruity in a dry, Brut style. The flavor of berries continues on the palate, revealing more strawberry, raspberry, cherry. This sparkler is lots of fun and very festive, but production is limited to 5000 cases per year, so don't miss out! more
