And as an added benefit to our local customers, you can choose to pick up the wines in either our Berkeley or Mill Valley store as well.
2006 Artadi Vinas de Gain Rioja – 92 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate & 91+ points International Wine Cellar, “Intensely perfumed, sexy bouquet of dark berries, fresh flowers and smoky minerals. Tactile and deep, offering powerful blackberry and mulberry flavors, chewy tannins and very good back-end minerality. Picks up sweet mocha, bitter cherry skin and candied licorice on the long, sappy finish. This wine is showing a more serious personality than I’ve ever seen at this stage.”
Regular retail is $34.99, but a limited offering at $24.99 while supplies last.
2008 Tres Picos Garnacha – Year in and year out this wine gets amazing reviews. Several stints on Wine Spectator’s top 100, 91 point reviews from Robert Parker the last 4 vintages and 90+ from International Wine Cellar (IWC). . .and all of this for a wine under $20.
The new vintage arrives this week and it already received an amazing 91 point write up from IWC, “Exotically perfumed bouquet of dark berry preserves, smoky minerals, potpourri and Indian spices, with a strong note of cracked pepper; smells like a high-end northern Rhone wine. Very spicy and tightly focused, offering juicy red and dark berry flavors and sexy notes of candied flowers and cocoa powder. Finishes with a wallop of sweet red berries and lingering, seductive spiciness; as ridiculous a value as one can find these days.” $16.99
