Bobal De Sanjuan Vinas Viejas 2012 Product #29655 (In Stock)
Bobal De Sanjuan Vinas Viejas 2012 Bobal De Sanjuan Vinas Viejas 2012

Big and rich with plenty of power and a nice floral note, too.

"This 100% Bobal (60 to 80-year-old vines), aged four months in concrete, represents a terrific buy. It possesses excellent delineation as well as lots of blueberry and sweet and sour cherry fruit intermixed with notions of chalk and strawberries. Medium-bodied and fruity with attractive texture as well as purity, it should drink well for several years."Wine Advocate 88 points

Milbrandt Vineyards Brothers' Blend Columbia Valley 2012 Product #30959 (In Stock)
Milbrandt Vineyards Brothers' Blend Columbia Valley 2012 Milbrandt Vineyards Brothers' Blend Columbia Valley 2012

Here's a big, rich, plush and very smooth blend of seven different Washington grapes:  Caberenet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Malbec, Grenache, Tempranillo and Barbera all given 16 months in oak for extra depth.  Not at all heavy, but full of blackberry and blueberry pie fruit with accents of chocolate and spice.  The fruit and spice turn more fresh on the long, soft, finish.  A great cookout red!

Anton Bauer Blaufrankisch Reserve Wagram 2012 Product #31803 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Blaufrankisch Reserve Wagram 2012 Anton Bauer Blaufrankisch Reserve Wagram 2012

Perhaps Austria's very best red grape, Blaufrankisch remains relatively unknown here in the USA.  This deep, rich, and spicy example from Anton Bauer could help fix that a bit.  It's a barrel selection made by importer Klaus Wittauer and Anton that Klaus liked so much he put one of his artist wife's paintings on the label.  20 months in oak plus extra time in bottle has done this nothing but good! Very plush and deep with a very long finish, the interplay of fruit, chocolate and exotic spice is utterly captivating.  A great example and highly rated by Austira's preeminent wine guide:

"Spicy black berry flavor, nuances of dark cherries, a touch of dried fruit and cardamom. Complex, dark berry fruit, prominent, well integrated tannins, ripe cherries, chocolate finish, good development potential, a fine food companion."  Falstaff 92 points

Carne Humana Napa Valley Red Blend 2012 Product #31543 (In Stock)
Carne Humana Napa Valley Red Blend 2012 Carne Humana Napa Valley Red Blend 2012

Named for a giant, pre-statehood ranch that stretched from Rutherford to Calistoga, this is Joe Wagner's take on a traditional California field blend.  Napa Valley Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Petite Verdot and Syrah ferment and age together for 18 months in French oak.  Big aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice, cherry and black pepper.  Then bold flavors of tobacco, cherry pie, licorice and lots of super-ripe dark fruit with a touch of sweet oak on the finish.  Bold stuff for big food!

Begali Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2012 Product #30731 (In Stock)
Begali Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2012 Begali Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2012

As Wine Advocate said in late 2013, “If you can name but two producers in Valpolicella (I’m betting they are Dal Forno and Quintarelli), it’s now time to add a third: Lorenzo Begali.”  Begali’s Amarone isn’t quite as hefty as Dal Forno and is much cleaner and less rustic than Quintarelli, but we agree that the quality-levels are very similar – even if the prices are about 80% less!

Soaring aromas of dried black cherry, blueberry, and blackberry are framed by subtle notes of oak, tobacco and chocolate.  On the palate the wine is amazingly pure, clean, and fresh – even at 15.5% abv! – with layers and layers of rich fresh fruit, dried berry and raisin, crushed flower, dark chocolate, cured tobacco, and sweet spice.  Plenty of Amarone richness and power, for sure, but with impeccable balance and silkiness of texture and perfectly integrated alcohol.  The juicy, fruit and spice-filled finish sails on over ripe tannins with berry and raisin flavors lingering on and on.  Put some away to enjoy with warming winter meals but don’t hesitate to pop a bottle now to pair with ribs, brisket, or any other rich food off the grill.
