Ca' Erto Ripasso della Valpolicella 2016
Save $5.00 (20%)
Deeply colored, rich, densely jammy wines that are lip-smacking good. The term "Ripasso" refers to this luscious, richly-textured style of wine, which is made by taking the freshly fermented Valpolicella wine, adding Amarone pomace to it (seeds, skins, and grape pulp), and then re-fermenting it altogether. The Valpolicella is left in contact with the Amarone pomace for a couple of weeks, which imparts additional color and flavor, tannin and structure, leading to the delicious, lush wine that is certainly a welcome addition to just about any dessert course.

Bruno Colin Bourgogne Blanc 2015Pure, clear hue with delicate green glimmers. Very fresh and direct on the nose with attractive aromas of white fruits. The palate is round with a pleasant minerality and a lively finish. A highly expressive, seductive and complete wine for its appellation.
Domaine Rives Blanques Brut Blanquette de Limoux 2016This is the first sparkling wine in the world, invented and enjoyed by the Benedictine monks in Limoux around 1500, more than a century before Champagne's Dom Pérignon started "drinking the stars". Our Blanquette is as crisp and clean as the mountains on our horizon. It is made from the old historic grape variety of the region, Mauzac, and spends at least one year on the lees after its second fermentation in the bottle.
La Cartuja Priorat 2016Brilliant ruby. Ripe dark berries, licorice, smoky minerals and a hint of succulent flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy, round and open-knit; a peppery note adds lift and cut to warm blackberry, bitter cherry and licorice pastille flavors. The long, mineral-accented finish shows very good focus and closes on a youthfully tannic note, leaving cherry pit and floral notes behind.
