This wine is spectacular, and represents the perfect foil for grilled steak. Rich, full bodied and muscular, Alto Moncayo has riveting intensity and palate staining extract; this Spanish red is inky/purple, full-bodied, and rich. This pedal-to-the-metal offering should age handsomely for a decade.
"Dark violet. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red and dark berries, incense, vanilla and candied flowers, along with a vibrant mineral overtone. Juicy, concentrated and focused on the palate, offering intense black raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors that deepen and spread out steadily on the back half. An impressively long, mineral-laced finish features silky, even tannins and an echo of lavender pastille."- Vinous / Antonio Galloni
Made from vines between 30 and 50 years old, and aged in barrels for 16 months. It is a wine with an attractive collection of balsamic notes, of chocolate and black fruits, very warm on the palate and an extremely pleasant finish.

"Graceful and harmonious, this red shows good depth, balancing juicy cherry and berry flavors with notes of vanilla, mountain herb and mineral. Drink now through 2022."-Wine Spectator
Banshee has changed up the varieties this vintage but the wine continues to delivery. A delightful, dry, fresh and very quaffable rose from 38% Grenache, 26% Barbera, 25% Syrah and 12% Pinot Noir.The wine is a pale rose and peach combination in color and lip smacking as it goes down. It also possesses the depth to pair with everything from the lightest amuse bouche to the main course.
This year our Rosé is 21% Grenache, 58% Zinfandel, 13% Mourvedre, 4% Syrah and 4% Carignane.
The grapes are harvested early, whole cluster pressed, and finished dry. Then the juice is fermented cold using indigenous yeast with no ML. The wine is very pale in color, beautifully aromatic and crisp on the finish, what a fine accompaniment to the optimism of spring!
The Grenache grapes for this wine were picked with the intention to make a Rosé and its expression showcases this. The true Grenache fruit comes through, with subdued hints of strawberries and cream, cranberries, fresh summer watermelon rind and orange peel. The delicate notes of rose petals and mineral are balanced by juicy berry, bright vivid acid and just a hint of tannin to create a wine that is perfect for summer days on the patio. This Rosé is made from 100% Grenache, harvest from Peter Mathis’s Vineyard in Sonoma Valley (He also makes an outstanding Rosé). The Mathis Vineyard is 7.5 acres of glorious south facing slopes with low vigor volcanic soils.

Château de Beaucastel has long been regarded as one of the greatest wines in France. It is notorious for its elegance, balance and ageing potential. Beaucastel has an exceptional terroir at the Northern limit of Châteauneuf du Pape, exposed to the Mistral wind. All thirteen varieties of the appellation have been organically grown since the sixties.
With a beautiful intense carmine-red color, this 2015 Beaucastel has a lively attack and very quickly reveals aromas of beautiful red fruit. The finish has delicate notes of licorice with powerful but not aggressive tannins. A great vintage of Beaucastel red.

With cellars dating from the 16th century near the village of Castellet, Chateau Vannieres is one of the great domaines in Provence. It consists of 47 hectares, 33 of which are planted to vines, with clay-limestone soil and an average age of 35 years. Agriculture is sustainable.
Eric Boisseaux and his son (the family hails originally from Burgundy) craft exceptionally expressive wines from the traditional varietals of the area: Mourvedre, Grenache and Cinsault. All the grapes are harvested by hand and destemmed. Each varietal and each parcel are fermented separately so that the estate can retain maximum flexibility in blending the different elements of each cuvee.
Made primarily from Mourvedre, the substantial Bandol Rouge is fermented in epoxy-lined cement tanks and aged in foudre and barriques for 20-24 months when they are bottled.
These are long-lived wines of class and distinction.
Contra Costa County provides the Lion’s Share of the grapes for this blend. The sunny and warm climate coupled with deep sandy soil and limited rainfall create grapes of great flavor intensity and dark color.
The North Coast Merlot provides a bright cherry and herbal character and excellent tannin.
Intense red with purple tones. It has a very fresh aroma, full of flowers and fruits sensations that are confirmed in the palate. It is cheerful and lively, and expresses citrus flavors and memories of summer stone fruits, such as peach and apricot. In the end it appears so vibrant and enjoyable that makes us want to drink more.
This highly concentrated wine, made from vines planted on the best slopes and terraces of the famous Rasteau soils, has an appealingly strong personality.
Besides aromas of very ripe fruit, it is generally laced with notes of spice and garrigue scrubland scents specific to this terroir.
Appealing tannic structure, a rounded body, rich and powerful…this is the Beaurenard's typically strong character.
On this fresh terroir with chalky shards of the Arboras plateau, split by a deep fault, was born this complex wine, open on aromas of ripe red fruits, plum, mocha, licorice and spices.Concentrated, generous and dense in the mouth, built on melting tannins, it is balanced by a fine freshness that animates an elegant finish.
Domaine Juliette Avril Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre. However, that blend can vary. The terroir is galets, sand and clay soils. The vines are planted in various parts of the appellation as you can see, as these grapes are planted in the le Bas Serres, Coste Froide, Coteau de l’Ange, Farguerol and les Galimardes lieux-dits.
On average the vines are 50 years of age. The grapes are destemmed. Vinification takes place in stainless steel vats. Malolactic fermentation takes place in used oak tanks. The wine is aged in used tanks foudres for less than 12 months before bottling. The production is on average close to 850 cases per year.
This cuvée reflects a specific terroir and grape variety, as well as a hundred years of ups and downs - unstinting efforts, though crises, wars, etc... as well as years of joy and plenty. The century-old Grenache vines are deeply rooted in this mythical plot like no other, with sandy and red Comtat sandstone soil. Not only rare and unique, the resulting wine is indescribably... pure, as well as ethereal, delicate, elegant, fresh, natural, floral, silky, unctuous and absolute. "Pure features a wonderful bouquet and texture, but so much more.
