2008 ACCORDINI AMARONE "LE BESSOLE" The new vintage of Accordini Amarone is in, and it is a richer style than last years! Come in to try it Friday &/or Saturday. The 2007 received 92 from Wine Enthusiast, and although this vintage is not yet rated, the people on cellartracker are loving it, giving the wine a 93. The 2007 was more delicate with cedar spice on the finish. The 2008 is filled with dark plum and dried berry notes. You can't find a better Amarone deal than this!

2014 Eberle Chardonnay- Paso Robles
NV Eberle Full Boar Red- Zinfandel, Cabernet, Sangiovese, & Tempranillo
2013 Eberle Zinfandel- Paso Robles
2013 Eberle Vineyard Selection Cabernet- Paso Robles
2014 Quinta do Gomariz Loureiro- Vinho Verde DO, Portugal. A very interesting white with deep citrus fruit. Over the past 5 vintages, this Loureiro has won 33 wine awards from different competitions. It is a great white to pair with fatty fish, white meats, Italian and Asian cuisine.
2014 Feudi di San Gregorio Ros'aura- Campania, Italy. Feudi di San Gregorio has won countless acclaim for its work with Campania’s ancient varietals. Some of the wines they are known for include their Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo, and Aglianico. The Ros’aura is 100% Aglianico, and is a fuller-style rosé. Expressing notes of sour cherry, strawberry, and a bit of pepper spice, it is a great wine to enjoy with a country pate and cornichons.
2014 DeSante L'Atelier White Blend- Napa Valley, CA. An all-time favorite of ours, this blend of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Sauvignon Vert is remeniscent of a white Bordeaux with just that extra hint of texture that Napa offers. Although best known for his red wines, David DeSante makes some exceptional white wines, and this is his most affordable offering.
2014 Castello della Sala Bramìto del Cervo Chardonnay- Umbria IGT, Italy. The Umbrian estate & medieval Castle of Sala was purchased by the Antinori family in 1940. The cool climate near Orvieto is great for growing white wines. This creamy chardonnay is a blend of wine done in stainless steel, as well as some wine that is aged in oak and goes through full malo-lactic fermentation. The wine has aromas and flavors of pineapple and of citrus fruit, hazelnut butter, and vanilla.
2014 Division Winery Les Petits Fers Gamay Noir- Umpqua & Eola-Amity Hills Valley, OR. Tasted blind, this wine would confuse most connoisseurs. The warm, dry 2014 season along with an extended time on the grape skins (which concentrates the flavors) gives this wine a much fuller-flavor than your typical gamay. It is like a spicy pinot noir, with flavors of raspberries, black pepper, a hint of licorice, and rose petals on the finish.
2010 Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon-Colchagua Valley, Chile. A lighter-style cabernet with lots of earthiness. Makes for a good wine to have with grilled meats and peppers.
2008 Accordini Amarone 'Le Bessole'- Valpolicalla, Italy. See Description above.
