2017 Produttori del Barbaresco, Barbaresco “Normale” Piedmont $39.99net
Come and get it! “The 2017 Barbaresco shows just how appealing this vintage can be. In 2017, the warm, dry growing season gave the Barbaresco an extra kick of richness that fills out its frame and adds so much immediacy. Sweet red berry fruit, cinnamon, rose petal and mint are open in the glass, but it is the wine’s seductive radiance that wins the day. Pora, Ovello, Montestefano, Muncagota and Rio Sordo are the main vineyards used for the straight Barbaresco. The 2017 is such an inviting and expressive wine. Don’t miss it!” - 94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous

2017 Isole e Olena, Chianti Classico, Tuscany $24.89
The picture to the left is of a spectacular bottle of 1988 Isole e Olena that I enjoyed recently. Chianti Classico is one of the last famous wine regions that can still be said to be chock full of great deals.  The 2017 Isole e Olena Chianti Classico is a case in point.  Very aromatic, the palate is bright and fresh with savory red cherry fruit and Chianti Classico's tell-tale earthy/minerally signature.  Enjoy this wine now and over the next 20+ years with just about anything that didn't once reside in water. “The 2017 Chianti Classico is fabulous. Bright, punchy and so full of character, the 2017 is absolutely delicious. Sweet berry, cedar, tobacco, rose petal and subtle earthy notes all grace the 2017, an exquisite wine that will drink well with minimal cellaring. More than anything, I am so impressed with the wine's energy. Drink through 2037.” - 91 Antonio Galloni, Vinous - Freaking delicious!

2015 Nusserhof, Sudtirol Lagrein, Riserva, Alto Adige, Italy $39.99
Always wanted to like northeastern Italian red wines because your wine geek friends said you should, but you could never quite cozy up to them?  Well, hit 'em with this beauty which you'll love too!  The 2015 Nusserhof Sudtirol Lagrein Riserva is an amazing Italian wine.  It starts off with a complex nose of earth, dried herbs and warm black plums.  The medium-full-bodied palate is equally complex and delicious with a wonderful texture and fantastic balance between the fruit, tannin and acidity.  Enjoy now and over the next ten years with roast or braised pork, beef or lamb.  Organic, limited, and oh so good.

2018 Arterberry Maresh, Chardonnay, Dundee Hill, OR $19.99
This is a sensational deal for simply delicious Chardonnay. Arterberry’s 2018 Dundee Hills is a blend of heritage selection, non-irrigated Chardonnay from three vineyards: Maresh Vineyard, Weber and Dux planted between 1983-2012. Aged in 80% neutral and 20% new oak for 12 months, followed by 6 months in steel gives this wine textural richness and purity without the obvious influence of oak. Bottled without fining and light filtration. “The 2018 Dundee Hills Chardonnay is wonderfully inviting and hedonistic! It has a perfume of spiced apples and quince, hazelnuts and beeswax, with wafts of oral perfume. The palate is broad, creamy and loaded with honeyed fruits, with juicy freshness to help carry the long, powerfully fruited finish.” - 93 Wine Advocate

2016 Savage Grace, Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Willow, Yakima, WA $31.99
This classy Cab will satisfy lovers of WA and CA Cabernet Sauvignon (beautiful fruit and velvety tannins) as well as Bordeaux (terroir) aficionados.  Winemaker Michael Savage has captured both true varietal character and a sense of place with this wine.  For those of us old enough to remember what great Cabernet Sauvignon from the ’80's and ‘90s smelled and tasted like, this is a keen reminder.  Red Willow is one of Washington's oldest and most highly regarded Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards and its pedigree is on full display here.  In eastern WA, overripe fruit too often obscures any sense of terroir but not here.  In this rare case, the taster can clearly sense Red Willlow's terroir.  Very well done.  Buy a case and enjoy now and over the next 15+ years. This is also an amazing value in the world of Cabernet Sauvignon. 13.9% alc. Outstanding!

2019 Patricia Green Cellars, Pinot Noir, Estate Old Vine, Ribbon Ridge, OR $35.99
I’m excited if this early-release 2019 Patricia Green Estate Old Vine is a harbinger of what’s to come from the 2019 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir vintage. 2019 was the kind of “normal” summer that I was used to in Oregon in the ‘80s and ‘90s. It was warm, but not hot, mostly dry, but with periodic rain and it cooled off at night nicely. After the blazing 2018 growing season, a return to the more classic 2019 vintage is welcome affair. Just as the 2019 Kelley Fox Pinot we featured last month, this wine is brimming with energy. Ringing in at a cool 13.2% alcohol, the PGC Estate Old Vine offers a beguiling aromatic profile with notes of hood strawberries, cherries, wild game and a hint of earth. The silky-textured palate is packed with red fruit supported by nice acidity and velvety tannins. Already delicious, this will only improve for five to eight years in the cellar.

2016 Domaine du Collier, Saumur Blanc, Loire Valley Into SALE $49.99 - Reg. $53.99
Geek Alert: Within a short period of time, Antoine Foucault is already making some of the most exciting wines in the Loire Valley. The Domaine du Collier was created in 1999 by Antoine (son of Charly Foucault from the famed Clos Rougeard). Having worked at Clos Rougeard for four years and still at the young age of 26 he took the opportunity to buy four-hectares of vines in the commune of Brézé in the best lieu-dit of 'La Ripaille'. The estate comprises 6 hectares with the vast majority of the estate planted to Chenin Blanc (including some 100 year old vines) and just under a hectare of Cabernet Franc. There is a substance to these wines that is impressive, but more importantly there is clarity to them, a precision that demands attention. These are powerful, mineral-driven wines that do not assault the palate, but seek to impress on grounds of their brilliant composition.  2016 has proven to be an epic vintage in the Loire for both Chenin and Cab Franc as the wines of Dom. du Collier clearly demonstrate. The Saumur Blanc is from low yielding old vines grown on predominantly clay limestone soils and is a very powerful and complex wine even while young.  As with the best Chenin Blanc, the magic happens as the wines age and evolve and this will do so magnificently through 2027+.  I’m stocking up on this Saumur Blanc, and you should too. Insanely delicious. P.S. There are a few bottles left of the 2016 Collier Saumur Blanc La Charpentrie at $79.89.

2018 Chignard, Juliénas Beauvernay, Cru Beaujolais $24.89
This is serious, complex, structured Cru Beaujolais. Intoxicating aromas of cinnamon, baking spices and violets are backed up by scents of  black pepper and strawberries that waft up from the glass and announce that it's time to pay attention.  The succulent palate that unfolds with bright red fruit is complimented by a pronounced gout de terroir derived from old vines planted in 1946. Delish! “Bright purple. Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of fresh red/dark berries, incense and potpourri are complemented by a licorice nuance that builds with air. Shows sharp delineation and floral lift on the palate, offering sappy black raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that deepen and become sweeter on the back half. Finishes long and youthfully tannic, with strong, floral- and blue-fruit-dominated persistence. Drink through 2029” - 92 Vinous

2018 Ch. Beaucastel, Cotes-du-Rhone, Coudoulet de Beaucastel SALE $26.99 - Reg. $31.99
The “Baby Beaucastel” is no ordinary Cotes-du-Rhone. The Coudoulet vineyard is immediately adjacent to the Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape vineyard, but was not included in the appellation created in 1936. On the same limestone plateau with the same “galets” the Coudoulet is a blend of 30% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, 20% Syrah & 20% Cinsault made in the same way as the Beaucastel Chateauneuf. The main difference is that the Beaucastel Chateauneuf is extremely full-bodied, more structured and burdened with more alcohol. The 2018 Coudoulet Cotes-du-Rhone is remarkably fresh and vibrant with a modest (for the region) 14.1% alcohol. “Lovely density and darkness to the colour, density of fruit too on the palate. Very well balanced, with dense, deep, grippy tannins. The Mourvèdre makes itself known this year - intense damson and liquorice on the long finish. A good value pick.” - 93 Decanter & “From a vineyard just across the A7 interstate, on the northern edge of Châteauneuf Du Pape and not far from the estate, the 2018 Côtes Du Rhône Coudoulet De Beaucastel offers a pretty, medium to full-bodied, elegant profile that’s a great introduction into the 2018 vintage. Complex notes of garrigue, peppery spice, and dark fruits all emerge from this nuanced, balanced effort that will drink well right out of the gate.” - 91 Jeb Dunnuck & 91-93 W.A.
