2023 Ch. Peyrassol, Rosé, Cuvée des Commandeurs, Cotes de Provence, France $24.89 bottle / $131.94($21.99) six-pack
Finally, the first great 2023 Provençal Rosé is here! This is the essence of classical, refreshing, ultra food-friendly Provençal rosé. A beautiful light pink with orange tints, the Peyrassol’s nose has alluring aromas of raspberry, orange peel, melon, and minerals. The palate offers real depth and complexity with bright citrus notes balancing the fresh fruit and briny minerals framed by racy acidity on the silky palate. Um...more, please! Stock up for the long hot summer.

2021 Reis, Derthona Timorasso, Colli Tortonesi $29.99 bottle / $161.94($26.99) six-pack
Once forgotten, Timorasso is now one of Piedmont’s best kept secrets and clearly its most interesting and delicious white grape variety. Widely cultivated until the second world war, Timorasso almost became extinct and by 1980, there was less than an acre left. Today, it is just beginning its renaissance and there are now almost six hundred acres planted as Timorasso’s unique qualities are being rediscovered by Piedmontese winemakers and sommeliers and wine lovers in Europe, Asia and North America. Timorasso is a variety with a very strong personality showing the textural richness, oiliness and volume of Chenin Blanc (especially Savennieres) and the longevity of a great White Burgundy - yet tasting completely “Italian.” The 2021 (great vintage all over Piedmont) Reis Timorasso shows off a deep yellow robe. The nose just smells “mineral” with supporting aromas of dried mediterranean herbs and jasmine flowers. On the palate, the wine has tremendous texture and almost a hint of tannin with a broad palate presence. Stone fruits, especially apricot complement the kaleidoscopic mineral core. Enjoy now and over the next eight years with all manner of pork dishes, duck, turkey and richer seafood like scallops, lobster and salmon. Yeah.

2014 Westrey, Pinot Noir, Abbey Ridge, Dundee Hills, Willamette Valley, OR $39.89 bottle / $221.94($36.99) six-pack
Yes, 2014. Yes, Abbey Ridge Pinot Noir. Now at ten years old, from the excellent 2014 vintage, from one of the new world’s greatest Pinot Noir vineyards, at an absurdly low price…we are happy to offer you this library release from Westrey. Planted high in the Red Hills of Dundee in 1977 by Bill and Julia Wayne, Abbey Ridge is one of Oregon’s oldest vineyards and one of the very best. It’s the highest elevation vineyard Westrey uses so the fruit has ample time at this cool site to develop true varietal character. Abbey Ridge fruit is consistently elegant and complex, with great aging potential. On the nose there is the signature of Abbey Ridge Vineyard: high tone crushed-raspberry, bright red current fruit with violet, and an undercurrent of earth. On the palate the wine continues to show a pleasing secondary fruit expression. Raspberries and sweet-exotic spice are complemented by a subtle hint Dundee Hills earth. Excellent balance and complexity throughout. A wine truly distinguished by it’s terroir. And…it’s showing great now! Limited.

2015 Westrey, Chardonnay, Dundee Hills Reserve $31.89 bottle / $179.94($29.99) six-pack
Oracle vineyard is just down the road from the famous Abbey Ridge vineyard and shares much of the same attributes. This Chardonnay is from 39-year-old Draper clone own-rooted pre-phylloxera vines. Yes, old vine Draper clone, a clone with much more personality than the various early-ripening Dijon clones. Barrel fermented in primarily neutral oak barrels, this wine is showing really well and at prefect maturity now. With notes of hazelnuts, candied ginger and Asian pear this is a chardonnay in a very Meursault style and feel. Enjoy this beautifully mature Chardonnay now and over the next few years. Library release. Very limited.

2021 Cadence, Coda - Cara Mia Vineyard, Red Mt. Washington $29.89 bottle / $161.94($26.99) six-pack
If I had to pick one Washington winery that focuses on Bordeaux varieties and makes the most interesting, complex and well-balanced wines, it would be Cadence. Cadence preforms at the highest level in Washington, while maintaining mid-level pricing. This is really excellent Washington state red that competes very favorably against WA and CA Bordeaux blends that cost 3X and 4X. Enjoy now and over the next 10+ years. “The 2021 Coda Cara Mia Vineyard, a blend of 46% Cabernet Franc, 42% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, is impossible to ignore, with a stunning blend of crushed raspberries accentuated by dusty rose, a spritz of orange zest and sweet smoke. It’s silky smooth, with racy acidity and crisp red fruits that cascade throughout, giving way to sweet spice and a caking of crunchy minerality. This finishes long and staining, with a blackberry and plum concentration that lingers along with notes of tobacco. A coating of sweet tannins and hints of blood orange slowly fade. This is fun yet classic.” - 93 Vinous

2020 Croison, Cabernet Sauvignon, St. Helena Napa Valley $123.99 bottle / $689.94($114.99) six-pack
This isn't some new producer storming the wine world with the next latest and greatest thing. No, this wine comes from Cathy Corrison who has achieved legendary status, crafting wines in the manner that helped make Napa famous in the first place. Tasting this wine allows you to see why Cabernet Sauvignon commands the head of the nobility table. It doesn't hurt that the vines are over a half century old, or that 2020 was a near perfect vintage. Impeccably balanced yet wildly complex with tart cherry, blueberry, red and black currants, raspberry, plum and boysenberry fruit, fleshed out with notes of baking spices and peppermint. The tannins are characteristically polite yet grippy. No doubt deserving of a place in your cellar for when you need to prove that the Napa Valley can be worth the hype. 96 points Decanter - LIMITED - Lance’s Pick

2022 Vincent Paris, Granit Blanc, Northern Rhone VdP de l’Ardèche $29.99 bottle / $161.94($26.99) six-pack
This is basically Cornas Blanc, but since Cornas, by law, can only be made from Syrah, it is only labeled as a Vin de Pays. A blend of Viognier and Roussanne, the nose shows beguiling elements of both grape varieties. The dry, medium-bodied palate offers great mineral action along with savory notes, especially sage. Notes of quince and peach play beautifully with the mineral and savory nature of this delicious wine. Considering what this wine is, who made it and where its grown, this is a pretty sweet deal.

2022 Vincent Paris, Cornas, Granit 60 Vieilles Vignes, Northern Rhone, France $59.99
“The broad-shouldered 2022 Cornas Granit 60 offers pronounced intensity of spice-box, cured meat, blackberry jam, cedarwood and wet tea bag alongside crushed violets and iodine subtleties. Full-bodied, concentrated and framed by a massive tannic core, the 2022 concludes with persistence on the expansive finish. Very promising.” - 93-95 Vinous & “A well-composed, velvety and vivid Cornas with brightness and purity. Aromas of dark cherries, currants, wild herbs, graphite and black pepper. Medium-bodied withfine, firm tannins. Good concentration with precise fruit and a constant mineraledge. The peppercorn and stone character brings freshness and verve to theenergetic mid-palate. It's vibrant and vertical with a lot of tension in the long, textured and spicy finish.” - 97 James Suckling

2018 Feudo Montoni, Nero d’Avola, Vrucara, Sicily $58.89 bottle / $317.94($52.99) six-pack
Fourteen years into running Sec Wines, I never imagined that I would be promoting a $60 Nero d’Avola.  But, hey, you gotta be open to new things and realizing you don’t know everything, which I’m forced to acknowledge pretty much every day.  Anyway, this is exciting red wine from pre-phylloxera vines in the Vrucara vineyard containing a unique genetic code of Nero d’Avola, which has been guarded for centuries at Montoni. Bright ruby red, the Vrucara has an intense nose with earthy aromas and notes of dark plums, roses, eucalyptus and balsamic. The incredibly well-balanced (it’s really true!) palate has flavors that reprise the aromatic themes and is kept fresh with good acidity and soft tannins wrapped in a velvety texture. This Vinous review nailed it: “The 2018 Nero d'Avola Vrucara Prephylloxera is hauntingly dark and floral, dusting exotic spice and crushed violets accentuating red plums and balsam herbs. This is a surprisingly lifted and pure interpretation of Vrucara, with silky textures and mineral-tinged wild berry fruits lifted by brisk acidity. A black licorice twang resonates toward the close. Cocoa and balsamic spice hints linger as the 2018 finishes with crunchy tannins…it will provide fantastic drinking over the next five to ten years. Drink through 2032.” - 93 Vinous
