2010 Hermanos Peciña, Rioja Gran Reserva, Finca Iscorta, Spain SALE $35.89 (Reg. $44.89)
Of Rioja's three great traditional wineries, Hermanos Peciña was only founded in 1992 by long-time La Rioja Alta's vineyard manager Pedro Peciña. Along with 2001, 2010 is the greatest vintage in Rioja since the legendary 1964 vintage. In outstanding vintages, Pedro bottles a single vineyard wine from his top old vine vineyard, Finca Iscorta, as a Gran Reserva. With only a subtle backdrop of oak, the nose is classic old-school Rioja. The palate is complex and seamless with that rare combination of richness and finesse, not to mention beautiful fruit and a strong mineral core with excellent balance. Only in Rioja will one find wine of such complexity, long cellar potential, depth and elegance for anywhere near this price. Decant and enjoy now, or better yet, watch this magnificent wine improve and evolve through 2040. Very Limited. "(raised in neutral American oak barrels for four years) Vivid ruby-red. A highly perfumed, expansive bouquet displays an array of ripe red fruits, exotic spices and candied flowers, along with subtle coconut and pipe tobacco accents. Juicy, seamless and appealingly sweet, offering intense, smoke-tinged raspberry preserve, cherry-vanilla and spicecake flavors and mocha. Licorice nuances build as the wine opens up. Finishes supple, sweet and very long, with slow-building tannins that fold smoothly into the clinging fruit. Drink through 2030" - 94 Josh Raynolds, Vinous ~ Very limited!

2017 Clos Cibonne, Cotes de Provence, Tibouren Rosé Tradition, France $26.89
Geek Alert:  This is singular rosé.  The Clos Cibonne estate is located some 800 meters from the Mediterranean Sea in beautiful sunny Provence.  There are a couple of key elements that set this rosé apart from all others.  First, it's the only known rosé made from the antique varietal Tibouren, indigenous to the area.  Second, it is raised in giant 100+ year old foudres under a "fleurette" (a thin layer of yeast, or "sous voile" in the Jura).  The result is like nothing else.   While this is only the eighth vintage I've tried, the word is that it ages well.  Indeed, the last bottle I enjoyed upon opening was just as exciting on the second day.  The Clos Cibone is very complex on both the palate and the nose, food-friendly, refreshing and above all, delicious.  Although different from either, if you enjoy the Savagnin based wines of the Jura or the great rosado from Lopez de Heredia, then you need to try this wine!

2013 Sky, Zinfandel, Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley, CA $34.89
Yep, I’m pimping a CA Zinfandel. For those of you familiar with Sky Zin, you understand why: it’s unlike 99% of other Zinfandels made in the modern era (last 25 years). Located high up on Napa’s Mt. Veeder, Sky’s vineyard has been the source of great zin for decades. Back in the 1980s and ‘90s, there were a good number of wineries in Sonoma and Napa making well-balanced, multi-demential Zinfandel that actually aged well. Those were the days before celebrity winemakers started churning out over-ripe zins with no acidity and 15%-17% alcohol that tasted like alcoholic blackberry syrup from the local IHOP. The 2013 Sky Zinfandel is quite the opposite with delicious restrained brambly fruit, excellent balance modest alcohol (13.4.%) and the structure to age. While this Zin will continue to develop in the cellar, it’s already lip-smackin’ good and a perfect partner for just about any meaty delight you might throw on your BBQ.

2018 Gulfi, Terre Siciliane, Rossojbleo, Sicily $18.89
Vignalta’s Rosso Riserva is a tasty blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc from a hillside vineyard in the Veneto’s Colli Euganei region. Aromatically, the earthy Merlot shines through, but with the sense that this is definitely Italian. The silky palate offers plumy fruit, earth tones and enough acidity to keep this red fresh and food-friendly. At six years old, this wine is in its prime drinking window now, but will continue to drink well for another three to five years.

2016 Ch. Kefraya, Les Breteches Red, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon $14.99
This red blend, primarily Syrah and Cinsault, was a great surprise. The Syrah highlights the intriguing aromatic profile while the Cinsault takes center stage on the spicy palate. Medium-bodied, the Les Breteches offers nice fruit, and a little earth and enough structure to enjoy now and over the next few years with lamb, burgers, stews and vegetarian casseroles. There is a lot going on here for a wine selling for under $15.00.
