Broadside Margarita Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Save $9.00 (36%)
Broadside combines the talents of winemakers Chris Brockway of Broc Cellars and Brian Terrizzi of Giornata to produce artisanal, balanced wine from interesting vineyards in small quantities that are priced for people to drink. Their winemaking favors a natural approach in that all wines are minimally handled to best express the grape, site and vintage. The commitment is to wines of balance and finesse that make sense on the dinner table. They harvest at lower sugars, employ native fermentation and use little to no new oak.
Ulacia Txakolina Rose 2016Wine does not have to be complicated. Nowhere is this better demonstrated than in Julian and Maia Ulacia's simple but functional winery above the small fishing port of Getaria, a few kilometres along the coast from San Sebastian. A pneumatic press, two rows of stainless steel tanks and a bottling line. And from the tanks flows pale-coloured, refreshingly dry white wine with a hint of spritz and a vibrant citric bite. Unique, original…and delicious with the local tuna and anchovies. But where Ulacia has the edge over neighbouring producers is the quality, concentration and ripeness achieved in the vineyard, and our blind tastings consistently show Ulacia to be the most intense and most complete of Txacoli wines.
The Prisoner Wine Company Thorn Merlot 2014Our winemaking team works with a family of growers to source a diverse variety of grapes from premier vineyards throughout California. The resulting wines are interesting blends of distinct quality and character. Earthy aromas open up into cocoa, blackberry, cedar, and anise. The entry is smooth with flavors of cherry, chocolate, vanilla, and a mild toastiness. The finish is long with balanced acidity.
