We have tons of new wines coming in every day- It’s wine season! So stay tuned for updates in the coming days! Starting now!
NEW FROM SPAIN
Ulibarri Atzaik Bizkaiko Txakolina: Shepards, cheesemakers, winemakers, and brothers Iker and Asier make this light and wild Basque white from native varietal Hondarrabi Zuri. Unfined, unfiltered, and fermented in oak barrels, with minimal added sulfur, there is none of the fizz you might expect from Txakolina, but plenty of character and funk. We even detect a slight cheesiness on the finish… super cool. $21
El Quiñón Estate Sembro Tempranillo, Ribeira del Duero 2012: Thick-skinned Tempranillo makes up some of the most famous wines from Spain, and some of the most popular bottles on our shelves! This new addition, from grapes hailing from south facing slopes of chalk and stone soil, is big, and rich, and modern. It owes it’s deep black fruit, full body, and structure to the varietal and terroir and super smooth, baking-spice laden finish to time spent in toasty French oak barrels. Warm and comfortable. $19
Marqués de Tomares Don Roman Rioja 2013: A super pleasingly well-balanced sipper from venerable producer Marqués de Tomares, whos wines have always been popular on our shelves! 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano, lively and fresh with lingering notes of cherry, raspberry, and vanilla. $15
Gran Sarao Kosher Cava Brut: A dry, easy going, crowd pleasing and festive option for the high holidays! The perfect thing to bring to a dinner or serve to your guests at the beginning of the meal you’re serving! Crisp and lean with persistent bubbles. $12
Gramona Imperial Cava Gran Reserva 2007: An incredibly complex Cava, blended from Xarel-lo, Macabeo, and Chardonnay. The aging and second fermentation occurs in the bottle over the course of 36 to 48 months, bringing out a toasty richness you just might confuse with pricier Champagne bottlings… Elegant and exultant!
Bodegas Urium Superior Fino Sherry: Hailing from a small winery in the center of Jerez’s famed Barrio de Santiago, known for it’s ideal conditions for sherry-aging! Saline and bready, with a rich almond-y quality. Super complex and interesting, a conversation starter that is dynamite with fish and fried foods. $15
