Scarborough 'The Works'

This is the probably the best "Works" wine ever bottled by Scarborough Winery, as it consists of more Cabernet Sauvignon than in previous vintages and in a great year like 2012, even the "Press" wine—which typically is wine that might not be as good that the "Free-run" (wine that comes directly out of fermentation without pressing it). So in good vintages, like 2012, this wine is very difficult to beat, especially for the price. This wine will go fast, so make sure you get some! Only 212 cases produced. $28.00

Bouchaine Pinot Noir, Carneros, Napa Valley

"The allure of Pinot Noir is its unpredictability – you never really know what you're going to get. There is a light mouth feel, high acidity and tart red fruit flavors. It's enigmatic, but not sweet. It's fruit balanced by earth and leather. It is spice and evergreen. There is a lot of space between the characteristic notes that speak of Pinot Noir like it used to be."

$24.99

Domaine de Majas Syrah

"Cotes Catalanes is one of the most important IGPs in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, covering the Pyrenees-Orientales department on the border with Spain. Vineyards cover the eastern foothills of the Pyrenees mountain chain, an area also used for the Cotes du Roussillon, Banyuls and Collioure appellations. The IGP exists to provide a geographic indication for wines that are made outside the existing AOC vinification requirements or permitted styles."

This Syrah offers black fruit, with black pepper notes, spicy hints and liqueur, and red fruit flavors. The nose produces scents of balsamic and liquorice notes. It displays a very pleasant freshness and balanced, and subtlety.

On the palate it has a good mouthfeel, light, medium-bodied, well-defined and with bright acidity. A slight chocolate bitterness which ends up being dominated its fruitiness (blackcurrants), the smoothness of its tannins and its great persistence. A very interesting Syrah. A rustic, yet elegant wine.

Food Pairing: Lamb, Beef, Hard Cheeses. $19.99

Domaine de Majas Rouge

"Cotes Catalanes is one of the most important IGPs in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, covering the Pyrenees-Orientales department on the border with Spain. Vineyards cover the eastern foothills of the Pyrenees mountain chain, an area also used for the Cotes du Roussillon, Banyuls and Collioure appellations. The IGP exists to provide a geographic indication for wines that are made outside the existing AOC vinification requirements or permitted styles."

The Rouge from Domaine Majas is a blend of old vine Carignage and Grenache. It displays a brilliant ruby colour with an explosive nose of blackberries and cherries. On the palate, this wine has intense black fruit concentration, astonishing minerality, and tannins that just melt in your mouth. Delicious and enjoyable

Try it alongside lamb, steak, mac and cheese, mushrooms, and roasted vegetables. $21.00

Regis Bouvier Gevrey Chambertin

"Régis Bouvier in Marsannay achieves a rare hat trick in Burgundy, the mastering of all three colors–red, white and rosé, through reasonable yields and high quality terroirs. Bouvier makes the best Burgundian rosé that we have ever tasted, his whites are delicious, with their own particular character completely unlike other Chardonnays from Burgundy, and his reds are his crowning achievement, managing to be wild and exciting while refined and elegant at the same time.

Profound aromas of spice, pepper, smoke, and small red fruits galore leap out of the glass. Deep, bold, and masculine, this wine will reward those who choose to cellar it for a few years."

$58.00

Domaine Pierre Guillemot Bourgogne Rouge

"The Guillemot family has worked Savigny-lès-Beaune vines for eight generations (!) and produces wines with classic Burgundian finesse and balance, all while leaving us a reminder of Savigny's rustic character. Guillemot is one of the quintessential Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant producers, with wines that epitomize the local terroir and emphasize grace and elegance over power and structure.

Not dark in color, no, it doesn't even try to be dark, but then Pinot Noir from Burgundy is rarely noir. The perfume gets to me every time—it just screams Burgundy— classic in every sense."

Acentor | Calatayud, Spain

The Acentor is made from Spain's Garnacha variety in the Calatayud region. Calatayud lays in the north-eastern corner of the country on the border with France.

"This wine is produced from old vines, aged 50 years and older which are trained en vaso. The vineyards are located between 750 and 1000 meters above sea level and have iron-rich clay soils with many large stones. Aromas of ripe blueberries with a spicy undercurrent and a fresh, medium-bodied character with soft tannins." $13.99

"5 European wines to try, at $15 and under. Spicy berry flavors are typical of good, inexpensive Spanish garnacha, and this wine delivers them, along with smoky earthiness for added interest. Not a particularly complex wine, just a really fun one."
