PEDREGAR Ull De Perdiu Classic Penedes Garnatxa Negra Macabeo 2016

Second Thanksgiving bottle! Aperitif as we wait for the roasting duck. Dry and crispy sparkling Spanish rosé. The rain cleared out and it’s sunny and 60 degrees here in Brooklyn. Very nice. — 2 days ago

Terroir Sense Fronteres

Brisat de Montsant Grenache Blanc Macabeo 2018

Comes from the region around Priorat. Really interesting and weird. Bitter, mineral, dry and funky, yet still floral. I like it, but only recommended for the adventurous white wine drinkers. My first bottle from Zwann’s Wine Club @ Olmstead, Brooklyn. Medium bodied at 12% abv. — 2 months ago

Château Roque Le Mayne

Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

“In the glass, the wine has a glistening, dark royal purple color, almost black in the center, with flashes of magenta just at the edge. The classic Right Bank nose unfurls gradually with aromas of sun-warmed black raspberries, griotte cherries, and sweet white tobacco moving in and out of the foreground, sometimes alternating with Dutch cocoa, eucalyptus, and vanilla as the wine evolves in the glass.

On entry, the wine is luscious and succulent, building to a rich, juicy mid-palate, with a cornucopia of black and red fruit flavors that echo the nose, all lightly seasoned with toasted coconut, baker’s chocolate, and red berry acidity, and the long, elegant finish is punctuated with sinuous, fine-grained, dusty tannins. Drink now – 2027” — Moore Brothers, Brooklyn

Brut Champagne Cuvée de Chardonnay 2008

Love this! Great rec from the crew at Brooklyn Wine Exchange. Buttery toast, bright and vibrant citrus fruit and a dry, mineral finish. — 8 days ago

Balestri Valda

Vigneto Sengialta Soave Classico Garganega Trebbiano 2017

This Soave Classico Vigneto Sengialta Balestri Valda 2017 comes from a single hillside parcel of black basaltic soil planted to Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave. The grapes are hand-harvested, fermented separately, and matured in neutral 2000-liter botti for twelve months. In the glass, the wine has a saturated, deep yellow-gold color, with flashes of green-gold just at the edge. Aromas of sun-warmed yellow peaches, crystallized honey, marzipan, and acacia blossoms emerge at first, then alternate with fleeting suggestions of beeswax, grated nutmeg, and sage, as the nose evolves in the glass. On the palate, the wine honeyed and opulent, with a round, juicy core of sweet stone fruit and honey that echoes the nose, along with plenty of dry extract, deep saline minerality, and ripe tartaric acidity. The layered sweet core of honeyed melon and almond paste is seasoned with delicate bitterness, and the long elegant finish is punctuated with fine mineral grip. Drink now – 2030 (yes, the wine is irresistible today, but according to Laura Rizzotto, a bottle that hid unnoticed for fifteen or more years in a good cellar would be a treasure). — Moore Brothers, Brooklyn — a month ago

Salina Bianco Secco Malvasia 2019

A repeat purchase — this wine is an exceptional value, offering a ton of complexity for under $20. I had to research a bit to find that Malvasia is the grape, and Salina is the tiny Italian Island off Sicily it comes from. This wine tastes like salty ocean and makes you imagine being there. A favorite. (Purchased and repurchased many times at Amaro Spirits & Wine in Park Slope, Brooklyn.) — 17 days ago


Faro Nerello Blend 2016
