2015 L'ECOLE NO. 41
FRENCHTOWN RED
$19.99 BTL./$239.88 CASE

A few years back, L'Ecole's Red blend was known as Recess Red. Recently, L'Ecole No. 41 decided that this wine should be taken much more seriously given the high quality. A label upgrade and name change, Frenchtown, combined with swank material makes this a killer deal from this Walla Walla based legend.

Bordeaux grapes combined with Rhone grapes (25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Syrah, 4% Malbec, 45% Merlot, 1% Mourvedre, 5% Grenache and 1% Cabernet Franc), this red has serious suck-it-down factor. Flamboyant, exuberant aromas of cassis, blueberry, dusty earth and tobacco carry over to a texture that is positively velvety and smoothly covers the entire palate with ambiance and spirit. Drinkable now and over the next 3-4 years, this is a lovely red from one of the longtime stalwarts that stands above so many other under 20 dollar Washington blends.

2016 BEAURENARD ROSE 'BIOTIFUL FOX'
$11.99 BTL./$143.88 CASE

From famed Chateauneuf-du-Pape producer Domaine de Beaurenard comes a new, value-oriented dry pink wine from the Vaucluse region of Provence. Biotiful Fox is a play on words as Beaurenard means beautiful fox and les freres Coulon farm using Biodynamic principles.

Made with mostly Grenache along with Syrah and Mourvedre, Bryan is making his annual visit to Beaurenard today and probably throwing back several bottles of this at lunch with Victor, Daniel and Fred Coulon. You should be doing the same, too. Alluring all of the senses and aromatically gorgeous with fragrant hawthorn, subtle strawberry, fine herbs and smoke, this playful and subtle Provencal pink wine shows debonair characteristics of underlying mineral and red fruit. Then POW!, it plugs in the jolting electrodes on the finish with its brisk and gushing qualities adding to a superb, lengthy finish. Try a fun, slightly spicy marinade on ahi tuna or chicken, toss it on the grill and uncork many bottles, you will not be sorry!

Finishes with serious depth and the broad, polished tannins to support aging. – 91 POINTS, ANTONIO GALLONI, VINOUS'

2014 GOUGES NUITS-ST-GEORGES
'CLOS DES PORRETS ST-GEORGES'
$89.99 - LIMITED!

If you love Burgundy and more importantly, love to cellar them, then these are excellent choices. Domaine Henri Gouges is a benchmark of the appellation and in the 1930s; Monsieur Gouges was at the forefront in the villages evolution. Today’s generation put forth some of the most detailed and ageworthy selections that are always at the top of the village’s hierarchy. We are quite lucky to have some of these available and can’t be more excited to be able to offer them.

The Premier Cru of Clos des Porrets St-Georges sits just beneath the famed, apex Cru vineyard of Les Perrieres and was once a rock quarry. Always a prince in the Gouges range, this wine always takes on a stern minerally quality and takes some cellar time to truly become individual and at peace with itself. Devestatingly handsome. Dark cherry, plum, multi-layered white pepper and mineral scents. More and more arrive including limestone and strawberry. Dense and gripping but with a sultry core of vinous fruit. Gains backbone and focuses in on the youthfully bound finish. 2014 is a sneaky and underrated vintage for red Burgundy and this for its price is so fine. Hold it until 2021 and drink through 2030+.
