  • 2016 Chateau Malbat Bordeaux, France $13
    As with most junior clarets, Merlot predominates (95%) in this Château Malbat. For this, there are good reasons. Compared to Cabernet, Merlot tends to produce wines with more obvious fruit, and less aggressive tannins- both features which lend themselves to an earlier-drinking style of red wine. Malbat has been in the same family since 1870, and the current incumbent, of the sixth generation, is Daniel Rochet. Simple winemaking ensures great purity of fruit flavor. No rogue oak chips or barrels are involved. With spice, ripe tannins and black currants, this is a dense wine with a good future. There is a firm background to this wine to set against the fruitiness. Drink from 2018- 2025
  • 2015 MontGras Merlot, Chile $12
    Dark ruby. Ripe cherry, dark berries and a hint of succulent herbs on the spice-accented nose. Plush and open-knit, offering gently sweet cassis and cherry flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate that gains strength as the wine opens up. Shows good energy and spicy cut on the finish, which is given shape by dusty, sneaky tannins. 88 Points Vinous
  • 2016 Domaine Dupeuble Beaujolais, France $15
    Light bright red. Lively and focused on the nose and palate, displaying vibrant red berry and mineral qualities, Taut, light-bodied and racy in style; a touch of orange zest adds a refreshingly bitter edge to the finish. This insanely easy-to -drink and weightless Beaujolais ought to be bottled exclusively in magnums for proper single-portion servings. 89 Points Vinous
  • 2016 Castaño Monastrell, Spain $9
    I hadn't encountered their entry-level, young and unoaked Monastrell for a while, but I tasted the 2016 Monastrell, which fermented in stainless steel and was kept in concrete vats for four to six months. They used some 25% to 30% full clusters in the vinification, and I've never smelled anything like this from Castaño. This is floral and fresh, elegant and balanced, with moderate extraction, ripe tannins and a very pleasant mouthfeel with clean, focused flavors. This is almost too serious for the price. Wow! and the wine was amazing. 90 Points Robert Parker
  • 2016 Zach Brown Cabernet Sauvignon, CA. $15
    When Zac said he wanted to craft big, bold wine, I immediately knew we were going to go to Northern California Coastal vineyards. The riches of these vineyards are what give Z. Alexander Brown Cabernet Sauvignon its depth and character. Selecting the best fruit from top vineyard sites in the region enables us to craft a powerful, full-bodied wine with supple tannins and a long, silky finish."—John Killebrew, Winemaker
  • 2016 OZ Zinfandel old vine, Lodi, CA. $12
    Like an old pair of familiar jeans, this one is one of my favorite, daily reliable go-to wines. Dark fruit on a full bodied structure that keeps a smoother texture from start to finish. Notes of baking spices and rich coffee on a dark chocolate layer enclose subtle oak and silky tannins. It's simple and direct... sometimes that's exactly what the moment calls for
