Huber Hugo Sparkling Rosé Non-Vintage

We're off to Austria, and we won’t sleep until we drink some bubbly. I think this sparkling rosé of Pinot Noir and Zweigelt will do the trick. Not totally dry.

Leeuwin Estate Riesling Art Series '08
By contrast, this Margaret River, Australia Riesling is totally dry. Let this prove that some of the best white on the planet is dry, slatey, mineral Riesling.

M. Plouzeau Les Devants de la Bonneliere Touraine '10
Perhaps the best Touraine Sauvignon we've tasted in recent history, this Plouzeau cuvee is the essence of Loire. Very dry, super fragrant, and popping with acidity.

Santomas Malvasia '08
Santomas has stirred our interest in the wines of Slovenia. The familiar white variety Malvasia has never tasted so distinctive and full-bodied.

Chateau de la Negly La Cote '08
We are excited to have finally acquired the wines of this Coteaux du Languedoc producer. Let's start with the La Cote Rouge, a Rhone blend of epic proportions.

Lamadrid Bonarda '09
We recently wrapped up our first-ever blind taste-off of South American reds, and this nifty Argentine Bonarda had quite a performance. A single-vineyard wine.

Adobe Road Grenache '07
This Mendocino County estate is owned by sports car racer Kevin Buckler. The Grenache is a 500-case production. It's a silky, sleek example of the varietal.
