DOMAINE DES CORBILLIERES, TOURAINE, ROSE Was $16.98 Now $12.98
“Based in the Sologne hamlet of Oisly, Veronique and Dominique Barbou farm 26 acres of vines without any chemical inputs, producing this rose from 30-40-year-old vines: Pinot noir gives its stature, while pinot d’aunis lends green-peppercorn spice. It’s clean, crisp and savory, with strawberry notes adding enough richness to match pork rillettes.”

CARPINETO, DOGAJOLO, TOSCANO ROSSO Was $14.98 Now $11.98
A young wine that boasts fruity aromas with hints of cherry interlaced with coffee, vanilla, and spice. Each varietal is vinified separately in stainless steel in this Sangiovese-based baby Super Tuscan. The blend is briefly aged in oak rendering a medium-bodied red that is soft on the palate with a balanced acidity.
OLIVARES, ALTOS DE LA HOYA, JUMILLA Was $10.98 Now $8.98
Intense and powerful red made from Monastrell and a small portion of Garnacha. Blackberry, candied cassis, and plum with a minty finish. Pair this wine with coq au vin and/or grilled pork.
HOPE ESTATE, “THE RIPPER” SHIRAZ, WESTERN AUSTRALIA Was $19.98 Now $14.98
“This deep garnet-purple colored 100% Shiraz is intensely scented of creme de cassis, blueberry preserves and black cherry compote with an undercurrent of baking spices, vanilla, aniseed and dark chocolate plus a whiff of eucalyptus. Full-bodied, rich and voluptuously fruited in the mouth, it gives tons of black fruit and spice flavors that are framed by a medium level of velvety tannins and bright acidity. It finishes with good persistence.”
