Novellum (by Domaine Lafage) Chardonnay 2016 (France)

$14.99/bottle or $12.99/bottle on 6+

“Wine Advocate Notes:” 92 Points

“A sensational wine that will compete with wines five times the price, the 2016 Novellum Chardonnay is the real deal and actually reminded me of a Chardonnay from Mark Aubert in California’s Sonoma County. White peach, crushed rocks, spice and brioche notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied Chardonnay that has depth, layered texture and length. Buy it.”

J17_2015NM_c.140257Schloss Gobelsburg Rielsing 2016 (Austria)

$19.99/bottle or Standard WC Discounts

“Wine Spectator Notes:” 91 Points

“Peach and grapefruit flavors hold court in this focused white, picking up accents of floral, apple and mineral. Intense and long, with a vibrant aftertaste echoing the complex flavors. Silky texture. Drink now through 2025.”

$65.00/bottle or $49.95/bottle on 6+

Winery Tasting Notes: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 26% Merlot 7% Cabernet Franc 5% Petit Verdot 2% Malbec

“The nose is full of plum and blackberry, with an undertone of dry figs and a hint of clay. The mouth-feel is fleshy and consistent, with black currant and blackberry, as well as hints of rosemary, ripe nectarine and flowers. The finish is long, with dark chocolate, cherry and slate notes.”




Vin2Vindicated Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 (Napa Valley, CA)

$24.95/bottle or $19.95/bottle on 6+

Winery Tasting Notes:
“Great varietal presence greets you with aromas of cassis and briary berry that is perfectly framed by lacy French oak vanilla with a touch of dustiness. In the mouth, the wine shows firmness and balance with bold berry fruit and finely matched acidity, leading to a long finish. This wine will age beautifully for the next several years, but why wait?”
