Always delicious and at a nice price, here are the wines we’re featuring for January:
Spain is one of the last frontiers of the Old World, and offers an array of amazing wines from dry whites to bold spicy reds. Spanish wine is getting more and more popular by the day and albarino, one of the main white grapes in Spain, is a good reason why. Rías Baixas is renowned for the the indigenous grape and they produce the world’s most beautiful albarino. El Brazo is clean and bright with high intensity at the nose.You’re going to love this bottle all month. It is fragrant, fruity, floral, with fresh subtle flavors of peach, pineapple and apricot.

Bread & Butter
From the morning mists of the Pacific to the fog that rolls in over the hills and the sun-drenched vines over rocky soils, Bread & Butter’s vineyards benefit from the ideal and natural cool climate for great chardonnay and pinot noir. Their Chardonnay opens with rich notes of vanilla bean and almond husk, reminiscent of a decadent crème brûlée. The creamy notes are balanced by a soft minerality and a hint of tropical fruit. Those creamy notes continue to your palate where they are joined with bright acidity and well-integrated oak that leads into a long, creamy finish. This chardonnay is best of the classic California style that we all know and love.

Jon Luc Thunevin is a rock star in Bordeaux. Back in the 1990s, he started a trend known as garage winemaking, it’s like the Craft Beer, but cooler. He bought a small vineyard of about four acres on the “bad side of the tracks” in St Emilion and turned the world of bordeaux around. He is a true leader in the community, and like any good leader, he practices what he preaches. This man grows the grapes, harvests the grapes, presses the juice, ferments the wine and bottles the end product. He has his hand on every part of the process and it shows in the quality of the wine. A blend of 80% Merlot with the remainder split evenly between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, Presidial is simply delicious and is going to be perfect any meal you throw at it.

Sella and Mosca Reserva
Cannonau di Sardinia, Italy
We’ve talked about cannonau before in an email about grapes by other names. Cannonau is grown on the island of Sardinia. Sardinia is a blue zone, an area where a large amount centenarians live. It’s said the love of their family, a healthy diet and 2 glasses of cannonau keeps the inhabitants of the island living more than a century. Sounds more fun than an apple a day. Two friends, Sella and Mosca, loved the island so much they dedicated their lives to making its finest wines. Over the past century, Sella and Mosca have made the finest estate wines from the local varieties of Sardinia. Their cannonau is everything I love about rustic wine. It’s earthy, gamey, filled with Mediterranean spice, blackberry fruit and chewy tannins. This will keep you warm on those cold nights ahead.
