Domaine Sauvete ‘Antea’ Malbec, Loire Valley, France
A deep, dark hue in the glass, with a wonderful whiff of dark chocolate, pepper and blackberry fruits. A rare, 100% Malbec from the heart of the Loire, which delivers all the muscular power of this great red grape along with a chiseled, spicy intensity pulled from the region’s chalky soils. A mouthful of sweet plums and black cherries lingers for some time on the palate. Rich, supple and deliciously satisfying. Organic $15.99 on the barrel in the wine department.
Domaine Clavel ‘Les Garrigues’, Languedoc, France
52% Syrah, 26% Mourvedre and 22% Grenache. The 2011 Domaine Clavel Les Garrigues has a funky yet exciting nose of barnyard, cherry, meat, scorched earth, and olive. These follow through on the palate with quite a bit of roasted coffee. It is smooth and very tasty. Organic $15.99 on the barrel in the wine department.
Ca’Momi Rosso & Bianco di Napa, California
Napa Valley wines that don’t cost a fortune are generally unheard of. I was a little skeptical when my rep came in with these but the wines are very well made and nicely balanced. I’d grab them up before they realize they can charge us a lot more money.Sustainable. $9.99 in the wood bins in the wine department.
Domaine des Deux Puits, Cotes Catalanes, France
100% Carignan. Deux Puits has magically brought about Carignan’s softer side (it can be a bit too tannic). Here it is well structured and tastes of fresh crushed blackberries. Has a fair amount of meatiness and a whole lot of depth. This is wonderful stuff perfect for hearty meals and for those who like a big hearty wine. Sustainable. $17.99 in the produce department.
