Tennis starts with love – and a glass of Paumiste. This rosé is produced from an organically-farmed blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Carignan blend from the Southern Rhône Valley. Less than 5,000 cases produced.
The Southern Rhône accounts for nearly 95% of the entire Rhône Valley’s production.
This Beaujolais-inspired Malbec is exciting and oh so fresh. There is a slight minerality and chalkiness expressive of the terroir, and the wine is produced using organic farming practices and hand-harvested fruit. Only 1,250 cases made. Fair warning, this could be your new favorite chillable red – seriously, we would drink a lot more Malbec if they all tasted like this.
The unique use of carbonic maceration (not frequently seen on Malbec) renders it juicy, jammy, and damn delicious.
This is the first vintage of No. 9 Napa Cabernet, and there’s a reason The French Laundry was first to pick it up. The palate is dense and complex, marked by a long and polished finish. Organic farming practices, unfined / unfiltered, and only 1,500 cases produced.
Cabernet Sauvignon is known for its high levels of acid and tannins, making well-made examples excellent candidates for long-term cellaring.
California sunshine in a glass! The palate is refreshing and bright with an added element of crushed stones and sweet grass on the finish. Sustainably farmed, minimal intervention, and only 1,500 cases produced.
Although the Santa Ynez Valley is better known for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this tasty Sauvignon Blanc promises to give the region’s two more popular varieties a run for their money.
Your everyday, go-to wine! The palate is lively, crisp, mineral-driven and pure, marked by a flinty finish. Produced using sustainable farming practices.
Petit Chablis wines can come from a larger growing area than those specified under the Chablis AOC. They are generally fresh, steel vinified, and meant to be consumed young.
This Chardonnay is a total babe. The wine’s vibrant nose leads to a zippy yet round and silky palate. In short, it’s an all-around crowd pelaser. Organic farming practices and only 90 cases produced.
Santa Barbara County is a large AVA within California that is best known for its Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah.
Light, fresh, and boasting a balance of tart red fruit and earthy characteristics, this Pinot Noir is an ideal match for many meals… or simply enjoyable on its own. The wine was made from organic farming practices, native yeasts, and has a long, dry finish.
Pinot Noir has unofficially become the signature grape of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Expressions from this region rival some of the Old World’s best (yes, Burgundy included!)
This Pinot is perfectly balanced and totally delicious. With regards to Burgundian Pinot Noir, this wine is rather Volnay-like, and finishes with stony minerality and soft, smooth tannins.Sustainable farming practices and only 92 cases produced.
Because of its high acid, low tannins, and all-around fruit forwardness, Pinot Noir is one of the most food-friendly red wines on the planet.
This Sangiovese is powerful herbal, and finishes long. The wine’s notes of balsamic and oregano promise to have you craving pizza in no time! Organically farmed, minimal intervention, and made from hand-picked fruit.
Chianti Superiore signifies that the wine was produced with stricter standards than other wines from the region. The designation has existed since 1996.
This wine is all about bright flavors, racy acidity, and thirst-quenching freshness. The flavor lingers, but the wine goes down fast. Basically, it’s Marlborough, New Zealand to a Sauvy B TEE!
Fruit for the 2020 bottling of this wine hails from two vineyards that are farmed sustainably through Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand, with a long term view on biodiversity in the vineyard and proactive farming practices.
This varietal Sangiovese bright and dry with fine-grained tannins, though its bright acidity and a long, herbal finish will definitely make you want to take a bite of food. Pizza, pasta, or Tuscan-inspired beef, anyone?
Varietal means that the wine is produced from one single grape variety – in the case of this tasty bottle, varietal means 100% Sangiovese!
