  • Maitre de Chai Cabernet Sauvignon Gala Mountain Vineyard 2021

    Maitre de Chai Cabernet Sauvignon Gala Mountain Vineyard 2021

    Napa Valley, California

     

    Vinous 96 points!

     

    Maitre de Chai Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful expression of Napa Valley from a single vineyard, Gala Mountain Vineyard. It is rare when a winemaker has a background as a top-level chef in restaurants. Nonetheless, there are some interesting parallels between these two noble professions. In the case of Alex Pitts and Marty Winters of the Maitre de Chai winery, both food and wine figure prominently in their resumés. Having worked in top kitchens, cellars and even as front-of-the-house sommeliers, this combined experience has informed their approach to making their own wines. Their winery, Maitre de Chai, was established in 2012. Together they look to make wines of high quality in a way that best showcases the ingredients that top California vineyards can produce. For this Cab, it’s the Gala Mountain Vineyard in Napa Valley. The Gala Mountain Vineyard sits at 1,000' above Napa Valley on the slopes of Mt. George just East of the town of Napa. The Northwest facing, terraced vineyard was planted in 1992 and is cooled by the constant breezes of the San Pablo Bay. The six acre vineyard was converted from organic to biodynamic in 2018.

     

    “The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Gala Vineyard is fabulous. It emerges from a terraced vineyard at 1,800 feet in elevation in Napa Valley, just above the Coombsville AVA. Rich, dark and beautifully structured, the 2021 possesses notable pedigree and character. Black cherry, plum, gravel, licorice, bay leaf and espresso all race across the palate. Readers who enjoy old-school Napa Cabernets will adore this. This wine, if sold in Napa Valley, would cost four to five times as much. Don't miss it!”—Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 96 points!

     

    Enjoy Maitre de Chai Cabernet Sauvignon with filet mignon, rack of lamb, steak, grilled vegetables and aged cheeses.

  • Tenuta Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato 2022

    Tenuta Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato 2022

    Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy Jeb Dunnuck 93 points! Tenuta Guada al Tasso Il Bruciato from Antinori is a beautiful super Tuscan from the Bolgheri region. Il Bruciato was first produced in 2002 in one of the most difficult vintages ever for the Guado al Tasso estate. The wine is a modern interpretation of Bolgheri's unique terroir made from carefully selected Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah grapes from Guado al Tasso's vineyards. The geological composition of the soil is diversified giving the wine structure and complexity. “An opaque purple blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, the 2022 Il Bruciato is luxurious with notes of blackberry liqueur and some blue fruit coming through along with notes of violets, olive, and black licorice. Full-bodied, with a weightless and seamless feel, it has no harsh edges and offers ripe tannins with a supple texture, fresh acidity, and clean ripeness through a rather long finish.” —Jeb Dunnuck 93 points! Enjoy Tenuta Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato with veal, pasta, osso buco, and aged cheeses.

  • Virgen del Galir Godello Pagos del Galir 2021

    Virgen del Galir Godello Pagos del Galir 2021

    Valdeorras, Spain Wine Spectator 89 points! The Virgen del Galir winery is located in Éntoma, a small village in Orense, Galicia, in the northwest of Spain. It has been part of the CVNE family since 2018. The Galir Valley falls under the Valdeorras DO (designation of origin). The winery’s philosophy is to make wines that reflect the values of the land while respecting local traditions. This begins with the winery’s name, a tribute to Our Lady of Galir, the protector of the region’s vineyards. The history of wine growing in Valdeorras dates back to the Roman times, where there are references in Latin texts made to grape vines planted in the region along the river Sil. The name itself means "Valley of Gold." The region was given DO status in 1945. “Grapes used for Pagos del Galir Godello are a selection from our vineyards in Entoma, Regueiron y O Serro. Soils in these high altitude vineyards with a 30% of inclination are mostly slate. A dry summer has provided a full maturation of the grape causing a fresh and aromatic harvest, probably one of the best of the last 10 years. Lemon color, clean and shiny. Intense nose, white fruit, bush, stones. Fresh in the mouth, silky, elegant, balanced, fresh.”-Virgen del Galir “Floral and pretty on the nose, with an enticing note of ripe apricot layered with the snappy tang of salty mineral on the lightly fleshy, mouthwatering palate. Shows hints of almond skin and citrus on the finish. Drink now. 2,900 cases made, 400 cases imported.”—Wine Spectator, 89 points! Enjoy Virgen del Galir Godello Pagos del Galir with grilled shrimp, baked swordfish, roast chicken, tapas and light summer fare.
