Holiday Wine Gift Packs
To help take some of the guess work out of selecting a gift of wine for a loved one for the holidays, we have created a three-tiered offering, consisting of a two-bottle gift pack with one French and one Spanish wine, each. The three price levels are $25, $45, and $95.
Gift Pack No. One – $25.00
2014 Enrique Mendoza ‘La Tremenda’ Monastrell Alicante
“This wine has six months in used 500-liter barrels and a variable time in vat, between six months and one year. The 2014 feels very tender, it has the esparto grass austerity of the stony vineyards with the chalky soils and a myriad of Mediterranean herbs. They used some stems for the fermentation, which added a fine thread and makes it subtly textured. It has the dusty tannins and the saline tastiness of the limestone soils. It represents a superb value and a great introduction to the Monastrell from Alicante; the price is hard to believe.” 92 points, Wine Advocate
2014 Les Vignerons d’Estézargues ‘Cuvée des Galets’ Cotes du Rhone
Anyone looking for a delicious, crimson-purple, crunchy, violet-scented Rhone will have hit the jackpot with this delicious red! Les Galets Rouge is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan, fermented cool with natural yeast and bottled without filtration, as it boldly states on the label! Sourced from organic and biodynamic (not exclusively) vineyards, Les Galets Rouge explodes with plump juicy berry fruit, licorice and spice.
Gift Pack No. Two – $45.00
2010 Chateau du Courlat Lussac-Saint-Émilion
Coming from one of the lesser-known Right Bank appellations, the 2010 Chataeu Courlat is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. While the Merlot dominates, its ripeness is tempered by solid tannins, stylish black current flavors, and a firm, long finish. Michel Rolland is the wine consultant to this estate. Both impressive and delicious!
2011 Áster Crianza Ribera del Duero
The 2010 Aster Crianza feels young and unevolved, with notes of red and black berry-fruit, spicy undertones and a medium-bodied palate with a velvety texture and fine tannins. It is extremely fresh, with good acidity. This is easy-to-drink and gives lots of pleasure. Quite representative of Ribera and a good value too. Drink now-2017. Aster is the Ribera del Duero winery from La Rioja Alta in Haro. They own 95 hectares planted around the winery in the village of Anguix, close to Roa in the province of Burgos. These are the best wines I’ve tasted from them, with better balance and less oak than in the past. 90 points, Wine Advocate
Gift Pack No. Three – $95.00
2012 Chateau La Nerthe Chateauneuf-du-Pape
A Chateauneuf-du-Pape from one of the oldest and most storied estates in the appellation. A blend of 48% Grenache, 29% Syrah, 22% Mourvedre, and 1 % Cinsault.
“Juicy and lively, with good energy coursing through the core of plum, anise, blackberry and fruitcake flavors, while sweet spice and juniper hints fill the finish. Offers a chewy feel without being heavy. Best from 2016 through 2023.” 91 points, Wine Spectator
2013 Bodegas El Nido ‘Clio’ Jumilla
I had two vintages to taste from the two wines from El Nido, starting with the 2013 Clio, produced from what the Gil family consider one of their most successful vintages as a blend of Monastrell with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. It started fermenting in stainless steel vats and finished in new oak barrels where it also underwent malolactic fermentation and 23 months élevage. The oak is more evident here than in the 2012, but the wine seems to have better freshness and more acidity and in the long run it should integrate it nicely. This is always a more accessible cuvée than El Nido. 60,000 bottles.
