What's Just Landed

  • New Years Week


    2020 is almost over but have you thought about what you’l be chugging to say god bye of this shit-year?

    From the political arena to the medical one…we’ve had mostly downs yet the markets still seem to be going up.  Personally…I think 2021 will not be as happy as some would like to think.  Yes we have the vaccine yet now we are hearing about mutations? And yet…the market is going up.  Sooner or later I have this strange feeling the market will crash like it did back in ’08 and the only thing to save will be the fact we can drink wine.  Wash away the pain with a nice glass of whatever your favorite flavor is.

    Here’s what we have coming in for you this week

    Two special deals that just walked into the shop…

    Silvio Grasso has always been one of our favorite Barolo in the shop but when the price goes down by $7 a bottle…it’s even better!


    What about some Gianni Brunelli Rosso di Montalcino for $13 off a bottle?  To be honest…pretty sure this is just the leftover Brunello.


    Then there is the sweet (no actually sweet) Cremant de Bourgogne from Domaine du Prieure.  So good…so inexpensive and so amazing!


    What about a little grower-action at a price that’ll make you drink Champagne every night of the week?


    We also have a few bottles of Cristal left over for you ballers out there…



    And that is all for now.  Bring on the new year!

  • Domaine Tempier 2018 & 2019 Release!

    2018 & 2019 Release
    Although this year has seemed to be a total shit-show, there are some things we can look forward to...like the release of the current vintages from Domaine Tempier.  This year Tempier lost its jewel of the estate, Lulu. She passed away this year at the young age of 102 and although she is gone, she will never be forgotten.  From her greeting guest, making dinner and her amazing cook books...her and her late husband Lucien worked Domaine Tempier into what it is today...the most magical place in Provence.  Well for me that is.
    Here are the current releases from Tempier.  Please remember that if you want any of these wines...get them now as we tend to sell out pretty fast and I don't want to hear about how you didn't know they came in.

    2019 Domaine Tempier Bandol Blanc

    2018 Domaine Tempier Pour Lulu Classique Bandol Rouge 

    2018 Domaine Tempier La Tourtine Bandol Rouge

    2018 Domaine Tempier La Migoua Bandol Rouge

    We can either ship the wines out to you or you can swing by the shop and pick them up.  Wines will arrive in the shop on Wednesday the 9th of December.

    Hope you're ready for these. 

  • Château Pontet-Canet Vertical 12-Pack

    After 25 years of overseeing his family's prized Pauillac estate, Alfred Tesseron has just released a range of beautifully curated vertical sets spanning two decades from what many consider the most popular wine of the appellation. That's right - Three 750ml bottles from four superb vintages in a custom box. The 2010 sure is showing well:
    " The 2010 Pontet-Canet offers a very deep garnet color. Whoa—the nose explodes with a vast array of black fruit preserves and savory nuances: plum preserves, blackcurrant cordial, black cherry coulis and licorice with wafts of dried lavender, melted chocolate, charcuterie, black olives, truffles and camphor plus a hint of sandalwood. The full-bodied palate is completely filled with black fruits, exotic spices and earthy nuances with a firm foundation of ripe, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing with epic length and depth. So much more expressive and seductive than a lot of 2010s at this stage, and yet it is still incredibly youthful! 100 points." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    This mighty vertical contains three bottles of each vintage: 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012 all in a custom wood box.  Arrival date is sometime around December 8th.  I expect these to sell out pretty fast as Potet-Canet is one of the blue chip chateau that I look at when investing in futures.  I still have several bottles from the '89 vintage that are aging much more graceful than most Hollywood elite with the same age!  
    If the price scares you, look at it this way...tell your spouse that this is an "investment" and all will be forgiven.  Least that's what I do.  Better yet...get three friends together and split the case three ways.  This is the best way to really experience what Pauillac has to offer without having to drop the cash on Lafite.

  • San Felice w/ Katie on 3/13

    Tasting at 4pm
    People the time has come where we can no longer have tastings with 250 people showing up. I am sorry!! That being said, we'll still be having our Friday tastings and get this...traffic is a lot lighter, the parking lot in the back is clear and open and best of all...there's a pretty good chance it's gonna snow this Friday. Basically what I'm saying is...I have done everything humanly possible to keep the shop free of any viruses! There will be no spit bucket and I'll be using plastic cups that can be tossed in the garbage.

    Now the wines...

    2018 Vermentino "Perolla"
    2016 "Perolla" Maremma Toscana IGT
    2017 Chianti Classico
    2015 "Il Grigio" Chianti Classico Riserva
    2015 Pugnitello Toscana IGT

    These wines are timeless in that every single time we've had San Felice in the shop it's been a blowout. The wines over deliver and the prices are so low you can afford to buy an extra case of TP and a few bottles of each!
  • 2019 Rosé Release on 3/14

    Tasting at 3pm
    I was able to taste a few 2019 Rosé today and I thought...it's been such a crappy start to 2020 for myself and my family...why not try to brighten up my day and yours? I mean...we are all fighting the same fight right now and we all could use a little bump to make things brighter. Here are the three 2019 Rosé I'll be pouring.

    2019 Pico Maccario Lavignone Rosato $17
    2019 Castello di Bossi Rosato $17
    2019 Botromagno Rosé di Lulu $17

    These are the very first rosé of the season and no virus will hold us back from enjoying they bright beautiful notes. Stay safe out there people and make sure to wash your hands.
