Cabriz Douro Red, TOP 100 and 91 points, Wine Spectator only $10.99/btl       Critical Acclaim!#46 – Highest Rated
Portuguese Wine!Wine Spectator – “A crisp and minerally red, with concentrated flavors of dark cherry, roasted plum and dried raspberry, layered with rich, spicy notes. White chocolate details show on the finish, accented by hints of pepper. Drink now through 2020.”      

From the village of Carregal do Sal in the heart of the Dão region, was born a winery named Dão Sul, a winery inspired by Thursday Cabriz.  This property has a magnificent manor house and centuries old chapel where, throughout the years, it has become a benchmark for winemaking in the region.  Here the vineyards are surrounded by pine trees situated between two main rivers that flow across the Dão, this secular “Quinta” (farm) dates back to the 17th Century! 


The Colheita Seleccionada is a blend of Alfrocheiro (an early ripening grape that has good color, rich tannin, and balance of strawberry-like fruit and acidity), Tinta Roriz (aka Tempranillo in Spain, also an early ripening varietal that produces flavors reminiscent of red fruits, plums, strawberries and blackberries with firm tannins and  it responds well to oak aging) and Touriga Nacional (One of Portugal’s signature grapes, indigenous to the Dão. It has firm, rich color and complex aromas of raspberries, ripe blackcurrants, savory herbs, violets and licorice.).

Winemaker’s Notes

Deep black purple with intense aromas of blackcurrent, stewed plums, cherry, and chocolate. On the palate, full bodied with flavors of berries with a sweet long lasting finish.

Critical Acclaim

  • WW92

    Wilfred Wong of Wine.com“How does one classify a red blend that includes Bordeaux and Rhône varietals? The easy answer: A New World red, but with further evaluation, one can just say that this is fine tasting red wine, no matter where the grapes originated. Just order up a succulent, medium rare rib-eye of beef and all will be good. Medium to deep ruby color; fine and pleasing ripe fruit aroma, fine depth; full bodied, packed and layered on the palate; dry, medium acidity, good balance; ripe fruit, some smoke and wood in the flavors; medium finish. (Tasted: January 12, 2016, San Francisco, CA)”

  • V91

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni“Brilliant ruby. Sexy red berry and lavender pastille aromas are complicated by vanilla and cola. Fleshy raspberry and boysenberry flavors show very good lift, building spiciness and suave florality. Gains sweetness and depth with air, finishing with sexy notes of floral pastilles and slow-building tannins. Quite elegant given its heft and depth. “

  • RP90

    The Wine Advocate“A blend of 78% Shiraz, 12% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2012 The Ball Buster has a pronounced nose of creme de cassis, mocha and dried plums with underlying hints of yeast extract and licorice. Rich, expressive and well-balanced, this full-bodied wine is bursting with black fruit flavor and velvety textured goodness. It finishes with great persistence”

New 2015 Rombauer Chardonnay.

The “Holy Grail” of California Chards!

Just Luscious! Juicy peaches, pineapple and lime greet the nose, followed by vanilla and cedar. Ripe tropical fruit and fig jam flood the lush, silky palate. Soft spice, vanilla and nectarines mark the lengthy finish, while fresh, mouthwatering acidity leaves you longing for another glass.

Very Highly Allocated! If you’re a fan of Rombauer Chardonnay, do not hesitate!

Tres Picos

Tres Picos Garnacha, Borsao $15.99*

  • Winemaker’s Notes

    It has a dark ruby color with shades of purple. On the nose there is a rich aroma of ripe berries with hints of floral tones typical of the Garnacha, a unique variety. In the mouth, it is a full bodied rich wine with a taste of blackberries, strawberries and hints of leather, vanilla and plums. It is perfectly combined with a sweet and pleasant tannin that leads to a long, balanced and smooth finish.

    Critical Acclaim

    • 91 points, Steven Tanzer

      International Wine Cellar“Inky purple. Ripe black raspberry and cherry liqueur scents are brightened by zesty pepper and allspice nuances. Plush and sweet, with powerful cherry and red berry compote flavors given lift by juicy acidity. Gains flesh and depth on the impressively long, spicy finish, which is given shape by fine-grained tannins.”

         Walla Walla Vintners

                 2014 Walla Walla Valley
                   Cabernet Sauvignon
 

Another stunning vintage of this powerful, beautifully layered cabernet. It’s a complex, age-worthy wine. Containing 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 66 % from our Estate and neighboring vineyards of Chan and Tokar – with the remainder coming from Pepper Bridge and Windrow Vineyards. To complete the Bordeaux-like mix we have added 8% Merlot – Seven Hills Vineyard, 5% Cabernet Franc – Weinbau, 3% Petit Verdot – Frazier Bluff Vineyard and 2% Malbec and Carmenere (each) from the Dwelley Vineyard

2015 Columbia Valley Cabernet Franc

Walla Walla Vinters

Walla Walla Vintners

2015 Columbia Valley Cabernet Franc,

 This plump Cabernet Franc contains 84% Franc and 14% Merlot plus a 2% dollop of Carmenére. The Weinbau and Sagemoor Vineyards are the primary source for this Franc with a smaller amount coming from the Grove and Dwelley Vineyards. The Merlot comes from Spring Creek and Kilian Vineyards; the Carmenere was farmed at Dwelley Vineyard. This sassy wine begins with a violet nose bridged by a mid-palate of ox-heart cherry, black raspberry and wild strawberry. The burnt brown sugar finish is a knock out. Decant before serving and enjoy! Walla Walla Vintners has always made one of our favorite Cabernet Francs here at the Wine Seller!

LEONETTI CELLAR

Leonetti cab

 

From Leonetti Cellar:
Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Walla Walla,

2014 Leonetti Cab $109.99 (STILL A LITTLE 2012, 2013 and older vintages as well IN STOCK TOO…)

Tasting Notes on previous vintages…just so you know.

Robert Parker: 94–96 Points
Wine Advocate #213 Jun 2014 Jeb Dunnuck (94-96) Drink: 2014 – 2034 Also from barrel sample, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up knockout creme de cassis, scorched earth, lead pencil and burning ember-like qualities to go with a full-bodied, decadently textured profile on the palate. Possessing plenty of sweet tannin and ample concentration, it stays remarkably graceful and elegant on the palate. It will evolve nicely for two decade or more. While Chris’s 2011s are a fair step back from his smoking good 2010s, they nevertheless possess lively, fresh and elegant characters as well as solid richness. They’re certainly of high quality and worth checking out. His 2012s will be even better, and they have deeper, richer mid-palates and additional structure.

2013 Leonetti Cabernet $121.99/btl.


LEONETTI MERLOT (press on previous vintage)

WALLA WALLA VALLEY

The 2013 Merlot is one of my favorite vintages for Merlot –

ranking along ‘08, ‘05, and ‘98. The wine is dark and

saturated. In the glass, the wine explodes with an ethereal,

complex nose of cinnamon, plum, pomegranate, clove, and a

hint of spring pine forest. On the palate, the wine has delicious

fresh ripe fruit, reminiscent of berry pie filling. Incredible

richness but with a stunning levity that lifts. A dead ringer for

some of the finest Pomerol I have ever tasted. Quite simply an

incredibly sexy, hedonistic wine.

Sangiovese 2014 Walla Walla,  $79.99/btl (just $66.39* with full Wineaux Club discount)  (STILL A LITTLE 2012 and 2013 IN STOCK TOO!)

  • Winemaker’s Notes

    Beautiful deep garnet color. The nose displays driving, dark red Bing cherries. This wine tastes like a liquid expression of that flavor. A unique contributing factor to this wine blend is the addition of 8% of the varietal Aglianico. A first for Walla Walla Valley, we planted this ancient grape of southern Italy in our Serra Pedace Vineyard. We tried a splash of this varietal in the blend and found it fit like a glove, adding structure and a firm core of austere fruit.

    Critical Acclaim

    • Robert Parker 92 points

      The Wine Advocate“A step up over the 2011, the 2012 Sangiovese, which incorporates 7% Syrah, offers classic cedar, spice, earth and dusty minerality to go with plenty of black raspberry and black cherry-styled fruit. Medium-bodied, nicely textured and elegant, with mid-weight richness and fine tannin, it will drink nicely on release and evolve through 2022.
      Range: 90-92 Points”


2011 Leonetti "Reserve" Walla Walla Valley Bordeaux Blend

LEONETTI RESERVE, 2014…still some 2011 and 2013 in stock as well…

WALLA WALLA VALLEY

Dark, saturated, and gorgeous. Intoxicating nose of fresh

flowers, dark red fruit, and a glorious citrus note – which we

are rarely able to capture in our wines. There is also a tiny

sprinkling of cedar shavings, Crème de cassis, and crushed

blackcurrant. Unbelievably vibrant and focused. I’m just in

love with this wine. Palate is plush and long with a core of

sweetness. Respecting the coolness of the vintage, the acidity

is deliciously bright and the tannin low.

Reserve, 2014 Walla Walla $169.99/btl Full price
