Barrel Head Cellars - Cabernet Sauvignon "The Trip", California 2019
Our Best Buy California Cabernet Sauvignon is Back!
Time to stock up on the fantastic new vintage of our top selling Cabernet Sauvignon from Barrel Head Cellars. This is easily the best Cabernet under $15 we've tasted all year. With 20 months of new and used French oak and primarily sunny Lodi fruit, this Cabernet has aromas of rich dark fruit, cocoa, subtle earth, and a touch of barrel spice. On the palate it's medium-plus bodied, with silky tannins and fresh acidity. This is a very well balanced and well-structured wine, perfect with your favorite BBQ or steakhouse favorites, all at a price that's not going to break the bank!

Bodegas Raul Perez - Bierzo Tinto - 'Ultreia St. Jacques',
Castilla y León, Spain 2019
New Vintage - Higher Score! Wine Advocate 94 Points!
"The nose of the 2019 Ultreia Saint Jacques is nothing short of spectacular. It shows the varietal character and the juicy and round style of the Valtuille vineyards. It's harmonious, clean and expressive. They are using more and more stems with long macerations, malolactic in tanks and aging in 30% oak vats (he purchased from Alión) and 70% of the wine in used 225-liter oak barrels for one year. There is only one master blend, which is put into oak vats and bottled by 25,000- to 30,000-bottle lots. In 2019 he produced 110,000 bottles of this wine."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 93+
This is not your typical rosé! ‘Picaro Clarete’ is a whole cluster, spontaneously co-fermented blend of Grenache, Tempranillo, and multiple other indigenous varietals, aged in French oak for 23 months. Where other rosés struggle to compete with the test of time, this wine excels. This is a wine to experience, with aromas of blood orange, toasted hazelnuts, warm cinnamon, tart cherries, peach skin, smokey minerals, and salty watermelon, striking a balance between power and finesse - an exquisite rosé with the complexity to satisfy even the most sophisticated palates.
