Cuatro Rayas 'Green and Social' Verdejo Blend Rueda, Spain 2020
Nobody goes to Rueda so we'll bring the wine to you. Rueda is literally in the middle of nowhere with lots of sandy soils, really hot summers and freezing cold winters. Sounds inhospitable? The phylloxera pest thought so. The Rueda region that were not impacted by the phylloxera. The verdejo grape has a long an illustrious past in this area and has morphed just enough over the years to survive the weather and the pests.
The Cuatro Rayas co-operative launced Green & Social wines to launch new environmental initiatives and support the local economy. Their bottles are made of lightweight recycled glass, the aluminum capsules are free of plastics and 100% recyclable, and, a portion of the profits are being donated to rural families in the Rueda area.
The Verdejo grape is believed to have been first brought to Spain in the 11th century.
Domaine de Damase Grenache Rhone (Vaucluse), France 2020
In some kind of upside-down place, on opposite day, a portal opened for a brief moment and the Domaine de la Damase wines became available to the US by way of a California winemaker sponsoring a French winemaker. We know, it's crazy. But back in 2011, Sebastien Latour interned for Kenny Likitprakong (Hobo Wine Co.) and a lasting friendship was born.
This 100% (organically farmed) Grenache is fermented whole-cluster in concrete vats, then aged in old oak foudres (giant vessels that impart no tannin), allowing the fresh-fruited juice to shine. This palate is rustic and chunky, with loads of dark red and black fruit on the palate and notes of pink peppercorn on the nose. Not your typical fruit punch Grenache!
Chateau Roland 'La Garde' Rouge Cotes De Bordeaux (Blaye) France 2018
The creation of the Cotes de Bordeaux appellation about a decade ago was really a win for wine drinkers, as evidenced by this delicious and affordable Bordeaux blend. 5 distinct regions along this hilly limestone-studded section of the Gironde river collectively make-up the Cotes de Bordeaux.
The Blaye sub-region in particular is becoming known for its young drinking Bordeaux blends, like this one! 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet, from 20 year old Biodynamically farmed vines, this ripe and juicy blend is ready to drink with about 20-30 minutes.
