Argyle Nuthouse Pinot Noir 20122012 Nuthouse Pinot Noir comes from the low-elevation, warm, southeastern slope of our Lone Star Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. Brilliantly garnet in color, the aromas are initially delicate and ethereal, hinting at fresh rose petal and red earth. As it opens up, more complex aromas emerge of dark chocolate, anise, and wild cherries. The mid palate is deep and creamy, poised against firm tannins and long, savory acid. You'll want to drink it right out of the gate, as this 2012 vintage comes to you fully assembled, but don't sleep on aging this little beauty, as she's got many, many years to go in the bottle. Grilled venison loin with saffron white beans, almond romesco, and bone marrow toast.

Idilico Garnacha 2012The wine exhibits aromas of tart cherry, strawberry jam with hints of moist rock and some citrus notes. In the palate the wine is medium bodied with luscious mouthfeel and a lingering finish.
Domaine Besson Givry Les Grands Prétans 2013Wine Information: • Fermentation is all done with indigenous yeasts after a brief 3-5 day cold maceration • Aging 12 months in a combination of large 500L and traditional 228L barriques – 50% new Winery Information: Xavier Besson holds 7 hectares of vines in the appellation of Givry, having inherited the estate in 1989 from his parents. Most of the vines are in the immediate area around the domaine (or chateau, really) with ‘Les Grands Prétans’ vineyard basically their backyard. The domaine is still quite small at 7 hectares and all the work is done by hand always with an aim for low yields and big, ripe fruit. The vineyards are grown in clay soil, with a deep bedrock of limestone from vines that are 30 years old (average). The fermentation is all done with indigenous yeasts after a brief 3-5 day cold maceration. Aging takes place for 12 months in a combination of large 500L and traditional 228L barriques – 50% new. The combination of old vines, conscientious vineyard work, and reasonable yields, all contribute to the crowd pleasing, balanced wines that Besson produces. Farming from superb vineyards like ‘Les Grands Prétans,’ Besson always provides superb Burgundy VALUE: concentrated and densely expressive with brilliant perfume, heady fruit, and a velvety mouthfeel.
