Wines of the Week
Each week, we select a few wines from our shop for a 10% discount and some spotlight as to why we think they're so great!
2016 Vinos del Marques Nebbiolo Malbec Blend, Queretaro, Mexico - Vinos del Marques is located in Queretaro, all the way down the 21st parallel and approximately 7,000 feet above sea level. This is an arid southern desert, but its high elevation provides great temperature shifts and makes Queretaro the second largest wine growing region in Mexico. Vinos del Marques is a new winery, started in 2013, but they have one of Mexico's most exciting young winemakers in Mauricio Rodrigues. The wine is composed of 90% Nebbiolo and 10% Malbec, aged in used Fench oak for 9 months. A great accompaniment to hearty winter squash soups with mushrooms.
2018 Finca la Carrodilla 'Canto de Luna' Red Blend, Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico - Finca la Carrodilla, located in the heart of the Valle de Guadalupe, was founded in 2009 and is Mexico's first certified biodynamic winery; their flagship wine, 'Canto de Luna' aptly translates to "the Moonsong." It is a made up of 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Tempranillo, and 33% Syrah, aged for 9 months in French and American oak. Winemaker Gustavo Gonzalez started as a lab technician at Robert Mondavi, eventually becoming head winemaker for all of the red wines, then left to embark on a consulting career, notably at Ornellaia in Tuscany, before starting Mira, an organic winery in Napa Valley. He returned to Mexico in 2015 to become the winemaker at Finca la Carrodilla. A ideal wine for bbq ribs, chicken and veggies.
2015 Vinos Lechuza Nebbiolo, Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico- This wine sees 34 months in new French oak and shows aromas of earthy truffles, cinnamon, a hint of violet, followed by a palate with notes of brown sugar, cedar, and dark berries. Bright acidity continues throughout with silky tannins and layers of dark fruit on the finish. It is a great pairing with grilled red meats.
2015 Vinos Lechuza 'Amantes' Red Blend, Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico - This is a blend comprised of 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 20% Merlot, 17% Nebbiolo, and 10% Tempranillo, aged for 30 months in new French and American oak barrels. The Amantes blend changes with the vintage to represent the best possible blendfrom the vineyard. Vinos Lechuza was founded in 2005 producing about 1,000 cases per year. A great accompaniment to beef stew or steak au poivre.
