What Are We Drinking? Urbina Rioja Crianza

The leaves are crunchy and the crock pots are heating up. Kevin is making the switch to red wine, and this one goes with all the meats. 2012 Urbina Rioja Crianza - Basque Country, Spain My wine of the fall is Rioja. They have a tendency to over-deliver and the 2021 Urbina is no exception. Aromas of pipe tobacco, wild raspberry, and cedar. Just enough fruit on the palate with great structure and well-integrated flavor of cinnamon and vanilla. The finish is silky smooth with great tannins. Aged in French and American oak. It's never too cold to pull [...]

*MORE* Haunted Wines of the Month from Dracula!

Don't forget about our October wines of the month, which are all haunted. Here are four *MORE* of them. As is evidenced by the extremely untouched photo below, Dracula keeps some very nice wines with him in his casket, and he holds his wine bottles between his pinky and ring finger, as is the Transylvanian way. Look below the photo to see what Dracula has to say about these four wines. And because we're not 100% afraid of Dracula, we carry these Dracula-endorsed wines (we surrounded the shop with garlic or rutabagas or something). "Pablo Claro Sauvignon Blanc, Castilla-La Mancha, [...]

Haunted Wines of the Month from Dracula!

Don't forget about our October wines of the month, which are all haunted. Here are four of them. Just when you think it's safe to cross your living room so you can take two new bottles of wine to your guests, Dracula appears with two bottles that you must try, "Or else." Dracula realizes that the two bottles you have are really good, but Dracula has to be Dracula and force his wine selections on everyone. Look below the photo to see what Dracula has to say about these four wines, and then grab them for yourself.   "Domaine Barou [...]

Wines from the Creature of the Black Lagoon!

Two more of our October wines of the month, suitable for drinking on their own, at dinner, or in a haunted swamp. Do you ever get the vacant stare that the Creature from the Black Lagoon has when deciding on a wine (see photo below)? It's understandable. However, we taste every wine we carry, and if it's not up to our standards — and we have very high standards — we won't carry it. So you can get rid of that vacant, lagoon-like stare when choosing one of our wines, because they're all fantastic. Look below the photo to see [...]

What *Else* Are We Drinking Now? Gilles Gelin Beaujolais Villages

Kevin is pairing Beaujolais with Bach, among other things. Domaine Barou Avec Le Temps - Charnas, Rhône Valley, France When most people think of Beaujolais, they think of Nouveau. When most people think of Burgundy, they think of Pinot Noir. This isn't either of those, but it's fantastic! Try this 2018 Gamay from Gilles Gelin. It goes with all of the foods, but this is especially great with pork and dishes with lots of herbs. We are all pretty obsessed with this. Now you get to see why. Gilles Gelin Beaujolais Villages - Beaujolais, France Friends & Family: $19.99/btl (reg. [...]
