Argiolas Costamolino 2018
Save $4.00 (23%)
Vermentino often shows the fragrance of macchia, the mix of evergreen shrubs and herbs that typifies the Sardinian landscape. Costamolino hints at aromas of pine and mint coupled with ripe stone fruit and sweet citrus. The palate is at once vibrant and textural and finishes with lingering acidity. Costamolino is produced with the Mediterranean table in mind. The wine's lemony acidity will accent rock lobster or squid but carries enough weight to work with spaghetti topped with bottarga or a bowl of brothy clams and fregola. Vermentino's herbal flavor can also highlight vegetables such as fava beans or fennel.

Allegrini Valpolicella 2017With more than six generations of winegrowing tradition, Allegrini is the most-awarded winery in the Veneto and the benchmark for Amarone. The Allegrini family’s innovations in appassimento winemaking have made the estate’s classic Amarone and Valpolicella wines exemplars of excellence, while their emphasis on single vineyard expressions of local grape varieties has drawn renewed interest in the Veneto. About the Wine: Ruby red in color, with purplish-blue highlights, this wine offers up classic qualities of Corvina, the historic grape variety of the appellation. The fragrant nose is filled with red fruit and aromatic herbs, and the wine’s flavors echo the nose, led by prominent notes of cherries with fresh hints of pepper and more herbs. This young wine is distinctly lively and playful on the palate, while maintaining great elegance and finesse.

Stags' Leap Winery Napa Valley Petite Syrah 2015
Bogle Phantom 2015Phantom, Bogle's mysterious apparition of ripe berry and relentless spice, returns to haunt wine lovers. Full of concentration and intensity, this wine will tease, tantalize and linger long after the last sip is gone. Wild berries, black pepper and hints of juniper are framed by the influence of oak aging with baking spices with a hint of toasty vanilla. On the palate, the entry is explosive, supported by chewy, chalky tannins that will age this wine for decades. The lingering, complex finish leaves one in anticipation of the next sip. Welcome the winery ghost into your home again with this latest vintage…before it vanishes again.
