August Wines of the Month

NV Bodegas Dibon Cava Rosé, Penedes, Spain
Regularly $13.99, August Special Price $11.89
This pleasant and refreshing sparkler has aromas of sweet tart candy and ripe strawberry. On the palate this wine is anything but sweet with crisp cranberry and tart cherry flavors that finish with a dry, crunchy snap. Try this with any fresh seafood or roasted poultry.

2016 Domaine de la Bregeonnette Muscadet Sevre et Maine, Loire Valley, France
Regularly $15.99, August Special Price $13.59
A clean, fresh, oceanic, mineral driven expression of Melon de Bourgogne, perfect for local New England coastal cuisine.

2017 Cantina Scala Ciro Bianco, Calabria, Italy
Regularly $16.99, August Special Price $14.44
This wine is made from the Greco Bianco grape with expressions of green pineapple, star fruit, passion fruit and tropical flowers. Lush, clean, and zippy on the palate, this wine alternates waves of citrus fruits and tropical fruits, along with herbal suggestions of bay leaf and dried oregano. A zesty, minerally that makes it easy to enjoy this with seafood pasta dishes with white sauces, grilled octopus, roast pork, swordfish, albacore tuna and branzino.

2017 Mary Taylor Bordeaux Blanc, Bordeaux, France
Regularly $14.99, August Special Price $12.74
A reminder that not all French sauvignon blanc comes from the Loire, this bottling is made in stainless steel, and is primarily sauvignon blanc, blended with a small amount of sémillon. Balanced and crisp, with plenty of summery citrus aromas to pair with the July heat. Pair with fresh salads, goat cheese, or simple grilled vegetables.

2017 Frenzy Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand
Regularly $11.99, August Special Price $9.99
Capturing the spirit of New Zealand, Frenzy is crisp, refreshing, vibrant, aromatic and energetic with hints of peach, grapefruit, lime, melon and fresh cut grass. Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc is a great choice for fresh goat cheese.

2017 Walnut City Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Regularly $16.99, August Special Price $14.44
Refreshing, bright, and dry. The 2017 vintage of this Pinot Gris personifies this classic Willamette Valley mainstay. Favoring a spectrum that emphasizes elegance and friendliness over width and weight, this Pinot Gris is casual but smartly capable of complimenting a range foods. From simple oven-roasted chicken to spicy Indian or Thai dishes, this wine is as versatile as it is delicious.

2016 Anne Amie Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Regularly $24.99, August Special Price $20.99
Vibrant, spice-tinged raspberry and floral scents, along with an exotic touch of orange zest. Silky and appealingly sweet, offering juicy red fruit flavors and a deeper suggestion of bitter chocolate that emerges on the back half. Puts on weight with air and finishes with lingering red berry character and smooth tannins. Try with grilled salmon or tuna.

2015 Monte Bernardi ‘Retromarcia’ Chianti Classico, Tuscany, Italy
Regularly $24.99, August Special Price $20.99
Monte Bernardi’s wines have an elegant, fresh, beautiful, silky take on Chianti Classico. Retromarcia is 100% Sangiovese, showing great integrity of what Sangiovese can be in it’s purest form. From a mixture of shale, limestone and sandstone soils which give great expression of terroir. Feel the blackberry, cherry and red plum fruit with earth tones and long silky finish. A classic pairing with bistecca fiorentina.

2015 Cantina Due Palme Le Sciare Primitivo, Puglia, Italy
Regularly $13.99, August Special Price $11.89
While Primitivo may have the same genetic makeup of Zinfandel, as a wine it’s more similar to those of the old world. Le Scaire is soft, ripe and elegant. A great match with summer barbecue.

2015 Mary Taylor Bordeaux Rouge, Bordeaux, Rouge
Regularly $14.99, August Special Price $12.74
A robust exuberant wine – delicious when slightly chilled – bursting acidity makes for refreshing oak-free minerally vibrant Bordeaux rouge. Try with grilled veggie or even some lamb chops.

2015 Suertes del Marquis ‘7 Fuentes’, Canary Islands, Spain
Regularly $21.99, August Special Price $18.69
The pungent nose is redolent of smoke-accented dark berries, candied violet and a hint of lively white pepper. Vibrant, sappy blackberry and cassis flavors develop and take on weight in the glass. Try with grilled lamb.

2015 Doomaine Capmartin ‘l’Instant’ Rouge, Madiran, France
Regularly $19.99, August Special Price $16.99
Young, juicy blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat. Tannat has the most antioxidants and reservatrol of any grape. Picnic snack like fatty cheese, pate and foie gras are wonderful ideas for this wine.
