Wines of the Week

This Week's Wine Discoveries


Salentin Malbec Reserve Valle de Uco 2014 ($19) - Smooth and quite approachable for a full-bodied wine. Bright fruit, minerality with notes of plum and dark cherry. WW 88

Mulderbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé 2016 ($13) - This wine will go with just about any food you like. Pronounced leather and cedar on the nose, with a firm spine of strawberry and watermelon flavor. Since it's 100% Cabernet, it tastes just like the big red version, only much lighter - and pinker. WW 88

Contrade Negroamaro Puglia 2015 ($10) - The Negroamaro grape is characteristic in Puglia, which is the heel of the Italian boot. Deep ruby color offering a nose of dark flowers and honey. Interesting flavors of warm cherry, blueberry, and cocoa. Just a bit on the sweet side. WW 89
