Badebec Rosso Cuneaz Nadir $24.96

This is a passito-style wine meaning that the grapes are dried after picking for two weeks before pressing. Made from Petit Rouge, Fumin, Vien de Nus, it is a drier and fuller-bodied wine than your typical red from the Val d’Aosta. Its aromas of dried sour cherry, anise, and earth, with nice acidity and mellow tannins, make for a truly unique and delicious addition to your table. – Vincent Grace, Wine & Spirits Consultant

7 Fuentes “El Lance,” Suertes del Marqués, Valle de la Orotava $21.96

The rich, volcanic soils of the Canary Islands continue to provide some of the most exciting reds in the world today. This red from Suertes del Marqués is utterly elegant, with powerful, smoky minerals and barnyard aromas counterbalanced by a solid core of red fruit and spice. – Jon Miner, Wine & Spirits Consultant

Gaillac, “Les Gourmands,” L’Enclos des Braves, 2016 $14.96

Made from the Duras and Braucol grapes (a.k.a. Fer Servadou), this Gaillac is a fantastic, rich wine that’s beautifully fresh and light on its feet. With notes of red currants and dark berries, this wine is biodynamic and—like many wines from Southwest France—an absolute steal for the price. – Marc Mousky, Wine & Spirits Consultant

Broadside “Margarita Vineyard” Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 $19.96

Winemaking and life partners, Brian and Stephanie Terrizzi use a hands-off approach in both the vineyards and the winery to produce this delightful Cabernet Sauvignon. They let the grape shine through without using new oak that might mask its aromas. A balanced and thoughtfully made Cabernet to have on your radar! – Bambi Ray, Sales Manager

Calcarius Rosso Puglia $22.96

A fun natural wine made from the Negroamaro grape down in the south of Italy. Fresh, bright fruit sit alongside earthy undertones. Try this for your next pizza or pasta night! – Josh Mizrahi, Wine & Spirits Consultant
