Dolcetto


Monte Volpe Primo Rosso Monte Volpe Primo Rosso $11.00

Shhh! Two years on oak, varietals that suit the CA climate and a talented and down to earth winemaker result in a wonderful everyday red from Mendocino. This is one I always have around as its food friendly and nicely balanced. A $20-$30 wine hiding in a $11 bottle.



Carlin de Paola Piemonte Rosso Carlin de Paola Piemonte Rosso $15.00

A perfect summer red! Intense ruby red with soft garnet nuances in the glass, the Piemonte Rosso is intriguingly fresh, fruity and spicy on the nose. Perfectly round and balanced, pair with simple dishes like fresh cheese, ham, salami, or pizza. Easier drinking than most wines from this region.



Domenico Clerico Visadi Dolcetto Domenico Clerico Visadi Dolcetto $17.00

Located on the family vineyards in the Monforte díAlba commune, this 100% Dolcetto is a beautiful expression of what this grape can do. With leather, cherry, raspberry and tobacco accents, and a little acidity that goes a long way, itís really hard to not drink a second bottle. This gem will go with our sopressata on a platter, or any sharp hard cheese.



Luigi Giordano Langhe Rosso Luigi Giordano Langhe Rosso $18.00

A really fun and unique wine. The bouquet is full and fruity, with hints of crisp dried flowers, dried plum and red fruit jam. The light spicy notes are just delicately noticed. The wine is full-bodied, very drinkable, and well balanced. It's best with a light chill, drinks like a bright Beaujolais.



Wind Gap Soif Wind Gap Soif $26.00

Fresh cherries, rose petals, cinnamon, blackberries and rich creamy fruit fill out both the exuberant aromas and flavors of this wine. Textured and succulent, this irresistibly light and chug-able wine is perfect for any occasion that requires copious amounts of delicious wine.



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Bonavita Red

    #1 Bonavita Red

    Made from four grapes harvested later than usual to achieve a greater ripeness and smoothness. A deep and inky wine, with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. Nice ripe fig and cherry with chocolate and licorice flavors. Just enough oak to give it some backbone.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #2 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays. (behind by 13 bottles)

  • Tintero Moscato

    #3 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible. (behind by 5 bottles)

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #4 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. tied

Fun New Arrivals

    A slightly different and wonderful lighter take on Priorat. The gorgeous blue slate show immediately on the nose, Carignan is there but with richness and elegance. Really pretty and an homage to the fruit. Gorgeous leather and blue black fruit flavors with spice and soft leather. Organic, hand picked and just 9 months in French, this really is a lovely wine!

  • Armas de Guerra Mencia

    Armas de Guerra Mencia

    An excellent introduction to Bierzo's native varietal, the palate is fresh, elegant, and clean. Energetic aromas of fresh blue fruits, violet and white pepper, plus a subtle touch of licorice. Supple and gently sweet on the palate, offering sappy boysenberry and floral highlights with a hint of smokiness.

  • Porron Decanter

    Porron Decanter

    The porron wine pitcher is a festive way to serve wine. Either use as a decanter or just pick up the porron and tilt it so that a thin stream of wine pours directly into your mouth! It takes some skill, but it is fun at a party to see how well you and your friends master the technique. Each porron holds 1 liter, which is a perfect size to hold a bottle of wine.

  • Poseidon Pinot Noir

    Poseidon Pinot Noir

    From vineyards with a view of the bay comes this well balanced, lively and delicious Pinot Noir. A easy drinking, medium-bodied wine showing off some rare and black pepper spiced Hungarian oak to balance the raspberry aromas and flavors.
