What's New

 

 


Lab Rose Lab Rose $12.00

What do we know about Portuguese wine? Not enough apparently! This rose is an excuse to better acquaint yourself with this country. Very feminine aromas of strawberry and pink mulberry. Bubblegum on the palate with the slightest bit of tannin to give this rose structure. Can we say patio pounder??!?



Squadra Squadra $13.00

Imagine yourself lying on a beach in Sicily. Toes in the sand, gazing upon crystal blue waters. This is what you would have in your glass. Beautiful bouquet of rose petals, delicate red fruits and a salinity like smelling the ocean breeze. 100% Nero d'Avola, take a vacation without packing your suitcase.



Bertolani Lambrusco Rose Secco Bertolani Lambrusco Rose Secco $14.00

Most of the Lambrusco that has hit our shores has been syrupy, nasty stuff like Ruinite (ruin is in the name) and whatever they pour in the Garden of Olives. This is a different creature altogether, bringing soft red raspberry and pink grapefruit up front before finishing clean and dry. It will change your worldview in a single serving.



Commanderie de Queyret Commanderie de Queyret $14.00

A gorgeous white Bordeaux to get you salivating. 50% Sauvignon Blanc. 25% Muscadelle, 25% Semillion. Citurs, stone fruits, minerality almost like seashells and salinity. Perfect accompaniment for sea food.

La Picossa La Picossa $15.00

For those of you who are not aware, there is a white Garnacha...and it's awesome! A beautiful bouquet of dried herbs, citrus, stonefruit and toasted almond.

Definitely one for your table.



Tessellae Tessellae $15.00

Grenache, Syrah and Mouvedre take most of the shine in southern France. But this carignan from Languedoc carves out its own spot, rightfully so. Rich dark fruits with a background of floral, spice and minerality. Round, smooth tannins and oh so easy to drink.



Zantho Zweigelt Zantho Zweigelt $15.50

Andau, Burgenland lies on the eastern side of Austria, bordering Hungary. An area studded with lakes along with a cool climate and rocky, gravelly soils. All this goes into creating unique wines, this Zweigelt is no exception. Exuding minerality and an earthy forest floor nose, complemented by cranberry, blueberry and black fruits. Refreshing acidity and soft tannins, this wine is easy to pair with a variety of foods!



Zantho Blaufrankisch Zantho Blaufrankisch $15.50

If you have had our Donausonne Blaufrankisch, this is nothing like it! A beautiful dry wine, enticing minerality, cherry, red fruits with an underlying herbaceous quality.

Can Blau Can Blau $16.00

Wine has been produced in Montsant for over 2,000 years. The diverse soil types and landscapes are conducive to making a high quality product. Surrounding Priorat, and sharing it's Llicorella soil, this wine has a lot going on. Dark cherry, black and blue berries, spice, herbs and minerality. Good amount of tannin with acid to balance.



Robert Oatley Robert Oatley $17.00

From the Margaret River in Australia, this Chardonnay has a lovely balance of character. Stainless steel production with some time on the lee, but no malo (Geek speak). So what you end up with is a Chard with subtle biscuit aromas followed by stone and tropical fruits. Great for a day spent on the patio.



Baracchi Olillio Baracchi Olillio $18.00

Ok, we are a little obsessed with Italian wines here at Bitto. We carry a few lines from this particular producer, and each one has something to offer. This "super Tuscan" blends international varieties like Merlot, Cab Sav, Syrah and Sangiovese. Bright red fruits, beautiful structure and acidity. If you like this wine, try their higher tier products.



Totara Totara $18.00

Vividly ruby in the glass, a shining example of pinot noir coming out of New Zealand. Tart cherry, raspberry, cranberry, savory herbs, spice and earth, all with mouth watering acidity. Pairs excellent with roasted poultry and a Sunday afternoon.



Schieferkopf Schieferkopf $19.00

Acid freaks rejoice! This dry Riesling shows the classic stone minerality and petrol on the nose with floral aromatics as well. The palate yields citrus, green apple and stonefruits with mouth watering acidity. A great food wine or one simply just to drink.



Clos Mazurique Clos Mazurique $19.00

Big, bold, rustic! An Aussie Shiraz made in a more traditional fashion. Exhibiting those dark red and black fruits, pepper and spice. Aged in 100% American oak which adds coconut and dill to the glass. Big body, pleanty of tannins, perfect for grilled meats and BBQ.



Clement Rhum Agricole Clement Rhum Agricole $32.00

Bear Creek cask rum Bear Creek cask rum $37.00

This rum begins with fermented evaporated cane juice, then aged in American oak barrels. At 120 proof you'd expect to be breathing fire after a drink. But this rum is amazingly smooth for such a high ABV. Beautiful character from barrel aging makes this a winner!

Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #1 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.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Tintero Moscato

    #2 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 15 bottles)

  • Donausonne Blaufrankish

    #3 Donausonne Blaufrankish

    If you can't pronounce this grape don't worry! Neither can anyone else. Sweet berry and red fruits in this light, pretty wine from Hungary. Rich flavor with no bitter tannins. A great sweeter red that is a big seller here. Many folks feel its the only red wine for them! (behind by 13 bottles)

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #4 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 2 bottles)

Fun New Arrivals

  • Gewurz

    Gewurz

    A CA Gewurztraminer crafted in the style of those from the Alps. Great crisp minerality, rose petal and lychee notes, with bright acidity to hold it together. All organic from the rugged and cooler Potter Valley in Mendocino. Try with grilled chicken or pork chops to see what a great food wine this is!

  • Amon Ra

    Amon Ra

    The 2014 Amon Ra reflects the tried and true essence of the Glaetzer style - generosity of flavor with finesse of structure. The inky purple color displays the gentle but full extraction. The nose shows an abundance of dark blueberry, vanilla, black cherry and hints of cassis with notes of mixed spice and anise. Although still young and firmly wound, the vibrant blackberry and dried spice flavors integrate well with youthful yet supple tannins with the trademark loooong and sleek finish. Meant to go 10 to 15 years to hit its prime.

  • 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.

  • Obsidian Cab

    Obsidian Cab

    A wonderful classic CA Cab with solid structure from the altitude and Hungarian oak. Reserved and dark on the nose with aromas of blackberries, hints of black licorice and coffee. Really nice and elegant. Touch on the masculine side with no jammy, jelly jar junk here. Wonderfully different.
