WOW: Let "Tenshen" Build (in your cellar)!

WOW: Wine of the Week

Let "Tenshen" Build (in your cellar)!

Chandon Nautical Summer
If ever there was an appropriate time to have "Tenshən" in one's life - this is the kind of "Tenshən" that is appropriate!  Now, is pleased to have both of the new vintages in stock for both the Tenshen White and Red Blends.  These wines are available in limited quantities - place your order TODAY!

Allow this Tenshən by Joey Tensley and Alex Guarachi to ease the real tension created by the holidays - and ENJOY!

Product Description

A collaboration between Alex Guarachi and Joey Tensley, tenshən white is a masterful expression of white Rhône varietals from Santa Barbara County AVA.  Tenshen is a play on words that nods to winemakers Joey Tensley and Alex Guarachi’s winemaking acumen and the tension that occurs when harvesting. Tenshen’s thought provoking Rhône blends are tenacious and alluring. The reds exhibit brooding dark fruit that is accented by Santa Barbara spice and completed by a mouthwatering finish.

Tensley "Tenshen" White Blend 2014 Tasting Notes

Aromas of tangerine and ripe melon lead to flavors of peach and apricot. Balanced acidity and juicy honeysuckle accent the finish with a hint of hazelnut.

Tensley "Tenshen" Red Blend 2014 Tasting Notes

Dark cherry, white pepper and spring floral aromas blend with dense blackberry flavors, sweet tannins and a juicy finish.  A Rhone sytle blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mouvedre, Petite Sirah and Merlot.

Stay tuned for Uncorked Holiday Boxes to be announced after the holiday.

In observance of the Thanksgiving Holiday, Tuesday, November 24th will be the last day for shipping.  Uncorked will be closed on Thursday, November 26th and Friday, November 27th.

WOW: Pom-Poms for Pomerol!

WOW: Wine of the Week

Pom-Poms for Pomerol!

Chandon Nautical Summer
This wine WILL make you stand up and cheer for Pomerol!  Clos Sainte-Anne is proof positive that there IS value in Pomerol!

Product Description

"Clos Saint Anne is the second wine of Château Moulinet.  It is 2km from the heart of Pomerol, on the route used by pilgrims on their way to Saint James of Compostela, than Château Moulinet is established, in the middle of its greenery frame. Its history is narrowly linked to the history of Pomerol, because it is one of the oldest estates in the area and also one of the largest.  In 1971, Armand Moueix took over the property. Since 2004, it has undergone unprecedented refurbishment both outside in the vines and inside in the cellars, including of course the vathouse. Here, the latest innovations blend with ancestral techniques, combining tradition and innovation. A straightforward and classic Pomerol wine, made by temperature-controlled fermentation followed by 12 months in oak barrels." - Winery Notes

Clos Sainte-Anne Pomerol 2010 Tasting Notes

This vintage reveals a beautiful deep purple colour. The bouquet develops ripe red fruits scents with light vanilla hints. The palate like the nose, expresses red fruits flavours enhanced by a round structure and giving way to an elegant finish.

Clos Sainte-Anne Pomerol 2010 Pairings

Bottled unfiltered, so best to decant before serving, with a hearty beef casserole.

WOW: John Anthony Vineyards

WOW: Wine of the Week

John Anthony Vineyards

Chandon Nautical Summer
The Truchard family is VERY well known in California - their involvement in the wine industry began in 1887.  Since their debut in Texas (yes, Texas) making wine - the family has amassed over 400 acres of which 280 acres are planted.  It is no surprise that John Anthony (Truchard) would also continue in this family business.

Product Description

"John Anthony Vineyards was destine to become a reality. From early on in his life, John Anthony Truchard walked vineyard rows, brushed dirt from his knees, and picked grape skins from his fingernails. He was meant to create handcrafted wines while focusing on growing the best fruit possible. He knew he wanted to do it differently. Gone were the days of purchasing a forty acre estate, building a winery, and planting vines. He instead would lease select land, evaluate soils and microclimates, and plant only what would strive in the choice locations.
Today John and Michele Truchard own and operate this successful brand. They feature small vineyard sites from the Oak Knoll District, Carneros and Coombsville regions, and showcase their wines in the downtown Napa tasting lounge. They manage a small team of dedicated team members and push them to create something special with each and every client interaction. John and Michele have redefined the traditional Napa Valley experience with the introduction of custom vineyard tours, late night tastings, and an incredible line up of events." - Winery Notes

John Anthony Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Tasting Notes

The 2013 John Anthony Sauvignon Blanc is sourced only from vineyards I planted and farm here in the Napa Valley.  Fermented primarily in stainless steel and likely one of the last Sauvignon Blancs harvested in the Napa Valley the wine exhibits the classic ripe melon and tropical flavors you have come to love.

WOW: "MARCO?" - Malbec...!

WOW: Wine of the Week

"MARCO?" - Malbec...!

Chandon Nautical Summer
No longer can hide this PHENOMENAL wine!  The 2013 is back with a 92-point rating from Wine Spectator and is priced competitively to find it's way into your home!

Product Description

"In 1999 Susana Balbo crafted a line of wines to showcase the ripe fruit expression of her sustainably-farmed Mendoza vineyards. The philosophy is a simple one: grow great grapes and make wines that are true to their place. Minimal intervention during the growing season and through harvest allows the true fruit character to develop. Combine this with Susana's winemaking skills and the result is wines that express the powerful fruit flavors, the ripe tannins and the incredible length and balance that can only come from this one place: Mendoza." - Winery Notes

Ben Marco Malbec 2013 Reviews

"A balanced and refined red with blueberry, blackberry and hints of cloves. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink or hold." - 92, Wine Spectator

Ben Marco Malbec 2013 Tasting Notes

Beautiful deep purple color with perfumed aromas of ripe red fruits and roasted coffee beans. It is lush, full-bodied and penetrating on the palate with loads of chewy, currant jam flavors, bright acidity, and a touch of grip on the almost savory finish. This wine really unfolds with some air so try not to slurp it down in a rush, and it shows why the Argentine people are in love with Malbec. Some Bonarda was blended in for greater complexity and to achieve better balance.

Ben Marco Malbec 2013 Pairings

Pairs well with a wide range of foods including beef, sausages, spiced or grilled pork, veal, medium-strong cheeses, and meat-based pasta sauces.
