2015 Guigal Saint-Joseph Vignes de l’Hospice
On Sale $96.99
Still aging in 100% new oak, the 2015 Saint Joseph Vignes de l’Hospice is rich and concentrated, piled high with blackberries and mulberries, yet savory, with a black olive component as well. It’s full-bodied, layered and complex, with a long, velvety finish. It should prove long-lived for a Saint Joseph.

2015 Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, toscana
On Sale $24.99
A fine-grained and focused red with berry, coffee and spice aromas and flavors. Medium body and a clean finish. Extremely pretty and delicious to drink now.

2013 Le Macchiole “Paleo,” Toscana
On Sale $92.99
Paleo is a pure expression of Cabernet Franc first made in 2001. The 2013 Paleo shows a soft and feminine side with rose petal, lavender, wet earth, rosemary and dark fruit. These are beautiful but unexpected qualities. The wine is ever so reflective of the grape variety, but it also does a great job of incorporating Tuscan ideals, with sunshine, grace and generosity among them. As you dig deeper, Paleo reveals more surprising layers. The finish is soft and slightly sweet. Paleo reveals something new each time you go back to the glass to take a new sip. This wine promises a long aging future.

2016 Decero Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina
On Sale $15.99
The elegant, commercial and approachable 2016 Malbec Remolinos Vineyard has a good combination of ripe fruit and spice, with a polished, soft mouthfeel that makes it approachable. There are some leather aromas that add some complexity. 306,000 bottles produced.

2015 Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
On Sale $51.99
Montelena’s 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is gorgeous. Pliant and supple, the 2015 offers notable density and raciness in an up-front style that will drink well upon release. Succulent red/purplish fruit, spice, new leather and licorice are front and center. A wine of total allure, the 2015 hits all the right spots. Best of all, at $62 a bottle it is one of the best values readers will find in Napa Valley Cabernet. Don’t miss it.
