Barolo


Guido Porro Barolo Guido Porro Barolo $48.00

Don't recognize the label? Guido makes beautiful wine but shies from the limelight or even the daylight. Rugged vineyards in Serralunga are where you'll find him, not at festivals or tastings. Lazzairasco is a south facing amphitheater producing dense, powerful ripe fruit with the classic leather, roses and pekoe tea character. Classic styling but drinkable now, although just.



Marengo Bricco Della Viole Barolo Marengo Bricco Della Viole Barolo $49.00

I'm sorry. 65 year old vines, remarkable vintage, and already drinkable. This single-vineyard gem is hedonistic addiction in a bottle. Don't even try to explain what Barolo does to those not in the know, just keep this one to yourself. All it needs is some animal fat in flesh or cheese format and the tears will flow.



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 8 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 18 bottles)

  • Carro Monastrell

    #4 Carro Monastrell

    The higher altitudes of Yecla result in a more aromatic, fresher style, making this wine a very easy sipper. Ripe black fruits, plum, licorice, and a hint of pepper. The gentle tannins balanced perfectly by its acidity, this one you've got to try! (behind by 9 bottles)

Fun New Arrivals

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A.D. Laws Four Grain Straight Bourbon

    A.D. Laws Four Grain Straight Bourbon

    This four grain whiskey uses a blend of rye, wheat and barley sourced from the Colorado Malting Company, and corn from Briess Malting in Wisconsin - encompassing the "mother grains" of bourbon. The whiskey ages about 3 years, all year round to capture the seasonal nuances from the ever-changing Colorado mountain air, in new, 53 gallon charred oak barrels source from Independent Stave Company.

  • Poquito Moscato

    Poquito Moscato

    Lightly sparkling, fruity and sassy, Poquito is small in size but big on taste. Delicate floral aromas combine with a sweet yet refreshing palate of ripe peaches, pears and apricots. Apply liberally at any social occasion. Great right out of the bottle but really amazing with mint and rum as a mojito!
