Arette Blanco 1L Arette Blanco 1L $18.00

Understanding that occasionally budget and a multiple margarita day often requires a more affordable tequila, the fine folks at Arette have crafted this Blanco. Still possesses the bright agave floral notes and the flavor brings a nice agave spice rather than the skunky funk of many others in this price range. Our go-to when we aren't drinking tequila straight.



Arette Reposado 1L Arette Reposado 1L $18.00

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.

    So pretty. Brings a clear nose of Gimblett Gravels terroir beneath lush soft blue and black fruit with lovely violet and lavender notes. Palate is clean, balanced and very approachable. Just a hint of the Northern Rhone's meatiness but mostly bright fruit and enough acidity to hold it in check. Maybe the best NZ Syrah out there??
