Mexico


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.



Discreto Encanto Discreto Encanto $18.00

After years of making wine just to distill, Mexico's cool Guadaloupe Valley on the Baja has used temperatiure controlled fermentation to start making some serious wines! This blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Chenin Blanc shows notes of kiwi, pink grapefruit, baked apples with lilting aromas of smoke and stone.



Arette Reposado 1L Arette Reposado 1L $26.00

Obviously not made with the attention of the Suave line but sometimes that's not a big deal. Sometimes you just need tequila, and you need it now but you also want a bit of oak so you don't choke. Here's your 1L bottle of angry love when you don't feel like being a hipster.



Fortaleza Tequila Fortaleza Tequila $46.00

With a lineage dating back to the first to export Tequila to the U.S. comes the most amazing blanco yet. Cooked in stone ovens, crushed by stone, and fermented in wooden vats, water from a local spring in Tequila Valley, this is Tequila like it was and like it should be. Remarkable body and rich flavors, hide this from all but your best of friends.



Arette Suave Reposado Arette Suave Reposado $46.00

Tequila that rests in American White Oak barrels for 11 months, where it gets its smooth aromas of soft caramel, smoke and faint woody character. Some bright citrus notes on the palate with a clean tight finish.

    #2 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. (behind by 11 bottles)

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #3 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. (behind by 1 bottles)

    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 15 bottles)

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Gotes del Priorat

    Gotes del Priorat

    A slightly different and wonderful lighter take on Priorat. The gorgeous blue slate show immediately on the nose, Carignan is there but with richness and elegance. Really pretty and an homage to the fruit. Gorgeous leather and blue black fruit flavors with spice and soft leather. Organic, hand picked and just 9 months in French, this really is a lovely wine!
