New Top Ten Wines for February!

New Top Ten Wines for February!

Ten great new wines, fresh on our shelves! 1) Underwood Rose 375ml Cans $6.99 – Canned wines are exploding! They’re convenient, go anywhere packages that preserve the freshness and flavors of the wine better and more consistently that any other package. Underwood’s new Rose is here and is dangerously drinkable. Fruity strawberry, watermelon and peach flavors balanced by vibrant acidity. Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir also in stock & $6.99 each. 2) Venge 2014 Penny Lane Vineyard Sangiovese $37.99 – Kirk Venge’s 2014 reds are nothing short of extraordinary and his tiny production Sangiovese is no exception. We just received the last handful of bottles of the minuscule amount that was allocated for retail shelves this year. Notes of strawberries, black cherries, new saddle leather, bay leaf, and pepper. Ripe, with excellent fruit, medium body, and no hard edges. 3) Peirano Estate 2015 Illusion Red $12.99 – We’ve almost sold through our first batch of this delicious new wine from the Peirano family, and in record time (but don’t worry, more arriving on Thursday). A juicy blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate explodes with rich mouthfilling blackberries, black currants, plums and dark fruit. The long, seductive finish is filled with hints of black licorice and has firm, round, yet supple mouthfilling tannins. 4) Domaine Houchart 2016 Provence Rose $12.99 – Without a doubt, the Domaine Houchart is one of the best value Provence Roses each year. This family owned estate in the south of France is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and has a pretty soft pink hue. The nose...

Taylor’s Band of Blends Private Label

Taylor’s Band of Blends Private Label

It’s Here! Our newest private label wine has arrived! Taylor’s Wine Shop presents the Band of Blends, 2014 Paso Robles Red Wine Blend, Lot #1 Band of Blends 2014 Paso Robles Red Wine Blend Lot #1 Normal Price: $50-$60, Taylor’s Label: $34.99 The Taylor’s Porch Pounder Pinot is almost gone, and we had so much fun with that first private label wine, we knew we had to do another one. So we turned to our favorite hunter of exceptional wines at incredible prices, The Treasure Hunter himself, Hunter Vogel. A blend of 43% Grenache, 38% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 9% Petite Sirah, this is a bold and spicy blockbuster you won’t believe. Hunter knew that we have loved the Moon Duck Red that he did a couple years ago with Saxum assistant winemaker Mark Adams, so he went in search of another winner from Paso Robles for the Taylor’s wine lovers and came back with this absolute stunner. As usual, Hunter can divulge the original source (otherwise the original winery couldn’t get away with charging premium pricing for their label) but he can say that it’s from a “big name,” mailing list only winery who’s stuff normally isn’t available in NC unless you’re one of the lucky few on their list. He also says that the 2013 version of this wine under the main label got 95 points from the Wine Advocate. Beautiful deep crimson color, offering up notes of black raspberries, cassis, hints of bacon fat, liquid violets and pepper. Full-bodied and concentrated, yet showing surprising finesse with a silky finish that has a beautiful purity of fruit...
