This wine is for the lovers of rich, fuller-bodied whites. I love the concentrated flavors you get from these 60 year-old, ungrafted Semillon vines. Mendel farms without pesticides or fertilizers and uses 100% indigenous yeasts, and they are in the process of getting organic certification for this Altamira vineyard. The high elevation of the vineyard, at 3,600ft, helps maintain a nice freshness in the wine, balanced by the creamy texture of the Semillon and the 15% new French oak used in the élevage. The nose is a mix of dried apricot, Meyer lemon, and dry hay, and the palate shows off the terroir of Altamira with a stony, salty minerality. Michelle DeWyngaert
Pedro Parra is champion of terroir. After getting a PhD in the subject and consulting for some of biggest names in wine-making worldwide, he began this project with his family in their homeland, Itata, Chile. The 'Imaginador' is a unique Cinsault from 70-80 year old head-trained vines, but because of the more than 200 year history of this vineyard, there are smatterings of Muscat, Semillon, Carignan, and País planted throughout that make their way into the blend. Pedro purposefully sought out pockets of granite for the vineyards he works with because of the structure it gives to the wines. The nose has a deep intensity of ripe red and black cherry and a touch of barnyard in the best way. The palate is fresh and focused, with the granite coming through clearly in the finish.

Tikal is a true labor of love for the Catena family of Mendoza, Argentina; an effort to create a thriving biodynamic winery paying homage to the ancient Mayan and Incan gods of the Sun and Earth in their design and in the blends of their wine. The 'Amorio' is 100% Malbec from ~44 year old, ungrafted vines in the Paraje Altamira region of the Uco Valley. The wine is fermented in concrete with native yeasts, aged in 60% new oak and then bottled unfined and unfiltered adding to the rich, unctuous texture of the wine. Displaying notes of stewed raspberry and plum layered with nutmeg and coffee grounds. This will be an excellent pairing for brisket, rack of lamb, and other intensely flavored dishes.

This is a juicy, 100% Garnacha from a single vineyard in the Valle de Uco of Argentina. Ver Sacrum is a collaboration that began in 2012 focusing on Rhone varietals with low-intervention approach to wine-making. Nothing is added, the grapes are mostly foot-stomped, no pump-overs, stirring, or filtration; just letting the grapes speak for themselves and the terroir of their Los Chacayes Vineyard. Roughly 25% whole cluster berries are used and then aged in half concrete eggs, and half used French barrels.Light-bodied with notes of juicy red cherry and red apple, enjoy this with a chill!

"Pipeno" actually translates to barrel, but in this case it refers to an old tradition of making large barrels of juicy, quaffable wine for everyday drinking, and this wine is a perfect example. This wine is 80% Pais and 20% Carignane from 120-year-old vines. I would describe this as a cheerful wine; full of juicy red fruits, tart cranberry, hardly any tannin or extraction, and just enough body. Serve this chilled and happily enjoy a glass or two with or without food, but definitely with friends. Michelle DeWyngaert
This wine speaks herbal volumes, tasting as only a wine could taste coming from the Itata Valley's xeric Matorral scrubland. A blend of País, brought by the conquistadors for use in the Catholic Sacrament in New Spain, and Cinsault, planted after an historic earthquake in 1939. Chile has yet to be scourged by phylloxera, and the young vines in Itata are those bush-trained Cinsault vines that are 80 years old. The País vines have some of them lived for centuries, delving deeply into the firm granitic bedrock that provides these wines their funky grip, their texture of serenity. Bright and soft, with light, silky tannins and lush minerality, this wine has a mouthwatering herbal character, somewhere between rosemary and mint, with a dash of finely-fluted pomegranate red fruit character. These vines are all dry-farmed and sustainably grown, the wines spontaneously-fermented, basket-pressed, and delicious! Andrew Farquhar
