CHILLED RED ALERT!


moulin.jpgDomaine des Cotes de la Moliere Les Moulin a Vent 2011: Isabelle and Bruno Perraud make this Moulin a Vent and I love it. So much that I bought, oh, 25 cases. The only 25 cases in the country. So if you try it and like it, you’ll either need to visit the Perrauds in France, or visit me. (French winemakers may be charming, but I’m much more convenient!)  It’s one of those wines that shows best with a slight chill (it was the hit of our summertime “Chilled Reds” tasting – and can go for days without losing its tastiness.  Dark berry fruits, mulberry skins, a touch of dusky minerality and texture that manages to be a touch silky and crunchy all at once. (‘Crunchy??’  Yes, crunchy. Think of that snap of freshness when you bite into an apple. That’s crunchy. And it’s a very good thing.)  Pick one up one to try. Give it a good chill. And then come back from more!

Price: $24.99
6-bottle price: $135 ($22.50/bottle)
12-bottle price: $240 ($20/bottle)

IT'S BACK!


lucchetti.jpgLucchetti Lacrima di Morro d'Alba 2012
(Campania, Italy)

One of the most unique reds we’ve come across. The nose is floral: lilacs, lilies, even roses. But take a sip and you’ll also get berries and a bit of earthiness. Best with a bit of a chill, this a love it or hate it wine. But there are enough of you that love it…that are obsessed with it…that we have needed to it as it bounced from distributor to distributor. Sure we’ve had a few other Lacrimas di Morro d’Alba on the shelf, and they have a similar, wacky-unique profile, but this is THE ONE. The one that brings on longing and lust and whining and crying whenever it’s not available. It’s been about a year since it was available… and it has been a long year. But it’s back. And on the shelf. So come and get it all you Lucchetti-lovers, because we can’t promise how long it will stick around.

Price: $16.99

 
 
 

ROSE BY THE CASE. THE LOGICAL THING TO DO.


gobelsberger.jpg‘Tis the time to drink rose. (OK, we think it’s ALWAYS the time to drink rose, but in the heat of the summer, it’s especially hard to resist.) And while we’ve loved rose for always, this summer, everyone has decided to agree that the pink stuff is a-ok. This is the year that it’s really hit the big time.

So chances are, you’re also seeing more rose this year. And drinking more. And taking more to parties and BBQs and vacations.  Make your life easy. Save yourself a few trips to the store (not that we don’t love to see you) and just BUY A CASE! It’s easy math.

First, you’ll save time. You’ll always have a bottle on hand. Last minute BBQ invitation?  Grab a bottle. The in-laws pop by? Pop open a bottle. Playdate filled with screaming 3 year olds? Pop open a

bottle (or three). Forgot the wine store doesn’t open at 6AM, before you have to take off for the weekend? No worries…  Starting to see the logic?

Second, you’ll save money. We’re offering the Gobelesberger Rose Cistercien 2013 our favorite, top-selling rose for $160.73/case (that’s a straight $175 including sales tax.) Just a little over $13/bottle, vs. the regular $15.99.  It’s dry, with subtle fruit, similar to a Provencal rose but a little fresher and zippier – like air-conditioning in a bottle. And who couldn’t use a little liquid air-conditioning.

Save time. Save money. Totally, completely logical.

Gobelsburger Rose Cistercien 2013 (Austria)
$175/case (including sales tax)

Offer available from now until it’s gone (which according to our best estimates will be, um, August 8th. At 3.30PM. Or something like that.) If the discounted price does not appear in your cart, don't worry, we will apply it manually!

 
 
 

NEW WAVE CALI: LA CLARINE FARM

ghostface.jpgLa Clarine Farm is not your typical California cult wine. It doesn’t have any big rating points. The wines aren’t models of super-concentrated, uber-velvety, extra ripe tannins (but they are definitely full of flavor, texture and life.) And these bottles sell for well below the usual Cali cult three figure prices. One thing these wines do have in common with the traditional California cult wines? They can be very difficult to get your hands on.

Unless you know where to shop. Which would be here, at Frankly Wines. Because if there are LCF wines to be had, we usually will have them. At least a case or two. And sometimes (like last week) we even had Hank himself.

A bit more background for those who aren’t already LCFanatics: Hank and his wife Caro make these wines on their small farm located in the Sierra Foothills of California. The vines share the land with goats and chickens and Hank works with as little intervention as possible, in the vineyard and the winery. These are wines that taste of where they’re from – and are simply delicious.  And very well priced.

Stock comes and goes pretty quickly, so if you’re curious, we recommend grabbing a few bottles while you can. In stock now:

______________________________________


La Clarine Farm Piedi Grandi 2012 (Sierra Foothills, California):

LCF.jpgThe second vintage of Hank’s nebbiolo-based blend. There’s also some mourvedre and syrah in here. If you expect California to = big, ripe, and HUGELY CONCENTRATED, prepare to be surprised by the elegance and lightness of this wine. But lightness doesn’t mean lack of flavor. You’ll sniff out red fruits, pomegranate, crushed roses, spice, all back up by a sneaky structure and vibrant acidity. Tasty on the 1st day, but if you can keep from finishing a full bottle in one sitting, this wine is spectacular on the second day!

Price: $24.99

 
 
 

Liquid Sunshine Suggestion: Holly's Garden Pinot Noir


Neil Prentice Holly's Garden Pagan Pinot Noir 2011
(Whitlands, Victoria, Australia)

hollys.jpgIt’s time to re-think Australian wine. While there’s still plenty of big, jammy kangaroo-style juice available, there’s a lot of wine diversity over on the other side of the world. And good for us, more and more is making it over here. Like this sunny little bottle of Pinot Noir. It’s light, almost translucent, with just-shy-of-ripe fruit that plays wonderfully with the hint of thyme that you’ll find in many wines from this region. (It’s not actually thyme… it’s a hint of eucalyptus that may actually come from the leaves of the trees that surround the vineyard.) If you’re looking to be surprised by what Australia is doing these days, pick up a bottle. If you’re looking for a bright and fresh chillable red, pick up a bottle. Heck, just pick up a bottle!

Price: $24.99
