    DEPOT DEAL: huge discount on a 90 point Spanish red

    Last updated 21 hours ago

    This is the kind of deal that I know quite a few of you love.  We've been selling Evodia for several vintages now.  We usually have a sale price on it, and it does quite well.  It has always been a lot of wine for a little money.  Now we've got the new vintage, highly rated, at a deeper discount than ever before.  This is a big wine, great for those who like a lot of flavor in a soft, easy-drinking red.  Check out the reviews:
     
     
    "(100% garnacha; no oak): Vivid purple. Powerful aromas of blueberry, blackberry, woodsmoke and Indian spices. Displays supple, open-knit flavors of smoky dark berries, bitter chocolate and candied flowers. Seductive right now, with a sweet floral pastille element carrying through a long, smoky, tannin-free finish. An amazing value."

    "An Eric Solomon custom cuvee, the 2012 Evodia is 100% Grenache from a vineyard planted at more than 2,000 feet in pure decomposed slate soils. Some of the Grenache vines are over 100 years of age. The wine exhibits good density, plenty of richness, not the complexity or ethereal qualities of several of his other custom cuvees, but beautiful fruit, a luscious texture and a hedonistic mouthfeel as well as finish. Enjoy this remarkable value over the next 2-3 years."

    DEPOT DEAL: serious Napa red for a not-so-serious price

    Last updated 13 days ago

    Cameron Hughes has done it again.  He has put out a wine of very high quality from a prestigious, small, expensive area which costs far less than most of its peers.  We're so excited about this particular release that we bought 41 of the 47 cases available in Massachusetts!  So, supply is limited to that, and there will be no more once it's gone.  On the plus side, we'll be one of the only places selling the wine, and we've got a low sale price to offer.

    First, a bit about where it's from. Atlas Peak is a small, high elevation sub-region of the Napa Valley.  With only a little over 3% of Napa's total planted vineyard area, this is a place that takes the consistency and exclusivity of the larger area (Napa) to an even greater extreme.  This Meritage (Bordeaux-style blend) shows the class of wines coming from Atlas Peak without carrying the typical price tag.

    The most important thing is how the wine tastes.  There are no professional reviews that I can find, so I will offer my own tasting note:

    The nose features luscious aromas of plum, black cherry, black currant, cedar, mocha, and subtle eucalyptus.  The first thing evident on first sip is the silky texture that caresses the palate.  There is an elegance to this wine, but still plenty of concentration.  The aromatic components all carry through and evolve into a complete finish that slowly fades away.

    Here's the wine:

    Atlas Peak, Napa Valley, CA

    Regular Price: $17.99

    D&L Sale Price: $13.99

    The wine is in stock at all locations. Feel free to stop by and pick some up.  Thanks for reading!

    WINE OF THE WEEK: discounted 90 point Spanish red

    Last updated 20 days ago

    This wine has already found some fans with the past couple of vintages.  The new vintage is even better, has a very positive review, and we're selling it for less money.

    Here's the review from Josh Raynolds of International Wine Cellar:


    "Brilliant ruby.  Lively red berry and Asian spice aromas are deepened by notes of mocha and licorice.  Taut and linear on entry, then fleshier in the middle, offering fresh raspberry and cherry compote flavors and a touch of succulent herbs.  Shows very good energy and focus, finishing with lingering spiciness and a note of tangy berry skin."

    90 points - IWC

    And the wine:

    2012 Can Blau

    Montsant, Spain

    Regular Price: $17.99

    D&L Sale Price: $14.99

    DEPOT DEAL: 90 point Italian red $9.99

    Last updated 29 days ago

     This red from Southern Italy was already a great value at regular price.  Now the new vintage has gotten some strong press, and we've got an even better price on it.  This one's good for one week only.

     Here's what International Wine Cellar:

    "Good full ruby-red.  Dark cherry and graphite aromas are lifted by an enticing spicy character.  Supple, spicy and sweet, offering an uncanny combination of vibrancy, fat and density.  Finishes suave and long, with fine, sweet tannins and very good lift." 90 points IWC

    And the wine:

    2010 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva, Puglia, Italy

    Regular Price: $12.99

    D&L Sale Price: $9.99 

    The wine is in stock at both Waltham locations. Please call to reserve yours today! River Street 781-894-1907/ Lexington Street 781-894-1999 or email leahdion@dandlwine.com
