The 5 Distinctively Delicious Wines that Made Me Say "Whoa" ...

Domaine des Tines Saint Amour, Beaujolais, France

This is "Cru" Beaujolais, a far cry from that nouveau crap which unfairly gives this region a bad rap.  We recommend a Pinot glass for your sniffing and sipping, and rich proteins like grilled sausages or rotisserie chicken as food partners.

 

"Tour Rain" from Oregon's Rogue Valley, a crazy cool Gamay / Cabernet Franc combination.

Yeah, you read right:  An Oregon red NOT from the Willamette Valley, NOT made from Pinot Noir, and NOT a thin, insipid wimp.  - Nor is this a "big" red, but it's huge in aromatic expression, and the first of its kind I've ever bought for the store.  I took the risk.  Will you?!

    

Monje Tradicional from Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain.  Born on a volcano, and screams so.

Hoo boy, did I over-buy?  So enamored was I with this expressive, volcano-derived red that I bought the last 100 bottles available in the United States.  What a startling nose!  Please prepare this wine with a 15-minute refrigeration.  It will love charcuterie - especially Spanish chorizo or Jamon Serrano! 

 

Eric Kent "Kalen's" Syrah from Sonoma County - Dark and decadent, with tons of intrigue.

I admire this thoughtful producer and what they do with an expressive and all-too-often walked-by variety, Syrah.  We brave wine warriors will NOT walk by but directly address this deserving grape!!   

 

The brand new vintage of DeLille 'D2' Bordeaux-style red blend from Washington State.

The inhabitant of many a TWS Red Collector Club pack over the years, here is its latest and well-rated rendition, the 2017 I tasted just last week.  Washington State delivers a lot of kinds of wine greatness.  DeLille is a consistent deliverer of quality from there.  This wine is for now and for ten years from now.

 

Variety, complexity, and a word or two from this wine lover, including "Whoa!"
