Lacrimus Rioja Reserva 2015

Top quality Rioja is as delicious, as complex, and as age-worthy as any of the world’s finest Reds. This week we have the pleasure of telling you about a brilliant Rioja from one of our favorite Spanish oenologists, Javier Rodriguez. Javier does what all great winemakers strive to do by creating clean, modern, stylish wines that deliver a sincere expression of the vineyard and vintage from which they came. Our 2015 Rioja Reserva delivers an intense, thought provoking style that was clearly built with hearty meals and long cellaring in mind. The nose begins with a touch of rosy potpourri before progressing into darker tones of anise, pipe tobacco, and warm mixed berry preserves. It is the kind of nose that lures you with an intoxicating perfume that immediately informs you that you are about to drink some pretty bad a$$ Red. The palate is firm and structured with sturdy tannin sitting just beneath all the bold blackberry, black currant, and raspberry preserves. As this Rioja moves onto the finish you’ll notice a touch of oak creeping lending the wine a creamy, modern edge and sleek hints of vanilla and spice. As the wood and tannin fade in between sips the sensation of old vine minerality begins to take hold. Drink this beauty now, after an hour in the decanter, with a hearty meal. Then set a half dozen bottles aside and drink one a year over the next six years. Betcha the last one will be significantly better than the first!

Food Pairing:
A firm Rioja Reserva like this week's special from Javier Rodriguez deserves a good hearty meal to accompany it. I always love to do pork with Tempranillo so why not fire up the grill and throw on a couple of nice double cut bone-in pork chops? Add a nice baked sweet potato and some shredded Brussels sprouts sauteed in bacon fat and you'll be winning for sure!

Les Caves du Commandeur “Divitis” Cotes du Provence Rose 2019

Ten years ago nobody really cared much for dry Provencal Rose. Boy how the times have changed! Nowadays everybody is clamoring for the lush, friendly, sexy Roses from the South of France. The 2019 vintage is only our second from Les Caves du Commandeur but you can be sure it won’t be the last. This Rose is some of the most elegant, refined, and simply drinkable juice in the entire shop. The nose is awash with the scents of fresh cut melons and rose petals. The palate is lush and friendly with a supple, yielding edge that was built with pleasure in mind. Peaches and strawberries tossed in freshly whipped cream meld seamlessly with more subtle hints of blood orange zest, chalky minerality, and a touch of mid-summer English garden. The finish is plush and dry with no hard edges to stop you from tucking right into another sip. This is one of those wines that requires no justification. You thirsty? Open the Divitis? Having some light supper on a warm night? Get some Divitis! Just want to get your classy day drink on when it’s all hot and sticky out? Darn right the Divitis will do! But seriously, folks, whether you’re an old Rose connoisseur or you’re just getting started in the category Les Caves du Commandeur is making some of the most beautiful wine around and you ought to tuck into some because it is going to do you all sorts of right.
Food Pairing:
The fresh berries are really in peak season right now so we’ve been eating them with everything. I can’t think of a much better pairing for the lush 2019 Les Caves du Commandeur “Divitis” Rose than a perfectly light salad of fresh picked mixed greens, sliced almonds, crumbled goat cheese, and fresh strawberries topped with a zesty raspberry vinaigrette. Just typing that is making my mouth water...
