Nik Weis St. Urbans-Hof Wiltinger Kabinett 2018

92 points - Wine Enthusiast

"Whiffs of pristine yellow peach mingle into petrichor and smoke on the nose here. Just a shade off-dry, it's a lip-smacking, spine-tingling Kabinett that juxtaposes zesty peach and pineapple flavors against complex nuances of pollen, dust and slate. The finish is long and intensely mineral. Drinks beutifully now but should hold through 2030."

Single Post Riesling 2019

89 points - Wine Enthusiast

"Aromatic white peach and honeysuckle extend from nose to finish in this pretty, easy-drinking Riesling. Its subtle, balanced sweetness make it a universally approachable sip, but it's elegant, too, offering concentrated white grapefruit flavors framed by a lingering, steely finish."

joins the HB Wine Merchants family
Château Curton La Perrière 2019

Introducing a new item to the HB Wine Merchants family available to order now!
Château Curton La Perrière 2019 is 100% merlot from Bordeaux. This cuvée is made from a selection of the best clay-limestone plots on the estate. Combining tradition, respect for the environment and innovation, winemaker Jérôme Falgueyret has created an elegant Bordeaux filled with heart and soul.

90 points from James Suckling
This wine is a deep and brilliant ruby red color with bright red fruit notes on the nose. The palate is beautifully intense with lots of volume, dark cherry and chocolate flavors and supported by very round tannins. A true classic at an affordable price!

Pinot Grigio 2019 featured in
The Washington Post 10/30/2020

Dave McIntyre: "There are wines for every mood. This week's great value is an exhilerating pinot grigio from the mountains of northern Italy. Peter Zemmer also makes a compelling chardonnay."
