STAFF PICKS TO FIGHT THE CHILL
David's Wine Review :
2015 Mastroberadino Irpina Aglianico 'Redimore' - $25.99
This one's for those of you who like chewy, structured Cabernet or don't mind a young Nebbiolo. If your not familiar with the Aglianico grape, it is a native of Campania in southern Italy and is unique in that it maintains zesty acidity to go along with its deep color and firm tannic backbone even in very hot climates. Mastroberadino is a global champion of this under utilized grape. The 2015 'Redimore' exibits dark berry flavors with hints of coffee, tobacco and vanilla. This wine is rich, concentrated, structured and layered with flavor. It's a perfect companion to meat stews, mature cheese and polar vortices.  
Madison's Wine Review :
2017 Domaine du Pegau "Pink Pegau" Vin de France - $22.99
Fresh watermelon and raspberries with spice and depth, a bit fuller and richer than your average pale pink from the south of France. Pink Pegau comes from a high quality producer with a long family history of vine growing in Chateauneuf du Pape (since 1670). This is the post-polar vortex treat we all need plus a little pink inspiration to look for spring. 
Doug's Wine Review :
2016 Onix Priorat Classic - $25.99
You might remember this wine from our grand tasting in September. It's composed of equal parts hand-harvested Garnacha and Carignan grapes sourced from vineyards encompassing the famous Catalonian village of Gratallops. The long, hot summers in this region create an ideal setting to coax deep, rich flavors from the fruit that manages to survive in this severe climate. It's showcase of dark fruit, earthy intensity and a long finish makes this a great option for the upcoming cold, long nights.  
Patti's Wine Review :
Quinta Seara d'Ordens Fine Ruby Porto - $16.99
This weather requires fortification, something with a little more oomph - that "Uff Da" factor, if you will. Clocking in at 19.5%abv, this densely fruited port has it all. Deep dark fruits are balanced by good structure and acidity. If you like port this is a great value option. Find a fireplace and sip this wine until you feel warm fuzzies on the inside and on the outside.
