The Orca is a new addition from the Ventoux region in the Southeastern corner of the Rhone Valley. It showcases the classic varietals of this region, mainly Grenache with just a bit of Syrah. This one is brought to us from Marrenon, a co-op of nearly 1200 wine-growers managing nearly 20,000 acres between the Luberon and Ventoux regions. This red is very complex. The fresh blackcurrent and raspberry flavors stand out, but are backed up with some earthy tobacco and spice. - $1.50 Sample
2015 Chateau Haut Barrail Medoc Rouge – Bordeaux, France; $22.99
Located in Bégadan in the northernmost section of Médoc in Bordeaux. Chateau Haut Barrail sits on the 5 hectares of calcareous clay soils gently sloping into the right bank of the Gironde River. Now in its 7th consecutive century producing quality wine on the left bank of Bordeaux, Chateau Haut Barrail was established in 1362. The only remnant of the original property is the windmill that has been restored time and time again over the centuries. The property’s chateau was constructed in the 18th century and remains well cared for to this day. The current proprietors at Haut Barrail are the Gillet family, headed up by Cyril Gillet; he purchased the land in 1987 and overhauled the winery. Their first vintage was 1995.
A blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged a little over a year in about 80% new French oak barrels. This classic Bordeaux can clearly stand up to a few more years of aging. Juicy black currants, blackberries and cassis with a little smokiness in the finish. - $1.50 Sample
