Latest wine deals! 1/19/18

1)  Camigliano Brunello di Montalcino 2012:  $39.99 Special deal price!  Wine Spectator 93 pts.  A firm, elegant and well-defined style, boasting cherry, currant, licorice, leather and spice flavors. Concentrated and long, with a robust, dense finish. Best from 2020 through 2033.

2)  Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Oakville:  $158  The 2015 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon has deep concentrated aromas of chocolate-covered cherries alongside bright floral notes. The entry of this wine is juicy with a silky-smooth texture that builds through the mid-palate. Mouthwatering dark cherry flavors are supported with well-integrated oak. This wine is an excellent balance of lush, mouth-filling tannins and bright, fresh acidity on the finish.

3)  Frank Family Cabernet Sauvignon 2014:  $46  (Cheapest price:  $48.97 with no further discounts)  Wine Spectator 91 pts.  Pure and elegant, with generous, supple plum, cherry and raspberry notes that are supported by fine, ripe tannins that give the flavors traction and length. Drink now through 2028.

4)  World’s End Crossfire Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard 2013, Rutherford:  $89.99  (Suggested retail:  $112)   WE 91 pts. Cellar Selection:  From a tremendous site, Crossfire displays bold, brawny and extracted black fruit, from blackberry to black currant. Polished tannins still need time to mellow, suggesting further time in the cellar, through 2023. A strong streak of brushy sage, cedar and menthol rises midway on the wine, peaking on the finish.

5)  World’s End Wavelength Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard 2009, Napa:  $67.99  WE 92 pts.  This is one of the most successful Syrah-Cabernet Franc blends in California. The Syrah brings blueberry and bacon flavors, and the Cabernet provides the black currant note and the tannic backbone. It’s already delicious to drink, but allow it to breathe in a decanter for one or two hours.

6)  Coup de Foudre 37.2 Cuvee 2014, Napa Valley:  $79.99  The Coup de Foudre 2014 Cuvee 37.2 is comprised of 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Fresh blackberry, raspberry and vanilla bean leap out of the glass as the aromatics. Produced from our Calistoga Estate, this wine was barrel-aged in a combination of Taransaud, Orion, Treuil and Sylvain cooperage for 18 months with 70% new oak. 325 cases produced.

7)  Phelps Sauvignon Blanc 2016:  $39.99  WE 93 pts. Editor’s Choice  This is a consistently delicious wine, fermented in a combination of new and once-used French oak. Fully realized, it has a sublime texture and light body that’s balanced by long, lingering acidity. The fresh-fruit flavors show elements of orange, lime, lemon and peach.

8)  Phelps Freestone Chardonnay 2015, Sonoma Coast:  $39.99  WE 95 pts.  Voluptuously succulent and welcoming, this coastal wine seduces with its caramel apple, pear and preserved lemon flavors, edged with high-toned acidity and an exotic touch of seaspray. That sense of the sea plays out on the palate in texture, too, with a stony note that lingers in nutty spice.

9)  Phelps Insignia 2014:  $224.99  James Suckling 97 pts.  The blackberry, dark-chocolate and walnut aromas are persuasive. Full body, a dense and fruity center palate and beautiful depth and intensity. The tannin texture is exceptional. Great wine. Drink in 2020 and onwards.  87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc.

The lowest prices— even better than the big box stores.

What is Sauer Grapes all about?

I love wine. I love learning about special vintages, discovering new labels, finding gems that no one else knows about, and most of all, I love sharing my knowledge of wine!

At Sauer Grapes, we always have one dry still rose, three sparkling wines:  one Champagne, one rose and one something else, five whites and five reds on the menu—always a $4 glass, $6-9 glass and a $10-14 glass—and the menu changes weekly.  The more expensive glasses are always still very great deals! You can also pick any bottle off the shelf to open.  If you don’t finish it, State law lets you take it home.  There is a $4 corkage but I beat everyones’ prices so you can’t drink cheaper anywhere!. We also offer great craft beers, delicious tapas plates, and a variety of unique specialty foods to take home.

You’ll find I am a huge advocate of Grower Champagne. The Champagne region in France is dominated by a handful of brand names and they produce a mass-market commodity. By contrast, Small Growers, or “récoltant-manipulants,” handcraft their limited quantities of Champagne from individual villages and parcels where the inherent qualities of the vineyards imprint themselves into the wines. These winemakers are brave souls in an industrialized age: growing vinifying and bottling their own Champagne and offering it to the world as their lives’ work.
