JAMES BARLOW’S ‘THE STEALS OF THE MONTH’ FOR JUNE 2014

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

The crazy heat has kicked in and I am excited to offer you all these awesome value wines that are a perfect remedy for the dog days of summer.  I am an avid fan of Dry Rose and you will find a steady influx of new Rose’s to try during the next several months.  A good friend of mine has begun calling this time of the year ‘The Summer of Riesling’ and I am inclined to agree with him.  Riesling is a perfect compliment to the Hot Houston Heat!  I will be out of pocket for the next month and therefore not posting any blogs in July, so I made sure to pick some stellar selections this month to tide you over into next month!

Real de Aragon Garnacha 2011

Calatayud, Spain

Cash Price $9.99

Spain’s famous indigenous grape produced by a family owned winery.  Thick red cherries and plum with oak.  Silky tannins and integrated acids with a power packed punch of fruit.

Yalumba ‘Y’ Series Riesling 2012

Barossa Valley, Australia

Cash Price $9.99

Dry Riesling.  Zesty acids paired with fleshy fruits of Fuji apples and orange blossom.  Wet rock minerality combines with papaya, mango and honeydew.  Truly delicious white!

Cruz de Piedra Garnacha Rose 2012

Calatayud, Spain

Cash price $7.99

Freshly picked Strawberry and raspberry are encompassed by candied red apples.  Light, clean acids.  Dry Rose. Perfect Poolside Slurper!

Thank you,

    Thanks for adding me to your list. I would be content to know as much about wine as you have forgotten about wine.
