James Barlow’s ‘Steals of the Month’ for July 2017

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are in the middle of the ‘dog days’ of summer.  It is HOT,HOT, HOT!  Here are several deliciously fun wines that are built for easy drinking through the scorching Houston weather.  Enjoy!

Particular ‘Old Vine’ Garnacha 2013

Carinena, Spain

Cash Price $8.99

Garnacha is built for hot weather.  Fleshy and fruity, this wine offers focused blackberry and black raspberry with minimum acids, tannins and maximum fruit. Un-oaked. James Score: 89 Points

Domaine de Pouy White Blend 2015

Cotes de Gascogne, France

Cash Price $9.99

A blend of Ugni Blanc and Colombard, this wine is built for the searing heat.  Light, fresh, and un-oaked, the wine offers citrus notes with touches of pear and lemon lime zest.  Low alcohol.  Excellent daily white wine.  James Score: 89 Points

Le Versant Grenache Rose 2016

Vins de Pay’s D’Oc, France

Cash Price $7.99

These wines always over-achieve for the price.  This Grenache based Rose is a STEAL!  Light and fruit forward, the wine offers flavors of strawberry and red cherries with medium acidity.  Clean and to the point, this wine is exactly what is in my glass this time of year.  James Score: 89 Points

Thank you,

James C. Barlow, CWE, CSS
