2016 Grandes Serres Cairanne “Carius”

2016 Grandes Serres Cairanne “Carius”

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming… all the way to weekend! Red berries, sapling, peppered cherries, red flowers, and a hint of leather on the nose. Cherries and a hint of blackberries on the palate with wood notes and nice acidity. I’m not sure what else you can ask for at $16 from a protected region in France.

It’s still true that no vessel, once opened, keeps wine as fresh as a box. (Unless you want a whole keg – in which case, get in touch! We got you!) But when it comes to having something handy in the fridge at all times, boxes are very hard to beat. Oxygen is the enemy and the vacuum seal is your friend. We’ve been carrying a wide variety of boxed wine for a long time, and tonight, we’ll be drinking inside the box with Kent Johnson Wine Consultingand Communal Brands – AKA SYNTH-POP GENIUS KENT ODESSA!  It is still August here in the city (as in many places, we hear) and everything will be CHILLED. Our A/C is cranking as always in the Shrine of Wine and of course we’ll have the WINE, BREAD, CHEESE, and VINYL!

Schplïnk, Grüner Veltliner Box 2018

We’ve been big fans of this bright, citrusy Grüner since Kent first brought it through our door.  Beach, park, backyard… The high-acid and mineral background keep it clean no matter what the scene. Easy-pleasy-lemon-squeezy. Is there any good reason not to buy this box in August?  Organic grapes, spontaneous fermentation.  $32

Hérisson, Rosé 2018

Fruit from vineyards around the village of La Sylve in the Herault department of the Languedoc. The aim was to produce a fresh, balanced, and expressive rosé and we think the results will speak for themselves. Oh, and why the hedgehog? They couldn’t resist its utter adorableness, and they love hedgehogs. One person here said “Frickin’ delicious!”  Put on your Bo Jacksons and come on down. Vegan & very chillable.  $30  

Hérisson, Coteaux Bourguignons Rouge 2017

Classic passetoutgrains-style red from Gamay & Pinot Noir, 100% estate fruit from Domaine Rochebin’s vineyards around Mâcon. Nice and easy, medium-bodied, red-fruited. Backyard BBQ, rooftop, gallery opening, or just in the fridge – this box fits like a sharkskin suit! Just ask Candy-O! Vegan and bulletproof!  $34

2016 Chasing Harvest Branco

2016 Chasing Harvest Branco

Reppin’ my home city of Chi-dogo with this product of a wine-making venture based here. This is a Portuguese white that’s quite fab. Lemon, pear, apples, green herbs, tarragon, wet stone, and a whiff of cashews and marzipan on the nose. Lemons and apples on the palate with defined green herb notes, stone, and raw nuts.
