Radikon “S” Orange 2010
Pinot Grigio / Fruili, Italy / 92 points

“This wine is wild! 2 weeks on the skins and 1 year in wood. After some decanter time, the fruit gets fresher, offering a bright core of fresh red berries accented by just a little apple cider and lemon/grapefruit. There are also a lot of herbal and spice notes, and a distinct earthiness. It’s kind of like a very light red Burgundy. The palate is quite a ride, with great acidity and some very soft tannin. Overall, this is extremely complex, I love it. outstanding.”

Suggested Plate Pairings:
Squid – Chili Calamari ‘Noodles’ roasted with Chicharones on Cranberry Beans
Anise – Crosnes, Licorice Sunchokes, Fennel, Black and Watermelon Radishes, Sauvignon Blanc Foam

Descendientes De Jose Palacios Petalos 2011
Mencia Grape / Bierzo, Castilla Leon, Spain / 92 points

“…very aromatic and flowery (violets), almost heady, with clear notes of blueberries and licorice. The oak is perfectly integrated, almost imperceptible, a medium body, with a thick silky texture, is very tasty, with some acidic strawberry flavors. This could very well be the best Petalos produced to date.”

Suggested Plate Pairings:
Zin – Grilled Steak with Blue Cheese and Zinfandel drizzle on Toasts
Coxinha – São Paulo style fried Oxtail filled Fritters, Chili Honey Sauce

Bodegas Ordonez Zerran 2011
Garnacha Blend / Montsant, Spain / 91 points

“…reveals abundant kirsch, lavender, black raspberry and dusty, loamy, earthy scents intermixed with notions of spring flowers and blackberries, no oak evident in this dense effort. Its completeness and overall equilibrium are impressive.”

Suggested Plate Pairings:
Porchetta – Roasted Pork Loin stuffed with Fig Rosemary Almond Pesto and Prosciutto
Buffalo Tails – Crisp fried Pigs Tails, spicy Buffalo Sauce
