April/May Sage Selection Bag
Botromagno Rosé di Lulu
A very distinctive terroir, consisting of sandy soils of extremely low fertility; the vines must suffer to survive here, and they yield clusters that are few but extraordinarily rich. Rosé di Lulu, a deep pink in appearance, is firmly structured and with an unmistakable personality, one of the iconic wines of Puglia, the region that was first to achieve international success for this difficult to make wine style.
100% Nero di Troia
Appearance: A luminous, light pink.
Bouquet: Complex and full fruited, with nuances of liqueur cherries and mulberries.
Palate: Rich, alluring, multi-layered.
Salami, medium-aged cheeses, lamb stews.
Grape Abduction Company Rosé NEW
Grape: Žametna Črnina
Darker pink color bursting with notes of ripe wild berries, wild strawberries, and a hint of violet. On the palate, the wine is round, fruity, with a refreshing acidity after the mid-palate that carries the red fruit aromas to a long and smooth finish. Enjoy on any hot day (or not), on any occasion, by itself or with light fare.
Casa Bollen Sauvignon Blanc
Fresh, light, dry, and lively—this wine is as delicious and refreshing as it is elegant! Born of the gravely, mineral-rich soil of the Leyda Valley, this wine is everything we love about Chilean Sauvignon Blanc. Expressive with light tropical fruits of pink grapefruit, pineapple, and a hint of lime, this wine has a light body with a lengthy, mouth-watering finish. Perfect for warm evenings with friends or sunny days in the park, it’s a friendly wine that goes along well with a variety of foods and festivities!
Aslina Chardonnay NEW
A deep, robust Chardonnay with notes of honey on the nose. The partial wooding gives this wine a unique edge while highlighting the stunning tropical fruit and limy character. On the palate, this Chardonnay offers a lingering finish and a mild buttery flavor, with undertones of vanilla and honeybush tea.
Ca'Viola Dolcetto d'Alba
The color is a very intense ruby-purple red. The nose expresses a complex floral and fruity bouquet, with notes of fresh hay, violets, currants and black cherry in the foreground. The mouth entry is firm and denotes excellent body, which is never at the expense of drinkability. Long and harmonious on the finish reminiscent of fruit.
*Open at least 30 minutes prior to serving*
Charles & Charles "Daisy" Cabernet Sauvignon
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah
Varietals fermented with native yeast. Wines were combined into older barrels for 9 months. Blackberries, violets, cassis, tobacco, and forest floor dominate this full-bodied majority Cabernet Sauvignon wine, with a purity and balance between decadence and structure.
Dr. von Bassermann-Jordan "La Vie" Rosé NEW
Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
A selection of vineyards and three red varieties are chosen for this aromatic and vibrant rosé. The grapes are chilled immediately after harvest to avoid oxidation and ripeness. This wine initially drinks very fruit-forward before mellowing to an almost savory finish. A robust rosé for the colder months and a beautiful dark pink hue for Valentine's Day.
Vaiven Blanc de Noir
This is a memorable new take on Tempranillo, the nobel grape of Spain. What started as a whim in a spare tank and has turned into one of our most popular wines.
Bright yellow color with pearly iridescence at first sight. Red berry and passion fruit notes. Medium bodied and balanced, with a refreshing acidity.
This is a great wine for people who usually drink reds and want to get into whites, and its fuller body is nice this time of year. Biodynamic agriculture.
Les Garrigues Côtes du Rhône
60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault
Named after the beautifully aromatic underbrush and scrub found all over the South of France, Les Garrigues is a delicious Cotes-du-Rhone bottled exclusively for Skurnik Wines. It is produced by a single, small domaine in the Cotes-du-Rhone appellation, and bottled according to our preferences. A blend of predominantly Grenache, Les Garrigues is always balanced, with juicy ripe fruit—never over-ripe, over-done, or overly alcoholic (a trait that sometimes mars wines entry level wines from this appellation). This is an honestly made, textured Côtes du Rhône that is wallet friendly. Fermented and aged in 50% cement, 50% stainless steel
JoMa Halligalli NEW
Natural wine with little intervention--unfined and unfiltered, so appropriate for vegans. Fruit-forward and supple, this is an unusual, but very approachable example of the variety.
Ixsir Altitudes Red NEW
35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Caladoc, 22% Syrah, 17% Tempranillo

The vision behind IXSIR is to reveal the best terroirs of Lebanon, some forgotten long since. Cultivated with respect to sustainable agriculture, IXSIR’s vineyards are spread in the mountains of Lebanon on clay-calcareous and limestone soil, from Batroun to Jezzine, benefiting from the unique microclimates Lebanon has to offer.
IXSIR’s vineyards culminate at an altitude of 1,800m, making them one of the highest in the Northern Hemisphere.

Charles & Charles Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 (Regular Bag) NEW
The Cabernet Sauvignon was de-stemmed and then fermented with native yeast, followed by the wine being on its skins for 35 days (fermentation being about half that time). We had access to some beautiful Goose Mountain Syrah that we thought would add complexity and spice. We fermented the Syrah with native yeast and whole cluster and blended it together with the Cabernet Sauvignon right before we blended and moved all the wine to old barrels. In the barrels, we were looking to soften and concentrate, not to add toast and vanilla thus the choice of used neutral barrels. The resulting wine has intense black currant, espresso, black olive, and dusty herbs with broad shouldered structure.

whole berries with temperature control. Charming bright red color, with red berries aroma, tannic and structured, honest in the mouth, ending with a mineral note. It can be called a Beaujolais-Villages fit for ageing. To drink within 3 years. This is a character-rich, expressive Gamay from just outside of Beaujolais’ band of “cru” villages.

Sage Selection Bag 10.22
Bodega DiamAndes Rosado
Uco Valley, Argentina
You don't see many 100% Malbec rosés in the market, so this is a novel wine. It has strawberry and mild citrus notes and quite a bit of structure on the palate; this is a rosé to pair with food, rather than to be enjoyed merely as an aperitif. It has enough character to stand up to BBQ, red meats, or fattier vegetarian dishes. Vegan-friendly wine.

An easy drinking, everyday wine composed of Sangiovese (85%),
Canaiolo, Mammolo and Merlot. Part of this wine is matured in 300-liter American oak “tonneaux." Vintage 2021 has been characterized, once again, by intense climatic phenomenon such as frost and drought. Its wines are proposing a robust and intense experience.

Rapel Valley, Chile
This wine shows an attractive bright violet color. In its aroma ripe plums and confit figs mingle with a touch of mocha and tobacco.

Supple tannins allow this wide array of flavors to enliven and excite the mid palate and then linger on the finish.
