Fireside Wines

Who might be invited to sit around the hearth when you open a Fireside Wine?

Loved ones, dear friends, new friends, good neighbors and colleagues. Who is on the DO NOT INVITE list? Old Man Winter, Jack Frost and Krampus! The Wine Sellers’ Fireside Wines are big, bold and cheerful enough to keep winter on the outside looking in.

Trig Point 2021 Merlot Diamond Dust Vineyard ($32.50)

Merlot is back! Bold and concentrated with red fruit, dark chocolate and bacon on the nose. Red plum, red currant, blackberry and spicy clove flavors with a full, round mouthfeel and nice soft tannins. Lots of love given to Trig Point at Bacchus.

Barone Montalto Ammasso 2017 ($38.50)

If there ever was a Fireside Wine, this Sicilian beauty is a shoe-in. Ultra-rich blend of Nero d’Avola, Nerello Mascalese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Velvety and lush, with notes of prunes and black berries. The palate is gently balanced and full-bodied with an Amarone-like finish.

Soléna Estate 2022 Pinot Gris ($26.00)

A classic Pinot Gris, with aromas of peaches, lemon peels and a floral note reminiscent of gardenias. Flavors of peach, ginger, spearmint tea and honey glide along a smooth texture. A longtime favorite of The Wine Sellers. The President of Soléna, Anthony Van Nice, is a pal from Lakeside!

Richard Böcking Riesling Devon 2019 ($29.00)

A treat for my Riesling lovers. A cuvée that is dry, a little racy, well-balanced with pleasant mineral qualities. A slight whiff of petrol followed by juicy lime on the attack. Sparkling acidity with a mouthwatering finish.

Hestan 2017 Chardonnay ($62)

Hestan’s first wine produced by esteemed Napa Valley winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown. An impeccable balance of flavor and structure. Tropical fruits with notes of lemon zest, pineapple, and hazelnut, and a full, round mouthfeel. A whopping 14.1% alcohol, yet so balanced that you hardly feel the sheer weight of it from start to its long, elegant finish. Only 350 cases produced.

Wines to Watch

Bailly Lapierre Crémant de Bourgogne Brut ($27.50)

An elegant alternative to champagne, this “Blanc de Noirs” – a white made mainly from black Pinot Noir grapes – is Bailly Lapierre’s hallmark wine. A Crémant (French sparkling wine made outside the Champagne wine region) of powerful character, full bodied with red berry fruits and crisp acidity.

2021 Chappellet ‘Mountain Cuvee’ Proprietary Red ($62)

The Wine Sellers is pleased to have Napa Valley’s Chappellet once again. 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot, 14% Merlot, 12% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Franc. Aromatic, with notes of red currant, boysenberry, cassis, roasted coffee and dark chocolate, with savory undertones of sweet oak. Rich and mouthcoating on the palate

Ottella 2021 Le Creete ($23.50)

A delicious white wine with an amazing, creamy texture. Exotic notes of pineapple, grapefruit, white blossoms, with delicate minerality. Subtle on the palate, rich with minerality. Offers finesse, yet with a strong character.
