Zorzal Eggo – Newly Arrived

Zorzal Eggo Tinto de Tiza, Tupungato, Argentina 2013 750ML ($49.95) $39 special
Wine Advocate 95 points “The 2013 Eggo Tinto de Tiza fermented in cement eggs and matured on the skins for six months. It’s mostly Malbec with 8-10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from Gualtallary. This wine was first produced in 2012, from grapes grown on more calcareous parts of the vineyard. The wine is pure, mineral, subtle, elegant and harmonious. The palate is electric with a purity of flavors, great freshness and length that has a chalky minerality amplified by the freshness of the year.… Read the rest

This Week’s Top Ten
Epic Staff Picks

Cameron Clos Electrique Blanc, Dundee Hills 2013 750ML ($81.95) $66 special, 25 bottles available
Why we love it: Complexity and charm – honeysuckle, citrus, tarragon, and honey cover the palate while remaining lively and buoyant. Layered and energetic, maintaining a balance between force and elegance. Mr. Paul swung for the fences here! – Tyler
Winemaker’s note: “Clos Electrique is farmed organically which means that we use elemental sulfur during the growing season to prevent growth of powdery mildew and use copper hydroxide and leaf removal in the vicinity of grape clusters to inhibit botrytis.… Read the rest

All the wine was aged in neutral wood, which shines a light on the beautiful fruit, with green apple, almonds, and hints of butter and vanilla.”

Silver Oak Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 2011 750ML ($119.95) $99 pre-arrival special, ETA February 5th
“Our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant representation of Napa Valley Cabernet from a cool vintage. It presents an opaque garnet hue in the glass and reveals aromas of sandalwood and roasted meats. Flavors of vanilla, coffee beans and raspberries are buttressed by dusty tannins, firm acidity and a mouth-coating texture. Given proper cellaring, this wine should provide drinking pleasure through 2029.” -Winery Notes
