Spring Mixed Case
A Fresh Mix of Our Favorites for Spring
BIG SAVINGS: Every Bottle Discounted 20%!
At last: We're officially two days into spring! And now that ridding yourself of that bulky winter coat is beginning to look like a real possibility, it seems like the right time to dive into a fresh mixed case.
This past weekend, I actually spotted some daffodils in bloom - a very reassuring sight after the treacherous winter we've had. Soon enough, the green market will be teeming with dandelion greens, ramps, fiddleheads, asparagus and the like. If you're anything like us, those days cannot come soon enough.
So to kick things off, we've put together a spring mixed case of our favorites for the season - an even split between reds and whites to segue from heartier stews into lighter, brighter salads of real live green things!
As always, the spring mixed case offers the best deal on these wines: every bottle 20% off.
Beginning with the reds, the range spans from the bold and gutsy Fernandez Jumilla Gran Reserva into the light finesse of Castellinuzza's Chianti. There is also Fauterie's St. Joseph, an accessible northern Rhone Syrah with classic dark fruits, herbs and smoky meat notes.
On the white side, one of the most unusual entries is Ricci's Timorasso, a rare indigenous varietal from Piedmont that many believe will prove to be amongst Italy's best white grapes.
Details on every wine in the mixed case are below - there's plenty from all regions to explore and enjoy. To order, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the store at (212) 980-9463.
And check out the website regularly, because as the seasons change, so will our mixed case. In fact, we will always have a tailored - and discounted - mixed case available online, so when these 12 bottles run out, don't hesitate to reorder.

2010 Lapierre Raisins Gaulois
This wine delivers delicious purity of fruit and great freshness. A versatile food wine.
2004 Fernandez Escudo Plata Jumilla Gran Reserva
Old-fashioned Jumilla - a rare bird, indeed. This gutsy Monastrell- (a.k.a. Mourvèdre) based wine offers up rich dark fruits with plenty of herb-tinged wildness and minerals.
2008 Castellinuzza Chianti Classico
Gorgeous Chianti. This shows the more aromatic side of the Sangiovese grape with flowers, incense and bright cherry fruit.
2009 Gothic Pinot Noir "Nevermore" Willamette Valley
This Willamette Pinot delivers spiced dark cherry fruits and nice freshness.
2009 Señorío de Pecina Rioja Joven
This traditional Rioja is aged in stainless steel and offers deliciously pure blueberry fruit, spice and lively acidity.
2007 Domaine de la Fauterie St. Joseph
This lovely St. Joseph (mostly Syrah, Northern Rhône) delivers classic smoky and herbal notes along with dark fruits.
2008 Savary Chablis
Importer, Kermit Lynch, was led to this producer by none other than Raveneau. Savary’s Chablis shows plenty of concentration and tons of Chablisian minerality.
2008 Brun Roussanne VDT
Beaujolais maverick Jean-Paul Brun decided to try his hand at Roussanne. The result is crisp and floral, with notes of almonds.
2009 Frentana Costa del Mulino Cococciola
Cococciola is an obscure grape native to Italy's Abruzzo region. Frentana's possesses plenty of minerals along with citrus and a hint of grass.
2009 Lecomte Quincy
This is a classic Loire Sauvignon Blanc with notes of gunflint and herbs.
2008 Daniele Ricci Timorasso San Leto
From Piedmont's rare and indigenous Timorasso grape, this wine shows honeyed notes along with peach fruit, flowers and bright, persistent acidity. Many consider Timorasso one of Italy's most interesting and complex grapes. Ricci's offers a strong case for this argument in a style that recalls Italy's most inspired traditionalists, like Valentini.
2008 Ferrando Erbaluce Cascina Cariola
This grape indigenous to Piedmont shows striking florality and minerality. It has nice palate presence while maintaining a fascinating delicacy.
