Mexico


Arette Blanco 1L Arette Blanco 1L $18.00

Understanding that occasionally budget and a multiple margarita day often requires a more affordable tequila, the fine folks at Arette have crafted this Blanco. Still possesses the bright agave floral notes and the flavor brings a nice agave spice rather than the skunky funk of many others in this price range. Our go-to when we aren't drinking tequila straight.



Arette Reposado 1L Arette Reposado 1L $18.00

Obviously not made with the attention of the Suave line but sometimes that's not a big deal. Sometimes you just need tequila, and you need it now but you also want a bit of oak so you don't choke. Here's your 1L bottle of angry love when you don't feel like being a hipster.



Discreto Encanto Discreto Encanto $18.00

After years of making wine just to distill, Mexico's cool Guadaloupe Valley on the Baja has used temperatiure controlled fermentation to start making some serious wines! This blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Chenin Blanc shows notes of kiwi, pink grapefruit, baked apples with lilting aromas of smoke and stone.



Banhez Espadin Mezcal Banhez Espadin Mezcal $38.00

Just keep walking, you donít want to enter the rabbit hole that is Mezcal. Deep in Oaxaca, this rich, smoky spirit has been made in the traditional ways unchanged by the passage of time. Mezcal enlivens the spirit, bringing us Banhez, or bliss, in the ancient Zapotec language. A respectable entry point to your new obsession.

Tequila that rests in American White Oak barrels for 11 months, where it gets its smooth aromas of soft caramel, smoke and faint woody character. Some bright citrus notes on the palate with a clean tight finish.



Fortaleza Reposado Fortaleza Reposado $52.00

With a lineage dating back to the first to export Tequila to the U.S. comes reposado from the heavens.

Necesito Tequila! Dios mio! Aged a minimum 1 year in oak barrels this tequila shows rich, complex notes of caramel, butterscotch, raisin, hints of tropical fruits and spice. Rich mouthfeel, thick oily texture with more flavors of toffee and hazelnuts. An utter delight for tequila lovers.



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Tintero Moscato

    #1 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #3 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. (behind by 2 bottles)

  • Hunky Dory Tangle

    #4 Hunky Dory Tangle

    This white blend is unlike your usual NZ Sauv Blanc, an organic blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Riesling done quite dry. Shows honeysuckle, white peach and clean stone on the nose with flavors of apple peach and rose petals. The acid is softer and rounder than sav blanc but crisper than most any Gewurz or Riesling you may have had. Yes, it really is "hunky dory". (behind by 15 bottles)

Fun New Arrivals

  • Bermatinger

    Bermatinger

    Do you love Burgundy, but not the price tag attached to it? This spatburgunder from Baden gives you a stellar example of what pinot can be outside of France. Red fruits and floral notes accompanied by that earthy, forest floor, mushroom that Burgundy is known for. Beautifully balanced, definitely one that should have a place at your table.

  • Poquito Moscato

    Poquito Moscato

    Lightly sparkling, fruity and sassy, Poquito is small in size but big on taste. Delicate floral aromas combine with a sweet yet refreshing palate of ripe peaches, pears and apricots. Apply liberally at any social occasion. Great right out of the bottle but really amazing with mint and rum as a mojito!

  • Schieferkopf

    Schieferkopf

    Acid freaks rejoice! This dry Riesling shows the classic stone minerality and petrol on the nose with floral aromatics as well. The palate yields citrus, green apple and stonefruits with mouth watering acidity. A great food wine or one simply just to drink.
