Our January "Staff Select" Wines
1. 2010 Federico Paternina Rioja Reserva | Spain · SALE $12.99
This light bodied Rioja is big on flavor! Snag a few of these well-priced bottles for your mid-week Italian at-home meals! It's a great pizza wine and compliments spicier foods nicely. Plum and blackberry, with a subtle hint of licorice on the finish!
2. 2011 Quinta do Portal Douro Reserva | Portugal · SALE $18.99
91 points | Wine Enthusiast
A powerfully tannic wine, full of the mineral texture and dark structure of a fine Douro wine. It has rich berry and plum skin flavors with underlining from acidity. The tannins, still young, promise aging. Drink from 2017.

3. 2016 Bianchi Winery Chardonnay | California · SALE $15.99
87 points | Wine Enthusiast
Rounded aromas of Asian pear and citrus show on the nose of this bottling. The flavors combine lemon juice with tart green apple and a bit of nutty warmth.
4. 2016 Les Chênes de Domeyne Saint-Estèphe | France · SALE $19.99
This dark Bordeaux wine showcases loads of dark fruit and smooth tannins. Rich berry flavors of currant and black fruit jams are abundant and lingering. Easy enough to drink, alone, but wonderful paired with cured meats and hard cheeses.
