Michael Houdek Wine Selections

Mike imports wines that are available only here at the shoppe. Here are some of those wines.
BODEGAS MACAYA ALMARA FINCA LINTE
SPANISH RED. Here's a beauty I bring in exclusively for the shoppe. It comes from the Navarra Region and is made from 100% Tempranillo grapes. It is a medium-bodied dry red that is very soft and quite easy to consume. Full of flavor and drinking so-o-o-o good right now. This juicy wine is great with all meats and pasta too. A solid dollar value.
BODEGAS MACAYA CONDADO DE ALMARA CRIANZA
SPANISH RED. This richly textured full-bodied dry red is a blend of 50% Tempranillo and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Six months of oak aging adds roundness and coplexity to this smooth juicy red. Though drinking great right now, it will get even better with a couple more years of aging to it. A high quality wine at an affordable price. Match it up with all types of meats and friends.
BODEGAS MACAYA CONDADO DE ALMARA SELECCION
SPANISH RED. Superstar wine from the Navarra Region located right above Rioja. this is a full-bodied luscious dry red that is packed with gorgeous fruit and flavor. It is made from 100% Tempranillo and aged for six months in Amarican oak barrels which gives the wine its soft tannins and long smooth finish. Hard to beat this kind of quality for the price.
LA MAS DES FLAUZIERES VENTOUX
FRENCH WHITE. Here is a pretty white wine that I bring in from the Cote Du Ventoux region right next to the southern Rhone area. This great value full-bodied delicous dry white is a blend of mainly Clairette and Rousanne with a little bit of Viognier as well. There is no new oak in this wine. It is all about the fruit and rich mouthfeel here. Enjoy this smooth and substantial wine with seafood, chicken and pork.
LA MAS DES FLAUZIERES COTES DU RHONE VILLAGES LE LAURIAS
FRENCH RED. The wonderful thing about Cotes Du Rhone wines, to me, is that they are so well made and so well priced. You can afford to drink them as your everyday wine plus drink something that is really good. This full-bodied dark dry red is a blend of equal parts Grenache and Syrah. Have it with simple things like burgers and roast chicken.
DOMAINE DES BANQUETTES COTES DU RHONE
FRENCH RED. Another gem exclusive to the shoppe. 2011 is another incredible vintage in the Rhone and it really shows in this evreryday drinking, affordable winner. It is a blend of Grenache and Syrah with a little bit of Carignan as well. It is a full-bodied dry red that isn't harsh or astringent. It is very smooth and round for such a young wine. Serve it up with friends and food!
