12 great wines plus 1
Locations F 1 (Dave Phinney/Orin Swift): This wine is a dead ringer for California cabernet. Massive black fruits stewed in a volcano of molted Valrhona chocolate. You would be shocked to find out it's a blend of cabernet, merlot, syrah and grenache from the Catalan region of France on the Spanish border. This is where grenache reigns supreme. Price: $20. Goes with: Lamb stew with oil cured black olives, wild mushrooms and tomatoes with rosemary and thyme. Why I chose it: It's time to start hunkering down by the fireplace and there is no better reward for 12 weeks of cold, snowy weather than a good meal and a bottle of wine.
reasons we asked Printz to select our Mixed Case, and to include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. Here's a look at what he chose.
Renwood Zinfandel 2010: Classic zinfandel aroma and texture: pure, ripe strawberries and cracked black pepper. Region: Lodi, Calif. Price: $22. Goes with: Ripe, sticky cheeses like Reblochon served with toasted olive bread. Why I chose it: It has bright, peppery notes and a higher alcohol content, both of which will warm the cockles of your heart on chilly nights.
Printz tastes more than 100 wines a week, so he knows what's new. And trendy. And what wine works with what food. Plus, he seeks out smaller wine makers that you may have never heard of. You may find your next favorite wine when Printz pours it at his shop.

From a deep Sicilian red and a purple Tempranillo from Spain, to a golden chardonnay from Oregon and a bright little handmade sparkler from France, we've seen a dozen great choices for our LoHud Wine of the Week over the past three months. Now it's time to recap our Mixed Case.
Gavilan Pinot Noir 2012: This wine speaks of sunshine on ripened cherries. Bright and balanced, it comes from a region of California that has an upwelling of limestone, which helps with a long finish. Region: Mount Edna near Monterey, Calif. Price: $20. Goes with: Asian pork loin, seared salmon with black forbidden rice, or just good conversation. Why I chose it: It is a perfectly balanced wine that will remind you of sitting outside at a summer barbecue. A much needed daydream in the middle of January.
Oddero Langhe 2010 Nebbiolo: Tastes like a baby Barolo. It has finesse, silky tannins and gobs of cherry fruit. Region: Piedmonte, Italy. Price: $26. Goes with: An herb garlic crown roast of pork or lentils and sausage. Why I chose it: Barolo is, plain and simple, the most noble Italian grape.
Champagne Canard Duchne Brut Rose NV: A very sophisticated wine with red berry and dried strawberry notes. Not a hint of sweetness. Region: Reim, France. Price: $40. Goes with: Duck, caviar, runny cheese and romance. Why I chose it: Because it's elegant and has tiny bubbles.
"I like to find the unique and the good in all the wines that are out there," he says. "I don't just like to find what everyone likes to consider their benchmark wine. I like to find things that are very different."
Bourcier Martinot Macon: This white Burgundy is limey, elegantly oaked and fits perfectly into your New Year's resolutions: It's low in calories and in price. You can have a glass after yoga and not feel guilty or weighted down. Region: Burgundy, France. Price: $16. Goes with: Roast chicken, cornmeal crusted filet of sole. Why I chose it: It is assertive enough for food, but it can take a back seat to conversation.
Evening Land Mad Hatter Chardonnay 2010: Notes of lime zest and hazelnut. Very zippy and citrusy without being sour. Region: Willamette, Ore. Price: $40. Goes with: Filet of sole with beurre noisette and capers or Cornish hens with lime and thyme. Why I chose it: If you were to pay for a flavor equivalent in France, you would have to buy a Meursault for $65. This is a treat.
Cellier des Dauphins 2011 Ctes du Rhone: A 50 50 blend of grenache and syrah, this wine is bright and vivid with Jolly Rancher blackberries with a cocoa finish. Region: Tulette, France. Price: $13. Goes with: Chicken and fennel stew with green olives and caramelized lemons or a braised brisket and onions dinner. Or just plain old French onion soup. Why I chose it: We all need a break from the ever increasing price of wine, and this is a winner.
$32. Goes with: Caviar, hors d'oeuvres, anything fried. Even Twinkies. Why I chose it: It's hard to find a more luxurious bottle of bubbles Adidas Hat Girl at this price.
Scinniri 2011 Etna Rosso: Has the mouth feel of pinot noir and tastes of dried cranberries, cedar, sage and red currant. Region: Sicily, Italy. Price: $22. Goes with: Turkey dinner, pork chops with black plums. Why I chose it: It's an interesting alternative to pinot noir that delivers complexity at a great price. It's a very versatile wine that can start off cocktail hour and stand up to a complex meal.
2011 Montesierra Tempranillo: Dark purple intensity, with hints of tobacco, stewed black plums and vanilla from toasted oak. Region: Cigales, Spain. Price: $13. Goes with: Steak au poivre or any rich, dark meat stew like beef or lamb. Why I chose it: A mouthful of wine with complexity far surpassing its price.
Joe Printz, owner of Grape D'Vine in Sparkill, has been our expert in residence for the winter season. For Christmas dinner, he gave us a bonus wine (our case this time is a baker's dozen!). As we rang in the new year, he had eight Champagnes for us to pop. And just a couple of Adidas Cap Tumblr Boy
Philippe Prie Non Vintage Champagne: This wine tastes like a vintage Champagne, minus the price. It is lush and developed, tasting of toasted brioche and unsweetened lemon curd. Region: Reims, France. Price: Cap Adidas White
Vera Alvarinho 2011: This Portuguese white will make you drool like a teething baby. Fragrant white flowers, bright lemon zest, bursting with vivid acidity. Region: Minho, Portugal. Price: $17. Goes with: Striped bass in garlic sauce, calamari salad or any fish you can throw at it. Even bait. Why I chose it: It over delivers for its price. Anyone who has ever bought it comes back for more.
Sterza Amarone 2009: Festive and celebratory, this wine is like blackberries on steroids. It has a massive backbone of earth and a high alcohol content. Region: Veneto, Italy. Price: $45. Goes with: Hearty red meats like steak, leg of lamb or venison. Why I chose it: A good wine for a special occasion.
