Château Rochecolombe Rhône Valley, France

March 22, 2020

Château Rochecolombe 2018 Côtes du Rhône is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, all sourced from old vine parcels. Their 2018, once again, sports terrific richness and balance with complex notes of plum, cherry, tobacco leaf, and espresso, featuring a lovely beam of garrigue leading to an opulent, yet fresh and lifted palate.

2018 Rural Pinot Noir Eagle Peak AVA, Mendocino, California

March 8, 2020

We fell in love with this tasty West Coast Pinot Noir at first sip. The medium garnet color leads to a palate brimming with juicy cherry, raspberry, and strawberry. Subtle hints of violet, tea, and forest floor let you know this is classic Pinot Noir! There’s a nice dollop of richness in the middle palate that balances the silky tannins, and an ample beam of freshness and acidity keeps the lengthy finish super-clean. If you’re a Burgundy fan, there’s a lot to like about this one. If you’re already a fan of West-Coast Pinot Noir, this one’s a no-brainer!

2017 Evaluna Cabernet del Garda DOC Lake Garda, Veneto, Italy

February 29, 2020

The real excitement starts when you get this in your glass. A quick swirl opens up layers of blueberry and dark cherry on the nose and leads to an insanely plush palate of dark red and blue fruit — we’re talking velvety smooth! I’m thoroughly charmed by the Amarone and Ripasso-like nuance of this wine — especially remarkable from Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc!

2014 Bodegas Vilano – Tempranillo Ribera del Duero, Spain

February 15, 2020

This wine is always well rated, and I this review from the Spectator hits it spot on:
90 Points: Wine Spectator Sep 30, 2017
“This lively red delivers black cherry and licorice flavors, with smoky and leafy notes. Fresh and focused, in a balanced structure that is energetic and graceful. Made in a clean, modern style. Drink now through 2024. 8,850 cases made.” (90 pts.)

Domaine Amido Merlot IGP Lirac, France

February 8, 2020

I’m really glad that the family has continued to produce this gem of a Merlot. I’m sure they could rip out these vines and replant with a much more profitable selection of grapes. Perhaps it’s an homage to the late Christian Amido, or perhaps the family just loves this serious, yet quaffable Merlot as much as I do!

2015 Château De Cugat Bordeaux Supérieur Entre Deux Mers, Bordeaux, France

January 26, 2020

In the glass, you know you’re drinking classic, traditional Bordeaux. The nose is rich, round and inviting, while ripe blackcurrant, cherry, vanilla, spice, and subtle smoke notes converge on the supple medium-bodied palate. The tannins are silky and well-integrated, the finish is long and invites another sip.

2017 San Michele Arepo Rosso del Veronese Valpolicella Veneto, Italy

January 25, 2020

This is a wine that can fit a ton of culinary applications! Pair this silky gem with all of your favorite poultry and pork dishes. It’s soft enough for grilled salmon and has enough oomph for even a steak. It would also make a terrific greeter for your next dinner party.

2016 Jovino Pinot Noir Dobbes Family Estates Willamette Valley Oregon

January 25, 2020

Simply put, this wine is a bargain! It’s offered almost exclusively as a restaurant pour, so it’s not often available in retail. I can see exactly why it’s so popular in restaurants — it’s a great pair for a multitude of cuisine. and it’s terrific simply on it’s own!

Say No to Wine Tariffs

December 30, 2019

Let’s make our voices heard! It’s inconceivable to me; however, it’s possible there may be even more tariffs on wine and food imports from Europe. This round could be significantly higher and would encompass all of Europe instead of only those countries directly involved with the Airbus subsidies. Scroll down below for details on how…

Our Mission Statement

Who we are...

In 1993, the Asheville Wine Market opened in downtown Asheville committed to the idea that you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a great bottle of wine. Over twenty years later, now under the ownership of long time employee Laurence Weaver, that sentiment hasn’t changed. The Asheville Wine Market is still excited to be offering great wines at a great price, with an enthusiastic staff at the ready to help you find just the right bottle for your meal or occasion. We love talking about wine almost as much as we love to drink it, and hold firmly to the belief that wine is made to be enjoyed by everyone. After all, good wine is good wine, whether it costs $10 or $100. It’s the wine itself that interests us, as well as your enjoyment of it, not the price tag.
