CASTEL DE VILARNAU BRUT CAVA, NV

Bright, pale yellow colour with golden shades. Candid to the nose, with a good aromatic density, green apple and light undertones from the ageing process (tertiary aromas).
Well rounded in the palate, with a balanced flavor; tasty, smooth and persistent. Well integrated and gently carbonic. Very clean after-taste with a prominence of fruity aromas.

SWANSON PINOT GRIGIO, 2008
Aromas of lychee, Meyer lemon zest and pear can be found in the nose, and are echoed in the mouth. Very long and smooth on the palate, with ample body, this wine is reminiscent of fresh, ripe Pinot Grigio grapes.
BTG $ 7.00 Retail $17.99
ZACA MESA SYRAH, 2007
It displays rich blackberry, cassis, espresso, mocha and our signature sage spice aromas and flavors. The silky finish lingers from the ripe tannins and smoky oak.
.BTG $ 7.75 Retail $21.99
ZD CABERNET SAUVIGNON, 2007
“This ZD 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, with its powerful aromas of blackberry, cassis and spicy dark plum is another example of an exceptional vintage from the Napa Valley.
Following ZD’s signature style of producing big, ripe, powerful yet balanced Cabernet Sauvignons, we sourced the fruit from several small, intensely farmed Napa Valley vineyards, each with its own unique “terroir”. Each lot was fermented separately in small open top stainless steel fermentors, and punched down three times a day to ensure an effective but gentle extraction of color and tannins. This wine was aged for two years in American oak. Dark and dense, this wine is bursting with complexity. The core of ripe fruit integrates beautifully with subtle hints of vanilla, clove and mocha, and the lush, silky tannins round out the long, rich finish.” Chris Pisani, Winemaker
BTG $12.00 Retail $32.99
NACHTGOLD EISWEIN, 2009
This ice wine with its golden-yellow color, its intense aroma of peaches, melons and apples and its elegant, mature sweetness .
