Next a side by side comparison between two 100% Cabernet Sauvignons from Cachoapal Valley, Chile and Napa Valley. We’ll finish with a juicy Zinfandel that screams California. All great value wines.

No charge for tastings

 

Clos Pegase Mitsuko’s Vineyard Chardonnay, 2008 

92 Points Wine Enthusiast

Clos Pegase is a pure, clean Chardonnay; dry richness balanced with cool-climate acidity, citrus, pineapple and pear.

BTG $7.50                                        Retail $19.99         

  

Don Miguel Gascon Malbec, 2009 

 95% Malbec, 5% Shiraz      

Light aromas, but filled with blackberry, dark cherry, plum and some damp soil with a little hint of pepper. Blackberry, some cherry with pepper and mocha led to a dry smooth, short finish.

BTG $ 5.00                                         Retail $11.99

Santa Ema Amplus Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007

91 Points Wine Spectator

Polished and very focused, with a terrific beam of red and black currant fruit, fig cake and melted licorice notes that glide over seamless structure. A tangy iron hint and fresh acidity lengthen the finish..

BTG $8.50                                          Retail $21.99           

 

Buehler Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007

The wine is brimming with fruit aromas and flavors biased to the black fruit end of the cabernet spectrum: plums, blackberry, black currant. Rich and full-bodied on the palate.

BTG $ 9.25                                        Retail $24.99                               

 

Alexander Valley Temptation Zinfandel , 2008

Alexander and Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma and juice from Solano County East of Napa.

This is your go-to Zin to kick back on a Tuesday night. It offers juicy flavors of cherries, blueberries, cranberries and plums.

BTG $ 5.50                                     Retail $13.99
