No charge for tastings

Corvidae Wine Co. Mirth Chardonnay, 2009
Mirth means happiness and this wine is just that. 100% stainless steel fermented, this is a clean, vibrant Chardonnay. Flavors of golden delicious apples, Meyer lemon and just a hint of ripe tropical fruit marry together beautifully while a balanced acidity gives it a bright clean finish.
BTG $ 5.00 Retail $10.99

Calera Central Coast Pinot Noir, 2008
The 2008 Central Coast Pinot Noir has a vibrant, beautiful garnet color. Aromas of black cherry with a hint of sweet oak wrap around a comforting core of boysenberry pie. The taste is lively –spicy blackberry and cassis, with bramble & briar and good structure. This is a smooth, delightful wine with a lot of personality.
BTG $ 9.25 Retail $23.99
JL Chave Selections CdR Mon Coeur, 2009
50% Grenache, 50% Syrah
This comes from their negociant label, JL Chave Selections, meaning they make the wine but do not own the vineyards. Jean-Louis chooses to work with only the best growers in and around Châteauneuf-du-Pape to make his Côtes du Rhône. Full of luscious berry fruit and earth with that distinctive ‘garrigue’ flavor that is only found in the Rhône, this is a serious Côtes du Rhône that could age for another decade.
BTG $ 7.75 Retail $19.99

T Vine Napa Valley Petite Sirah, 2007
Petite it is NOT. Le grand Sirah! Expect dark chocolate, blackberry pie, and loads of lush, ripe fruit showing through a structure of wood smoke and rose petals. This wine is full of texture and depth. For fans of BIG, strapping reds that stain your teeth!
Retail $43.99

Elio Perrone Moscato d’Asti Sourgal, 2010
Incredible, delicate aromas and flavors of fresh pear, white grapes, and white blossoms. The ethereal sweetness is balanced by the ever-so-lovely frizzante character. Fresh, low in alcohol, and ridiculously drinkable.
BTG $ 7.75 Retail $19.99
