Martin Codax Albariño, 2010
This is an aromatic wine, elegant, dry and crisp on the finish. The key aromatic and flavor notes are pear, passion fruit and apple. Acidity is bright and integrates well with aromatic elements into a balanced whole.

Neil Ellis Sincerely Sauvignon Blanc, 2010
Sourced from a multi-vineyard blend, average 12 years in age, in Stellenbosch, Groenekloof and Elgin. The soils are mostly decomposed granite with varying clay percentages.
Predominant flavors are those of tropical fruit with herbaceous overtones, whilst the overall impression is of elegance and delicacy with a long flavorsome finish.
BTG $5.75 Retail $13.99

Forefront Pinot Noir, 2010
Opening with lifted aromas of wild berries, black raspberry and star anise, this wine immediately seduces the palate with an abundance of sweet cherry, raspberry and pomegranate flavors. Racy acidity balances the round, generous fruit for an elegant and alluring wine.
BTG $8.50 Retail $21.99

Lucente, 2009
75% Merlot and 25% Sangiovese from Montalcino, Italy.
A luminous purple-red, with ruby highlights greets the eye. The nose is presenting a broad range of elegant aromatic impressions. Smooth, ripe scents of dried plum and blackberry preserves, along with more pungent roasted espresso bean, baker’s chocolate, and subtle notes of green pepper. The palate is notable for its warmth and roundness, displaying smooth, glossy tannins, and a well-balanced acidity offers delicious support to a sturdy, firm structure. Intriguing notes of salty mineral on the finish conclude this finely-balanced, harmonious wine.
BTG $9.25 Retail $23.99

Rombauer Zinfandel, 2010
Deep purple in color; powerful aromas of wild berries, clove and plum emerge from the glass. Luscious, juicy layers of black cherry, blackberry and boysenberry integrate with nuances of allspice and burst on the palate. Berry flavors linger for an extended finish.
BTG $12.00 Retail $32.99
