2009 Mercy Sauvignon Blanc
Arroyo Seco, CA
This style of Sauvignon Blanc is innately crisp and racy, yet due to the clone also has a rich, round mouth texture. Straw-like in color, the bouquet features bright white grapefruit, lemon and melon aromas, as well as underlying notes of hay and mineral characters. Replete with acidity, the wine is aromatic, clean and refreshing.
BTG $6.75 Retail $16.99

2009 Blacksmith Cellars Chardonnay
Suisun Valley, North Coast California
Elegantly styled, the wine exhibits wonderful breadth on the palate with a medium-bodied personality packed with sweet apples, pears and hints rose petals. The wine hits the palate in front with packed fruit intensity and lively acidity. It then transitions across the palate to the finish which is soft and creamy with hints of butterscotch and caramel.
BTG $7.75 Retail $19.99

2010 Purple Hands Oregon Red Blend
30%Cabernet, 30% Merlot, 30% Syrah and 10%Cabernet Franc
Texturally silky and creamy, the raspberry red fruit medley dance across a chocolate backbone finishing in dark fruit, red licorice and anise lingering on a caramel periphery.
BTG $7.75 Retail $19.99

2007 Blacksmith Cellars, Alexander Valley “Hephaestus” Sonoma, Ca
36% Syrah, 35% Grenache, 29% Cabernet
This bold and stylish wine offers up a fragrant bouquet exhibiting intense blackberry liqueur and black raspberries. The palate is rich and elegant with jammy dark fruit, cassis and hints of lavender. Enjoyable now, this wine will age beautifully over the next 3-5 years.
