2011 Ernesto Catena Padrillos Torrontes
Mendoza, Argentina
Greenish in color. Aromas of floral, citrus and melon. Hint of grapefruit with a medium finish
BTG $5.25 Retail $11.99

2011 Tom Eddy Tenz Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand
Hints of classic Marlborough Sauvignon herbal qualities complement other complex characteristics of fig, litchi, and hay. Floral aromas commingle with subtle grapefruit and crisp lemon to round out the flavor profile and add the right amount of integrated complexity. The middle mouth is very round and full, yet perfectly balanced with the food-friendly acid that permeates the wine’s backbone. The mouth-watering finish lingers on the pallet allowing for lengthy enjoyment until the next sip is taken.
BTG $7.50 Retail $18.99

2010 Laetitia Pinot Noir
Arroya Grand Valley, California
Light and fruity. A hint of oak. Lingering taste of dried tobacco. Medium body and acidity, with ripe red fruit that has some nice spice and earth on the finish and maintains good balance throughout.
BTG $8.00 Retail $20.99

2010 Frescobaldi Tenuti di Castiglioni
Tuscany, Italy
Flaunts the densest, opaque purple-red, a depth that is impressively mirrored in its rich nose. Crisp minty essences emerge first, followed by a spicy mélange of clove, cinnamon, and vanilla, which concludes with a prominent vein of slaty mineral. Solid structure shows through in the mouth, with juicy tannins and a judicious acidity developing through the palate; it tapers off nicely in a perfect balance of elements.
BTG $8.00 Retail $20.99

2011 Achavel Ferrer Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
Very pure, with a beam of raspberry coulis, blackberry and cherry pulp notes that pump out layers of spice, flint and wildflowers. Juicy yet structured, with a mineral edge to the long, savory finish. 92 pts Wine Spectator
BTG $8.50 Retail $21.99
