No charge for tastings

2011 Badenhorst ” Secateurs” Chenin Blanc
Swartland, South Africa
A plump, forward style, but with enough fresh acidity to add length and definition to the yellow apple, melon and heather flavors. 4,000 cases imported. 89pts Wine Spectator
BTG $6.00 Retail $14.99

2010 Anderson Conn Valley Prologue Chardonnay
Central Coast, California
Light golden straw, Lemon, butterscotch, melon, pear and a hint of spice. Medium mouth feel with nice fruit and acid. Crisp pear, mineral, pineapple. Steelystyle with very good fruit. Lots of clean Chardonnay fruit.
BTG $6.75 Retail $16.99

2010 Emilio Moro Finca Resalso Tinto Fino
Ribera Del Duero, Spain
Saturated ruby. Primary dark berry and cherry skin aromas are complicated by notes of rose and anise. Juicy and precise on the palate, with very good energy to its red currant and bitter cherry flavors. Finishes tight and energetic, with the red currant and anise notes repeating.
90 pts Stephen Tanzer
BTG $6.75 Retail $16.99

2010 Tikal Natural Malbec
Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
The 2010 Natural is 100% Malbec made from organically grown grapes and aged for 12 months in French and American oak. It offers up an expressive nose of wood smoke, spice box, violets, tobacco, and black cherry. This is followed by an elegant, sweetly-fruited, forward wine that over-delivers in a big way. 91 pts Robert Parker
BTG $9.00 Retail $22.99

2008 Eberle Zinfandel
Paso Robles, California
Ripe and jammy, with briary cherry and dried sage aromas leading to supple flavors of baked cherry, bittersweet chocolate and spice.
89pts Wine Spectator, 92 pts Hollywood Vine
BTG $9.25 Retail $23.99
