No charge for Tastings

NV Graham Beck Brut
South Africa
A blend of 49% Chardonnay and 51% Pinot Noir the Non-Vintage Brut has a soft, creamy bouquet with touches of apple-blossom and yeast aromas. The palate is well defined with good acidity on the entry, citrus peel, fresh lime with a pleasing, commercially minded creamy finish. Unbeatable “bang for bucks” as they say. Drink now. Graham Beck passed away in July 2010 leaving one almighty legacy behind him: a state-of-the-art winery that welcomes thousands of visitors each year, their sparkling Brut chosen by Michele Obama for her husband’s inauguration ceremony as well as Nelson Mandela’s in 1994
BTG $ 6.25 Retail $15.99

2011 Villa Wolf Pinot Gris
Pfalz, Germany
Pinot Gris has a very long tradition in the Pfalz region. In fact, it was here that the variety was first identified. Villa Wolf Pinot Gris is made in a full-bodied, dry style with refreshing, unoaked fruit and a crackling texture.
BTG $ 5.75 Retail $13.99

2011 St. Cosme Cotes du Rhone
A mouthfilling core of plum sauce and blackberry paste is backed by charcoal and anise on the finish. Solid, direct, pure and driven.

2009 Chateau Conseiller Bordeaux
This 100% Merlot from the highly regarded producer Jean-Philippe Janoueix has a dense plum/purple color and a big sweet kiss of mocha, black cherry, forest floor and earth. Its loads of fruit, unctuous texture and full-bodied mouthfeel make this Bordeaux Superieur taste more like a Grand Cru Classe. 90 Points Robert Parker
BTG $ 10.00 Retail $26.99

2008 Tobin James Syrah
Red meaty texture, lots of dark fruit. Good tannic balance. Plenty of soft spice, berries and smoke. Very big like a BBQ in a glass.
BTG 9.50 Retail $24.99
