2011 Tabali Viognier
Limari Valley, Coquimbo, Chile
Exhibits scents of peach, apricot, and stony minerals. Vibrant, dry, and intense on the palate. Vina Tabali’s impressive lineup of wines is produced entirely from cool-climate Limari fruit. 88pts Wine Advocate
BTG $6.25 Retail $14.99

2010 Jules Taylor Pinot Noir
Marlborough, New Zealand
The wild fermentation along with extended lees maturation in a barrel has added complexity and texture to the palate on this Pinot Noir. This has created a supple wine with good weight and fruit intensity, which is already showing chocolate and cherry aromas mingled with hints of oak. The wine has a wonderfully vivid, violet hue.
BTG $9.25 Retail $22.99

2011 Chapoutier Bila-Haut Syrah, Grenache and Carignan.
Cotes du Roussillon, Roussillon, France
Deep garnet red. Aromas of black cherry. This wine is fleshy, Well-structured with the warm and savage of soils of the Roussillon area.
90pts Wine Advocate
BTG $6.50 Retail $15.99

2011 Zorzal Terroir Unico Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
Comes from a 15-year-old espalier vineyard located 1,350 meters and is fermented with natural yeasts and aged in concrete tanks rather than wood. It has a wonderful bouquet with blackberry, tomato vine and granitic notes. It has what you might call a “naked” nose disrobed of oak, but it is very pure and vibrant. The palate is fresh and vibrant embroidered with brisk, fine tannins. It is suffused with lively pure black cherry and bilberry fruit and a taut, citric, dry finish. You would never guess this is from Argentina, and it is just downright, unapologetically delicious. Drink now-2017. 93 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $7.50 Retail $17.99

2008 Centerline Highflyer Syrah (81%), Petit Sirah (12%), Tempranillo (4%) and Zinfandel (3%).
Napa Valley, Napa, North Coast, California, USA
Bold, juicy wine packed with super-ripe, dark red fruit. Made in a forward, plump style.
produced 82 barrels of this wine in 2008. Ripe cherry, baker’s chocolate, and spicy notes leap out of the glass to
form the aromatic profile. This is underlined by a palate of lush tannin, fresh berries, and rounded out by creamy,
integrated, oak nuance. 89pts Wine Advocate
BTG $9.25 Retail $22.99
