2010 Chateau Tanunda Grand Barossa Riesling
Barossa Valley, South Australia, Australia
Intensely scented of honeysuckle, lime leaf, grapefruit and kumquat. Light-bodied, dry and crisp in the mouth, with good concentration, it has a long, citrusy finish. 89 pts Wine Advocate
BTG $7.50 Retail $17.99

2004 BODEGAS RESALTE DE PE√ĎAFIEL Restia Crianza Selected Harvest Tempranillo
Ribera del Duero, Spain
This maturing red is beautifully balanced, with fresh, ripe fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry, and deeper notes of cedar, tobacco, mineral and spice. The firm tannins are softening, yet this remains fresh and focused through the long finish. 93 pts Wine Spectator 2011 Top 100 #23
BTG $8.25 Retail $20.99

2009 Craggy Range Te Kahu Vineyard Proprietary Blend
Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
80% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Malbec. It was aged for 15 months in French barriques, 22% new, and gives notes of warm plums and blackberries with some dried fruits, tree bark and spice box hints. Tight-knit, crisp and with a firm level of chewy tannins on the medium-full bodied palate, it offers just enough flesh and a long finish. 91 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $6.00 Retail $13.99

2010 Ch Tanunda Grand Barossa Shiraz
Barossa Valley, South Australia, Australia
Firm and chewy, with a minty edge to the cherry and tobacco flavors, finishing with fine tannins. 89 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.50 Retail $17.99

2009 Moss Roxx Ancient Vine Zinfandel
Lodi, California
Superripe and loaded with showy, mocha-tinged oak. Dried cherry and cassis aromas lead to zesty plum, smoky pepper and toasty sage flavors.
BTG $9.50 Retail $23.99
