NV Adami Prosecco 13 Garbel
Veneto, Italy
Endowed with notable varietal character in its white peaches, pears and flowers. This is a beautiful, crisp Prosecco loaded with personality that comes though in the clean, mineral-laced finish. 89 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $7.50 Retail $17.99

2012 A To Z Pinot Gris
Oregon
Intense aromatics of lime blossom, nectarine, tangerine, melon, wet stone and guava that build into aromatics of nutmeg, Bing cherries and kiwi. The palate is concentrated, ripe and succulent with wonderful lush fruit and mineral notes. The wine moves seamlessly into a finish that goes on for some time before finishing crisply. The lasting impression of the wine is great purity and intensity balanced by wonderful juiciness and succulence. 88 pts Wine Spectator
BTG $6.25 Retail $14.99

2010 Terra Sigilata Filon Grenache
Calatayud, Aragon, Spain
Sourced from 30- to 40-year-old vineyards. It offers up notes of smoke, mineral, and wild cherry that mingle with layers of ripe cherry fruit on the palate. This savory offering over-delivers in a big way.
BTG $5.50 Retail $10.99

2008 Elyse C’EST SI BON
Napa
C’est Si Bon (It’s so good!), is made from grapes indigenous to the Rhone Valley in Southern France, yet very well suited to the terroir of the Sierra Foothills. This wine has intriguing aromas of red stone fruit, black raspberries, cassis, tangerine peel, and pomegranate along with hints of earth, wild game, and herbes de Provence. On the palate, flavors of ripe plums, bright cherries, wild berries and a hint of chocolate lead to a creamy, sensuous mouth feel and genuinely long finish. Full bodied and amazingly well balanced with vibrant fruit, subtle tannins, and bright acidity. It has great depth, balance, and finesse – and is way too easy to drink.
BTG $9.25 Retail $22.99

2010 Martin Ray Cabernet
Sonoma County
Soft, sweet clove overtones back aromatics thick with smoky vanilla and a whisper of anise. This pretty and intense wine with a nice, luscious mouth-filling character is full of dark, lightly smoked, sweet fruit, layered with rich texture and a mellow tannic backbone.
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99
