2012 CHÂTEAU D’ESCLANS Côtes de Provence Rosé Whispering Angel
Provence, France
This elegant wine displays a sense of power behind the delicate flavors of dried cherry, licorice, cream and spice. Finishes with notes of dried mango and hints of sage honey. 90 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2011 BORTOLUZZI Pinot Grigio
Friuli, Venezia-Giulia, Italy
Fig, quince, kumquat and ripe apple flavors are nicely layered with clean, juicy acidity in this creamy Pinot Grigio. There’s a stony sub layer that leaves a hint of smoke lingering on the finish. 88 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.75 Retail $18.99

2012 Belle Glos Meomi Pinot Noir
Monterey-Santa Barbara-Sonoma Counties
Deep, rich garnet color. The wine opens up with aromas of ripe berries, fresh cranberry, candy apple and malted vanilla, some of which carries through to the palate. There’s a hint of Granny Smith apple on first sip that beautifully balances out the rich cream soda
and cherry cola notes. It is an extremely layered wine, both in structure and flavor, with a slight earthiness and sweet oak on the finish
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2011 San Marzano Primitivo
Puglia, Italy
Lush, fruity and fragrant, bursting with aromas and flavors of raspberries and red fruit. Round and well balanced, with perfectly integrated structure, and acidity.
BTG $5.75 Retail $12.99

2010 Sbragia Home Ranch Merlot
Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, North Coast, California
Bursts from the glass with juicy dark berries, tobacco, spices and dried flowers. Sweet floral notes appear on the mid-palate, adding lift and femininity. The 2010 includes a dollop of Cabernet Franc from Mt. Veeder that adds welcome shades of further nuance. This is another screaming value from Ed and Adam Sbragia. 89 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $9.25 Retail $22.99
