2012 St Andre De Figuiere Rose Cabernet, Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault
Provence, France
A salmon pink robe. A bouquet of apples and pineapple, crisp and clean on the palate with a good finish of stone fruits.
BTG $7.00 Retail $16.99

2011 Jean Marc Brocard Chablis
Burgundy, France
Lemon, white flowers and crushed rocks are layered together nicely in the 2011 Chablis Domaine Sainte Claire. Tasted from tank, the 2011 possesses gorgeous vibrancy and brightness to match an energetic, polished, promising personality. 89 pts Wine Advocate
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2009 Borsao Berola 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
Campo De Borja, Aragon, Spain
Some oak enters the picture here, as this cuvee is aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for about 14 months. This is a hefty, rich, impressive wine. Abundant notes of black currants, black cherries, licorice, flowers, vanillin and spice box are found in the aromas and flavors of this medium to full-bodied, silky, well-endowed wine. Unbelievable! 90 pts Wine Advocate
BTG $6.25 Retail $14.99

2010 Ch La Tour St Bonnett 45% Merlot, 45% Cabernet 10% Petit Verdot
Medoc,Bordeaux, France
A beautiful sleeper of the vintage, this is possibly the best wine I-ve ever tasted from this over-achieving estate near St.-Christoly-de-Medoc. An absolutely staggering value in the worldwide marketplace. Exhibits classic cedar wood, tobacco leaf, creme de cassis, licorice and some balsam wood notes in a strong, medium to full-bodied, layered style with good opulence, purity and overall harmony. A real beauty.

BTG $8.75 Retail $21.99

2010 DEI Rosso di Montepulciano
Tuscany, Italy
Packed with cherry and plum fruit, this red is generous, with a supple texture. The dusty tannins are coated by flesh and bright acidity. Fine length. 90 pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.75 Retail $18.99
