NV Le Grand Courtage Blanc de Blanc
France
Undertones of Granny Smith apples, honeysuckle, strawberry & toasted brioche. Perfect balance of fruit, acidity & sweetness. Lingers nicely with a bit of Meyer lemon, honeydew & a continuing apple finish. Great length, crisp and refreshing finish.

2012 Astrolabe Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand
Intense and vividly focused, with plenty of pungent grass and fresh thyme notes up front, revealing a fleshy, juicy core of peach, citrus and melon. A crisp, bright acidity crescendos on the finish. 90 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.75 Retail $18.99

2010 Pennywise Merlot
California
Dark purple in color, this Merlot’s nose jumps from the glass with aromas of ripe blackberries, milk chocolate mousse, and fresh caramel crème brulee. Flavors of wild strawberry, toasted brioche bread pudding, and red raspberry fills your mouth with good structure, acidity, and depth. This wine finishes with flavors of deep blackberry, cherries jubilee, and toasty French oak with a hint of clove spice and fresh roasted coffee.
BTG $5.75 Retail $11.99

2011 Thomas Goss Cabernet
South Australia
Lively and open in texture, with prominent, pretty raspberry and white chocolate notes, lingering delicately. 89 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.00 Retail $16.99

2011 Peirano Estate Immortal Zinfandel
Lodi, California
Subtle aromas of red and black cherry, mineral, earthy rhubarb & red fruit, with slightly spicy notes. A layered mix of sweet red cherry, strawberry, cocoa & juicy red fruit flavors are followed by a lengthy, almost breathless, finish.
BTG $6.00 Retail $12.99
