No charge for tastings

2011 Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc
South Africa
A bright lemon-green colour with a pronounced nose of citrus, lemon zest, green fig and black current leaves all held together by an intriguing floral note. A vivid palate with an engaging concentration of clementine peel, granadilla pulp, Cape Gooseberry and melon. Herbal undertones with a complex, chalky minerality compliments the mouthwatering finish.
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99

2012 Hanna Chardonnay
Russian River Valley, California
Brilliant straw-gold color, with aromas of baked apple, croissant, and allspice. Flavors are of apple, Crème Brule, champagne and caramelized pear. The texture is weighty and rich with a lively acidity to freshen the finish.
BTG $9.00 Retail $22.99

2011 Lyric Pinot Noir
California
Vibrant hues of ruby lead to loads of fruit and a youthful grapiness that’s balanced with some sweet, creamy wood. Silky, round tannins make this oh-so-inviting wine approachable now, while its structure and acidity show promise for the long-term.
BTG $9.00 Retail $22.99

2011 Conundrum Proprietary Red Blend
California
A big style, featuring fresh, pure, complex aromatics that echo the dark berry, mineral and floral notes, accented by cranberry and spice.

2012 DAOU Cabernet Sauvignon
Paso Robles, California
A serious effort that delivers classic Cabernet character with plenty of black fruits, cassis, wild herbs and earthy qualities all showing on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, rich and balanced, with good acidity and ripe tannin. 91 pts Wine Advocate
BTG $9.75 Retail $25.99
