2012 Martin Ray Sauvignon Blanc
Napa Valley, California
Enticing aromas of peach, pineapple, lime zest and orange blossom continue as flavors in the rich, yet juicy mouth. Long, delicious finish.
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99

2011 La Follette Chardonnay
North Coast, California
Delightfully delicate and complex, this offers a light scent of creamy, vanilla-tinged oak, leading to a smooth mix of light hazelnut, baked apple and honeydew melon notes. 89 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $8.50 Retail $21.99

2012 Sant Antonio “Scaia” Corvina
Veneto, Italy
The wine exhibits a bright ruby color with purple and garnet highlights. On first nose, the dusty mineral notes are what make the biggest impression. Flint and brimstone slowly give way to small berry fruit, wild raspberries and white cherries. This is a beautiful wine that would drink well, slightly chilled, next to white meat or heavy seafood dishes. The wine wins high points for drinkability and overall freshness. It immediately evokes excellent food pairing possibilities. 90+Pts Wine Advocate (previous vintage)
BTG $6.50 Retail $14.99

2011 Zuccardi Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
Concentrated and toasty, with layers of smoke, spice and licorice to the mulled plum, fig and blackberry fruit, supported by bright acidity and medium tannins. 90 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $7.50 Retail $17.99

2010 Casey Flat Ranch Estate Red
Paso Robles, California
Firm, dry tannins wrapped around rich dark berry, spice, pepper and tobacco leaf, ending with a tight focus on the pepper and dried berry. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. 90 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $9.50 Retail $24.99
