No charge for Tastings

2012 Burgans Albarino
Rias Baixas, Galicia, Spain
Reveals loads of tropical fruit, white peach, honeysuckle and apricot notes along with medium body and a fresh, lively style. The crisp acid and abundant fruit make this a hedonistic, crowd-pleasing, dry white.
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99

2012 Villa Wolf Gewurtztraminer
Pfalz Region, Germany
This wine has a very pretty, classic Gew├╝rztraminer aroma of rose petals and exotic fruits, with a spicy edge. It is zippy, fresh, crisp and juicy, with a superb acid
to sugar balance. Simply put, it is delicious and satisfying.
BTG $6.25 Retail $13.99

2010 Angeline Reserve Pinot Noir
Sonoma, Santa Barbara & Mendicino, California
From Martin Ray a lively garnet color with aromas of intense fruit, luscious,vanilla and spice. Bright fruit flavors of fresh strawberry, cherry, raspberry and ripe plum are layered with creamy vanilla, earthy overtones, tea spice and sweet toasty oak on the finish.
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99

2012 Honoro Vera Merlot
Jumilla, Spain
Ripe, supple and succulent, offering a juicy mouthful of red berry and blackberry. Elegant and intense, building to a lingering aftertaste of
fruit, spice and mineral notes.
BTG $5.25 Retail $9.99

2011 Tapiz Cabernet
Mendoza, Argentina
Bright ruby-red. Wild, musky aromas of black cherry, crushed blackberry, shoe polish, spices, chocolate and licorice pastille, with a whiff of meaty redution: very Old World. Then fat, ripe and sweet in the mouth, with a sexy leesy complexity to the deep flavors of blackberry, mocha, chocolate, herbs and licorice. Creamy, mouthcoating wine with substantial ripe tannins and lingering notes of cassis, licorice and herbs. Legendary Pomerol winemaker Jean-Claude Berrouet, who made more than 40 vintages at Chateau Petrus, is now involved at Tapiz. An extraordinary value. 91 points Stephen Tanzer
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99
