No charge for Tastings

2013 Santa Luz Sauvignon Blanc
Colchagua Valley, Chile
This is one of those “nose to tail” wines that starts with good fruit aromas and finishes with palate-cleansing acidity.
Has pure fruit and a crisp palate with notes of herb and lemon curd culminating in a lively finish.
BTG $5.00 Retail $8.99

2012 Santa Barbara Winery Pinot Noir
Santa Barbara, California
Intense, tight and young, with a firm tannic framework built around the vibrant berry and floral scents. The tannins carry the flavors through the finish. Chewy. 88 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2013 Honoro Vera Monastrell
Jumilla, Spain
This chewy red offers black cherry, meaty, smoky and light herbal flavors that show a pleasantly earthy character, with muscular tannins. Manages to stay fresh through the finish.
BTG$5.50 Retail $10.99

2012 Mocali Rosso di Montalcino
Tuscany, Italy
A highly recommend value wine. The wine is seductive and irresistible thanks to fullness of the fruit it offers in such a confident, almost cocky manner. This is a wine that knows what it wants to accomplish: It makes good on its promise to deliver a genuine, no-fuss drinking experience without the grand expectations of a Brunello di Montalcino. The architecture here is modern with big lines and chunky cherry endnotes. But it also makes rooms for the subtleties of menthol, licorice and balsam herb. 91+ pts Wine Advocate
BTG $8.50 Retail $21.99

Sauternes, Bordeaux, France
An elegant yellow color with notes of candied apricot, honey and dried sweet stone fruit, this wine is complex and balanced. A pleasant lift of acidity on the finish.
BTG $10.00 Retail $21.99 375ml
