2013 Richter ” Signature” Riesling
Mosel, Germany
Green apple & citrus notes on the palate with a lean & zesty raciness, a medium sweet style. A lovely, long, mineral finish.
BTG $6.50 Retail $14.99

2013 Mouton Noir “OPP” Pinot Noir
It is accessible, a great value, and stays true to the character of the vineyards from which it was born. Earthy, spicy, floral, herb-framed flavors of cherry with gingery wood spice tones.
BTG $9.50 Retail $24.99

2011 Luc Sebille Chinon (Cab Franc)
Loire Valley, France
Hand-harvested from 50 year-old vines. Spontaneous fermentation with a blend of carbonic and semi-carbonic maceration in cement tanks. This is gateway Chinon of an unusually velvety texture. Classic bell pepper flavors meld seamlessly with earthy umami accents. This is a fantastic bargain from a rising-star producer.
BTG $10.50 Retail $27.99

2011 Reto Vicentin Cabernet
Mendoza, Argentina
A juicy and lush red, with a bright savory note to the red currant, raspberry and black licorice flavors. Complex and briary accents linger on the supple, creamy finish.
BTG $5.75 Retail 11.99

2012 VIÑAS DEL CENIT Villano Tempranillo
Castilla y León , Spain
Smoky and tarry notes frame juicy plum and fresh herb flavors in this assertive red. A bit austere now, with firm tannins, but there’s good density and a core of fruit. 90 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99
