NV Dibon Cava
Light gold. Spicy, energetic aromas of pear, nectarine and lemon pith, along with a hint of candied ginger. Light-bodied, dry and focused, offering juicy orchard fruit flavors and gentle citrus bite. Flavorful and refreshingly bright Cava with good finishing precision and tangy persistence. 88 pts Stephen Tanzer
BTG $5.75 Retail $11.99

2013 Tournon Viognier/Marsanne
Mathilda Australia
Stacks a rich parfait of spicy pear and grapefruit flavors over lively acidity, stretching the structure into a supple wrapping. Impressive for the purity and precision of the flavors. 91 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99

2006 Vina Bujanda Reserve Rioja
Rioja, Spain
100% Tempranillo from Alta and Alavesa matured in American and French oak over 20 months. The nose is well-defined, with notes of wild strawberry, leather, sage and tobacco that speaks clearly of its place. The palate is also well-defined, with fine tannins and harmony: an elegant, focused Reserva with a satisfying, silky smooth finish. Excellent. 92 Pts Robert Parker
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2012 St Cosme St Joseph ( Syrah)
Northern Rhône, France
Warmed pain d’épices and mocha notes lead the way, followed by melted black licorice, fig paste and macerated black currant fruit. Dark and fleshy through the finish, with a lively anise element adding contrast and lift. 92 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $13.50 Retail 37.99

2012 Michael Pozzan Alexander Valley Cabernet
Sonoma, California
This super ripe Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Bordeaux style wine that has a dark plum color and very ripe black cherry and cassis aromas. Upon entry the wine is very concentrated and balanced in its acidity and tannin levels, the core is plush with Bing cherry, blueberry fruit and sappy French oak vanilla flavors. The finish is long with cassis, coffee, tobacco and coffee notes
