2012 Pazo del Rey Godello
Galicia, Spain
Pale gold. Complex scents of citrus zest, pear, flowers and smoky minerals. Fleshy orchard fruit flavors are firmed by juicy acidity and gain depth and spiciness with air. A ripe melon note comes up on the smooth, spicy, very persistent finish.

2013 Prisma Sauvignon Blanc
Casablanca, Chile
Hand-harvested, un-oaked, 100% Sauvignon Blanc is producedfrom a blend of three Casablanca Valley vineyards.
The sandy, clay soils and cool, coastal climate contribute to a bright, fresh character in the wine. Citrus notes of lemon,
lime, and grapefruit, combined with a mineral undertone lead to a crisp, elegant, and well-balanced finish.

2012 Saint-Roch Cotes du Rhone Grenache 60 %, Syrah : 25%, Mourvédre : 15%
Rhone Valley, France
Garnet red colour with violet highlights. A bouquet of small black fruits (black-currants, violet, murlberry and cooked sherry), this wine develops after a few years aromas of stone-fruits, kirch, leather and fur. Pleasantly powerfull, with generous tannins, this wine develops into more complex and rich flavours of stone-fruits with age. Tannins are very pleasant and well-balanced.

2013 Niel Granacha,Tintorera, Merlot
Castilla y Leon, Spain
Fermented in stainless steel and then aged for three months in older French oak): Opaque ruby. Black and blue fruits on the highly fragrant, smoke-accented nose. Juicy, penetrating blueberry and bitter cherry flavors display very good clarity and pick up sweetness and spiciness with air. Fine-grained tannins give shape and grip to the long, spicy finish. Superb value here. 90 Pts Stephen Tanzer

2011 Dona Silvina Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
Was sourced from a certified organic vineyard and aged in a mix of new and used French oak for 10-12 months before bottling without fining or filtration. Dark ruby red in color, it sports a pleasing perfume of balsam wood, cinnamon, violets, and black cherry. On the palate it displays a racy style with lively acidity and ample spicy fruit. Savory, ripe, and intense, this is a stylish effort. 90 Pts Wine Advocate
