2013 Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand
Opening with pronounced capsicum and vegetal notes amid an underlying apple and gooseberry core that is accented by a waft of wet pebbles, the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc delights with delicate flavors of pea pods, herbs and green apples plus a real pebbly character coming through in the long finish. 91 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2012 Alias Chardonnay
Mendocino and Monterey, California
Nose: Lemons, peaches, banana, tropical fruits, creaminess, a hint of coconut and vanilla oak. Mouth: great citrus and tropical fruit characters come together in a creamy, crisp, lushness. There is just enough oak to give it a touch of toasted bread and vanilla.
BTG $5.25 Retail $9.99

2009 Moshin “Molinari Vyd” Pinot Noir
Sonoma, California
Bright aromas of cherry, tea leaf and spices, – followed by flavors of red fruits, pomegranate and cranberry. Firm tannins and good acidity make this wine a fine choice for the cellar as well as the table.
BTG $9.25 Retail $23.99

2008 Vivanco Crianza
Rioja, Spain
100% Tempranillo and aged for 16 months in French and American oak. Balsam wood, tobacco, cinnamon, clove, violets, and black fruit aromas lead to a ripe, sweetly-fruited, nicely proportioned. 90Pts Wine Advocate

2011 Tait ” The Ballbuster”
Barossa Valley, Australia
75% shiraz, 22% cabernet sauvignon and 3% merlot: Deep ruby. Dark berry compote, licorice and woodsmoke on the assertively perfumed nose.
