With only a handful of exceptions, Italy’s most stylish, highest quality white wines come from Friuli Grave. This Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most vibrant and aromatic wines with fresh flavors of peach blossom and citrus fruits. Shows an intense and persistent aromas with a pleasant and velvety body on the palate.

Languedoc Roussillon, France
A fabulous rose that’s perfect for hot summer day quaffing (I know, as I go through more than a case every year), the 2013 Coteaux du Languedoc Prestige Rose is a direct press of 70% Grenache and 30% Cinsault aged all in stainless steel vats. Very light pink in color, it gives up fresh, crisp aromas of rose petal, white peach and hints of melon in its medium-bodied, clean, elegant and hard-to-resist personality. Buy it by the case and enjoy it over the coming summer months. 91 Pts Wine Advocate

2013 Paraiso Pinot Noir

Serves up a trim, flavorful band of ripe cherry, wild berry and strawberry jam that’s elegantly styled and well-structured, finishing with a long, complex finish echoing anise and mineral.

2012 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon
Mendoza, Argentina
Bright medium-deep red. Subtly complex aromas of plum, raspberry, currant, mocha, graphite and nutty oak. At once plush and suave in the mouth, showing a light touch and a restrained sweetness to its sappy flavors of redcurrant and minerals. Not a fat style but finishes vibrant and long, with a fine dusting of tannins. Tanzer 91 points

2012 Ancient Peaks Zinfandel
Paso Robles, CA
Supple and well-structured, yet appealingly briary, with smoky, peppery wild berry aromas and ripe, layered flavors of black cherry, sage and licorice that linger nicely.
