NV Antoine Muller Brut Rose
Alsace, France
It is fruity and complex; a great value! The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks before being put in bottles to form its bubbles through the methode traditionnelle. It is aged for a minimum of 9 months to ensure that the lees impart the maximum aromas and finesse to this excellent brut! Delicate almond fragrance with undertones of hazelnut, subtle touch of clove and lime tree. Crisp and elegant.

Spicy and complex. With olives, lavender and a soft meaty palate. Very well balanced.
A charming wine with a bounty of fruit, soft tannins, and an overall roundness that allows for easy drinking

2012 Estampa Reserve Carmenere Assemblage, Carmenère-Syrah-Cabernet Sauvignon
Colghagua, Chile
Deep red with violet hues. Intense aromas of fresh fruits, like raspberries, with herbs and coffee.
The flavours follow through on the aromas, with notes of ripe red fruit, spices and bitter chocolate. The predominance of Carmenere in this assemblage creates an elegant wine that is both concentrated and juicy with a lingering finish. 91 Wine Enthusiast

2011 Leret Monpezat Malbec Reserve
Cahor, France
Deep, rich color of impressive density. The powerful tannins are softened by well-integrated oak from aging in new barrels. Redolent of black currant and has plenty of body and good length.

2008 DiamAndes Gran Reserve 66% malbec, 17% cabernet, 7% merlot, 7% syrah and 3% petit verdot
Mendoza, Argentina
Bright, saturated ruby-red. Complex nose melds currant, black cherry, truffle, soy sauce, mocha and tobacco leaf. Sweet, suave and seamless, but with lovely vinosity shaping the flavors of currant, black cherry, truffle, spices and nutty oak. This wine’s ripe, harmonious acidity gives it elegance. Finishes with sweet tannins that coat the front teeth and lingering notes of fruits, spices and earth.
