2013 Domaine Du Salvard Cheverny
Loire, France
85% Savignon Blanc, 15% Chardonnay
Fresh, lively, and fragrant with aromas of citrus fruit, and sweet morning dew. Green orchard fruits, lemon/lime, and bright minerality on the palate. Dry yet expansive with a round mouth-feel.
BTG $6.00 Retail $12.99

2012 Selvapiana Chianti Rufina
Tuscany, Italy
Evolved, the wine drinks easily and would pair with hearty pasta and meat sauce. The freshness of the acidity is all you need to cut through the grated Parmigiano cheese. This wine shows a deeply perfumed quality with pressed rose and cherry blossom. Mild coffee and tobacco appear on the close. 89 pts Wine Advocate

2008 BODEGAS J. RAMÍREZ Rioja Ramírez de la Piscina Reserva
Rioja, Spain
This harmonious red delivers black cherry, mineral, licorice and orange peel flavors, supported by well-integrated tannins and firm acidity. A bit reserved now, but balanced with good depth. 92 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2012 Eberle, Zinfandel
Paso Robles, California
Supple and jammy, with floral black raspberry aromas and savory flavors of cherry pie, cinnamon and licorice that linger on the spiced vanilla tannins. 90 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $9.25 Retail $23.99

2011 Casey Flat Ranch Estate Red
Capay Valley, California
Engagingly complex, with a mix of black licorice, crushed rock, loamy earth, cedar, tobacco and graphite notes, all folding together and ending with a long, full finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Mourvèdre. 90 PtsWine Spectator
