45% Pinot Noir, 35% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay., all certified organic : Light gold. Fresh apple and lemon aromas and flavors are complemented by subtle floral and honey nuances.

2014 Astrolab Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand
With a pretty, relatively restrained lemon peel, grapefruit and fresh grass nose accented by hints of wet pebbles and pea pods, medium-bodied, has a nice grip of astringency to the texture and a lively acid backbone going long in the herbal-laced finish. 90 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $7.75 Retail $18.99

2012 Angels And Cowboys Red Blend
Sonoma, North Coast, California
Zinfandel , Syrah , Petite Verdot , Sangiovese, Petite Sirah and Malbec
A sexy 2012 Proprietary Red with lots of chocolate, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, a dark ruby/plum color, medium to full body, a velvety, opulent mouthfeel, and no hard edges, there is lots of interest and character in this juicy, succulent red. 88 Pts Robert Parker
BTG $7.75 Retail $18.99

2012 Casarena Reserve Sinergy
Mendoza, Argentina
70% malbec, 20% cabernet sauvignon, 7% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot
Saturated ruby-red. Reticent aromas of currant, pepper and herbs; showing its cabernet franc element today. Sappy, sweet and thick, with a saline reserve and herb-and-pepper lift to the red and black fruit flavors. Finishes with brisk tannins and very good length.
90 Pts Stephen Tanzer
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2012 Immortal Old Vines Zinfandel
Lodi, California
The color is truly Immortal. Its rich dark color goes on and on and on. The deceptively subtle aromas combine red current, raspberries, red cherries, with earthy cedar marrying together to put your olfactory senses into a new dimension. In the mouth, the palate is wrapped in a mysterious, velvety layered mix of raspberry cordial, sweet mouth filling red fruit, blackberry and red current, leading to a lengthy rich mouth filling almost breathless finish.
BTG $6.00 Retail 12.99
