NV Bisol Jeio Prosecco
Northeast, Italy
A brilliant straw yellow and an extremely fine and vivacious with a fruitiness emerging – pleasing, fresh and elegant. The blend is 90% Prosécco, 6% Pinot Bianco and 4% Verdiso. A notably “brut” personality. 89pts Wine Advocate
BTG $7.00 Retail $16.99

2013 Grgich Hills Fume Blanc
Napa, Ca
Using naturally occurring yeasts found on the grapes, fermented in French oak casks that were temperature-controlled for a cool fermentation to retain all of the grapes’ delicate aromas. Using the best lots of the vintage and aged nine months. Aging in large casks adds another layer of complexity and texture while highlighting the wonderful aromatics of tropical guava, lime zest and rose petals. The full mouthfeel, mouth-watering acidity and persistent finish. 91 Pts Wine Enthusiast

2013 Garnet Pinot Noir
Monterey, CA
This is a Pinot with elegance and extract, but also with a lush body and silky texture. Aromas include ripe blackberries, cherry preserves, vanilla hazelnuts and toasted French oak. Velvety richness of the attack. The flavors of dark red fruits and exotic spices just make this a juicy, delicious mouthful of wine.
BTG $6.50 Retail $14.99

2011 Bodgas Caro Amancaya
Mendoza, Argentina
A blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon and shows a classical profile of tobacco, cedar wood, balsam and perfectly ripe fruit. It has great balance and integration of fruit, oak and acidity, it has no edges and drinks beautifully now, but has the stuffing to last well.

2012 The Prisoner Wine Co “Cuttings” Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Zinfandel.
Napa Valley, Ca
Powerful and structured, the wine features intense aromas of ripe plum reduction layered with hints of cocoa powder and cigar box. Velvety with dense flavors of black cherry, cola and freshly roasted coffee beans which lead to soft tannins and a plush, lengthy finish.
