Flavors present incredible intensity of grapefruit, lime and lemon zest, all with a subtle thread of fennel. The 2014 vintage produced a powerful and intense Sauvignon Blanc.

2012 Mercer Cabernet
Columbia Valley, Washington
76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Syrah, 7% Merlot, 4% Other. Aromas of black cherry, dark plum, and blackberry jam are elevated with hints of brown sugar, clove and cocoa. The lush fruit continues in the palate, contributing to the round and full mouthfeel. Well integrated oak and sleek tannins lead into a velvety finish with a nice touch of acidity on the end. This wine is a lovely balance of power and grace. 90 Pts Wine Spectator

2013 The Rule Cabernet
Napa Valley, Ca
Aged in 100% French oak for 18 months before being blended with small lots of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot.
Strawberry, Currant, Vanilla and Tobacco are ingrained in the initial aromas of this Cabernet. The palate evolves into a lush combination of Red Vines, black cherry and cigar box. This wine has aging potential but you will not be disappointed if enjoyed sooner than later.
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2012 Moss Roxx Zinfandel
Lodi, Ca
This is not your everyday wine. A big flavorful Zinfandel from Lodi’s half to century year-old vines. A dense and dark red wine. Mature round tannins accenting generous cherry, raspberry, chocolate, caramel, and baking spice with a smooth, long finish. This Zinfandel is truly a delectable expression of Lodi’s signature terroir.
BTG $9.00 Retail $22.99
