NV Charles Lafitte Rose Prestige
40% Chardonnay 30% Pinot Noir 30% Pinot Meunier, with 16% Bouzy red wine
A bright and crystal clear, deep salmon pink with light and fleeting coppery highlights. An ample bubble chain, unbroken and long lasting. Fresh, very pure and really elegant, the nose brings out clean, delicate and engaging fragrances of freshly picked red fruits (wild strawberries, raspberries and blackberries). A full, tasty and smooth impact. The mouth reflects great continuity with the fruits unveiled by the nose, developing towards smooth and warm flavors. A clean and long finish enhanced by a floral touch of dried rose petals.

2013 Sauvion Muscadet Sevre Et Maine
Loire Valley, France
Light, easy to drink and thirst quenching, clean and refreshing. Aromas of mint and green apples give way to flavors which are bone dry and snappy. A fruity Muscadet, it shows delicious citrus and green apple freshness. It’s light, clean, totally dry and equally ready to drink. Sauvion are long-time experts in Muscadet, and it shows in this refreshing wine.

2012 Recuerdo Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
Has a complex bouquet of dried flowers, raspberries, blueberries and sweet vanilla. This pure Malbec from stony and sandy soils is aged in mostly third-use oak barrels with some wine kept in vats in order to preserve the fruit and freshness of the wine. The palate is medium-bodied, with great acidity and freshness, pure, focused flavors and great length. Superb for the price. 90 Pts Wine Advocate

2012 Tom Gore Cabernet
Sonoma, Ca
Tom Gore is a second generation grape farmer from Sonoma County and from the time he learned to walk, he was stomping alongside his dad, getting dirty, and taking care of the grapes. The Cabernet Sauvignon is dark red in color with aromas of currant and plum and wonderful hints of mocha and coffee on the palate. This wine is fruit forward with a supple mouthfeel and medium body.

2013 Divining Rod Divine Red
Lodi, Ca
Zinfandel, Cabernet & Petite Syrah Deep, rich, red color opens with aromas of blackberry, cedar and cinnamon. The blackberry and black pepper flavors are complemented by hints of plum and cassis, giving the wine depth and complexity. New French oak adds a pleasant mouth feel, texture and weight giving the right amount of influence to envelop the wine in a fitting tannic structure and a long finish that preserves the integrity and brightness of the Lodi fruit.
