6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2013 Suavia Soave Classico
Veneto, Italy
Well-balanced and fresh, with a creamy palate of ripe pear and apricot fruit, showing slivered almond, lemon curd and smoke notes. Lightly spiced, ending with a lively finish. 88 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.00 Retail $16.99

2014 Paul Cherrier Sancerre Blanc
Loire Valley, France
Zesty lime and chive notes are set off against a flinty finish. Light, but fresh and mouthwatering, this is a beautiful expression of the Sancerre terrior.
BTG $9.00 Retail $22.99

2011 Bodegas J. Ramirez Rioja Ramírez de la Piscina Crianza
Rioja, Spain
A polished texture carries harmonious flavors of plum, dark chocolate, licorice and mineral in this solid red. Firm and fresh, this is not showy but has the structure to match with food. 89 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99

2010 La Valentina 2010 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Spelt
Tuscany, Italy
Good dark ruby. Enticing scents of crushed blackberry, licorice and spices, plus a whiff of flint. Broad and pliant, with perfumed dark berry, licorice and flint flavors spreading out to coat the palate. Finishes smooth and long, with complex notes of pepper and herbs. 92 Pts Vinous
BTG $9.00 Retail $22.99

2011 Bodegas Ordonez Ribera del Duero Avante
Ribera del Duero, Spain
Coffee and licorice notes frame plum and blackberry flavors in this solid red. Chewy tannins and balsamic acidity give structure. The wine stays fresh through the floral, spicy finish. 90 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99
