2012 Peju Merlot
Napa Valley, Ca

2013 Peirano Cabernet
Lodi, Ca
The rich, dark color of this wine catches you from the first pour. It exhibits a rich deep burgundy hue with perfect clarity. The aromas are a compendium of zesty black cherries, cola, and toasty cocoa. The first initial sip fills the mouth with sweet anise, black boysenberry, cherry, anise, molasses, and baked blackberry pie, while maintaining absolute dryness and firm, round, yet supple, tannins. This delicious rich, full, mouth filling Cabernet is ready to drink now and will continue to age gracefully for the next 6 to 8 years.
BTG $6.25 Retail $12.99

2012 Mettler Zinfandel
Lodi, Ca
Draws you in with its deep, opaque garnet color. Enticing aromas of dried red currant, brambly blackberry and vanilla delight the senses. An impressive concentration of flavors offer waves of sweet raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry pie, enriched by notes of sweet tobacco, pepper and hints of cola. Silky, plush tannins float through the lingering finish, balanced by light touch of acidity. This wine has the elegance and balance of a fine Cabernet, yet retains the juicy, exuberant personality that is uniquely Zinfandel.
BTG $8.75 Retail $21.99
