6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2014 Domaine Du Salvard Cheverny
Loire Valley, France
85% Sauvignon Blanc 15% Chardonnay
Supple and elegant, this Cheverny is a true classic. Boasting exquisite balance between the roundness of Chardonnay and the zestiness of Sauvignon Blanc, the flavours here are clean and refreshing with a creamy mid-palate and an aromatic finish.
BTG $6.50 Retail $14.99

2014 PAZO TORRADO Albariño
Rias Baixas, Spain
This is classic Albariño; it has mineral, citrus and ocean aromas. These scents are backed by a round but fit palate with leesy freshness and flavors of apple, lime and natural vanilla.
BTG $6.25 Retail $13.99

Rioja, France
This dense red is rich with plum, currant and mineral flavors, accented by strong toast and smoky notes. Lively acidity balances the muscular tannins. Powerful, but leaves a juicy, floral finish. 91 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $11.50 Retail $29.99

Douro, Portugal
A big, strapping red, with well-rounded flavors of boysenberry and roasted plum, accented by concentrated spice and green olive notes. The finish lengthens out, with accents of dried beef and hoisin sauce. 90 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $8.25 Retail $19.99

2012 Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Estate
Maipo, Chile
Aged in French barrels for one year. In this warm vintage they harvested three weeks before the normal date by tasting the grapes and without knowing it, they ended up harvesting at more or less the same amount of accumulated temperature as in previous years. It has a fresh, herbal, aromatic nose with notes of spices (paprika, black pepper) and pine nuts, with bright red fruit. Fluid, terse, and medium-bodied, with good freshness and very fine tannins, this is a great Cabernet at a great price. 90 pts Robert Parker
BTG $7.25 Retail $16.99
