2013 Chloe Chardonnay
Sonoma, California
A tasty, under-the-radar, sleeper selection, Chole’s 2012 Chardonnay is a great value. Notes of orange blossoms, white currants, and delicate pineapple are presented in a medium-bodied, fresh, creamy, elegant style. 89 Pts Robert Parker
BTG $6.50 Retail $14.99

2013 Chloe Pinot Noir
Monterey, Central Coast, California
A delicious, easy-drinking Pinot Noir that delivers the goods for not much buck, was raised in French oak. Giving up lots of juicy Bing cherry, strawberry and spice, this medium-bodied, rounded, well-made and thoroughly enjoyable effort will drink well for 2-3 years. It’s a killer value. 88 Pts Wine Advocate

2012 Koyle Carmenere Grand Reserve
Rapel, Chile
Firm and savory, with dense dark fruit flavors dominated by roasted plum and dark currant fruit, accented by notes of mocha and savory herb. Offers bittersweet chocolate details on the minerally finish, with some cedary overtones. 89 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.50 Retail $17.99

2013 Substance Cabernet
Columbia Valley, Washington
This is about as good a value in Cabernet as you’re likely to find. Coming from sites spread throughout the Columbia Valley and aged in barrel, it offers terrific notes of currants, black raspberry, wild herbs, graphite and toast to go with a medium to full-bodied, ripe, concentrated and balanced style on the palate. While it’s hard to resist now, it’s no simple fruit bomb and has the depth and class to evolve nicely for at least 4-5 years, and most likely longer. 90Pts Wine Advocate
