2014 Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio Vigneti delle Dolomiti
Trentino/Alto Adige, Italy
Lightly floral and crisp, this racy white offers a minerally base note and a lively profile of lemon zest, peach skin and pickled ginger.
88pts Wine Spectator
BTG $6.50 Retail $14.99

2014 Solena Pinot Gris
Willamette Valley, Oregon
Fresh, juicy and light-footed, with exuberant tangerine and melon flavors on a sleek frame. 89 pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.75 Retail $18.99

2013 Massaya Le Colombier red blend
Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Tempranillo blend
An exotic, spicy, Rhone-inspired blend of Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Syrah. Rich aromas of morello cherry, cassis and cinnamon. Concentrated and ripe, with plenty of perfumed, violet character displaying notes of wild strawberry, cranberry cobbler leading to a crisp finish framed by fine tannins and an excellent length.
BTG $6.50 Retail $14.99

2012 PAUL BERTRAND Malbec de Cahors “Crocus”
Southwest France
Black violet with amethyst glimmers on the edge. Bright and floral nose, with rose petals, huckleberry pie, black plum skin and a hint of fresh cracked pepper. Expansive, juicy palate with huckleberry, raspberry and black cherry, finishing with a slate-like minerality. Weighty and well-structured, with chewy tannins.
BTG $9.25 Retail $23.99

2012 Tikves Bela Voda Proprietary Blend
Tastes like a top-quality Zinfandel from California with its briar, plum, licorice and underbrush-driven aromas and flavors. A blend of 50% Vranac and 50% Plavac that spent 15 months in 30% concrete tanks and 70% in new and 1-year-old barrels, enjoy this full-bodied, beautifully balanced and silky red over the coming 3-5 years. Although, in this case, I’d be shocked to see this not still going strong at age ten. It’s a smoking value. 92-94 pts Wine Advocate
BTG $9.50 Retail $24.99
