90 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99

2014 Michael Pozzan Chardonnay
Russian River, CA
The aromas are tropical with ripe mango and pineapple notes and backed with light vanilla. The palate is rich with citrus and peach flavors – followed by rich vanilla and crème brulee flavors. A burst of clove finishes with passion fruit and mandarin flavors While the wine was barrel fermented in both new and seasoned French oak, it is harmonious and integrated in its generous oak profile
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99

2008 Ramirez de la Piscina Rioja Reserva
Rioja, Spain
The rich chocolaty, coffee bean, earthy, tobacco leaf, and black cherry and blackcurrant fruit of the 2008 Reserva are endearing. A sexy, lush style of wine with excellent density, full body and essentially mature aromas and flavors, this wine spent 18 months in French and American oak and an additional two years in bottle prior to release. 92 pts Wine Spectator
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2013 Finca Sophenia Cabernet
Mendoza, Argentina
Shows focused varietal notes, a mixture of pepper and blackberries with a light lactic note. The palate is velvety with good freshness, no oak to be found (the wine matured in well-seasoned barrels and it shows), good acidity and length. This tastes more expensive than it is. 90pts Wine Spectator
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99

2012 Gen 5 Zinfandel
Lodi, Ca
90 year-old estate vineyard imparts intensity, while the 20 year-old estate vineyard produces bright fruit. Lush and juicy black and blue berries and a note of spice and licorice, with a lush mouthfeel.
BTG $6.00 Retail $12.99
