2014 Argiolas Vermentino di Sardinia
Sardinia, Italy
This fresh, outgoing white opens with enticing aromas of Spanish broom, citrus and tropical fruit. The round, generous palate doles out juicy yellow peach and ripe apricot while chopped mint and a eucalyptus note provide backup.

2013 Michel Gassier Costieres de Nimes Nostre Pais
Languedoc Roussillon, France
60% Grenache Blanc (always from the same parcel) and the rest Clairette, Roussanne and Viognier. Fermented one-third in barrel and aged eight months on lees, it offers fabulous notes of stone fruits, buttered citrus, white flowers and honeysuckle to go with a medium-bodied, fresh, lively and pure style. While it doesn’t skimp on texture, the focus is more on freshness and purity. 92 Pts Wine Advocate

2013 Vina Leyda Las Brisas Vineyard Pinot Noir
San Antonio, Chile
Elegant and rich-tasting, with concentrated cherry and red currant flavors, loaded with sandalwood notes. Shows plenty of vibrant spiciness midpalate, with a well-structured and minerally finish. 91 pts Wine Spectator

2013 Tasca Conti d’Almerita Sicilia Nero d’Avola Lamùri Tenuta Regaleali
Sicily, Italy
An impressive achievement. Grapes are sourced from vineyards between 450 and 750 meters above sea level and the wine is aged in mostly neutral oak (with 20% new oak) for one year. The high altitude vineyards have shaped the focused and linear aromas of wild berry and dried cherry. The wood regime has added delicate layers of carob seed and powdered chocolate. This is a very exciting vintage of Lamùri, thanks to its overall balance and intensity.

2012 EL Enemigo Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
A svelte style, with rich, well-rounded flavors of dark currant, cherry and pomegranate, accented by some kirsch notes. Rich and loamy midpalate, offering a broad, well-spiced finish that features touches of elegance and silky tannins. 92 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $10.00 Retail $26.99
