2014 Juan Gil
Jumilla, Spain
This aromatic white has alluring notes of orange blossom, lychee, tangerine and pine, but remains crisp and dry thanks to firm acidity. Expressive, showing the focus and liveliness to match with food. 88pts Wine Spectator
BTG $6.00 Retail $12.99

2013 Light Horse Cabernet
Intense ruby in color, this Cabernet features a redolent bouquet of cassis, blueberry, plum, fig, vanilla, mocha and a touch of tobacco. Delectable berry flavors are supported by refreshing acidity which runs through the mid-palate and melts into a long finish. Soft tannins provide a smooth texture, with a touch of oak contributing appealing spice notes to the wine.
BTG $6.25 Retail $13.99

2013 Bodega Garzon Tannat
This elegant and powerful wine opens with beautiful aromas of raspberry and red cherry followed by delicious flavors of black plum, rhubarb and tobacco mixed with dark chocolate and white pepper. It has a finish that presents a brilliant tension between silky tannins and supple fruit. 89 Pts wine Spectator
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99

2011 Waterbrook Merlot
Columbia Valley, Washington
Aromas and flavors of raspberry and white chocolate give a burst of red fruit on the palate, followed by a long toasty oak finish. Medium, well-supported tannins are balanced with bright acidity. The alcohol gives this wine the perfect weight and a slight sweetness.

2012 Black Pearl Mischief Maker
Paarl, South Africa
A blend of 85% Shiraz and 15% Mourvedre and those varieties work together well on the nose with blackberry, singed leather and a touch of balsam. The palate is medium-bodied with well-judged acidity, plush red cherry and strawberry fruit, hints of white pepper and sage toward the harmonious finish. This is definitely one of the better Rhône blends from Paarl and comes recommended at this price.
