6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

NV Fiol Prosecco
Veneto, Italy
The extra dry Prosecco FIOL shows a light straw color, a typical bouquet reminiscent of wisteria flowers, acacia and also mature crab apple. With a shrewdly contained alcohol, acidity, lively but not overbearing it delivers freshness and palatability, savory and a slightly sweeter taste, contributing even more to preserve that character so appealing and inviting.
BTG $7.75 Retail $18.99

2014 Leth Gruner Vetliner
Niederosterreich, Austria
A very subtle nose slowly reveals peppery ivy notes and freshly cut peel of Conference pear. This is altogether very subtle but no less intriguing with a central thread of pure citrus focus. There is concentration and a lovely lick of enticing fresh pear fruit. Beautiful!

2014 BOEKENHOUTSKLOOF Wolftrap Red Blend
Western Cape, South Africa
A soft, friendly style, with a lightly toasty shell around a core of gentle plum, white pepper and melted red licorice notes. The fruit lingers well. A crowd-pleaser. 88 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $5.25 Retail $9.99

2013 Bodega Colome Malbec
Salta, Argentina
This bursts with fresh, pure-tasting flavors of raspberry, blackberry and roasted plum, supported by firm acidity and tannins. Notes of slate and black pepper show midpalate, with a finish that offers dark chocolate accents. 90 pts Wine Spectator and Wine Advocate
BTG $9.50 Retail $24.99

2013 Tenuta Dell Ornellaia Le Volte
Tuscany, Italy
A blend of Merlot (50%), Sangiovese (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%),
Dark flavors of black cherry and blackberry pick up a pleasant leafy edge as this juicy red stretches out on the finish. Needs time to integrate, with a long aftertaste of fruit and mineral. 90 Pts Wine Spectator, 90 Pts Robert Parker
BTG $10.50 Retail $27.99
