2014 Milbrandt The Estates Evergreen Vineyard Chardonnay
Columbia Valley, Washington
Aromas of ripe pear, baked apple and wet stone. This wine offers a generous entry leading to a full round, creamy midpalate, and a hint of vanilla on the long lingering finish. 90 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2014 Chateau Pesquie Ventoux Cuvee des Terrasses
Ventoux, Southern Rhone, Rhone, France
Always a terrific value, the 2014 Ventoux Terrasses is no exception and offers complex, classic southern Rhone notes of dried garrigue, pepper, spice-box, licorice and sweet cherry fruit. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, elegant and balanced red that gains depth and richness with time in the glass, has loads Provencal character and a great finish. Made from a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that was aged in tank and old barrels. 91 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $7.00 Retail $16.99

2014 Gran Passione Veneto Rosso Appassimento
Gran Passione has an intense purple color. It is full-bodied and rich with dark fruit flavors of blackberry and black cherry balanced by a solid structure due to the elevated alcohol, acidity and soft tannins. It’s a great wine for roasted and grilled meats, stews and other rich dishes. Also excellent with mature hard cheeses. An appassimento style wine made from 60% Merlot, 40% Corvina.
BTG $6.25 Retail $13.99

2013 Trentadue La Storia Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
Northern Sonoma, North Coast, California
A dense ruby-purple color followed by abundant varietal aromas and flavors of blueberry, blackberry and black licorice with a hint of herbs and ripe olives. The predominately French oak aging contributes aromas of cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa dust and slight smokiness. The mouth feel is fresh and juicy with balanced acidity and very soft tannins for a yong wine. The alcohol content is modest and acidity is relatively high suggesting excellent longevity for this wine, 91 Pts Robert Parker
BTG $11.00 Retail $29.99
