2013 Bodegas Sierra Cantabria Selección
Rioja, Spain
Bright violet color. Deep, oak-spiced dark fruit aromas are lifted by a peppery element and a hint of candied flowers. The sweet, seamless palate displays pliant boysenberry and cherry-vanilla flavors braced by tangy acidity. Puts on weight with air, finishing sweet and long, with smooth tannins framing the wine’s dark fruit. This wine was aged in two-thirds American and one-third French oak barrels.
90 Pts Vinous

2014 Tua Rita Toscana Rosso dei Notri
Tuscany, Italy
This is vibrant, showing cherry, black currant, cedar and violet flavors matched to a medium-bodied frame. Harmonious and approachable now, but should improve over the short term. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. 91 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $8.50 Retail $21.99

2012 Silver Trident playing with Fire Red Blend
Napa Valley, California
40% Cabernet Sauvignon 40% Malbec 20% Syrah
The deep, dark garnet color is the harbinger of the bold ripe fruit aromas and flavors that have become the signature of the 2012 vintage in Napa Valley. Each swirl of the glass releases complex aromatic notes of ripe black fruit, black licorice, wet earth and sweet toasty oak. From your first sip through the seductive finish you will be rewarded with juicy blackberry, boysenberry and plums, all wrapped up in lush velvety tannins. 94 Pts SK
Retail $39.99
