6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2014 Ch Guirauton Graves Blanc
Bordeaux, France
A traditional blend of about 65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Semillon that sees little or no oak. Nicely complex aromas of fresh green grass, lemon and orange citrus, with a hint of wet wool – the classic smell of Semillon. Clean and fresh and very brisk on the palate with the juicy fruit taking center stage up front and then loads of citrus and a bright mineral note emerging on the back.
BTG $6.50 Retail $14.99

2013 VAJRA Langhe Rosso
Piemonte, Italy
Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera which blend with small quantities of Albarossa, Freisa and Pinot Noir.
A hue of violet red. Aromas of red fruits, plums, underbrush as well as oral and spicy fragrances intrigue your senses from the very first moment. A nice correspondence on the palate where hints of almond, black pepper and Asian spices come together for a nice refreshing finish.
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99

2011 Bodegas Izadi Reserva
Rioja, Spain
A 100% Tempranillo aged 14 months in American and French oak, the 2011 Reserva is an outstanding value showing beautiful black and red currant fruits, high-quality, unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice and loamy soil undertones. Deep, medium to full-bodied, very pure, rich and concentrated, this is a gorgeous wine to drink over the next 3-4 years. 92 pts Robert Parker

2014 Slingshot Cabernet
Napa Valley, Ca
Complex yet approachable, Slingshot has a bouquet of ripe raspberry, blueberry and plum. The palate is full and textured with notes of chocolate and wild currents, while balancing acidity and chewy tannins. The finish lingers with subtle notes of French oak. Slingshot is crafted to complement, not over-power, making this a welcome addition to any meal.

2013 Jim Barry Shiraz The Lodge Hill Shiraz
Clare Valley, South Australia, Australia
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2013 Shiraz The Lodge Hill is redolent of eucalyptus, Chinese five spice, blackberries, black cherries and pepper hints, then fills the medium to full-bodied palate with a good amount of chewy tannins and plenty of spicy black fruit before ending medium to long in the finish. 90 Pts Wine Advocate
