NV LUCIEN ALBRECHT Crémant d’Alsace Brut Rose
Alsace, France
100% Pinot Noir The flavors display nice strawberry and wild cherry fruit, with a touch of richness on the mid palate. It is balanced with dry, crisp acidity and complimented with a creamy texture and long finish.
BTG $8.25 Retail $19.99

2014 Goldwater Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand
Pale, bright yellow. Classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc scents of grapefruit zest, lime, kiwi, fresh herbs and white pepper, complicated by a pungent quinine note; rather Chablis-like. Dry and fine-grained, with brisk mineral-driven acidity keeping the wine’s lime, ripe grapefruit and white peach flavors under wraps today. Terrific texture and lift here. Finishes with very good subtle length. 90 Pts Stephen Tanzer
BTG $8.00 Retail $18.99

2013 Belle Glos Las Alturas Pinot Noir
Santa Lucia Highlands, Central Coast Pinot Noir
Spares no expense, with lavish smoky, black licorice-scented oak framing a rich core of dark berry, anise, boysenberry and savory herb notes. Full-blown and expressive through the persistent and mouthcoating finish. 93 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $15.00 Retail $39.99

2011 ABADIA RETUERTA Selección Especial
Castilla y León Sardon de Duero, Spain
Alluring for its plush texture and impressive for its depth, this red delivers plum, currant, licorice, tar and mineral flavors that are rich and focused. The firm tannins are well-integrated, kept lively by fresh acidity. Smoke and floral notes mingle on the long finish. 94 Pts Wine Spectator

2012 Department 66 Cotes Catalanes Grenache D66
Languedoc Roussillon, France
80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Carignan that was brought up in small barrels, 30% being new. Full-bodied, rich, sexy and yet still with solid focus and length, it has fabulous kirsch, dried herbs, licorice and chocolaty nuances all soaring from the glass. Long, heady and hedonistic, enjoy this beauty over the coming 4-5 years. 92 Pts Wine Advocate
