2015 Villa Wolf Pinot Gris
Rhine river valley southwest Germany
Refreshing and full of vitality, this Pinot Gris offsets zesty white grapefruit flavor with a sheen of fresh herb and floral notes. It’s a dry, elegant wine, with broad appeal and a youthful vigor.

2015 Inama Soave Classico
Venato, Italy
Garganega 100%
Bright lemon, crushed rocks, nectarine, ash and white flowers jump from the glass. This is Inama’s brightest and most focused white. All the elements fall into place in a gracious, delicious Soave to drink now and over the next few years.

2013 Capcanes Mas Donis Barrica
Montsant, Spain
Inky ruby. Heady, primary aromas of fresh red fruits, peppery spices, violet and smoky minerals. On the palate, lively, sharply focused raspberry and cherry-cola flavors are underscored by a pronounced mineral quality and building spiciness. Silky tannins give shape to a long, incisive finish that clings impressively and leaves a sexy red fruit liqueur note behind. This wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak for nine months. The bang for the buck with this wine is pretty nuts.

2012 La Spinetta Nero di Casanova
Tuscany, Italy
100% Sangiovese
Lots of candied-orange, dark-fruit and dried-flower on the nose full body with soft, silky tannins and a chewy finish, funky and intense, lots of berry and dark-chocolate character, elegant and delicious richness.

2011 Milbrandt Sentinel Northridge Vineyard Blend
Wahluke Slope, Washington
A Cabernet-based blend, with Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot, this offers pleasing aromatic complexity, with notes of coffee, dark fruit and vanilla, accented by floral overtones. The palate is full bodied, with abundant coffee and cherry flavors backed by firm tannins.
