Tuesday October 4th 2016

2015 Astrolabe Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand
Impressive and delicious, evoking the supple, fleshy texture of biting into a ripe, white peach. Features plenty of mouthwatering acidity, along with lemon, ruby grapefruit and pineapple notes, accented by lemon verbena, sea salt and dried honeysuckle. Shows good persistence on the finish.

2014 Mount Eden Old Vines Chardonnay
Edna Valley, Central Coast, Ca
Pretty, understated and gracious. Pear, white flowers and sweet spices are all nicely delineated throughout in this super-attractive, mid-weight Chardonnay. Readers will have a hard time finding a better wine for the money.Quite simply, this is a fabulous wine for the money. 92 pts Vinous , Antonio Galloni

2014 Tridente Tempranillo
CASTILLA Y LEÓN, Spain
Glass-staining ruby. Highly perfumed black and blue fruit, incense and violet aromas pick up a suggestion of five-spice powder with air. Supple, seamless and concentrated, offering juicy boysenberry and floral pastille flavors and an enlivening jolt of white pepper. The tenacious floral finish is framed by velvety tannins. 91 Pts Vinous, Josh Raynolds
BTG $8.00 Retail $18.99

2014 Casa Del Bosque Grand Reserve Cabernet
Valle de Casablanca, Chile
Dense ruby red in color, on the nose this wine exhibits lifted notes of rum & raisin and dark chocolate with just a touch of spearmint. In the mouth fresh acidity gives way to opulent notes of blackcurrant, expresso bean and cedar. A well integrated oak backbone combines with svelte, elegant tannins to give a long, textured finish. 94 Pts James Suckling
BTG $7.00 Retail $15.99

2012 Mount Eden Domaine Cabernet
Edna Valley, Ca
This remains one of the real undiscovered gems in California. Plump, juicy and exuberant, the 2012 offers gorgeous breath and intensity throughout. Red-fleshed fruit, sweet spices, mocha and flowers are all pushed forward. The interplay of expressive, pliant fruit and classic struture is compelling. Readers can look forward to another decade or so of fine drinking. 92 Pts Vinous, Antonio Galloni
BTG $13.75 Retail $37.99
