NV Bodegas Pinord Cava Dibon Brut Reserve
Penedes, Spain
The non-vintage Cava Dibon Brut Reserve is based on the classic Cava grape varieties with a secondary fermentation after 16 months in bottle. It has a nice bouquet that has pleasant, light floral aromas. The palate has a crisp citric entry with touches of Clementine and grapefruit with fine delineation towards the fresh, apple-y finish. 88 pts Wine Spectator
BTG $6.00 Retail $11.99

2013 Penner-Ash Rubeo
Newberg, Oregon
70% Pinot Noir, 30% Syrah
Bright core of cranberry and plum is rounded out by dark violet and rich leather aromatics. A sweetly textured palate of briar fruit and black cherry layered with savory herbs and a suggestion of wet slate on the finish.
BTG $10.00 Retail $25.99

2014 CHAPPELLET MTN CUVEE PROPRIETOR BLEND
Napa Valley, California
43% Merlot 34% Cabernet Sauvignon 11% Petit Verdot 7% Malbec 5% Cabernet Franc
The aromas are rich and enticing, with concentrated layers of blueberry and blackberry, as well as notes of baking spice and toasted wood from aging in French oak barrels. Subtle hints of dark chocolate, bay leaf and black pepper round out the aromas. On the plush, rich palate, this wine is immediately hedonistic and satisfying. Mouthcoating ┬Čavors of black cherry and cassis are layered with clove and vanilla, while integrated tannins give balance and structure to this complex blend of Bordeaux varietals.
BTG $11.25 Retail $29.99

2014 ROBERT BIALE ZINFANDEL BLACK CHICKEN
Napa Valley, California
The 2014 Zinfandel Black Chicken (its name coming from the code name used when ordering a jug of Zinfandel during the Prohibition era) is another relatively big-boned Zinfandel at 15.3% alcohol. Gorgeously proportioned, textured and almost chewy, this stunningly hedonistic and fleshy, flamboyant Zinfandel delivers abundant glycerin, fruit, quality and personality. 94 Pts Robert Parker
BTG $14.25 Retail $39.99

2013 ANCIENT PEAKS RENEGADE RED
Paso Robles, California
The components of this blend change every year, and this vintage of 93% Syrah, 4% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot shows black cherry paste, crushed purple flowers and vanilla. Juicy blueberry and blackberry decorate the lavish palate, which is lifted by thyme and mint herbs. 93 Pts Wine Enthusiast
