NV Leon Launois Brut Reserve
Champagne, France
60% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Meunier
A Cuvee quite fruity, charming and intense, with the subtle nose where the honey dominates, which associates elegance and roundness in mouth. Ideal Cuvee for aperitif. A very nice value for the price point and an exceptional pleasure.

2014 Terra Valentine Cabernet
Napa Valley, California
Pure and rich, with density, a firm tannic backbone and tiers of blackberry, wild berry, currant and black licorice flavors. This veers toward the dry side, but ends with cedary oak grip and a kick of fruit. Drink now through 2028.

2013 Halter Ranch Cabernet
Paso Robles, California
78% Cabernet Sauvignon 13% Malbec 9% Petit Verdot
Saturated ruby. Smoke-accented aromas of blackberry and candied flowers pick up a hint of licorice and vanilla in the glass. Juicy red and dark fruit flavors gain sweetness and flesh with air while maintaining vivacity. Packs a solid punch but comes off as quite lithe, finishing with strong cut, very good persistence and smooth tannins that provide grip.
