2015 Colome Torrontes
Salta, Argentina
Torrontés is the white icon grape of Argentina and it reaches its maximum splendor in the north of Argentina. The special microclimate of the Calchaquí Valley brings great thermal amplitude and higher solar exposure; thus, grapes develop unique aromas and a great freshness and excellent acidity. Colomé Torrontés is a delicate, elegant and distinguished interpretation of this variety, with floral notes of roses combined with citrus aromas and a spicy hint, making it ideal to match with ethnical food, such as mexican, peruvian and seafood. 90 Pts Wine & Spirits, 90 Pts Stephen Tanzer

2014 Mommessin Bourgogne Chardonnay
Burgundy, France
A great introduction to white Burgundy; from the Burgundy region, one of the rarest regional appellations in France, this is a refreshing Chardonnay sure to satisfy as an apertif or alongside your favorite fish. Very expressive nose which opens with notes of flower and honey, then it gives off aromas of fresh fruits. Franck attack and perfectly balanced acidity. The wine releases classical citrus aromas, candied-fruits, vanilla and acacia flowers notes.

2014 Frescobaldi Tenuta Castiglioni
Tuscany, Italy
Bright cherry fruit leads the way, accented by notes of earth and spice, revealing a moderately firm structure for support. Elegant overall, with a savory element kicking in as this lingers. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese.

2015 Amalaya Malbec
Salta, Argentina
85% Malbec, 10% Tannat, 5% Syrah
The harvest of 2015 was a very good one – low rain and good sun during ripening. A touch of Tannat is added for its floral characters and good structure and Syrah for spice notes in the final blend. The wine is intense and deep ruby in color, accented by purple hues. A bright nose of raspberries and strawberries, with notes of violet and white pepper is followed by black and blue fruit flavors with good complexity and excellent structure. This is a wine ready to enjoy.

2013 Brown Family Cabernet
Walla Walla, Washington
Inky red, almost black in color, this classic Cabernet Sauvignon is heavily concentrated with ripe cherry aromas and dark fruit flavors, backed by vanilla oak notes. Layered with texture that belies its silky smooth tannins, this wine’s perfectly balanced alcohol and bright, clean acidity make it a perfect companion for red meat and savory dishes. 90 Pts Wine Spectator
