2015 Clean Slate Riesling
Mosel, Germany
The fresh, balanced taste of clean slate is achieved by carefully selecting grapes from vineyards throughout the Mosel. The steep blue slate slopes of the Lower Mosel give the wine its minerality while the Middle Mosel provides a hint of spice to complement the characteristic fresh peach flavors of the Upper Mosel Ripe peach flavors balance ripe acidity, hints of lime and characteristic mineral notes. Pairs beautifully with spicy cuisines,
Asian, Tex-Mex, Indian, and sushi.

2014 Domaine Lafage Tessellae Carignan Vieilles Vignes
Roussillon, France
A crazy value, the 2014 IGP Cotes Catalanes Tessellae Carignan Vieilles Vignes is one of the best examples of this variety from the Roussillon, and the fact that it sells for a song is just icing on the cake for the consumer. Coming all from schist soils and 70-year-old vines, raised 12 months in a mix of concrete tanks and demi-muids, it offers tons of black raspberry and black cherry fruit, licorice and dried spices to go with a super sexy, heady, seamless style on the palate that keeps you coming back to the glass. Drink this blockbuster over the coming 2-3 years. 92 Pts Wine Advocate
