2014 Marco Felluga Pinot Grigio
Friuli, Italy
From Gradisca d’Isonzo, at the heart of some of the best grape-growing areas in Friuli Venezia Giulia, comes this delightful, fresh and easy-going white wine. The wine delivers ample zest and crispness that adds a kick of extra energy and intensity. It shows characteristic tones of cut grass and honeydew melon with a very approachable personality. Subtle tones of natural rubber and dried sage add an interesting signature to the finish.

2015 Solena Pinot Gris
Willamette Valley, Oregon
┬ČThis Pinot Gris is crisp and light with notes of ripe apricot, pineapple, fresh baked bread, and white Floral notes of jasmine and honeysuckle. 91 Pts Wine Enthusiast
BTG $8.00 Retail $18.99

2014 Drouhin Roserock Pinot Noir
Willamette Valley, Oregon
The 2014 Roserock Pinot Noir offers blackberry and briary scents on the nose with a touch of earthiness – well defined and quite vivacious in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with dusky blackberry and blueberry fruit. It exerts a gentle grip in the mouth and delivers white pepper sprinkled over the finish that is nicely detailed. This should drink well over the next 8-10 years and at this price, I would be loading up. 91 Pts Wine Advocate
Retail $36.99

2014 St Cosme Cotes Du Rhone ” Deux Albions”
Rhone Valley, France
The 2014 Cotes du Rhone les Deux Albions has surprising density and depth of fruit in the vintage. Blackberries, currants, licorice, garrigue and pepper all emerge from this medium-bodied, sweetly fruited, charming, forward and delicious beauty. It will drink well right out of the gate.
