2014 Lafond Chardonnay
Santa Rita Hills , California
Ripe and lively, with an enveloping minerality to the crunchy green apple, citrus and pastry flavors. Vibrant acidity matches with a finish that features accents of slate and flint. 92 Pts Wine Spectator

2014 Finca Villacreces Pruno
Ribera del Duero, Spain
Plum and boysenberry flavors are ripe and juicy in this plump red. Notes of tar and mineral impart a savory aspect, while firm tannins and orange peel acidity lend focus. 90 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $8.75 Retail $21.99

2014 Martin Ray Cabernet
Sonoma, California
A blend of Sonoma County’s sub-appellations expresses a wonderful complexity in this wine. A fruit-driven bouquet and palate with notes of wild blackberry, Maraschino cherry, and spicy persimmon is balanced by aromatic cloves, fresh sage leaves, and a touch of butterscotch. This approachable, medium-bodied Cabernet is not to be underestimated with its pronounced tannins and well-integrated oak influence.
BTG $8.75 Retail $21.99

2014 Ancient Peaks Renegade Red
Paso Robles, Cailfornia
There is a lot to like in this blend of 80% Syrah, 18% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot, which offers deep blackberry, black cherry, star anise and pie crust on the ripe, exotically spicy nose. The palate is rich with black cherry and vanilla flavors, cut by dark spice, lingering acidity and tannic depth. 92Pts Wine Enthusiast
