2012 Mont Marcal Brut Cava Reserve
Penedes, Spain
Pale green-tinged gold. Bright and energetic on the nose, displaying ripe pear and melon scents and a zesty lemon pith topnote. Fleshy, dry and focused on the palate, offering Meyer lemon, honeydew and yellow apple flavors that are given an edge of spiciness by a subtle ginger note. Closes with bright, minerally cut, repeating florality and very good persistence.. 90 pts Josh Reynolds Vinous

NV Sokol Blosser Evolution #9
Dundee Hills , Oregon
The different grapes tie together perfectly, creating a smooth, layered, off-dry white wine that can hold its own or stand up to just about any food pairing you dare to serve it with. It is extraordinarily food-friendly, from light salads to the hottest fusion-style cuisine. Intense fruit up front and a crisp, clean finish. This unique white is truly a parade of flavors across the palate.

2015 Leese Fitch Pinot Noir
Clarksburg and Lodi , California
The aromas are reminiscent of fresh summer plum, wild strawberry and lavender blossom with hints of crushed purple basil. The palate starts with flavors of bright Bing cherry, tart strawberry, vanilla bean and light cardamom. On the finish, plum flavors dominate with hints of raspberry, sweet dried cranberry and rich French oak notes of vanilla and nutmeg.

2014 Condado De Haza Crianza
Ribera del Duero, Spain
This rich red shows a deep core of plum, bramble and mineral, with notes of loam and game that impart a savory character. Solid tannins support a thick texture, while balsamic acidity keeps this balanced. Austere but harmonious. 93 Pts Wine Spectator

2012 Mettler Old Vine Zinfandel Epicenter
Lodi, California
Draws you in with its deep, opaque garnet color. Enticing aromas of dried red currant, brambly blackberry and vanilla delight the senses. An impressive concentration of flavors offer waves of sweet raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry pie, enriched by notes of sweet tobacco, pepper and hints of cola. Silky, plush tannins float through the lingering finish, balanced by light touch of acidity. This wine has the elegance and balance of a fine Cabernet, yet retains the juicy, exuberant personality that is uniquely Zinfandel.
