2016 Bodegas Ordoñez-Rueda Nisia Verdejo Old Vines
Rueda, Central Spain
(60 percent raised in large oak casks, 25 percent of them new, and 40 percent raised in stainless steel tanks, all of it on its lees) Green-tinged yellow. Meyer lemon, melon, jasmine and a vanilla nuance on the highly perfumed nose. Pliant and broad in the mouth, offering juicy pit fruit and floral flavors that tighten up on the back half. The floral quality repeats on a long, penetrating finish that’s sharpened by a spine of juicy acidity. 91 Pts Josh Raynolds, Vinous
BTG $7.75 Retail $17.99

2016 Yalumba Viognier South Australia Organics
South Australia
This wine is pale straw in color with green hues. The aroma is a complex mix of pretty white flowers, jasmine and honeysuckle with fennel and ginger. Creamy, rich and long flavors on the palate include fresh apricot nectar and star fruit, leading into a succulent mid palate with bright citrus flavours and Asian five spice on the finish. 89 Pts Wine Spectator

2015 CONTRADE Negroamaro
Puglia, Italy
100% Negroamaro, one of the most representative red grapes of Salento. Known for producing wines that are full-bodied, rich, elegant and with the typical soft tannins of the Italian “classics,” the word Negroamaro is a Latin-Greek blend which emphasizes the colour of the grape: niger from Latin “black” and mavros from Greek “dark”. Deep ruby red; intense aroma, with notes of cherry and blueberry jam, cocoa, licorice and floral fragrances. Round with warm structure and smooth tannins. 90 Pts TC
BTG $6.00 Retail $10.99

2014 Vinum “The Insider” Cabernet Sauvignon
Paso Robles, California
This medium plum Cabernet from the best “Big Red” grape areas of Paso Robles has concentrated aromas of cassis and boysenberry. The entry of this wine displays a very supple and plush texture with ripe black cherries, integrated vanilla and balanced French oak notes. After opening up, the wine reveals a vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon tannin structure which showcases both its backbone and age-ability while ending with rich plummy and ripe cherry fruit with cherry vanilla on the finish. 89 Pts Wine Enthusiast
