2015 Jackson Estate “Stitch” Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand
The nose dominates with complex florals, ripe white stone fruits and fresh zesty citrus. To taste this follows through to the pallet with the same fresh citrus and ripe white stone fruit flavor’s, an underlying lees driven textural backbone and a pure mineral concentration. A perfectly balanced and crunchy acidity gives the wine lift, balance and poise.
BTG $7.00 Retail $14.99

2015 Wrath Ex Anima Pinot Noir
Monterey, California
Lots of depth and concentration. Aged in a combination of stainless steel and neutral barrels, it delivers pure, unadulterated, ripe fruit aromas and flavors. The highlights include blackberries, cola, raspberry, spice and seamless tannins.
BTG $10.00 Retail $24.99

2008 Dehesa La Granja
Castilla Leon, Spain
Deep ruby. A complex, perfumed bouquet evokes dark berries, cola, smoked meat and mint. Supple and expansive on the palate, offering gently sweet blackberry and cherry-cola flavors that are firmed and lifted by juicy acidity. The smoky note repeats on the finish, which hangs on with very good tenacity and a whisper of fine-grained tannins. Delicious right now. 91 Pts Vinous
BTG $8.00 Retail $18.99

2014 Plungerhead Zinfandel
Dry Creek, California
Dark in color with garnet edges, this wine bursts with aromas of toasted spices, black pepper, brambly fruit, fresh fig, and black olive. The palate shows notes of tart cranberry, fresh leather, blackberry compote, dill nuances from American oak aging, and sandalwood. Hints of caraway seed and freshly grated nutmeg linger on the finish.
BTG $8.25 Retail $19.99

2014 Nugan Estate Dried Grapes Shiraz
New South Wales, Australia
Dark purple. Ripe, spice-accented cherry and dark berries on the deeply perfumed nose. Lush and open-knit, offering palate-coating blueberry and cherry-vanilla flavors sharpened by a suggestion of cracked pepper. Closes sweet and long, with velvety tannins fading smoothly into the wine’s plush black and blue fruit. It reminds of a Turley wine. 92 Pts Vinous
BTG $10.75 Retail $27.99
