2016 Cedar + Salmon Pinot Noir
Willamette Valley, Oregon
Brimming with fresh blackberry and plum aromas,
gains earth and herb nuances with time. Ripe red plums and red
cherries dominate the smooth palate, accented by a
dash of herbs.
BTG $10.00 Retail $24.99

2012 Cadaretta Cabernet
Walla Walla, Washington
Aromas of black cherry, black berry and cassis. Some toasty mocha oak notes. Very subtle, complexing notes of an earthy wet forest floor (a mixture of wet leaves and earth), and pine tar. The fruit profile focused on black fruit carries through onto the palate with an addition of vanilla on the finish. The mouthfeel is rich and full with ample tannins, but they are velvety-soft, nice and round.

BTG 13.75 Retail $37.99

2014 Tait Ballbuster
Barossa Valley, Austrailia
78% Shiraz, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot.
Glass-staining ruby. Expressive, oak-spiced cherry, blackberry and violet pastille aromas are complemented by suggestions of dark chocolate and licorice. Sweet, seamless and open-knit, offering nicely concentrated dark berry, cherry and spicecake flavors and a touch of vanilla. Shows very good focus and thrust on the long, juicy finish, which features repeating spiciness and gentle, slow-building tannins.” 91 Pts Wine Spectator, #36 Top 100 wines of the year. 91 Pts Vinous
BTG $9.00 Retail $22.99
