2016 Mer Soleil Silver Chardonnay
Monterey, California
Never seeing the inside of an oak barrel, Mer Soleil SILVER is a pure, clean expression of Chardonnay. It is fermented and aged in a combination of stainless steel and small concrete tanks imported from Burgundy, France. Fresh from start to finish, this wine features aromas of flower blossoms and crisp pears. It is round and layered on the palate, with vibrant acidity and depth.

2014 Davis Bynum River West Chardonnay
Russian River Valley, California
An appealing struck match and savory character over a core of pineapples, guava and apricots, plus a suggestion of toasty oak. Medium-bodied, it has a lovely silkiness to the texture and plenty of tropical fruit and toasty flavors on offer in the mouth with a lively line of acid lending freshness, finishing long. Yeah, I just love finding great value wines like this that are produced in decent quantities and over-deliver on quality! 91 Pts Wine Advocate, 90 Pts Wine Enthusiast

2016 Davis Bynum Janes Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley, California
Has a lovely ruby red hue with aromas of black cherry, plum and earth. On the palate, this medium bodied wine begins with a wild brambly berry note along with purple floral characters and baking spices that shine through with balance, acidity and a long lingering finish. Warm, bright and full of flavor, a wonderful combination of fruit, earth and spice.
BTG $10.50 Retail $26.99

2015 Amancaya
Mendoza, Argentina
85% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep ruby color with violet hints. The nose presents aromas of cloves, white pepper, and raspberry. The sleek chocolate and tobacco finish has a pleasant racy edge. On the palate, the tannins are velvety with a long-lasting finish. Layer upon layer of refined flavors and lingering acidity can be appreciated after the bottle has been opened. This well balanced, well defined wine can be drunk now, but will open up with more time. 92 Pts James Suckling

2016 Two Hands Gnarly Dudes Shiraz
Barossa Valley, Australia
Gorgeous purity and silky tannins set the stage for kirsch, blueberry syrup, white chocolate and espresso flavors. Complex and generous, with an epic finish, where the harmonious flavors linger. 93 Pts Wine Spectator, 91 Pts Wine Advocate
