2017 Ame Du Vin Rose

2016 La Playa Viogner,Chardonnay Blend
Colchagua Valley, Chile
The aromatic Viognier variety is very successful in the cooler coastal regions of Chile making some excellent balanced wines. This is a terrific, lively wine with an exotic aroma of dried apricots, pineapple, banana and lychee. Vibrant tropical flavours flash across the tongue before expanding on the palate with a long, dry and pleasant finish.
BTG $6.00 Retail $8.99

2016 Wrath Ex Pinot noir
Monterey, California
With a name meaning “out of” in Latin, EX speaks to our focus on expressing the personality and characteristics of the Certified Sustainable (SIP) estate vineyard. These Pinot grapes are harvested a bit earlier than other lots to retain bright acidic energy. New French oak is kept to a minimum so that the flavor retains focus on Wrath’s estate grown fruit. The resulting wine is bright and energetic with cherry and red berry flavors that have undertones of earth and a hint of spice.
BTG $10.00 Retail $24.99

2014 Axel Carmenere
Colchagua Valley, Chile
A bold dark red. On the nose, ripe black fruit aromas with hints of almonds and a touch of mint. With soft velvety tannins, this wine has a very strong structure with notes of chocolate and coffee.
BTG 7.50 Retail $16.99

2015 Mettler Pitite Syrah
Lodi, California
The Lodi microclimate is a true Mediterranean climate—excellent for growing Petite Sirah. The high daytime temperatures are tempered by Delta breezes which flow through the area in the evenings and cool down the fruit dramatically. The vineyards for the Mettler Petite Sirah are organically and sustainably grown.
The Mettler 2015 Petite Sirah exudes elegance and grace from the first sip. True to its varietal heritage, the color is opaque and deep purple. Soft aromas of dark berries, gingerbread and oak are sultry and inviting. As it unfolds on the palate, it delivers a beautiful swirl of concentrated berry flavors with notes of dark honey, blackberry pie and spice. Well integrated tannins create a bold backdrop for the beautifully lush texture, and carry the flavors through the lingering finish.
