2017 Jolivet ” Attitude” Sauvignon Blanc
Loire Valley , France
Attitude” has a beautiful freshness in mouth, a frank attack, delicate green and lemon flavours, citrus fruits, green appleand kiwi aromas. The minerality gives a long finish to the wine, a smoothness and elegance. Very pleasant with or without food.
BTG $7.25 Retail $15.99

2016 Landmark “Overlook” Chardonnay
Sonoma, California
Pale lemon yellow, with aromas of ripe lemon, yellow apple, pineapple and toasted oak. Balanced and layered on the entry with ripe lemon, green apple and grilled ripe pineapple with attractive smoky oak and vanilla barrel notes. The crisp mid-palate shows savory chamomile flower and a pleasant mineral texture with sustained fruit that continues through the clean, textured finish.

2016 Belle Glos “Las Alturas” Pinot Noir
Monterey, California
The Spanish term ‘Las Alturas’ means ‘the heights’, a fitting name for this vineyard located on one of the highest grape-growing benches in the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. At this elevation, the sunny but very cool climate creates a wine bearing all the hallmarks of this coastal region: robust, expressive, full-bodied and balanced by a firm acidity.Deep garnet in color with an aromatic medley of black cherry, marionberry, ripe plum and a hint of anise. Dark fruit on the palate with flavors of wild berries, caramelized oak and cacao nibs complemented by subtle notes of vanilla, cedar and a hint of lavender and forest floor. Rich and unrestrained, this wine’s abundant fruit is beautifully balanced by firm acidity and layers of red and black fruit. 91 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $14.00 Retail $39.99

2014 The Counselor “River Pass” Cabernet
Alexander Valley, California
This wine, made with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, offers aromas of raspberry, blackberry and cinnamon. On the palate, black currant, cherry, and raspberry flavors mingle with tea and dark chocolate accents. The wine has bright acid — and is smooth and softly textured with black cherry on the finish. 91 Pts Wilford Wong
BTG $11.25 Retail $29.99

2016 Yangarra Estate “PF” Shiraz
McLaren Vale, Austrailia
The PF Shiraz is made from grapes grown on Yangarra Estate’s certified biodynamic single-estate vineyard, grown without herbicides, fungicides, or synthetic chemicals. It is made without additions of any kind: sulphur (preservative), acid, tannin or finings.
While it’s obviously a healthy, squeaky-clean presentation of young Shiraz, this is also a glass full of joy and laughter. It’s bright and stimulating, but not light in any way other than mood, but as a young wine it’s just as carefree in attitude. It’s intense, dark and perhaps like fresh soft liquorice in a way. This is pure, audacious, open-hearted fun. 94 Pts James Suckling
BTG $8.25 Retail $19.99
