Huber Hugo Grüner Veltliner, 2011
From the Traisental region of Lower Austria this 100 % Gruner Veltliner is white-gold in color, the wine has spicy, floral aromas. Flavors are fragrant, with citrus dominating the palate and hints of spice. It is delightfully fresh, exuberant and charming.

Domaine de Fontsainte Corbières Rosé, 2011
70% Grenache Gris and Grenache Noir; 10% Mourvèdre; 10% Carignan; 10% Cinsault.
A crystalline salmon color with superb amethyst tints. Expressive and particularly tonic, the wine immediately gives off notes of raspberry, cherry and freshly picked strawberries – followed by exotic aromas such as pineapple and mango. In the mouth the density and richness of the fruit mingle with the superb acid vitality giving a wine with a frisson and a magnificent persistency.

Château Puech Haut Prestige Coteaux de Languedoc, 2010
60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, and 5% Carignan
The 2010 Chateau Puech-Haut Coteaux du Languedoc Saint-Drezery Cuveé Prestige is a custom cuveé made by Philippe Cambie and Eric Solomon; it possesses a vivid, semi-opaque purple color to go with captivating aromas of raspberry liqueur, cassis, fresh flowers, sappy underbrush, and licorice like qualities that simply soar from the glass. On the palate, this impeccably put together Languedoc has a pure, polished profile, with a sappy, resinous tactile sensation in its full-bodied texture, perfect balance, and a long, seamless finish.
BTG $9.00 Retail $22.99
Filon Garnacha Calatayud, 2010
This one is young and bursting with aromas of ripe red and black fruit, cherries and red raspberries. Dry but with fully ripe tannins along with layers of red berry and dark cherry fruit, cassis and a hint of black licorice.
BTG $5.00 Retail $10.99
Three Wine Co. Old Vines Zinfandel , 2008
Deep purple color to the edge. Ripe, primary nose of concentrated blueberries and benchmark Zinfandel spice. Dense and concentrated on the palate, but with fine layers of minerality sneaking through. Fine structure in the finish with plenty of cut to balance the richness.
