ROUSSILLON BLANC 'CUVEE CENTENAIRE' 2015 by DOMAINE LAFAGE in SOUTHERN FRANCE $18.99 BTL
"The 2015 Cotes du Roussillon Centenaire is a racy, medium-bodied blend of mostly Grenache Blanc, with 20% Roussanne. Crushed rocks, mint, lime and citrus blossom are some of the nuances here, and it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, beautiful purity of fruit and a clean, dry finish. It’s an outstanding white to enjoy over the coming 2-3 years.” 92 Points - The Wine Advocate
MALBEC 'GOLDEN RESERVE' 2013 by TRIVENTO in LUJAN de CUJO, ARGENTINA $25.49 BTL
“This 100% Malbec is purple red with deep violet tones. It has a bouquet of berry fruits, plum jam, coffee and tobacco notes. The wine is elegant and powerful on the palate with velvety tannins. Enjoy with steaks, roasts, pasta dishes with robust sauces, and cheeses. . Drink now through 2020." 90 points Wine Spectator
CHARDONNAY 2013 by STONESTREET in ALEXANDER VALLEY, CALIFORNIA $39.99 BTL
Our estate-driven Chardonnay is a winemaker blend of four of our most expressive vineyard sites; hence it's one of the most layered wines from our mountain. One finds vivid citrus peel and pear aromas and flavors, with smoke and crème brûlée shading the background. The wine's lush palate texture is bolstered by a finish with surprising grip and acidity. 94 points Robert Parker
PINOT NOIR 2013 by FEL WINES in ANDERSON VALLEY, CALIFORNIA $29.99 BTL
The intensity of the 2013 is immediately apparent on the nose of the FEL Anderson Valley Pinot Noir which is rich with aromatics of black cherry, pomegranate, and cola. Hints of blackberry, mint, and toast add to the complexity. On the palate the wine sings with rich flavors of more cherry and spice. The robust tannins and ample acidity give the wine structure and definition that will ensure great ageability. 91 points Tasting Panel
CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA 2011 by VILLA ANTINORI in TUSCANY, ITALY $33.99 BTL
"This delicious wine opens with aromas of violet, iris, underbrush, black fruit and cinnamon-spice notes. The concentrated palate delivers a solid core of rich black cherry accented with notes of black pepper and Mediterranean herbs alongside firm tannins that carry on to the finish." 91 points Wine Enthusiast
