Vina Ventisquero Grey Carmenere 2010                  $18.99

This has a light nose of espresso and dark chocolate with fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins, dark chocolate-laced black fruit and just a hint of orange zest on the finish. This is a fine Carmenere, nicely balanced and well crafted. Drink now-2015.  Wine Advocate, 88 pts

Jason Stephens Cabernet Sauvignon 2009                $19.99

Deep garnet in color, with dense aromas of dried berries, cherries and a touch of eucalyptus and chocolate fudge. This gem of a wine is medium bodied on the palate with ripe and rich flavors of red berries, some chocolaty notes and a hint of spice. The finish is long and vibrant with elegant tannins giving it tremendous character and style.  Beverage Dynamics, 91 Points

Ventana Chardonnay 2012                                            $14.99

A light, yet fresh and focused Chardonnay, it displays tropical fruit notes of pineapple and mango.  It is well balanced and tastes of Gala apple, pear and lemon zest.  Light oak notes lead to hints of vanilla and honey tones.  The perfect balance of fruit, oak and acidity makes this an exceptional sipping and food friendly Chardonnay.  Winemaker’s Notes

Milbrandt Traditions Riesling 2012                $11.99

This is made in a refreshing, off-dry style with aromas and flavors of sweet Elberta peach, ripe Granny Smith apple and zesty Key lime. The wine is bright with a pronounced minerality reminiscent of wet stone on the mid-palate and with a crisp fruit-driven finish.
