Ventana Sauvignon Blanc 2014 . . . $14.99
This pale, clean wine shimmers like a diamond in the glass. The nose is a shape-shifter, jumping from tropical elements of honeydew, bubble gum and guava to sharper-cut grass tones. It’s dynamic on the palate too, proving both ripe with stone-fruit flesh and sour with chopped herbs, green pepper and grass. A touch of crushed rocks rounds it out nicely. 90pts, Wine Enthusiast

Milbrandt Riesling 2013 . . . $11.99
The Traditions Riesling is made in a refreshing, off-dry style with aromas and flavors of sweet Elberta peach, ripe Granny Smith apple and zesty Key lime. This wine is bright with a pronounced minerality, reminiscent of wet stone, on the mid-palate and a crisp fruit-driven finish.

Ventana Pinot Noir 2012 . . . $17.99
This wine has an explosion of wild cherry, raspberry and cranberry flavors with a delicious hint of cedar. Ten months of aging rounds out the flavor complexities with a touch of smokiness and vanilla. The wine is medium bodied with a bright berry red color.

Experience Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 . . . $26.99
Fresh fruit is the focus here, with prominent aromas of boysenberry, blueberry, and plum balancing nicely with maple sugar, sweet vanilla, and black peppercorn. On the palate, the wine is juicy with a fruit explosion of blueberries, plum, and sour cherry, leading to a soft finish.
