Besserat de Bellefon Vintage 2002Champagne . . . $59.99

A bright deep straw appearance with golden highlights. The steady stream of fast moving bubbles form a delicate necklace. The expressive nose is structured around ripe pear and quince notes as well as fruit jellies. With aeration, toasty notes appear on the scene before making way for menthol and spicy notes with ginger, cinnamon and anise. The champagne is powerful and generous on the palate.The finish, with a dominant flavour of cooked yellow fruits such as mirabelle, is fruity, generous and persistent.

Mont Gravet Cotes de Gascogne White 2013 . . . $8.99
100% Colombard. Mont Gravet has a pale, bright yellow color, with a very intense and refreshing nose. It displays flavors of citrus fruit and black currant leaf.

Vinum Cellars Petite Sirah 2013 . . . $13.99
On the palate this wine shines with ripe blue fruit such as blueberry, huckleberry and blackberries. These deep fruit notes sit on a silky tannin matrix of French oak with hints of vanilla, but finishes elegantly with cassis. 

Zuccardi Q Malbec 2012 . . . $19.99 Deep purple color, with bluish hues. Intense red and black fruits aromas, such as blackberries, cassis, and currant dried figs and blueberry jelly. French oak aging provides tobacco and chocolate hints. Soft and silky entry with great structure and firm, sweet tannins. Long finish.
