Canard Duchene Brut N.V...$29.99
Located in the Montagne de Reims, this Champagne is a subtle blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that is carefully aged in the long galleries of the underground cellars in Ludes.  Characterized by fresh fruit aromas jostling with brioche notes, the sign of good aging, this is a light-hearted Champagne, perfect for every occasion.  Very classy, complex and structured with excellent fruit and a long, toasty finish.  The Pinot Noir being dominant contributes to the wine's superb structure.

Canard Duchene Brut Rose...$36.99
Very elegant, with graphite, cherry and citrus aromas and
flavors. Builds nicely on the palate, with lovely fruit and a
refined texture. The finish lingers. Wine Spectator, 91 pts

Veramonte Carmenere 2013...$9.99
Purple with red highlights showing notes of raspberry and cherry on the nose, followed by ripe blue and black fruits added to the medium bodied palate. Spicy notes develop on the finish some from a small amount of oak ageing and some from the style of grape

Prisoner Red blend 2014... $49.99
Bold aromas of black cherry and plum are heightened by hints of oak and Madagascar vanilla. A soft and velvety palate of anise, dark cocoa powder and roasted sage lead into a dense finish with luscious tannins.
