Trimbach Gewurztraminer ($24.99): Trimbach Gewurztraminer is a bright pale gold color. Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, lychee and rose petals. The taste is rich, intense, luscious and well balanced with a dry, spicy finish.
Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon ($11.99): This offering from Colchgua, Chile is full-bodied with plums and black cherries on the nose. The palate shows dark fruit with a touch of earth and tobacco. Great value from a well known name.
Paul Mas Coteaux du Languedoc Clos de Mures ($19.99): Inky and opaque with a heady profusion of aromas including plum, violet and boysenberry. Structured and generous on a palate painted in broad strokes of ripe dark fruit chased with garrigues and a hint of sandalwood. A lingering finish of supple tannins completes this tour de force.
