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.
Paul Mas Coteaux du Languedoc Belleguette Blanc ($19.99): The creamy palate reveals complex flavours of ripe mango, pineapple and vanilla with notes of brioche and toast lingering on the finish. Great as apéritif, this wine can also be enjoyed with white meats, fish and salads.
Chateau Greysac Medoc ($20.99): A blend of five vineyards, some of which go into single-vineyard designates, this is a well made, structured wine, offering layers of black cherry and subtle earth around soft, velvety tannins. The finish highlights black pepper spice with dark chocolate chaser.
Il Fauno di Arcanum Toscana Rosso ($35.99): The nose explodes with bright raspberries and wild berries, with some floral tones of lavender. Though a Bordeaux style blend, the palate is more Burgundian with soft elegant tannins and textures. The slightly higher than usual acids firmly frame a potpourri of blueberry and sour cherry. The fruit slowly subsides giving way to exotic spice, reminiscent of cardamom and finishing with sweet black licorice.
