Ameztoi Txakolina ‘Rubentis’ Rose ($23.95): Gorgeous coral/peach color in the glass, this lightly pétillant wine intrigues and seduces from the bright, fresh nose, through the slightly saline finish. Subtle notes of candied strawberry, lime zest and tropical flowers.
Evesham Woods Blanc de Puits-Sec ($19.99): The nose leaps eagerly from the glass with bright jasmine, alluring honeysuckle and rose petal followed by flirty flavors of pear and honeydew, balanced weight on the palate and a lifted cut. It finishes with redolent spice from the Gewürztraminer.
Vinedos de la Vientos Tannat ($17.99): This enticing South American surprise, a Tannat from Uruguay, shows a powerful palate, with flavors of blackberries, delicate smokiness, and a long and intense finish of dark fruits. Firm and polished tannins giving a true Tannat expression.
Robert Sinskey POV ($36.95): A deep, dark purple hue alludes to its impressive nature as the succulent aromas and flavors of berry compote are backed by notes of bay leaf and fennel. Supple tannin balanced by just the slightest hint of fine oak and vibrant acidity. Mouth filling and delicious with an incredibly long finish, this wine begs to be paired with a romantic dinner for two.
