Castelmaure Corbieres “Col des Vents” 2012, France ($12.99):
Brambly berry, cherry and raspberry, spices and black pepper are present in this authentic French country wine. There are also hints of rosemary and lavender providing further complexity along with minty and herbal notes.
Penya Cotes Catalanes Rouge 2014, France ($12.99):
Offers lots of kirsch and darker berry fruit, spring flowers, pepper and violet notes to go with a medium-bodied, supple, forward, lively feel. This terrific, un-oaked effort from the Roussillon way over-delivers.
Pyren Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon “Broken Quartz” 2010, Australia ($23.99):
Intense aromas of black cherry on the nose with a fresh minty edge and flavors of concentrated black fruit with hints of chocolate and tobacco.
Red Head Studio “Yard Dog” White 2015, Australia ($12.99):
A multi-regional blend of vigonier, semillon and riesling from South Australia. Pale green straw, with subtle stone fruit and citrus notes on the nose, with white peaches and apricots on the fresh and vibrant palate.
