Giordano Lombardo Vigne di San Martino ($16.99):
Bright, pure nutty citrus fruits and a touch of nuttiness. Driving minerality on the palate, chalky texture that does not diminish the graceful freshness and clarity of expression.
Reunion Malbec ($15.95): This sustainably farmed, single vineyard estate wine is very expressive with ripe, fruity aromas of plum and cherry, as well as notes of chocolate. Soft and round on the palate with velvety and mature tannins; it has a well balanced and full-bodied mouthfeel and a generous, silky smooth long finish.
Peirano Cabernet Sauvignon ($15.99):
Ripe and rich aromas of zesty black cherries, kola-nut, and toasty cocoa. The initial sip unveils sweet anise, luscious black cherry, molasses, and baked blackberry pie, while maintaining absolute dryness and firm, round, yet supple, tannins on the impressive, lengthy finish.
Ampelos Syrache ($29.99): A Rhone-Style blend of Syrah and Grenache, this full-bodied California red has everything you would expect from a top producer in Sta. Rita Hills. Extremely elegant with bright acidity, this wine shows incredibly ripe fruit with structure and tantalizing savory notes. Truly a red wine for all seasons.
