January 2014

Elizabeth Spencer 
Sauvignon Blanc
Mendocino, CA
Effusive, yet delicate, aromas of pear blossom, ruby grapefruit and a hint of slate leap from the glass. Luscious flavors of white peach, ripe nectarine and subtle citrus notes leaning towards ruby grapefruit along with hints of tangy apple drape over bright acidity and provide great accompaniment to the vineyard’s hallmark hint of slate and fresh-cut grass. This well-balanced wine holds a light and vibrant intensity consistently through to the finish, which keeps the lively palate refreshed and bright.

Domain Magellan
Vieilles Vignes
Grenache Roussanne
Deep golden in color, with flavors of apricot, vanilla, cream and spice. Rich and full-bodied, with a decadent finish filled with ripe melon and smoke. Distinctive.

Bon Marche'
Red Blend
Napa, CA
"Our red blend was aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels.  Aromas of toasty oak, spice, black cherry, plum and vanilla carry over to the palate and are engulfed in a mouth-filling, flavorful, juicy package.  This wine was crafted for immediate enjoyment, but for those who enjoy a more complex wine dsiplaying some bottle-aged character, aging for another one to years is a good option."

Indaba Mosaic
76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 
4% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot
South Africa
This lip-smacking Bordeaux blend displays alluring aromas and juicy flavors of blackcurrant, ripe brambly berryfruit and dark chocolate, with subtle spice notes. Soft, gentle tannins coat the palate, enticing you to take another sip!
