2018 La Pincoya Sauvignon Blanc, San Antonio Valley
On Sale $14.99 (compare to $19.99 online!)
This single-vineyard wine comes from the San Antonio Valley, located near Andes Mountains. Aged entirely in steel. Ripe and citrus driven with orchard fruits and flowers on the pungent nose. Sneaky depth and intensity. Mineral, white peach, and tart melon come out on the dry, spicy, and long finish. Lingering stoniness and a touch of honey. Crazy good.

2017 J. Wilkes Chardonnay, Santa Rita Hills AVA
On Sale $14.99
Lime peel, green pear, lemongrass and wet river stone combine for an inviting and complex nose. There is strong chalky tension to the palate, where a flavor of Key lime pie is wrapped in bright acid.

2017 Calera Vin Gris of Pinot Noir, Central Coast AVA
On Sale $20.99
The 2017 Vin Gris of Pinot Noir is super-refined, silky and polished. A Rosé of pure class, Calera’s Vin Gris has so much to offer. Expressive floral and stony notes add nuance to the bright cranberry and pink grapefruit flavors.

2012 Maysara Pinot Noir “Jamsheed,” Momtazi Vineyard, McMinnville, Oregon
On Sale $24.99
A ripe and beautiful pinot noir with dark berry, peach and hints of walnuts. Full body, dusty tannins and a flavorful finish. An impressive wine showing the ripeness and greatness of the vintage. From biodynamically-grown grapes and Demeter certified. Drink now.

2015 BK Wines ‘Skin n Bones’ Lenswood Single Vineyard Pinot Noir, Adelaide Hills, Australia
On Sale $33.99
A single vineyard in the Lenswood district, this has a nice sense of approachability and balance, the fruit flavors run to the blue and purple fruit spectrum, poached purple cherries and blueberries, sappy with bergamot and crushed blue roses. The palate is supple and easy, tannins are smooth and nicely paced, tastes of juicy red and blue plums, red cherries too. Drink now and for 5+ years.

2016 La Pincoya Proprietary Red Blend, Colchagua Valley, Chile
On Sale $14.99 (compare to $19.99 online!)
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Carmenere, fermented in steel then aged further in second and third use French oak. No new wood ever on this one. This is just awesome on the nose with sexy blackberry, dark cherry, and floral aromas. Round and elegant, with sweet dark berry flavors, great tannin, and an impressive mineral kick. Leaves an exotic, Bordeaux like floral quality behind on the finish. A lot of wine for the money. FYI, we re-tasted the same bottle after being open for 3 days and found it still going strong.
