2016 Jean-Luc Colombo, "La Redonne"
Cotes-du-Rhone, Northern Rhone Valley, France
Composed of 70% Viognier and 30% Roussanne, La Redonne begins life in prime vineyards planted on granitic terraces and alluvial plains. Intensely aromatic and typically full-bodied, Viognier dominates the fragrant nose with the Roussanne adding a balancing touch of freshness. The wine is vinified in stainless steel vats to emphasise the pure varietal character and then around 20% of the wine is matured in oak barrels on the lees to add complexity and a smooth roundness.
Exotic aromas of mangos and dates mingle with hazelnuts, white flowers and honey on the nose, while the palate features a fruity attack with apricot, peach and citrus flavours coming to the fore. Thanks to the full body, velvety texture and harmonizing freshness, La Redonne is an ideal option to serve as an aperitif or to pair with pasta carbonara, roasted chicken or baked cod served in a creamy sauce.

2016 Raúl Pérez, "Ultreia"
From the eccentric master of Mencia, Raúl Pérez, the Ultreia Saint Jacques is 100% Mencia bursting with ripe blackberry, boysenberry and strawberry fruit flavors, with hints of game and violets and a spicy finish. Smooth and gulpable, yet so complex; this is a wine for all palates!
2015 Landmark, "Overlook"
Sonoma County, California
Our perennial favorite value Chardonnay from California! It’s toasty and rich, but with plenty of clean acidity to keep it refreshing and food-friendly.
2017 Chateau des Annibals, Rosé
Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Rolle
Western Cape, South Africa
The classic dry Cotes-de-Proence Rosé. Elegant salmon pink color, complex aromas of fresh red berries, nectarine and white flowers. The palate offers silky raspberry and tangerine flavors, with a beautiful mineral, zippy finish.
2017 Stolpman Vineyards, "Love You Bunches"
Santa Barbara County, California
2014 Domaine Vocoret
Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons, Burgundy, France
“Pale, bright yellow with a green tinge. Meaty, musky scents of lemon, lavender sea salt and pungent white flowers. Juicy and penetrating on the palate, conveying lipsmacking salinity and noteworthy inner-mouth energy to the flavors of grapefruit and flowers. Nicely dry and reticent on the youthfully tight but already very persistent finish.” –Stephen Tanzer

2015 Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux, "Pinot Fin"
A tremendous Bourgogne from excellent plots in Chambolle-Musigny, Vosne-Romanee and Nuits-Saint-Georges. The bouquet is forward and quite floral (80% Whole Cluster) offering a lovely expression of red and dark fruits and a nice impression of minerality for this level. On the palate generous and weighty fruit – nice vibrant freshness. It’s very complex and intense for this level – a magnificent Bourgogne rouge.
2015 Alain Voge, "Les Chailles"
Cornas, Rhone Valley, France
“…notes of wild herbs, peppered meats, garrigue, and sweet currants and blackberries all emerge from Voge’s 2015 Cornas les Chailles, and it has full-bodied richness and incredible purity. As always, it has a polished, seamless style, yet it is 100% Cornas through and through. It should drink nicely in its youth and last for 15+ years.” —Wine Advocate 91-93
