Here is the line-up and as always, there are 2 each of the first four wines (*) and 1 each of the last four wines.
*2018 Carta Vieja Sauvignon Blanc, Valle del Loncomilla, Chile - A perennial value that always over delivers for the price. Notes of fresh herbs and lime, this is a fresh, juicy, nicely balanced wine with crispy acidity and a touch of minerality.
*2018 Ch. Saint-Cyrgues Costieres de Nimes Rose, Rhone, France - (60% Syrah 40% Grenache) This organic wine is bursting with notes of fresh cherries and raspberries all wrapped in a crisp, medium bodied, and nicely balanced, softly textured blanket. Serve with grilled vegetables and aioli.
*2017 Hopler Pannonica White, Burgenland, Austria - 40% Gruner Veltliner, 35% Chardonnay, and 25% Pinot Blanc. Chardonnay provides mid palate texture but fresh ripe pear, citrus zest and peppery notes characterize this crisp, dry Austrian white wine.
*2014 Hopler Pannonica Red, Burgenland, Austria – “Lots of fleshy black and red cherry fruit swishes on nose and palate. It is juicy fruit that firmly stands in the foreground on a fluid palate which also has lovely, exciting tinges of white pepper spice. The body is fresh and light, the finish is refreshing and moreish.” (WE top 100 Best buys 2018)
2018 Laurent Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauv. Reserva,  Maipo, Chile: - (95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Carmenere.)  All organic production. Fermentation in tank followed by 4 months in neutral barrel. Fresh and accessible with plenty of dark currant-like fruit and not-too-aggressive tannins.
2017 Mastroberardino Greco “Mastro”, Campania, Italy- Here is a delicious, light bodied dry white with herbal, lime zest and floral notes meshing with hints of tropical fruit.  Fresh, with lively acidity and a delicate saline underpinning.
2017 Red Tail Ridge Winery Chardonnay, Finger Lakes, New York – Fruit comes from Doyle Fournier, the oldest Vinifera vineyard in the Finger Lakes. No fining, minimal SO2 added at bottling.  Very fresh and zingy with plenty of tart apple concentrated pear juice and citrus notes underscored by plenty of stony mineral impressions.
2018 Collina San Ponzio Barbera d’Alba, Piedmont, Italy- “I’ve been tasting some very nice barberas lately. This Collina San Ponzio is a beauty, with smoky cherry flavors and scents of alpine herbs. Just thinking about it makes me hungry for salumi or roast pork. ABV: 13.5 percent.” (Dave McIntyre, Washington Post, 2/22)
