*2018 Chateau Famaey Vin de Pays du Lot Malbec Rosé, Southwest Fr. – vinified ‘methode saignee” & raised in stainless steel. Starts with aromas of fresh citrus & hints of strawberry with notes of red berries on the mid weight palate. It’s a supple, balanced, rosé with great balance between the “gras” & the acidity.
*2019 Quinta de Cabriz Dao Colheita Seleccionada Branco, Dao, Portugal- “Bright, crisp and youthfully fruity, the wine has a ripe texture that is balanced with vibrant acidity. Its apple flavors are shot through with citrus acidity and a tangy texture. Drink now” (WE)
*2018 Fattoria la Lecciaia Orvieto Classico, Umbria, Italy - Taking its name from the fortified town of Orvieto, this wine is a blend of 50% Grechetto, 30% Malvasia and 20% Trebbiano grapes. The “Classico” appellation is given only to Orvieto wine produced in the oldest production zone.  Fresh and elegant with nectarine and floral notes, this medium bodied wine has a bittersweet touch of almonds on the crisp finish. This a perfect wine for baked or fried fish of any type.
*2015 Scopone Sant’ Antimo Rosso “Il Gregoriano”, Tuscany, Italy - A relatively new appellation that basically overlays the Tuscan DOCG of Brunello di Montalcino and provides Brunello producers with a way to use grapes other than Sangiovese grosso.  This blend of Sangiovese grosso (same clone as Brunello) and a bit of Petit Verdot was one of our all-time best sellers a few years ago. Now we offer the 2015, a ripe and very good vintage in Montalcino, and this wine has floral notes and ripe red fruit with great Sangiovese acidity. There is a richness on the palate but the tannins are mild. It drinks more like modern Montalcino Rosso than Chianti and will make a great pizza/pasta wine.
2018 Domaine de la Chauviniere Muscadet Sevre et Maine, Loire, France- 100% Melon de Bourgogne Crunchy Pear and lime with a chalky mineral and an almost salty finish with intense acidity and citrus fruits. The perfect match for raw oysters, most sashimi, ceviche and aged goat cheeses.
2018 Franco Serra Dolcetto d’Alba, Piedmont, Italy - Muted aromas of violets, smokey expresso, violets and lavender. Light to medium bodied, dry, with moderate acidity framed by soft plum and blackberry flavors. The finish has a touch of acidity and refined tannins. A burger and pizza wine.
2017 Clos Agnes Chardonnay, Carneros, California - A great value for Carneros Chardonnay! Aromas of ripe pear and apple with tropical accents leads to a traditional California Chardonnay touch of butter and oak with fresh lemon and a clean, dry finish.
2019 Merceron-Martin Anjou Rouge, Loire, France – (100% Cabernet Franc) Classic Loire Valley Cab Franc with notes of violets, spice, green pepper and hints of wet campfire. It finishes smooth with a bright combination of minerality and tannins.
