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.
2016 Von der Leyen Riesling, Nahe, Germany - Tropical fruit and floral aromas. Easy to drink, almost dry, luscious and peachy in the mouth with a hint of citrus and minerals. A well balanced wine with a clean as a whistle finish and friendly acidity. A perfect foil for Turkey and stuffing.
2015 Herencia Altes Garnatxa Negra, Terra Alta, Spain – “Black cherry, olive, licorice and light tar notes mingle in this lively red. Fresh acidity and light tannins lend this just enough structure, but the focus is on the fruit. Drink now.” (WS 8/16)
2016 Barnard Griffin Fume Blanc, Columbia Valley, Wash. State- A savory and not too acidic Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of stone fruit with a touch of herbs and grass, new world styled with more flesh than Loire Valley, it is balanced and elegant. Great with chicken and shellfish.
2016 Domaine Martinolles Pinot Noir, Pays d’ Oc, France- Pinot Noir was one of the principal grape varieties in the Languedoc during the 15th century. The Vergnes 25 acres of Pinot Noir vines are planted on limestone hillsides in cooler areas of the region. Medium bodied with delicate aromas of ripe berries; it’s balanced with a long bright cherry finish and very mild, refined tannins. It will pair well with turkey, chicken, pork chops or pate.
2016 Pazo di Valei Albarino, Rias Baixas, Spain - Hand-picked, Albarino grapes are the basis of Galicia’s most important wine. Conditioned in defensive Galician palaces called in the local dialect “pazo”, this is a medium bodied wine with ripe apple and pear notes and a kind of crunchy salinity on the palate. The finish is pure crispy Albarino. Pair with all seafood, salads and fish. This is a slam dunk for the price!
2016 Chateau de Passavant Anjou Blanc, Loire, France - Medium bodied, dry, slightly lemony Chenin Blanc, with notes of green baking apples, quince and a hint of golden raisins. A balanced wine that finishes with crispy apple notes. Ideal companion to accompany your turkey, grilled fish or fresh cheeses. 
2013 Lechthaler Teroldego Rotaliano, Trentino, Italy- “The black cherry and cassis fruit is ripe and tangy in this medium-bodied red, layered with light tannins and smoke, licorice, olive and spice notes that emerge on the fresh, accessible finish. Drink now through 2017” (WS, WO 2015)
2015 Poliziano Rosso di Montepulciano, Tuscany, Italy- “This red opens with ripe plum and cherry fruit, yet it also has a brooding side. Firm tannins provide support, while earth and iron elements add depth. Best from 2018 through 2023.” (WS 10/17)
