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 The Royal Chenin Blanc, Western Cape, South Africa- Reminiscent of wines from the Loire Valley, the Royal is produced from old vine Steen grown in the Western Cape, with melon, fresh pear and delicate floral hints. Very clean, crisp, delicious and fresh.
*2016 Di Lenardo Refosco, Friuli, Italy – (100% Refosco) A lighter bodied wine with wild berry and plum flavors underscored by a hint of baking chocolate. The finish is balanced with some acidity and refined tannins. Pairs well with sausage, burgers and cold cuts.
*2016 Chateau du Bloy Bergerac Rouge, Dordogne, France- A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc. Think Bordeaux. This medium to full bodied wine has notes of tart cherry and dried earth finishing with a touch of peppery minerality and dusty tannins. A wine for grilled steak.
*2017 Bacchus Chardonnay, California- “The fruit is sourced from the Central Coast. Vinified 90% in stainless steel and 10% neutral oak barrels, then aged 6 months in neutral oak and stainless steel. Medium bodied and crisp, with subtle apple, pear and citrus notes. A touch of mineral comes through in the lively, balanced and long finish.” (Winery notes)
2016 Bacchus Cabernet Sauvignon, California - Made from 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot with fruit sourced from Paso Robles and Sonoma County, this wine is aged in 50% steel tank and 50% neutral oak for 10 months.  Medium bodied with ripe plum, black currant, and blackberry flavors with a touch of mint. A bit of cedar and dusty earth emerge on the long, layered finish. Gulpable, user-friendly Cabernet!
2016 Marotti Campi Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Superiore, Marche, Italy- Aromas of wild flowers with notes of green apple and Asian pear with hints of almond. A very savory take on Verdicchio with good underlying acidity.
2016 Domaine Sauger Cheverny Blanc, Loire, France - Made from 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Chardonnay. (Chevernay Blanc must be made from a blend of those grapes.)  The Sauvignon Blanc brings the zest and the Chardonnay lends balance.  Pithy and zingy with citrus zest and guava notes.
2015 Segure Fitou, Languedoc, France-  Fitou is one of the oldest wine growing region is France going back to ancient Greek colonists. Fitou is a blend of Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah. IT IS a firm, well-structured wine with red and black fruit, spice and peppery -brambly fruit with plenty of heft It is an excellent companion to grilled meats or the famous dish of the region, cassoulet.
