2011 Eroica Riesling, Washington State$19.99
Eroica is an elegant off-dry Washington Riesling that has blazed a trail for high-end American Riesling.

2007 Jemrose Syrah, California$29.99
Exhibiting awesome aromatics, the 2007 Jemrose Syrah Cardiac Hill Bennett Valley sports deep pure blackberry fruit that intermixed with dusty cocoa, minerals and underbrush aromas. Poise and elegant, the wine is medium bodied with solid concentration, rich fruit and a firm, tannic finish.

2011 Domaine Du Pere Caboche Chateauneuf Du Pape Blanc, France$29.99
This refreshingly oak-free white Châteauneuf’ is one of the best around. It is made from a blend 40% Bourboulenc, 25% each of Clairette and Grenache Blanc and 5% each of Picpoul and Roussanne and is fresh, clean and fruity.  On the nose there is apricot, fresh herbs and a wonderful floral note. With a light crisp palate of stone fruit, and lemon zest and green apple.  One of our favorite whites for thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

2008 Craggy Range Te Muna Road Pinot Noir, New Zealand $34.99
The delightful 2008 Te Muna Pinot Noir has well-defined nose with raspberry, strawberry and a touch of crushed stones and demonstrates far more clarity than Craggy’s other Pinot Noir ‘08s. The palate is medium-bodied with firm but brittle tannins, slightly lower acidity than expected but with crisp cranberry and raspberry leaf towards the finish. This Pinot has delightful purity and sense of panache. Drink now-2018

2011 Boneshaker Zinfandel, California- $19.99
Grown from Lodi’s old Zinfandel vines, the third vintage of Boneshaker is bigger and bolder than ever. A mix of brick red and purple in the glass, this wine’s aroma draws you in with scents of dark plums and black licorice with slight hints of vanilla incense. A taste of this wine reveals intense flavors of blackberry underlined by cherry cola, framed by chewy tannins and a luscious mouthfeel. This full bodied wine is a palate pleasing potable from start to finish.

90 Plus Cellars Lot 8 Garnacha, Spain – $11.99
A complete wine, with aromas of forest fruit shrouded in chocolate, vanilla, milk, coffee, nuts and wood spice. The wine has a broad palate of earthy blue fruits and integrated oak; well put together, ripe and nicely open with a lingering spicy finish
