More info on the wines below....
2010 Chateau Landereau Bordeaux Superieur Rouge...$17.99 
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc
Founded in 1959, Chateau Landereau is currently run by 3rd generation owner Bruno Baylet. Nearly 200 acres are farmed in the gravelly hillsides of Sadirac, 12 miles southeast of Bordeaux, in the Entre-Deux-Mers region. The wines are impressive, and offer the hallmark character of traditional Bordeaux in a sleek and modern profile. Tasting Notes:
Intense and concentrated, with ripe, spicy, cassis and dark
fruit character. Well-structured but with soft, sweet tannins. Produced in a polished, modern style, with a long, persistent finish. Excellent with red meats (hangar steak, braised lamb
shank) and richly flavored fowl (tea smoked duck).

2010 Chateau de Crain Bordeaux Superieur...$13.99

Classic Bordeaux Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec with vines 50 years of age!  A wine of exceptional elegance, complexity and finesse. Offers, deep, layered, dark fruit character on the nose with suave tannins and a lingering finish.
Serve With: Excellent with red meats and ripe cheeses.

2014 Chateau Val Beylie Plaisir Bourdeaux Rouge...$15.99
Deep purple color with clean, fruit forward nose, smooth in the mouth with red berry candied fruit with hints of smoke and good acidity, nice and balanced on the finish.
Organically grown grapes from estate vineyards owned by Christophe Pont.
'Plaisir' means “pleasure” in English. Grapes are hand picked in small boxes for delivery to the winery. Grapes are fermented with native yeast in stainless steel tanks and left on the skins for two weeks the topped up and conserved. Unoaked, aged in stainless steel for the winter and spring then bottled before next harvest.

2013 Sélection Laurence Féraud Côtes du Rhône...$13.99
In addition to running the legendary Châteauneuf-du-Pape estate Domaine du Pegau with her father Paul, Laurence Féraud manages a successful negociant wine business under the "Sélection Laurence Féraud" label. This Cotes du Rhone shows of the amazing Syrah from the Rhone area as it is 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache. This classic Côtes du Rhône offers densely layered black fruit aromas with a characteristic spiciness on the nose.

2015 Domaine de Servans Cotes du Rhone....$13.99
With so many over ripe and over extracted Grenache-based wines on the market, Domaine de Servans’ Côtes du Rhône is a great example of what a handcrafted wine, made primarily from Grenache, should be. Red fruit and garrigue notes dominate the nose. In the mouth, red cherry and black pepper flavors mix with hints of blackberry and cassis flavors from the Syrah. The combination of fruit, spice, and soft tannins make this a great everyday Côtes du Rhône. This is a perfect wine for a casual meal of burgers, barbeque, or pizza.

2015 Mure Alsace Pinot Noir Signature....$19.99
"Very pure notes of cherry and strawberry pervade this wine. They are perfumed with a slight conifer scent that spells freshness and lifted ease. The palate has an unforced, elegant concentration. This is charming and fresh, with convincing depth, purity and a lasting, fresh finish." -- this is the review from the 2014 vintage 90/100 Wine Enthusiast.  2015 not rated yet.

2014 Faiveley Mercurey Red Burgundy...$27.99
Classic Old World Pinot Noir! Juicy and expressive with an amazingly great price. Aromas of sour cherry, wild violets and plush layers of dark berry. Medium-bodied and complex. Pair with roast chicken or turkey.
Rated 90/100 Natalie Maclean

2014 Longefay Brouilly Cru Beaujolais....$19.99
Some of the best vineyards in Brouilly from 20-110 year old vines!
A classic example of Brouilly. The wine has rich red raspberry, and mulberry flavors, with undertones of blue fruit. The finish is unexpectedly silky, long and lingering. In spite of Annie and Bernard’s understated demeanor, this is a wine with considerable elegance and sophistication. Typical of Beaujolais, the combination of soft tannins and bright fruit make this one of the most versatile food wines you can find. It is perfect with everything from pork, to pizza, and even barbeque.

2012 Domaine de Barroubio Minervois Rouge...$13.99
35% Syrah * 35% Grenache * 30% Carignan
Some vines are 110 years old
1600 cases produced. Dominated by wild briary fruit, and exotic spices in the nose. The wine’s wild, exotic side, comes from the Carignan, while the dark black fruit flavors comes from the Syrah These two grapes are then complimented by the addition of Grenache, which adds hints of red cherry and black pepper.

2014 Domaine Cabirau Serge and Nicolas Maury Sec...$19.99
The exceedingly elegant 2014 Maury Sec Serge & Nicolas sports a vibrant, transparent ruby color as well as lots of kirsch, black raspberry, violets, garrigue and potpourri-like aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, silky and layered, with fine tannin, it shows the vintage’s more mid-weight style, yet is perfectly balanced and loaded with charm. Drink it anytime over the coming 4-5 years.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate

2013 Chateau de Lancyre Coste d'Aleyrac...$17.99
I was able to taste the 2013 Pic Saint Loup la Coste d’Aleyrac multiple times, with slightly erratic results. At its best, it has beautiful black raspberry, licorice, peppery herbs and spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, elegant and seamless style on the palate. A blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Carignan, drink it anytime over the coming 5-7 years.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate

2013 Le Cirque Cotes de Catalanes Rouge...$13.99
Tasted from bottle, the 2013 Côtes Catalanes is a smoking blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the balance Carignan. Aged all in tank and coming from 50-year-old vines, it has tons of black raspberry, kirsch, licorice and spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, pure, polished style on the palate. It’s hard to resist now, and I see no reason to delay gratification. This will compete with 20-30 dollar southern Rhônes.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate
