2019 Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc $9.99
Very bright pale greenish yellow color. Honeydew, lime and lychee-scented nose that also reveals hints of wild asparagus and fresh lemon verbena. On the palate, this extroverted wine is lively, fresh, and gentle. The quintessential Sauvignon Blanc.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Spectator

2017 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley $29.98
Distinctive, with blueberry and açaí berry fruit flavors, infused liberally with sassafras, bay leaf and sweet spice notes. A beautiful rendition of mountain fruit, laced with racy acidity and carried by smoldering tannins. Shows impressive detail and energy for a 2017. Best from 2021 through 2035.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator

2017 Chateau Pavie-Decesse St Emilion $149.99
This is laden with cassis and warmed plum compote notes, infused liberally with violet and anise accents. Gains depth and richness with air, yet maintains a racy edge due to its mouthwatering acidity and perfectly embedded chalky spine on the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2040. Tasted twice, with consistent notes
Rated 97/100 The Wine Spectator
