2019 David Finlayson Cabernet Sauvignon...$19.99
Stellenbosch, South African
90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc
Fresh and light on its feet. Polished black / red fruit flavours. Young tannin on the dry, long finish. Very attractive.
Rated 92/100 Decanter Magazine
“Aromatic, serious and still youthful, David Finlayson’s Cabernet offers a lot of flavour an structure for the price. Textured, deeply coloured and plush with dark cherry and fresh herb flavours and stylish oak. 2021-26”
Rated 90/100 Tim Atkin, Master of Wine

2019 Vina Robles Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles $19.98
This is a rich and thoroughly satisfying Cab, starting with aromas of roasted boysenberry, cocoa, violet and toasty oak on the nose. The palate is cohesive and neatly woven, with rich black fruit, mocha and espresso flavors that are wrapped in firm but balanced tannins.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Enthusiast

2020 Guarda Rios Red Blend Portugal $14.99
"Ripe vine fruits, blackberry, chocolate and vanilla on the nose followed by juicy acidity in the mouth with ripe, supple tannins and notes of black olive, tobacco and garrigue on the palate."
Rated 97/100 Decanter Magazine
Platinum Medal

2020 Novellum Chardonnay France $12.99
A richer styled wine (I've compared this cuvée to a Chardonnay from Mark Aubert), the 2020 Novellum has a medium gold hue as well as a rich, powerful bouquet of caramelized lemon, honeyed almonds, candle wax, and toasted bread. Rich, medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, and balanced, this is another no brainer purchase.
Rated 94/100 Jeb Dunnuck
