Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Saint Claire 2015 – organic and biodynamic. An almost perfect warm weather white wine with acidity, lemon and apple fruits and a light tangy texture. The wine becomes more ripe as it opens up showing peach and apricot flavors at the end. 90 points Wine Spectator.
Les Costes Nobles Terres Rosé Côtes de Rhône 2016– Aromatic and seductive with tangy notes. Harmonious in the mouth, the wine releases a pleasant sensation of freshness with outstanding complexity and depth.
Caves du Roquebrun Roches Noires AOC Saint Chinian Languedoc Red 2013 – Powerful nose of red fruit and herbs. Rich, full fruit entry with lovely plum flavors that gradually give way to herbs and gentle tannins. Excellent structure, balance, and length. 87 points Wine Spectator.
Kiona Cabernet-Merlot 2013 – Smooth, refined tannins and a long finish. Supple dark berry and earth on the palate round out the experience. Selective blending from some of Washington’s finest vineyards along with careful oak aging yields a balanced, intricate wine.
Lunadoro Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2011 – This full-bodied red opens with aromas of mature plum, hay, underbrush and scorched earth. The ripe, juicy palate doles out layers of black cherry, strawberry, tobacco and cinnamon alongside chewy tannins. It’s already enjoyable but will also age well for several years. 90 points Wine Enthusiast.
