Red Wines:

Colome Malbec…
    This is a huge Malbec.  We have put this on the list to replace a Cabernet.  So all you Cabernet fans out there need to come and try this.  New Oak, deep dark red fruits, delicious!
SR Reserve Red Blend…
    This is a Red blend from Chile.  It blends Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Petite Verdot and Carmenere.  this wine is a super value and will change your mind about Chilean wines forever.
Capela Das Freiras Red Blend…
  Very big and full bodied red from Portugal.  This comes from the Allentejo region, the largest growing region in Portugal.  They use the Port grapes but ferment them dry.
 
Le Bine Valpolicella…
  Nice serious version of a Valpolicella.  Classic indigenous grapes from this region…Corvina and Rondinella.  The style is very fruit driven but a spicy back note.
St Gregory Pinot Noir….
   This is a big version of Pinot Noir.  It is an oak aged wine for 18 months.  Who does this kind of thing with a $17.99 Pinot Noir?
White Wines:
Chateau St. Michelle “Mimi” Chardonnay…
     Very well balanced wine from Washington State.  This wine focuses on the fruit framed by oak.  This is a single vineyard, meaning all the fruit is one vineyard, which is kind of rare for the price and quality.
Pigeonnier Dry Rose
     Spring will be here and everyone’s thought will turn to dry Rose.  Here is an advanced look into the wonderful world of refreshing Dry Roses.
 
Haut Bourg Muscadet…
  Melon Bourgogne grape done in a crisp refreshing style.  Loads of citrus and mineral notes.  This will be another one to keep in mind for the spring and summer months.
Fox Run Dry Riesling…
   Dry Riesling from New York.  This is a great example of what New York State can do with wine.  Very dry and food friendly.  We will see more from New York in the future.
Blue Fish Sweet Red
   Blend of Dornfelder and Cabernet, but don’t let the blend fool you.  This wine is sweet.  Bright red and black fruits with the sweet hit to the tongue.
