Station 1 – Vintage 59 – Deb Lewis

2016 Domaine Alban Roblin Sancerre
Loire Valley, France
This is one of the finest not only Sancerres, but also Sauvignon Blancs, that you will ever come across at such an affordable price. Exotic white flower, dried apricot and mineral aromas swirl out of the glass. It is bright and crisp up front with that supreme minerality Sancerre is known for. On the mid-palate, a soft, white peach flavor envelops that mineral spine and rounds out the body of the wine. It finishes with a richness and longevity that seems to coat your palate for minutes. Every sip is exquisite and makes you want more.
Regular Price $34.99 per bottle, $419.88 per case
Sale Price $24.99 per bottle, $299.88 per case

2015 Château Haut-La Péreyre Rouge
Bordeaux Superieur, France
75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon

Raised in tank without fining and bottled with a light filtration. This is a domain wine with an aromatic profile of graphite and earth that speaks clearly of Bordeaux—and one that is eminently drinkable. The finish is silky and long. 
"This is a perfumed juicy wine with attractive acidity and plenty of ripe berry fruits. It has light tannins, just enough to give the wine its shape and tannic edge." Wine Enthusiast.

The marvelous slate terroirs of the Faugères area enable the production of the most interesting, long-ageing wines. “Les Collines” is deep, concentrated and rich. The aromas are marked by black fruits, cassis, cherries and sweet spices. Black berry fruit, Morello cherries and sweet spices develop on the dense and structured palate.  Finishes soft and polished with silky tannins and a spicy aftertaste.

Station 2 – Winesellers, LTD. – Christina Thornton

2014 Familia Zuccardi “Q” Cabernet Sauvignon
Mendoza, Argentina
This Cabernet Sauvignon has an intense purple color and is full of ripe red and black fruit aromas, such as blueberries and cassis. “The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Q is a blend of grapes from Gualtallary and la Consulta, both in the Valle de Uco, with only 30% of the wine matured in 500-liter French oak barrels. Tasted next to other 2015s and 2016, I immediately noticed the higher ripeness of 2014. There is good roundness in the palate with dusty, fine-grained tannins coming through as juicy and tasty…” The Wine Advocate.

Station 3 – Broadbent Selections, Inc. -- Lisa Norris

2017 Beaumont Chenin Blanc
South Africa
Beaumont's Chenin Blanc was made from 100% Bot River fruit, capturing the full flavor and potential that the terroir has to offer. It is a delicious example of cooler climate Chenin Blanc fermented in concrete and stainless steel tanks. The 2017 vintage was one of the driest years in Beaumont's history. Due to that, the quality of the fruit was amazing. Tiny berries, high natural acid levels and great fruit purity lead to a wine that is dry, fresh and delicious!

2015 Warwick Estate Pinotage

2015 Casa Ferreirinha Vinha Grande Red
Douro, Portugal
This is an attractive, juicy wine. It has blackberry fruit flavors along with already balanced tannins. Coming from vines in the Douro Superior, it is rich while also fresh and fruity. The wine could age further, although its pure flavors and integration say that it can be drunk now.
