2017 Domaine Roblin "Origine" Sancerre
Loire Valley, France

2016 Terroir Les Gras Moutons Muscadet
Loire Valley, France
The bouquet on the 2016 version is excellent, wafting from the glass in a classic blend of bread fruit, ocean breeze, dried flowers, a gentle touch of sweet nuttiness (from its lees contact) and a beautifully complex base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, crisp and complex, with fine mineral drive, a good core and a long, vibrant and briny finish

Station 2 – Winesellers, LTD. – Christina Thornton

2016 Familia Zuccardi Q Chardonnay
Mendoza, Argentina
Yellow color with green hues. It shows notes of white fruits such as peaches, pears and apples; also some minerality notes. Tasty and fresh in the mouth. Attractive mineral character and vibrant evolution. Well balanced between acidity and fruit and a lovely long finish.
Regular Price $24.99 per bottle, $299.88 per case

2014 Familia Zuccardi Q Cabernet Sauvignon
Mendoza, Argentina
Intense purple color with red hues. Great intensity with ripe red and black fruits notes such as blueberry and cassis. Some black and red pepper notes. Full bodied with great structure. Very long finish.
Regular Price $24.99 per bottle, $299.88 per case

2015 Familia Zuccardi Q Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
“The 2015 Malbec Q is sourced from La Consulta (Altamira) and Vista Flores. This wine has changed since 2010; now only 30% to 50% of the wine is oaked and the rest is matured in cement vats. The oak is imperceptible, and there are plenty of aromas of violets and blueberries with some aromatic herbs, all fruit. What Sebastian Zuccardi looks for is to have some herbal/countryside aromas and a lively palate with good acidity, which is what you find here. This is really tasty, with a fine, chalky tannin (from Altamira?) and just plain great.”  91 Points, Wine Advocate
Regular Price $24.99 per bottle, $299.88 per case

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

2018 Secateurs Chenin Blanc
Swartland, South Africa
The delicious Secateurs Chenin Blanc will surely ignite a love affair with South African wines. Made from grapes grown on 60 to 70 year old vines, it oozes floral and honey flavors but it is still pleasantly dry. Delicious alone, but would be a great addition to anything cheesy or with seafood. Secateurs Chenin Blanc is an absolute bargain for such a great wine from such a fantastic wine region. Pick up a bottle and fall in love. 90 Points, Wine Spectator
Regular Price $18.99 per bottle, $227.88 per case
Sale Price $14.99 per bottle, $179.88 per case

2016 Secateurs Red Blend
Swartland, South Africa
Shiraz, Cinsault and Grenache

“Shiraz-based blend, with 21% Cinsault and 8% Grenache, offers earthy notes of fresh mint, white pepper and herbal fynbos, all spicing up the red cherry and raspberry fruit core. A delicate whiff of sweet smoke is seductive, while the palate offers more earthy notes of tilled earth and currant leaf that carry through to the finish. Fine but structured tannins lend a velvety texture.”  90 Points, Wine Enthusiast, Editors’ Choice
Regular Price $18.99 per bottle, $227.88 per case
Sale Price $14.99 per bottle, $179.88 per case

2015 A A Badenhorst Family Wines Red Blend
Swartland, South Africa
“The aromas are perfumed, peppery, spicey, smokey and exhibit ripe red fruit notes. As always the palate texture of this style of wine is supple, smooth on the entry but with enough grip and freshness to finish dry and refreshing. In the mouth the texture and fineness of fruit tannin and drinkability of the wine is immediately evident.” 90 Points, Wine Spectator
Regular Price $44.99 per bottle, $539.88 per case
Sale Price $39.99 per bottle, $479.88 per case

 

Station 4 – Dalla Terra – Katie Dorazio

2015 Coltibuono Chianti Classico Riserva
Tuscany, Italy
“Intense, deep ruby red color with subtle glimmers of garnet. The wine shows a splendid, full nose with hints of blackberries and pleasant notes of tobacco and spice. In the mouth, the wine is soft with an elegant, fresh finish and a persistent, generous acidity in the aftertaste. Full of mature tannins and fruitiness.” 92 Points, James Suckling

Sale Price $36.99 per bottle, $443.88 per case

2016 AIA Vecchia “Lagone” Toscana Rosso
Tuscany, Italy
In the glass, the wine is deep ruby with purple hues. On the nose, the wine is delicate with notes of cherry, vanilla and herbs. On the palate, it is dry, structured and elegant with flavors of plum, ripe cherries, wild berries and a hint of spice, followed by a lengthy and smooth finish that begs for food.

2015 Poliziano Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
