Patrick’s Pick:
2016 Mas Doix "Les Crestes"
Priorat, Spain 
"Les Crestes features 80% Garnacha and 10% each of Cariñena and Syrah, brought up in neutral French oak. Outstanding notes of black cherries, blackberries, graphite, lead pencil shavings, violets and beautiful minerality all emerge from the glass and this beauty is ripe, plump, rounded, and incredibly textured on the palate, with sweet tannin. It's a beautifully pure, sexy little fruit bomb to drink over the coming 4-5 years." 92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
Regular Price $39.99 per bottle, $479.88 per case
Sale Price $23.99 per bottle, $287.88 per case

Ellen’s Pick:
2016 Vina Robles Cabernet Sauvignon
Paso Robles, California
My favorite new Cabernet. Juicy, full-bodied goodness. Open the bottle and whoops...it's gone! Deep garnet hue, nose of black currant & dried herbs, full-bodied with cassis and blueberry flavors. Highlights chalky tannins with a good clean finish. This wine has lots of character that is impressive for the price.
Regular Price $29.99 per bottle, $359.88 per case
Sale Price $19.99 per bottle, $239.88 per case

Dawn's Pick:
2015 Argyle Vintage Brut
Willamette Valley, Oregon
As a lover of sparkling wine, the Argyle Brut turns any day into something special. Maybe it's the taste of fresh apples and buttered toast that dance on your tongue, or the quality to price value that we all look for. Either way this sparkling wine is pristine, showcasing the enticing generosity and definition the region has to offer. This vintage is Pinot Noir dominant, the richness and rounded peach nature is enhanced through the complexity of honey, cherry kernel and lingering anise. The middle palate is invigorated with dynamic acid backbone and edgy minerality, bringing balance and focus to the finish. Begs for another sip!
Regular Price $39.99 per bottle, 479.88 per case
Sale Price $19.99 per bottle, $239.88 per case

Alex’s Pick:
2015 Philotimo Red Blend
Napa Valley, California / Nemea, Greece
This very special bottle marks for first-ever blend of Greek and American grapes with Axios making up the American half! Classic California Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with Xinomavro, a lovely, acidic grape made in Nemea...The same way they've been producing the grape since 600 B.C.. What a combo!
Regular Price $59.99 per bottle, $719.88 per case
Sale Price $44.99 per bottle, $539.88 per case

Keith's Pick:
Michel Gassier “Cercius” Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge
Rhone Valley, France
Most of my experience is in beer and Bourbon, but this blew me away! From 80+ year old vines, a warm terroir of deep limestone soils topped with galets stones. Certified organic! “A Grenache-dominated blend that includes 13% Syrah and 12% Mourvèdre, the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Cercius is one big, mouthful of a wine that gives up huge notes of blackberries, peppery, roasted herbs and violets, Voluptuous, opulent and sexy, with no hard edge, sweet tannin, and a huge finish, it's a terrific wine.” 93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
Regular Price $19.99 per bottle, $239.88 per case
Sale Price $16.99 per bottle, $203.88 per case

Angelique's Pick:
2018 Badenhorst Secateurs Chenin Blanc
Swartland, South Africa
Excellent with Oysters, this wine is easy to love! Left on its lees for seven months with occasional stirring, the final wine is as deep and rich in flavor as its yellow hue predicts: It moves from waxy apple flavors to mango, wildflower honey and tangerine. 94 Points, Wine & Spirits
Regular Price $16.99 per bottle, $203.88 per case
Sale Price: $14.99 per bottle, $179.88 per case
