Patrick’s Pick:
2018 Joseph Drouhin Macon-Lugny "Les Crays"
Burgundy, France

A rare, single-vineyard wine, “Les Crays” has a very charming bouquet with fresh citrus fruit, attractive scents of honeysuckle and nectarine emerging with time. The palate is well-balanced with subtle honey notes on the entry and this segues into a lovely, rounded, apricot and peach-tinged middle and finish that displays volume and great breeding. This is a very well-crafted Macon packed full of flavor.
Regular Price $24.99 per bottle, $299.88 per case
Sale Price $16.99 per bottle, $203.88 per case

Ellen’s Pick:
2014 10th Anniversary Bohème Pinot Noir
Sonoma Coast, California
Approachable, totally delicious bottle of wine, my new favorite Pinot! Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Enchanting aromas of purple grape, pomegranate, black cherry, baking spice, and sweet pipe smoke set the stage. Flat out terrific in the mouth, with alluring mid weight flavors of raspberry and black cherry and a hint of oak and feral gaminess. Smooth and polished in texture, with a quenching cut of acidity on the finish.
Regular Price $84.99 per bottle, $1019.88 per case
Sale Price $59.99 per bottle, $719.88 per case

Angelique's Pick:
2017 Yardstick Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley, California
Reminiscent of Scout's Honor by Venge in my opinion...love it!
Deep garnet; strawberry and red cherry in the nose with raspberry and blackberry accents. Broad mid-palate with blackberry and black cherry flavors. Soft and silky tannins. Shows a hint of walnut and plum in the finish.

Regular Price $44.99 per bottle, $539.88 per case
Sale Price: $34.99 per bottle, $419.88 per case

Sheree's Pick:
2015 Paul Hobbs "CrossBarn" Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley, California

“This is a layered and rich cabernet with currant and fresh-herb character. Some bark and black tea, too. Full-bodied, tight and tensioned with real focus and length. Delicious now but even better in 2020.”  93 Points, James Suckling
Regular Price $69.99 per bottle, $839.88 per case
Sale Price $39.99 per bottle, $479.88 per case

Mike's pick:
2018 Clos St. Fiacre Orleans Rosé
Orleans, Loire Valley, France
This is a blend of 60% Pinot Meunier and 40% Pinot Gris from the leading producer in the up-and-coming Orleans appellation in the Loire Valley. This dry rosé shows a beautiful complexity with light red fruit, a floral nose, and a bright acidity on the palate. Only 800 cases produced, this is a wine you'll want to have all summer and well into the fall...if it lasts that long!
Regular Price $29.99 per bottle, $359.88 per case
Sale Price $19.99 per bottle, $239.88 per case

Alex’s Pick:
NV New Age
Mendoza, Argentina
When a wine is made the "national drink" of an entire country, that's something special. When it's $9.99 a bottle, that makes it even sweeter! Speaking of sweet, this wine is naturally sweet, and even has some effervescence to it, making it bubbly and fun! To enjoy it like the Argentinians do, add ice and lime (known as a "Tincho Cocktail")! 
Regular Price $12.99 per bottle, $155.88 per case
Sale Price $9.99 per bottle, $119.88 per case

Sandy’s Pick:
2015 Les Vieilles Vignet Puligny- Montrachet
Puligny-Montrachet, France
This is great wine for a nice gathering of family or friends where you want to step up the standard wine selection from your everyday table offering. As a fan of White Burgundy, this is a favorite!  Vincent Girardin continues the winemaking tradition of his father and grandfather before him. This delicious offering has aromas of stone and citrus fruits. On the palate lemons, crisp apple along with mineral and oak notes abound. This is a medium bodied wine with excellent balance, with a lingering finishishing and smooth citrus mineral ending. Pairs well with an assortment of foods - even veal!
Regular Price $79.99 per bottle, $959.88 per case

Sale Price $39.99 per bottle, $479.88 per case
