Patrick’s Pick:
2017 Clos De La Roilette Fleurie
Beujolais, France
A beautiful bottle of wine...I love it...bravo! "The 2016 Fleurie is more expressive than its youthful 2017 sibling, offering up a complex bouquet of sweet cherries, dark chocolate, raspberry prserve and wood smoke. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a supple, giving, even open-knit profile by Coudert's standards." 93 Points Wine Advocate

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

Dawn's Pick:
2015 Gamba Rosso Veronese IGP Campedel
Veneto, Italy
One of the best wines under $20 in the store! Full bodied red wine with cherry, almond and vanilla aromas. It is produced in the wine estate "Le Quare" on the rolling hill of Gnirega, one of the best places in the Valpolicella classica area.
Regular Price $24.99 per bottle, $203.88 per case
Sale Price $19.99 per bottle, $299.88 per case

Alex’s Pick:
2016 Old Zin Vines
Lodi, California
This is a classic Lodi wine with a delicious expression of Lodi's unique terroir, I'm a big fan!
A robust Zinfandel from the region’s signature 50-100 year-old vines. Jammy with raspberry, milk chocolate, baking spices and mocha flavors, soft tannins and a supple mouth feel.
Sale Price $12.99 per bottle, $155.88 per case

Keith's Pick:
2015 J. Bookwalter "Reader's" Cabernet Sauvignon
Columbia Valley, Washington
This beautiful Cabernet is big, full bodied and very jammy. This is a very fruit foward Cabernet from Washington State with nice, smooth, delicate tannins and is exceptionally easy to drink, even though the weather is finally breaking this red is actually a year round, drinkable wine. The wine maker draws the grapes from five different regions across Washington and it definitly makes for a great wine. Wine Spectator ranked this wine #69 on it's top 100 wines of 2018. We bought the last of the 2015 vintage so get your bottles now because when it's gone, it will be gone. Cheers!

Angelique's Pick:
2017 Scout's Honor Red Wine
Napa Valley, California
This wine is so lush, smooth and nicely balanced...produced by Venge...need I say more? This is a killer wine that sells for a song for as good as it is, with a delicious blend of 63% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah, 16% Charbono and 9% Syrah!  Inky purple with blackberry and cassis fruit, licorice, incense and graphite, the wine is full-bodied, unctuously textured and a thrilling mouthful of wine that satisfies both the hedonistic and intellectual senses. Kudo’s!
Regular Price $59.99 per bottle, $719.88 per case
Sale Price: $49.99 per bottle, $599.88 per case
