Highly expressive aromatics of passion fruit and orange blossom, with flavors of star fruit, tangerine and apple on a balanced, crisp mineral finish.

 

Pike Road Pinot Noir

Willamette, OR – $19.65

Fresh cranberry and raspberry fruit is framed by herb-tinged tannins

 

Gonzaga Terre di San Leonardo

The aromas are alcohol and fruit-rich when the wine is young, later mellowing with bottle age into ripe plum fruit layered over a faintly grassy background note.

 

Truchard Cabernet Sauvignon Carneros

Napa Valley, CA – $33.95

A distinct Cabernet nose of black cherries, ripe plum, and cassis; with hints of cedar and vanilla. The mouth is layered with flavors of raspberry, red currants, and plum jam. Ripe tannins focus the palate and provide a lengthy finish of spice and red fruit.
