2013 Silver Palm Merlot, North Coast, California 
Wine Enthusiast 90pts- Sale Price $17.09/bottle, Was $18.99

Truly a remarkable Merlot, the Silver Palm is a well-structured wine with supple tannins and a long soft finish. Dark fruit flavors of blackberries, boysenberries, and blueberries coupled earthy tones like tobacco and limestone make this wine extremely full-bodied and enjoyable to all types of wine drinkers. 

"This wine is inky dark in color, potent in flavor and huge in structure. The aromas are like smoke, dried herbs, and blackberry, the flavors are concentrated in black currant, while the texture is saturated with fine tannins that make it almost chewy. This is full bodied, dry, and needs either time to mellow out or some juicy protein alongside." 90pts Wine Enthusiast

2013 Fowles Wine "Are You Game?" Shiraz, Australia: Robert Parker 91pts- Sale Price $16.19/bottle, Was $17.99

 This Shiraz is deep crimson in color with fresh purple hues. On the nose ripe plum and vanilla spice play with dark cherry, chocolate and a hint of apricot. The palate is full bodied with rich red fruits and great length of flavor.
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Are You Game? Shiraz offers notes of blackberries, black cherries, cassis, blueberries, some black pepper, violets and a hint of cloves. Medium to full-bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, it offers beautifully rounded, perfectly ripe tannins and a long, perfumed finish. An absolute bargain of a cracking Shiraz!" 91pts Robert Parker

2014 Leese Fitch Cabernet Sauvignon, California: Tasting Panel 91pts- Sale Price $10.79/bottle, Was $11.99

 "Sourced from California's specific growing regions to hit the sweet spot on its varietals, this vintage opened up in stages, starting with an iron, earthy, cherry-tobacco on the nose. Much of the Cab was sourced from Lodi, which brought out the ripe cherry and a touch of mint. The dry tannins that inched in may be the influence of the Cabernet Sauvignon grown in cooler Northern California areas such as Clarksburg. Paso Robles offered the Merlot-its mocha and tart red fruit showing through. Fine acidity and an undertone of oak-caramel and baking spices keep this food-worthy red tones and lively." 91pts Tasting Panel

2015 De Wetshof Limestone Hill, Chardonnay, South Africa: Wine Advocate 91pts- Sale Price $16.19/bottle, Was $17.99

"The Limestone Hill Chardonnay never sees oak, and offers impeccably pure, refreshing apple, peach and lemon fruit, a lovely leesy richness of texture, and a nutty, chalky, fruit-filled finish of imposing length. Understated and less tropical than some of the better un-oaked Chardonnays, this wine possesses far better balance and sheer drinkability-not to mention more finesse-than 99% of the world's Chardonnay I have experienced." Direct Quote from Robert Parker
