    Chateau de Campuget Costieres de Nimes Tradition Rose 2011
    Sold Out $10.99
    2014 vintage available for $10.99
    Fresh, full of bright red fruit and a lovely minerality. Very refreshing, not too heavy, and makes you feel a bit like you're in the south of France. All you need is a plate of olives doused in herbs de provence and you'll be set :)

    Jim Barry Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
    Sold Out $19.99
    2012 vintage available for $19.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    Love love love this wine. It is a delicious Australian Cabernet, with velvety tannins, ripe yet bright fruit and a lovely hint of eucalyptus, which is the hallmark of Coonawarra Cab! Delicious stuff - easy to drink on its own or with a number of foods.

    Gloria Ferrer Blanc de Noirs
    $21.99
    Pair with: Poultry, Pasta > White Sauce/Seafood, Risotto > Primavera
    this is such a delightful sparkling wine. It is clean and refreshing, but also slightly fuller bodied, due to the fact that it's made from red grapes (hence the name, Blanc de Noirs). I am a fan of this wine for everyday food pairing and any time you need a little bubbly to celebrate (showers, birthdays, brunches, etc).

    Allegrini Palazzo della Torre 2008
    Sold Out $15.99
    2010 vintage available for $21.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    It's one of those wines that goes down almost too easy... but in such a delicious way :) Ripe fruits, a rich texture and a dose of spice make this a balanced, harmonious wine that lingers on the finish. It's a great wine to pair with many foods, or just drink on its own. I wouldn't mind having this as my house red!

    Duboeuf Morgon Jean Descombes 2010
    Sold Out $16.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    Pair with: Beef > Burgers
    This is a hefty wine for Beaujolais! It has a round texture, richly ripe fruits, a touch of herb and spice. It has a delightful finish and is a rock star of a wine. It was a favorite in a recent cru line up!

    Duboeuf Fleurie Domaine des Quatre Vents 2010
    Sold Out $15.19
    Style: Light & Fruity
    Pair with: Risotto > Mushroom, Beef > Burgers
    I really enjoyed this wine - the nose was super aromatic and floral, but with lots of spice and cherry, too. You could mistake this one for a light-bodied Pinot Noir. Great with any mushroom dish as it has a lovely earthy component to it. Or throw it with a delicious burger for a treat :)

    Chehalem 3 Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009
    Sold Out $23.99
    2012 vintage available for $31.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    Opened this last night to pair with work (meaning I was drinking it on its own while typing away). It was definitely seductive. Deliciously ripe fruits, silky smooth texture, yet vibrant at the same time. Spicy or heavy foods will overpower the fruit, so pair it with something mild (roast chicken, pork chops, etc) and you'll be in heaven.

    Argiolas Costamolino Vermentino 2010
    Sold Out $13.99
    2013 vintage available for $16.99
    Style: Light & Crisp
    Love this wine! It's so very complex, but not overwhelming. Zesty is the right word for the acidity, but there is texture and weight in the mouthfeel, with lots of citrus and tropicality going on. I'd love to have this with richer or spicy fish dishes as it can hold its own.
