    Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Riesling 2010
    Sold Out $16.99
    2014 vintage available for $16.99
    I'd like to start by saying I tend to prefer reds to whites and therefore I'm extremely selective in which whites I enjoy. That being said, I found this Riesling unimpressive. It was heavier and had a fullness/thickness to it that seemed unique but didn't wow me. Also, noticed more traces of alcohol on the finish than I'm accustomed to with a Riesling. I tend to like something a bit more fresh, light, crisp, and clean on the finish in my Rieslings. For example, I profoundly preferred the Firestone Riesling 2010 to this bottle.

    Peter Lehmann Clancy's 2009
    Sold Out $15.99
    2010 vintage available for $14.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    High quality at this price point. Big, rich, and juicy to the nose after a swirl. Fruitful flavors of raspberry and plum with a hint of pepper and spice on an unparalleled and mesmerizingly smooth finish. Didn't notice any hints of chocolate as I've read others mentions, but it wasn't missed. Paired this very well with a blackened pepper pan seared ahi tuna. Complimented the dish divinely.

    What a delightful surprise this wine was for only $9.99! Citrus notes and a hint of honey followed by a very clean & crisp finish that wasn't too sweet or too long. Perfectly balanced riesling in my humble opinion and for the price - an absolute steal! I'd buy this again in a heartbeat.

    La Marca Prosecco
    $17.00 $14.99

    • bubbly, sparkling & champagne
    • WS90
    Bubbles tingle the tongue initially and quickly subside making way for a wonder touch of baked apple. The baked apple is quick and fades into sweet notes of grapefruit. This is an excellent prosecco; very well balanced - slightly sweet and dry but not extreme on either front.

    Four Vines The Maverick Zinfandel 2008
    Sold Out $18.29
    2010 vintage available for $18.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    The taste is big and bold yet fruity and smooth. An initial fruit flavor of cherry is followed by blackberry, pepper and spice. Smooth finish with a hint of alcohol. Very good wine for the price. I would buy this bottle again for the price.
