    Zocker Paragon Vineyard Gruner Veltliner 2013
    $20.00 $17.99
    Save $2.01 (10%)
    Style: Light & Crisp
    Pair with: seafood, shellfish
    Lovely! You want to keep sipping this. Has the typical white pepper notes, loads of minerality, a slight tropical note on the finish, but super refreshing and hard to put down. For this price it's a staple in the cellar.

    A beautiful balance of old world and new world Barolo styles. Classic red and black fruits, rose petals, licorice, dried herbs and cocoa in the nose. The palate is elegant but with a plush texture, in some sort of perfect structural balance. So much going on, and a cry for food on this one, as it would benefit from something slow roasted....

    Cabreo Il Borgo 2011
    $60.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    A steal for those who want a stylish, age-worthy, structured and quality-driven Super Tuscan. The Il Borgo offers rich, ripe fruit, oak spice, mineral, licorice and floral components, a fleshy mouthfeel backed by sturdy tannins. Super long finish. Would love to taste in 10 years!

    Craggy Range Winery Kidnappers Vineyard Chardonnay 2012
    $22.99
    Style: Fruity & Smooth
    My new favorite Chardonnay! It's balanced and textured - crisp, yet creamy. As a white Burgundy lover, i seek that same mineral-driven + creamy texture balance and this delivers at a fantastic price.

    Love this wine! This is a great wine for those who love Sauvignon Blanc or white Bordeaux blends. The acidity is excellent, the aromas and flavors are herbal and citrus-driven, a wonderful texture and finish. Perfect for summer :)

    WOW! this is a tremendous wine. Had the opportunity to taste the '06 and it was absolutely wonderful. Sage, sweet spice, dark black fruit, and a smoky/savory characteristic. But that's when it ages... when young, you get full on crushed black fruits, black pepper and sage/eucalyptus notes. amazing body and structure but rich and dense fruit. Finish goes on and on.

    Definitely a rich & creamy Chardonnay! But the acidity is excellent. Lots of tropical fruit, citrus and touch of vanilla spice... Wonderfully long finish. Fantastic for those who love richly textured Chardonnay!

    Style: Fruity & Smooth
    One of my favorite Chardonnays for the price. Hard to find under $20 Chardonnay that does not have a "bite" on the finish. This is perfectly rounded and balanced, with a delightful match of fruit & oak and fantastic acidity to keep it refreshing.
