    Strawberry and roses! The aromas are berry & floral, the palate is firm and full-bodied, with similar flavors. Great balance and finish. The wine is made in the traditional method, with a cepage of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Can you beat the label and price? Try for parties, bridal showers, baby showers, weddings... love a good wine with a great package!

    Susana Balbo Signature Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
    $25.00 $19.99
    Save $5.01 (20%)
    Style: Big & Bold
    Love this Cabernet - it's a true cab though, so not for those who prefer sweet or smooth tannins. These tannins will dry your mouth out. But not before giving you loads of cassis, plum and violets, as well as a burst of dark chocolate. Wonderful balance and finish. Far better than many cabs twice the price.

    Wow! This is at the top of the top on my list of best Champagne. I typically enjoy Krug style, and while this has a full bodied richness, it remains extremely delicate. Pear, brioche, vanilla and then the creamiest texture/mousse you can imagine. LOVE.

    Loveblock Pinot Gris 2013
    $21.99
    Style: Fruity & Smooth
    Oregon-style Pinot Gris, with an aromatic nose of ripe pear, nectarine, some floral notes and a stony mineral characteristic. Palate similar, but with a bright acidity that keeps it fresh. Lovely and aromatic.

    Masi Brolo di Campofiorin Oro 2009
    $23.99
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    Big and wonderful. This wine shows it's true Italian with it's excellent acidity, dried fruit characteristics and those "dusty" tannins. It's a bold wine, with floral and earth-tinged notes. A classic.

    Treana Red Blend 2012
    $36.99 $25.99
    Save $11.00 (30%)
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    same wine, different label! This is what I call a "Christmas" wine because it reminds you of what everything smells like during Christmas! Allspice and clove dominate, with ripe red and black fruits as well. The palate is lovely and rich, but with enough of a backbone to hold it up. Super enjoyable wine!

    Love this wine because it is so different. Floral and sweet herb aromatics backed by a bright cherry. The palate has great acidity with tart cherry, floral and herbal tones. Excellent structure and a great finish. This is not a typical CA red.

    De Wetshof Bon Vallon Chardonnay 2013
    $18.99
    Style: Fruity & Smooth
    this GOOD Chardonnay lover is impressed. Hard to find something I like under $20 so I'm constantly searching. BUt this... Burgundian in style, it has that green apple crispness, and mineral notes (wet stone style). Bright, refreshing, yet a creamy texture on the palate and a balanced finish with no "bite." Lovely.

    Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
    $25.00 $19.99
    Save $5.01 (20%)
    Style: Big & Bold
    For a Napa Cab under $20, this is ideal. This has ripe fruit, a dried herb note, touch of cedar on the nose. Palate is rich, ripe fruit, but with nice structure to it - a good backbone and nice length. All around balanced, solid Cab.
