2016 Terra d’Oro Pinot Grigio, Santa Barbara, Central Coast, California – Regularly $14.99

Sunny, seaside, beautiful Santa Barbara County is a great match for Pinot Grigio. Terra d’Oro Pinot Grigio entices with a nose of ripe, bright pear and clover blossom. Rich and dense, the mouth oozes with juicy pear and stone fruit flavors, finishing with an elegant touch of toasted French oak. Try pairing this delightful wine with a mild cheese and fruit plate.

Critical Acclaim 2016 – Wine Enthusiast 86 Points

The aromas of this full-bodied sweet-seeming wine are floral and honey-like, followed by rich ripe honeydew melon and peach-syrup flavors and a soft mouth-clinging texture. It’s not the usual style, but tasty in its own right.

 

2016 Napa Cellars Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley, California – Regularly $15.99

Aromas of vibrant gooseberry, pineapple and fresh pink grapefruit followed by flavors of pear, guava, passion fruit, lime, sweet clover and melon.

Critical Acclaim 2016 – Tasting Panel 90 Points

A fragrant mélange of lime blossom, peach, candied pineapple and kiwi. Fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks, the liquid is lightweight with standout tropical-fruit notes. A creaminess on the mid-palate softens the mineral tones and works with a marvelous acidity.

Critical Acclaim 2016 – Wine Enthusiast 90 Points

Stainless-steel aging retains a welcome crispness in this wine, which evolves in the glass into a medium-bodied, fleshy expression of peach, melon and butter. It’s well integrated and approachable.

 

2017 Proemio Chardonnay, Mendoza, Argentina (ORGANIC) – Regularly $9.99

Proemio – Prologue in old Medieval Spanish, stands for kick- start or first page. The 2017 Proemio Chardonnay shows clear yellow color with green hues and intense aromas of pineapple, peach, banana and hints of vanilla. In the palate this Chardonnay shows fresh fruit flavors with a crisp acidity, a creamy texture and a balanced finish. Aging: 30% aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.

 

2016 Folie à Deux Chardonnay, Russian River, Sonoma County, California – Regularly $16.99

The Folie à Deux co-owners are ex-psychiatrists. Folie à Deux literally means ”a madness shared by two.” The fruit for this Chardonnay was selected from seven premier vineyards throughout the Russian River Valley. Following harvest, the grapes were fermented in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels to maintain bright acidity, add complexity and showcase the variety’s rich fruit flavors.  Indicative of its cool climate origins, this wine has a bright acidity beneath notes of pineapple, peach, satsuma, orange blossom, cotton candy and toasted bread. Flavors of ripe orchard fruit and toasty spiced oak are accompanied by a creamy mid-palate. This wine is medium-bodied with a memorable crispness.
