2016 Chateau de la Ragotiere Muscadet Sevre Et Maine Sur Lie
France-Loire (Pays Nantais)

Winemaker Notes: The old vines here give some concentration. More importantly, they give a great swath of ripe fruit that is so crisp and refreshing. Lemon and the lightest texture are lifted by intense acidity and a lively, fresh aftertaste. Pair with seafood, scallops, lobster, grilled fish, Asian food, or goat cheese.

92 Points Wine Enthusiast: Old vines, up to 60 years old, are the basis of this concentrated, ripe and intense wine. It is impressive and tightly wound, with layers of rich citrus fruit and a chalky texture. This is still a little young, so drink from 2018. Editors’ Choice. #72 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2017

Retail: $14.99
On Sale Thru 10/24: $12.99

2015 Torbreck Cuvee Juveniles GSM
Australia-Barossa Valley

Winemaker Notes: Bold and seductive, this youthful, unoaked blend encapsulates all that is great in a pure, unseasoned wine. A lively, vibrant aroma of blackberry, violet and spice. A full, rich mid palate with a vivacity and energy that this blend always generates. Ripe, savory flavors of dark berry fruit and cassis, spiced cherries, minerals and succulent blueberry fruit all balanced with fresh acidity and a fine gentle tannin structure. Dense and vibrant, this wine is drinking superbly but as with its predecessors will greatly recompense those who choose to give it a few years in the cellar.

91 Points James Suckling: A fresh and clean red with sliced apple, strawberry and green tobacco. Medium body, crisp fruit. Hints of cedar and tea. Lovely length and deliciousness.

Retail: $24.99
On Sale Thru 10/24: $20.99
