Gil Family Shaya Verdejo, Rueda Spain (suggested retail $12.99)  This wine from Gil Family Estates is 100% Verdejo, coming out of the Rueda region in Spain.  “It displays a nose of toasty baking spices, nutmeg, spring flowers, marzipan, and pit fruits. A bit richer and more complex on the palate than the regular cuvee, this vibrant effort could evolve for 1-2 years but is drinking well now." Wine critic James Suckling had this to say:"Aromas of candied pears and lemons. Medium body, bright and tangy acidity. Mineral, citrus aftertaste. Steely and fun.”  Try this wine with spicy Thai or Indian cuisine.

Tresor de la Riviere Cotes du Rhone Blanc (suggested retail $13.99)  A delicious summer quencher, Tresor de la Riviere Blanc is clear and bright in appearance with light gold color along with tinges of green. There are intense aromas of peach, apricots, and dried fruits. It is a cool and refreshing wine that is supple and crisp on the palate. It is served best as an aperitif or paired with fish or dry cheeses.

Bodegas Eguren “Renares” Tempranillo (suggested retail $8.99) Light ruby color with fresh fruit forward aromas of black cherry. Your first sip starts out soft with a dry and tart mid-palate, spicy, round tannins, and a firm finish.  This versatile wine goes with a variety of dishes; burgers, pizza, sausage, and has the backbone to stand up to a slow roasted tri-tip.

Poderi del Nonnonanni Chianti, Italy (suggested retail $12.99)      Tenura di Morzano is an estate founded in 1988 and is located in the municipality of Montespertoli, more precisely on the hill of Morzano from which it takes its name. This wine is a brilliant ruby red, with a nose that is characterized by typical hints of violets and red fruit.  Fresh and vibrant, with notes of ripe cherries and violets on the nose. The palate brings red plum and dried herb flavors.  The acidity inherent in the Sangiovese grape makes it perfect for tomato sauce based dishes.

Insurrection Red Blend, South Eastern Australia (suggested retail $17.99)  This blend, consisting of 75% Shiraz and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, were left on the vine as long as possible, maximizing fruit flavors for a wine that is intensely rich and ripe. Night harvesting maintained freshness, rotary fermentation enhanced power and medium oak treatment added toast and spice. Big bold flavors envelop the palate with red fruit, plum and chocolate. Shiraz offers berries and spice, while Cabernet Sauvignon delivers power and structure. Relentless waves of strong, rich flavor resolve into a long, smooth finish.

Las Perdices Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendoza Argentina (suggested retail $13.99)    The wine is of an intense ruby color, and has cherry aromas with subtle pepper and soft vanilla oak notes. Soft on the palate, it is well-balanced with sour cherry and cassis flavors. The restrained alcohol level lends this well-integrated wine a touch of elegance more reminiscent of a high-priced wine. Stephen Tanzer rated this wine 87 points, saying that “ it has ruby-red color, with a lovely lift to the aromas of black cherry and pepper. Tactile and moderately sweet, with an impression of extract to the chewy flavors of syrupy dark currant, mocha and pepper.”
