Domaine du Vieux Chene Cuvee d’ Or Vdp Rhone France (suggested retail $12.99) Beatrice and Jean Claude Bouche have vineyards that are spread out on a slightly sloped and very rocky plateau in the Rhone Valley. This organically produced wine which is 50% Roussanne and 50 % Chardonnay is mostly fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks (90%) but also in oak barrels (10%).  The wine is light yellow straw color with green glints and its vanilla overtones make it elegant, yet complex. Try this wine by itself, or with a shellfish with cream sauce.

Moobuzz Chardonnay, Monterey California (suggested retail $16.99)  The excellent soil of Monterey is key in producing world class Chardonnay. The label says Chardonnay, but it has just a touch of Viognier, resulting in aromas of poached pears, lemongrass, and sandalwood. Flavors of lemon meringue pie, guava, gala apple, and candied pineapple sing on your palate. The finish shows integrated French oak, light caramel, toasted marshmallow and lemon drop notes. Try this wine with lemon pepper grilled chicken breast on a bed of buttered noodles and sautéed broccoli rabe.

Chateau des Erles Cuvee des Abrigans, Languedoc France (suggested retail $13.99)  The chateau and vineyards are located on the rolling hillsides of the Haut Fitou in Languedoc. This wine is made from a blend of 20% Syrah, 35% Grenache, and 45% Carignan. The Syrah contributes color, roundness, and spices while the Grenache and the Carignan contribute body, fruit, color  and tannin. The hand-picked grapes are manually sorted and then de-stemmed. After maceraton, fermentation takes place in concrete vats.  This wine is perfectly suited for Roast pork with prunes, lamb chops, or barbecued meats.

San Felice Contrada Toscana, Tuscany Italy (suggested retail $11.99)  San Felice Contrada di San Felice Toscana Rosso is a delicious blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The estate consists of 445 acres situated amongst gently rolling hills in the area of Chianti Classico. This is a gorgeous, modern take on a Tuscan wine with a ruby red color, aromas of ripe cherries and violets, balanced by plush tannins and balanced acidity. It is a good structured, unbeatable Tuscan food wine easy to pair with all kinds of dishes including a good stone-baked pizza.

Lange Twins Estate Grown Malbec, Lodi California (suggested retail $15.99)  This "certified sustainable" grown Malbec offers soft violet and red berry on the nose, while bright cherry and dark raspberry intensify with every sip. With fully resolved tannins and notes of white pepper, this wine is a perfect balance between the vivid fruit, spice and structure that comes from 100% barrel aging for 18 months in French and American Oak. Pair this wine with Manchego cheese, grilled red meats, or Tuna Bolognese.

Michel-Schlumberger “Le Sage” Merlot, Dry Creek Valley California (suggested retail $34.99)   The two partners in this estate winery came from Switzerland and France looking for ideal growing conditions to start a winery in California and found them in the Dry Creek Valley. This Classic Bordeaux style cuvee is made from a blend of 85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Petit Verdot from the finest blocks of their benchland vineyards.  It shows rich aromas of black cherry and plum, with lush, concentrated flavors of black cherry, plum, and chocolate.  After fermenting, the wine is aged for 24 months in French oak barrels (25% new).  Try this wine with lamb chops, a standing rib roast or even a juicy burger off of the grill.
