Marques de Caceres Rueda Verdejo (suggested retail $10.99) This Wine Enthusiast Magazine “Best Buy” comes from Rueda in the north of Spain. The grapes are harvested at night and quickly chilled before utilizing a gentle pressing process. Fermentation takes place on the finest lees at controlled temperatures in the upper 50s. Afterwards, the wine is kept on its finest lees until just before stabilization and bottling.  The resulting wine has an intense bouquet with mineral notes, herbs, citrus fruit.  It is deliciously balanced due to its vibrant splash of green apple.

Marlo Chardonnay, California (suggested retail $11.99)  Grapes for this wine were selected from California's best cool climate growing areas, from the North Coast down to the San Juaquin Valley and were also harvested during cooler night and morning hours to maintain the crisp citrus flavors.  Partially oak aged and sent through malolactic fermentation to add silkiness and body to the wine.  The resulting wine exhibits ripe pineapple, golden apple, and Anjou pear flavors the make it a heavenly match for a smoked chicken salad with apples and walnuts, a four cheese pizza, or a light pasta dish.

Lyeth Merlot, North Coast, California (suggested retail $13.99)  This Wine Enthusiast Magazine gave this wine 87 points: “Generous flavors of red and black cherry, and a nice, firm coating of fine tannins make this full-bodied wine good and substantive. Those dark fruit flavors are fairly deep and concentrated, and linger on the finish.”  This rich, balanced Merlot will pair nicely with a wide range of foods, including roast chicken and pork, or pasta with red sauce.

Las Perdices Malbec, Mendoza Argentina (suggested retail $13.99)  This “jammy” full bodied red gets its richness from its pre-fermentative cold maceration for 5 days at 42-46ºF, followed by a temperature controlled fermentation for 10 days at 75-79ºF  with daily cap punch downs with pump-overs.  After fermentation the wine continues maceration for an additional 12 days.  The wine is then aged for 8 months in French and American oak barrels. This is why the wine in your glass has an intense purple red color. On the palate you will experience complex berry aromas with delicate oak touches. It is soft and balanced, with plum and cherry notes. Ideal to serve with red meat, pasta, fish and white meat with spiced sauces.

Tenuta di Morzano “Emilio” Chianti Superiore, Tuscany, Italy  (suggested retail $22.99) This Chianti is 100% Sangiovese, the most widely planted grape in the region, where wines with a strong personality whose aromas and flavors are typically Tuscan.  This wine is an elegant ruby red in color. The nose is intriguing: aromas of red fruits are typical of the terroir of Montespertoli.  On the palate there is an expression of harmony and intensity, where the brisk tannins are softened by the 12 months spent in French oak barrels.  This balanced and well proportioned wine is an excellent example of the best that the Chianti region can offer and will shine with just about any Italian red meat or red sauce dish.
