Rabbit Ridge “Barrel Cuvee” Chardonnay, Central Coast California (suggested retail $11.99)  Erich Russell is the owner and winemaker at Rabbit Ridge Winery in Paso Robles, Calif. His philosophy is that wine should be affordable. Witness this very drinkable chardonnay. It has ripe pear and apple aromas and flavors, with a touch of vanilla and toast. Zesty acidity keeps the palate begging for more. Enjoy it with grilled chicken accompanied by a mango salsa.

Gazela Vinho Verde Rosé, Portugal  (suggested retail $8.99)  Gazela is a soft, light and refreshing Vinho Verde that goes well with life. Gazela is an uncompromising wine, a renewed classic that confirms all the region's potential to create light and engaging wines, ideal for everyday drinking.  Gazela Vinho Verde Rosé should be served well chilled, in a white wine glass or a flute and is ideal as an aperitif, with salads, fish, seafood dishes and Asiatic cuisine or sushi.

Casa Maria Tinto, Tierra de Castilla Y Leon Spain (suggested retail $9.99)  Vinted from the Tempranillo grape variety with an average age of 15 years old, located in the area of Valladolid, close to the Duero River.  Ruby red in color, youthful and brilliant red fruit and cream aromas with notes of licorice.  On the palate, this wine is powerful and fresh, with hints of berries coming through.  Try this wine with aged cheeses, or just about anything off the grill.

Waka Waka Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon, South Africa (suggested retail $13.99)  WAKA WAKA is a captivating and enchanting wine which reflects the radiance and allure of South Africa. The expert winemakers from WAKA WAKA in Paarl have unharnessed the vines to allow them to explore the land freely, as Mother Nature originally intended in their original bush form, thus producing low-yielding grapes with a high concentration of flavor and aroma. Theses grapes are then hand- picked during the harvest to ensure that only the best quality fruit is used. Their website recommends trying this wine with an ostrich steak, but one from beef will also be suitable.

Cristobal “1492” Malbec, Mendoza Argentina  (suggested retail $10.99)   This wine has intense and bright red purplish tones. It exhibits a fine and elegant aroma with a perfect combination of ripe red fruits and spices, enriched by the French oak. In the mouth it is balanced with soft tannins. This 100% Malbec is harvest by hand in March.  20% of the wine was stored for 9 months in oak barrels combining the noble qualities of oak with the intense fruity aromas. Another wine that is great to enjoy by itself, or with a barbequed meat that has a tangy sauce.

Tenuta di Morzano “il Quarto” Chianti Riserva, Montespertoli Italy (suggested retail $19.99)  A harmonious blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. These varietals have different origins (Tuscany, Bordeaux and Middle East) but combined together they confer to the wine elegance and character.  The wine has a deep ruby red color and the nose is characterized by a persistent hints of flowers, spices and fruit. Important structure, elegant and velvety, in mouth is soft and round. The best grapes are intended for the Riserva since the harvest and their properties enrich with the passage in barriques. Il Quarto just received 88 points in the June 2014 Wine Spectator magazine.
