DeLoach Vineyards Russian River Chardonnay, California (suggested retail $21.99)  Beautiful lemon yellow in color, the nose of this Chardonnay immediately entices you with its citrus notes of lime and mandarin, along with green cardamom, nutmeg and baked apple. Upon first sip you will enjoy flavors of apple with a slight creaminess. The balanced acidity gives you a creamy, soft mouthfeel that builds with intensity and ends with a long, lingering finish.

Loggia dei Franchi Primitivo, Puglia Italy (suggested retail $11.99)  Primitivo is a dark-skinned grape, better known in United States as Zinfandel.  Research in the 1990s determined with DNA fingerprinting, that the two grape varietals are genetically the same. There are loads of sweet, succulent fruit in this firm red and it has a velvety-textured, seamless finish. This wine, produced in the southern part of Puglia, is ideal with red meats and game.

Le Petit Grand Rouge, Bordeaux France  (suggested retail $12.99)  With the new Le Petit Grand range, Yvon Mau's goal is to make the legendary wines of Bordeaux accessible to everyone. This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc captures the essence of the region's great estates, in a format which is approachable and enjoyable even for wine-lovers who know nothing about Bordeaux.  It is dense, brilliant ruby-purple in color. Expressive and fruity on the nose. Ripe, well-rounded fruit and a smooth, indulgent texture, with prominent blackberry and blackcurrant notes. Ready to be enjoyed now, served at room temperature as an aperitif, with roast beef or chicken or with a good soft cheese.

Valtier Reserva Red Blend, Utiel Requena Spain (suggested retail $13.99)  With 18 months ageing in barrel followed by over five years in bottle, this velvety Reserva has a touch of spice blended with rich, ripe fruit flavors. It's a 50/50 blend of Tempranillo and Bobal. The family owned winery is located in Utiel-Requena which lies on a plateau west of Valencia in the heart of Spain.

Jed Steele’s “Shooting Star” Merlot, Lake County California (suggested retail $13.99)  Jed Steele began his career as a cellar worker at Stony Hill in Napa Valley in 1968, on to UC Davis for a Master’s Degree in Enology, then to Edmeades in the Anderson Valley for ten years and then on to Kendall-Jackson before starting his own winery in 1991.   Merlot has always been a strong performer in Lake County. The wines are better structured and denser than a typical Merlot. An addition of Cabernet Franc helps balance the wine and give it more fruit. We aged this wine in American Oak barrels for 12 months.

Wente Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon, Livermore Valley California (suggested retail $17.99)   In the 19th century, California wine pioneer Charles Wetmore imported Cabernet Sauvignon cuttings from Bordeaux to plant in his Livermore Valley vineyards. The descendants of these vines were selected by University of California at Davis to become a part of their Foundation Nursery. Today, the Wente family farms approximately 400 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards using these clones. This wine was aged for 14 months in a combination of American, French, Eastern European, neutral oak barrels and stainless steel tanks.
