Casa Santos LAB Vinho Regional Lisboa Dry White, Portugal (suggested retail $9.99)  A lovely blend of Portuguese grapes, this Vital, Arinto, Moscatel, and Sauvignon Blanc blend offers a flowery perfume and a full body with flavors of peach, jasmin, honeysuckle and orange zest. Wine Spectator “Wine Pick Of The Day” November 20th 2014: “This has plenty of acidity to lift the ripe apple, pear and melon flavors. Juicy mid-palate, with fresh green herb and scallion notes that support the minerally finish.”  This wine will go great with shellfish.

Field Stone “Hopkins River Ranch” Chardonnay, Russian River Valley California  (suggested retail $24.99)  Our prized, limited production Chardonnay comes from an outstanding Sonoma vineyard in our favorite cool growing region for this variety. The combination of two distinctive Chardonnay clones (the Rued, known for its enticing, spicy, fruit character, and the Sees, known for its ripe, green apple and peach expression), and the ideal terroir of Bob Hopkins' River Ranch location, contribute to the distinctiveness of this wine.  Try this wine with Glazed Ham or Roasted Chicken.

IA Old Vines Garnacha, Carnena, Spain (suggested retail $10.99)  75 hectares of 50+ year old vines have low production yields and are harvested by hand, producing our more complex, higher quality wines.  Wine Enthusiast Best Buy 86 Points:” Nice violet and minerally aromas mix with sweet berry scents, and right then you know you have a competent, correct Garnacha on your hands. It’s a bit acidic and bouncy, but the flavors of berry and plum are firm, tasty and fade well on the finish.”  This versatile red is one of those great pasta, pizza, burger wines.

Carmim “Reguengos” Alentejo Red Blend, Portugal (suggested retail $10.99)  Refuengos is produced by one of the top cooperatives in Portugal and is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, and a bunch of grapes you may not have heard of; Tinta Caiada, Moreto, Alicante Bouschet, Castelão, Trincadeira, Aragonês Wine Enthusiast Best Buy 90 Points: “The cooperative of Reguengos is now a major force in the region. This wine, named after the hilltop town of Reguengos, is a powerful, condensed wine. It has dark black fruits, solid tannins and a smooth texture. Full-bodied and worth aging. Drink from 2015.  Try this wine with red meats, hearty stews, dry sausages and cheeses.

Esser Monterey Pinot Noir, California (suggested retail $14.99)   The Esser Vineyards Monterey Pinot Noir comes from the relatively cold climate of the Monterey Peninsula, where the pinot ripens in a similar way to the cool climates of Burgundy. This is a classic style of pinot, that doesn't get overripe like so many other pinot noirs do in California. This is an elegant wine that can handle both light and dark meat turkey, as well as all the traditional accouterments.

Bogle “Essential Red” Old Vine Blend California (suggested retail $12.99)  This blend of old vine Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Sirah was #3 on this years Wine Enthusiast Best 100 Values and a score of 91 points: “sophisticated, structured and balanced as many high-end Cabernets. It has a deep, exotic aroma of dark fruit plus cedar and cardamom. The flavor is richly fruity, the mouthfeel is firmly textured and the finish lingers nicely. It’s medium bodied and full-flavored.”  This will stand up to baby back ribs or any other pork barbeque.
