Coto de Hayas Chardonnay, Campo de Borja Spain (suggested retail $10.99)  This 100% varietal from Spain is fermented in stainless steel and sees no oak, making it much more crisp than its American wooded bretheren.  Refreshing and bright, with traces of white flower scents lingering over clean green apple and lemon flavors. Serve Chilled with light preparations of seafood, chicken and pork.  Wine Spectator gave this wine 85 points.

B. B. King’s Signature Selection Red, Almanasa, Spain  (suggested retail $13.99)  Blues legend B.B. King and Votto Vines Importing Inc. have released the B.B. King Signature Collection of wines, including a red blend sourced from the Bodega Santa Cruz Winery in Almansa, Spain. The B.B. King Signature Collection Red 2010 is a Crianza blend made from Garnacha, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals and would go great with a variety of hearty foods like chili, stews, burgers pizza or red sauce pasta.

Yellow + Blue Select Red, Santa Barbara California (suggested retail $11.99)  Don't let the "juice box" 1 Liter tetrapak fool you. Even though the package looks smaller, it holds 33% more wine than a typical wine bottle, shields the wine from sunlight better than any bottle can, and is much more environmentally friendly. This certified sustainable red from Santa Barbara County is a blend of Tempranillo, Syrah, and Mouvedre.  It is a wine that is dark purple-black in color,  with pleasant aromas of blackberry, leather and cardamom. This is a rich and powerful wine on the palate, with a long, spicy finish. Select Red pairs well with grilled meats and other hearty dishes.

J. Arthur Cellars 2 Jet Toro Opeq Merlot Lake County California (suggested retail $14.99)  This “Red Tailgate Wine” arrives just in time for the Thanksgiving tradition of watching the Lions play.  This is a project of Victor Green, former NY Jets safety.   The front label is a drawing of X’s and O’s from an actual play in the Detroit Lions play book.  The back label has a weird haiku of a poem that doesn’t make complete sense, but mentions Honolulu Blue, Silver, Thanksgiving, and “57”-- the last time the “Jungle Cat” was champion. Try this wine with your tailgate brats, nachos and finger foods.                       “Down the field and gain… A Lion victory!”

Valentin Bianci “Sensual” Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendoza Argentina (suggested retail $10.99)   Sensual Cabernet grapes come from vineyards situated in Rama Caida, San Rafael, Mendoza. Hand-picked and twice sorted by hand, the grapes are crushed, inoculated with selected yeasts and fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks, followed by minimal French oak aging in an effort to keep fruit fresh, lively and prominent. It is the perfect accompaniment to a wide range of foods, especially the steaks and beef that are typical of Argentine cuisine.

Gerard Bertrand Tautavel, Languedoc France (suggested retail $19.99)  Wine Enthusiast, November 2013, 91 Points: “This is an immediately attractive and approachable wine, with direct and intense aromas and flavors of black cherry, plum and boysenberry accented by notes of sweet smoke, mocha and pepper. Firm yet approachable, this is well-balanced with structured tannins and ample acidity.” Gerard Bertrand wines continue to be a Cork ‘n Cap favorite because the offer tremendous value for their price.  Try this wine with prime rib or seared lamb.
