Pavillon La Tourelle Bordeaux
The 2013 vintage of Pavillon La Tourelle Bordeaux won multiple awards, including a 96-point Platinum Medal. Excitement is running high for the highly reviewed 2014 vintage, which seamlessly blends 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. This auspicious red is sure to get judges excited. It’s vivid in the glass and smooth on the palate, with clean black cherry and currant flavors, and an easy finish.
Tremo Carbonic Maceration Tempranillo
Carbonic Maceration is a cutting edge winemaking method where a carbon dioxide rich environment is used to ferment juice inside the grape. This results in very fruity wines with very little mouth-drying tannins. While most popular in France, Bodega Luis Alegre is using Carbonic Maceration in Spain on masterfully grown Tempranillo and Viura grapes for a juicy wine with an aromatic nose of raspberry, cherry and slight violet notes. Soft acidity provides just enough balance for fresh fruit notes that meet licorice on the finish.

Villa Amoroso Chianti
These days, Chianti means way more than basket-woven bottles of table wine. Villa Amoroso sets itself apart with a joyful blend of 85% Sangiovese and 15% regional varietals, creating a foodie-thrilling balance of tart red fruit and spicy herb flavors. The notes of smoke, clay, peppers, and tomato perfectly compliment tomato-based Italian dishes and dried meats. Don’t believe us? Pick up a bottle and see for yourself why Chianti is the most consumed, talked, and written-about Italian wine.

Bear Hug Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon
We are particularly excited about this exclusive, barrel select Cabernet Sauvignon from California. First pass with your nose brings enticing aromas of ripe cherries, flowers, and cotton candy. After opening, this wine is even tastier if you let it sit for 30 minutes, giving the delicious flavors the chance to stretch out. No matter how long you wait, the first sip will have you savoring bright cherries, cassis, and ripe blackberries with a full and pleasing mouth feel and smooth, easy-going finish.

Vista De Noche Malbec
Vista de Noche Malbec is a profound red, with dark fruits like blackberry mingling with herbaceous notes and a nice, smoky overlay. This full-bodied wine is destined to be best friends with many grilled meats. It’s got a lot of personality, and a finish that can please the wine drinker in all of us.

Longitude has flavors of plums and strawberries, with an easygoing finish and very smooth tannins. Think of it as the black cotton sweater of wines—you’ll want it on hand for almost any occasion.
