2015 Cépage Cabernet Sauvignon - Vin de Pays, France (x1)

2015 Domaine du Grand Mouton Muscadet Sevre et Maine (x2)
This refreshing and dry Loire Valley white opens with notes of beeswax, orange blossom, seashell, and honeyed pear. The aromas follow through to the palate where they are joined by a nice, chalky minerality, notes of lemon, and a long finish. This mouthwatering white is the perfect pairing for oysters and shellfish, and pleases Sauvignon Blanc lovers looking for something a little fuller.

2013 James and Bell Zinfandel - California (x1)

2016 Dr. Wilhelm Riesling - Rheinhessen, Germany (x1)
Orange blossoms and summer peaches perfume this delectably fruity, concentrated German white wine. 2015 Dr. Wilhelm Riesling is slightly off-dry, with a plump, honeyed feel that is lightened by a streak of tangerine acidity that persists to the finish. Drink it now.
2015 Snickerdoodle Chardonnay - California (x2)
Crisp, refreshing Chardonnay is the first thing that comes to mind when most people think of white wine. Snickerdoodle makes a fresh Chardonnay, with flavors of green apple, nectarine and juicy melon. A subtle hint of oak adds complexity without cutting into the wine’s crispness, resulting in a delicious gem of a California Chardonnay.

2016 La Petite Tour Classic White - Callifornia (x2)
La Petite Tour winery has been a highlight of California’s wine scene since the 1980s. Over the years, this white blend has remained a family favorite, and was originally only made in small lots for their own table. La Petite Tour Classic White is a delicately aromatic, medium-bodied wine with flavors of ripe pear and surprisingly bright citrus notes. It’s a versatile food wine, that pairs well with fish, grilled chicken or vegetables, and we’ve found that it’s the bottle that thrills white wine fans…and converts red wine drinkers.
