Under Cost Wine: 
Sixto Roza Hills Chardonnay 2014 
Columbia Valley, Washington 
93 Points Wine Advocate 

The 2014 Chardonnay Roza Hills Vineyard is another beauty from this label that does everything right. From chalky soils and an elevation of 1,350 feet, it offers a rich, rounded, concentrated style to go with classic stone fruits, melon, honeysuckle and underbrush. 
Sale  $24.99/bottle 
Reg.  $54.99/bottle 

Montes Alpha Syrah 2016 
Colchagua Valley, Chile 
92 Points James Suckling

Sale  $11.99/bottle 
Reg.  $25.99/bottle 

Gerard Bertrand Saint Chinian 2011 
Languedoc, France 
The complex aromas of black olives and blackberry come from the carefully controlled extraction performed during vinification. Its full, fat body on the palate lends it a remarkable elegance. The long-lasting rich, fleshy bouquet reveals notes of roasted coffee, blackcurrant and prunes.

Reg.  $22.99/bottle

J.L. Chave Selection 'Offerus' Crozes Hermitage 2016 
Rhone, France 
92 Points Vinous 

Brilliant magenta. Expansive scents of fresh blackberry and boysenberry are complicated by suggestions of cracked pepper, olive and pungent flowers. Sappy, appealingly sweet dark berry preserve and cherry flavors show sharp delineation and spice and mineral qualities that build with air. Finishes with strong, energetic cut, well-knit tannins and lingering sweetness. 
Sale $34.99/bottle 
Reg.  $39.99/bottle 

Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel 2016 
Sonoma County, California 
93 Points Wine Spectator 

Plump and loaded with rich, jammy fruit, this Zinfandel is a pleasure to drink. Bold accents of wild berry, spicy cinnamon and licorice glide dynamically toward plush tannins.  
Sale $22.99/bottle 
Reg.  $26.99/bottle 

Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva 2012 

Tuscany, Italy 
90 Points Wine Advocate 

The 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori is Sangiovese that has been enhanced by small percentages of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.  This wine shows very nice ripeness with luscious, dark fruit flavors backed by spice and leather. 
Sale  $29.99/bottle 
Reg.  $39.99/bottle 

Grgich Hills Fume Blanc 2014 
Napa Valley, California 
91 Points Wine Enthusiast 

Dark golden-hay in color, this white was fermented mostly in 900-gallon French oak foudres, with the remainder fermented in smaller French oak barrels. Nutty lime and gooseberry provide intrigue and saltiness against bright acidity, making for a complex and compelling impression on the palate. 
Sale $24.99/bottle 
Reg. $29.99/bottle 

Vina Hermina Crianza 2015 
Rioja, Spain 
91 Points James Suckling 

This is a prototypical, modern Rioja red with a very attractive balance of blueberries, fine, toasty and bitter-chocolate notes (from oak) and rather fine-grained tannins. Good length. 
Sale  $12.99/bottle 
Reg.  $16.99/bottle 

Wine Cellar Selections!!!! 

Terre Rouge DTR Syrah 2012 
Sierra Foothills, California 
94 Points Wine Enthusiast  

This is a big, flavorful wine, luscious in aroma, flavor and texture from the first whiffs of spicy oak and funky earth through saturated blackberry and clove flavors. The texture is both velvety and almost stiff at the same time. Drink now through 2020. 
Sale  $44.99/bottle 
Reg.  $54.99/bottle 

Bollinger La Grand Annee Brut 2008 
Champagne, France 
97 Points Wine Advocate 

Bollinger's 2008 La Grande Année is superb, wafting from the glass with aromas of crisp orchard fruit, ripe lemons, honeycomb, warm biscuits, dried white flowers and a delicate top note of walnuts and fino sherry. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and vinous, with a beautifully refined mousse, superb concentration at the tightly wound core, incisive acids and a supremely elegant intermingling of Bollinger's oxidative stylistic signatures with fresh, vibrant fruit. The finish is long, precise and chalky. This is a Grande Année built for the cellar—the real excitement will come with a bit more bottle age—but this is already a thrilling Champagne in the making.  
$169.99/bottle  (6 bottles)
