1.  2017 Domaine de la Damase Grenache | Rhone Valley, France | $13.99
This Grenache is intended to be a simple straight forward, fruit forward, earth forward Southern Rhone Valley Grenache.
A combination of old and young vine Grenache from Cote du Rhone and Vin de Pays vineyards fermented and aged in concrete tanks.

2.  2016 Hermann Wiemer Grüner Veltliner | Finger Lakes, New York | $17.99 | 90pts Wine Enthusiast
Long, mild autumns in the protection of our Josef Vineyard allow for this late-ripening varietal to attain full flavor. Shale-dominated soil on a gently descending slope contributes pronounced minerality and a delicate orchard fruit aroma that broadens on the palate.
Underlying citrus acidity hints at the versatility of this wine when pairing.

3.  2017 Carpineto Dogajolo Bianco | Tuscany, Italy | $13.99
Straw yellow with green highlights. Pleasantly fruity, elegantly aromatic and harmonious bouquet. A medium-bodied white with pleasant citrus aromas and flavors, Carpineto Dogajolo Bianco is a young, fresh wine with a balanced acidity and clean, delicate finish. Produced from estate-grown fruit from the Montepulciano estate, each varietal is vinified separately in stainless steel tanks.  Excellent as an aperitif or with typical Mediterranean cuisine, such as salads, pasta, seafood and white meats. Excellent also with flavorful, spicy Asian foods.
Blend: 40% Chardonnay, 30% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Grechetto

4. 2015 The Long Little Dog Red Blend | France | $11.99
Fruity, warming and slightly aromatic on the nose (your nose, not the dog’s!). Long Little Dog red is plump with a luscious texture and subtle twist of spice on the finish. It is a fruit-driven style brimming with blackberry flavours, yet underpinned with a backbone that hints at something more serious.  Long Little Dog red is perfect with a platter of antipasto or tomato & meat based pasta dishes.
