1.  2014 Fattoria de Magliano Heba Morellino – Tuscany, Italy | $22.99
In 2000, a shoe designer turned vineyard owner hired Graziana Grassino as consultant winemaker (in 2010 she also started working with Sassicaia). This Sangiovese with a dash of Syrah has pure red cherry, violet and mint aromas.
It’s fresh, crunchy and juicy with a nice tannic structure. 89pts – Wine Enthusiast | 90pts – Decanter

2.  2017 Folk Machine Pinot Noir – Central Coast, CA | $19.99
What to expect is a fun Pinot that is elegant, pretty, and drinkable. Though a bit light in color due to no attempt to
extract or over-manipulate, the wine does not lack flavor or body, but rather shows the silky, more-subtle side of the variety.
Drink often, pair with anything (seriously). 89pts – Decanter

3.  2015 Verum Chardonnay – Alto Valle de Rio Negro, Patagonia, Argentina | $14.99
Oily citrus aromas are round and briny. This feels front-loaded, meaning there isn’t much depth to the palate.
Short, lightly stalky apple and citrus flavors turn pithy on the finish. 86pts – Wine Enthusiast

4. 2015 Lyric by Etude Pinot Noir – Central Coast, CA | $22.99
Rich in ripe cherry, red raspberry and fresh strawberry, this youthful Pinot Noir drinks complex with hints of cinnamon,
cardamom, sandalwood and cola. Offering an elegant structure, silky tannins and bright acidity,
this Pinot Noir is captivating in its youth and makes a wonderful counterpart to a variety of dishes. 88pts – Wine Enthusiast
