Lakewood Riesling 2017
Retail: $14.95 | Sale: $13.45
Located on beautiful Seneca Lake in the heart of Finger Lakes Wine Country, this savory Riesling has a lingering, slightly earth-toned and crisp finish that will cover a lot of bases. A beautiful emerald straw color in the glass, this Finger Lake Riesling opens with aromas of pear, citrus, and a hint of peach. The fruity notes carry onto the palate, where they are balanced with a touch of sweetness and moderate acidity. Bright and refreshing, this award-winning Riesling is a perfect complement to grilled seafood or barbecued chicken.
Cleto Chiarli Vecchia Modena Lambrusco di Sorbara NV
Retail: $18.95 | Sale: $17.05
This dry Lambrusco is super refreshing, with notes of citrus, red cherry, and strawberry fruit. The finish is tart and bright, like perfectly balanced lemonade, washing the palate with each and every sip. In fact, the most difficult thing about this wine may be opening it, since instead of a traditional cage there is a metal clamp over the cork (just insert the knife of your wine key between the clamp and the cork and twist away from you in order to pry it off). A classic pizza pairing!

This wine has rockin' Provencal character in its garrigue – black cherry, black raspberry, and peppery spice aromas and flavors. These give way to a medium-bodied, elegant, balanced Lirac that has fine tannins, good freshness and elegance, and a beautiful finish.
