Tanzanite Brut Rose Method Cap Classique
Origin: South Africa
Retail: $34.95 | Sale $31.45
This South African méthode cap classique is made the same way as Champagne. It begins with a luminous pink appearance, leading into aromas of raspberries, cherries, and notes of minerality. The structure is suave yet robust, making it a perfect match with roasted poultry, game, tapas, ham and smoked salmon.

Lyrarakis Assyrtiko Voila 2017
Retail: $19.95 | Sale $17.95
From a small family winery who discovered the potential of east Crete in the 1970s, this single vineyard Assyritiko will not disappoint. Crisp apple, stone fruits, and hints of ginger welcome you into the glass. The palate provides layers of textures with a rich mouthfeel that is supported by minerality and a natural acidity that leads into a long, fruity, and uplifting finish.
Alain Jaume Tavel Le Crétacé 2016
Retail: $19.95 | Sale: $17.95
This Grenache-dominated beauty offers notes of black cherries, wild strawberries, and hints of minerals. On the palate, it is zingy with great lift, but maintains the elegant style we look for from Tavel. Red currant and cherry flavors cover the palate with hints of aniseed. The perfect level of acidity makes this a great, food-friendly rosé.

Trione Flatridge Ranch Zinfandel 2014
Retail: $39.95 | Sale: $35.95
Flatridge Ranch is a secluded parcel in the Coastal mountain range, west of the Rockpile AVA. Here the Trione family planted a 10 acre vineyard of unique Zinfandel vines called Saint Peter’s Church. Aromas of briarwood and pipe tobacco give way to blackberry pie, toasted macaroons, and plums. The palate is velvety, supple and rich with a long, satisfying finish. This Zinfandel, a Sonoma County classic, will continue to age for many years to come.
