Cline Chardonnay (California) Delightful notes of pineapple, citrus and vanilla. $12.99

Argiolas Costamolino (Sardegna Italy) Vermentino often shows the fragrance of macchia, the mix of evergreen shrubs and herbs that typifies the Sardinian landscape. Costamolino hints at aromas of pine and mint coupled with ripe stone fruit and sweet citrus. The palate is at once vibrant and textural and finishes with lingering acidity. Costamolino is produced with the Mediterranean table in mind. The wine’s lemony acidity will accent rock lobster or squid but carries enough weight to work with spaghetti topped with bottarga or a bowl of brothy clams and fregola. Vermentino’s herbal flavor can also highlight vegetables such as fava beans or fennel. $14.99

Chateau Roustaing Bordeaux ( France) Light and already fruity, this wine features attractive black-currant flavors, bright acidity and soft tannin’s. $15.99

Bila-Haut Cotes Du Roussillon (France) It is a blockbuster, full-bodied and loaded with flavor. The decomposed granite and schist soils coupled with 40-60 year old vines yield a truly expressive wine. The spices and herbs of Provence are infused in a juicy red with blackberry and plum fruits and firm tannins. $13.99
