Chateau Ste Michelle Merlot (Washington) The wine offers aromas of black cherry, leather and spice with layers of rich dark red fruit flavors and a long, smooth, sweet finish. A touch of Syrah adds a jammy fruit character. A great “everyday red.” $16.99

Round Pond Sauvignon Blanc (Napa) Bright and lusciously complex wine envelops the senses with an exquisite aromatic bouquet of açaí, guava, and papaya supported by ripe nectarines, coconut, white peach, and delicate white flowers. A lively array of ripe pear, melon and stone fruits glide across the palate with delightful citrus-driven acidity balanced by soft, savory minerality. Vivacious tropical notes linger beautifully on the long, enduring, and playful finish. $19.99

Freakshow Red Blend (California) is a blend like no other! The 2016 vintage is laden with aromas of dark ripe fruits, espresso and spice. A full-bodied beast unveiling flavors of blueberry cobbler, caramel, black pepper and pipe tobacco carry through the velvety, supple tannins and lingering finish. $21.99

Villa Marchesi Pinot Grigio (Friuli Italy) One of the best growing regions in Italy for this very popular varietal. It has subtle notes of ripe peach and pear, crisp minerality and a long, clean finish. Enjoy this light crisp and dry refresher by itself or with fish, shellfish, salads or poultry. $9.99
