TOP SHELF SELECTION:

Molly Dooker 2013 The Boxer Shiraz - Australia. "Broad, spicy and dense at the core, with plum and blackberry fruit playing against toasty, spicy overtones and polished tannins as the finish persists.” 91 pts., Wine Spectator

WHITE WINE SELECTION:

Chateau St. Jean 2012 Pinot Gris - Sonoma. Bright and crisp this wine is highlighted with aromas of fresh lemon citrus and ripe melon. The inviting aromas lead to a crisp and refreshing palate with flavors of citrus, kiwi fruit and notes of orange blossom.

Markham 2013 Sauvignon Blanc – Napa Valley.  Rich caramel and candied ginger aroma over the usual honeysuckle, lemon-lime and mineral gunflint notes. Ripe peach, nectarine and apricot flavors give seemingly lush texture, while guava and citrus provide a refreshing acidity as the wine finishes on the palate.

Nugan Estates Third Generation 2013 Chardonnay – Australia. Pale straw in color with a soft youthful green hue. Aromas of  white peach and nectarine compote with lashings of roasted nuts and allspice. On the palate, bright citrus and peach fruit with undertones of roasted cashew.

RED WINE SELECTION:

Black Ink 2013 Red Blend – Napa Valley.  Juicy blackberry cobbler meets smoky licorice with a hint of spice. The capsule is marked with the allusive squid in a nod to the deep dark red hues within the bottle. Merlot, Syrah, Malbec and Zinfandel.

Renwood BBQ 2011 Zinfandel – CA. The entry of the wine shows a rich body with the spices in the nose carrying though into the flavor with hints of smoke. These flavors are further enhanced with elements of raspberry and cherry.

Smith & Hook 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon – Central Coast, CA.   "Open-textured and appealing, revealing an almost weightless feel around the core of toasty, tobacco-accented pear and floral flavors, lingering easily on the finish." 89 pts., Wine Spectator
