Italian Barbera – January 2016
Piedmont, Italy: One of Italy’s most famous wine regions. Situated at the base of the Alps, Piemonte in Italian means “at the foot of the mountains”. Continental climate with hot growing season.
The Wine: Higher acidity, lower tannins. Approachable and food-friendly. Earthy nose with aromas of sour cherry, and flavors of cherry, cranberry and spice ( nutmeg and anise).
Italian Pinot Grigio Verduzzo – January 2016
Veneto, Italy: Located just north of Venice on the Adriatic Sea, one of three highly productive regions known collectively as the Venezie. Hot summers and cool winters.

California Mosaic Red – February 2016
Paso Robles, CA: Located between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Long growing season of warm days and cool nights. Produces vibrantly ripened grapes.
The Wine: Merlot and Zinfandel bring round fruit notes, while Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon provide structure and complexity. Aromas of red fruit, smoke and spice. Flavors of blackberry, raspberry and spice.
Gewurztraminer Verdelho Muscat – March 2016
Murray Darling, Australia: Named for the two great rivers, Murray and Darling, which weave through the region. Long hot days with little rainfall. Heat, irrigation and fertile soil produce grapes that create soft, generously flavored wines.
The Wine: Floral notes from Gewürztraminer, with tropical character from Verdelho, and vibrant fruit (grape!) from Muscat. Perfumed nose, bright flavors of pear, grapefruit and lime. Hint of minerality.
