2010 Caves Naveran ‘Dama’ Cava, Catalunya, Spain
Price: $29.99/bottle or $359.88/case
Sale: $26.99/bottle or $323.99/case
Naveran Dama is a Cava masterpiece, a combination of Chardonnay, which gives the wine body and volume, and Parellada, which imparts a zesty, bright character that cuts through the buttery roundness of the Chardonnay. Champagne lovers will enjoy this Mediterranean “farmer’s fizz” with oysters, raw tuna and sushi. Its fresh acidity also compliments fruit desserts, especially peaches and sliced oranges. This is one of the few vintage Cavas made in Spain.
NV Duval-Leroy Brut, Champagne, France
Price: $34.99/bottle or $419.88/case
Sale: $31.49/bottle or $377.89/case
The winemaking process, partially using vats and oak barrels, preserves the grapes’ initial characteristics and at the same time develops high levels of concentration and a strong identity, while at the same time giving rise to a refined wine whose bouquet releases a pure, crystalline expression. This unctuous wine has a green-gold colour, illuminated by slow, fine bubbles which leave a remarkable sensation in the mouth
2012 Sean Minor ‘Four Bears’ Pinot Noir, Central Coast, CA, USA
Price: $14.99/bottle or $179.88/case
Sale: $13.49/bottle or $161.89/case
This Central Coast Pinot Noir displays aromas of cherry, strawberry, and raspberry fruit with a hint of earthy notes. On the palate, the Pinot offers bright flavors of strawberry and cherry combined with hints of tobacco. The bright acidity combined with sweet oak results in a lingering finish.
2012 Point North Pinot Noir, Oregon, USA
Price: $19.99/bottle or $239.88/case
Sale: $17.99/bottle or $215.89/case
Our Oregon Pinot Noir is medium-bodied with strawberry, cherry and raspberries aromas. It is well-structured and elegant, with lingering spicy/earthy notes and cherry flavors throughout the mid-pallet.

This elegant wine meets the eye with a medium ruby hue and offers up subtle hints of cherry and forest floor on the nose. On the palate one finds again a mix of Ranier and black cherries mountain strawberries, rosehip tea and plum. There are some savory notes following through the finish that give the wine a clean line from front to back.
