 NV Adami Garbèl Prosecco, Treviso, Italy

Price: $15.99/bottle or $191.88/case

Sale: $14.39/bottle or $172.69/case

Garbèl in the ancient local dialect means “crisp and dry”. This wine has a fine, delicate bead, youthful, fruity aromas, and a palate that is smooth, rounded, and dry. It is an extremely versatile sparkling wine, to be enjoyed at any time of day.

 

2011 Domaine Skouras Moscofilero, Greece

Price: $13.99/bottle or $167.88/case

Sale: $12.59/bottle or $151.09/case

The color is light white yellow.  Opulent aromas of white flowers, light and fresh honeysuckle are revealed, rounded out with notes of rose petal and passion fruit.  Bright, joyful acidity that is positively refreshing leads on to a surprisingly long finish of orange rind and a whisper of white pepper.

 

2010 Chateau Cluzan Bordeaux Blend, Bordeaux, France

Price: $13.49/bottle or $161.88/case

Sale: $12.14/bottle or $145.69/case

Impeccably kept, medium-sized family property. The vineyard and the cellar are managed with rigour and passion by Durand Saint Omer, who produces a deeply coloured, intensely fruity wine, with pure varietal aromas and excellent structure. Château Cluzan is bottled early with no oak ageing to preserve the maximum amount of freshness.

 

Susana Balbo Signature Blend Malbec

Price: $24.99/bottle or $299.88/case

Sale: $22.49/bottle or $269.88/case

This superb wine is a complex blend of 90% malbec with 10% cabernet sauvignon from an excellent-quality, cool harvest. It has a beautiful floral nose and a caressing velvety palate, so smooth and round. Aged 13 months in 80% new French barrels and 20% second use.

 

Saracco Moscato d’Asti, Italy

Price: $15.99/bottle or $191.88/case

Sale: $14.39/bottle or $172.69/case

Lightly sparkling aromatic wine. Aromas of peach, apricot, lemon peel and white flowers. Complex, good body with balance between sweetness and acidity, nice persistency. A natural match with moscato is dessert. Surprisingly whether it is Indian or Asian, Thai or other ethnic spicy dish, Saracco Moscato with its low alcohol content, reduces the effects of oils which make spicy foods hot.
