Each case contains 1 bottle of each:
Rivera Pungirosa / Puglia, Italy
Purple-flecked onion skin color; delicate bouquet with notes of wild rose and cherry; crisp yet smooth palate, well balanced, with a subtle vein of acidity; lengthy, juicy finish.
Joseph Mellot 'Sincerite' Sauvignon Blanc / Sancerre France
The grapes for this wine are sourced from the main four appellations, including Sancerre and Pouilly Fume, which are known for their racy, mineral-driven style. The nose is fresh and vibrant with notes of lime zest, ruby grapefruit, green pear and mandarin oranges. There is an undercurrent of wet stones throughout. True to its terroir, it is refreshing with moderate acidity but it also has some weight in the mid-palate due to being aged on its fine lees.
Cabert Pinot Grigio / Friuli, Italy
Fruity, balanced, hints of nuts and toasted bread. Hors d’oeuvre, soups, fish and white meat.
Amalaya Malbec / Salta, Argentina
This wine is made with grapes from Las Mercedes Estate, sandy soil and very poor in organic matter. Mechanical harvest and aging in barrels of 25% of the wine with contributions from Tannat and Petit Verdot. Brilliant ruby color with violet edges. Strawberries, raspberries and ripe fruit with touch of pepper and spices aromas and elegant floral notes. In mouth, flavors of red fruit, spice and hints of vanilla from aging in French oak. Very nice freshness. Round, soft tannins lead to a delicate, lingering finish.
Speri Valpolicella Classico / Veneto, Italy
91 Points, James Suckling
This is packed tight with a concentrated, silky bead of ripe red berries and red cherries that drives through the palate, until fine, quite firm tannins block its path right at the end. Medium-bodied, but the concentration of fruit makes it feel heavier. Lots of energy here, but balance, too. Delicious now. Even better after another year in bottle. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
Lyeth Cabernet Sauvignon / California, USA
The Lyeth California Cabernet Sauvignon is has a touch of Petit Verdot for added complexity and depth of flavor. Crimson in the glass, this Cabernet Sauvignon offers expressive aromatics of red cherry, boysenberry-cedar and a touch of minerality and freshness like a seabreeze. A soft and generous palate with flavors of savory spice, bramble raspberry, chocolate-cherry and a hint of lavender on a long, lingering finish.
