1. Toad Hollow Unoaked Chardonnay, Mendocino $13.99 Sale $10.99
Fresh doughy aromas, crisp citrus and apple flavors, and a light blanket of buttery nutty nuances make this a delicious and complex wine. It's light to medium in body, has a smooth texture and vivid fruit.
Light pastas, grilled chicken and thin sliced pork chops.
2. Willakenzie Pinot Gris, Willamette $19.99 Sale $15.99
Perfectly differentiated from the winery's equally excellent Pinot Blanc, this is a bit fleshier, with fresh flavors of apple and pear. The texture, mouthfeel and mineral-drenched acids all flow into a mouthwatering finish.

3. Landmark Sonoma Coast Chardoonnay $23.99 Sale $18.99
Landmark Vineyards was founded in the 1970’s by a group that included Damaris Deere Ford, great-great-granddaughter of John Deere, inventor of the first steel plow. The wine is structure and rich with a solid core of apple pastry, fig and guava flavors that offer a creamy texture, nutmeg and clove notes show on the spicy finish.
Crab cakes, lobster salad, Vichyssoise
4. Santa Cristina Toscana $11.99 Sale $9.99
On the nose, delicate notes of cherries and ripe, red fruit, typical of Sangiovese and Syrah, mingled with the characteristic balsamic flavors of Merlot. The palate is ample and supple and the finish and aftertaste are fruity.
Tuscan Crostini, Mushroom Ravioli, linguine alla Pomodoro
5. Erath Oregon Pinot Noir $19.99 Sale $16.99
Over delivering for its price, this juicy red is lean and approachable, with succulent red fruit flavors of cherries and plums. Simple enough, but there's a brambly, savory undertone lying beneath all the fruit that lends complexity. Good bang for the buck!
Grilled salmon, pan seared five-spice duck breast or grilled vegetables drizzled with olive oil, a few drops of balsamic glaze.
6. Patz & Hall Pinot Noir $39.99 Sale $29.99
A complex, layered expression of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir with inviting aromas of warm cherry cobbler, butter crust, cinnamon, clove and Mexican chocolate. This wine is smooth and elegant, with creamy tannins supporting abundant layers of sweet, pure fruit.
Duckling with a cherry sauce, roast ham, or tossed salad with craisins, and goat cheese.
Founded in 1972 in Rutherford, Conn Creek secures fruit from vineyards in nearly all of Napa Valley’s renowned sub-appellations that are proven to grow exceptional grapes that produce wines of character and expression. Concentrated juicy raspberry and plum notes with underlying perfume and cedar. Broad, round tannins with a touch of vanilla on the finish.
