Chateau de Fontenille Entre-deux-Mers 2016 – $13.99
Tasting price – $12.59
(40% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Sauvignon gris, 20% Sémillon, 20% Muscadelle; Bordeaux, France)
“The vines of Château de Fontenille have flourished on gravel terroirs bathed in generous sun since the 13th century. Hidden among the vineyards was a pilgrimage route to the neighboring Benedictine monastery, Abbaye de la Sauve Majeure, whose monks tended to the vines for hundreds of years. Light gold in color, teeming with enticing aromas of citrus fruit and white peaches, Château de Fontenille Entre Deux Mers displays wonderful acidity and freshness on the palate coupled with exotic fruit and citrus flavors.”

Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 – $9.99
Tasting price – $8.99
(90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot; Robertson, South Africa)
“2015 was a very good vintage, as it was one of the driest summers experienced in a long time. As a result the grapes were exceptionally healthy and concentrated, displaying intense varietal flavors. Ripe blackcurrant and dried herb characters on the nose, which are supported by spicy oak notes. The palate is smooth and soft, with appealing ripe tannins and a long finish.”

Scacciadiavoli Montefalco Rosso 2013 – $18.99
Tasting price – $17.09
(60% sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino, 15% merlot; Tuscany, Italy)
“With a name that translates literally as ‘cast out the devils’, the Scacciadiavoli winery owes its eerie title to an exorcist who lived in the village by the vineyard during the 19th century. It was founded in 1884 by Prince Ugo Boncompagni-Ludovisi, who left Rome to dedicate himself to wine production, but since 1954 it has been owned by the Pambuffeti family. Slightly wild Umbrian red which gains its personality from the proportion of sagrantino grapes that add a ripe but tannic mulberry character to the sangiovese base. Good cold-weather drinking.”
