Trizanne Signature Wines Elim Sauvignon Blanc 2015 ($19). From the southern-most tip of Africa, this wine has fresh acidity, citrus and fig flavors with a dash of minerality.
St. Supery Rutherford Estate Ranch Merlot 2013 ($50). We loved the texture of this smooth yet complex merlot from the Napa Valley. Loads of ripe plum and blackberry flavors with a big dose of vanilla and mocha. Long finish makes it a merlot to savor.
Cigar Box Pinot Noir 2015 ($12). There is a lot of sweet red berry fruit in this luscious quaff from the Central Vallley. Good value in the pinot noir category.
