2012 Domaine des Lauriers Picpoul de Pinet (France)    $11.99

Picpoul

100% Picpoul

Very pale, white color. Elegant nose dominated by grapefruit and acacia. Fresh, lively, and fleshy mouth with a very soft finish on the white flowers and citrus aromas. Serve cool at 57ºF. An excellent aperitif al fresco. We find this a perfect match for grilled fish or any kind of seafood.

2010 Aubai Mema Liverna (France)   $11.99

70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Grenache Noir, 10% Merlot

This wine is a deep purple color. The nose opens with notes of cocoa and ripe red fruit. In the mouth it is round and full and melted, fine-textured, anchored by bracing tannins. Its aromas are long and fine and it finishes with a touch of firmness that helps keep its balance. This is a perfect wine for any kid of hearty beef dishes, blue (stinky) cheeses, Lamb (esp. braised, grilled or roasted), game and grilled steak.

2010 Scarborough “The Main Event”  (Washington)    $24.99

Scarborough

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 5%Merlot

“With so many great vineyards to blend with, this tasty treat as a textbook is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon, in the best ways Washington has to offer. Essence of black berry pie, tobacco, pencil shavings, black plum and cherry are supple and seductive. Sweet cedar plays a role throughout, adding attractive aromas and depth to the finish, yet it remains balanced and can age extremely well.  5-8 years would have this wine peaking!”

2011 Domaine Gabelas Terres Rouge Saint Chinian (France)    $14.99

gabelas-cochon-z

60% Syrah 30% Grenache 10% Carignan –  Certified organic from the Languedoc Roussillon region of France.

A robust, medium bodied red wine that shows ripe fruit flavors, slight pepper, and modest tannins. This is a fantastic Easter wine, as it will pair perfectly with grilled Lamb, duck, roasted beef, pork and veal.  For those non meat eaters, this wine also goes nicely with shellfish and vegetable pizza.

2011 Donna Silvina Malbec (Argentina)   $14.99

100% Malbec

This full Malbec is a blend of young and old vines from two individual vineyards. Deep purple color with some violet hues, this friendly wine shows matured red fruit with subtle hints of cedar. Pretty classic and darn tasty! Serve with burgers and blue cheese or pizza with mushrooms. You can also give this wine a try with Mexican food (pork or beef dishes).
