Casal Garcia Sweet Vinho Verde
Reg. $8.99 SALE $7.99
CasalGarciaSweet

Hold your horses… This wine only has 7g of sugar per serving! Although the flavor is fresh, zesty, and sweet, the finish is so refreshing and delightful that the sweetness is much more of an afterthought. I suggest that if you don’t like sweet wine, please give this a shot. It hard not to like. Casal Garcia had been one of our customer favorites for years- don’t knock it ’til you try it!

Carmina Luna Spanish Boxed White- Reg. $20.99 SALE $16.99
carmina_luna_white_ml

We started tasting boxed wine thanks to all of your lovely feed back, now it’s almost every Friday we pull the tab on another great boxed wine. Boxes are truly big time! This is a fruit driven modern wine blended specially for today’s market by the prestigious Bodegas Luzón winery. The wine has a beautiful crisp yellow colour with prominent aromas of citrus fruits. Round and balanced palate with a long finish.

Charles Smith’s The Velvet Devil Merlot- Reg.$12.99 SALE $10.99
The Velvet Devil Merlot

If you don’t know who Charles Smith is, you are most certainly not from Washington State. This year Smith was awarded Wine Enthusiast’s Winemaker of the Year. After you taste this Washington Merlot, you’ll understand why. Complex and just-so-right flavors, pipe tobacco, bing cherry, and dried rose petals with a blend of subtle herbs and spice. Real wine. Real Merlot. Real Devilish.

Alias California Cabernet Sauvignon- Reg.$14.99 SALE $9.99
Alias California Cabernet Sauvignon
The wine-making team for Alias is a bit unknown… Those involved had “real jobs” at big wineries when they first decided to start the Alias venture. It was kind of a secret side project for all involved, so Alias was an appropriate name for their first wines, as it was a bit of an unsanctioned extracurricular activity. They kept their identities and sources as much of a secret as they could, working on Alias whenever they had time. Now the wines have hit the market and really impressed just about everyone. This leaves most of us wondering who these big winery side-project rebels really are. All I can tell you is they made a killer Cab!
