Here are the detailed wine notes:
Bodegas Borsao Rose 2017 | Campo de Borja, Spain
Red luminescent colour with warm glows of copper salmon. Has a strong aroma of berries and white flowers. Very young and fresh in the mouth, well balanced with its acidity, rich in floral nuances and spices. Hints of tangerine and asian pear premiate this vintage. Ideal for appetizers, salads, grilled vegetables, seafood, fish tacos, and light casual fare. Website

Hess Select Sauvignon Blanc 2016 | North Coast, California
A wonderful growing season set the stage for ripe fruit with decidedly pronounced flavors and aromas. Grassy tones on the nose, with plenty of citrus and tropical fruit flavors alongside a crisp, bright freshness are accented by wonderful acidity and a full, rich mouth-feel. New World in style with a nod to New Zealand and fermented in stainless steel. Website

Noah River Wines Chardonnay 2016 | California
Golden straw in color. Big noseful of ripe pear, lychee, hazelnut, citrus zest, and toasty oak. Background hints of petrol and honey. Expressive, full-bodied palate of pear, tropical fruits, and citrus. Finishes long with lingering notes of pear, green apple and bright acidity.

Trapiche Broquel Malbec 2016 | Mendoza, Argentina
Intense purple red color with ruby hues. Aromas of fresh red and black fruits, floral notes, and earthy minerals, with an elegant touch of smoke. Rich and spicy on the palate providing a long and pleasant finish. Ideal to serve with grilled red meats, stews, pasta with mushroom sauce, and cheeses.

M.A.N. Family Wines Bosstok Pinotage 2015 | South Africa Coastal Region
A modern style emphasizing the softer Pinot Noir-like Characteristic of Pinotage. The wine is ruby-garnet red with a hint of purple. This Pinotage shows pleasing aromas of mocha chocolate and roasted coffee beans, followed by juicy flavors of red-berries, nutmeg and vanilla spice on the palate. The sweet fruit flavors of the medium-bodied Pinotage make it an ideal match for spicy food, pizza, smoked pork and flavorful venison dishes, or delicious just by itself.

Sasseo Primitivo 2015 | Salento, Italy
Ruby red with purple hues. Prominent tobacco and leather on the nose; ripe blackberry and blueberry with hints of cocoa, baking spice, and delicate pine. Juicy and medium bodied; reveals rich fruits, sweet herbs, and milk chocolate; leads to plush tannins and an elegant finish. Compliments barbecued and grilled meats, an assortment of pastas with red sauce, as well as bleu, Gouda, and goat milk-based cheeses.
