Here are the detailed wine notes:
Prime Cuts South African White | Western Cape, South Africa
Stunning stuff from the Swartland’s sandy soils. This wine is alive! Prime Cuts is a sensational white. You’re immediately attracted by the jasmine, lemon flowers, bright and citrusy overtones on the nose. The palate is a bright, textural thing of joy that reflects the sandy soils of its terroir. Packed with tangy fruits and blossom notes. Masses of bright, textural bang on the finish, this is such a more-ish wine demanding of a second case. Website

Giocato Sauvignon Blanc | Goriška Brda, Slovenia
A long-awaited complement to our highly popular Giocato Pinot Grigio, this Sauvignon Blanc is a classically-styled wine from one of Europe’s top appellations for whites, Goriska Brda, near Collio Orientali, Italy. Piercingly clean and bright, its body is taut and linear, with a compelling array of stone fruit and minerals on the palate. Aleks Simcic, the renowned winemaker, achieves a wine with stunning character and quality, and characterized by white floral and nettle notes without ever slipping into the full-tropical end of the Sauvignon spectrum. An opportunity to enjoy a beautiful Sauvignon at a terrific value. Website

Alias Red Blend |
The 2014 Alias Secret Agent Red is dark brick red in the glass, with bold aromas of ripe red fruits, pepper and, tobacco, followed with smooth cedar and plum. These notes continue onto the palate with hints of wood and earthiness. The tannins are smooth and well balanced, making this wine excellent on its own, or paired with your favorite medium-hard cheese. Website

Bastion De La Cite Red | Languedoc, France
Syrah,Merlot, Grenache. Bright red fruits and a hint of spice. Juicy and very quaff-able.

Flora Springs Napa Valley Red | Napa, California Website

Silver Ghost Cabernet Sauvignon | Napa California
Silver Ghost is a full-bodied, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon crafted from some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards. Complex aromas of black cherry, blueberry and cassis perfectly complement the wine’s rich, deep purple hue. The palate reveals lush fruit and notes of espresso, mocha, and toast providing a rich texture and depth guaranteed to please the palate long after the last sip.
