Castelgreve Chianti Classico 2014
Château La Dauphine Delphis FronsacFronsac is located right next to St. Emilion (where they make mega-pricey, sought-after wines.) My dad and I visited this winery this past summer. The vineyards are bio-dynamically farmed and all of their grapes are hand-picked. If someone at your dinner table likes Bordeaux, they’ll love this!

Abrazo Garnacha Rose
Abrazo Blanco Verdejo ViuraCrisp and refreshing, this versatile blend of two Spanish grapes, Verdejo & Viura, displays delicate floral aromas and a citrusy finish. With a bit of richness and complexity on the palate, the wine is well balanced.
Alain Corcia JulienasThis wine is the song that comes on and no matter what, you can’t help but to start dancing to. If you want to know, that song for me is Can’t Stop This Feeling By Justin Timberlake. This cru Beaujolais, made from the Gamay grapes, is irresistible and made by my friend, Alain Corcia. - Blake Leonard, Certified Sommelier Juliénas wines are earthy and weighty with a deep ruby red color with aromas of strawberry, violet, cinnamon, red currant and peony. The appellation sits in the far northwest of Beaujolais and due to the diverse terrain, Julienas wines are quite complex. Cru Beaujolais are some of the best valued wines in the world. This wine is well-made, balanced, food-friendly and just DELICIOUS! BLAKE'S PICK

Cátulo Garnacha AtlanticaCátulo Garnacha Atlántica has an intense red colour bordering on violet, elegant to the nose, with notes of violets and orange peel. Fresh, sweetish to the mouth and pleasant to the palate, it invites us to continue drinking and to enjoy. Try it with red meats, stews and pasta dishes.
Chateau Calet Bordeaux RougeA complex nose of blackberry, blackcurrant and strawberry, spicy tones. Soft and full-bodied, with good structure and acidity, as well as very elegant tannins. It is very long on the palate, with hints of vanilla and cinnamon. A classy Bordeaux.
