Bodegas Naia Verdejo 2016
(1)
"Bright straw. A lively, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh citrus and orchid fruits, jasmine and dusty minerals, and a hint of anise builds in the glass. Incisive, mineral-driven Meyer lemon and a green apple flavors stretch out and deepen while maintaining vivacity. Closes minerally and very

"Great value summer white!It's hard to think of a better pairing for a hot summer night. The 2016 Bodegas Naia Verdejo is a mineral driving, light body Spanish white that is far more complex than your average Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc. It opens with citrus aromas on the nose, and strong notes of meyer lemon and lime after the first sip. This high acid wine with a long lingering finish will make it the perfect pairing for fish tacos or any chicken dish." — Matt

Mas Que Vinos Ercavio Tempranillo Roble 2014
(4)
90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 "The 2014 Ercavio Roble is pure Tempranillo that followed a classical vinification, fermentation in stainless steel, malolactic fermentation in cement and a short aging (six months) in used French barriques. The nose is very classic, too, nicely crafted, fine with a nice

Domaine Sorin Terra Amata Rose 2016
(1)
" The blend: 40% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 10% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, 10% Carignan, 5% Rolle, 5% Ugni Blanc. The result is a pale pink color with just a tinge of orange showing at the bottom of the glass; the color alone will bring a smile to your face. This is a very dry rose, strawberry and

"Does rosé season ever end?This fantastic wine from the renowned Provence region of France has a great balance of fruit and acidity. The Grenache dominant blend brings strong notes of raspberries and rose pedals, leaving your palate with a unique dry finish. This would pair perfectly with an assortment of cheeses, an avocado Caprese salad or a variety of seafood dishes!" — Amanda

Chateau Rousset-Caillau Bordeaux Superior 2015
90  Wine Enthusiast 
Wine Enthusiast 90"Firm and concentrated, this wine has ample weight and aging potential. Dry tannins are balanced by ripe berry fruit, juicy acidity and solid structure. Give this dense wine at least five years."~RV

Dave Phinney D66 'Fragile' Rose 2016
(3)
"In the glass, the wine shimmers with a pale hue of translucent garnet. Soft aromatics of dried rose petals prevail and invite a tasting. With bright hints of strawberry and ripe stone fruits, the wine leads to an opulent mid-palate. Finishing with purpose, it is long and riddled with layers of
"Spring RoséThe look of this wine alone is enough to peak your interest. A deep scarlet hue, notes of blackberry and raspberry shine through and leave you with a long-lasting finish. This well-balanced, medium body Grenache can easily be drunk on its own, but can also be enjoyed with a variety of seafood dishes or an assortment of cheeses." — Amanda

Lopez de Heredia 'Cubillo' Crianza 2008
92  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 92 "The first of the reds here is the 2008 Viña Cubillo Tinto Crianza from a cooler vintage that produced some austere and serious wines--a year with higher acidity and lively fruit. It feels effervescent and it makes you salivate. This is usually a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20%
