La Petite Perriere 2017 Sauvignon Blanc, $11.99
On the nose this wine has an elegant and harmonious expression of white flowers, elderflowers and acacia, balanced with a light minerality. After a silky attack, the middle of the palate wakes up in a pleasant freshness, finishing with fruity notes of white peaches and lychees.

La Petite Perriere 2017 Rosé, $12.99
The complex delicate nose is a subtle blend of rose petal, grenadine and berries. The attack on
the palate is supple, light and fresh. The finish has a pleasant softness, enhanced by a slight vivacity, which accompanies fresh aromas of raspberry and grenadine. 
 
La Petite Perriere 2016 Pinot Noir, $12.99
On the nose, aromas of blackberry and blueberry. The palate is fleshy at point of entry then full, ample and generous, flowing into a crisp cherry-driven finish with an ultra-fresh beading sensation. A mouth filling wine offering up the generosity and typicity of a Pinot Noir that has just hit maturity.

Big Ol' Bargain Bottles of Spanish Wine

Flores de Cerezo 2013 $40
"Deeply pitched aromas of cherry, cassis and violet, with a touch of cracked pepper building in the glass. Pliant black and blue fruit and dark chocolate flavors show firm spicy bite, with a subtle licorice nuance emerging on the back half. Finishes sweet and gently tannic, leaving smoke and dark berry notes behind." 89 Pts, Vinous

Solar De Randez 2010 Reserva Rioja $40
 "Powerful aromas of ripe cherry and blackberry, with suave floral and mineral notes and a suggestion of vanilla. Full, fleshy dark berry and floral pastille flavors are lifted by a smoky mineral note, gaining energy with air. Finishes lively, focused and persistent, showing a hint of mocha and even tannins."  91 Pts, Vinous

Ceres Ribera Del Duero 2013 Crianza $39
"Fresh dark berries, cherry pit, licorice and a hint of vanilla on the fragrant, incisive nose. Juicy and tightly wound, offering pepper-tinged bitter cherry and cassis flavors that stretch out slowly with aeration. Closes taut, spicy and long, with smooth tannins coming in late and adding shape and grip." 90 Pts, Vinous
