Matthew Fritz – Sauvignon Blanc – California > North Coast. Aromas dominated by melon and pink grapefruit with hints of pepper and elderflower. Nice, fresh acidity.
Paul Ponnelle – Pinot Noir – France. Subtle herbal accents add to the ripe berry and plum fruit on the nose and mouth of this wine. A sweet kiss of sweet spice on the end.
Silver Palm – Cabernet Sauvignon – California > North Coast. Dark ruby color with aromas of blackberry and dark fruit. Flavors of black cherry, spice and oak with round tannins that lead to a soft, lingering finish.
