2018 Sheldrake Point, Dry Rosé, Cayuga Lake $12.99

Pale peachy pink in color, this 100% Cabernet Franc rosé is fresh and blossomy on the nose in a white-flower aroma, bolstered by a pleasing concentration of strawberry, melon and wet stone. There's good roundness and structure to the palate, with flavors that echo the nose. The finish lingers decently long on floral and tart red-fruit tones. 91 Pts Wine Enthusiast


2018 Bodegas Luzón Colección Blanco, Jumilla $7.99
Yellow in color with brilliant highlights and greenish hints. On the nose, green apple aromas blend with citric and tropical notes. On the palate, it is balanced acidity with a persistent finish. Blend: 50% Macabeo and 50% Sauvignon Blanc

 
2018 Whitehaven, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough $19.99
Pale yellow-green, with star bright clarity. Lifted passionfruit, grapefruit, gooseberry, and peach fruit flavors, with complexing hints of jalapeno, nettle, boxwood and blackcurrant leaf. A full flavored, medium bodied wine, with an abundance of regionally typical blackcurrant and gooseberry flavors that linger on the dry, clean finish. 92 Pts Decanter
