The Wines!!
Le Jade Viognier $9.99
In southern France, Viognier enjoys warm sunny summers that help it develop heady aromas of honeysuckle, melon, guava, and ripe peach.  It is full and rich on the finish.  Almost opulent with just a tinge of acidity that makes it bright and fresh. 
It works very well with richer dishes and even spicy curry sauce.

Alain de la Treille Vouvray $13.99
Maison Alain de La Treille was founded in 1885 in the heart of the Loire Valley. 
This Vouvray Chenin Blanc is elegant and fresh with a soft and ripe fruit palate marrying hints of honey and apricots. 
Try it with pork and asian cuisine.

Michel Thomas Sancerre Rose $22.99
Light, bright pink. Redcurrant, strawberry and chalk on the nose, with a touch of singed orange gaining strength with air.
Dusty red fruit and citrus flavors are braced by tangy minerality, which adds lift and cut.
Uncompromising in the best way, finishing with excellent clarity and echoes of lemon and orange zest.

Chateau Bellevue Côtes de Castillon $18.99
This Merlot dominated blend has enough structure to hold up to your favorite grilled meats – barbecue, flank steak, and pork chops just to name a few.  The wine offers a rich and intense bouquet of blackcurrant, blackberry and strawberry.
It is smooth and full in the mouth with a velvety texture.

Rubus, Barossa Shiraz $20.99
From Australia's most famous wine region, this concentrated Shiraz is is dark in color, rich, and dense.
There are ample tannins balanced by the powerful fruit.
You will note the hints of blackberries, mint, and eucalyptus flavors upfront and in the finish. 
Pairs with rich dishes such as lamb shank, Osso bucco, beef steak or roast duck.
