The Wines!!
The Seeker Sauvignon Blanc, Craggy Range $13.99

Pale straw in colour streaked with green hues. Herbal elements of sage and mint are balanced by lime and passionfruit aromatics. A subliminal hint of vanilla and cream provide the added complexity. The palate’s rich core of fruit is tempered by citrus-like acidity lending balance and freshness.
Food Match: Aperitif or fresh salads

Sylvestra Torrontes, Bodegas Bressia $15.99
Greenish yellow color with good and brillant intensity.
The delicate bouquet reveals white peach, white flower blossom and roses aromas.
Well-balanced, elegant, fresh and fruity on the palate,
this Torrontes is full-flavored, unctuous and persistent in the mouth.

Catena San Carlos Cabernet Franc $23.99
92 Points Wine Advocate!  
"Yields for Cabernet Franc in 2018 were low, so there is less of the 2018 Appellation San Carlos Cabernet Franc, but the style goes back to the style of the 2016 more than the 2017, with very good freshness and very good integration of the oak, which is quite transparent and lets the character of the cool place come through in a more precise way. It's easily identifiable as Cabernet Franc, it's integrated and it makes you salivate." 
Winemaker's notes - The Catena Cabernet Franc Appellation presents a purple color with red ruby tones. The nose offers elegant aromas of spices, and fresh herbs as thyme and rosemary, red berries, cassis and raspberries, with layers of cedar. The mouthfeel is full and rich with cassis, raspberries flavors and notes of black pepper and oregano. The finish is bright and fresh with finely grained tannins.  This versatile wine is fantastic paired with rich meat dishes such as stews and braises, Latin dishes with heat and a little kick such as enchiladas or moles and lamb dishes and tomato based pasta and sauces. Additionally this wine is delicious paired with dark chocolate and berries and also served alongside a cheese plate.

Salentin Malbec Reserve $24.99
Medium ruby. Aroma of ripe plums, cherries and blackberries are complemented by a hint of tobacco.
A balanced and complex wine with flavors of red currants, black cherries and cinnamon.
Well-matched with barbecued meats, robust pasta entrées, baked ham, pork chops and sharp cheese.
