Shannon’s Pick
Sumac Ridge 2011 PRSV Gewürztraminer
Wonderful winter Gewurztraminer. Citrus and grapefruit continue into a lengthy finish with hints of spice to round out this balanced beauty.   Try it with spicy Thai cuisine or blue cheese menu items and casual sipping with friends and family around a warm fireplace. $14.99

Kim’s Pick
Mission Hill 2009 Perpetua
Unbelievable value at $29.99 and only a few bottles left.  The 2010 is back up to $34.99.  Get it while you can. Crisp and lively with lime, nectarine and grapefruit flavours, along with a faint note of praline and oak spice on the finish. A clean, pure reflection of their top Chardonnay. $29.99

Suzanne’s Pick
Goldhill 2009 Syrah
Gold 2012 West Coast Intl Wine Competition
Silver 2012 Indy Intl Wine Competition
This full-bodied Syrah is a rich and complex red wine with nuances of lavender, spice, anise, and vanilla with a delicate hint of raspberry, cherry, and pepper notes to round out this wine. Pairs well with grilled meats or medium rare cuts.  Especially delicious with Farm House goat cheeses from Agassiz – we carry them in store! $27

Miriam’s Pick
Nk Mip Cellars 2010 Talon
Brand new Syrah blend!  This powerful red blend displays aromatics of ripe raspberry, blueberry and a hint of pepper. Flavours of tobacco, chocolate and a hint of clove. $22.99

This elegant Chardonnay has aromas of Granny Smith apples & honey notes. Melon & peach flavours arrive on the first blush in the mouth. Mineral & citrus notes come through on the finish.  $21.90

Hestercreek 2011 Cabernet Merlot
This versatile Bordeaux-style blend. The blackberry and blackcurrant flavours of the Cabernet are enhanced by the soft muted flavours of plum and black cherry found in our Merlot.

Seven Stones 2007 Meritage
Absolutely amazing.  Round juicy flavours, a soft velvety mid-palate and an elegant finish that is prolonged by fine grained tannins and reveals hints of chocolate, espresso and raspberry.  $32.03
