Diora 2017 La Petite Grace Pinot Noir

Dark ruby in tone, this elegant wine boasts notes of blackberries and roasted almonds, which mingle with flavors akin to toasted marshmallows and brown sugar. Buried in a soft and velvety texture, tasters can discover hints of red cherry and blueberry in this full-bodied beverage. With a lingering finish, this wine is sure to leave an impression.

 

Emmolo Sauvignon Blanc

Less is more with this 2017 vintage that is a perfect balance of acidity and delicate fruit flavors. Peach and honeydew offer up a refreshing taste, while a smooth texture makes for a well-rounded drink. Pale gold in color, this sauvignon blanc is a bright choice for any endeavor.

 

90+ Cellars Prosecco

Perfect for warmer weather, this clean, crisp Prosecco is great not only for celebrations, but for food pairings and cocktails as well. Some of spring’s most celebrated flavors come out to play with hints of peaches and lilac, which are complemented by notes of ginger. Delicate bubbles make this a delicious decision that is light in taste.

 

Diora 2017 La Spendeur Du Soleil Chardonnay

This expressive chardonnay carries complex flavors that bring with them a beautiful golden hue. An apple aroma mingles with toasted oak and hints of tropical fruits, while notes of crème brûlée and vanilla bean bring a slight warmth. A medium-bodied wine, this chardonnay is inspired from d’Or, the French phrase meaning golden or sun-filled. CS
