Wagner Stempel Rosé 2016
Rheinhessen, Germany

 Daniel & Catherine Wagner are the owners working along w/ Daniel Wagner & Oliver Müller, the winemakers!
 Established in 1945...currently in its 9th generation. Also a certified organic winery! 
A blend of 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Sankt Laurent w/aromas strawberry, kiwi, and bubble gum, all underscored by a subtle minerality and high-toned rosewater and geranium elements. The medium palate is as refreshing as can be, with flavors of tart cranberry, red apple, and a smoky white pepper note all impeccably balanced on even, gentle acid.

Valpane Barbera “Perlydia” 2012
Piedmont, Italy     
Pietro Giuseppe Arditi began working the land in 1900 under a sharecropping agreement, and after his passion and dedication to his work had earned Fojadelli’s confidence, he purchased the estate in 1902. Over the years he planted more vines and raised his family at Valpane. His eldest daughter, Lydia, was a brilliant student with a bright future in mathematics, but her mother needed help around the house so, like many girls of her generation, she was pulled out of school at an early age. But instead of cooking and tending to her elderly grandmother, Lydia followed her father out to the vineyards, where she quickly became fascinated by his craft. Before long, she was working alongside him and showing a keen business sense in dealing with clients. As Pietro grew older she gradually took over the estate, continuing to make the same structured, aromatic wines for which Valpane was already known. Today Lydia’s nephew, named Pietro for his grandfather, runs the estate. 
This Barbara has zippy acidity with a round body. Runs beautifully through the palate with expressive flavors of dark cherry, violets, and plum with a juicy texture.

Cotes de Provence, France

For centuries, dry rosé wine has been a staple in the south of France, where it is embraced as the best lunchtime, seaside, and all-occasion wine. Particularly in the coastal Provence region, the heart of the world’s dry rosé production, a passion for dry pink permeates the culture.
This exceptional rose of Provence consists of 60% Syrah,10% Cinsault and 30% Grenache. A sensual rosé with an exotic perfume of candied violets, lilies and strawberries.
The unique indigo-colored bottle maintains the wine’s fresh profile for as long as possible. This rose is full of youth making it the perfect pick for your Mom...forever young!

Sierra Reed “Alexia’ Grenache 2016 
 Barossa Valley, Australia 
Reed Wines are single vineyard expressions made by Sierra Reed in Victoria. Always an inquisitive and enthusiastic drinker, Sierra’s journey in wine began in New Zealand whilst filming with the Family of Twelve. Interviewing those leading families of New Zealand wine inspired her to change her life and begin the journey from drinker to maker.                                                                   
This Alexia Grenache is a red to look forward to from a winemaker to look out for. Named after the god-daughter of Sierra Reed, this is true testament to the women of wine. Sierra was actually pregnant and gave birth during this wine’s vintage.
Undeniably Grenache with its confected nature but very highly perfumed with terra cotta and earthy tones. The wine has a light chalky tannins and youthful fruit sweetness with savoury layers due to spontaneous fermentation. Truly balanced and transitions perfectly on the palate.
