|Lompoc Wine Co. Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills 2014 - Santa Rita Hills, Central Coast, California - $324.99|
This fabulous Santa Rita Hills Pinot from winemaking duo Raj Parr and Sashi Moorman is zesty, floral and totally hedonistic.

|Wind Gap Soif 2014 - North Coast, California - $324.99|
Soif is French for thirst, a name aptly chosen to describe a wine so fresh, crisp, lean and mouth watering, it pretty much begs to be downed on a warm afternoon with a plate of good cheese and prosciutto. Made of 30% Valdiguie, 23% Negroamaro, 21% Syrah, 18% Dolcetto and 8% Mourvedre, this is sourced from vineyards in Sonoma and Mendocino and shows incredibly pure raspberry, black currant and blackberry fruit. Slightly spritzy at first, give this wine some air and you'll be good to go. Only 672 cases produced.

|Jeremie Mourat Moulin Blanc 2013 - Loire Meridionale, Loire Valley, France - $324.99|
This lush, biodynamically grown blend of 60% Chenin Blanc and 40% Chardonnay is, interestingly enough, the ideal wine for Sauvignon Blanc drinkers. Briny and uplifting with zippy grapefruit and juicy lemon notes, this was fermented on its lees in concrete eggs before being bottled. This wine gets a wonderful dose of ocean influence due to the vineyard's proximity to the Atlantic, which brings a captivating seaspray element to the mix.
|Novelty Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 - Columbia Valley, Washington - $324.99|
This earthy, Bordeaux-style Cabernet from Columbia Valley, WA is super classy stuff, showing the perfect amount of polish and finesse.

Seamless and extremely elegant in the mouth, this was aged in neutral oak barrels. Novelty Hill is a side project of Mike Januik, one of Washington's most celebrated winemakers.
