    Shannon Ridge Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    California ($11.99)

    "The Shannon Ridge wines are all small production and always approachable, easy-drinking wines. The sauvignon, in particular, is well-rounded with lots of mango and papaya notes on the nose and palate and a hint of lemon zest which lends some brightness. The clean acidity makes this a great wine to pair with seafood and your other summer dishes." (750ML)

    Predator Zinfandel Old Vine 2015

    Central Coast, California ($14.99)

    "One thing that has always stood out to me about the Predator wines, and in particular the Zinfandel, is the smoky bacon note on the nose, laced with cherry and other red fruit. The wine is full bodied with loads of fruit and will hold up nicely to any grilled red meats you enjoy this Summer. Oh, and if you're curious about the lady bug on the label, it's because the lady buy is a natural predator for the grapes against harmful insects." (750ML)

    Marques de Caceres Rioja Crianza

    Spain ($10.99)

    "Marques de Caceres has always been my favorite of wines from Rioja. Their Crianza is 100% termpranillo and drinks richer than most of it's counterparts. If you are a california cabernet drinker but looking for something slightly lighter during the Summer months, then this is it." (750ML)

    Contrade Negroamaro

    Italy ($8.99)

    Negroamaro

    "This is a nice, approachable wine from Italy from a lesser known grape called Negroamaro. It is medium to full bodied with lots of dark fruit, laced with some sweet oak spice. This wine is tasty on it’s own or with grilled meats and bold cheeses." (750ML)

    Marco Felluga Just Molamatta Collio Bianco

    Italy ($10.99)

    Pinot Bianco / Pinot Grigio / Friulano

    "If you need a white wine for a party, look no further. This blend from Italy has some fruit and depth while remaining fresh and bright. It will pair well with all of your party food, but can also be enjoyed on it’s own. Enjoy!" (750ML)
