Bonanza Cabernet Sauvignon from Caymus $18.99 (reg. $23.99)

Rich, powerful and voluminous on the attack, a huge mouthful of crème de cassis concentration, silken and juicy in the mid-palate with excellent length and persistence. Fine, ripe tannins, at once supple and structurally present.

Bright and youthful, this Pinot Gris opens with fresh aromatics and a palate of pear, peach and tangerine with hints of orange blossom. Pristine and perfectly balanced, this dynamic Pinot Gris is elegant and traditional, yet vibrant and fresh-faced.
Hook & Ladder "The Tillerman" Red Wine $13.99 (reg. $17.99)
Claret is a term originally coined by the British to describe Cabernet-based wines. This Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc blend is alluring and sophisticated; it is memorably lush with a tapestry of smooth tannins and succulent flavors of wild berries, plum and anise.
