Chateau Simard 2004,
St. Emilion, Bordeaux $37.99
(only $32.29 with GOGO discount)
Brilliant ruby in color with some russet colors, this is well-aged and ready for drinking. Showing tertiary characteristics, expect hints of berries, violets, and earth on the nose with black cherry and plum on the well-rounded palate. A most fine example of a right bank wine, and an aged one at that, Simard is a definite show-stopper
Sipp Mack Pinot Blanc 2011 $15.99 (only $13.59 with GoGo discount)
Supple, fresh, and pure, this wine emerges from an extremely strong vintage. On the drier side, it possesses deliciously crisp acidity and delicate aromatics of honeyed pear that make this a natural accompaniment to heavy Germanic-inspired dishes, like cream sauces and tangy sharp sauerkraut.
Willm Riesling Reserve 2012 $13.99 (only 11.89 with GoGo discount)
Comprised entirely of Riesling, here you are greeted by a traditionally dry-styled Alsatian white. Aromas of apple, citrus, petrol, and pears are well defined on this rich and well concentrated effort.
