Huguet Can Feixes Blanc Seleccio 2016 $14.99
Apple, melon and apricot aromas are pure and come with zero interference from natural funk or oak. A blend of mostly Parellada with Macabeo and other white grapes, it hails from the highest vineyards in the Penedès. Flavors of melon, lime and wet stones reflect gravelly soils, and it's steady on a long finish. Best Buy 90 pts, Wine Enthusiast

Dr. Loosen Dry Riesling 2016 $11.99
More mineral than fruit, this dry white is a fantastic value, expressing Riesling's most crystalline character. Tangerine and green apple flavors are crisp and concentrated, showered in streams of lime acidity and cool mineral sensations. Drink now through 2020. Best Buy, 90 pts Wine Spectator

Hedges CMS Columbia Valley 2015 $11.99
Dark, deep ruby color. Aromas of fresh plum, raspberry, cocoa powder, cinnamon and cloves and a touch of dried herbs and smoke. Bursting with bright berry flavors, vanilla cream, cocoa and cinnamon. The mid-palate and finish are lush and full but with just the right balance of tartness and astringency. A great food wine, but also very pleasing to sip on while pondering life. 65% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah

Perrin Cotes du Rhone Reserve 2016 $10.99
A beautiful deep red hue that seems almost opaque. The nose shows caramel and spices that mingle with red berry fruit. The palate is full and deep, with fine tannins and good length. 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre

Badia Coltibuono Chianti Classico 2015 $19.99
Intense aromas of fragrant purple flower, crushed berry, menthol and cake spice steal the spotlight while the tight, savory palate doles out juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and tobacco. Taut, fine-grained tannins provide the framework. Drink through 2023. Editors' Choice. 92 pts. Wine Enthusiast

Muga Rioja Reserva 2013 $26.99
This is an excellent 2013 with such purity and finesse. Cherry, stone and light cedar aromas follow through to a full body, very fine tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Hints of cedar. It shows a focused energy. Drink now. 92 Pts James Suckling 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 7% Mazuelo, 3% Graciano.
