Silver Palm Chardonnay, North Coast, California, 2009: This “debut Chardonnay glistens in the glass and greets the nose with the perfume of apple blossom and pear.

A near flinty finish provides balanced acidity and leaves the palate yearning for another sip.” – Winemaker’s notes, $9.99

Doña Paula Selección de Bodega Malbec Mendoza, Argentina 2007: ““Dona Paula’s 2007 Seleccion de Bodega Malbec is a glass-staining opaque purple.
