Chateau La Tour De Beraud 2011

Costieres de Nimes, France

This Grenache based Rhone blend is drinking beautifully right now.  Fruits of  wild red berries and red cherries hit into medium tannins and acids with touches of garrigue.  James Score: 89 Points

Conde Pinel Dry Rose 2015

Vino de la Tierra de Castilla, Spain

Deliciously dry and refreshing, this Spanish Rose offers flavors of wild strawberries and ripe cherries on the palate with medium plus acidity.  Hints of red apples and wild flowers quaff throughout the finish.  James Score: 89 Points

Blume Verdejo 2015

Rueda, Spain

Blume is 100% Verdejo that is bursting with energy and fruit.  Flavors of ripe peaches and nectarines meet fleshy stone fruits with medium acidity.  The finish is light and tropical with whiffs of mango and papaya.  James Score: 87 Points

    James,
    At the new Woodlands Mega Store, there is no place with all of your wines of the month together. You have to hunt them down individually. You are not getting maximum benefit from your marketing effort. In addition to having the wines in one spot, you should also post your newsletter nearby for those that did not get it or bring it to the store. There is plenty of unused space in the store so there must be a spot somewhere for this.

    Regards,
