If you haven’t experienced many Spanish white wines, then maybe this Albariño, a white wine from the banks of the Miño River, might be a great start. Very aromatic on the nose with ripe fruit flavors – think apple, peach and nectarine- straight from a farm stand. Pair this with light fare. I’m having this one the next time I have seafood to accompany this lovely, bright, varietally correct wine. An Exclusive-To-Star wine that won’t break the bank at $17.98.

XANTHOS 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville, Napa Valley, California

With only 3600 cases produced, this wine has become one of my FAVORITES! At $24.98, this is an awesome price for an Oakville cab. This wine is BIG bodied with dark fruit, cocoa and firm tannins. Next time you throw a steak on for dinner, crack this baby open and watch all the smiles because this one doesn’t disappoint! This wine also pairs well with a good book and great company.


This red blend is a proprietary blend but we’ve done a little research and know of at least a few of the grapes involved in the making of this wine: Syrah, Cabernet, Merlot, Zinfandel and Petite Syrah. It’s profile is layered and complex with ripe, red fruit and it’s quite food friendly. Aromas of raspberry and bing cherry with strawberry notes intermingled with hints of cedar and a subtle tobacco finish. At $14.98, come check out this bold blend that will keep you warm by a fire with it’s 14.5% alcohol by volume.

We describe this wine as being crisp, (dry) with fresh tropical fruit flavors and some subtle herbal notes. Regular price is $13.98, but when you buy it by the case, it’s less than $155 with taxes included. Maybe this will be your new favorite summertime go-to!
