Cantina Frentana Cococciola Terre di Chieti, Italy 7.00
an igt from umbria. cococciola is grape from the area rarely seen bottled by itself. apparently frentana has figured it out because this wine has lovely fruit and balance. great with food. awesome by itself.

Banyan Gewurtztraminer Monterey County, California 8.50
with the proper pockets of cool fog, California can produce some tasty
