1.  Trimbach, Pinot Blanc, Alsace, 2018, $20.95.  A highly respected Alsatian house, terrific food white, or on its own as well.  Drink now

2. Chateau Larose-Trintaudon, Cru-Bourgeois, Haut-Medoc, Bordeaux, 2009, $30.95.  On the higher end for a Cru-Bourgeois, but this one has decent age, and from a good vintage.  Drink now, scored 91 by Parker.

3. Halos de Jupiter, Cote du Rhone, 2018, $17.95.  Generally good value from lower end Rhones, and this will be worth trying.  Scored 90 by Parker.  Drink now

4. Faustino I Gran Reserva, Rioja, 2008, $31.95.  Nice age on this for a Rioja vintage that needs drinking now.  Scored 90 by Parker.
