PAUL JABOULET ‘Parallele 45’ Blanc 2015
Cote du Rhone, France $11.99
The name originates from the 45th North parallel, which runs two kilometers from the domaine’s cellars near Tain L’Hermitage. White peach, melon and a hint of honey on the fragrant nose and in the mouth. Smooth and fleshy; a hint of lemon pith adds back-end lift and a refreshingly bitter edge. Finishes firm and nervy, showing good length and a lingering suggestion of ripe melon.

JAKOB SCHNEIDER Spatburgunder Rose 2015
Nahe, Germany $14.99
For years, the Schneiders have been quietly making great Nahe rieslings, and their pink similarly offers far more than this modest bottle lets on. The labeling is a bit old-school Germany—the feinherb denotes some sugar, and pinot noir is listed under its German name. Never fear. This is subtle and finessed, and the sweetness is quiet, more showing up as ripe, mashed cherries, plus poppy seed flavors and a darker spice. It’s a sleeper hit.

RIDGE Ponzo Zinfandel 2015
Russian River, California $38.99
Focused on bright berryish fruit from the outset, this wine picks up notes of raspberry jam and roasted vanilla beans along the way. Its full-bodied stance on the palate is held back from tipping towards heaviness by a nice bit of vibrancy in its flavors and slightly puckery latter-palate acid and tannin.

BOEKENHOUTSKLOOF ‘The Wolftrap’ Shiraz Mouvedre Viognier 2015
South Africa $9.49
The nose entices with its abundance of ripe plums, blueberries, slight spiciness and notes of violets. Dark berry fruit follows through onto a juicy, vibrant mid-palate with svelte tannins and a silky texture. The wine shows exceptional balance with fresh, integrated acidity. Plummy fruit and spice lingers on the finish. Blend of Syrah, Mourvedre and Viognier.
