-2012 BODEGAS ATALAYA “Laya” Garnacha-Monastrell $9.50
-2010 DOMAINE DE L’ECU Muscadet “Orthogneiss” $14.95…I just picked up a tiny bit of this awesome organic/biodynamic Muscadet from one of the Loire Valley’s greatest producers of this perfect seafood and shellfish wine on close out. The old price was $24 a pop, and besides the sweet $9 a bottle savings this is also, after a couple more years in bottle, drinking perfectly!
