Rosenblum Zinfandel (California) Opaque blackish-purple color with deep violet streaks going out into a crimson, a smorgasbord of deeply layered & crushed black fruits; a very fruit-forward wine. Massive yet supple tannin structure with a balanced, firm mid palate & a long finish. This is a great wine to serve with anything hearty in the meat department, especially if it comes right off the grill & is accompanied by roasted potatoes & steamed green beans.
Concannon Pinot Noir (California) The vineyard was first planted & the winery built way back in 1883; the family is now into their fourth generation of winemaking. Spicy on the nose with nutmeg, cherry & tree bark aromas. The palate brings really crisp acidity & a soft-textured mouth feel. The balanced & structured mid-palate brings a lively burst of strawberry flavors that sing. The finish adds some tea-like tannins to the fruit flavors & is relatively long.
Stemmari Nero D'Avola (Italy) One of our best Sicilian wines for the price. A bright & easy-drinking expression of Nero D'Avola that offers sour cherry, ripe blackberry & pleasantly tart cranberry. Pair this with hearty first courses like four cheese gnocchi & with pastas, charcuterie, even pizza.
Monte Oton Garnacha (Spain) Shows bright & full Garnacha notes of ripe black fruits, as well as raisins, blueberries & plums. The mouth & finish are warm & gentle. Founded in 1958 in the town of Borja, Bodegas Borsao demonstrates what can be done with the Garnacha grape. Through a meticulous grape-selection process in the fields, & again when the grapes enter the winery, only the healthiest bunches are chosen for the wines. They are the best examples of the region known as "The Garnacha Land of Spain".
Terra Noble Sauvignon Blanc (Chile) The terroir & microclimate of Casablanca Valley provides optimum conditions for the best expression of Sauvignon Blanc. The Reserva is highly aromatic & has a deep yellow color with greenish hues. This is a modern-style wine. The fruit aromas vary from tropical to lime, grapefruit & subtle notes of asparagus. On the palate it is fresh with balanced acidity. Enjoy with appetizers, seafood, sushi, green salads & fruits.
Domaine LaFage Côté Est Blanc (France) A beautifully crisp, tangy white that's perfect for your holiday table. A stainless steel aged blend of 50% Grenache Blanc, 30% Chardonnay, & Marsanne. Light gold in color, with notions of melon, crisp pineapple & citrus, this hits the palate with a light, crisp texture, loads of acidity, & a classically styled, dry finish. Just straight up delicious & easy drinking.
