Bubbles   

Crémant de Bourgogne

NV Val de Mer Brut Nature Rosé Chablis, France 13/50

We alway look forward to getting these bubbles back on the menu each year. Crowd pleaser if there ever was one, 100% Pinot Noir, beautiful acidity, red cherries, and a dollop of strawberry cream on top of it all. Red apple, lime, delicious.

Lambrusco Grasparossa

  Barbolini ‘Lancillotto’  Castelvetro, Italy  12/46

One man’s crusade to bring Lambrusco to its rightful place in everyone’s fridge has only just begun.  Order some salami and a glass of this and let the sparks fly. Black cherry, blood orange, grip.

Champagne

 Moutard Brut ‘Grande Cuvee’ NV  Côte des Bar, France 32 (375ml)

A great little house nestled in the cool, southern stretches of Champagne, made with 100% Pinot Noir, a rich mouthfilling wine with loads of texture.  Brioche, strawberry, red apple.

White

Crisp & Refreshing

Grüner Veltliner 

2017 Glatzer Carnuntum, Austria 11/42 

There’s nothing quite like the annual vintage rollout of all the glistening new wines pouring in from around the world.  Take for instance this snappy, green, freshy, it’s like drinking really cold sunshine, as much refreshing as it is alive.   Green pear, fresh cucumber, white pepper.

Albariño

2016 Columna  Rías Baixas, Spain 10/38 

 It’s nice to see grapes that were unfamiliar to most people 10 years ago suddenly become mainstream and loved by all who try.   Albariño gives you everything Sauvignon Blanc does with way more personality and sass.  Quince, lemon zest, jasmine.

Aromatic & Lush

Gros Manseng

2016 Clos Lapeyre Jurançon Sec Biarritz, France 11/42 

  So how does one describe this wine?  Let’s hypothetical say it’s like a blend of Sauvignon Blanc (without the herbs) and Chenin Blanc (without the earthiness).Suffice to say it’s guaranteed to be unique and delicious.  Dried apricot, peach, vanilla. 

Riesling

2016 Kruger-Rumpf Estate  Nahe, Germany 12/46

Our job is to sift through and ferret out wines that offer the best bang for your hard earned buck.  With riesling, in particular, the immense pleasure we derive in finding the exact wine we know both believers and non-believers will love is one of the more exciting things we do.  So here’s to another excellent find! Lime blossom, pistachio, yellow plum.

  Chubby & Satisfying 

Chardonnay

2015 La Chablisienne Chablis ‘La Pierrelee’ Chablis, France 14/54

We get asked this question A LOT: “So is this Chardonnay really oaky & heavy?” Our response: “You haven’t lived until you’ve crushed a glass of ice cold Chablis.”  Suffice to say Chardonnay has gotten a bad rap in America today. We’re changing that perception one glass at a time, nothing could thrill us more.  Tart green apple, lemon peel, fossilized seashells. 

Red 

Bright & Juicy

Cabernet Franc 

2017 Dom. de la Chanteleuserie ‘Alouettes’  Bourgueil, France 12/46

If there ever was a wine to drink year round, this would be the one.  Delicious on its own and even better with some food, this wine encourgeses gulping. Bay Leaf, wild berries, mint

Cinsault 

2017 Turley ‘Bechthold Vineyard’  Lodi, California 14/54

A fun little wine from one of California’s most iconic and sought after producers.  What makes this wine so special is two fold: one, you don’t find much Cinsault grown in these parts and two, it’s refreshing to see wine from Lodi.  White pepper, cranberry, herbaceous.

Layered & Rich

Cabernet Sauvignon  

2014 Marietta ‘Arme’  Sonoma, California  15/58

Great domestic cabernet is always a tough find given the higher cost of producing these wines.  When we do ferret one out it becomes an instant favorite. This wine is decidedly old school in its profile, dark stone fruit, black olive, herbs, more structure, serious wine for not a lot of money.  Tobacco, licorice, cigar box.

Earthy & Dry 

 Tempranillo

2012 La Rioja Alta ‘Vina Alberdi’ Reserva  Rioja, Spain 13/50

A classic wine from a classic region, a crowd pleasing style from one of Rioja’s oldest producers.  The beautiful aromatics give you a sense of the alchemy and effort that goes into making this wine; what you taste will make you a believer..    Wild strawberry, toasted caramel, sweet mint.

Sangiovese

 2014 Fattoria del Cerro Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Italy 12/46

Dip your schnoz into a glass of this lovely red and try not to drink it through said schnoz. A hearty wine full of stuffing, vigor, and vim, all muscle, no flab.  Sweet black cherry, dusty soil, tobacco.
