Castelfeder Pertico Rosso Castelfeder Pertico Rosso $12.00

Such a pretty little wine! Deep, ruby color and a intense aromas of cherries, tobacco, blackberry. Just a little oak to mellow things out . The Cab and Merlot bring just a touch of richness and licorice but the Lagrein has the leading role with its bright red fruit flavors.



Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot $15.00

First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays.



Reunon Bonarda Reunon Bonarda $15.00

100% hard harvested, sustainably farmed, single vineyard Bonarda from Lujan de Cuyo in Mendoza. Lighter-bodied and easy drinking in style, full of cherry and plum flavors, with light tanninic structure and gentle acidity. Nose of blackberry, strawberry, and currant aromas and a touch of white chocolate and tobacco on the finish. Great for outside grilled anything!



Flegenheimer Bros Sparkling Shiraz Flegenheimer Bros Sparkling Shiraz $17.00

Yes it is indeed. Only Aussies would turn Shiraz sparkling! Displays a vibrant lush garnet color and a bouquet of rich berry fruits, dark cherries and soft lingering hints of integrated oak. Flavors of bright juicy red fruit, blackberry and sweet plum are held in check with silky tannins and a soft finish. Go on! What do you have to lose!?!



J. Wilkes Santa Maria Pinot Noir J. Wilkes Santa Maria Pinot Noir $24.00

From the cool Central Coast bringing ripe red raspberry and strawberry, tart cherry pie, white pepper, and clove with a lovely, earthy complexity. Great now but even a couple years should show increasing depth. A prime example of Santa Maria's potential and one of our favorite CA Pinots.

    #2 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.
