Rioja


Sierra Cantabria Rose Sierra Cantabria Rose $15.00

This blend from Rioja is a very easy drinking wine with scents of strawberries, pomegranate, and underlying cantaloupe. The palate is more full-bodied and vivacious with notes of strawberry, watermelon, and aniseed with some good acidity to it still. Enjoy this by itself or with a hearty pasta or seafood dish!



La Cana La Cana $19.00

A step up from your average Albarino. From the beautiful coastal region of Galicia in Spain, this juice has a lot going on! A floral bouquet on the nose with minerals and herbs. Peach and apricot on the palate. More complex than you'd expect, not an entry level Albarino.



C.V.N.E Blanco C.V.N.E Blanco $24.00

This famed Rioja producer brings us a delicious blanco. Viura is blended with 20% Fino Sherry for a spectacularly well balanced wine. Green apple, white blossom and stone fruits while the sherry provides a slightly oxidized nutty character. Bigger bodied white with great acidity and finish.



Vina Alberdi Vina Alberdi $25.00

Enjoy slowly and savor.
