Southwest France


Capitelles des Fermes Capitelles des Fermes $11.00

A beautifully feminine wine from southern France. Notes of cherry, chocolate, spice with a touch of earthy undertones. Soft, smooth tannin, just an easy drinking wine. At this price it's best to grab a couple for reserves.



Mission La Caminade Cahors Mission La Caminade Cahors $15.50

Malbec's home is France, and the difference in elevation and the cooler climate make for a different take on this varietal. With black cherry, blackberry, and black pepper flavors, it's leaner, meaner and enjoys an hour to open up before drinking. If you love Malbec, you owe it to yourself to try a Cahors. With 15% Merlot as well.



1911 1911 $17.00

A single vineyard where 14 varieties grow. The average age of the vines are 100 years old. Blended together to create a deep concentrated wine with robust aromas of dark brambly fruit, white peppery spice, dried flowers and herbs. Great structure and acidity and overall a fun wine. Grenache is the dominant grape by a slim margin with many local varieties in the blend.



Clos Troteligotte, K Or Clos Troteligotte, K Or $26.00

Spicy aromas and flavors of plums, violets, and blackberry with focused mineral notes, rich texture and sturdy tannins. The iron chunks scattered atop this vineyard are so pure you could sell them to a smelter. Emmanuel farms organically with ease (he is above the fog line and therefore has no issues with mildew). Rows are plowed by horse. A remarkable and memorable Malbec.

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.

    An excellent introduction to Bierzo's native varietal, the palate is fresh, elegant, and clean. Energetic aromas of fresh blue fruits, violet and white pepper, plus a subtle touch of licorice. Supple and gently sweet on the palate, offering sappy boysenberry and floral highlights with a hint of smokiness.

  • Schieferkopf

    Acid freaks rejoice! This dry Riesling shows the classic stone minerality and petrol on the nose with floral aromatics as well. The palate yields citrus, green apple and stonefruits with mouth watering acidity. A great food wine or one simply just to drink.

    Lightly sparkling, fruity and sassy, Poquito is small in size but big on taste. Delicate floral aromas combine with a sweet yet refreshing palate of ripe peaches, pears and apricots. Apply liberally at any social occasion. Great right out of the bottle but really amazing with mint and rum as a mojito!
