You can’t go wrong with this pair from California. Hanna Sauvignon Blanc from Sonoma is one of our top selling California Whites. Lovely notes of lemon, lime, and kiwi that is balanced with nice acidity. Next to Sonoma is Tangley Oaks Merlot from Napa Valley. Plums and dark cherries with a hint of spice followed by a long finish. Both wines shine together with food such as roasted chicken or lighter fare
A popular holiday choice, this year we feature two exceptional wines from France. The Tenet Le Fervent Rosé is a customer and staff favorite. This Grenache based Rosé from the Rhône Valley is light to medium-bodied with crisp strawberry and cherry notes – pair with light appetizers, salads, shellfish and poultry. A classic Merlot-based Bordeaux blend, the Mouton Cadet Rouge is the perfect complement for traditional winter ham or roasts. Flavors of ripe raspberries and currants are the stars here. A tin of buttery French cheese, a jar of scrumptious Dalmatia fig spread and delicate water crackers make this the perfect gift for your favorite gourmand
Our Favorite Things
This elegant trifecta is comprised of both staff and customer favorites, so it’s a sure winner. The Calling ‘Sonoma Coast’ Chardonnay is a great way to start a meal with friends and family. Aromas of apple, pear, vanilla, and floral notes open up to flavors of tropical fruit and apricots. The Rickshaw Pinot Noir comes from the Sonoma Coast in California where it has a cooler climate ideal for growing Pinot Noir. It shows aromas of ripe cherry, cola, and cranberry. The palate is laden with baking spices, strawberry, and black cherry enhanced by silky, round tannins with a bright acidity. Cohn ‘Bellacosa’ Cabernet is a North Coast style Cabernet Sauvignon that is bursting with lush, dark fruits. The wine is full-bodied and plush, showcasing rich flavors of black cherries and blackberries with subtle oak and vanilla.

The 2013 Larose de Gruaud from Saint-Julien, Bordeaux is perfectly balanced from the Left Bank. On the nose, it has aromas of raspberries, tart cherries and earth. On the palate, red berry fruits dominate with dusty tannins in the background. Creamy French cheese, a decadent saucisson and Water Wheel wafer crackers complete your al fresco Parisian meal.

This trio of world-class wines from the ‘New and Old World’ is sure to please the most ‘discerning’ wine drinker.

The 2016 Leviathan Red is a rich, bold wine built to go with food. This magical combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc is a solid blend from renowned winemaker, Andy Erickson. Complex and fruit driven with flavors of plum and blackberry with a light tobacco touch. Finally, the 2012 Ruffino Greppone Mazzi Brunello di Montalcino is a stunner from its rich ruby color to its vibrant acidity. One of the best vintages for Brunello to date!
Three cheery bottles to brighten your Holiday. Welcome your guests with the ever popular Josh Cellars Prosecco from Veneto, Italy. This elegant bubbly shows aromas of green apple and citrus with crisp acidity and a long finish. Moving on to the appetizers, the Love Block Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect accompaniment with its citrus, melon, and grapefruit notes. On the palate, the bright acidity is balanced by lemon and lime zest and more grapefruit flavors. For the main course, the Daou Cabernet Sauvignon is a stunning full-bodied Cab, with great balance and a firm tannin backbone. Notes of ripe black currant, vanilla bean and Christmas fruitcake on the nose lead into rich, dark fruits and flavors of spice box and cedar.
