Domaine Meix Guillaume Rully Rouge

A big, rich Burgundy from one of our favorite winemakers. Complex in that amongst the normal cherry and strawberry jam notes there is a strong whisper of Dr. Pepper and Cola flavors - almost cherry cola or fig like. Have no fear, the feminine touch is present in that the wine finishes light and airy. Truly a feat, and one that takes a womans touch to achieve.

 

PERFECT WITH

Duck breast, brie, chicken tikka, sesame seared tuna

Meldor Rioja

A traditional wine with a touch of modernity! Black forest fruit like blackberries and blueberries and chocolate covered cherries with oak providing an elegant aroma of toffee and sweet violets. Fleshy on the palate with good acidity and loads more of those rich forest berries. A fun wine for both new wine drinkers and traditionalists!

 

PERFECT WITH

Grilled tuna, sausages, flat top burgers, Korean BBQ.

Ontinar Merlot

Brick red with tons of density and a big, creamed berry bouquet with peony and baby's breath scents mingling in there. Toasted coconut, a little leather grip and vanilla start the wine's long, intense finish. It's dry, but still so delightfully fruity with added complexity and nuance from the toasted coconut notes. Oh, and it's organic!

 

PERFECT WITH

Port Salut grilled cheese, tomato soup, Cioppino

Mazziotti Merlot

Young vines that yield an intense ruby red colored wine. Soft and supple, elegant and balanced with pronounced scents of raspberry jam, vanilla and violets. On the palate the wine is soft with just a little tannic grip and loads of pleasant berry fruit, most noticeably strawberry and raspberry.

 

PERFECT WITH

Instant Pot curry, spaghetti and red sauce, McDoubles + fries

Sainte Avoye Blanc Tradition

Our first wine aged sous-voile, or under the delicate flor veil of yeast like sherry or vermouth! This intentionally oxidized Chardonnay blend is polarizing to say the least, but any fans of Sherry will be doing backflips out of excitement. The nose is savory and sweet, like soy sauce coated cashews in a field of citrus flowers. The palate is a cacophony of flavors and experiences: spice, freshness, fatness, acidity, nuttiness, perfume and a hint of creaminess. Watch out, it’s addictive to sip on and fantastic with a plethora of foods - including almost impossible to pair culprits such as artichokes and asparagus.

 

PERFECT WITH

Artichokes, roast poultry, asparagus, brussels sprouts

Lagar de Costa Albariño

Translucent green in color with notes of kiwi, kumquats and ripe sweet Greengage plum. Tart, bracing acidity adds a sour-then-sweet guava candy flavor before soursop and lemon round out the unctuous finish.

 

PERFECT WITH

Ceviche, fish tacos, fried tofu with peanut sauce, shrimp diavolo
