Whites

 

Casal Garcia (Vinho Verde), Portugal  

Vinho Verde is a blend of the native Portuguese varietals Loureiro, Trajadura, Arinto and Azal. It’s light, fresh, and effervescent — an excellent summer sipper on its own, but would also pair well with lighter seafood dishes, salads, and fruit.

Guenoc (Pinot Grigio), Italy

Instead of Pinot Grigio’s traditional “bone dry” finish, this floral, aromatic wine finishes sweet-tart and brings flavors of honeydew melon and lemon grass….  Prego!

Claude Val (Chenin Blanc blend), Languedoc, France     

6 white varietals (Chenin Blanc, Vermentino, Grenache Blanc, Chasan, Mauzac, and Sauvignon Blanc) make this wine vibrant, fruity, fresh, and well-balanced. Acacia and tropical fruit on the nose and palate.

Willm Gentil (Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Riesling, Muscat), Alsace, France  

This reserve displays black licorice, along with white peach and kumquat notes. It’s light-bodied, with clean acidity and a modest finish.

Lander Jenkins (Chardonnay), California

A bouquet of lemon zest, lemon cheesecake and bring Key lime ensnares the nose. The palate brings flavors of Lemon-lime, Key lime pie, honeydew melon and a hint of hazelnut. Crisp acidity and a rich, smooth mouthfeel. And it’s organic.

Hunter’s (Rosé of Pinot Noir), Marlborough, New Zealand     

Dry style with a bright floral lift of strawberries on the nose. Extended lees contact after fermentation provides a creamy texture to go with the berry fruit palate.

 

 

Reds

 

7 Deadly Zins (Zinfandel), Lodi, California  

Soft supple pepper and licorice-clove notes merge into a sinful marriage of deep, brambly blackberries and lustful cherries. The finish is clean on the palate with hints of rich vanilla, cocoa and mild tannins.

Bila- Haut (Grenache, Syrah, Carignan) Roussillon, France   

Deep garnet in color, this wine has aromas of black cherry. In the mouth it is fleshy, well-structured with the warm and savage of soils from the Roussillon area. Best served with beef or Mediterranean food.

Fred’s Red (Syrah, Zinfandel), California  

McNab Ridge’s Doggone Good Wine! Clear ruby color and luscious aroma of mixed blackberries, blueberries, cherries and black currant.  The flavor is juicy and fresh, with great structure and a long finish.  Suited to be drunk early, yet can be held for a year or two.

El Circo (Garnacha), Spain      

Voted a top value Spanish wine in Food & Wine magazine. The acrobat, endowed with the virtues of balance, agility and coordination. In the big top he represents a wine born of Garnacha grapes, in a circus style full of color, and aromas of fresh fruit, strawberries and cherries.

Gorgorito (Tempranillo), Toro, Spain      

Starting with a deep red color and red fruit aromas with ripe tannins this medium bodied Tempranillo comes from 35-year old vines in the Toro’s extreme continental climate. Unoaked. Ripe tannins. Unfiltered.

19 Crimes (Cabernet Sauvignon), California  

Nineteen crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction, British rogues, guilty of at least one of the 19 crimes, were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. This wine celebrates the rules they broke and the culture they built.
