The Wines!!

Cote Mas Rose', Limoux $18.99
A lovely pink with delicate and persistent bubbles. Refined scents of honeysuckle, peach and apricot lead way to a soft mouthfeel of grapefruit and a hint of blood orange. An excellent aperitif that pairs well with all styles of cuisine.

Wine Spectator: 88 Points
The delicate flavors of dried cherry and berry are concentrated and well-structured.
Light spicy notes fill the crisp, juicy finish. A serious rose'.

Cloud Fall Sauvignon Blanc, Monterey $14.99

Cloudfall Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown in the San Lucas appellation with its rolling hills and beautiful vistas. The region is characterized by foggy mornings, warm days and cool bay winds in the late afternoon. Summer temperatures often fluctuate as much as 40 degrees from day to night, extending the growing season and giving the fruit time to develop full body and flavor. The soil is looser and well-drained, with shale and various sizes of sandstone that allow for deep root penetration, producing grapes that are brighter and fruitier.

Pacific Heights Chardonnay, Russian River Valley $24.99
"Aromas of Meyer lemon, honeydew melon, and roasted coconut. The mouthfeel is full
and viscous with integrated toasted oak flavors. The bright, crisp finish cleanses the palate."

– Christine Marchi, Winemaker 

Chateau St.Michelle Red Blend, Indian Wells $15.99
The Indian Wells Red Blend is an easy to enjoy red from warmer climate vineyards. The wine reflects the rich, round powerful style of Washington fruit, highlighting seven varietals. The wine offers jammy boysenberry flavors from the Syrah with a luscious concentration from the Merlot.

Cameron Hughes Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve 2012 $49.99
Dark, dark, dark – pretty much pitch black and very extracted, with a little red around the rim. It’s tight out of the bottle, with immediate notes of fresh turned earth and mocha. With just little air, brilliant raspberry aromas leap from the glass and are underpinned with brambly blackberry, more mocha, and enticing dark chocolate. A high-toned earthiness adds layers of complexity that are furthered by its broad and deep palate and tightly wound, tooth-staining tannins.
