The Wines!!

Marques de Gelida Brut Reserve $19.99
Full of wonderful brioche aromas, apple and pears. Great weight on the pallet and wonderful texture for a sparkling wine of this price. Aged over three years in bottle before release and produced from the top selection of juice from the first pressing. 100% Methode Champoise
35% Macabeo, 30% Xarel-lo, 20% Parellada, 15% Chardonnay

Carne Humana White $17.99
Co-fermented and barrel-aged as a single blend. It is pale straw with brilliant green hues, has intense fruit aromas of citrus blossom, melon, pineapple and guava with hints of flint or wet river stones. Crisp and dry on the palate with a focused acidity, hints of minerality and tropical fruit highlights. It is medium-bodied with a long, fresh finish.

Quilt Chardonnay $34.99
Drawing from a patchwork of six prime Napa Valley AVAs to create full-bodied, rich, and decadent wines, Quilt exemplifies the classic structure of wines from the region, while the blending of fruit from a variety of vineyards allows the wines to maintain more complexity and a better style consistency from vintage to vintage.

Bodegas Ordonez Triton Mencia $21.99
Triton is made from the Mencia grape, which is native to Bierzo and Valdeorras.
Fermented in stainless steel. After fermentation, it is transferred to primarily one to three year old Burgundy and Bordeaux barrels. It is then aged for 10 months.

Robert Parker 91 pts.

Double Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon $29.99
Showing a deep ruby color in the glass, our 2014 Double Canyon Vineyard Syrah expresses aromas of rich caramel, cedar and hints of rose petal. The entry possesses good structure with generous amounts of black and red fruits, accented by vanilla crème, root beer, black tea and spice, leading into a long, juicy finish with lingering notes of mouthwatering red plum.
