The Wines!!
Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand $20.99
The new project of Erica and Kim Crawford (yes, the Kim Crawford), Loveblock is situated on a spectacular windswept promontory overlooking the sea. Passion fruit, vibrant and pure, marks the nose, while the plump palate reveals hints of gooseberry that linger through the extended finish.

Luscious with rich tropical fruit characters, the 2016 Estate Bottled Old Head Chardonnay is a showcase wine for the Dunnigan Hills terroir. This straw colored Chardonnay has tropical aromas of mango and melon complemented by hints of toasty oak. Flavors of crème brûlée are mellowed by pineapple, pear and ripe melon. An opulent Chardonnay that is balanced by a lingering fruit driven finish with lovely notes of butter and toasted marshmallow.

Lyric Pinot Noir by Etude $22.99
Pure ruby in color,  Lyric by Etude captures the essence of Santa Barbara Pinot Noir in its opulence of true red fruit. Rich in ripe cherry, red raspberry and fresh strawberry, this youthful Pinot Noir drinks complex with hints of cinnamon, cardamom, sandalwood and cola. Offering an elegant structure, silky tannins and bright acidity, this Pinot Noir is captivating in its youth and makes a wonderful counterpart to a variety of dishes.

Clos de Los Siete Malbec $18.99
Michel Rolland, the world-renowned Bordeaux winemaker, first went to Argentina in 1988. He recognized that all the conditions were right to grow a very great wine and partnered with other Bordeaux families to develop 7 vineyards on 2,000 acres in the Uco Valley of Mendoza.
Clos de los Siete is a single wine, a blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and a little Petit-Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
