The Wines!!
Lo Nuevo Albarhino $14.99
Inspired by these artistic principles, our compelling Lo Nuevo floral label images capture, with bold design and sensuous color, the essence of the wines – the crisp and delicate flavors of our Albarino and the rich, velvety, perfumed flavors of our Garnacha.
Albarino (Alvarinho) is a green-skinned grape variety native to Galicia on the north Atlantic coast of Spain. It is best known as being the key grape variety in the Rias Baixas DO, where it makes plump white wines with peach, citrus and mineral characters that pair perfectly with the local seafood.

Esporao Reserve Vinho Branco Blend $24.99
Crystalline, straw colour with green tones. rich and complex aromas with fruity notes of peach, Tangerine and toasted sandwich of Smee subtle. Creamy, well-balanced palate, good depth of ripe fruit, but with elegance and minerality, ends long and fresh.

Ron Rubin Pinot Noir Russian River Valley $29.99

91 Points Russian River Valley Ultimate Wine Challenge
Bright cherry, cranberry, and raspberry aromas with hints of dill, fennel, and spice. The bouquet is rounded out with sweet vanilla and berry flavors, with a balanced and elegant finish.

Three Rivers Red Blend, Columbia River Valley $13.99

Blend: 32% Merlot, 31% Sangiovese, 30% Malbec, 5% Syrah, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Cabernet Franc
We thought the 2014 vintage was impeccable only to have and even better 2015 vintage! The warm, dry growing season led to intense concentration and rich flavors. The vines were optimized by two great vintages in a row, which is apparent when you taste this 2015 River’s Red. Blackberry, blueberry and currant aromas give way to flavors of juicy dark fruit, cedar and tea.Strikingly complex, this easy-drinking red blend pairs perfectly with baked ziti and spicy sausage.
