The Wines!!
Nine Hats Pinot Gris $15.99
 A medium-bodied Pinot Gris that offers vibrant aromas and flavors
of white peach, orange blossom, honeysuckle and ripe citrus that lead to a pleasantly crisp finish.

Lyric Chardonnay, by Etude $21.99
An authentic expression of Santa Barbara Chardonnay.
Crafted to provide a pure sense of place, Lyric is reflective of the region’s nuances with its broad spectrum of citrus flavors
from Cat Canyon Vineyard and high tone floral notes from the Chardonnay fruit of North Canyon Vineyard. 
 The broad spectrum of citrus, tropical fruit and floral aromas.
A backbone of fresh fruit flavors and acidity balance the generous fruit weight, creamy texture and soft, long finish.

Fighting Chance Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara $24.99
 A full-flavored Pinot Noir that currently shows a rather tense structure, carrying flavors of black raspberry, boysenberry and black pepper.
Winemaker Adam Poirer sourced fruit from notable Santa Barbara vineyards,
including North Canyon, Fiddlestix and Cat Canyon and bottled in screw cap to retain freshness.

Loveblock Pinot Noir, Central Otago, Top 100 $29.99

92 Points WINE
"This is intense and muscular without being overdone.
Herbal and peppery notes bring nuance to the concentrated flavors of dark plum, mocha and baking spice.
The finish is richly tannic but not hard, making it approachable now but capable of aging through 2030."  Joe Czerwinski

Delille Cellars D3 $32.99

Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines, 2018, Wine & Spirits Top 100 Wineries, 2017 & 2018
The 25th vintage of this remarkable cuvee, leaps from the glass with an impressive and inviting abundance of fruit aromas, including pomegranate, fresh blueberry and currant. Restrained oak influence enrobes the fruit, adding essences of cocoa nibs and cherry cordial.  Dense and vibrant on the palate, with a pure fruit core, this wine offers elegant tannin and remarkable integration. Incredibly balanced barrel influence and Cabernet presence support an extended finish.
