The Wines!!
La Capranera Falanghina $18.99

A hidden gem, offering lovely fruit and incredible value!
An interesting white with a touch of body and hints of tropical and stone fruits but without being over the top.  
A perfect combination of cedar with tropical notes and accents of banana.
Delicious with fresh cheeses such as Mozzarella di Bufala and also excellent with shellfish and seafood. 

Coltabards Sancerre $33.99

Vibrant floral aromas (white flowers) and fruit (grapefruit, orange) on the nose.
The palate is round and well-balanced with remarkable length and freshness on the finish.

Brisson Morgon "La Louve", Beaujolais $29.99
Deep ruby red with purple red brim. Pleasant, fruity nose with notes of cherries, overripe strawberries and some herbs. Mouthfeel is fresh, fruity, quite light, with smooth tannins, nice acidity, and notes of red berries, cherries, overripe strawberries, some minerality, herbs, and a touch of black currants.
Excellent length and balance.

Pala Cannonau Riserva, Sicily $34.99
93 Points Vinous!  
"Raspberry preserves and sweet autumnal spices offset by dried citrus peels and incense form a seductive display on the 2017 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva. This is silky-smooth and polished in feel, gaining tension through mineral-tinged tart black fruits and savory herbal notes."

The Wines!!
Poema Rose' Cava, Brut $13.99

Pale pink color with a bright strawberry nose; fresh and juicy with lively bubbles and a tangy, crisp style.
This amazing value is 100% Trepat (a Catalonian grape) made via the traditional method.

Kettmeier Pinot Grigio $23.99
This wine has a bright golden hue with a refreshing nose that integrates classic pear and apple fragrances with elegant hints of floral and citrus. The palate, dry on entry, reveals substantial structure and lingering, refreshing savoriness that make this a versatile wine of outstanding personality.
FOOD PAIRINGS: A fine aperitif that is also a superb match for seafood salads, meat or fish-based starters served with succulent sauces, full-flavored soups, and white meats.

Ogier "Artesis" Cotes du Rhone Blanc $16.99
The 2018 Ogier Artesis Cotes du Rhone Blanc is light and crystalline, very pure with discreet green reflections. A rich and complex nose expressing the plurality of grape varieties. Exotic and citrus fruits blend with apricot and white peach with floral notes and white pepper. The mouth balances the expression of the fruit, the freshness and the roundness typical of our southern Côtes-du-Rhone. The delicate touch of bitterness in the final brings an extra dimension to the tasting, the touch!
This wine perfectly accompanies seafood dishes (scallops, shrimps, prawns, fresh line fish) with herbs (sage, tarragon) or roasted chicken.

Jackson Estate Pinot Noir, Petaluma Gap $39.99
90 Points Wine Spectator!  
"A delicate red, with notes of violet and crushed granite to the bright cherry, pomegranate and wild berry flavors. The spicy finish reveals hints of hot stone. Drink now through 2022."  
Winemaker's notes - The daily appearance of gusty winds causes a cool-climate environment, which creates smaller berries with thicker skins. The end result is a richer, concentrated Pinot Noir, loaded with flavors of red and blue fruit alongside savory spice notes.

Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon $34.99
90 points Wine Enthusiast  
“A well-made red blended with 14% Merlot as well as smaller amounts of Malbec and Petit Verdot, this crowd pleaser is robust and leathery, with length and supple tannins. The oak is integrated and meshes well with the blackberry, cherry and currant, finishing in clove and toast.”
