The Wines!!
Laxas Rias Baixas Albarhino $22.99
Clear, brilliant wine, strawyellow colored with green nuances. An intense aroma on the nose, perfectly combining the fruity and floral notes, particularly apple and stoned fruit(apricot).Freshness on the palate typical of Albario, with a touch of acidityperfectly balanced with the structure and body of this wine. Meaty, sweet with a glyceric finish.

Albert Bichot Macon-Villages Chardonnay $21.99
This Mâcon Villages has a lovely pale straw yellow robe. The nose exhales beautiful acacia and honeysuckle floral notes on a slightly mineral background. The mouth is lively, fruity and floral with a refreshing finale. With a meal, this white Mâcon village will beautifully match shellfish, seafood and white meats. Savor it with scallops with hazelnut, creamed chicken or with stuffed peppers. As for cheese, we suggest dry cheese such as gruyere or goudas.
Equally good with fruit or chocolate-based desserts.

Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara $29.99
Strawberries and blackberries aromas slowly rise out of the glass. Overtime, more of the anise and clove will mix with these other aromas. Currently, the wine is young with mouth filling intensity and suppleness. Complexity will increase as the wine ages, but this wine should stay “fresh” for 6 or 7 years.  Like all Au Bon Climat wines, this is a food wine. In its youth, match this wine with lamb or dried meats. After a few years, as the flavors coalesce, it will pair better with salmon or mild red sauce with pasta. The winemakers have enjoyed this wine with many food choices from spicy Indian dishes to all-American sandwiches, and the wine worked well with most anything. The possible food pairings are almost endless.

Lapis Luna Zinfandel $13.99
Rich, dark, and enticing.
The aromatics deliver savory black pepper blended with dark floral aroma.
Dark and decadent blueberry and blackberry cobbler.
The finish is smooth, long, and juicy.  
80% Zinfandel and 20% Sangiovese blend.
