The Wines!!
MURALHAS DE MONCAO VINHO VERDE $14.99
The Vinho Verde region in northern Portugal has become known for slightly fizzy, fruity whites.
This delicious wine is a little different. Still easy-going and refreshing, it offers no fizziness and a bit more crisp acidity.
A high-quality wine for the price, you?ll find pronounced notes of stone fruit with hints of lemon zest.


GAVALAS SANTORINi $32.99 
Aromas of citrus, lemon, pear and peach accompany the typical saltiness and minerality of Assyrtiko.
Full body with high acidity and long aftertaste.


CERRO CHAPEU 1752 GRAN TRADICION $17.99
Cabernet Sauvignon-Tannat-Arinarnoa
Cerro Chapeu is located on the formation of soils called Batovi dorado,
where red and deep sandy soils of low fertility are characteristic, considered to be among the oldest in South America.
This cut is produced from concentrated grapes from the best vineyards in Cerro Chapeu.
Harvested by hand at optimal maturity and with very low yields of less than 50 Hl per hectare, thus obtaining a great concentration of varietal character.


BOUTARI NAOUSSA RED $23.99
Boutari’s basic Naoussa is a bargain. It’s lean and elegant, with, tangy, spicy plum-skin flavors and notes of fresh earth adding breadth.
The tannins feel long and buffed, firm enough to allow this to age well for another five to ten years in the cellar,
but fine enough to enjoy the wine now, with roast leg of lamb.


NONA PETIT PRIORAT RED $27.99 
75% Grenache, 10% Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah  
From two vineyards in the Vilella Alta of Spain's Priorat region.  
Aged 10 months in French Allier oak.  Cherry color with purple shades, an intense bouquet of strawberries and red currant. 
Slightly spicy with some toast and smoky hints, full bodied and fresh with ripe tannins and a sweetly herbal finish.  



PACHECA 10 YEAR TAWNY PORT $34.99
This 10 Year Tawny Port is a field blend coming in with 103 grams of residual sugar.
It was bottled in July 2020 with a bar-top cork.
Lovely and reasonably priced, this has an understated feel to it but everything you want in terms of classic flavors and aromatics.
