Wine Tasting List

Faire La Fete Brut Cremant

NV Limoux, France

Beautiful golden color with vibrant aromas. On the palate, baked apple, white cherry and lemon meringue. This traditional method sparkling wine is a real bargain at $15.99!


“Original Sin” Sauvignon Blanc

2015 South Coast, South Africa (91% Sauvignon Blanc, 9% Semillon)

The Sauvignon was fermented in stainless steel. The Semillon was fermented in French oak barriques. After blending, it went through 6 months lees ageing in tank. Tropical fruit aromatics with some minerality, on the palate with a hint of lemongrass. Zesty and bright acidity! $13.99


Koehler Grenache

2013 Santa Ynez Valley, CA

Look out for Colin Murphy, who was named winemaker at this estate after years working for regional legends Bruno d’Alfonso and Kris Curran. This bottling shows dark strawberry, incense, sandalwood, cola, figs, pepper and soy on the pretty yet complex nose. There is lots of intrigue to the palate too, where black plum comes together with chamomile, Earl Grey tea and lavender. Wine Enthusiast Top 100 (#49) $26.99


Sleeping Indian Vineyard Merlot

2013 Fallbrook, CA

This 2013 Merlot is floral with well-balanced red fruit and a hint of oak. Vanilla, clove, tobacco, red fruit, black cherry and a lingering finish that will pair well with just about anything. The mid-range tannins and acid make this a very approachable wine. Drink now or within the next 3-5 years. Yum! $28.99


Truth Serum Red Blend

2012 Central Coast, CA

A fun, cheeky, dark, juicy field blend from the gang at DeRose. There's a little bit of everything in this one including their estate-grown 100+ year-old vine Zin and Negrette. At its price the wine way over-delivers vis-a-vis the competition. Delicious. If you like The Prisoner, you will like this wine! $16.99 


Beer Tasting List (available indiscriminately) 

Three Weav3ers Seafarer

 Inglewood, CA

Channeling the traditional light hybrid ale from Koln, Seafarer is made with German Pilsner malt and noble hop varieties. Our crisp, pale Kolsch is lively, refreshing and a perfect partner for the everyday journey that is life! $9.99


Telegraph Brewing Company Obscura Vulpine

 Santa Barbara, CA

The word vulpine means "like a fox." Here, we’re referring to the deep, reddish hues of Obscura Vulpine, a beer brewed especially for barrel aging. What goes into the wood as rich, malty, and ruby-colored, comes out a complex, sour, garnet ale. With notes of dried tart cherries, red currants, and oak, this is a beer as artful as our favorite forest canine. $15.99


Fort Point Beer Co Manzanita

San Francisco, CA

Manzanita is a deep ruby colored ale with strikingly complex campfire smoke and firewood aromas. Beechwood smoked malt contributes an upfront roastiness while charred manzanita branches add hints of perfume and a slightly tannic woody finish. $9.99


El Segundo Brewing Company “The Pine Tar Incident”

 El Segundo, CA

Whiffs of pine and spruce lead you in to the glass, where you find bitter cocoa and candied oranges. A touch of roast permeates throughout but the hop expression wins over in the end. Dry and lively but with a creamy feel. Enough hops to be under protest, but we rule it a home run! $9.99


Premium Tasting List

Cordant Central Coast Pinot Noir

2014 Santa Lucia Highlands, CA

Aromas of strawberry, cranberry, and cedar box with hints of sweet earthiness. Red fruit is evident at the first sip, then enhanced by its creamy texture. Its earthy characteristics follow through to its long, distinct finish. Make no mistake about it, this is a masculine style of Pinot, that shows a finesse and balance that is unusual for a Pinot this big. Our Central Coast Pinot Noir grapes hail from the mighty Santa Lucia Highlands. They were hand-picked at optimum ripeness and received at the winery while still cold. We destemmed 80% of the fruit, leaving 20% as whole clusters providing for additional complexity in the resulting wine. The juice was cold soaked for 5 days and pumped over gently but religiously during that process. We allowed fermentation to begin spontaneously and introduced yeast at a one-third depletion of sugar to assure it finished fermentation properly. The wine was pressed straight to barrel where it was never racked, and topped at least once a month. Aged in 50% new french oak for 18 months. $44.99


Robert Foley Merlot

2011 Napa Valley, CA

A Merlot for Cabernet lovers – very dark ruby in color, the ripeness follows with aromas of candied fruit, black cherry and dark currant with a hint of mocha and espresso. The rich flavorful middle is framed by perfectly balanced natural acidity combining mouth-coating viscosity and a long lively finish. This wine's strong structure and spice is from our own Howell Mountain fruit, while its round femininity comes from Calistoga to create a perfect textural balance. Robert (Bob) Foley began his wine making career in the Napa Valley in 1977, working at a number of highly regarded wineries including the famous Pride Mountain Vineyards, where he spent 15 years as founding winemaker. During this period he also created the highly acclaimed Switchback Ridge, Hourglass, Paloma, School House, and Engel Family wines. He now focuses on Robert Foley Vineyards and Switchback Ridge wines, but also creates some of the offerings from Dos Lagos Vineyards, Engel Family, and Padis Vineyards in the Napa Valley. $59.99


“The Hunter” Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 “Stagecoach Vineyard”, Napa Valley, CA (95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3.25% Petit Verdot, 1.75% Malbec)

This Cabernet has a bold and muscular foundation crafted in a luscious and velvety style. A wine with the mythic quality “harmony”. Low yields and very small production make this bottle a rare find indeed! We’ll keep this short and sweet and let the wine do the talking……. $74.99
