Wine Tasting List


Patricius Furmint

2015 Hungary

This dry wine clearly shows the virtue of the famous terroir of Tokaj and the indigenous grape varietal Furmint. A crisp minerality and the fruitiness of the grapes determine its essential character. A nice body and great flavors of pair, white pepper and grapefruit. This is a Very versatile food wine. Pair this Furmint with fish and poultry, turkey, and of course many vegetarian dishes.

 

Le P’Tit Barriot

2016 Languedoc-Rousillon, France

This 100% Macabeu from southwest France (though you may know the varietal more prominently as one of Cava's blending grapes) is a picture of balance and subtlety. It shows plenty of stony and smoky minerals lovingly wrapped in ripe apples, citrus peel, and accents of fennel. Bright but extremely well-integrated acidity frames the medium bodied palate, and drives it to a focused, compelling finish. While this gem is a little off the beaten path, lovers of elegant white wine must not miss it. $19.99

 

Frecciarossa Uva Rara

2013 Pavia, Lombardy, Italy

In contrast to what you usually read about this grape, the name is not referring to the rarity of it, but to the fact that there are not many grapes in a bunch. This makes it highly resistant to rot and thus very suitable for drying. Fermented with natural yeasts. The wine gets no wood to preserve its fruity character with notes of Morello cherry and ripe berries, delicate and fragrant. $19.99

 

Linen Red Blend

2014 Columbia Valley, WA (28% Malbec, 23% Petit Verdot, 18% Cab Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 8% Syrah, 5% Cab Franc)

This wine is luscious, delicious and perfect for any day ending in Y. The grapes are handpicked from some of the finest vineyards in Washington State. . Intense ruby garnet in color, teasing the nose with hints of smoke, baking spices and mouthwatering, juicy aromas leading into enticing flavors of coffee, marionberry & black cherry. $16.99

 

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 


Premium Tasting List

Domaine Henri Gouges Red Burgundy

2011 Nuits St. Georges, Burgundy, France (100% Pinot Noir)

Gregory Gouges described 2011 as a very early harvest, which of course it was, yet the domain’s starting date of September 7 was later than that of many of its neighbors. ‘We picked at the end of the vegetative cycle but did not wait until the tannins got overripe,” said Gouges, adding that the family waited longer for skin ripeness in 2010 and got some high pHs as a result.’ Gouges believes the 2011s have a balance similar to the 2007s, and will also offer early accessibility. Good bright, deep red. Strong animal reduction along with black and red fruits on the nose. Silky and supple for a Nuits villages owing to ripe acidity, with a lovely restrained sweetness to its dark fruit flavors. Finishes with suave tannins and good breadth and length. Very nicely balanced. $64.99

 

Hug Cellars Syrah

2015 “Kimsey Vineyard” Santa Barbara County, CA

Hug Cellars was established in 1994 by Augie and Raquel Hug, following a successful run as proprietors of the Central Coast Wine Room in Harmony, California. Edgar Torres joined the team in 2005 as their Assistant Winemaker. He shared their same love and passion for winemaking; Augie and Raquel took him in as their own. In 2015, Augie and Raquel decided to move on from the wine industry. It seemed fitting for Edgar to take over and continue to share their vision. Hug Cellars is dedicated to producing wine with uncompromising quality.  $49.99

 

Acumen Mountainside Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 Atlas Peak, Napa Valley, CA

This full-bodied wine opens with aromas of violets, lavender, fresh rosemary, and espresso. On the palate we find flavors of black cherries, red plums, mountain blueberries, mission figs, and chocolate covered orange peel with sweet clay, freshly turned earth, and pencil shavings giving way to ripe, mouth-coating tannins on the long and powerful finish. An elegant and well-balanced combination of fruit, tannic structure, and acidity, this is our finest Mountainside Cabernet Sauvignon to date. 93 Points Wine Enthusiast. $61.99
