WINES OF THE WEEK
MAY 22- MAY 28
Brut Rose 2012
OUR PRICE $54.99
New and limited!
The 2012 Sparkling Brut Rosé is pale salmon in color. On the nose, perfumes of fresh strawberries and warm, toasted Brioche rise from the glass. This wine is dry and mouth-watering from the first sip. Fine bubbles and crisp flavors of tart yellow cherries, green apples, and wild strawberries coat the palate, and its vibrant acidity leads to a long finish.
Juvenile Zinfandel 2015
OUR PRICE $26.99
New vintage from an iconic Zin producer!
Though the vast majority of our wines are single vineyard designates, Juvenile is actually composed of a variety of young vines that have been replanted in several of our old vine sites. We tag the vine when we replant it so as not to mix the brand new vine with its much older neighbors, then pick these young vines separately and make a distinct wine. The vines that make up Juvenile range in age from about 6-25 years, and we pull from 15 of our vineyards across California, including Hayne, Ueberroth, Pesenti, Salvador, and Vineyard 101.
Carneros Pinot Noir 2012
OUR PRICE $19.99 WINERY $35
2012 was an ideal season - no frosts, with a mild spring and summer leading into a tranquil fall. This beautiful weather resulted in superior quality fruit, with perfect depth and vibrancy.
A seductive Pinot Noir with a silky, lingering finish. It opens with an intoxicating nose of dark cherry, wild strawberry, cola, fresh roses, and cigar tobacco. A sweet, vibrant cherry palate opens to layers of dark fruits, brown spice, and cinnamon with lovely floral notes on the finish.
Rosso di Ca' Momi 2014
OUR PRICE $9.99
Outstanding value for an everyday wine!
The 2014 Rosso di Napa brings California attitude back to Napa Valley wine. This freestyle red blend rocks its own style without pretension or snobbishness. Aromas of ripe blueberries, subtle campfire smoke, and that blackberry patch down the road put summer vacation in your glass. Intense plum, blackberry pie, and toasty spice mingle on the palate, with moderate tannins providing structure and character through the lingering finish. This wine is rich but not soft, bold but not arrogant. It's Napa red, demystified.
DOMAINE DE FONSAINTE
Corbieres Gris de Gris 2016
OUR PRICE $14.99
A crystalline salmon color with superb amethyst tints. Fine separate legs run slowly down the glass. Expressive and particularly tonic, the wine immediately gives off notes of raspberry, cherry and freshly picked strawberries - followed by exotic aromas such as pineapple and mango.
