Chalk Hill Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2013
Our 2013 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is light golden in color and displays expressive fruit aromas of yellow apple, lemon curd and a nice minerality. The bouquet is further complexed by toasted bread, marzipan, and crème brulee with an oak finish. This Chardonnay is quite elegant with its mineral style, akin to a White Burgundy on steroids! Fruit forward and a rich textural body make this complex wine a real crowd pleaser and the fruit is reined in by good acidity and lemon zest.

Chateau Pre Du Roc Bordeaux 2014 BottleLocated in the heart of Bordeaux, the Pre du Roc estate has been run by the Requier family for three generations. The wine, a 60/40 blend of Cabernet and Merlot, shows a nice amount of acidity up front with notes of cherry, cinnamon, savory herbs and a hint of leather. It is crafted in a lighter style, which makes it extremely versatile in terms of food pairings, and at its price point it is a terrific value as well.
Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell Silver Label 2014Deep purple/black color. Explosive aromas of ripe currant, red berries and smoked notes.

Broken Earth Quadrant Platinum BDX Bordeaux Blend 2010This Bordeaux style blend offers ripe fruit with a luxurious texture. The components of this wine each offer their best assets and showcase beautifully together. The Merlot base creates the foundation for its medium body that lends itself nicely to a multitude of food pairings.

Dive deeper into the unending layers of this wine and you'll find the Petit Verdot offers you the velvet soft tannins you're looking for. Beyond that, you'll notice the Petite Sirah, though only a small percentage of this wine, is the powerhouse that gives this blend its gorgeous garnet color and long lasting finish. As always, our wines are meant to be shared with good food and great friends. Enjoy!
Nativ Irpinia Aglianico 2013Aglianico from Campania is sometimes called 'the Barolo of the South', not because it tastes like Barolo but because it is ageworthy and regal like Barolo. Brought to the region by the Greeks as far back as 800 BC: the name comes from the Greek Ellenico. Aglianico is deep, intense ruby purple in color. This hearty red wine has rich aromas of black fruit such as blackcurrants and blackberries along with spicy notes of cocoa and smoke. The tannins are ripe, soft and make for a long, full-bodied texture yet balanced by good acidity which gives it a true sense of finesse. This robust red is a perfect match with grilled or braised red meat, osso buco, hearty legume-based soups and medium-aged herbed cheeses.
Le Caniette Morellone Rosso Piceno 2008The great painter Michelangelo gave the name morellone to his darkest red color and it is only fitting that this name be applied to this intense, almost impenetrable, ruby red wine. A blend of Montepulciano (70%) and Sangiovese (30%), Morellone displays an intense bouquet of forest berry fruit along with vegetal notes and spice. The Fruit is backed by some acidity and well balanced with smooth tannins on the finish. Pairs well with rich meals, grilled or stewed red meats, and aged cheeses.
Domaine de L'Olivier Chardonnay 2015Color: Medium straw. Body: Medium bodied. Food Pairing: Chicken, shellfish, salads, fusion cuisine, mild cheeses.
Poggiobello Friuli Colli Orientali Friulano 2012More than any other, this wine truly expresses the territory for which it was named. In fact, in Friuli, 'the Friuliano' (which used to be called Tocai) is practically a synonym for white wine. Previously known as 'Savignonassa', due to its similarities to Sauvignon, it is destined to become standard bearer for enology in Friuli.
