Wine of the Week

 

New
Vina Robles
​Sauvignon
Blanc


IMG_20170520_170635192

One of our newest, latest Sauvignon Blancs, this Vina Robles Winery is from the new appellation in California - Paso Robles.  I say new as in , they have been around for years.  But, this area is just turning out spectacular wines in the last 20 years.
 This Sauvignon Blanc is from their Jardine Vineyard and was harvested early in the 2016 harvest. This wine is really different. It has the kiwi hint in the body , but it finishes with a peachy end. 
A great new direction in California Sauvignon Blancs.
 

$18.00 per bottle

Marc Cellars
Cabernet Sauvignon
IMG_20170506_124738009

We compared this Cabernet to the Bordeaux below only to show you how well our wines have progressed in just 50 years. We leared how to make Cabernet from the vintners in Bordeaux. This is as classic example of a red wine with huge tones of berries, butterscotch and a fine dap of oak in the finish.

$25.00

This Crement is made the same way that Champagne is made- the second fermentation takes place in each bottle.  Made form 100% Pinot Noir, flavors of strawberry and wild cherry blend with a touch of richness to make the perfect pair wine for a fruit based dessert plate.
 $29.00    #86101

New Winery At Hennessy's
Marc Cellars
Pinot Gris

We have predicted that Pinot Grigio will be the next hot white grape. Why not? This Marc Cellars is a great example of how a Pinot Griogio should be made. Starting with a hint of grapefruit in the bouquet, there is a tiny dash of cinnamon spice in the middle.  And, it must end bone dry. Great with all pasta dishes.

$14.00    #884000

2009 Leslie Hennessy Pinot Noir

 

lh



This is the first Pinot Noir release of wine veteran

and author Leslie Hennessy. "I had been plodding

through Northern California wine country for months

looking for my style of Pinot Noir when I ran across these

two remarkable vineyards. The first vineyard was too tannic

but had a great banana, blackberry, bing cherry bouquet

with a graham cracker finish. The second vineyard had just

the perfect 'persistence' that when these two are blended

together it gives this wine a great rich middle with the fruit

combination."

$27.50

Rare Wines

Matanzas Creek
2007 Merlot
Bennett Valley, Sonoma County, California

 

From the McKiver Family of Sonoma, this was the 'Duckhorn of Sonoma' .  Once Duckhorn established the Merlot grape
(made in Napa), Matanzas Creek followed suit and proved you can achieve as much success from Sonoma Merlot grapes.  Still very drinkable, this older bottle will surprise everyone as to how well it has held up.
