June Staff Pick 2022

True Colors Cava $17

Chardonnay, Macabeo, Xarel-lo, Perellada. With notes of bright lemon and fresh pastries, this Spanish Cava has a creamy, lingering finish. A sparkly choice for light fare, its fine bubbles and minerality pairs well with lean fish, shellfish and cured meat.

Nortico Alvarinho $15

Creamy citrus oil, lime and yellow apple notes are nicely spiced and detailed with saline mineral and floral underpinnings through the long finish.

Bonny Doon Cigare Orange $16

50% Grenache Gris, 50% Grenache Blanc. Not made from oranges or cigars, this wine obtains its orange color from extended contact with the grape skins. Aromas of fresh apricot, citrus, & bergamot. Bright, fresh palate with peach, apricot, and citrus peel. Textured & vibrant.

Ermengaud Faugeres Rose $18

A beautiful rose petal robe. The nose is elegant and expressive with floral notes first (orange blossom, peaches), then spicy marks (ginger, white pepper). This is an invitation to springtime. On the palate, this rosé wine is delicate.

Domaine L’Herbe Sainte Cabernet Sauvignon $13

A very pleasant, harmonious, and yet characterful wine with the rich variety of aromas of the Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. Excellent concentrated and ripe fruit flavors on the nose and palate, with a tasty, lingering finish of cassis, chocolate, and cherries. A wine that is a pleasure to drink and versatile.

Gentle Giant Red Blend $20

5 red varietals that have been meticulously blended and aged to create the 2017 vintage of our mighty Gentle Giant. Black cherry aromas wrapped in warm spices and tobacco leaves feature in our multilayered deep ruby gem. This vintage contains the sophistication of an older wine accompanied by a complex and fine tannin structure which is our "not so secret" secret ingredient to our super age-able wines.
