Piquito Jumilla Monastrell - $17

100% Monastrell (Mourvedre) of Spain. There is so much variety to be had from this
wonderful grape, and this one knows how to show deep dark nuanced flavors without feeling
like you’re drinking a brick. Black cherry and licorice do a passionate tango from start to finish,
with hints of slight dusty spice and leather to make sure you know what grape it is. The palate,
however shows velvety tannins and a medium-bodied texture that makes this the best of both
worlds, with baking spice and slight chocolate from the oak making this a cheerful drinker you can really think about if you wanted to.

Piteira Alentejo Premium Red - $14

Made from Alicante Bouschet, Alfrocheiro Preto, Moreto, Trincadeira, Alentejo, Portugal.
This extraordinary red for the price has the ability to have richness and depth, but somehow
manages to maintain fruity freshness at the same time. Wonderful layers of blackberry lay a
foundation for which subtle violet and savory balsamic notes play on top. Full of rich fruit on the
palate combines with smooth texture and silky tannins together with even more red and black
fruit flavors. Portuguese wine broadly produces stunning wines at even more stunning
affordable price-points, and we are more than happy to reap the delicious benefits.

Vale de Fornos Tejo Red Blend - $14

100% Aligote Grape from Burgundy, Eastern France. As unknown and underrated as it is
beautifully delicious, welcome to the other white grape of Burgundy. Stunning elegance and
finesse streak this Alpine prairie with lime blossom, verbena, and white rose. The palate brings
the balance and uniqueness of this wine to 11 with saline acidity and fruitiness reminiscent of
salted caramel green apples, combined with soft and subtle Burgundian brilliance.

Foresta Tempranillo Rose - $13

Made from the red Tempranillo grape from Central Spain. Great example of how various
rose can be based on the grape. The normal aromas of red fruit is there, with subtle hints of
blackberry and violet grazing the back of your mind. Fresh and elegant, the acidity combined
with a drive of minerality to bring the whole thing together makes this even more complex and
interesting, especially considering your first instinct will be to hook this bottle up to an I.V. from how drinkable it is.

Amo.te Vinho Verde - $12

Made from indigenous grapes of Northern Portugal. If you don’t know what this wine is,
you’re about to fall in love, and if you do know what V.V. is, you just found your new love affair.
Fresh cut white flowers and soft lemon-lime citrus notes dance out of the glass with help of the
effervescence natural in the wine. The palate is ultra bright, gorgeously refreshing, and playfully
fruity to the max. This wine has that typical lightness and harmony of Vinho Verde that will make you want to swim in it!

Morgadio da Andorinha Alvarinho Reserva - $16

Made from the Alvarinho Grape from Northern Portugal, this is a very different wine from the
flagship party wine we all know so well. Citrus and underripe tropical fruit, combined with rock-
solid stony minerality on the nose is amplified further on the palate, with a lush mouthfeel that is
only briefly sensed before the acidity of this wine takes it to the moon. This is a beautiful expression of the purity of this grape.
