Featured Selections for January 2019
Bellingham Chenin Blanc Old Vine 2016, South Africa
Golden hued and full bodied, with melon, lush pear, honeysuckle and spicy baked apple aromas. This wine is a great example of the harmonious balance which can be achieved between fruit and delicate oak/vanilla flavors, as they combine to form complex flavors with rich texture to enhance even spicy and full-flavored meals.
Domaine de la Damase Grenache 2017, Rhone Valley
Organically farmed. Alluvial terrace overlaid with chalky gravel and blue clay. Fermentation with natural yeasts in concrete tanks. 100% whole cluster. No fining or filtering before bottling. It is intended to be a simple, straight-forward, fruit-forward and Earth-forward Southern Rhone Valley Grenache.
Gibbs Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Napa Valley, California
With small additions of Petit Verdot and Merlot, this is a robust, full-bodied and affordable red that’s thickly tannic at first before allowing a defined sense of vanilla, oak, and black cherry to speak in unison.
Doktor Mango Moscato NV, Italy
A delicious blend of Italian Moscato and fresh mango. A natural infusion of mango inside the wine develops deep tropical notes balanced by a crisp acidity and natural sweetness.
