Upcoming Tasting: Dec 9th, 1-4pm
Bodkin Winery Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc
Made by Chris Christensen, a history buff who made his mark releasing the very first Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc in the US. This Cuvée is a blend of two sustainably farmed vineyards in Lake County, California and expresses lively notes of pineapple, guava & lemon-lime zippiness. With racing, flirty bubbles this sparkling Sauv Blanc is utterly invigorating!
Clara Vie Sparkling Brut Rosé
One of our favorite sparkling wines! Clara Vie Brut Rose, Cremant de Limoux comes to us from old vines growing close to the Mediterrean Sea in the Southwest region of France. A blend of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Mauzac, and Pinot Noir we adore Clara Vie's graceful bubbles, vibrant red fruit notes and lush floral aromas. On the palate, Clara Vie is pleasing: round and pure in its fruit, with a full and cleansing finish.
Clara Vie Brut Rose is a custom cuvee between Importer Jean-Philippe Bourgeois and Francoise Antech. For over five centuries, the winery family has tamed this magical terroir to make fine sparkling wines. The secret of the wine's character lies in the wise combination of Limoux’s three terroirs, which form the backbone of their cuvées: freshness from the Pyrenees, minerality from the ocean and roundness from the Mediterranean. In the family vineyard, they try out new methods on their old vinestocks on the appellation’s highest land — the stony, south-facing hillsides nearly 400m above sea level opposite the Pyrenees.
Sheild Sauvignon Blanc
Trudy is the proud winemaker and now the owner of her own winery in Nelson, New Zealand. She started her career in medical microbiology before returning to university to complete her post-grad degree in wine science. For over 20 years Trudy has been making wine in New Zealand. She is now releasing her wines under her own name. When she is not in the cellar she loves sailing, biking around her seaside town, indulging in backyard gardening and cooking. Where is Nelson, New Zealand? Well, it's centered on the northern tip of the South Island, approximately 75 miles west (slightly north) of Marlborough (about 2 hours drive). The charming seaside town of Nelson makes up just 3% of all New Zealand wine production, so it's small but perfectly formed for viticulture.
In this Sauvignon Blanc; look forward to graceful notes of lemon - lime mousse, smooth citrus zest, and a silky minerality on the finish
Midnight Cellars Chardonnay
The cooler Westside climate on the Midnight vineyard and wonderfully acidic soils lend divine growing conditions that showcase the Chardonnay varietal in a clean style. This Chardonnay goes through only 20% malolactic fermentation and is barrel aged in primarily neutral French oak to feature the grape and terroir of their vineyard. This Chardonnay does not have the overt “buttery or oaky” characteristics of other styles, it is a crisp, clean style.
Green apple and mineral aromas coupled with a delicate balance of vanilla from the subtle oak. The palate is moderately creamy with notes of brioche and Asian pear. A crisp and refreshing finish with a well-balanced liveliness that entices you to enjoy another sip.
De Pascona Maria Ganxa Carignan
“Maria is more than a story, it's a legend. She's a fictional character that never existed, it was created by our grandmothers to be careful not to hurt ourselves inside the house...They painted us an old witch who was scary and had a hand with a hook, to grab the children quickly, and that's why the name Maria Hook, referring to her hook!”~ Toni Ripoll, winemaker
Pascona is a winery spanning seven generations of winemakers in Catalonia’s Montsant DO. The winery and 50 acres of vines are located right outside the town of Falset, and you’re likely to see everyone from the grandparents to the grandchildren either in the winery, the vineyard, or the family restaurant down the road. The wines of Pascona are handmade from start to finish; following biodynamic, artisanal and natural practices in both the winery and vineyard.
This wine is dedicated to a village legend, Maria Ganxa. From a witch who lived inside the houses, and who appeared in the dangerous places of the house, she served to prevent domestic accidents of children. Growing up, the winemaker Toni was told to avoid Maria Ganxa - and as a winemaker he was given similar advice to the grape Carignan. As he grew into adulthood, his fear of both subsided and he is now on a mission to prove that there is a fresh side to Carignan, captured in this wine. 100% Carinyena from Montsant
Aromas of wild roses, red fruits, turned earth, wild grass and Provencal herbs. On the palate; fresh fruit notes and perky cherry through the finish. Hand Harvested | Whole Berry & Spontaneous Fermentation | Native Yeast
Bellula Winery Pinot Noir
Bellula aims at expressing all the Languedoc has to share: Passion, know-how, and joie de vivre. Handcrafted wines, to be enjoyed every day with or without food, for constant gratification at a very reasonable price!
An intense red color and a nose packed with red fruits and spices, followed by a palate that elevates the aromas while keeping them balanced, elegant, and smooth. Silky notes of cherry and raspberry glide through the finish. Round, very fruit-forward, this modern French Pinot Noir can be enjoyed with your everyday meals or by itself.
Lafken Winery Carmenere
The vineyards grow on a unique terrace over the Maipo River at 650 meters above sea level, in the Los Morros area, at the foothills of Andes Mountain. The soils in this region consist of a geological formation of colluvial and alluvial sediment. The pebbles provide the necessary porosity for the good development at the depth of the roots of the vines. With a semi-arid Mediterranean climate, high exposure to sunlight and the influence of the winds that come down the Maipo River Valley from the Andes mountains, the vines are kept aerated by natural cooling at and achieve optimal ripening. A natural environment for grape growing that leads to beautiful wines.
Aromas of rosehip, white plums, peach, lychee and a hint of chocolate. Palate loaded with layers: strawberries and raspberries, hints of coffee, pepper, fine and soft tannins, solid acidity and lush fruit through the finish.
Enjoy this Carmenere with lamb ragout, roast duck, spicy Szechwan dishes or just with good company.
Midnight Cellars Mare Nectaris Reserve
Midnight Cellars was the 29th established winery in Paso Robles and is the happy neighbor of many notable vineyards. Their sub AVA, known as the Willow Creek District, has warm days and cool maritime influenced nights, making it a prime growing location. "Mare Nectaris" is the name of a lunar ocean/crater. It is Latin meaning "sea of nectar." Thousands of years ago, wine was referred to as "the nectar of the gods." It was believed that fine wines were worthy of being served to deities. The Hartenberger family still believes in this notion. The family expects you will find this bottle of Mare Nectaris worthy of being served to your most honored guests.
Elegant aromas of violet, soft smoke, leather, black fruit, and earth. The mouthfeel is rich and full, featuring complex flavors of ripe plum, spice, clove and black cherry all seamlessly integrated with a heavenly finish that fades into the next sip.
