"..... I was so excited to get this variety in the store....."
Ahhhhh Bonarda also known as Charbona, Douce Noir, and Corbeau. It's usually a blending grape, but on its own is absolutely beautiful! We just got a beautiful Bonarda from Argentina! So much upfront fruit, blueberries, cherries, a hint of cassis, a little fig and always smooth. I've never had a Bonarda that I didn't go gaga for! It's very easy on your Palette; medium bodied, and (in my opinion) can be compared to Italy's Dolcetto But with a bit more cassis, and warm brooding fruit.

I was so excited to get this variety in the store; I've been a fan for quite some time. I couldn’t wait to get this baby home and crack it open! Of which I did of course with some bbq'd Pork chops Perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please try this beautiful versatile grape! It will be consumed before you know it!

Take it from me......."

"..... Gorgeous Rose French Spritzer....."
"It is warm here and if you have a hankering for something light but refreshing, something flavorful but not over done...if you don't feel like a cocktail and for sure, a big Chardonnay won't do!

Here is what we have for you!

This gorgeous Rose French Spritzer hits the spot...I was fascinated by the light touch it had but loaded with flavor...AND NOT SWEET! Just the right amount of crispness.

Get them before it’s hot...and get them while they are HOT!"

"As the name suggest this wine may be unparallel when it comes to Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. While most of these wines have become super tart pungent monsters, Unparralleled has a pleasant creaminess and lemon sherbet like character. This is an invigorating Sauvignon Blanc, dry and refreshing with great intensity and a great backbone of acidity. There is a pleasant touch of silkiness with great concentration, finishing with wonderful length. I wish more Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs tasted like this. I will most certainly be drinking this all summer."

91 point Classic Napa Chardonnay
“Lemon curd and pear aromas follow through to full body, slightly oily texture but lots of intense dried lime and apple character. Bigger, denser style. Old Napa. Fun. Drink now.”

“Rich, ripe and oaky, this full-bodied wine has loads of sweet blackberry and black cherry ­flavors, with generous doses of oak spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, wood smoke and dark chocolate. It’s bold but complex and will be a lot of fun to drink with red meat. Editor’s Choice!”

"..... downright delicious....."
..... 92 points too!!
“Argentine malbec is unlike any other malbec, and the 2014 Gascon Reserva is more unlike other malbecs than most. With layered black fruits dominant, this is a dense wine that exhibits a fair amount of heft without being out of balance. But its greatest appeal is the note of white pepper on the nose and on the palate, an exotic twist that is not only aromatically inviting but downright delicious.”
