Capo Creek Grenache Blanc 2017
Rich and well balanced with the perfect amount of acidity for pairing with high flavored foods, but not too much to make you want to grab your TUMS (T). This selection is so approachable that even the non-white lovers become fans. We like it with Mexican, especially Shrimp Diablo. But then again, we like everything with Mexican.
Arrowood Viognier, Saralee’s Vineyard, Russian River, CA$30.00
The Arrowood Viognier typically is all set aside for the wine club, so it rarely makes it out to wine stores. We have been fortunate enough to get a few bottles and we are happy to have it available to you. 100% of the Arrowood 2015 Viognier was sourced from Saralee’s Vineyard in the Russain River Valley. The vines are terraced in a concentric circle around a small hill on the famed Saralee’s Vineyard, which offers various exposures that impart a complex aromatic profile to the fruit. Vibrant floral aromatics of jasmine and orange blossoms provide lift to a core of juicy summer stone fruits, yellow peach and apricots. The palate is rich and round with flavors of honey and sweet spice. An intriguing texture and lingering acidity provide perfect balance. Enjoy with your favorite spicy Asian cuisine!
The Prisoner Combo$91.00
It’s the blend that started it all and challenged how wine should be made. The Prisoner 2016 Features enticing aromas of Bing cherry, dark chocolate, clove, and roasted fig. Persistent flavors of ripe raspberry, boysenberry, pomegranate, and vanilla linger harmoniously, for a smooth and luscious finish.
They thought if he couldn’t see the world, then he wouldn’t make his mark. But a Blindfold won’t hold him back. It just heightens his other senses. And whether they like it or not, his resilience will leave a lasting impression. Blindfold 2015 is made from Chardonnay blended with white Rhône and aromatic varieties, equally bold and intriguing—a luscious entry of toasted hazelnut and mandarin is balanced by bright acidity and minerality. The finish is rich and creamy with flavors of lemon zest and caramelized sugar.
Trecini Vermentino 2016$23.00
Vermentino (“vur-men-teeno”) is a light-bodied white wine that grows mostly in Italy on the island of Sardinia. What’s exciting about Vermentino is it can be deliciously complex in taste.
The color is bright, straw yellow with greenish hints. The bouquet is delicate and elegant, with nuances ranging from white fruit to Sardinian aromatic herbs, including rosemary and thyme. The palate is soft, fruity and lively. A glass of classic Trecini Vermentino 2016 offers up lively aromas of pear, white peach, lime and pink grapefruit with subtle notes of crushed rocks and citrus zest. On the palate, it is almost dry and somewhat creamy with flavors of grapefruit and citrus, with a crushed rocky minerality and saltiness. On the finish, there's a touch of fresh almond. It's a good wine enjoyable and easy to drink.
