Capo Creek Grenache Blanc 2018
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.

Duckhorn Merlot 2017, Napa Valley$52.00
The 2017 growing season yielded a beautifully complex expression of Napa Valley Merlot, with inviting aromas of fresh black raspberry, vanilla, tea leaves, pie crust and licorice. On the palate, luxurious red-fruit flavors of strawberry, plum, Bing cherry and loganberry are supported by silky tannins and a bright, mouthwatering acidity that carries the wine to a lingering finish, with hints of maple, cedar and sweet spice. 77% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, .5% Malbec, .5 % Petit Verdot
Rabble Sauvignon Blanc 2019$24.00
The Rabble Sauvignon Blanc 2019 is one of their single varietal wines; uncorrupted and pure. The Rabble labels are renditions of historical wood block prints from the Nuremberg Chronicle (late 1400’s), textured and tactile, depicting nature’s wrath. Nature is ruthless when it goes ignored. This label illustrates the Pegasus being unchained! Bright and juicy flavors of tangerine, gooseberry and kiwi, all twine together and dance across the palate. A touch grassy with great minerality. The natural crisp and clean acidity acts as the backbone and gives the wine a cheerful liveliness. Zesty and delicious.
Woodenhead Zinfandel 2017, Guido Venturi Vineyard, Mendocino County, USA$38.00
The winemaking at Woodenhead is pure and simple. Their wine is handcrafted from a hard labor of love in tune to the natural rhythm of the land, the water, the air, and the seasons. No mechanical pumping is employed. Inoculated yeast and malolactic cultures, hand punching, basket pressing, French oak, and California fruit is what you get. Small and unique lots are their goal, ultra premium wine is the result. Dark, dense, ruby red in color. Bouquet of brandied cherries, raspberries, plums, vine bark, violets and a prune drying shed. Really something as only very old vines can be. Flavors of really ripe boysenberries, red plums, brown sugar and some spice. Full, round and robust. Medium tannins, with a good acidity to balance this wine. A mouthful. Powerful with a big statement but not hot. Will cellar many years given the pH and acidity levels. Amazing that at this stage of the vineyards’ life it has so much to give fruit wise. Perhaps the care of the grower’s hand is the magic. Wood fired anything, chicken, beef, pork or lamb. Simply an awesome Zinfandel. Enjoy it you Zin Dogs!
80+ year old vines!
