Thanksgiving – 2020

Rivarose Brut $16 **
A lovely sparkling Rosé blend of Syrah and Grenache grapes from southern France. Crisp and refreshing with notes of field strawberries and spice.

Big Salt white blend $20 **
Roughly half and half Riesling and Gewürztraminer, with small amounts of Muscat and other grapes. Fleshy and nicely textured, floral orange aromas lead into a saline wine with a mix of cucumber, apple, and green melon flavors.

Chateau La Tour de Beraud blanc $14 **
This wine’s flavors are equally juicy, with notes of yellow plum, and floral, featuring honeysuckle notes, with a long and fresh finish. It is delicate and lively.

Ojai Puerta Del Mar Pinot Noir $45 now $29 **
The salty, mineral-laced 2017 Pinot Noir Puerta Del Mar offers a distinct Burgundian-style in its forest floor, savory red fruits, moss, river rock, and earth. Fresh and lively on the palate, it stays balanced, layered, and silky.

Santa Julia “El Burro” Malbec $20 **
No sulfites are added, wild yeasts initiate spontaneous fermentation, and the wine is bottled unfiltered. Aromas include plum and cherry, with a full-bodied palate

A wine with the backbone of granite minerality, with the aromas dominated by fruits and flowers, including hints of lime and orange with the essential oils of their skins. The palate has volume and vibrant acidity enhancing the length .

Pendroncelli Friends white blend $14
Very fragrant! Passion fruit with floral notes of roses and honey spice. Flavors of tropical fruit, rich honey and a hint of grassiness follows. The refreshing finish is framed by mild acidity.

This Oregon Pinot Gris has aromas of citrus, fresh peach blossoms, and melon. The wine opens with bright acidity followed by notes of key lime and melon on the mid-palate, with the light sweetness of stone fruit on the finish.

A rich, elegant style, barrel fermented and aged. The crisp, zesty tangerine finish creates a very food friendly wine.

Approachable, appealing, and juicy in style with lifted red berry fruits and a hint of spice. The palate is bright with bramble, cherry fruit and gently rounded tannins. Nicely-balanced with a long finish.

Georg Albrecht Dornfelder $17
A fully ripe, delicious red wine from up north in Germany. This wine is simply delicious – not heavy but full of intense cherry and wild berry flavor. It’s comparable in style to a medium-bodied Burgundy, with a nice touch of earthiness.

Barone Cornacchia Cassanova Montepulciano d’Abruzzo $14
Made with organic grapes, this straightforward wine opens with plum aromas and a whiff of cinnamon. The round easygoing palate doles out black cherry and a hint of cake spice accompanied by mellow tannins.

Domaine Pelaquie Cotes Du Rhone $16
Intense and brilliant purple red color. Cocoa notes, ripe fruits, and licorice scent. The mouth-feel is long and generous with silky tannins.

Mommessin Beaujolais $25
The granite soils of this great vineyard give intense minerality and structure to this wine.  Black and jammy red fruits shine through with hints of floral undertones, built by bright acidity and structured tannins.  This will develop into a rich wine, concentrated while always have a fresh edge

 Fer de Soif Marcillac Mansois $22
The small appellation of Marcillac lies in the western foothills of France’s central mountains, the Massif Central. This wine is all about stalky red fruits, with a crisp texture and a smoky character. The wine should be drunk young.
