Friday, August 23rd, 5 to 8pm

Featured Wines

2018 Gurrieri, “Donna Grazia” Vino  Bianco, Sicily, Italy
Regularly $21.99, Tasting Price $18.69
The only white Nero d’Avola/Frappato blend in Sicily this wine has tremendous minerality with a Vouvray- like feel. A truly unique wine from this family run farm.

2018 Leonardo Bussoletti, “05035” Umbria Bianco, Umbria, Italy
Regularly $17.99, Tasting Price $15.29
A blend of Umbria’s hottest grape varietal: Trebbiano Spoletino, and Grechetto, commonly used in the wines of Orvieto. This wine is all about texture and mouthfeel, with plenty of yellow fruit and flowers, and a wonderful fresh finish to wash it all away.

2018 Gurrieri, Vittoria Frappato, Sicily, Italy
Regularly $19.99, Tasting Price $16.99
Summer in a glass. Fresh, with plenty of violets and flowers to go along with some freshly crushed red fruit. This wine has zippy acidity as well being planted on sandy soils. A wonderful wine to chill down in the fridge on a hot night and enjoy throughout a meal.

2015 Negro Lorenzo, Langhe Nebbiolo, Piedmont, Italy
Regularly $21.99, Tasting Price $18.69
From the sandy soils of the Langhe come some of the best value wines in Piedmont. This Nebbiolo has an earthy tannic edge that one expects while showing off the more feminine side of the grape with a lovely floral bouquet.

2013 Negro Lorenzo, “La Nanda” Barbera d’Alba Superiore, Piedmont, Italy
Regularly $22.99, Tasting Price $19.54
Named for the winemakers mother this wine is proof that great Barbera can easily age 5-10 years. This still has firm acidity and plenty of bite with its piercing red fruit. The wine is oh so smooth with lovely structure from close to 2 years in barrel.

 

West Coast Struttin’ with John Mooradian
Saturday, August 24th, 4 to 7pm

Featured Wines

2018 Rutherford Ranch, Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley, California
Regularly $15.99, Tasting Price $13.59
Juicy and lush, this wine is bursting with tropical notes of citrus, guava, and peach with just a hint of creaminess. With subtle hints of mineral and saline notes, this wine is crisp and clean on the finish.

2017 Stoller Family Estate, Chardonnay, Dundee Hills, Oregon
Regularly $16.99, Tasting Price $14.44
A domestic Chardonnay with its heart in Chablis! Crisp and mineral-driven, this Chardonnay is produced entirely without any oak aging so as to better preserve its mineral backbone and racy acidity. Flavors and aromas of honeydew melon, citrus zest, and apple skin give this wine a delightful thirst-quenching quality.

2017 Anne Amie, Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Regularly $22.99, Tasting Price $19.54
Hand-picked and hand-sorted, Anne Amie’s Pinot Noir is a study in elegance. Notes of red cherry, strawberry, and fig intermingle with subtle notes of cardamom, cassis and cola in a very fresh and clean style. 10 months in French oak gives the wine a lovely roundness to its mouthfeel and finish.

2017 Neyers, Zinfandel, Vista Luna, California
Regularly $24.99, Tasting Price $20.99
From a small vineyard on the edge of the Sierra Madre mountain range comes this vibrant Zinfandel. With plenty of ripe, brambly fruit and subtle spice notes this wine retains a lot of the acidity that naturally develops while ripening in the cool climate of the Borden Ranch AVA.

2015 Ex Libris, Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, Washington
Regularly $24.99, Tasting Price $20.99
This offering from Washington’s Ex Libris is modeled after the red wines of Bordeaux’s left bank. Based on Cabernet Sauvignon but incorporating small portions of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petite Verdot, this shows plenty of red and black berry fruits with earthy spice and cigar box aromatics. A perfect wine for the cool nights ahead of us.
