August 2018 Manager Picks

Talamonti Montepulciano d’ Abruzzo (Italy) An intense ruby-red color with violet undertones. Intense bouquet of ripe red fruit. Rich in fruit, lively, elegantly framed by oak spices. $9.99

Elouan Pinot Noir (Oregon) the wine powers up with aromatics of plum pie, mixed-berry jam and smoky, game-bird characteristics that set the stage for flavors of cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and smoked bacon. The balance is excellent, with solid structure, superb depth and concentration, rich tannins, and a nice smoky, earthy finish. FOOD MATCHING: pork loin, pan-seared salmon, Peking duck or veal with a mushroom sauce. $19.99

Barone Fini Pinot Grigio (Italy) Long recognized for producing Pinot Grigio of the highest caliber, it is crisp and clean, focused on the palate, with subtle fruit flavors, balanced acidity, and a lingering finish. This wine pairs well with creamy smoked salmon past, pan fried halibut steak and lemon chicken piccata. $10.99

Butter Chardonnay (California) Wow…Butter Chardonnay is rich, bold and luscious. Made in the tradition of quality Californian winemaking, the grapes we select are juicy, ripe and bursting with flavor. We cold ferment this easy-to-love Chardonnay to a lush creaminess and age it in our unique blend of oak. Butter brims with stone fruit and baked-lemon notes and has a lovely, long, vanilla finish. Simply put, it melts in your mouth! $16.99
