December 2019 manager picks

Nielson Chardonnay (Santa Barbara Ca) Aged in neutral French oak barrels to preserve freshness, this coastal Chardonnay is highlighted by notes of pineapple, citrus and a blast of tropical fruit. $18.99

Cline Viognier (California) A bright blend of honeysuckle and mango flavors give plenty of personality to this medium-bodied, well-balanced wine. Bright acidity lifts the mouthfeel for a refreshing, but still rich flavor profile- Wine Spectator $9.99

Oberon Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (California) to achieve Oberon Cabernet’s lovely flavor and texture, a kiss of Syrah, a dash of Merlot and sprinkling of Zinfandel helped to create Oberon’s deep colors, supple tannins, and vibrant black cherry, candied blackberry and spices. A hint of coffee and dark chocolate create a lingering and delightful finish. $23.99

Steve Bird Big Barrel Pinot Noir (New Zealand) refers to Steve’s use of a unique roll fermentation method in big, 1000 litre French oak fudres. This results in very gentle extraction of color and tannins from the grapes and to this wine’s magnificent texture. $24.99
