Stop in Saturday and sample these fine wines from California, Italy & Washington.
Charles Smith Velvet Devil Merlot (Washington) This little devil is wrapped in a velvet robe. Full with density and bursting with flavor. Dark fruit, cherry, blackberry. Brimming with cedar, pipe tobacco and earth. Truth in a name: Velvet! $10.99
Ruffino Riserva Ducale Chianti Classico (Italy) This complex and deep red wine is characterized by sweet cherry and red berry fruit notes with delicately spiced hints of tobacco, leather, cedar, white pepper and a touch of flint. It’s well balanced on the palate, with velvety tannins, firm acidity and a lingering finish of rosemary and figs. Its structure will allow it to age for many years. $22.99
Simi Chardonnay (Sonoma) The nose has expressive notes of pineapple, peach, pear, and green apple. Lifted aromatics of citrus, lightly spiced with toasty oak and hints of buttery cream add a savory character. It all comes together on the palate with well-defined, fresh flavors of tangerine, lemon curd, stone fruit, white peach, and nectarine, lifted by a lightly toasted and warm oak character. Pair with roasted butternut squash soup with caramelized apples and mashed sweet potatoes with sage. $15.99
Charles Smith Kungfu Girl Riesling (Washington) White peach, mandarin orange and apricot are delivered with a core of minerality that makes this dry Riesling shimmer with energy and freshness. Another epic vintage of Kung Fu Girl. $10.99
