MiMi Rose’ (Provence France) Nose: It possesses a complex nose reminiscent of red berries and fresh ripe white peaches. Palate: A very pleasant wine which embraces one’s palate with a pleasant and harmonious lightness. $13.99
Michael David Petite Petit (California) A blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot, our 2015 Petite Petit is a dense, inky, opaque wine bursting with ripe berry fruit and pastry aromas. Rich and weighty, Petite Sirah’s robust tannins are rounded out by the softer, lush mouth-feel of Petit Verdot. Flavors of summer blueberry, puffed pastry, black pepper and vanilla stretch out over a seductive, lengthy finish. Food Pairing Notes Winemaker Derek DeVries loves to pair Petite Petit with a juicy prime rib! $21.99
Caravella Limoncello (Itlay) With lemons from the abundant groves of Southern Italy’s Amalfi Coast and a centuries-old family recipe, the Sperone brothers make Caravella Limoncello. Long a heralded tradition throughout Italy, this bright Italian Spirit is now the #1 Limoncello in the United States. $16.99
Borsao Tres Pico Garnacha (Spain) Presents in the nose a great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. In the mouth, it is a well structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with a soft and silky tannin. $15.99
Sunday Mountain Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand) Powerful, balanced, fragrant, and fruity, Our taste profile includes the obligatory “gooseberry” nose, but we seek more of a citrus and grapefruit finish, giving it more of a softer texture, linked with good acidity, this makes for a great aperitif full of zingyness. $13.99
