NV Proa Brut Cava, Spain

Our entire staff was taken with this charming little Cava, which offers up flavors of crisp green apple and ripe pears, aromas of spring flowers, pinpoint bubbles, and a wonderful dry finish. It’s hard to find sparkling wine this good at such an incredible price.
2016 Brack Mountain “Cyprus” Rosé of Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley, California

This gorgeous rose explodes right out of the bottle with notes of cherry blossom, honeysuckle, and hyacinth. On the palate, it has notes of ripe Rainier cherries, watermelon, and peach with a nice, dry finish. Made with all Anderson Valley fruit!

This ripe, fruity single vineyard Cabernet is an incredible bargain at this price! It’s rich and full-boded, with notes of black cherry, cassis, herbs, and classic Dry Creek Valley earth notes. More of a modern style for Cabernet, this wine pleases a crowd and is approachable now.
2014 Forth Vineyards Histoire “Chapter 6” Cabernet, Dry Creek Valley, California

This gorgeous Cabernet has 10% Syrah giving it an inky, ripe fruity edge. Notes of black currant, dark cherry, and toasty oak lead into a wonderful long finish.
