1 to 4pm
At the Bar
Join us to taste two new Spanish arrivals, including the triumphant return of the Crapula!
2015 “OGV” Old Vines Garnacha, Calatayud
On Sale $9.99
There is a new 2015 OGV Old Garnacha Vine, sourced from different plots at 800 to 1,000 meters altitude on slate and clay soils, and fermented in concrete vats followed by six months in second-use French and new American oak barrels. It feels like a super Albada, subtle and elegant, quite harmonious and balanced, offering more balsamic notes with time in the glass. The palate revealed juicy fruit and clean flavors with an earthy touch that makes it very tasty. 24,200 bottles were filled in February 2017.

2013 Crapula “CR Gold,” Jumilla, Spain (Monastrell-Syrah)
On Sale $10.99
Powerful blackberry aromas are matched by creamy oak. This Monastrell-Syrah blend is a driller, with strong tannins and more than enough body weight. Oaky flavors of dark-berry fruits and black plums finish with vanilla and lactic notes. This is rock solid from head to toe.
