Greetings from the Wine Cellar:
The weather is beginning to warm up and there is no place better to escape the heat and cool down than the Old Town Wine Cellar. We have another nice line-up this week so come see us to sample our Featured Wines of the Week or enjoy a Cold Brew.

This week the City of Yuma’s will celebrate our 110th Birthday on Saturday, April 13, 2024, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Downtown Yuma. The celebration will feature food vendors, music, raffles, a kid’s play area, and a birthday cake (first-come, first-served basis). Hope to see you while you are Downtown celebrating.


(Sample all five featured wines for $15 or by the Glass)

Trefethen Dry Riesling 2022 (Napa Valley, California) $19.99

Trefethen Dry Riesling shows vibrant aromas of stone fruit and lemon zest are layered with notes of jasmine and wildflowers. Fresh on the palate, flavors of grapefruit, lime, and other citrus lead to a clean and bright finish. It is super mouth cleansing and appetizing due to vivid acidity. The salinity of shellfish, especially oysters, resonates beautifully with the mineral

Argyle Reserve Pinot Noir 2022 (Willamette Valley, Oregon) $39.99

The Argyle Willamette Valley Pinot Noir highlights the elegance and complexity of the Willamette Valley AVA, showcasing the purity of fruit and lively texture the region has to offer. Delicate fermentation and gentle pressing enhanced this wine’s silky mouthfeel. The wine showcases both dark and red cherry flavors, as well as black tea and spice accents. On the palate, fresh, vibrant acidity and polished tannins frame the flavors, while adding precise and persistent length.
($15 by the glass)

Provenance Vineyards Merlot 2019 (Napa Valley, California) $25.99

Smoked spices, chocolate, black olives, and cured meat on top of the rich black cherries and blackberries. Ripe and flavorful on the palate with a medium to full body coated by opulent fruit and creamy tannins. Long and flattering finish.
($12 by the glass)

Smith and Hook Propriety Red Wine 2021 (Central Coast, California) $22.99

This expressive blend features intense aromas of red and black berries, plums and dark cherries underscored by notes of lavender. The palate is smooth and rich with flavors of dark fruit, bramble berries and a touch of dried eucalyptus and warm spice on a lingering finish. Pairs perfectly with duck confit, charcuterie board, or a pomegranate salad with crispy prosciutto.
($10 by the glass)

Violetta Barolo 2018 (Piedmont, Italy) $39.99

While the color of the wine is a pale brick red, it has a bold mouth feel with rigid tannin. The wines of Barolo are aged for at least 18 months in barrel and are released after a total of 3+ years having subtle notes of spice, rose, cherry and fig. Expressive aromatic truffles in the fall are a match made in heaven when served with Barolo, but it matches well with grilled meats, lamb, chicken, or risotto with mushrooms.
($15 by the glass)


Orin Swift Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon 2021 (Napa Valley, California) $175.99/Bottle

An almost-black, opaque garnet core sits in the glass with slow-moving tears falling down the sides. Aromatic notes of ripe cassis, charred ribeye, sandalwood and freshly cut oak pilfer — breathe deeper for more. The first sip is a complex, layered conundrum of blackberry, black plum, fennel, licorice, and dark chocolate. More sips peel back the layers to reveal a rich and balanced wine with a deep cassis core. A sweet linger on the finish closes the wine with softly textured chalky tannins. ($35 per glass)

Beaulieu Vineyard 2019 Georges de Latour Private Reserve (Napa Valley, California) $155.99/Bottle

Wow! The aromas to this are exceptional, with a tangerine edge to the blackcurrants, graphite, lead pencil, flowers, and wet earth. It changes all the time. So expressive and refined. Full-bodied with great intensity and depth of fruit. The ultra-fine tannins display millions of layers. The texture on the palate is superb and lasts for minutes. This is the new 1974 George de Latour, which was a legend. Real Napa Valley red here. Drinkable now, to understand it, but genuinely great in five to six years and onwards.
($32 per glass)

Col Solare Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 (Columbia Valley, Washington) $145.99/Bottle

A study in refinement and elegance, fruit takes a back seat to floral, savory, and mineral elements in the wine’s aromatics of violet, lavender, sage, and subtle black currant. The palate is a velvety mouthfeel and slowly reveals dark-fruit character as it progresses, which lasts long on the palate. This wine will soften with some time. ($30 per glass)

Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 (Alexander Valley, California) $104.99/Bottle

The 2019 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has notes of red cherry, raspberry, blackberry, iris, vanilla, and clove. Ruby in color, this elegant wine has great acidity and lift on the mid-palate. Black currant and warm baking spices linger with a deep and fruity finish. It will provide drinking pleasure through 2047 given proper cellaring. Blend: 95.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Cabernet Franc, 1.9% Merlot, 0.4% Petit Verdot. ($25 per glass)

JUSTIN 2019 Isosceles (Paso Robles, California) $89.99/Bottle

Isosceles presents with aromatic notes of ripe blackberry, juicy black plum, and cassis with dried violet, leather, vanilla bean, fresh herbs, camphor, and toasted oak. Full-bodied with baked black cherry pie, fresh mission fig, and black currant on the entry. The midpalate of new leather, fresh wild sage, porcini mushroom, dried black olive, and cedar is carried by balanced freshness and abundant velvety tannins that lead to a long, complex finish of sustained fresh berries, camphor, oak, toasted cinnamon stick, star anise, and dried flowers. ($22 per glass)

DAOU Reserve 2020 Seventeen Forty (Paso Robles, California) $78.99/Bottle

This is a Cabernet Franc driven wine with a harmonious complement of Merlot. Beguiling aromas of blackberry cobbler, raspberry, crème de cassis and cherry pipe tobacco anticipate hints of toasty oak, black licorice, and pencil shaving. Lush and full bodied, this wine bestows rich flavors of cherry, black plum, dark chocolate, and blueberry compote with lovely accents of Zante currant, graphite, and cinnamon. Solid structure and fine-grained tannins support a lengthy, focused finish, leaving notes of plum and boysenberry underscored by cocoa and black truffle. ($20 per glass)


Château Les Troix Croix Bordeaux 2016 (Bordeaux, France) $57.99

Beautiful dark purple in color. This is gorgeous, with deep damson fruits rippling with minerality. It isn’t overworked but is full of intensity. It has a lot of characteristics of the best limestone plateau wines of St-Émilion and is one of the value picks of Bordeaux. Excellent.

Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 (Napa Valley, California) $38.99

A bouquet of dark red berry fruit, supported by briary cherry, and tea-leaf herbaceous notes. Juicy and bright strawberry preserves, black raspberry, black cherry, and cola, on the palate supported by delicate hints of mint, mocha, and dark chocolate. Smooth and round tannins, offering a plush texture and mouthfeel leading to a long, savory finish with focused acidity.

By All Mean Brewing Co, Lucent Bond Krystal Weisse (Billings, Montana) $5.99

This easy-going wheat beer gets its bright color from our careful centrifugation process. The fresh Sicilian Lemon and grated ginger make Lucent Bond a bright, thirst-quenching brew to be enjoyed from wherever your adventures take you.
