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

Notorious Pink Rosé 2022 (Vin de France, France) $18.99

Blush pink in color, Notorious Pink is 100% Grenache and inviting with a pleasant under-ripe strawberry, mango, and citrus zest scent with a crisp and refreshing mineral character. This is not as dry as most French rosé wines and can be enjoyed with seafood, vegetables, pastas, and poultry dishes, but easily stands on its own.
($10 by the glass)

1,000 Stories Chardonnay Bourbon Barrel Aged 2020 (California) $19.99

The 2020 Chardonnay reflects the classic California style: full-bodied, richly textured and bursting with layers of bright fruit flavor. A palate of peach, pear and pineapple sets the stage for a baked-apple richness and creamy mouthfeel. Bourbon barrel aging weaves a warm thread of vanilla, crème brûlée and wood spice in the glass, culminating in a memorable butterscotch finish.
($10 by the glass)

Rainstorm Pinot Noir 2022 (Willamette Valley, Oregon) $19.99

From vine to bottle, Rainstorm Pinot Noir is carefully and thoughtfully crafted. Medium ruby red. Aromas of strawberry, rose hips, and cranberry. On the palate, red berries are soft and elegant with bright cherry and pomegranate flavors. Ideal with grilled salmon, duck, mushroom risotto, and pork loin.
($10 by the glass)

1,000 Stories Zinfandel 2021 (California) $19.99

This delicious, savory California Zin opens with scents of blackberries and raspberries, accented by notes of molasses and clove. The rich fruit is enhanced by unmistakable Bourbon whiskey flavors of charred vanilla and caramel, imparted by Bourbon Barrel Aging in barrels previously used by fine Bourbon distillers.
($10 by the glass)

Caymus Suisun The Walking Fool Red Wine 2021 (Suisun Valley, California) $35.99

This new red wine blend is produced from Suisun Valley, a remarkable AVA that has become the Wagner family’s second home. Like its close neighbor Napa Valley, Suisun Valley has ideal soil and climate for a variety of grapes. Featuring Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, this wine is smooth and lively, with juicy raspberry, notes of espresso and softly fine tannins. The Walking Fool is named after a long-ago relative who was often seen traveling on foot – thus earning this affectionate moniker.
($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)

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)

Pahlmeyer Jayson Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 (Napa Valley, California) $75.99/Bottle

Effusive aromas of blackberry pie, cassis, and leather greet the nose, foretelling the full, expressive palate. Intense notes of blackberry and plum interweave with flecks of pink peppercorn and plowed earth, amplified by a lift of fresh acidity. Full-bodied with silky tannins seamlessly melded with the rich fruit, driving to a plush, juicy finish. Nicely concentrated, without being overblown. ($15 per glass)
