Greetings from the Wine Cellar:
Last week was a great time at the Wine Cellar. Adding one top rack wine to our tasting flight for the first week of the months allowed people to try, or have a glass, of a great wine that isn’t typically on the tastings. We also initiated our partnership with Simply Boxed to provide some really delicious options for cheese plates and a full Charcuterie board. We have more this week with some truly scrumptious cheeses. Come in to get one while they last.


Cambria Katherine’s Vineyard 2021 Chardonnay (Santa Barbara, CA) $19.99

Our flagship Chardonnay is barrel-fermented giving it toasted oak, vanilla, and crème brûlée characteristics complemented by notes of citrus and baked apples. This white wine is known for its balance of oak and a refreshingly crisp finish. Pairs well with grilled chicken and mango salsa, roast salmon and gruyere mac and cheese, or fish tacos.
($10 per glass)

Fattorie Melini 2020 San Lorenzo Chianti (Tuscany, Italy) $16.99

The Melini family has been making wines in Chianti since 1705. Their San Lorenzo Chianti is a vivid ruby-garnet color in the glass, with a fine bouquet of raspberries and cherries plus accents of violets and irises. Flavors of dark cherry, wild forest berries and almonds are full and savory.

An unpretentious, every day wine, with attractive notes of blackcurrant, black cherry, and plum. Supple, with moderate, structured tannins balanced nicely by acidity and vibrant fruits on the finish.

Emmolo 2020 Merlot (Napa Valley) $59.99

Oude Pinot Gris Tilqiun, Lambic Beer (Rebecq, Belgium) $30.99

Old Pinot Gris Tilquin is a Lambic beer made from the spontaneous fermentation of 280 gr of Pinot Gris grapes by liter of lambic. Unfiltered and unpasteurized, this beer is refermented in the bottle. Tastes of a prominent dryness from the very beginning together with a honey accompanied white wine grape sweetness. Turns a tad more leaf forward then, with a natural appearing tartness, seemingly resulting from the ripe grapes. Finishes dusty, with a hint of earth and prominent, moldy oak among a late, surprisingly powerful grape fruitiness and matured hop dryness.
