Greetings from the Wine Cellar:
With the weather continuing to be toasty, we are again highlighting two white wines on the Featured Wines of the Week. Try these crisp refreshing whites, along with the great red wines we are featuring for $15, have a glass, or enjoy one of our cold beers. The Old Town Wine cellar is a wonderful place to beat the heat. In fact, you might want to bring along a light sweater or jacket when you stop in as the temperature in the wine cellar is always a brisk 68 to 70 degrees to keep our fine wines happy.

If you have been in the Wine Cellar lately, you may have noticed that the portraits are gone down from the south wall. Not to worry, this is temporary as we refresh that wall with a new coat of paint wall and will be reframing and hanging the portraits back up soon.


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

Dr. H. Thanisch Estate Riesling 2022 (Mosel Valley, Germany) $17.99/Bottle

This wine is extremely well structured with a deep golden color and powerful but also elegant characteristics: Minerals, peaches, pear cumquat, watermelon, currant grapefruit with a hint of gooseberry and raspberry.
($10 by the glass)

Saint Clair Dillons Point Sauvignon Blanc 2023 (Marlborough, New Zealand) $23.99/Bottle

The Dillons Point Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from a selection of vineyards located predominantly in the lower Wairau sub-region of Marlborough. This region is renowned for producing excellent Sauvignon Blanc with heightened expression.
($10 by the glass)

Black Slate Priorat Escaladei Vi de la Vila 2019 (Priorat, Spain) $24.99/Bottle

Black Slate Escaladei, a blend of Garnatxa, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Carinyena, are sourced from the foothills of the Montsant mountains. It stands out among its Black Slate siblings as the most elegant of the lineup, being inclined more towards red fruit than black, with a high-toned minerality and spiciness.
($10 by the glass)

Achaval Ferrer 2020 Cabernet Franc (Mendoza, Argentina) $19.99/Bottle

The 2020 Cabernet Franc has a full palette of aromas and flavors: from black fruit to the freshness of tomato leaf and rosemary. Some people have described this Cabernet Franc as aromatic and expressive like a Chinon [Loire Valley] but with the tannic structure and grip of Saint Emilion [Bordeaux].
($10 by the glass)

Force & Grace Cabernet Sauvignon 2021 (Paso Robles, California) $35.99/Bottle

Force & Grace Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is dense and textured, with concentrated ripe black cherry, blackberry, raspberry fruit leather and cassis flavors, and velvety tannins that beautifully complement the rich fruit. Layers of berries, caramel and notes of blonde tobacco linger on the persistent finish.
($15 by the glass)


Dana Estates Onda Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 (Napa Valley, California) $310.99/Bottle

The 2019 Onda Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of blackberries, baking spice, and plum tart. Intermingled with the fruit are notes of coffee and a hint of graphite. Rich fruit with dense flavors of black cherries, plums, and currants layer with graphite and a briny minerality. The velvety mid-palate transitions to flavors of black truffle, brioche, and blackberry on the finish. The predominantly hillside provenance of the grapes lends a broad mouth coating tannin backbone.
($60 per 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 are exceptional, with a tangerine edge to the blackcurrants, graphite, lead pencil, flowers, and wet earth. It changes all the time. 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. ($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)


Château De La Coste Margaux 2019 (Bordeaux, Frace) $49.99/Bottle

Château de La Coste is the second wine of Château Paveil de Luze. Château Paveil de Luze is one of the oldest properties in the Médoc. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, Château de La Coste is made using young vines and selected fruit from Château Paveil de Luze itself. The wine has a brilliant, ruby color with purple reflections and aromas of black fruits and cassis with hints of cinnamon and sandalwood. This wine is soft, satisfying and elegant with a lush, ripe berry taste.

Talmard Macon-Chardonnay 2022 (Burgundy, France) $20.99/Bottle

The terroir of the commune of Chardonnay is slightly different from those of the commune of Uchizy in the clay-limestone proportion. The result presents minerals on the palate with a pleasing freshness. This wine is one of the very finest examples of the fresh, appealing style of Chardonnay grown in rolling limestone hills of the Mâconnais.

Brilla Prosecco Rosé (Veneto, Italy) $18.99/Bottle

From the Veneto wine region, Brilla rosé Prosecco is so pretty in the glass. Pale pink and elegant on the nose with a lively and persistent mousse of ripe cherry, red berry, lemon-lime zest notes. Chill and enjoy on its own or with seafood and veggie appetizers.
