10/26/2020 Newsletter

Greetings from the Wine Cellar:

We had a nice turnout last week, as the Wine Cellar resumed serving Wine Tasting flights and pouring our featured Wines of the Week by the glass. As with all other local dining and drinking establishments dealing with the restrictions imposed on us by the Arizona Dept. of Health Services, we have had to limit our occupancy, but we still have enough seating to handle a reasonable number of patrons at any given time. So stop by the Cellar sometime soon if you haven’t already, and enjoy a flight or just a nice glass of wine with us!

FEATURED WINES THIS WEEK

Archery Summit 2018 Vireton Pinot Gris (Willamette Valley) $21.99

The 2018 Vireton opens with fresh aromas of apple, honeydew melon and citrus fruit with subtle floral tones. In the mouth the wine is focused and silky, yet with a fine acidity that provides a delicate interplay with its rich melon, citrus and tropical fruit flavors.

Santi 2019 Infinito Rosé (Veneto, Italy) $14.99

Infinito Rosé opens with a floral nose, along with hints of ripe pear, subtle spices and a touch of savory herbs. In the mouth it’s fresh, balanced and vibrant, with streamlined acidity and a pleasant hint of salinity. The finish is bracingly dry and mouthwatering, begging for another sip…

J. Lohr 2018 Falcon’s Perch Pinot Noir (Monterey County) $15.99

Falcon’s Perch is a blend of 76% Pinot Noir and 24% Valdiguié. The nose offers aromas of dark berries, rose petals and exotic spices. It’s delicious and seductive, with dark cherry and berry flavors plus complimentary notes of spice, anise and oak toast.

Adam Sbragia 2016 Home Field Red (Dry Creek Valley) $21.99

Sbragia’s Home Field Red is a blend of five varietals: Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Sirah and Carignane from six different Dry Creek Valley vineyards. It’s a bright, lively and “zinny” red with plenty of ripe, brambly raspberry and spice tones and soft, easy tannins.

Alejandro Fernández 2016 Tinto Pesquera (Ribera del Duero, Spain) $32.99

This Spanish Tempranillo opens with deeply scented tones of ripe blueberries and plums, complemented by hints of cedar and roasted coffee. The palate shows outstanding depth, offering layers of ripe black plum and currant fruit flavors on a solid, gripping tannic frame.

NEW WINE & BEER ARRIVALS:

Peju 2016 Merlot (Napa Valley) $39.99

Deep ruby in color, Peju Merlot offers fragrant and nicely layered aromas of juicy pomegranate, baking spice and cedar. Lush flavors of blackberry and cherry fruit envelope the palate. Hints of toasted hazelnut and vanilla bean mingle on the lengthy, elegant finish.

Santi 2016 Solane Valpolicella Ripasso (Veneto, Italy) $14.99

The Solane Valpolicella Classico Superiore is a “ripasso” method Valpolicella; meaning that following the primary fermentation to create a standard Valpolicella, the wine undergoes a second fermentation later with the addition of Amarone pressings, resulting in a richer, bolder and more complex final wine.

Second Chance Brewing “America’s Finest” Tangerine-Agave Blonde Ale (San Diego) $4.99

When the weather turns hot, and your thirst needs quenching, we’ve got you. Let tangy tangerine and blue agave nectar wash over your tastebuds. “America’s Finest” reminds us that with the right cool, refreshing drink in your hand, every day can feel like summer vacation!

Cheers!
