Greetings from the Wine Cellar:
March has been an exciting and busy month at the Old Town Wine Cellar and I am really enjoying myself in this new venture, meeting lots of new people and enjoying time with our regular customers too. With the cool weather season winding down the big events in Downtown Yuma are also beginning to wind down but that doesn’t mean nothing is going on downtown. We have lots of shops, restaurants and other merchants to visit and enjoy year round. You can even a book tour of Yuma Downtown with Zaddyz Cabbiz and guess what…The Old Town Wine Cellar is one of the stops on the tour so come have a glass with us when you do the tour.
This Week’s Featured Wines
Juggernaut 2021 Chardonnay (Sonoma, California) $17.99
This Chardonnay is built via a mix of French and American Oak, stainless steel tanks and sur-lie aging. Each technique gives the final blend of character, with a hint of vanilla and buttercream from the oak, to crisp stone fruit flavors resulting from time in stainless steel to the smooth mouthfeel from sur0lie aging.
A to Z Wineworks 2021 Rosé (Oregon) $18.99
This Rosé invites with delicate aromas of rose petal, hibiscus and lime blossom. On the palate, the wine’s minerality provides a beautiful backbone for the juicy yet restrained fruit flavors. Just a touch of sweetness is followed immediately by a line of acidity leading to a smooth finish.
J. Lohr 2021Wildflower Valdiguié (Arroyo Seco, Monterey) $12.99
Crafted in the style of Beaujolais wines, this is a light-bodied red wine. Raspberry, cranberry, and pomegranate aromas, with a bit of black pepper. The palate has red berry with a touch of spice and medium acidity with a long finish. A red wine to Chill for those hot summer days and nights!
Kuleto 2019 Frog Prince Red Blend (Napa Valley, California) $24.99
The Frog Prince puts it all together in a classic Old World style wine. Aromas of raspberry, ripe cherry and dried herbs entice your senses. The nose leads into the palate filled with layer upon layer of red fruit. A vigorous acidity carries throughout and is further accentuated by firm tannins that taper off.
Patz & Hall 2017 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) $39.99
The bouquet of this Pinot Noir’s cool-climate charmer takes the form of bright, fresh cherry and strawberry. These fetching aromas are echoed on the palate, with complex flavors of Morello cherry, strawberry and raspberry edged with spicy cinnamon and clove hints.

Brewed with Wren House’s our house pilsner malt, flaked corn, and a touch of Vienna to bring that crisp malt profile true to the style. It is then hit some classic noble hops in the kettle early on for that refreshing bitterness that reminds you of taking that first sip from a clear long neck bottle just so you can fit in that lime. Drinks with a delicate dryness, delicious in its own simplicity. If you’re feeling adventurous, throw a lime in it or use it in your next michelada!
