Sparkling

La Marca Prosecco - $19.00
This Prosecco is a fresh tasting sparkling wine offering a vibrant bouquet of golden apple,
white peach and honeysuckle, highlighted by pleasant acidity and soft, harmonious fruit notes.
Northern Italy – Treviso (Prosecco region)
 
J Winery Brut Rose - $39.00
Our J Brut Rosé sparkling wine has a vibrant, pink salmon hue and offers layered aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries, Fuji apples, rose petals and a savory swath of toasted hazelnuts. On the palate, an elegant mouthfeel complements flavors of ripe raspberry, blood orange and blanched almonds. Lively acidity and steely minerality frame a lingering, lush finish for this Brut Rose. We recommend pairing this elegant sparkling rosé with roasted beet and goat cheese salad, a simple plate of smoked salmon canapés, or blue cheese.
 
J Cuvée 20 Brut - $48.00
J Cuvée 20 Brut gracefully opens up with the crisp, clean allure of toasted almonds and Meyer lemon aromas. Upon entry, you notice a delicate tickle of fresh mousse on the nose and palate. Bright acidity adds to the liveliness, while flavors of lemon and lime zest lead to an Asian pear finish. Suggested pairings include classic Eggs Benedict or lemon-scented risotto with caramelized sunchokes. It’s also great with Point Reyes Blue Cheese. 
 

White

Apothic White - $15.00
This blend opens with tropical aromas, followed by flavors of peach and apricot infused
with light floral notes that lead the way to a palate-cleansing finish

 

Bridlewood Estate Blend - $20.00
A well-balanced expression of the Central Coast region, Blend 175 is comprised of Syrah, Grenache, Petite Sirah and Viognier. This full-bodied wine’s dark, jammy fruit flavors and rich, soft tannins are framed nicely by notes of sweet oak, culminating in a graceful, lingering finish.
 
J Winery Pinot Gris - $21.00
With grapes meticulously chosen from the best locations in California, J Pinot Gris offers an alluring bouquet of
lemongrass, Kaffir lime and Asian pear plus tropical notes of pineapple and jasmine flowers. The complex, medium-bodied
mouthfeel reveals crisp citrus and lemongrass, combined with the rich, ripe succulence of pineapple, green pear and jasmine. This intense and layered wine finishes dry with bright, mouthwatering acidity and distinct minerality.
 
Martin Codax Albarino - $21.00
A refreshing food friendly white wine, Albariño is crisp, elegant and dry and has aromas and flavors of pear, passion fruit and apple with bright acidity.
 
Jackson Estates Moillard Grivot Chablis 2013 - $37.00
Light gold in color. Aromas of white fruit, citrus fruit and toast. The palate is fresh, delicate and precise with a finish finely weathered
by the barrel ageing. Perfect with a tripe sausage or Burgundy snails but also with fish, shellfish or poultry with cream sauce or white meat. Hard cheeses (Gruyere and Gouda) or fresh Goat cheese.
 

Rosé

Domaine De Nizas Rose - $20.00
Domaine de Nizas creates elegant wines which express the rich diversity of its carefully selected terroirs on the heights of the medieval town of Pezenas. This wine is expertly blended from three grape varieties grown in three different terroirs: limestone; villafranchian (river pebbles) and basalt. Les Pierres Blanches is named after the limestone terroir which gives it fine red fruit aromas, roundness and vitality.

Juliette Rose - $21.00
Juliette is a delicious and crisp rose wine that has an initial fruit-forward taste of raspberries and berries that give the wine an attractive open feel. Juliette is refreshing and elegant, bone dry rosé wine, with layers of lively fruit and a bright, smooth finish – just the way a true rosé wine from Southern France should be.

 

Red

Apothic Red - $15.00
Intense fruit flavors of black cherry, complemented by hints of mocha and vanilla
 
Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 - $17.00
The Louis M. Martini 2013 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon hails from several of the county's most prestigious vineyards, whose unique characteristics were combined to create a rich, superbly balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. A reflection of the warmer vintage, the wine offers ripe flavors of blackcurrant and jammy black plum accented by notes of caramelized oak and baking spice. The round, plush mouthfeel offers firm structure framed by a fruit-focused finish.


Las Rocas Garnacha - $26.00
Well-structured, dark cherry flavors and elegant hints of oak with round, supple tannins and a long, rich finish.

Jackson Estates Moillard Grivot Ladoix Rouge - $42
