Bear Hug Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon - California
First pass with your nose brings enticing aromas ripe cherries, flowers, and cotton candy. After your nose has had its fill of this intriguing blend of aromatic flavors, it’s time take the first sip. Savor bright cherries, cassis, and ripe blackberries and contributes to a mouth feel that is full and pleasing with a smooth, easy going finish.
Cepage Merlot - France
This round, fruit-driven Merlot expresses the character of its French soil. Produced by Bordeaux wine magnate Bernard Magrez, smooth Cepage Merlot pours forth with an aromatic elegance that makes it the ideal partner for red meats and sharp cheeses.
Cantus Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC - Italy
A well-tuned vintage car has a special rumble. It’s strong and familiar and makes you feel like you can go anywhere. Montepulciano’s the ruby red 1959 Alfa Romeo of wines—one of the most popular Italian grapes, robust and able to hold its own with meaty meals. Cantus Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC is dry and harmonious, with aromas of tobacco and leather. Enjoy this medium-bodied red after you’ve been out for a spin.
Qapay Sauvignon Blanc - Chile
Qapay Sauvignon Blanc is a classic example of what can be done with this popular variety in Central Chile. The grapes are exposed to wonderful sun and an almost greenhouse-like regularity of dry, hot days and dry, cool nights throughout the growing season--near perfect ripening conditions. The result is a clean, citrusy, lean and fresh wine. The nose is full of grapefruit and green apple followed by zesty flavors of green fruits, lime, and floral notes and a long, crisp finish. Outstanding as an aperitif or a cocktail wine, it is also ideal with salads using arugula, fennel, or roasted bell peppers, and is a refreshing companion for richer white meats like pork and lobster.
Snickerdoodle Chardonnay - California
When we taste 1000's of bottles every year looking for only the very best, there is a lot of hit and miss when it comes to find balanced Chardonnays. It has to be just right and that is exactly what Snickerdoodle is, just right. The fruit is fresh with flavors of green apple, necatrine, and juicy melon. With only a small touch of oak, this wine remains crisp and refreshing with a perfect amount of linger in the finish. Purely delicious Chardonnay, a gem of a find from California. We know you are going to love it.
Val Di Botte Pinot Grigio I.G.T. - Provincia di Pavia, Italy
Just south of Milan close to the Italian Alps and boarding Alto-Adige, probably the definitive source for the world’s best Pinot Grigio, is where Val di Botte sources the amazing grapes that produce this exquisite white wine. This low alcohol balanced acid driven Pinot Grigio flaunts citrus zest, apple, pears, and nectarine flavors mingling with slight almond and ginger notes. The quintessential summertime wine, it is light, refreshing, and perfect for the season. We recommend this wine served ice cold to maximize the crispness.
