6:00-9:00 PM
No charge for tastings

NV Bodegas Pinord Cava Dibon Brut Reserve
Penedes, Spain
Based on the classic Cava grape varieties with a secondary fermentation after 16 months in bottle. It has a simple bouquet that has pleasant, light floral aromas. The palate has a crisp citric entry with touches of Clementine and grapefruit with fine delineation towards the fresh, apple-y finish. 88 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $5.50 Retail $11.99

2011 Luigi Tacchino Gavi di Gavi
Piedmont, Italy
Crisp, fresh 2011 with no time in oak. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon blossom and green apples emerge from this light-bodied white wine that is
refreshing and delightful
BTG $7.00 Retail $16.99

2010 Ch√Ęteau de Brondeau
Bordeaux, France
This is lively with notes of plum skin, cherry preserves and fig wound at the core, while roasted wood spice and anise hints flitter around. Features solid grip and stays racy through the finish, displaying an echo of mocha. 90Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.50 Retail $17.99

2011 Bodegas y Vinedos O Fournier Urban Uco Tempranillo Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
A blend of 50% Tempranillo and 50% Malbec that spent 3 months in oak. Deep purple in color, with an inviting bouquet of smoke, blackberry, and blueberry, on the palate it is loaded with flavor, depth, and length. This stunning overachiever may be the finest value in my Argentina tastings. Buy it by the case. 91 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $6.00 Retail $13.99

2008 Mercer Cabernet
Columbia Valley, Washington
Cassis and toasted oak mingle with ripe cherry and cocoa in the nose and continue on the palate with additional complexities of forest floor, sweet earth and spice revealed with air. Textured, full-bodied and long; supple tannins support the fruit which is framed by fresh acidity. Approachable and elegant upon release, this wine will age nicely and increasingly show its depth and additional complexities over time.
BTG $9.50 Retail $23.99
