NV Dibon Brut Cava
Penedes, Spain
Light gold with plenty of bubbles, this wine has aromas of apples and pears with pleasant floral notes. Crisp and light-bodied on the palate, stone fruit flavors are accompanied by a mild minerality and balanced acidity. A delicious sparkler for a great price.

2015 La Follette North Coast Chardonnay
North Coast, California
Unbridled aromatics of ripe nectarine, vanilla and grilled bread provide an enticing greeting. Mouthwatering acidity on entry softens to pear compote and a touch of creaminess on the palate. The finish extends with citrus notes. Elegant and energetic, the La Follette North Coast Chardonnay is a harmonious blend of exceptional vineyards and judicious winemaking, and decidedly ‘coastal’ in character and personality. 89 Pts Wine Enthusiast

2016 Lola Pinot Noir
North Coast, California
A blend of unique vineyards from Mendocino, Russian River Valley and the Sonoma Coast.
2016 was a great vintage in the North Coast and the wine reflects that balance seen in nature itself throughout the year.
The wine is made in the same style as always, preserving the dark berry fruit, cola and redwood forest aromas of Northern California grown Pinot Noir while maintaining bright acidity, lower alcohol and a soft, supple, delicate tannin structure.

2016 St Cosme Deux Albion
Rhone Valley, France
Les Deux Albions is one of the outstanding wines of Louis Barruol’s collection and highlights the exceptional value that can still be found in the Côtes-du-Rhône category. The wine combines depth, structure, and finesse with aromas and flavors of roasted game, mesquite, and olive, crushed plum, and black currants.

2016 Acre Zinfandel
Napa Valley, California
Three words come to mind immediately on tasting the 2016 ACRE Zinfandel: bold, dark, rich. The color is deep garnet, especially dark for a 100% Zinfandel. The aroma is plush, full of black fruits, black cherry, blackberry and higher-toned raspberry along with spicy notes of cedar, sage and licorice. These flavors continue in the mouth with a generous and supple expression. Noteworthy is the exceptional structure and fine tannins which give the wine a long journey across the palate leading to a satisfying finish. This is a serious Zinfandel that would make an ideal and versatile dinner companion.
