6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2016 John Anthony Sauvignon Blanc

Napa Valley, California

Vibrant tart fruit aromas with white pepper and citrus blossom. Pineapple, kiwi and guava flavors with honeysuckle and ginger with a lean texture. Minerality pervades throughout the freshness and energy of this bright Sauvignon Blanc. 90 Pts Wine Enthusiast

2017 Sbragia Home Ranch Chardonnay

Sonoma, California

Farmed by the Sbragia family for decades, Home Ranch Vineyard is located at the southeast end of Dry Creek Valley, where temperatures are cooler than most of the appellation. The 2017 growing season was another great one despite inconsistent temperatures. This vintage has aromas of ripe apples and stone fruit, followed by lemon peel, and a kiss of sweet oak and vanilla. 89 Pts Wine Spectator & James Suckling

BTG $7.75  Retail $17.99

2017 Siduri Pinot Noir

Santa Barbara, California

Sourced from vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Maria Velley. It showcases the vibrancy and depth of flavor so synonymous with the region while mirroring the charm and romance that is always found in the area. Aromas of crushed slate, red cherry and rose petals lead into a bouncy palate that’s tart in flavors of pomegranate and raspberry. 93 Pts Wine Enthusiast

BTG $10.75 Retail $27.99

2016 Dry Creek Cabernet

78Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, and 2% Petit Verdot.

This impeccable Cabernet Sauvignon displays lively aromatics of black cherry, blackcurrant, and dried blueberry. Additional airing reveals nuances of dried Herbes de Provence, cola, leather, and black olive. The palate is full-bodied and rich with elegant flavors of black currant and dried cranberry with notes of cocoa powder, espresso, nutmeg, and cedar. The wine is fruit-forward and youthful, with fine tannins and a finish of black and white pepper. It offers intensity and richness and reflects the terroir beautifully.

2017 Emmolo Merlot

From the famous Caymus Portfolio

Grapes for this wine were sourced from Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll district, which includes two family vineyards. The area’s cooler weather, along with crop thinning and gravelly light soil, creates ideal conditions for producing a rich, distinctive Merlot. This wine is lush and supple on the palate, with expansive, dark berry flavors, a fresh earthiness, and smooth, leathery tannin. 4.4 Vivino Retail $37.99
