Chateau Pesquie Terrasses Rouge

$16.00

REGION: Cotes du Ventoux, Rhone, France

VARIETAL/BLEND: 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah

NOTES: “Always a terrific value… complex, classic southern Rhone notes of dried garrigue, pepper, spice-box, licorice and sweet cherry fruit. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, elegant and balanced red that gains depth and richness with time in the glass, has loads Provencal character and a great finish.”- RP. Paired with pizza, kebabs, charcuterie.

MUSIC PAIRING: Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Dr. John, Captain Beefheart

RAVES & REVIEWS: RP- 91 pts


Beyra

$12.00

REGION: Douro, Portugal

VARIETAL/BLEND: Tempranillo and Mencia blend

NOTES: Fruity aroma with very elegant and discreet minerality. Berries and spices, fresh, with a fruity lasting finish. The soul of this wine lies in the unique combination of the Síria and Fonte Cal native grape varieties, from old vines planted in granite and schist soils with quartz veins, in the Douro River’s hydrographical basin, at an average altitude of 700 metres above sea level. Enjoy with lamb dishes, appetizers, cheeses, pastas and Mediterranean cuisine.

MUSIC PAIRING: New Arrival!


Cigar Malbec

$12.50

REGION: Mendoza Argentina

VARIETAL/BLEND: 100% Malbec

NOTES: Sourced from a single vineyard, the grapes for this wine were bunch selected and hand harvested. The wine displays aroma of ripe plum and violets along with subtle hints of vanilla. Of great structure, this wine stands out for its meatiness and intense rich flavor while a soft silky finish balance the overall experience. Drink with grilled meat or salmon, or alone in your room with the door locked…you are the boss!

MUSIC PAIRING: New Arrival!
