SPARKLING WINES and DRY ROSE (Still):

1) Domaine de Fondreche Rose 2018, Ventoux, Rhone Valley (still): $7 50% Cinsault, 25% Syrah, 25% Grenache. A nose of delicate notes of citrus and red currant. A perfectly measured vivacity on the palate with mineral undertones.

2) Domaine Michel Stephane Briday Cremant de Bourgogne : $8 This is an attractively soft and fruity wine, full of creamed-apple and citrus flavors. A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Aligoté, it is soft, with light acidity and an easygoing refreshing character. Drink now.

3) Champagne Biard Loyaux Grande Reserve N.V.: $13 25 % Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay from 2013 and small blend of an aged Pinot Noir and Chardonnay blend from three successive past vintages ’09,’10 and ’11.

4) Geoffroy Saignee Rose: $20 The nose of this Champagne is a spring bouquet: rose, wild strawberry, raspberry and later blackberry combine perfectly to offer aromas, which would not be expected in a conventional rosé Champagne. The mouth follows on from the nose, and, thanks to the structure of the Pinot Noir, the vinosity of the finish is compelling. Because of this freshness, this Rosé de Saignée Champagne is best enjoyed young to take full advantage of aromas of small, fresh and crisp red berries.

5) Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2006: $25! Special deal! A blend of eight of the House’s traditional Grands Crus. La Grande Dame 2006 is an exclusive blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from eight classic Grands Crus. In line with the style of the house, which is Pinot Noir dominant, the blend is 53% Pinot Noir and 47% Chardonnay. The wine has intense color with golden glints and very fine sparkling bubbles. Each cuvée of La Grande Dame has exceptional aging potential. The current vintage 2006 can be enjoyed now until 2025.

WHITE WINES 

6) Nikolaihof “Zwicki” Gruner Veltliner 2019, Wachau: $9 James Suckling 91 pts. The haze of yeast, a result of unfiltered bottling, really gives this light gruner something special and the fruit of the 2019 vintage fits well with that. Nice, nutty apple character with a touch of creaminess from the suspended lees. Bright, crisp finish. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

7) Stewart Cellars Chardonnay 2016, Sonoma Mountains: $11 Inspired by varieties that flourish in Paso Robles and California’s Central Coast, Troublemaker is a truly distinct Paso blend consisting of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Petite Syrah and Zinfandel. By using a multi-vintage approach, winemaker Austin Hope allows the wine to show uncanny complexity in its youth, yet rich and fruit-forward characteristics that make it ready upon release. With rich aromatics that display hints of smoke and violets, bright fruit on the palate and a long finish, Troublemaker shows amazing depth and structure.

8) Dirty & Rowdy Chenin Blanc 2019, Mendocino: $12 “Quest-worthy Chenin Blanc, as if made by middle earth creatures in a secret winery behind a waterfall guarded by a dragon. Smile driven wine. Flavors of Asian Pear, new wool, squeaky chair lift snow, and peppery young olive oil. You’ll think we made a deal with the devil. Pair with steamed mussels and fries, herb crusted pork loin, and giant turkey legs.” – Hardy Wallace

RED WINES  

8) Charles Krug Pinot Noir 2015, Carneros, Napa: $10 Charles Krug Pinot Noir comes from the cool, foggy Carneros region where Burgundian-style varieties maintain their balance of acidity and ripeness. Aromas of cherry, vanilla, raspberry and hunts of cocoa envelop flavors of black cherry and caramel.

9) Quinto do Ataide 2015, Douro: $8 WE 92 pts. The extensive organic vineyard of Quinta do Ataíde is in the Douro Superior. This wine, made from selected parcels of vines, is full, spicy with hints of the wood aging, along with mint aromas. Its richness and its dense texture are lightened by acidity. It will still need to age further, so drink from 2020. A blend of Touriga Nacional , Touriga Franca , Tinta Barroca , Tinta Roriz and Tinta Cao .

10) Dirty & Rowdy Mourvedre 2019, CA: $10 “Tried, true, and your go to. Our most popular wine from the wild side of the woods. It is energetic, thirst quenching and shows the full spectrum of Mourvèdre from blood orange to roasted game. Too much around the house is never quite enough. This is your portal to the astral plane – break on through!” – Hardy Wallace

11) Marietta Game Trail Yorkville Highlands Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon 2017: $12 Powerful, dark and quite savory. Smoke, tobacco, gravel, menthol, cedar and licorice all run through this bold, pungent mountain Cabernet. There is quite a bit of aromatic intensity to play off the blackberry fruit in this strapping young wine. Give it a few years in bottle for the tannins to soften.
