Santa Maria la Palma Aragosta, Vermentino, Crisp White, Sardegna, Italy, Y, Fresh dried stone fruit with a hint of green olive and cocoa bean, which continues in the mouth; assertive with good acidity, minerality and persistence with a hint of the ocean.
Such a beautiful color of green. Fresh and satisfying and from Sicily.
Chatom, Sauvignon Blanc w touch of Semillon, Crisp White, Calaveras, CA, “Inviting aromas of honeysuckle and quince are woven into the nose with hints of herbs and white pepper.”
French Onion and Goat Cheese Spread
So nice served warm. A quick and easy appetizer for New Year’s Eve but will sustain you in the cold month of January.
La Cote Blanche, Chardonnay, Crisp White, Macon, Burgundy, Fr, Pretty stone fruit bouquet and flavors with nice acid; fresh, with good minerality.
Aged Mimolette From Lille in Northern France, this cheese looks like a cantaloupe. It was commissioned by King Louis Xiv when he banned the importation of foreign products to France. So, this cheese was created to replicate Gouda cheeses. If you are buying Mimolette, make sure you get the aged version.
Ch du Breuil Grolleau, Fresh Red, Anjou, Loire, Fr, Y. A fun and forward fruity red wine with the classic white pepper and spice notes of this native grape; round and generous
A fresh tasting paté enhanced with orange liquor, orange peel and pistachios. A customer favorite.
Collelluce, Cartella 8, Vino Rosso, Vernaccia Rosso, Smooth Red , Marche, Italy, Brilliant ruby red color, spicy aromas of berries, warm and full bodied, persistent in the mouth
Produced in Calabria, a little sheepier in flavor than our Pecorino Toscano. Aged in a wicker basket.
La Striscia Chianti, Sangiovese, Smooth Red, Tuscany, Italy, Y, Nice dark fruit and tea bouquet, continuing in the mouth with nice balance and freshness
Olli Toscano Salame
A traditional Tuscan salame imbued with fennel pollen giving it a licorice-like flavor. It will remind you of Tuscan hills where fennel grows wild.
