Come try some great wines for celebrating or gifting!
Veiga Naùm Albariño – Fragrant, flavorful, and dry, Albariño is an ideal accompaniment to seafood– everything from oysters and octopus to crab legs and white fish. Veiga Naúm is from the coolest part of Rías Baixas where sea mists regularly invade the vineyards, even in summer, and you can taste the maritime influence in the wine.
Domain de Vieil Aven Tavel – A unique and beautiful wine that will please your entire gathering! Tavel is a rich, full bodied rosé with a lot more color and body than you’ve likely experienced before. Enticing red fruit aromas, powerful flavors, and a long spicy finish.
Cadence Coda – Produced by one of Washington’s most award winning wineries, this rich red blend is perfect for drinking with holiday roasts. Aromas of black cherry, herb, black currant, anise, and spice. The palate is rich and structured, loaded with dark fruit flavors and firm tannins. Beautiful today but also cellar worthy for up to 10 to 15 years.
Mont Reaga Fata Morgana – Dark… mysterious… enchanting… Mont Reaga Fata Morgana Late is an experience unto itself. Intense, sweet and floral nose delivering aromas of quince, dried figs, raisins, blueberries and chocolate. Full-bodied with a rich, lush texture and just the right amount of sweetness, it is a perfect pairing for foods such as cheese, foie gras, and chocolate. Serve lightly chilled (55º F).
Jeeper Grande Reserve Champagne – A brilliant pale gold color. Mineral and floral aromas. Silky-smooth, lively and fruity in the mouth, with citrus notes. A powerful start and a long finish. An extremely refined champagne. (And, yes, the name is related to Jeep vehicles!)
