A Knockout RedPure California cab, and lots of wine for the money. Dark fruit on the nose, with fl avors of black cherries, cassis, tobacco, and eucalyptus. Those bold fruit notes persist through the long fi nish. A steal.
|PAIRING SUGGESTION: Pair this savory cab with grilled or roasted meat. Lamb is a classic pairing.|
Classic California ChardA classic California chard, and criminally underpriced. Ripe orchard fruit on the nose, followed by creamy vanilla on the palate. Honey textured and deee-licious, this is an outrageous value.
|PAIRING SUGGESTION: Serve this full bodied chard with something luxurious: crab cakes, grilled shrimp or tuna, scallops, or lobster.|
Soft, Silky, & Fruit DrivenDrinks like twice the price! Tart cherries and raspberries dance across the palate, followed by a lingering fl oral lift. Showcases all the qualities that only pinot can express. Enjoy this fruit driven pinot with roasted chicken or grilled salmon.
