WINE

MY CONCEPT IS SIMPLE…ALL OF MY WINES ARE CHOSEN TO COMPLIMENT MY HUSBANDS FOOD.

ALL WINES BY THE GLASS OR BY THE BOTTLE WITH A HEALTHY POUR (FOUR GLASSES A BOTTLE)

 AND ALL PRICED THE SAME EITHER WAY….WHAT CAN I SAY?    I LIKE WINE.

 PAUL D., MULLER THURGAU, AUSTRIA, 2015                                                                                                       9 / 36

Like Sauvignon Blanc with apricot replacing the grapefruit.  The wine smells fresh & ripe with notes of white peach & apricot & crushed herb.  It is creamy in texture & loaded with juicy apricot fruit, grassy herb & a hint of lychee.

Produced just north of Sancerre, this wine is fresh with piercing lemon & a light herbal essence.   Sunshine with citrus & crisp acidity.  A real food wine.

 EMBRAZEN, CHARDONNAY, CA, 2016                                                               11 / 44

 A wine to celebrate strong women of the past & made by a woman winemaker.  The luminous, gold tones dazzle in the glass, yet this wine finds its voice in the full-throated expression of rich creamy, honey flavors.

Not your mother’s pinot grigio. intense straw-yellow colour with a light nuance of antique rose. It is intense, full  & fruity, with excellent persistence. Its taste is dry, velvety, & well…..just lovely.

93 pts. Wine Enthusiast.  The Asian pear & peach, and elegant floral engages the taste buds and confirms this delicious Burgundy style of Chardonnay.  Very little French oak allows this wine to shine.

Totally zesty swirls of ripe citrus sweep up green pear and melon notes as they rise from the glass and flow across the palate. This Grunner has verve and liveliness.

 

REDS: 

 LES APHILLANTHES, VAUCLUSE, FRANCE 2016                                     8 / 32

Clear, cherry-inspired with a sunny, open bouquet, heat off the stones, an intense center.  Fine raspberry fruit. The palate is well-packed – the flavour, with the heat of stones in it….. glows.

 STEINDORFER, APETLON ROUGE, AUSTRIA, 2015                       10 / 40

The nose brims with fruit.  Overripe red cherry that sets the tone for the taste.  Juicy but with a cherry fruit  crunch and grip…a touch of white pepper spice & freshness that is alive and vivid. 

AMANCAYA, RESERVE RED BLEND, ARGENTINA, 2015                                                                                     10 / 40

Combining the talents of Domaines Barons de Rothschild & Nicolas Cantena this wine blends Cabernet Sauvignon & Malbec in the most refined way.  Velvety raspberry, white pepper & a slight tabacco finish create a racy edge. 

 THE FABLEIST, PINOT NOIR, CENTRAL COAST, 2017                      11 / 44

Black cherries, blue raspberries, and vanilla Coke. Medium to full palate with a perfectly balanced acidity and a baking spice finish.

 MONTE ZOVO, VALPOLICELLA RIPASSO, ITALY, 2014                                                                                       12 / 48

Ripasso is all the rage these days. This one is full of cherry, herbs & cranberry integrated with spicy pepper. Rich & lush it is made from classic Veronese grapes, “ripassato” over Amarone pomace to lend body & concentration.

 RIVERDITO, BAROLO, ITALY, 2014                                                                                                                            14 / 56
