Wine & Beer Features

Grenache / Syrah
Almira, Campo de Borja, Spain

From slopes on the edge of the Sierra Iberica, just south of Navarra where Garnacha is king, this special cuvée blends 7% Syrah with rich Grenache produced from vines of 35 to 50 years of age. The resultant wine exhibits an elegance rarely encountered in the wines from Campo de Borja. Fermentation is classical, with no carbonic maceration, and aging is wholly in stainless steel. The wine is immediately aromatic, full and friendly on the palate and finishes with a refined length.

$4.25 / glass
$17 / bottle

Cabernet Sauvignon
Robert Mondavi, Napa Valley

This wine has deep, expressive aromas and flavors of berry and black currant with nuances of mocha, violets, and spice. The fruit envelops an elegant structure with firm, velvety tannins and excellent length. The wine's personality comes from the soils and climates of vineyards located in the geographic center of Napa Valley. The wine was aged in French oak château barrels and bottled without filtration to capture the full flavor profile.

$10 / glass
