Wines We Pour

Champteloup Sauvignon Blanc 2012

A popular bright, crisp Sauvignon Blanc with depth, elegance and a full-flavored grassy-lemon freshness. Touraine wines represent some of the best value examples of Sauvignon Blancs from anywhere in the world.

Keo Chardonnay 2012

A rich and creamy chardonnay from La Rioja Argentina, a mile high valley in the Andes.  These old world vines are tranformed into new world wines with complexity and charm.

Chateau Monestier La Tour Rouge 2012

A Bordeaux red blend from one of our favorite wine makers, Michele D'Aprix, the only american woman vintner in bordeaux.  Chateau Monestier is, in a word, balance. A blend of 65% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec. You might think that "balance" is a throw away wine talk descriptor until you taste an unbalanced wine! It is this balance that makes the wine smooth so that the flavors are all smoothly there without jagged edges and starts that go nowhere.

Keo Cabernet 2011

A fruity blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.  Notes of blackberries, dried fruit and spices give this blend structure and depth.  From the same wine maker as our chardonnay, a mile up in the Andes.  You can't make this anywhere else!
