Marlo Sauvignon Blanc, California   Grapes for our Sauvignon Blanc were drawn from primarily from vineyards in California’s North Coast, primarily from across Lake County, as well Napa and Sonoma Counties, resulting in a Sauvignon Blanc that displays elegance, high acidity and concentration of flavors.  The wine was fermented in stainless steel with neutral yeasts, to preserve the aromatic and floral aromas and capture the essence of the Sauvignon Blanc fruit. A dash of Muscat adds fruity, floral notes to the aroma and palate.  Try it with fried chicken or grilled Cod.

Domaine du Vieux Chene “Cuvee Friande” VdP de Vacluse Blanc, Rhone France    Cold fermentation and hands-on viticulture result in a fresh, lively white with exotic aromatics; honeysuckle, honeydew, verbena, lemon zest and talc.  Medium-bodied and spritzy, this wine shows a palate of almond and peach along with a curtain call by the bouquet troupe.  Meanwhile, a solid spine of bright acidity braces up the mouth feel and a bit of musk in the finish adds some oomph and keeps the wine vital and alive.   This wine is a great match for any dish with a cream based sauce.

Opalia Merlot, Pays ‘d Oc, Languedoc France     Opalia produces high quality wine from the Languedoc with a purity that reflects the terrior from personally owned vineyards. They have established close relations with some of the best vineyards and worked with them to get the best possible fruit.   The vines are sourced from 15 to 40 year old vines and all wines see 4-6 months in new and secondary oak. This merlot is fruit driven and has an intense nose, with thyme, pepper and vanilla hints.  Perfect with grilled and barbecued meats, and dishes with a tomato base.

Dominio de Eguren “Codice” Vino de la Tierra de Castilla, Spain    This Wine Enthusiast Magazine "Best Buy" is 100% Tempranillo from the home of Don Quixote,  Castilla - La Macha.  Stephen Tanzer gave this wine 90 points: "Bright violet color.  Black and blue fruit aromas are lifted by a peppery nuance and a hint of fresh flowers, with juicy boysenberry and mocha flavors and a bracing kick of spiciness.  Finishes silky and precise, with lingering spiciness and smooth tannins.  An off-the-charts value."  This is a great wine to have with just about anything off of the grill.

Cameron Hughes “Lot 464” Old Vine Zinfandel, Lodi California    Another Wine Enthusiast Magazine "Best Buy".  This old vine zinfandel exhibits dark berries on the nose, with hints of chocolate, incense smoke, and tantalizing of spice aromas. The palate delivers beautifully, with flavors of dark fruit, toasty spice, and a touch of licorice. Chocolate bass notes complete the package. Clearly a lot of new oak on this wine, but beautifully integrated. The end result is darkly hued and beautifully aromatic. This wine is the ideal match for pulled pork BBQ.

Chateau Couronneau Bordeaux Superieur   Long time Cork 'n Cap patrons and wine tasting attendees will recognize this wine as one of our all time best selling wines from Bordeaux and is a key member of Rick Collett's Peerless Wine Selections portfolio.  It is 100% Merlot and certified organic. Aged 12 months in oak cask, it starts with notes of blackcurrant and strawberry and is backed up with elegant soft tannins.  This wine is the perfect partner for lamb, prime rib, or a steak off of the grill.
