Enjoy one of our Featured Wines

                                                                                                                      Glass                 Bottle

Irony Pinot Noir (Monterey, CA. 2011)                                        $8                      $28

    Leads with red cherry, ripe strawberry and vanilla aromas, heightened by an earthy under 

    current of sage. The lush, supple tannins found in this medium-bodied Pinot Noir are beautifully 

    balanced with fresh, crisp acidity. 

 

Dead Bolt Red (Hopland, CA. 2011)                                     $7.75                   $27

    A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Petite Syrah and Syrah varietals from 

    California. The wine  features a red fruit aroma and flavors of black cherry, mocha and brown 

    spice .

 

Joel Gott Chardonnay (Napa Valley, CA. 2011)                   $9.50                   $33

    Unoaked Chardonnay with bright citrus aromas of mandarin and lime that lead to more floral 

    aromas of vanilla and honeysuckle. On the palate, stone fruit and apple flavors are balanced by a 

    clean, bright acid backbone with a rounder midpalate and minerality finish.

 Parducci Pinot Gris (Mendocino, CA. 2012 )                             $7                       $23

A crisp, dry white wine exhibiting enticing pear, white peach and floral aromas, with subtle hints of 

mango and sweet coconut. Its rich peach and tropical fruit flavors. Excellent pairing to any  fish.
