Raig de Raim Blanco, Garnacha Blanca, Terra Alta, Spain; 2020

$11 │ $42 │ $29.40 – to go

A brilliant gold color, this wine is bright for a California Chardonnay. Fermented 100% in stainless steel it gets a nice roundness from 3 months on the lees. Pineapple upside-down cake, Honeycrisp apple, guava, and key lime with stone fruit undertones on the nose. Juicy yet zesty, rich yet bright, hints of ripe melon and minerals give this wine a little something for everyone.

Aslina by Ntsiki Biyela, Chardonnay, Western Cape, South Africa; 2020

 $14 │ $56 │ $33.60– to go

A complex Chardonnay, creamy, round, and soft. Crushed and pressed, part of the wine was fermented in barrels and part in tank. This gives the wine an edge and ability to show the beautiful tropical fruit and limy character. Slight buttery character showing on the palate. Good acidity balancing the fruit and wood.

J Dusi, Model M – Red Blend, Central Coast, CA; 2018

$10 │ $40 │ $28 – to go

This red wine tout’s black cherry and sweet cigar on the nose, luring you into the

first sip. Its mid-palette explodes triple berry pie with bourbon whipped cream.

The grippy tannic finish flaunts a rich leather handbag and pipe tobacco. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Syrah.

Aslina by Ntsiki Biyela, Cabernet Sauvignon, Stellenbosch, South Africa; 2021

$19 │ $77 │ $46.20 – to go

A full-bodied wine with hints of minty characters, cigar box and lots of dark fruits. Bold palate with chewy tannins. The wine was in wood for 16 months with 45% of the wine in first-fill barrels and the rest in second and third fills. A good balance of wood, acidity, and fruit gives this wine good cellaring potential.
