WINES - (August, 2021)
2020 Adaras Lluvia Blanco, Spain
Sauvignon Blanc (50%), Verdejo (50%). ORGANIC & VEGAN. Adaras Lluvia Blanco. This wine comes from Almansa, Spain (a small village just Southwest of Valencia). This blend gets its freshness and acidity from the Sauvignon Blanc, complemented by great aromatics and length from the Verdejo. An easy, refreshing crowd-pleaser that pairs pairs perfectly Seafood, poultry, light veggie dishes, or on its own.
2019 Alias Pinot Noir, California
This Pinot Noir is a lovely ruby color in the glass. Delicious notes of raspberry and vanilla fill the bouquet, rounded out with softer notes of black cherry, cola, and light minerality. Creamy flavors of raspberry continue onto the palate, met with rich vanilla, lively acid, and a decadent chocolatey finish. This is a perfect wine to enjoy on its own, and can also pair with any chicken or pork dish, and just about anything else.
Jeane Dorsenne Sparkling NV, France
A well-balanced, crisp, refreshing sparkling wine. This wine is perfect for bellini season or Mimosas. Great for celebrations or any occasion, the excellent structure of this wine and crisp refreshing finish has this wine in our top ten values this year. Pair this wine with a late summer afternoon and fresh squeezed Orange juice!
2019 Adaras Aldea Tinto, Spain
