2020 CVNE (Cune) Verdejo Reuda $16.00 $13.60VS
100% Verdejo (Viura)
CVNE is an old winery of Barrio de La Estación, in Haro, founded in 1879. Currently, CVNE manages around 545 hectares, located in the subareas of La Rioja Alta, La Rioja Alavesa and in other denominations of origin. The vines where this winery gets their grapes to produce their wines are planted on clayey-calcareous, clayey-ferrous and alluvial soils, with a predominant Atlantic climate. Cune Verdejo is a white wine made from the Viura grape variety. After soft pressing, fermentation is carried out in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature. It is a fresh, flowery and fruity wine. The white fruit stands out, with pineapple and peach, and herbal notes that are very elegant. In the mouth it is soft and lingering.
2020 Domaine Salvard Cheverny Blanc $18.00 $15.30VS
85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Chardonnay
This classic Cheverny white is made from younger vines planted to chalk, limestone and sandy soils. It was vinified in stainless steel and aged on the lees until bottling. The result is an expressive white with vibrant citrus and stone fruit aromas and flavors, crisp yet lush texture, and lingering minerality on the finish.

Lime zest, orange pith and fennel notes play around the tongue with Mediterranean herbal aromas. Close your eyes, take a sip and you’re instantly transported on a Mediterranean vacation!
2016 Ch. de Cugat Bordeaux Supérieur $16.00 $13.60VS
70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon
A delicious blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Grown on the clay and chalk soils of the vineyard’s oldest parcel of vines. Aged primarily in tank with a few barrel-lots thrown into the blend, this is a well-balanced claret that is perfect for classic bistro fare. The nose is rich, round and inviting, while dense blackcurrant, vanilla, spice and smoke notes converge on the supple full-bodied palate. The tannin is silky and well-integrated, the finish long and persuasive. This wine seriously overdelivers for its price!
2018 Mamete Prevostini “Botonero” Nebbiolo, Valtellina, Italy $23.00 $19.55VS
100% Chiavennasca (Nebbiolo)
Nebbiolo grapes from the terraced vineyards in the province of Sondrio in northern Italy. From altitudes up to 700m and a mix of sand, silt, limestone and granite soils, this was done entirely in stainless steel, where it remained for 8 months post-ferment. Black cherry, wild cassis, medicinal red currant, perfumed wild strawberry, rose petals all stream through the pure, slender, medium-bodied palate, propped by firm, tightly grippy tannins. Acidity is alpine brisk, and the finish lingers. An alluring and finessed approach to this brilliantly belligerent grape and an explosion of alpine freshness in a glass!
2020 Fond Cyprès “Premier Jus” Vin de France $25.00 $21.25VS
Carignan and Grenache
The Fond Cyprès domaine begins at the end of a road lined with Cypress trees and extends in either direction across 15ha of lush vegetation, a secret garden of olives, tomatoes, eggplants, wild herbs and newly-born kittens. This is a lovely blend of Carignan and Grenache that’s a lighter red that is perfect for the change into a cooler season.
