Chile


Lab White Lab White $10.00



Terrapura Carmenere Terrapura Carmenere $12.00

Lovely soft green pepper nose with mineral and an herbal touch blended with tobacco and flowers. Black fruits and dried figs on the nose combine with soft and juicy tannins and concentrated fresh fruit flavors. Fire up the BBQ and grill some steaks or Portobello mushrooms to eat alongside a glass. It would be great with Mexican food as well with its subtle spice notes.



Lagar de Bezana Lagar de Bezana $14.00

Small production, 2,500 cases a year, high altitude, single vineyard Cab from atop the Cachapoal mountain range in Chile. Showing blueberry, black fruit, bell pepper, vanilla and baking spice. Chewy tannin with a lingering finish. Begging for a ribeye and a fireplace.



Koyle Koyle $14.00



Prisma Prisma $15.00

From the steep, high elevation vineyards of Casablanca, this sustainably farmed Sauv Blanc has everything going its way. Aromatic nose, bright palate, lemon, lime grapefruit and undertones of minerality. Mouth watering deliciousness, pairs excellent with a variety of foods.



Casa Toqui Cabernet Sauvignon Casa Toqui Cabernet Sauvignon $16.00

The world is awakening to Chilean Cab. This one has bright cassis and blackberry fruit with lots of toasty oak. Nicely balanced acidity with the fruit from a cooler but still sunny region in Chile.



Matorral Matorral $19.00

200 year old bush vines are dry farmed to create a robust, deeply concentrated wine among the rolling hillsides of the Maule Valley in Chile. Spicy raspberry and cherry notes, an undertone of savory smoky notes and dried herbs. Medium body with noticeable tannin, natural winemaking style with no filtering.



Polkura Malbec Polkura Malbec $20.00

This Malbec from Chile gives Argentina a run for its money. Deep purple in color with an explosively aromatic nose of black currant, black cherry, mocha, clove and cinnamon. This full bodied wine shows the same dark fruit on the palate and an tight embrace of tannic muscle. Really shines with some fatty beef, this wine is oozing characcter.



Polkura Secano dry farm Polkura Secano dry farm $35.00

Single vineyard Syrah from Chile. Dry farm meaning no irrigation so the roots have to struggle to go deep in the soil for water and nutrients. The result is a totally unexpected wine. Candied peach, melon and subtle red fruits and pepper. One would never guess this is a syrah on a blind tasting. Do yourself a favor and get one!!

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. (behind by 5 bottles)

    Armas de Guerra Mencia

    An excellent introduction to Bierzo's native varietal, the palate is fresh, elegant, and clean. Energetic aromas of fresh blue fruits, violet and white pepper, plus a subtle touch of licorice. Supple and gently sweet on the palate, offering sappy boysenberry and floral highlights with a hint of smokiness.

  • Schieferkopf

    Schieferkopf

    Acid freaks rejoice! This dry Riesling shows the classic stone minerality and petrol on the nose with floral aromatics as well. The palate yields citrus, green apple and stonefruits with mouth watering acidity. A great food wine or one simply just to drink.

  • Gewurz

    Gewurz

    A CA Gewurztraminer crafted in the style of those from the Alps. Great crisp minerality, rose petal and lychee notes, with bright acidity to hold it together. All organic from the rugged and cooler Potter Valley in Mendocino. Try with grilled chicken or pork chops to see what a great food wine this is!

  • Obsidian Cab

    Obsidian Cab

    A wonderful classic CA Cab with solid structure from the altitude and Hungarian oak. Reserved and dark on the nose with aromas of blackberries, hints of black licorice and coffee. Really nice and elegant. Touch on the masculine side with no jammy, jelly jar junk here. Wonderfully different.
