December Wine Specials

Featuring Brunello, Bordeaux, Pinot Noir & Merlot from the world’s best wine regions.

Featuring Brunello, Bordeaux, Pinot Noir & Merlot from the world’s best wine regions.

As we enter into the final month of 2020, we reflect on a year that has been unlike any other. A year that has changed our normal rhythms of life and in many ways forced us to simplify and return to the basics. In that spirit, this month we wanted to return to the basics of wine – Bordeaux from France, Brunello from Italy, Merlot from California, and Pinot Noir from Oregon. Each of these wines pair well with food and set the tone for reflection and contemplation. They are also each from the 2015 vintage, giving us another chance to reflect on where we’ve been and more importantly where we are going. We thank you for entrusting us with your wine selections this year and in the future. Happy New Year!

2015 Casanova Di Neri, Brunello

Tuscany, Italy

There’s beauty and drinkability to this wine that really is enticing with blueberry and cherry aromas, as well as hints of hot stone and licorice.

Pair with: Tuscan-style steak with truffled mushrooms.

 

2015 Château Clarke, Listrac-Médoc

Bordeaux, France

Toasty and generous on the nose, with plenty of pencil shavings and high-end oak finding a counterpoint in spiced plums and black licorice. Silk-textured palate that glides across the tongue and flashes with flavors of currants, blueberries, and the suggestion of cafe mocha.

Pair with: Grilled or roasted lamb with rosemary.

 

2015 Sokol Blosser, Dundee Hills Estate Pinot Noir

Dundee Hills, Oregon

This Dundee Hills Pinot Noir exhibits aromas of leather and spice. The palate is rich with dark fruit, dried currant, and a hint of cinnamon.

Pair with: Beef Wellington, Roast pork with herbs and fennel.

 

2015 Mayacamas, Merlot

Napa Valley, California

The subtle berry, tobacco and fresh-herb aromas are very attractive. It’s full-bodied with soft and round tannins that are chewy and focused. A beautiful, traditional red that shows its mountain origin.

Pair with: Roast turkey, braised short ribs.
