Edmunds St. John ‘Bone-Jolly’ Rosé 2019
This wine is a lively and electric rosé of Gamay from the high elevation (2,800ft) Witters and Barsotti vineyards in the Sierra Foothills of Northern California. The cool mountain nights preserve the acidity and the fresh aromatics of tart watermelon, cranberry, white peach, and orange peel.
Reserva Do Monte Tinto 2015
This is a ripe, red fruit-driven red wine from the Lisboa region of Portugal, where the Atlantic breezes reach the Jurassic soils of the vineyards. Youthful tannins will soften quickly to give a rounded wine, one with a rich-textured palate but showing assertive acidity that arrives on the finish. This Tinto is ready to drink now.
La Fiera Soave 2018
This Soave, from the Veneto region of Italy, is a blend of 80% Garganega,10% Trebbiano,10% Chardonnay. Bright and fresh on the nose, nuanced aromas of pear, apple, and lime zest transfer to the palate, joining a backbone of structured minerality with a clean finish.
French Pool Toy White 2019
85 Points Wine Enthusiast
This wine, in its recyclable plastic eco-friendly bottle, is a blend of grapes found in the Gascony region of southwestern France. Touches of honey and creamed apples contrast with the grassy, herbal edge. Perfect for your next picnic, canoe, hiking, or pool-side adventure.
Guerrieri Rizzardi Bardolino Classico 2017
This Bardolino Classico from the historic house Guerrieri Rizzardi employs similar grape varietals to its neighboring region, Valpolicella. Notes of red berries and spice on the nose lead to a dry, round palate with good acidity. Serve slightly chilled with vegetarian or white-meat-based dishes including chicken, turkey, pork, or rabbit.
Inconnu ‘Lalalu’ Chardonnay 2018
Laura Brennan Bissell creates a layered California Chardonnay that is grown in alluvial clay loam soils, with native fermentation, and aged on lees in stainless steel (and a few neutral barrels). Notes of lemon, white rose, and granny smith apple with honeydew, chamomile, green hay, cardamom, and herbal tea. A delightfully unique wine.
