Alcycone Dessert Wine from Uruguay.
Produced from 15-year-old vines. This dessert wine is touched with a bouquet of winter flowers and bourbon-vanilla with wild apples and mint. A perfect ending to a holiday dinner or gathering.
Sidre Tendre Apple Cider from France.
This is the real deal, this sparkling cider is produced from 100 plus year old apple trees. A Holiday favorite.
Beckmen Cabernet Sauvignon 100% estate bottled from Santa Barbara, California.
With a lush mouth feel and long silky tannins this wine delivers deep, enticing aromas and robust fruit flavors. When holidays are here and your guests are asked what reds would they like, cabs are always in the top two picks.
Corvidae “Mirth “ Chardonnay from Columbia Valley.
Flavors of golden apples, lemon and just a hint of ripe tropical fruit. The wine has a minimal oak influence which allows the excellent fruit character to shine.
Wyatt Pinot Noir.
A medium body wine, sourced from Russian River Valley. This wine will go well with poultry such as turkey, duck, goose, quail and cornish hens. On the nose the wine has lovely aromas of wild strawberry and red plum while the intake is loaded with fruit.
