Jane Ventura Cava Rose 2013 (Spain)

reserva_rose_2013.102342$22.50 or $19.99/bottle on 6+

Winery Tasting Notes:
“Pale salmon rosé colour. Bouquet offers up a complex variety of harmonious aromas, with notes of cherries, green apple, strawberry, and cream, pearly minerals and floral perfume. Persistent carbonic strength with small and delicate bubbles.”

Pairing Option: Meat, Veggie, and Cheese Omelet. With all the savory components in that dish, this grenache rose sparkling is a great compliment and stand up to these bold flavors.

This sparkling wine is a pale, golden straw in color. Bubbles are full textured and persistent. On the nose the wine brings fresh citrus with hints of honey and white flowers. The flavor is fresh and clean, with ripe citrus, lemon, green apple, and touches of grapefruit, minerality, and some toast. The finish is light, refreshing, and crisp.”

$29.95bottle or WC Member Discounts Apply

“Wine Spectator” Notes: 91 Points

Winery Tasting Notes:

“Rich, with good intensity to the mix of apricot, nectarine and peach flavors, lined with bitter almond and ginger notes through the lengthy finish. Has weight and zip. Drink now through 2020.”

Pairing Option: French Toast and Bacon. This rieslings high acidity will cut through the fat and syrup to act as a great palate cleanser.







Stars-Like-Ours-2016.114726Stars Like Ours (By Tank) Rose 2017 (California)

$15.95/bottleWine Club Discounts Apply

Winery Tasting Notes:
“Ahh, sunshine in a glass. We’re back with a fresh vintage of rosé that is our juiciest to date. Enjoy aromas of delicate tropical fruits, ripe strawberry, crushed rocks and refreshing grapefruit rind. On the palate, you’ll be sucked in by flavors of white peach, mouth-watering strawberry, subtle citrus and green melon. Bright tangy acidity and clean minerality make this wine lively, playful and delicious.”












St-M.105940Domaine Laroche Chablis “St Martin” 2015 (France)


$24.95/bottle or $19.95/bottle on 6+

“Wine Advocate” Notes: 90 Points

“The 2015 Chablis St Martin has what you might describe as a “dainty” nose at first, a little timid, but it soon finds it voice courtesy of its apple blossom and fresh pear aromas, perhaps with a hint of peppermint in the background. The palate is well balanced with a crisp line of acidity. I appreciate the tension of this Chablis: taut and linear, quite saline in the mouth and this serves to prolong the finish. This is a well-crafted and very delicious Chablis from Gregory Viennois and his team. This comes recommended.”

Pairing: This wine would be great with an cheese and onion quiche. The crisp acidty and brightness helps cut through the egg and cheese components.
