Emotion Rosé & Marqués de Riscal Reserva

Marqués de Riscal Reserva Crafted from mostly Tempranillo grapes from the Rioja Alavesa region, this wine spends about two years in American oak casks for fresh, fine, elegant flavor. On the palate, this cherry-red wine is full with good structure and elegant tannins.

Substance Cabernet Sauvignon & Louis Jadot Pinot Noir

Substance Cabernet Sauvignon Hand-harvested and aged in French oak, this Charles Smith wine creation comes from the Columbia Valley in Washington. Notes of cassis, black currant and hints of plum dance on the palate, with smoky layers of dark fruit and solid tannins. This wine is brooding and deep with a silky elegance and long finish.

Louis Jadot Pinot Noir From Bourgogne, France, this wine is rich with aromas of baking spice, raspberries and a hint of earth and forest floor. It’s extremely versatile and pairs nicely with poultry, grilled fish and pork.

Michael David Petite Petit & Gouguenheim Malbec-Bubbles Sparkling Wine Rosé

Michael David Petite Petit This Petite Petit is a harmonious blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot. It’s dense, full-bodied and loaded with black fruit and vanilla flavors. The robust tannins are balanced by the softer mouthfeel of Petit Verdot. Flavors of pastry, blueberry, black pepper and vanilla linger through the long finish. Delicious with prime rib.
