July’s 6 for $60

Nono  :  White Blend
Vinho Verde DOC, Portugal

A blend of 50% Loureiro, 40% Arinto, and 10% Trajadura, Raquel Santos and Joana Cunha made this wine to honor their grandfathers born in the Vinho Verde region. A rich bouquet of citrus fruit, lychee and passionfruit develops into a fresh and fruity palate, balanced by soft minerality. Try with delicate pan seared scallops in a lime and cilantro marinade.

Docampo “Señorío da Vila”  :  Godello
Ribeiro, Spain

A hint of salinity accents notes of ripe white peach on the palate.  Gentle acidity accompanies a touch of lemon zest which persists into an unctuous finish combing citrus with pear and honey. A wonderful match for mussels steamed  with garlic and parsley.

Palissade  :  Merlot Rosé
Atlantique IGP, France

 Bright and vibrant pink in color with a nose of wild flowers, candied fruit, and the essence of strawberry. The palate explodes with notes of bright red fruit and deep floral aromas. A wonderful aperitif on it’s own, this wine is also a perfect complement to  your favorite summer salads.

 

Laudun-Chusclan “La Ferme de Gicon” :  Grenache Noir
Gard IGP, France

Intense flavors of rich cherry and plum entwine with a touch of tannin. Soft with balanced acidity, a hint of black pepper spices the long and smooth mouthfeel. Try with a brick oven eggplant and mushroom pizza.

Altos de Tamaron  :  Tempranillo
Ribera del Duero , Spain

Deep cherry red with purple tones show in the glass, displaying aromas of ripe blackberry and licorice. The palate is silky and fruity along with notes of cigar box and vanilla. The finish is long and well balanced. Serve alongside roasted lamb chops with a rosemary thyme rub.

 

Zonda :  Malbec
San Juan, Argentina

Full bodied and dense, this Malbec is packed with aromas of cassis, plum, and spice. The nose is echoed on the palate along with a touch of lemon zest that keeps the wine in balance. An amazing wine to pair with slow cooked barbecue baby back ribs.
