Banfi Le Rime Pinot Grigio 2016
Pale straw in color, the wine offers impressive rich, ripe fruit aromas that hint of pear and white flowers. The wine is well balanced with an unusually lively acidity.
Le Rime takes its name from the lines that form on the sloping vineyard floor as water washes down the hillside, much as the ebb tide leaves its mark on the sandy beach. This Pinot Grigio catches that fresh minerality inherent to the terrain of southern Tuscany. The exclusive use of free-run juice at fermentation, followed by cool temperature fermentation and early bottling, makes the wine brilliant, vibrant, and appealingly fresh.
A splendid aperitif and a delightful complement to antipasto, pasta, and light meals.

La Crema Monterey Chardonnay 2016
On the nose, the 2016 La Crema Monterey Chardonnay shows Meyer lemon, passionfruit, grilled pineapple and pie crust. On the palate, nectarine, papaya and crisp lemon-tangerine notes are complemented by a touch of spice, complex minerality. Balanced acidity lingers on a long finish.
quickly-seared flounder accented with a toss of al dente bean sprouts, Dungeness crab or pan-sautéed petrale sole, Manchego Cheese.

François Millet Rosé 2016 Sancerre, Loire, France
The Millet family’s history in Sancerre dates back to the 1930s. This Pinot Noir-based wine, the most serious of the rosés that the family produces, is a ripe strawberry-flavored wine with a tangy, bitter-cherry edge.
Produced in tiny quantities, François rosé Sancerre offers a shiny, salmon pink colour and aromas of wild strawberries and spring blossom. The texture on the palate is very moreish, with an almost strawberries-and-cream quality. Fruit flavours are very much to the fore here with a luscious finish.
paëlla, minestrone, bouillabaisse, summer salads, barbecue

Alias Pinot Noir 2015 California
100% Pinot Noir
Dusty ruby color. Mild aromas of cherry, roasted pepper, and putty with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a brisk blood orange and whole nuts finish with papery tannins and light oak. A carefree table wine.
A rather impressive wine for the price. Sourcing from mostly the Mendecino region as well as Sonoma. This wine offers ripe and pretty pinot fruit with great balance and freshness.
This is a perfect wine to enjoy on its own, and can also pair with any chicken or pork dish, and just about anything else.

Montana Crianza 2015 Rioja,Spain
97% Tempranillo and 3% Graciano
Spice and leather complement the deep blackberry fruit and ferrous minerality of Rioja’s red soils. Mouth-filling yet fresh, with the structure for improving in the bottle for a number of years.
Roasted chicken breast stuffed with peppers, caramelized onions, and goat cheese. Herb encrusted New York Strip Steak, Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Fattoria di Lucignano Colli Fiorentini Chianti 2015 Tuscany, Italy
Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino & Merlot
Medium intensity ruby red. The nose on this wine is intense, overflowing with fruity aromas of black cherry and violets. Soft and medium bodied on the palate it balances rather present tannins with moderate acidity. An ideal accompaniment to pasta dishes, medium aged cheese.
