Writers Block Roussanne

This Roussanne shows varietal aromas and flavors of apricots, pear, some mint and green tea-leaf. Notes of herbal tea, honey and pear with hints of honeysuckle and vanilla are the aromas and flavors you find in this Roussanne. Typical of white varietals from the Rhone Valley, this wine has a viscous texture to its mouth feel.

Langman Heaven’s Kiss Black Muscat

This supersweet and high-alcohol dessert wine is deep brown in color, offers candied fruit and rose-petal aromas followed by toasted nut and caramel flavors that linger a long time on the finish.

Nicole’s Pick’s

Columbia Crest H3 Cabernet Sauvignon

Aromas of Plum Cherry and Smoke. This bold Cabernet opens with Black Cherry and BlackBerry with a touch of vanilla. Flavors intertwine on the palate with a narrow finish. Pairs well with tomato based sauces, intense and rich foods such as grilled meats or pot roast and strongly flavored cheeses.

Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio

Dry with intense aroma of apple and citrus with a long multi-layered finish. Medium body and pairs well with salad, chicken and grilled fish.

Lamarca Prosecco

Aroma of fresh citrus honey and white flowers. Lively and mouth filling, has hints of ripe lemon and white peach. This sparkling wine perfect on it’s own, in a bubbly cocktail or in a mimosa. Rich Galera grapes make it perfect for a Sunday brunch, but has the body and acidity to pair well with a range of foods. Seafood, citrus cream sauce, salad beef or Gorgonzola.

Jon’s Picks

Juggernaut Cabernet Sauvignon

French oak beautifully transforms intense hillside fruit into a wine with uncommon richness and smooth texture. Juggernaut Hillside Cabernet is a wine that is fierce, brave, and delicious.
The harsh environment causes the vines to struggle, yielding fewer clusters and smaller berry size. The result is berries that are loaded with rich, ripe, intensely concentrated flavors and complexity.

The Ned Sauvignon Blanc

Tropical and vibrant aromas of lime zest, lemongrass, passion fruit with underlying notes of minerality and fresh herbs. A lively combination of passion fruit and crisp green apple flavours are drawn across the palate by a pristine mineral acidity.

Langman’s Robert’s Muscat Canelli

This is an off-dry wine, or a wine that has such bright fruit on the pallate it fools your tastebuds into thinking that there is a touch of sweetness in it. This crisp, lovely wine offers fresh notes of ripe melons, peach and perfumed honeysuckle with a delicate kiss of sweetness. It has a much wider food-pairing spectrum v.s. a Sauvignon Blanc or a Chardonnay. The Cure!

Silk and Spice Red Wine

90 points Wine Enthusiast! The most recent review won Silk & Spice a spot among the magazine’s Top 100 Best Buys, at #15!

Winemaker notes – Intense, deep ruby color, with a bright red rim. The predominant flavors are ripe, cooked black fruit with sweet notes of vanilla and hints of mocha. The first impression in the mouth is rich and full. Excellent balance of tannins and acidity, with a long, smooth finish.

The balanced profile of this wine and the easy tasting it provides makes it suitable to be enjoyed while dining outside. It is also wonderful when paired with grilled meat and cheeseburgers.

Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaker notes – Fresh and juicy with ripe, tropical flavors of passion fruit, melon, and stone fruit. Each sip of wine reveals classic Marlborough sauvignon blanc aromas of lifted citrus, tropical fruit, and crushed herbs, along with vibrant acidity and plenty of weight and length on the palate. Enjoy with fresh oysters, asparagus, lobster, or a light salad.

Roscato Rosso Dolce

Winemaker notes – An irresistible, delicately sweet, gently fizzy red wine from the northern Italian region of Lombardy. Roscato makes a wonderful aperitif and is also incredibly food-friendly. Roscato seamlessly combines a long-held grape growing tradition with the flair of modern winemaking techniques and style. The result is a wine of enticing character that perfectly meets the surging demand for sweet red blends. With a low alcohol of 7% and just a touch of sparkle to flawlessly balance the sweetness, Roscato is the ideal complement for today’s cuisine. Enjoy it with tomato-based sauces, classic Italian dishes, spicy foods and more.
