Weekly Wine Specials

Our white wine of the week is Lockwood’s 2009 Chardonnay from California. The vintner’s tasting notes call the wine “pure and elegant.”

Aromas of fresh pineapple and orange blossom are supported by French oak nuances. Flavors of nectarine and white peach fill the front palate as citrus tones and minerality linger on through the finish.  This combination of aromas, flavors and textures create a charming Chardonnay experience. Enjoy this wine with a variety of seafood and chicken dishes.

It’s on special for $20 (regularly $36).

Our red of the week is New Zealand’s 2009 Sherwood Pinot Noir. The winemaker notes, “the 2009 Pinot Noir displays ripe, sweet plum notes with an edge of complexity on the nose. The palate is rich and round supported by fine grain tannins.” As for pairings, the wine is considered “an excellent match for most meat dishes.”

It’s on special for $22.50 (regularly $42). Cheers!
