  • 2017 Square, Plumb & Level Red Blend & 2017 Pinot Noir

    2017 Square, Plumb & Level Red Blend & 2017 Pinot Noir

    $24.99

    The red blend is 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Cabernet Franc from Peterson Vineyard in Sonoma, CA. The Bradford Mountain area was chosen for its gentle minerality, spicy cedar notes and young tannin. As Cabs tend to be produced today, we ensure the final product is not over-extracted or over-oaked. On the flip side, Cabernet Franc is rarely seen as a blending grape and only truly
    embraced in France; this piqued our interest. Our Cab Franc displays notes of dark plum and tobacco with a mildly spicy finish. Best decanted if you wish to consume now, or cellared and consumed 10 years from now. SPL is best paired with medium to hearty meats and game, grilled veggies, and ragout dishes.

  • 2017 Tentadora Malbec, Argentina

    2017 Tentadora Malbec, Argentina

    $17.99

    This wine displays blueberry and blackberry mélange with notes of spice and earth, and a smooth succulent core of fruit that broadens into a velvety finish. The color is inky black, and soft and well-resolved tannins are
    seamlessly integrated into the finish. In true Argentine fashion, the 2017 Tentadora Malbec is eminently suited to the table, and pairs especially well with roasted meats.

  • 2019 La Croix Belle, France

    2019 La Croix Belle, France

    $16.99

    This blend of Viognier, Grenache Blanc and Chardonnay, displays golden yellow color with greenish reflections. Medium-high intensity on the nose, with floral aromas and hints of white fruits. It is a clean, elegant aroma. On the palate, the wine is refreshing, extensive, well rounded with a marked aromatic persistence.
