Enjoy in the wine bar. Pay retail price. Perfect for two or three. We suggest:
32.00
Bubbles
Diebolt-vallois champagne blanc de blancs, a cramant, from the chalky champagne soils of the côte de blancs. This is very minerally with lemon zest, green apples, spring flowers and grapefruit flavors. This is “light on its feet” and particularly complex. It’s a great example of côte de blancs grower champagne.
40.00
Billecart Salmon Champagne Brut Rose 375 Ml
Roughly equal parts pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier from farmed vineyards throughout champagne. All steel fermented and aged. 2005, ’04 and ’03 cuvée. So solid: a mixture of white peach, meyer lemon, wild raspberry, honeysuckle…a little creamy, perfect smack of acidity and undeniably delicious!
15.00
Crisp White
Domaine cailbourdin pouilly fume "les cris" 2010 "les cris" are "the screams," as in "this wine screams of terroir. " This is a classic, wonderful expression of loire valley sauvignon blanc with its chalky, super-crisp, zippy personality. Not tart though, just full of yellow citrus, green apple and quince flavors. Lemon thyme, tart applesauce finish.
49.00
Rich White
Vincent girardin corton charlemagne 375 ml 2005 benchmark, grand cru white burgundy. Nose is sexy, lightly toasty oak, lemon zest, quince, fresh pineapple and “minerality.” taste is lean but powerful. White peaches, granny smith apples, tropical notes, stones. “Manages to be both exotic and austere,” reports wine critic steve tanzer. We agree!
20.00
Elegant Red
Melville pinot noir "estate" santa rita hills 2009 melville makes benchmark pinot from santa rita hills, western santa barbara county, near the pacific. Lovers of nicely spicy, fruit-forward and supple pinot noir will dig this. Smell and taste sweet red cherries, spicy cranberry sauce, black tea, cola and kalamata olive. Full-bodied for pinot, modest oak, medium acidity. Roast your bird of choice, crack a bottle and enjoy.
29.00
Big Red
Red mare cabernet sauvignon napa valley 2009 rich, silky, delicious-now 100% cabernet sauvignon from oakville and spring mountain vineyards. Subtle toasty oak and bright sweet red cherry nose. Taste sweet plums, cassis, vanilla and cocoa. Juicy and well-balanced. Medium/full body, medium tannins, good acidity. All the flavors and textures are well-proportioned. 800 cases made.
12.00
Earthy and Hearty Red
Domaine le colombier vacqueyras "vieilles vignes" 2009 80% grenache, 20% mourvedre. Fermented and aged in concrete vats. Fruit-forward and impressively rich, this young southern rhone is good to decant for 20 minutes and then enjoy. Boysenberries, framboise, peppercorns, pumpkin pie spice, black licorice. Boasts strong tannins with ample fruit to balance them.
29.00
Something Sweet?
Cargasacchi late harvest pinot grigio "invincible sun - jalama vineyard" santa barbara county 375 ml 2009 just-shriveling grapes are cut from the vine but not removed right away, so they sun-dry in the vineyard. Loaded with smells and flavors of apricots, pineapple and caramel. Good acidity in this rich, strong dessert wine.
...And Many More. The Selections Change Often!

Melodie by laura chenel an "american original" ash-rinded, aged cheese, made exclusively in sonoma with fresh goats milk from local dairies. Its mild and creamy texture and floral flavors pair wonderfully with a nice, un-oaked chardonnay or a lovely bottle of champagne to highlight the delicate and subtle flavors that this wonderful cheese has to offer.
Roncal
A hard, creamy sheep's milk cheese made in one of seven villages in the valle de roncal in spain
