Wines of the Month

 Many of you are already familiar with our very popular Wines of the Month Club. Below are the wines we packed for our members – this was the mixed half case of three white and three reds. The wines are discounted, and each one has been tasted an approved by us, here at the store. It costs nothing to join, and you have a choice of all red, all white, or the combo (which most people select.)

Casal Garcia Vinho Verde, Portugal

Typical Portuguese white blend, this Vinho Verde is crisp and fruity. A perfect pre-meal wine; it’s delicate and fresh, and would pair well with light dishes, salads, and uncomplicated seafood. 


Drei Dona Sauvignon Blanc, Italy 2018

Drei Dona Sauvignon Blanc, Italy

Vinified and aged exclusively in steel, this is a crisp dry white with clean citrus notes both on the palate and nose. Salads, seafoods, and light poultry dishes are a perfect accompaniment to this wine. Or, of course, by itself, on the porch, facing east, making believe you’re in Castrocaro, Italy.

Dexter’s Chardonnay, California 2017

WHITE Sélections: Casal Garcia Vinho Verdi, Portugal NV

RED Selections: Chateau Cazerac Cahor Malbec, France

 Dexter’s Chardonnay, California

This soft chard is a limited engagement out of the North Coast, and is ever so slightly buttery, with an easy finish. It’s not too oaky so won’t interfere with most cuisine. Great with cheeses, and of course, sea food.

Chateau Cazerac Cahor Malbec, France

Bold, somewhat tannic, dry, and moderately acidic, this wine falls right where it should in the category of French Malbecs. Serve with beef, lamb, and very aromatic poultry.

Meritage was an invention of the California vintners more than 20 years ago to combat the insurgence of the Bordeaux wines from France. In order to label the wine as such, each winery needs to be a part of the Meritage Association and pay dues. They must also use only the wines of Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot). In addition, they must use at least two of these grapes and can combine up to all five. This beauty shows blackberries, cherries and plums!
