Wine News

There are always items in short supply this time of year but this year even more so due to transportation and supply line issues. Don’t hesitate or wait to give us a call for any special wine requests and we’ll do whatever we can to bring it in.

Dan’s Feature

This week’s feature is from none other than Chuck Wagner of Caymus Vineyard fame. This new release is a 2019 red blend, “The Walking Fool” comes from his property in Suisun Valley and carries the story for the name of this wine on its back label. Described by better palates than mine make note that, “this wine is silky scarlet red with luminous highlights, the wine opens with a lean earthiness—the scent of rustic wood mixes with sweet spice, a whiff of cigar box, dusty pavement and old leather, infused with garden ripe strawberries and cherries. The palate is smooth and lively, featuring flavors of juicy raspberry, the subtle tartness of cranberry, and notes of espresso and smoked meat. Underlying acidity makes this wine mouthwatering, while its tannins lend a gritty yet softly fine texture. On the finish: a trace of vibrant cranberry, luxurious cocoa and an extra kick of spice.“ Yeah, I’m pretty sure that I wouldn’t be able to taste all of those things but I do know that this blend of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah is a crowd pleaser. We had to wait a few weeks to finally get these bottles in and we’re happy to share these $39.99 wines with you as long as we can keep them in stock.

Dan’s Pick

This week's pick is Mer Soleil Silver 2018 Unoaked Chardonnay from who else but…Chuck Wagner. This wasn’t purposely done, but after looking at new wines for the week, this is one we wanted to bring back and share with all of you. We used to always carry this product but somehow it fell off the radar. While many of you still love the oak and butter, this wine is anything but that. Crisp, clean, acidic and refreshing on the palate makes this a great wine to enjoy with appetizers, salads and, of course, seafood. I’m not too far off with my description, here’s what others have said: “The 2018 Mer Soleil Silver Unoaked Monterey County Chardonnay takes excellent advantage of this cool growing region to produce an attractive, stainless steel wine. This wine exhibits pleasing aromas and flavors of ripe fruit, earth, and minerality. Enjoy it with smoked oysters and a citrus-dressed, green salad." Either description satisfies curiosity and tells you that this $15.99 Monterey Chardonnay is something that would pair perfectly with what you’re having.

Food News

Food Feature of the Week

Fresh Certified Angus Beef Tenderloins in this week at $21.99 per pound. If you need one now we’ve got it! Can you save one for Christmas dinner? You bet. These pre-portioned Tenderloins are between 6.5 and 7.5lbs each and are guaranteed good for 35 days in your fridge after the delivery date. These Choice pieces of meat can be broken down into individual Filet Mignon, wrapped in puff pastry for a luscious Beef Wellington or simply seared off and roasted for a fabulous, flavorful and elegant dinner. On another note, our Oyster for the week is Katama Bay from off the coast of Martha's Vineyard. These 3 to 3.5 inch briny beauties will become one of your favorites. As noted on the bag, they’re a “salt bomb with a candy finish”. Having just tried one this morning on their arrival, I believe I may just have met a new best friend.
