RED WINES –

Light bodied reds

2020 Sauvette Gamay Les Gravouilles France $12/48

Wait another one?  Yes we did, two Loire Valley takes on the Gamay grape, this one having more richness fuller body then the Sauvette.

A classic producer showing the pedigree of Morgon, perhaps the best village in Beaujolais?  Thick dark cherry, but also check out the label where the artwork shows their tasting notes!

2019 Peay Pinot Noir Savoy Anderson Valley $149

2019 Hirsch Pinot Noir Bohan Dillon Sonoma Coast $105

The pioneer of the Sonoma coast wine appellation this bottling is big and bold and dark and brooding.

Medium bodied

2019 Cusumano Benuara Nero d’avola Sicily, Italy $50

2021 Adelante Malbec Argentina $11/44

Old vine Malbec from Argentina showing its best here.  Blueberry and dark black round soft fruits.  If you like big wine, you are going to love this.
