Argentina


Cautivo Torrontes Cautivo Torrontes $10.50

This is a young wine with a pale lemon green color,semi sweet to start off. Smells of flowers and herbs,and a touch of apricot and minerality to finish up.We love this obscure wine to drink on the patio, or just to make our moods better. Ahh....



Toso Toso $11.00

The cool nights at Mendoza's elevation mean there's more than Malbec possible here. This 100% Chardonnay based bubbly offers delicious apple and pear flavors as well as a subtle touch of yeasty fresh baked bread. Soft and creamy on the palate, this is very easy to drink and enjoy. This drinks sooo easily and is ideal for holiday parties.



Colome Torrontes Colome Torrontes $13.00

A remarkable grape, unique to Argentina resulting from a cross of Muscat and the Mission grape. Glorious, rich aromatic nose leads into a solid bodied wine with perfect crisp brightness. Sometimes flabby, this one from mile-high vineyards shows great balance and character. Try with spicy Mexican fare or oily fish for a unique and wonderful pairing.



Mythic Mountain Malbec Mythic Mountain Malbec $14.00

Elegant and fruit forward wine with purple red tone, bright aromas of fresh fruit and subtle vanilla undertones. Sweet in the mouth with a pleasing mid-palate experience and soft, round tannins leading to a persistent finish.



Durigutti Bonarda Durigutti Bonarda $16.00

Everyone knows Malbec now but Argentina grows almost as much Bonarda (they keep to themselves!). Dense and rich dark fruit, a touch of spice, and a big mouth feel. Nice structure but easy drinking. This grape originally comes from Italy and shows black pepper, clove, and soft earth. Bright acidity holds it together and makes this pair with steak or spicy foods.



Malma Finca La Papay Malma Finca La Papay $16.00

From the small, cool climate region of Patagonia in Argentina comes this elegant and smooth Pinot Noir. This light, easy drinking red is bursting with cherry, raspberry, and a touch of vanilla from six months in oak. This is a relatively new region for wine, so buy these up now before people find out and the price doubles, it can be our little secret!



Finca a Moras Barrell Select Malbec Finca a Moras Barrell Select Malbec $17.00

Wow, yes there is cheaper Malbec. There is cheaper everything. This is a focused, complex, intense wine that shows the high altitude with a core of acidic balance. Powerful sweet plum and blackcurrant fruit support a dark mocha and light vanilla stucture and the very full bodied taste loaded with spice and blackberries. The finish is long, lingering and velvety smooth. A great wine with anything coming off the grill.



Mythic Chard Viognier Mythic Chard Viognier $19.00

A very remarkable blend. The chard brings body and acid while the viognier brings its magical aromatics. A bit of French oak shows through as well. Its Condrieu meeting white Burgundy and somehow it's everything in one bottle, soft floral, buttery oak, zesty acidity, good body. Enjoy this one because I doubt I will ever find another like it!



Colome Malbec Colome Malbec $29.00

From the oldest winery in Argentina and the highest vineyards in the world. Elegant, robust and extremely well crafted malbec from vineyards at 8500 ft, 7500 ft and 5700 ft that each bring their own qualities to the finished product. Great with any grilled meat, especially prime rib and even filet. This wine is definitely brighter than most and its acidity is a perfect foil for the rich fruit.



Matilde Gran Reserva Malbec Matilde Gran Reserva Malbec $62.00

From 85 year old vines in a single vineyard in Lujan de Cujo comes a monster. Big menthol, mint, blackberry and coconut nose. Flavors of spice, licorice, blackberry in a dense inky body. A cellar candidate for sure but smooth and powerful today after 2 years on French oak. Still holding on to some acidity somehow, a last meal accompaniment to a perfect ribeye.

  • Maimai Syrah

    Maimai Syrah

    So pretty. Brings a clear nose of Gimblett Gravels terroir beneath lush soft blue and black fruit with lovely violet and lavender notes. Palate is clean, balanced and very approachable. Just a hint of the Northern Rhone's meatiness but mostly bright fruit and enough acidity to hold it in check. Maybe the best NZ Syrah out there??

  • Gewurz

    Gewurz

    A CA Gewurztraminer crafted in the style of those from the Alps. Great crisp minerality, rose petal and lychee notes, with bright acidity to hold it together. All organic from the rugged and cooler Potter Valley in Mendocino. Try with grilled chicken or pork chops to see what a great food wine this is!

On a steep hillside (at 1500 ft!) twin sisters Sabine and Isabelle make this earthy, spicy blend of Grenache, Syrah and Counoise. A gorgeous wine.

  • Obsidian Cab

    Obsidian Cab

    A wonderful classic CA Cab with solid structure from the altitude and Hungarian oak. Reserved and dark on the nose with aromas of blackberries, hints of black licorice and coffee. Really nice and elegant. Touch on the masculine side with no jammy, jelly jar junk here. Wonderfully different.
