A lovely eclectic surprise. These grapes you've never heard of creates an exotic and tropical nose of apricots and peaches, with wonderful lemony undertones. Very light and fresh melon on the palate. A lively and well-balanced wine that goes with about anything light, especially seafood. Arinto , Fernão Pires , Moscatel , Rabo de Ovelha.



Bonavita Red Bonavita Red $10.00

Made from four grapes harvested later than usual to achieve a greater ripeness and smoothness. A deep and inky wine, with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. Nice ripe fig and cherry with chocolate and licorice flavors. Just enough oak to give it some backbone.



Bread and Cheese red Bread and Cheese red $10.00

A fun little Portuguese blend for 10 bucks! Syrah dominant bringing those violets and black fruits, a little bit of peppery spice and structure. The othe two grapes bring more rounded fruit and softness to the blend. A great bottle for an everyday drinker.



Lab Red Lab Red $10.00



Anjos Vinho Verde Anjos Vinho Verde $11.00

The perfect summer-time wine, light and slightly bubbly, but crisp and dry. Tastes almost like a margarita with wonderful green apples and a crisp lemon-lime acidity. The only problem? The bottle disappears too quickly, I suggest getting a few of these little pretties.



Anjos rose Anjos rose $11.00

Lab Rose Lab Rose $12.00

What do we know about Portuguese wine? Not enough apparently! This rose is an excuse to better acquaint yourself with this country. Very feminine aromas of strawberry and pink mulberry. Bubblegum on the palate with the slightest bit of tannin to give this rose structure. Can we say patio pounder??!?



Armas de Guerra Mencia Armas de Guerra Mencia $13.00

Quinta de la Rosa Tawny Quinta de la Rosa Tawny $17.00

Delicate, soft and creamy, this is a rich and elegant blend with wonderful aromas exuding the heat of the Douro. On the palate it is complex with powerful dried fruit, figs, honey and almonds with a long pleasing finish. It should be consumed within 2 to 3 years of bottling.

Quinta Infantado Ruby Quinta Infantado Ruby $17.00

Still crafted by hand in the valleys of Portugal, this Ruby is elegant and rich with an excellent balance of acid, soft fruit and minimal tannins. While it's classified medium-dry, it is absolutely a sweet wine and this unfiltered, estate-bottled ruby brings a lot to your table. It's priced like a introductory port and while it is, it's got the power and layers of complexity to please even a port snob.



Quinta de la Rosa 601 Ruby Reserve Quinta de la Rosa 601 Ruby Reserve $17.00

Rich with a vibrant color, great depth, body and fruit, with a long finish. Like all La Rosa Ports, not too sweet. It should be consumed within 2 to 3 years of bottling.

All Malmsey from the tiny island of Madeira. This is the missing piece to our dessert menu and a wonderful example of Madeira. Caramel and rich chocolate nose, a coating sweet palate and just the right amount of acidity to wash it away. Dont forget to ask about this wine and our Revolution.



Poco do Lobo Poco do Lobo $32.00

Always on the hunt for the extraordinarily geeky, we are pleased to present Poco do Lobo! The dominant grape is one native to Portugal, called Baga.

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo.

The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. (behind by 2 bottles)
