We’ll have bread from She Wolf and cheese from Eastern District! Merry Merry!
Pazo de Galegos Albarino, Rias Baixas 2012
Nestled in an inland subzone of Rias Baixas in Galicia in Northwestern Spain, Pazo de Galegos is a family run vineyard that produces only Albarino. The old-vine grapes are harvested at the exact moment of optimal ripeness, resulting in a subtle, elegant wine with delicate fruit and lingering aromas. Cockles, clams, oysters, octopus, and squid are common fare in Galicia, and this white is the perfect match. $24
Pinyolet Garnacha, Montsant 2010
The name “Pinyolet” refers to the limestone pebble soil unique to the upper hills of Montsant where this organic, dry-farmed Garnacha is grown. These special grapes produce a leaner, more feminine style of Garnacha than in other parts of Spain with bright red fruit, minerals, and floral aromatics. Easy to drink and easy to pair, this pretty bottle is sure to please. Drink with red or white meat or grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup! $19
Orto Tinto, Montsant 2011
55% Samso (Carignan), 29% Garnacha, 10% Ull de Llebre (Tempranillo), and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, this hefty, organic blend is a deep, brooding wine, the strong masculine neighbor to the previous wine. Structured and intense, with soft black fruit and subtle, balanced acidity. This is a wine my dad would love, and it’s a real treat with slow roasted red meat and root vegetables. $36
Naveran Cava Brut, 2011
'Tis the season for celebration and this organic vintage Cava is party perfect. Medium sized, persistent bubbles will take you from tree trimming to New Years Eve, and beyond. We love the rich toasty nature of this pretty Cava that is far more delicious than it's humble price tag might suggest. Don't forget, we offer quantity discounts! 5% off 6 bottles, 10% off a cases.
