Portugal


Bonavita White Bonavita White $10.00

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.



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.



Vale do Bomfim Vale do Bomfim $13.00

From grapes usually reserved for Port, Portugal is fully capable of creating decent, affordable red wines. This one shows some sour cherry and dried plum on the nose. The flavor is rich and spicy and a little gamey but it finishes clean. Big enough to stand up to BBQ or burgers.



Armas de Guerra Mencia Armas de Guerra Mencia $13.00

An excellent introduction to Bierzo's native varietal, the palate is fresh, elegant, and clean. Energetic aromas of fresh blue fruits, violet and white pepper, plus a subtle touch of licorice. Supple and gently sweet on the palate, offering sappy boysenberry and floral highlights with a hint of smokiness.



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. This one has been lightly filtered and does not require decanting and can be served as an aperitif or after dinner. Try it chilled, on the rocks or with a mixer.



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.



Henriques & Henriques Rainwater Madeira Henriques & Henriques Rainwater Madeira $18.00

A lovely surprise, this pale, golden hued wine brings the delicate aromas of almonds, toffee and orange peel. Light and lively on the palate and very drinkable. Buy a bottle to cook with as in to drink while cooking. Lighter and drier than most Madiera.



Ferreira Tawny Porto Ferreira Tawny Porto $18.50

Ferreira Ruby has an intense and well defined ruby hue, full- bodied and rich, it has a fine balance between its sweetness and its tannin structure, giving it unique characteristics and a fine and attractive long finish.



Dow's Late Bottle Vintage 2009 Dow's Late Bottle Vintage 2009 $21.00

A very nice change from syrupy tawnies, this LBV has an elegance with a cleaner and drier profile. Gorgeous candied cherry and plum with a little licorice and fig flavors.



Blandys 10yr Malmsey Madeira Blandys 10yr Malmsey Madeira $28.00

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.



Henriques & Henriques Malvasia Madeira	Henriques & Henriques Malvasia Madeira $44.00

The classic style with Malmsey/Malvasia with surprising balance between acidity and sweetness. Lovely flavors of coffee, nuts, and dried fruit with soft notes of caramel.

    Amon Ra

    The 2014 Amon Ra reflects the tried and true essence of the Glaetzer style - generosity of flavor with finesse of structure. The inky purple color displays the gentle but full extraction.

Although still young and firmly wound, the vibrant blackberry and dried spice flavors integrate well with youthful yet supple tannins with the trademark loooong and sleek finish. Meant to go 10 to 15 years to hit its prime.
