New Arrivals with "Weekend George"


New Arrivals
"Weekend George"
Saturday, August 27th

You have met "Weekend George", haven't you????

Clos Blancheau Chardonnay '09
Brand new on the scene, from 30-year-old vines on Paso Robles famed James Berry Vineyard, this Chard promises to be one of the great obscurities from the West Coast.

Schloss Saarstein Riesling '08
From the steep slopes of the Mosel river valley, this crisp, mineral, semi-dry Riesling has exceptional acids, and makes one thirsty just discussing it.

Valli Unite Dolcetto Diogene '08
Just delicious, simple, organically-farmed Dolcetto from the Colli Tortonesi DOC in Piedmont. No sulfites added.

Ruca Malen Petit Verdot Reserva '09
How often do you see a varietal Petit Verdot, let alone one from Argentina? Dense, intense, and on the offense. Unique stuff.

Don David Tannat Reserva '09
While we're at it, we'll throw in another unlikely Argentina red…..a Tannat! Normally associated with France or Uruguay, expect a black, tannic beast.

Red Heads Studio The Moonlighters '07
No, this has nothing to do with Maddie Hayes and David Addison. It's a gutsy Aussie blend of Cab, Petit Verdot and Tannat from a fun group of people.
