  • 07 V. Sattui Black-Sears Vineyard Howell Mountain Zinfandel (Napa Valley): Hey, U want some tasty, brambly Zin with that black pepper? $40 B #
  • NV Elyssia Pinot Noir Brut (Cava): Let's get reeeeaaaaaaady to ruuuuummmmmble (in the red raspberry bubble jungle). $18 B- #
  • 07 Vigne Regali "La Lus" Albarossa (Monferrato Rosso): Red berry & slightly tough love child of Barbera, Nebbiolo & a bit too much oak $30 B #
  • 09 Bouké Perlant (New York): NY's refreshing, pear-infused answer to Vinho Verde. It wants slightly-spicy Asian food. Right now. $17 B- #
  • 07 Kimmel Merlot (Mendocino): Has a lot (anise, chocolate, herbs) going on, if you can get past the "puts hair on yer chest" factor. $42 B+ #
  • 09 Bouquet White Dessert Wine (Long Island): Comes on feminine (lychee but watch out for her tough, bitter (lemon rind) side. 375 mL $37 B #
  • 08 Persimmon Creek Seyval Blanc (Georgia): Lively citrus marred by bitter finish. Might get U wondering if GA is onto something tho. $22 C+ #
  • 07 Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (Alexander Valley): Big but gorgeous w/ cocoa, mint & currant. Built to last, & a bargain $45 B+ #
  • 08 Cru Chardonnay (Arroyo Secco): A great big ball of (surprisingly food-friendly) passion fruit/mango/pineapple butterscotchery. $27 B #
  • 07 Sartori Regolo (Rosso Veronese): Like trying to eat beguiling dried cherries… while standing firmly in some stinky barnyard muck. $19 C #
  • 09 Sartori Ferdi (Bianco Veronese): A bit off-the-beaten-path, but beating a lively lychee-&-apricot-infused path to your taste buds. $14 B #
  • 07 Vinos y Viñedos Dominio Lasierpe "Flor de Lasierpe" Garnacha Vinas Viejas (Navarra): A bit oaky but más que preparado para tapas! $18 B #
