Wine Selections
 




 
    Riesling, Clean Slate 2012
         
         Mosel, Germany
    Pleasing aromas of ripe granny smith apple, pear, and spice. Lightly sweet flavorsimage of peach, honeydew melon, pear with lime notes and minerality. Refreshing acidity with a lingering finish.  Thin slate stones in the vineyard  retain heat and reflect them towards the vines to ripen the grapes and provide subtle mineral flavors.  A good match with spicy foods and Asian cuisine. Shrimp. Traditional German dishes such as bratwurst, knockwurst, and weisswurst, esp. with sauerkraut or red cabbage. Cajun.
Shrimp and grits



Truant Old Vines Zinfandel 2010
Four Vines

               California                      
  A longtime favorite!
 Four Vines now calls its Old Vines Cuvee "Truant" and suggests its "wine character."  Truant breaks out of its routine everday confines, and geographical confines.  It's blended fro
imagem multiple appellations throughout California.    77% Zinfandel, 13% Syrah and a little Petite Sirah, Barbera and Sangiovese. Enticing aromas
of dark berries and spicy oak.
Flavors of juicy blackberry, ripe plum and a touch of blueberry. "Generous in fruit flavors, plenty of structure and a velvety finish."
 Grilled steak, sausages, burgers.  Chili.  Korean BBQ. Vegetable Casseroles. Robust cheeses.

  Scythe & Sickle 

           Harvest Ale

                      
Cooperstown,  New York

Scythe & Sickle Harvest Ale is brewed with barley, wheat, oats and rye. Scythe and sickle is a seasonal
image
brew that celebrates the richness of the grain harvest. Brewed with barley, wheat, oats and – in a nod to traditional upstate New York grains – rye, this fine ale i
s malty and creamy on the palate. The flavors of the grains and earth shine through. Enjoy the refreshment of the season and joys of fine brewing.
   12 oz    Seasonal
       5.8%  abv


Ratebeer  95 pts overall; 98 pts style.



 


   
   Barbera d'Asti 2011,
 "Le Orme," Michele Chiarlo
               Piedmont,  Italy                  
      This favorite Barbera is very highly rated vintage after vintage and has been on Wine Spectator's Top 100 list.  It shows fine intensity with ripe red berry and black cherry flavors, an appealing earthiness and a spicy note.  It's matured for 8 months in large French oak casks so there is niimagecely  complex and round with very little  oak flavor.  Pairs very well with pasta with red sauces, chicken, sausages, mushrooms, grilled and roasted red meats. Italian sausages with mushrooms & peppers.  Eggplant Casserole.  Blue Castello .Robust cheeses.


 
  Pinotage"Petite" 2011, Ken Forrester
           
Western Cape, South Africa
Rich, luscious flavors of  blackberry, mulberry and plum with notes of smoke, spice and earth. Soft finish.  Great match for pizza, steaks, burgers, barbeque.
"Ideal for a 'braai' (South African barbeque or
imagegrilling session).  Stuffed Mushrooms.
Pinotage is a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault
(often called Hermitage in South Africa) created  in the 1920's  in South Africa   Pinotage is known as South Africa's signature red grape variety.


  Get in the Halloween spirit  with one of our favorites!
              Ravenswood 'Besieged' 2012
                      Sonoma, California

   A “limited”seasonal release red blend from Joel Peterson, founder of Ravenswood (1976) and iconic winemaker. It is his personal blend of several California “Heritage” varietals from a number of Old Vine vineyards: 35% Carignane, 20% Petite Sirah, 18% Zinfandel, 13% Mourvedre, 9% Alicante Bouschet, and 5%image Barbera.  Dark, rich, full aromass & flavors excite the senses with impressions of ripe blackberry, black cherry, plum, cardamon, flowing into a delicious, smooth, pleasing finish.   We think this is a very impressive wine and a terrific good value. There’s a limited amount available. Fun for Halloween. And if you want some for the holidays, don’t wait---it may be gone by then.

    The winery’s description on the back label refers to Joel’s story about his first vintage and his choice of name for his winery. "Under a threatening sky, BESIEGED by rain clouds, lightning glinting in the hills, winemaker Joel Peterson worked alone to collect grapes destined for one of his debut wines. As he worked, ravens laughed from above, but instead of being harbingers of doom, they brought him good fortune, becoming the totem for his winery — Ravenswood."
