Wine Options:


2019 Raeburn Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley (California): This bright crimson Pinot Noir leads with pleasing aromas of baking spice and vanilla followed by stunning flavors of wild berries and roasted hazelnuts.

2016 Marietta Cellars Christo Estate Red Rhone Blend (California): Black cherry, chocolate, leather, licorice, and spice give this wine its dark, brooding feel.  Powerful intense but nonetheless fresh, this Rhone blend is wonderfully complete and absolutely delicious.

2018 Stephen Vincent Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley (California): A classic Cab with aromas of blackberry liqueur and anise with hints of pipe tobacco and exotic spices followed by flavors of ripe berries, dried cherries, toasted coconut, and caramel.  This wine has a tannic texture but maintains delicate acidity into the finish.


2019 Hill Family Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley (California): Bright, fresh notes of citrus and stone fruit including peach, lemon curd, and white grapefruit.  The mid-palate is rich, but the finish remains light and crisp!

2018 Raeburn Chardonnay, Russian River Valley (California): This balanced Chardonnay shows pretty fruit character of pears, apples, and nectarines.  The fruit is complimented by toasted oak, vanilla, and hints of creme brulee on its elegant finish.
