"Free to Be You and Me" Complimentary Wine Tasting
Friday, June 11th

The Prisoner Wine Company acquires grapes from more than 100 vineyards throughout California’s premier grape-growing regions. It is recognized as one of the most innovative Napa Valley wineries, leading the resurgence of California red blends and earning “cult wine” status. The Unshackled wines were made for those looking to break free from convention, stereotypes, and perception. We will taste:
Rose 2019 — A blend of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre, this wine is bright and crisp, featuring citrusy aromas with hints of strawberry and melon. The flavors of grapefruit, tangerine and lemon offer lively acidity and result in a refreshing rosé with a crisp finish.
Central Coast: Monterey, Santa Barbara; North Coast: Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley
Rating: 91, Wine Enthusiast. $22.99/$9
Red Blend 2019 — Aromas of raspberry, blueberry, and crushed violets. Flavors of spiced dried cherries, florals and a hint of white pepper translate to a balanced red blend wine supported with a generous mouthfeel. A blend of Zinfandel, Malbec, Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Grenache is barrel-aged in French and American oak casks for 11 months before bottling.
Central Coast: Monterey, San Benito, Paso Robles AVAs; North Coast: Lodi, Sonoma – Dry Creek, Mendocino – Redwood Valley, Lake County
Rating: 91 (2018), Wine Enthusiast. $29.99/$10
Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 — Aromas of plum and blackberry with a hint of olive. Vibrant flavors of black stone fruit and dried herbs with solid tannin structure result in a flavor-forward Cab with balanced acidity. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Merlot, aged 10 months in barrel, 30% New French and American oak.
Central Coast: Monterey, San Benito, Paso Robles AVAs; North Coast: Lodi, Sonoma – Dry Creek, Mendocino – Redwood Valley, Lake County
Rating: 91 (2018), Wine Enthusiast. $29.99/$10
We are continuing with a combination of tableside and barside, depending on your party size! C’mon in when you’re ready. Please continue to select and sit at a table that matches your party size so that we can accommodate everyone. As always, feel free to bring snacks/dinner with you, but please dispose of your own trash (there is a garbage can at the back entrance of the store). AND, don’t forget the cheese shop, St. Lucio’s Gourmet and Cheese. They are introducing new cheeses regularly. Thanks y’all, see you Friday!!
