Ommegang – Game of Thrones “Valor Dohaeris” (NY)

Aromas of sweet grain and honey are prevalent once poured. The flavor opens with a note of sweetness due to use of Belgian candi sugar used in the brewing process. The finish is dry and effervescent with a note of Belgian yeast.

 

 

Anna Codorniu Blanc de Blancs Cava

A blend of Chardonnay, Parellada, and Xarel-lo, Macabeu. Made in the traditional method and bursting with crisp, fruity flavors that are further enhanced by a minimum of 15 months of oak aging. The mouthfeel is creamy and bold with persistent carbonation.

Pomar Junction Brooster “Fighting Red” 2013 (CA)

A Zinfandel blend with a medium body and spicy accents. Notes of plum and berry are supported by a hint of oak aging, leading to notes of caramel, black pepper, and just a touch of minerality. A perfect red wine for lighter dishes that may be overwhelmed by other Zinfandel based red blends.

 

Roots Run Deep Educated Guess Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (CA)

A rich and ripe Napa Valley Cabernet, with notes of blackberries and cherries accompanied by cocoa and a hint of mint. The oak aging brings notes of creamy vanilla. A lush body with a lingering finish. Perfect for heavier meals.

 

Lolea No. 1 Sparkling Red Sangria

A traditional Spanish sangria: cherry red in color with fine carbonation bubbles. Notes of cherry, orange peel, lemon drop, cinnamon, and sour strawberry are abundant once poured. The palate is full with notes of ripe red berries and blue flowers. A young, sweet wine with a slightly bitter finish to leave you wanting more. Also available in 8 oz. bottles for $5.00 each.
