Notes From The Cellar
What we’re pouring right now -
Duemani Altrovino Cabernet Franc/Merlot 2008, from a well known practitioner of bio-dynamic farming and winemaking, this cuvee is delicious and affordable – and bio-dynamic! Medium bodied and elegantly structured, the smooth tannins make it very drinkable now. There are higher end (more expensive) cuvees to lay down and a lesser cuvee that was pretty good too. I really like the wines from Duemani, an excellent producer worth seeking out. Acid, Inc.
Domaine De La Solitude Cotes Du Rhone 2009, one of our favorite Chateauneuf Du Pape producers, this little village wine has a beautiful perfume of ripe fruit and earth, a medium weight and silky palate and a mouthful of juicy berries, bright acidity and soft tannins. We love this producer. Langdon-Shiverick
Ladera Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2007, what a crowd pleaser! Perfectly balanced and very approachable, a classic Napa Cab on the less extracted end of the spectrum that goes great with lots of our food. They have a couple of high end cuvees that were outstanding, but for the price this is very hard to beat. Winebow
