Through these crazy times, one fact has remained, we have not stopped tasting new items. Even through all of this, we have brought in several new items to the store. I want to highlight several new items and also several monthly specials for May. Whatever it is you’re looking for, we’ve either got or can get it for you.
As the weather warms up this month, Kono Sauvignon Blanc out of New Zealand will be on sale. Kono is a refreshing wine full of citrus and gooseberry notes. These fruits lead the way into a clean acidic finish that’s I really enjoy on these warm Spring Days.
Another lineup that’s enjoyable all year round is the Decoy. Whether you’re looking for a full or light-bodied red or a refreshing rose, they’ve got you covered. I find the Decoy Rose to embody many typical French Provence Style Roses. With many fruit-forward flavors, it finishes dry and crisp. On the other hand, Decoy’s Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied red. The lush fruits are followed by deep tannins with oak and spice.
Building up from the Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon, a new we just brought in is the Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon. This Cab is top shelf, and the price point and taste reflect it. Coming from Paso Robles, this Cab expresses aromas of black currant and cherries with a hint of smoky spices. This complex wine is full-bodied perfectly balanced between rich tannins and bright acidity. I think everyone deserves to treat themselves after going through everything recently. So if you’re thinking about treating yourself, this is the wine for you!
Moving away from wines, I find spiked seltzers extremely enjoyable in this weather. I recently tried the Vizzy seltzers, and unlike a lot of the other ones, these are packed full of Antioxidant Vitamin C and have only 100 calories. Vizzy’s flavor comes from real cane sugar and is certified gluten-free. Their 12 pack variety pack comes with a unique line up of Pineapple Mango, Blueberry Pomegranate, Strawberry Kiwi, and Black Cherry Lime. Whether you’re staying home and enjoying on the porch, enjoying one after a beautiful hike, or need a refreshing drink to go with dinner, these are great for just about every occasion.
