It’s a great pleasure to be able to share the elegant wines of Roger Nicolas which we recently hand carried from his tiny estate north of Paso Robles.  These wines are not available anywhere and we recommend you taste / buy them while one case of each last. In addition, a trio of delicious white Rhone varietals and three cult bottlings of Syrah round out the flights.

Join us Wednesday, Sept. 21 for a special tasting of six wines from one of our favorite importers: Rosenthal! Local Italian Wine Geek Joanie Karapetian will be in the Lab providing insight into these exceptional wines from France and Italy. 6 – 9 PM with 10% off bottles to go that night only.
