June Wine Club!
Mary Taylor, Filipe Ferreira Douro
This blend brings together the aromatic intensity of Touriga Nacional, sophisticated delicacy of Tinta Roriz (better known in Spain as Tempranillo), and the structure and elegance of Touriga Franca. Fresh red fruits on the nose persist through the palate, announcing a young, energetic wine with swirling, well-integrated tannins and a lovely, long finish.

Sourced from vineyards that surround the winery and fermented without oak to preserve the underlying expression of its classic terroir, this is Sauvignon Blanc as channeled through the unique prism of Bordeaux.

The Réserve de la Saurine Rouge of Laudun-Chusclan (Maison Sinnae) is a red wine (60% Grenache Noir, 40% Carignan) from the region of Gard in Vin de Pays. In the mouth this red wine is powerful, polished, and round with a nice balance between acidity and tannins. The wine has a beautiful ruby color with good intensity. The nose displays aromas of fresh red fruits.

Le Mistral Tier
Kumusha Wines, Flame Lily
A beautiful pour from renowned winemaker & wine expert Tinashe Nyamudoka, This wine is a South African blend of Roussanne, Chenin Blanc, Colombar & Semillon. Apple, white peach, lemon zest & winter melon flavors jump to the nose. Unabashed richness and sensuality in the fruit, balanced by a surprisingly taut and minerally acidity. A beautifully textured mouthfeel with flavors of the Zimbabwean fruit matunduru, also known as Loquat (similar to peach, apricot, plum).
Music Pairing - Tobe Nwigwe, I’m Dope
Kumusha Wines, Cab Sauv & Cinsault
Ripe cherries and plums flavors, with hints of pomegranate and strawberry. Juicy mouthfeel showing hints of the Zimbabwean fruit hute, also known as Waterberries (similar to Blackberries).

Carboniste Pinot Noir Rose Extra Brut
This wine is assembled from a range of cool-climate vineyards from the Santa Cruz Mountains and Marin County. A balanced and racy Pinot noir/Chardonnay blend that is flirty, flinty, and fun. This is a fun and fresh sparkling wine with aromas of wild strawberry and guava. Pop, make friends, and crush.
