Benziger Sauvignon Blanc

Beautiful citrus and apple flavors introduce our Sauvignon Blanc, followed closely 
by its delicious minerality. The wine’s acid is both balanced and integrated, 
giving it a textured mid-palate and an elegant softness.

Paired With: Fried Housemade Gnocchi with Parmesan Garlic Aioli
Additional Tasting Price: Glass $8/Bottle $24

Benziger Chardonnay

Bursts with mouth-watering fruit and lively acid. Flavors of apple, pear, citrus and ripe
apricot engage the palate, while subtle, creamy hints of butter and meringue unfold. The
final presentation is a luscious finish, leaving the palate refreshed and wanting more
.

Paired With: Crab Ball, Crostini and Dijon Aioli
Additional Tasting Price: Glass $7/Bottle $21

Benziger Merlot

Full-bodied wine that is brilliantly balanced. Dark cherry, dried blueberry and a dusting of dark
chocolate carry through the palate. This wine has loads of dark fruit flavors that are in balance
with notes of pepper, black tea and clove. Very well structured, expect a velvety finish
.

Paired With: Smoked Beef Brisket with Blackberry BBQ
Additional Tasting Price: Glass $9/Bottle $27

Benziger Cabernet Sauvignon

Rich flavors of blackberry, plum and dark chocolate are layered throughout the palate.  
A juicy entry and berry cobbler, cinnamon and vanilla flavors. 
Mocha and wood spices form a rich, smooth finish with seamless tannins.

Paired With: Mushroom Gratin with Parmesan Regato
Additional Tasting Price: Glass $10/Bottle $30

Concannon Vineyard Petit Sirah

Intriguing floral aromas like rose petals and appetizing, fresh berry flavors are 
tempting in this medium-bodied and not-too-tannic wine.

Paired With: Mixed Berry Sorbet with Brown Butter Crumble
Additional Tasting Price: Glass $9/Bottle $27
