RUFFINO Prosecco DOC Italy
Prosecco is a sparkling white Wine made only in specific provinces of northeastern Italy. All Prosecco wines are made primarily from the Glera grape, a na=ve variety with origins in the lovely village of Prosecco, near Trieste. Ruffino Prosecco is fruity and fragrant with clean notes of citrus, pears and apples along with slight hints of hawthorn, wisteria and elder. Fine bubbles caress the palate, while intense flavors of apples and peaches give the wine a pleasing finish.

CAYMUS CONUNDRUM Red CA 2013
A rich, dark red, it offers aromas of ripe berries and plums, warmed by a hint of cocoa. Dried fruit and the taste of chocolate-covered cherries come through on the palate, while a wisp of smokiness makes this wine – created from dark red varietals including Zinfandel and Pe=te Sirah – the perfect complement to grilled meats and full-flavored dishes. Tannins are rounded out by the ripeness of the berries for a texturous but smooth mouth feel. The finish makes us think of lingering at the end of a long evening and s=ll not wan=ng to go home, with layers of rich flavor that teasingly trail off.
