Carneros Highway 12 Pinot Noir
A fruity red wine, it has a balanced acidity that highlights its lively mouthfeel from start to finish. Notes of strawberry and rose hit at the front of the palate and transition to a fruity finish, making it a perfect complement to the American Quartet.
Ca’ Momi Sauvignon Blanc
With aromas of sweet pepper, passion fruit and grapefruit, this delicious wine has a dry and fruity medium body. It finishes nicely with hints of grass, lemon and cream.
Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet
An inviting cab, this rich wine has plenty of complexity and is structured with silky tannins. The bold flavors of this cabernet will cut through the sharpness of the cheeses and leave you wanting more.
