Red Wines

Warre’s Warrior, Porto Finest Reserve 24

Deep red color, with intensely rich aromas of ripe red fruits and spices. On the palate well balanced and full-bodied, with a long and complex finish.

Catena Reserve Malbec, Argentina 24

The Catena Malbec shows a deep violet color with purple tones. The nose offers concentrated aromas of ripe red and dark fruits with delicate floral notes like violets and lavender, and traces of vanilla and mocha. The mouthfeel is rich and concentrated, with blueberry and blackberry notes and a touch of leather and cinnamon. The finish presents well-integrated tannins with bright acidity and a flinty minerality that gives the wine exceptional length.

Campos de Viento Tempranillo, Spain 12

The nose is typical of varietal Tempranillo, with a nose of fresh red fruits, like strawberries and subtle hints of fresh herbs. The palate is well-structured with soft tannins and of medium length.

“Les Safres” Luberon Red, France 15

Large aromatic expression with spicy and fuity aromas. Good balance and good persistancy with a supple tannic structure.

Route 1 Carmenere, Chile 15

After years of being thought extinct, Carmenere was rediscovered in Chile in 1994.  Carmenere is a deep red color with gentle tannins and rich flavors of plum, blackberry and spice.

Italo Pietrantonj Montepulciano D’Abruzzo, Italy 17

This is great, rustic, and gulp-able Montepulciano from the oldest winery in Abruzzi. Lovely floral fruit on the nose mingles with the characteristic pencil and earth notes of the grape. The wine is unfined, unfiltered, and fermented in cement tanks. A fantastic wine and an excellent value.

Snap Dragon Cabernet, California 15 Bottle By the glass 7

A very nice Cabernet that shows real polish and finesse, and look at that price. Shows ripe, rich blackberry, black currant, blueberry, cocoa and cedar flavors, wrapped into finely ground, sweet tannins.

Route Stock Cabernet, California 21

RouteStock 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon has complex aromas of black plum, blackberry and roasted coffee, entwined with delicately roasted spices. The palate is rich and layered with ripe black fruit flavors and seamlessly integrated toasted-oak notes

Sebastiani Pinot Noir Sonoma California 21

Layered with notes of cherries, sandalwood, spice, “forest floor” and lingering flavors of roasted coffee and caramel.21

Londer Pinot Noir, “Parabol”, Anderson Valley, California 38

This beautiful coastal pinot has a provocative balance of richness and delicacy, a blend of grapes from Ferrington vineyard in the southwestern end of Anderson Valley and Valley Foothills in the cooler northwestern reaches. The red fruit is crisp, with an acidity as brisk as biting into a red apple. Itandrsquo;s also full and potent, with the scent of an apple orchard in the fall.

White Wine

Hoque Riesling 12

This fragrant wine offers up inviting aromas of citrus, stone and exotic tropical fruits. Flavors of ripe peaches, brightened with vivid acidity, keep it in perfect balance. The 1.4% resudual sugar is barely noticeable; the finish lingers gracefully and refreshes the palate, inviting the next sip.

Beringer White Zinfandel, California 12

Bridlewood Viognier, California 24

In the glass, Bridlewood Viognier has a pale, straw-like color. It has a seductive, exceptionally fragrant nose with a sweetness to it that comes from the flowery aromas and the tropical fruits. It is heavily redolent of honeysuckle, jasmine, and other pungent flowers. In addition, it has peach blossom and orange blossom scents. These come together to produce a honey-like sweet aftertaste, even though the wine is slightly tart and dry.

Kris Pinot Grigio, Italy Bottle 15, By the glass 7

15 Bottle

By the glass  7

Brilliant lemon-green in color, Kris Pinot Grigio offers enticing aromas of acacia flowers, citrus, tangerine, and hints of almonds. A best-selling wine and a great value!

Conundrum White Blend, California 28

Ah, the sweet dance of Conundrum. A success story that should be studied in MBA programs, this wine is almost a category unto itself. The proportion always changes, and they’re always a little coy about the grapes themselves, but it’s something like Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Muscat Canelli, Viognier and Semillon in a dangerously decadent blend with plenty of flesh and a little sugar.

Frei Brothers Chardonnay, Russian River California 20

The grapes for this Chardonnay are whole-cluster pressed to bring out a fresh fruit characteristic. Secondary malolactic fermentation imparted a plush texture and deep, layered flavors.

Skylark Alondra Chardonnay, California 18

Classic Middleridge Ranch aromatics of  green apple and pear blossom, while subtle tropical fruits of banana chip and mango add complexity. The palate showcases a balanced interplay of citrus and green apple folding into roasted lemon and tropical fruit. With the absence of toasted oak, the finish is long and clean with the fleshy fruit lifted by natural acidity.

Sparkling Wine

Sofia Blanc de Blanc (by the glass) 7

Fruity and refreshing, Sofia Blanc de Blancs is a rare blend of Pinot Blanc, Muscat, and Riesling. Mellow flavors of apples and pears are topped by a hint of citrus and honeysuckle. Elegant in character, this wine is lightly textured and vibrant through the finish.

Mionetto ½ bottle Prosecco 11

Has an intense fruity bouquet with a hint of golden apples. It is very dry, fresh, light in body and well-balanced.

Il Colle Prosecco, Italy 19

This excellent Prosecco has a brilliant and crystalline color boasting a perlage of great finesse and persistence. It opens on the nose to fresh and young notes of exotic fruits and delicate tones of cedar bark and lime. The palate offers crisp, fresh fruit, good balance & flavor & caressing hints of kiwi & white melon.

Heidsieck Monopole Champagne 42

“A rich, smoky base of roasted walnut and toasted coconut underscores this subtle version. Lightly creamy in texture and well-balanced, with juicy acidity backing hints of glazed apricot, crème de cassis and grated ginger. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.”

 

Pol Roger Champagne, France 65

“An appealing mushroom aroma is the opening note for this smooth, harmonious wine that has enough personality to be a vintage Champagne. It has plenty of body, a flavor dominated by walnuts, a creamy texture and a smooth, buttery finish.”

Maine Mead

About Maine Meads

The oldest of all fermented beverages. Although mead is commonly associated with medieval culture, its origins can be traced to parts of Africa and Asia where it was used for medicinal and ceremonial purposes.

Ironically, it was actually during medieval times that honey became more expensive and people turned to other beverages. While mead remained the drink of kings, it slipped largely into obscurity among the common people.

Honeymaker Blueberry Mead 18

Rose-hued, this mead balances the delicate elements of honey with the tart notes of wild coastal blueberries. Medium-bodied, crisp and refreshing, it’s a local, artisanal rosé alternative — ideal for summer evenings or a taste of the harvest during the long winter months.

Honeymaker Dry White Mead 14

The ultimate modern mead boasts remarkable clarity, balanced acidity and a crisp, dry finish. Wildflower honey infuses delicate citrus and floral notes, tempered with a slight earthiness. Alive with the essence of late summer in the wildest reaches of Maine — pure, golden, delicious. Recommended for fans of crisp, refreshing white wines.
