State & Allen Lounge Wine List
—————————-
THE REDS:

First Drop ‘The Red One’
(Barossa Valley, Australia)
Cabernet Sauvignon Blend
A nice blend of Cabernet, Merlot and a hint of Shiraz – solid wine for the price and scores well with Robert Parker.

Vinos Sin-Ley ‘Gordo’
(Yecla, Spain)
Mataro – Rose
This is not your Grandma’s White Zin – a wonderful floral nose but drinks dry. A great patio wine & Bradley’s favorite!!!

X Winery ‘Syrahtica’
(Lake County, California)
Syrah
Aroma of blackberry and blueberry with a hint of pepper and well rounded tannins – another high scoring wine from Parker.

Menguante
(Carenina, Spain)
Tempranillo
Classical old world style tempranillo with earthy overtones and solid structure & finish – one of the chef’s favorites!!!

Victory Vnyds ‘Parcel 31’
(Multiple Appelations, California)
Zinfandel
A truly well balanced Zinfandel for a change; all the grapes are sourced from old vines & bring a distinct bouquet and extended finish.

Smith & Hook
(Santa Lucia, California)
Cabernet Sauvignon
Big, solid California Cab that is sure to please; nice fruit forward and strong finish.

Tabanera
(Mendoza, Argentina)
Pinot Noir
Incredible first release Pinot showing ripe red fruit, hints of chocolate and a smokey aroma – rarely can you get this much for so little.

THE WHITES:

Silver Peak
(Napa Cnty, California)
Chardonnay
Fragrant apple blossom & lemon zest w/a hint of butter – wine has undercurrents of nutty oak and lingering nectarine.

Las Perdices
(Mendoza, Argentina)
Pinot Grigio
A soft, green-yellow color shows a subtle nose of citrus and floral aromas. This is a wonderfully crisp wine that can stand up to any Italian Pinot.

Errazuriz Estate
(Valle del Aconcagua, Chile)
Sauvignon Blanc
Fresh, clean aromas combined w/grassy herbaceousness; a touch of tropical fruit and hints of citrus.

Columbia Winery
(Columbia Valley, WA)
Riesling
A nice rendition of Rieslings – a slight hint of sweetness.  Peach and apricot flavors w/wonderful crispness.

Robert Oatley
(Western Australia)
Sauvignon Blanc
Crisp, zesty, refreshing tropical fruit from three regions in Australia; from an original winemaker at Rosemont the pioneer of Aussie winemaking.

Lange
(Willamette Valley, OR)
Pinot Gris (Pinot Grigio)
An elegant wine from the NW; an American version of pinot grigio – a lush full bodied wine with nice clean finish.

LIOCO
(Sonoma, California)
Chardonnay
A great, relatively new wine house capturing the essence of Napa fruit – big bold classic Napa Chardonnay.
