Periodically, our main wine guy, Alfonse will post his feature selections in the store (though he seems afraid of anything other than a pen). After much plying, I managed to convince him to type up his latest ALIEN pics (if anyone remembers the acid-trip TV show ALF, then you get his alien connection):

1) Rive Prosecco, Italy $12.98, special. Perfect sparkler to start a holiday evening.... or any evening for that matter. Try with antipasta or prosciutto with melon. 2) Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc/Viognier, USA $11.98 special. Soft and approachable white blend. Dry with apple and orange rind notes. Tropical with lemon zest and clean acidity. Yummy. Perfect for chilean sea bass. 3) La Crema Pinot Noir, USA $20.99 special. The Perfect complement to holiday fare! From turkey to all you can eat fried chicken. Lush with raspberry and strawberry notes. Perfect acidity and cinnamon spice on the long expressive finish. 4) Hope Shiraz, Australia $10.99 special. Explodes with black and red berries. Pepper and spice box in the mid body pervades. Finishes with dusty tannins and light vanilla notes. A ribeye steak would pair nicely with Hope.
