Wines by the Glass
* These handpicked selections on our list are inspired by the O’Heas' love of travel, food & wine. All of these wines have either been featured in a wine dinner or a visit to the winery by the O’Heas.
As the seasons change each year, we work with our wine merchants to bring you interesting wines that complement the fresh flavors available that time of year. We select these wines to provide our guests with both great value and to introduce them to some interesting new wines they may not have had an opportunity to try before.
Tenuta Luisa Friulano$11.00 glass$47.00 bottle
Definitely a most representative white wine of the enolgy and the viticulture f Friuli. An intensive straw-yellow color, flowery, with a fruity flavor eminiscent of bitter almonds. On the palate, resolutely dry, but thanks to the light acidity, which distinguishes the wine, it always appears round, full-bodied and velvety.
Prosecco, Carpene Malvolti, Italy (N/V)$11.00
This dry, delicate Italian sparkling wine offers elegant notes of ripe pear, crisp apple, and fresh bread on both the nose and palate. Light and refreshing, this wine is excellent as an aperitif or paired with light seafood dishes.
Chardonnay, Bulletine, Southeastern Australia$9.50
Light straw in colour, this fruit driven Chardonnay displays ripe peach and toasty oak aromas. A fresh palate of buttery ferment characters, creamy yeast and vanillan oak, finishing long, soft and well rounded.
Chardonnay, Bread & Butter, Napa$11.00
Bright and clean in the glass with a beautiful golden yellow tone. Aromas of fresh butter, vanilla oak, and citrus fruit combine in a way that reminds one of an Orange Creamsicle, with a floral, jasmine hint.
Sauvignon Blanc, Lobster Reef, Marlborough$9.50
An aromatic Sauvignon Blanc, with cut grass, apple blossom and lime zest notes on a light frame. Features vibrant acidity and plenty of citrus, apple and peach flavors.
Pinot Grigio, Satori Friuli, Italy$9.00
A wine that is aromatic and soft, showing apple and peach character. A clean and correct Pinot Grigio, with a lighter body
Riesling, Chateau Ste. Michelle, Washington State *$9.00
This Riesling is soft and open-textured, with pear and sweet citrus flavors. A delicate wine with a hint of fresh acidity to add a bit of crispness.
White Bordeaux, Chateau Fage, France$8.50
A unique and crisp white wine
Dry Rosé, 14-18h, Gaia, Greece *$9.00
This Agiorgitiko Péloponnèse wine is a solid rosé, with a pretty salmon hue and dried cherry and berry flavors and a clean finish. A great rosé for any season.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Plungerhead, California$11.00
This inky black Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon begins with aromas of blackberry compote, dried Bing cherry, pomegranate, and hints of earthy terroir, all framed with notes of vanilla and lightly-roasted dill from aging in American oak barrels. Flavors of black raspberry and boysenberry, dark chocolate-covered cherries, dried tarragon and toasted coconut are then complemented by a fresh blackberry and toasted brioche finish.
Tuscan Red Grape Blend, Centine, Tuscany *$10.00
A medium-bodied, fruity red, boasting cherry and berry flavors presented on a moderately firm frame, with a touch of earth on the finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Cantina Zaccagnin$9.50
A dry red wine with fragrances of red berries, spice, leather and a hint of pepper. Low in acidity, this Italian red pairs well with food or simply drinks well by the glass.
Merlot, The Velvet Devil, Washington State *$9.50
This red wine from winemaker Charles Smith is light and easygoing, with pretty red berry and chamomile flavors, lingering on the finish.
Pinot Noir, Fog Head, Monterey$11.00
A delicious, medium-bodied wine, showing red cherry and fresh strawberry fruit as well as delicate hints of clove and sage. This refreshing red wine delivers complex flavors of berry jam, licorice and slight hints of rhubarb and vanilla on the palate. Crisp acidity, soft tannins and juicy fruit lead to a clean, balanced finish.
Malbec Reserve, Graffigna, Argentina$9.50
The Argentinian red wine offers a mix of dark plum and cassis notes, as undertones of mesquite and espresso emerge in the finish.
Red Blend, Troublemaker, Paso Robles, CA$10.00
