Small Business Saturday
Pettyjohn’s has grown a lot over 46 years in the Table Mesa Shopping Center, but we are still a mom and pop shop that needs your support to thrive. American Express introduced Small Business Saturday as a way of supporting unique, neighborhood businesses that need a little more marketing to keep up with the big-box chains. Please join us Saturday and continue to #ShopSmall.

OUR FRIDAY LINE-UP: 
Graham Beck Brut Rosé- Reg. $18.99 SALE $15.99 
The Graham Beck Brut Rosé is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Light pink in color with lots of bubbles, it’s a great looking wine. In the nose there are aromas of raspberries, cherries and minerality. The bubbles are smooth with soft red berry flavors and bright acids. It’s a great wine to have for the Holidays – pick up an extra bottle to go with the leftovers. This one will go great with salads, appetizers or dessert! 
Ruffino Lumina Pinot Grigio- Reg. $12.49 SALE $10.49 
A store favorite, the Ruffino Pinot Grigio is proof you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get good wine. It has a great nose full of fresh light fruit notes, a hint of sage and mint, and the typical minerality Pinot Grigio often exhibits.  Medium-bodied, it still maintains its lively nose while still having structure. Lemon peel on the palate gives into a lingering finish with a touch of minerality. We have this set up in our appetizer display but, in keeping with the theme of leftovers, it’s another great wine to pair with salads or light pastas. 
Vignamaggio Il Morino- Reg. $14.99 SALE $11.99 
We just got this wine in and it sure is great. A blend of 60% Sangiovese and 40% Merlot, it’s a medium- bodied wine with fresh tannins that are matched by good acidity and structure. The nose is fruity with hints of leather and spice. The palate is similar- red berries up front leading into a bit of spice before the lingering finish. This wine is sure to pair well with any leftovers from Thanksgiving in whatever way you want to serve them: soups, salads or sandwiches (or something I didn’t think of!). It also got 90 points from Wine Spectator, so don’t miss out on this one! 
Lan Crianza- Reg. $16.79 SALE $14.99
Last up we have the Lan Crianza. Brilliant cherry red, it’s a gorgeous wine with notes of fruit, pepper and oak in the nose. Good balance on the palate with present fruit up front leads into smooth tannins. It’s 100% Tempranillo and is a perfect example of a great Spanish wine. We’ve got this set up in our Wines great with Beef display but it’ll go great with just about anything. It’s been a staple of our Spanish section for awhile and tonight is a great night to revisit an old favorite.
