“Tamales, tacos, and burritos all depend on corn meal for their wrapping, but the insides of each are what drives the dish. Consider the range of meat-chicken pork, beef, and fish-and onions and cooked vegetables; but it all comes back to the chiles that set the flavor stage.
And what about simple salsa, featuring tomato, garlic, and jalapeños that can set fire to any palate. The complex flavors and vibrant spice of these dishes push the wine selection toward Pinot Noir for red wine devotees and toward Viognier for those who need a drink and something cold to put out the fire.”
Bonny Doon Rosé- Reg. $18.99 SALE $13.99
First up for the evening we have the Bonny Doon Rosé, or as it’s better known around South Boulder: the “Alien Rosé.” Nothing screams warm weather as much as this beautiful wine. Grenache and Mourvèdre dominate the blend at 62% and 17% respectively, with 9 percent Roussanne and 6 percent each of Grenache Blanc and Cinsault. Its aromas and flavors suggest berries, melon, and blossom. The wine is dry and fairly full-bodied, with rich, oily-like texture that contrasts with a backbone of crisp acidity. The clean, long finish adds mineral notes to the flavor mix. A true store favorite, if you haven’t tried it, now is the time!
Basa Rueda White Wine- Reg. $12.49 SALE $10.49
Up next we have the Basa White, which is a blend of Verdejo and Virua, from Rueda, Spain. This beautiful wine opens with intense floral aromatics and light fruit notes. Freshness and wonderful texture permeate the palate and are the result of the high elevation plantings in lime and gravel soils, with good drainage, that give rise to some of the best quality white wine grapes in Spain.  Another perfect wine for the warmer weather, the finish has a clean acidity that helps it pair well with food but isn’t so aggressive that it can’t be enjoyed all on its own. Come check out this great wine while we have it open!
Decero Malbec- Reg. $18.99 SALE $13.99 

Third up for the night we have the Decero Malbec. Another store favorite for some time, this wine is truly wonderful. Full red-ruby on the pour, it leads into pure aromas of blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and violet. On the palate it is juicy, concentrated and refined, showing a restrained sweetness and good medicinal reserve to the flavors of dark berries, mocha and more chocolate. It finishes smooth and persistent, with a serious dusting of fine-grained tannins and lingering dark berry and licorice notes. This is another wine you wont want to miss trying!
Resolute Cabernet Sauvignon- Reg. $22.99 SALE $18.99
Last up for the night we have the Resolute Cabernet Sauvignon, our latest and greatest addition to our Cab shelf! This awesome wine opens with aromas of blackberry, plum, and cola before giving way to softer tones of vanilla, cherry and light leaf-tobacco notes. Smooth upon entry, this medium bodied wine leads to a balanced mid palate with pleasant acidity. Flavors mirroring the nose are layered with additional flavors of toasted brioche, toffee and cloves that come together to form a long and lingering finish. One of Charlie’s new favorites, come check it out while we have it open!
