Weekend Pairing

Whether you call it Mouvedre or Monastrell, if you love big fruity, jammy, leathery, spicy red wine You'll adore what we're pouring this weekend. One of the new additions to our shelves is the 2006 Salina "Mo" Monastrell from Spain. This dry wine certainly does pack a wallop!

We are pairing the wine with Beecher's Flagship Cheddar from Seattle. Clothbound Cheddars are a favorite among all of us here, and when it gets a butter rub during it's 12 months of aging like the Beecher's does, it takes on a decadent quality.

Paired with the blueberry and thyme compote this pairing is bursting with savory and sweet notes. Guaranteed to help warm you up this weekend. Come in and see what we mean!
