Faust Cabernet 2017. The 2017 Faust Cabernet is a blend of their estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford and mountain sourcing in Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder, and Howell Mountain. Intense yet fresh with juicy blue and black notes. Notes of dark chocolate and dried herbs seduce the palate while silky tannins and lifting acidity lead to a layered and lingering finish. $41.99, Save $8.00

Postmark Cabernet 2018. On the palate, hints of violet, lavender and dark chocolate add to the delicious depth of this wine, with a pleasing touch of acidity bringing brightness and poise to a lush fruit-driven finish. $29.99

Jordan Cabernet 2015. Pure elegance in a glass. Aromas of black cherries, pomegranate, dried cranberries and a hint of graphite channel classic Bordeaux. Its lovely, silky texture coats the palate with layers of black cherries and a touch of cedar from French oak’s fine tannins. From beginning to end, the balance carries all the way through. Enjoy now after decanting for 60 minutes or cellar through 2029-2034. $54.99

Groth Cabernet 2015. The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is big and lush with huge gobs of fruit in the aroma and flavor. The texture of the wine is soft and supple, typical of Cabernet Sauvignons grown in our area of the Oakville AVA. The sweet vanilla character derived from 22 months in the barrels blends well with the black cherry and blackberry flavors and aromas of the wine. $59.99

Canard Cabernet 2015. From our dry farmed estate vines, this full bodied, deep garnet Cabernet Sauvignon is dense and rich with long soft tannins and a smooth integrated structure. $44.99, Save $5.00

Italian Wines

Tolaini Valdisanti 2015. Youthful, rich dark fruit, berry and cassis aromas meld with notable French oak spice. On the palate, Valdisanti is full-bodied with deep but reserved fruit flavors framed by rich oak. The excellent balance of fruit intensity with fine tannins indicates a cellar-worthy wine. $22.99, Save $2.00

Carpineto Montepulicano Reserva 2015. From vineyards planted to a minimum of 70% Sangiovese (Prugnolo Gentile) and a maximum of 30% of Canaiolo and other authorized grape varietals, this wine offers dry, harmonic, fruity and velvety flavor with an elegant texture and long finish. $29.99

Allegrini Amarone 2014. The result of the Allegrini family’s expertise, a true classic of the appellation, this red wine embraces tradition, territory and the know-how of country ways. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta are left to air dry at least until December and are checked daily to ensure perfectly healthy grapes. Lengthy refining and ageing finally yields a red wine that has become emblematic of Italian oenology, alongside Barolo and Brunello di Montalcino. It has imposing structure and depth, as much in its aromas of mature fruit and spices, as on the palate, where the alcohol is sustained by the right degree of acidity and refined tannins. $59.99

California Reds

Paul Hobbs Cabernet Franc 2015. Our inaugural release from this varietal wine brings to the
table a deep garnet and demonstrates a splendid aromatic typicity with intense blackberry, red currant and
dried sage. Full-bodied with layered flavors of tobacco leaf and graphite meet savory dark chocolate notes
wrapped in firm tannins. $42.99

Orin Swift “8 Years in the Desert” 2016. An opaque core with a red amethyst rim, the wine opens with ripe raspberry and blackberry, dark plum preserves and hints of black pepper and clove. An entry of heft, the palate is packed with blueberry and sweet black cherry along with touch of fresh herbs—thyme, savory and tarragon. Long on the finish, the ripe tannins, a dash of ash, and notes of black tea round out the wine. $39.99

Craft Beer, Idle Hands Giveaway

Farmhouse Pale Ale. Easy drinking farmhouse ale with an American twist. Notes of stone fruit, tropical fruit and bubblegum with a dry peppery finish.

Edgeworth Pilsner. Floral and citrus nose yields to a crisp, cracker-like malt character supporting flavors of lemon, citrus rind and fresh cut grass. The first beer inspired by and brewed for Malden.

Four Seam. Four Seam, our first year round IPA, conjures up thoughts of a tropical paradise with bursts of citrus, mango and guava that sit on top of a refrained malt backbone. Bitterness remains subdued to allow the true character of the hops to shine through while the cloudy appearance elevates the experience — a true New England IPA.
