It was a welcoming site seeing people gathered for FIBArk 2021. I would like to say thank you to the FIBArk BOD and planning staff for pulling off this event in the face of so much adversity. Volunteering for the FIBArk BOD in good circumstances is a commendable activity – stepping up now was above and beyond. Thank You FIBArk BOD!
Well it’s officially summertime in Salida! And it felt like it in June with a number of days in the mid 90’s! I hope you all found a way to stay cool in June and can continue to do so over course of July and August. What better way to beat the heat than to stop in Salida’s oldest liquor store and pick up some nice chilled libations or ingredients for a refreshing cocktail? We have gathered a number of items for this month’s specials that will be sure to accommodate any summertime activity. Stop in and see for yourselves, as always we will be glad to see and help you find the perfect beverage to help you stay cool Salida – see you soon!

Prime Cuts Red 2018
Was $11.99 - Now $8.99
A blend of classic South African grape varieties - the notion of 'dro rooi' (dry red) in SA is traditional, well known and long established. In other markets, non-varietal red blends often meet with resistance but this is to miss out on some AMAZINGLY great value wines. Therefore, Prime Cuts Red captures with thoroughly appealing packaging, an absolute Cape classic. Really juicy, accessible, soft, bright red. LEKKER!! A nose of pure crushed fresh raspberries with that Swartland sandy element complete with a palate of summer berries, cream and dark spice in the finish.
Alverdi Barbera 2020
Was $11.99 - Now $9.99
Barbera grapes are known for their deep, dark red color which is visible in a glass of our Alverdi Barbera DOC. This wine boasts notes of cherry and blackberry, with a long, pronounced finish. Fruit-forward in style, however there are rustic characteristics that make this wine unmistakably Italian.

90 points and 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendoza, Argentina. Brothers Pato and Cristian Reich are second generation viticulturalists in Mendoza.

The Cloud Factory Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Was $13.99 - Now $10.99
Perfumed with nettle ripe tropical fruits which are also evident on the palate along with limey flavours and a rich minerality - classic Marlborough Sauvignon. The wine is sappy fresh, clean and delicious. Try with white fish, seafood, grilled asparagus, avocado with prawns.
Meu Treixadura 2019
Was $16.99 - Now $14.99
Treixadura is a Portuguese white grape, grown in the Vinho Verde region of north-east Portugal and here, in Galicia in north-west Spain.
This is just gorgeous. Fresh and fruity with a beautifully weighted palate, displaying hints of stone fruit, melon, pink grapefruit and intriguing herbal characters, soft and fleshy on the finish with moderate acidity, some minerality and good length.
Golden Chardonnay 2019
Was $14.99 - Now $12.99
Caramelized Bosc Pear and Gala Apples with sprinkles of cinnamon and crushed, toasted hazelnut. Innuendos of banana pudding with vanilla cream, with lively hibiscus and citrus blossom essence. Wonderful balance and structure throughout. Tropical notes of passion fruit, combined with preserved Meyer lemon gives the mid-palate a bright, yet ample weight and character. An abundance of minerality in the form of stone fruits compliment the subtle vanilla oak and creaminess. The finish is enduring and thoughtful. Will pair with a variety of dishes, from a panseared. Tilefish to a Jerk-style pork tenderloin. Or, as should always be the case, perfectly enjoyable on its own...stay Golden.
Lubanzi Chenin Blanc 2020
Was $18.99 - Now $15.99
A bright wine, brimming with acidity and fluorescence. A lively pale yellow-green colour in the glass followed by a wonderfully aromatic nose with hints of green melon, passionfruit, lemon zest and green apple.

Hoya de Cadena Cava NV
Was $14.99 - Now $11.99
Straw yellow colour with elegants and persistent bubbles. Clean an fruity aroma with citrus character and an undertone of floral notes.

Kings Ridge Pinot Noir 2019
Was $19.99 - Now $16.99
After a string of vintages with above average temperatures, 2019 was a return to a cooler and wetter year. Although the growing season started off on the warm side, we experienced a mild and wetter than average summer. The mild temps allowed for long hang time and lower sugar accumulation. We had a compressed harvest with a number of rain showers that had us picking as much as we could during the dry windows between storms. The wines are looking good with low alcohols, vibrant acidity, beautiful aromatics and great transparency.
TASTING NOTES: COCOA, BOYSENBERRY, AND ORANGE PEEL
Kings Ridge Pinot Gris 2019
Was $16.99 - Now $14.99
The Kings Ridge Pinot Gris comes from grapes hand harvested off of two of our favorite sites in the Willamette Valley, Bielenberg Vineyard and Goschie Vineyard. We harvested Goschie on October 5th and Bielenberg on October 8th under blue skies. The grapes were whole bunch pressed, settled overnight then racked and fermented cold to retain delicate aromatics. This wine is punctuated by notes of crisp lime, white peach and wet stone. It’s focused and vibrant on the palate with a rich mid palate from sur lee aging.

Raja Cuvee Jigar
Was $24.99 - Now $19.99
This is an attractive hearty dry wine with tasty blackberry and black-cherry flavors, and a firm layer of tannins to give it grip. Based on 53% Syrah, it should be good to pair with bold meat or pasta dishes.
