This summer we’ve really turned up the heat on the drinks we’re serving. As you saw in our What’s new at Blue Angel for Summer… Brews Part 1 we have a HUGE new selection of suds. But, “What about our wines?”, you ask. Well, we thought for the 4th of July weekend we’d spice it up by introducing them!

Newest Wines at Blue Angel Café

Boeger Pinot Gris

– Winemaker’s Tribute!

Blue Angel Cafe New Wines Boeger Pinot Gris Wine El Dorado CountyWe had a formal introduction of this vino as part of our Winemaker’s Dinner. It’s a delightful white wine with aromas of honeysuckle, pear and banana cream pie. With your first sip, you’ll notice the palate is soft and round with a clean finish. It’s a perfect accompaniment with our Fish ‘n Chips dish.

Black’s Station Malbec

– A Californian wine made with a frontier soul

Blue Angel Cafe New Wines Black's Station Malbec 2015 Wine Best WineHighlighted in our article Drop Everything and Go Skiing, the Malbec grape was saved due to Argentina. We’ve definitely fallen in love with the Argentinian Malbecs, BUT our newest Malbec comes from a little town named Zamora. Located in northern California’s rolling Dunnigan Hills, back in the late 1800’s folks used to call this town Black’s Station. So, they like to think that the wines coming out of Zamora carry with them the character and frontier-style of the old town. We agree! It has flavors of cherry, mocha and a touch of vanilla oak giving way to a dusty, cocoa finish. The broad, smooth flavors make this a versatile wine that pairs well with our barnyard burger and quinoa beet salad.

Prosecco Zonin

– An Italian Sparkling Wine to toast the 4th

Prosecco (a type of Italian spumante or “sparkling” wine) is made from a grape of the same name. An enjoyable bubbly with good creamy froth, white peach, mineral and hard candy tones nicely balanced and spread throughout. It has a thick consistency and a snappy, crisp close. Served chilled, it’s perfect for sipping on a hot day.

We’re excited about our new menu entrants so be sure to try them out and let us know what you think. We toast to you for a happy and safe 4th of July! And don’t forget about our Wine Therapy Thursdays Happy Hour! From 3-6 pm, you’ll receive 50% off of our house wine!
