Erbario Toscano’s Home Fragrances If you’ve been in the shop lately, you may have noticed the scent of black pepper. Sensual, mysterious and warm tones give an enjoyable sense of well-being, in reality the essence has energizing powers, toning and refreshing effects, along with stimulating and revitalizing properties – providing a vigorous pleasurable feeling. We think it is amazing – and that you will agree. Come in soon to smell, shop, and explore our offerings from this line.
Chandoka A mild, fruity cheddar cheese made from whole pasteurized cow and goat milk. The goat’s milk adds tangy, citric characteristics combined with upfront buttery, macadamia nut characteristics from the cow’s milk. Finishes lemony and grassy. $18.00/lb
Blue Maytag This classic American blue is hand made in small batches, using the milk from a prize-winning herd of Holstein cattle, and cave ripened to perfection for 6 months. With a crumbly texture, it reveals a very spicy flavor. $23.00/lb
Cabra with Wine A firm goat’s milk cheese with a red wine washed rind. This D.O.P. cabra is smooth at first with a distinct goat flavor at the finish. $20.00/lb
Wine of the Week
Gilbert Picq Chablis Vaucoupin 1er Cru ’18 “The 2018 Chablis Vaucoupin Premier Cru is a sensual, open-knit wine. A bit shy at first, it opens up beautifully in the mid-palate and finish, with striking layers of fruit that give the wine its racy, voluptuous feel. Tropical fruit, pastry, vanillin and sweet spice give the 2018 a lot of exotic character. This is an ample, creamy and open-knit wine with terrific persistence and tons of class; it is very refined for the year.” (91-93 Pts) Vinous $64.99/btl
