• 2019 Jungle Vino – Cabernet Sauvignon – Dunnigan Hills, California
This bottled Cabernet Sauvignon opens with leather, smoke and mesquite, giving way to a wonderful tug of war between dark fruits, black cherries and blackberries intertwined with subtle spices, cloves and star anise. The entire taste profile is framed by tough tannins that are big enough for our kafta kebabs and still offer space for our salmon and other spicy dishes.
• • 2019 Jungle Vino – Chardonnay – Dunnigan Hills, California
True to the terroir of the Dunnigan Hills, this Chardonnay offers a careful balance between fruit and subtle oak. Heavy and with a long finish, a parade of apricot, butterscotch and honey unfolds a complex fermentation character that is pleasantly confusing.

If there are three things Italians are best at, it’s pizza, pasta and wine, and the Italian daughter does them all! Enjoy first class wine from all over the world with fresh homemade pasta or crispy Sicilian pizza. We recommend the Calanica Frappato ($ 9 by the glass), which is sourced from the owner’s home island, Sicily, Italy. It pairs best with the restaurant margherita pizza ($ 14) and sausage board ($ 23), which comes with artisanal meats, aged cheeses, traditional Italian spreads, and crispy, fresh toast.
