Classic Frank!

Classic movie poster from Man with the Golden Arm, circa 1955. Directed by Otto Preminger and starring Frank Sinatra and Kim Novak.

Frankie Machine (Sinatra), expert card dealer, is recently released from prison. Frankie is determined to set his life in order -- and that means divesting himself of his drug habit. He dreams of becoming a jazz drummer, but his greedy wife wants him to continue his lucrative gambling activities.

Good stuff...

Gotta Have the Bubbles!

Check out some of our newest sparkling picks. Perfect for this month's upcoming festivities!

NV Allimant Laugner Cremant d'Alsace Rosé $19.99 France

Dry, Alsatian rosé bubbly for under $20. Made in the traditional Methode Champenoise from 100% Pinot Noir. Wonderful, refreshing strawberry fruit and a crisp, flowery tang. Great acidity and tonically good fruit with fine bubbles.

NV Ruelle-Pertois Blanc de Blanc 1er Cru $36.99 France

This is a small, family run champagne producer located in the town of Moussy. Their various vineyard parcels total just under 15 acres, from which just over 4,000 cases of champagne are made a year. Their Côtes de Blancs vineyards (comprising 50% of their holdings) are located in Cramant, Chouilly and Oiry, all considered 100% Grand Cru for Chardonnay. Great, elegant Champagne for a great price.

NV Pierre Moncuit Grand Cru Champagne $39.99 France

(91 Points: International Wine Cellar) Pale, green-tinged color. Captivating nose combines lime blossom, minerals, coriander seed, green peppercorn and baking spices, along with suggestions of toffee and toasted nuts. Intensely flavored, concentrated and dense, with juicy acids lending brightness to this chewy wine. A rich midweight with excellent length on the aftertaste.
