Mochi (pronounced MOE-chee) is traditionally a Japanese dessert that is made of sweet glutinous rice flour, or mochigome. With a chewy, smooth, elastic texture, Mochi dough is wrapped around a sweet center to form small, bite-size delight. Our Mochi is made locally by the artisans from Summer Bakery. Each Mochi is individually made by hand, the Mochi dough encases fresh fruit and delicately whipped cream. This light, delicate dessert will have you coming back for more!

As the name suggests, the blend is an atypical 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Franc--meaning the wine has to carry the Vin de France designation. But who cares, it’s a stunning example of Côtes de Blaye, so blending regulations be damned! This is superb--an intense, ripe, dark cherry and anise spice-noted wine with super-fine tannins. There is excellent depth and intensity and mouth-watering freshness to close. This has fabulous purity of fruit and is incredibly easy to drink.

From one of the region’s great addresses, this is a punchy and buoyant red that goes down dangerously easily!
