WHAT & WHY…While grilling season is getting a boost from warming temps, Saturday’s tasters
will be treated to four muscular and complex bottles, a full-bodied red & white from  California, a bold Washington Cabernet blend, and a truly complex Oregon Pinot Noir that Harry will explain.  Recognizing farmers‚Äô markets with native produce are beginning to popup, our
two French Rose offerings, one from Corsica, match beautifully with spring-summer salads and the obligatory baguette.  We import our popular frozen baguettes from Canada, a must try.
Always complimentary tastings, with the experience elevated sipping from imported Riedel stemware.

Vineyard Block Estate, 827 Reserve Chardonnay, Santa Lucia Highlands, CA, 2019, Alc. 14.5%Varietals: Chardonnay, Tasting: Chardonnay grown in the cool climes of Santa Lucia Highlands retains a notable freshness, due to acidity in the grapes.

A powerful white wine.
Pairs Well: Mushroom-forward dishes, grilled pork chops, Vegetarian, rich fish ( salmon, tuna) roast chicken, Rating: The Wine Buyer 92pts‚Ķ. $17.99

Varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Tasting: Produced from old vines, this particularly rich wine has spice and pepper to go with the fruit.

Pairs Well: braised short ribs, veal dishes, game (deer, venison) grilled chicken breast‚Ķ$27.99 

Dead Canyon Ranch Cabernet, Mercer Estates, Horse Heaven Hills, Washington, 2019 Alc. 14.1Varietals: Shiraz/Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Tasting: Aromas of ripe black fruit with notes of baked blackberry pie, warm baking spices and earthly undertones.

Gait Zinfandel, Howell Mt., North Coast, Napa Valley, CA, 2018, Alc. 14.7

Full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling black fruit preserves flavors textured by chewy tannins, finishing long and spicy. Pairs Well: roast leg of lamb, standing rib roast, roasted whole chicken, artisan cheese burgers, Rating: Robert Parker 91pts, Jeb Dunnuck 95pts… $21.99

SAWYER FREE 2025 CAMPAIGN GETS $200,000 BOOST FROM MASS CULTURAL COUNCIL

Gloucester, MA‚ÄĒSawyer Free 2025 (visit sawyerfree2025.org), a newly launched philanthropic capital campaign to fund a comprehensive renovation, modernization and expansion of Gloucester‚Äôs public library building, has already won a $200,000 state grant award. MassDevelopment and the Mass Cultural Council have announced that Sawyer Free Library‚Äôs mission to transform Gloucester‚Äôs cultural, educational and community hub will receive one of 94 capital grants from the organizations‚Äô FY22 Cultural Facilities Fund (CFF).  

The Sawyer Free 2025 project will preserve the original exterior, which will house a fully redesigned interior, and will also double the size of the existing library’s footprint with a 15,000-square foot addition.

‚ÄúThe campaign went public only a week ago and already it‚Äôs been endorsed by the Commonwealth in the form of a six-figure grant award,‚ÄĚ said Barry Weiner, a retired attorney and the campaign chair for Sawyer Free 2025. ‚ÄúThis is a tremendous validation of our vision to fund this once-in-a-lifetime investment in a vital community resource. We are more optimistic than ever that our fellow citizens of Gloucester as well as residents across Cape Ann and the North Shore will respond to this show of support from the state and rise to this occasion with donations both big and small.‚ÄĚ

The design principles of Sawyer Free 2025 are grounded in the human experience and an ambition to put people first. The newly renovated and expanded Gloucester Lyceum and Sawyer Free Library will stand as an exemplar of what a 21st century civic nexus can and should be in terms of architecture, accessibility, sustainability, the use of natural resources and light, layouts, lines of sight, air quality and public safety. The end product will exponentially amplify the library‚Äôs ability to deliver critical services and outcomes not only for Gloucester, but for communities across Cape Ann and the North Shore as a place of equity, inclusion, connection, creation, compassion, renewal and advancement. 

‚ÄúSawyer Free Library has a broader reach than any other single organization in the community,‚ÄĚ said Jenny Benedict, library director ‚ÄúThis new space will provide so many more opportunities to connect and collaborate with our more than 100 partner community service providers and will deepen our collective impact on the city of Gloucester.‚ÄĚ

The Sawyer Free 2025 project‚Äôs total cost is $28 million, a sum that includes built-in inflation costs through completion of the project in 2025. The Sawyer Library Foundation, the fundraising arm of the campaign, has already inspired $14.3 million in pledged donations and grant awards. The completion of the new facility‚ÄĒfeaturing a sound studio, a film studio, a digital tech lab and 110-seat community meeting space‚ÄĒwill result in a 25-percent increase in annual visitors, a 25-percent increase in the number of public programs offered each month by the library and a 50-percent increase in the number of programs hosted at the library by partner agencies.

The Mass Cultural Council grant fund supports investments in cultural facilities and projects throughout the Commonwealth with capital and planning grants for nonprofit organizations, colleges and municipalities that own or operate facilities primarily focused on the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences. CFF grants are administered to support the acquisition, design, construction, repair, renovation, rehabilitation or other capital improvements, or deferred maintenance of a cultural facility.

‚ÄúThese kinds of attractions foster community, build our creative economy and bring vibrancy and visitors to Massachusetts,‚ÄĚ said MassDevelopment President and CEO Dan Rivera. ‚Äú(These grants) will support our partners in the cultural sector.‚ÄĚ
