TIME TO EXPERIENCE COVA'S HIGHLY ALLOCATED WINES
WINE OF THE WEEK
2005 Mas Belles Eaux "Les Coteaux"
This is the time of year when many wineries release some of their most highly sought after gems. Of these, some are cult wines and others are limited production highly rated treasures. Many are listed in the "Top 100 Wines of the World" by a popular wine periodical. Usually, by the time this list is published the vast majority of the wines are sold out. However, at Cova, because we taste myriad wines yearly, we usually know what wines will make the list before it's published, and stock up on them. In particular, we knew that the wine we poured by the glass for weeks, the 95-Point Tignanello Cabernet Blend would be in the top 5, so we stockpiled dozens of cases so that everyone would get an opportunity to try this delicious juice. So, if you want one of the "world's best wines", we have it available while quantities last (limit 3 bottles per customer please).
Below, you'll find a partial list of other allocated wines that are available at Cova now! Some are in the Top 100, while others are cult wines that are generally only available in restaurants.
If there's something on the list that you must have, then don't hesitate. Call us and charge hold them to guarantee your bottles! Kirby 713-838-0700
$21.99 (with case purchase) $24.99 (per individual bottle)
This blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre is full of character! It has plenty of ripe forest fruit, plum,
and black .htmlberry, however, it also possesses a Southern France "Provencal like rusticity." Hints of earth,
wild herbs and an attractive meaty streak help to make this blend unique. The finish is long with hints of
Eastern spices echoing for nearly a minute. Serve this with nearly any meat from the grill. 90 Points M.H.

Cova’s Wine Bar:
The Cova Wine Bar is open at 11AM Mon-Sat for guests to enjoy wines from our selection of 40 wines that we offer by the taste and by the
glass. We also offer 10 flights, which is a selection of three wines
grouped by theme. Flights let you experience many different taste
sensations and can be very educational. Each wine is served in a tasting
size and represents a savings over ordering them as three separate tastes.
Our wine list changes every Friday to keep the selections new and exciting
for our guests. Along with our extensive wine list, every wine we have in
Cova Hand-Selected Wines is available to purchase and open for a minimal
$10 corkage fee.
For guests that would like to visit us before 5 PM, we have cheese plates
in both tapas and racion sizes, the tapa being a selection of 4 of our 14
different cheeses, and the racion a selection of 4 with the addition of
Finocchiona, Cacciatore, Speck Alto-Adige and Jamon Serrano.
We start serving food from our tapas menu at 5PM daily, and are open until
11PM Mon-Thu and 1AM Fri & Sat. Our tapas menu is updated weekly with fresh and interesting ingredients and new menu items designed by our
Executive Chef, Eric Lawhon.
