Sangrias at Sonoma
Sonoma on Richmond Avenue has an impressive wine selection and a wonderful menu of fruits, artisan cheeses, cured meats and gourmet entrees. It also offers a decent sangria.
Two of Sonoma's three sangria options are average. The rose sparkling sangria, however, is worth reordering. The sweeter wine gives the glass a delicious candy-like quality that isn't quite Spanish, but we aren't complaining.
Sonoma offers sangrias for $5 on Tuesdays, making it just about the only day you shouldn't show up and slide into their pillowed booths to sit and sip by tea light. Every day of the week you can find "wine therapy" specials on Sonoma's more signature items, such as gourmet pizzas, imported beers and red wine by the glass.
