Tasting Notes August 1, 2015

We are introducing four new wines to the store this Saturday:

Nals Margreid Kerner $14.49
Spreading its roots on moraine soils mixed with primitive rocks, our Kerner develops its vivid acidity and racy elegance. The fleeting, fruity bouquet of peach, apricot and mandarin flatters the palate with its pleasant fruit and freshness. Perfect as an aperitif or accompanying light, summery dishes and salads.

Txomin Etxaniz Txakoli $24.99
This delicious wine is yellow in color with a fruity aroma. It is slightly acidic and carbonated in the mouth with a persistent flavor. Pairs well with an array of starters, fish and seafood and recommended with salted anchovies and tuna in oil.

Prodigo Nero D Avola $10.99

Tasting Notes July 25, 2015

This week we have the lovely Lisa Kysela as our special guest pourer!

Flora Springs Chardonnay $17.99
Our 2013 vintage shows rich aromas of juicy green pear and candied ginger with a hint of crème fraiche and vanilla bean. The palate is bright and crisp, bursting with juicy Granny Smith apples and lemongrass. An underlying creaminess - reminiscent of fresh baked brioche - adds warmth to this crisp, refreshing Chardonnay, which finishes with spicy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Casale Marches Frascati $18.49
A zesty wine, that is robust, with a soft, elegant, mouth filling finish. Frascati should always be consumed before the next harvest starts. Casale Marchese Frascati is very drinkable even as early as February-March, but it comes into its own as summer approaches, enhanced by a brief stay in the bottle.

Flora Springs Merlot $22.99
Flora’s favorite, our Napa Valley Merlot is a soft, supple red wine made to open in the near term. The 2013 bears a red fruit bouquet of Bing cherry and red currant mixed with white chocolate, light cedar and acacia flowers. The mouth has a dense core of purple fruit, reminiscent of kirsch liqueur, and the wine’s velvety tannins melt away on a sweet vanilla note.

Laetitia Estate Pinot Noir$20.99
Bursting from the glass are notes of cranberry and juicy mulberry, followed by sarsaparilla and freshly-grated nutmeg. Bright, crisp acidity frames youthful flavors of pomegranate, red cherry and sandalwood with a hint of the classic Laetitia spice. Although very approachable now, this wine will age gracefully for years to come. Look to pair with cedar-plank salmon and roasted mushrooms with herbs and goat cheese.
