Spring Has Sprung Favorites – Free Friday (3-7pm) and Saturday (noon-4pm) Tastings This Week
With the arrival of “normal” Spring weather (including the occasional refreshing April shower!), it’s time to break out the warmer-weather whites, reds, and even pink wines! On Friday (3-7pm) and Saturday (noon-4pm) this week we’ll feature five great Spring-friendly wines during our absolutely free weekend tastings. Join us to sample:
Dom du Dragon Grande Cuvee Rosé Cotes de Provence 2016 – One of your favorite Provençal Rosés is better than ever in the excellent (if small) 2016 vintage. Plenty of strawberry and watermelon fruit lifted by lemon/lime acids and a fine hint of fresh herb. Even better on sale!
Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2015 - From organic grapes grown within sight of the windmills of La Mancha, this bursts with tangerine and sweet pink grapefruit aromas that carry on to the ripe, deeply flavored, palate. Delicious, fun, and punching well above it's price point (especially this weekend!)
Bruni Poggio d'Elsa Cabernet Sauvignon Sangiovese 2015 – When the winemaker names a wine for his mother (Elsa in this case), you know it has to be pretty fine! A rich and zesty blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese with a fleshy texture and brisk, pizza/pasta-friendly, finish.
Dom Du Tave Vinsobres Cuvee Paradis 2014 – One of our favorite Cotes du Rhones of the past few months is showing even better now! 70% Grenache made in tank and 30% Syrah done in barrel give this rich fruit and a nice chocolaty finish. Fire up the grill!
Jonata The Paring Syrah 2013 – If you’ve enjoyed this high-end winery’s Bordeaux Blend – The Paring Red – just wait until you taste their easy-drinking take on the grape that made them famous: Syrah. Lush, plush, smoky, meaty, and too much fun to drink.
As always, all the wines will be on sale and will mix/match for any six or 12 bottle discounts. If the wine rack is looking a bit empty, come on by, find some new favorites, and stock up on great wines at fine tasting discounts. We look forward to seeing you!
