2010 Eco Terreno Three Vine Red

2010 Eco Terreno Three Vine Red

 

Join us this evening for our guess the varietal contest. I have a great easy drinking white wine for the patio………only $6 per bottle. I’ll post the name and varietal on Thursday.

 

2011 XXXXXXXXX, XXXXX, Dry White Wine, Bulgaria

Unique, dry, and has a very light and elegant flavor with great fruit character and a flowery bouquet. This wine is delicate yet lively, making it a happy choice for any patio sipper!

Guess the varietal contest. All the correct answer will be entered into a raffle for a $20 gift certificate towards dinner at The Wine Gallery

Name:

Varietal

2010 Finca Flichman Paisaje de Tupungato, Mendoza, Argentina

Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot
Ripe red fruits of plums and red currants with notes of vanilla. Concentrated and structures with balanced tannins and a persistent finish.

2011 Stama Old Vine Zinfandel, Lodi, California

Ripe and fruit and spice on the nose with soft easy pepper on the palate followed by a long, smooth finish.

2010 Eco Terreno ‘Three Vine Red’ Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California

Strong hints of terroir on the nose, with earthy saddle leather and smoky tobacco leaf balanced by dark cherry, boysenberry, toasted vanilla bean, and caramel. Layered and complex on the palate, with braised fruit of cherry, sweet plum, and blackberry laid overtop bittersweet chocolate, pomegranate black tea, dried cranberry, and sweet baking spices.

2009 Midnight Estate Zinfandel, Paso Robles, California

Intense and intriguing. Big, jammy, bright and youthful, this wine is true to its varietal. 30 months in French oak. 16.9% alcohol. Only 1000 cases produced.

We will post the white wine after the contest on June 25, 2014.
