2011 Sawtooth Skyline Red

2011 Sawtooth Skyline Red

Rain, rain and more rain……..what could be better than sipping wine while watching the drops fall by the windows. Join us tonight for our Wednesday night taste. And I must admit, the wine from Idaho is GREAT!

NV Lamberti Proseco Extra Dry, DDOC, Italy

Floral aromas with peach and tropical fruit notes mark this delicious Prosecco. Lively and effervescent, the palate is clean and crisp with balanced acidity and a lingering finish.

2011 Wallace Brooks Cellars Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon

Complex nose of red fruits and vanilla. The supple mouth feel layers raspberry and red cherry fruit, and is complemented by balanced oak and well-integrated tannins.

2011 J Lohr Highlands Bench Pinot Noir, Santa Lucia Highlands, Monterey, California

Intensely colored, fuschia-red Pinot Noir presents the jammy, wild strawberry dimensions of SLH terroir in its aroma. The bouquet is a fine layer of espresso coffee and sandalwood. Richly textured and supple, this inaugural vintage of Highlands Bench Pinot Noir leaves ripe fruit and a touch of sage on the finish. -Steve Peck, Red Winemaker

2011 Sawtooth Winery, Skyline Red, Snake River Valley, Nampa, Idaho

A complex red blend with inviting blackberry, rhubarb and red currant aromas on the nose. The rich palate highlights devleoped Bing cherry and plum fruit rounded out with spice notes. Velvety tannins lead to a wonderful finish with lingering fruit.

2012 Marchesi di Barolo ‘Maria’ Barbera del Monfessato, DDOC, Italy

A dark, succulent red, exuding black cherry, blackberry and violet aromas and flavors. Pure and focused, with a long aftertaste of sweet fruit, flowers and spice. 2011 vintage was 90 pts WS and *Top 100 Wines of 2012 and a Best Value*
