2007 Amon-Ra Shiraz

2007 Amon-Ra Shiraz

What a great tasting this Wednesday evening. A once in a time chance to taste 2007 AMON-Ra Shiraz from Ben Glaetzer or the new release of the 2012 BR Cohn cabernet sauvignon. Stop in for a taste or two this Wednesday evening.

2013 Adelsheim Chardonnay, Willamette Valley, Oregon

This Chardonnay features intense fruit character and a luscious texture. It offers fresh, crisp flavors of pear, white peach, star fruit and kiwi. ~wine makers notes

2009 The Conway Family ‘Deep Sea’ red blend, Central Coast, California

Deep Sea Red is The Conway Family signature, proprietary red blend. Composed of five grape varieties, this wine shows complex fruit and earth flavors supported by subtle French Oak Integration.

2012 Michel Torino ‘Don David’ Malbec Reserve, Calchaqui Valley, Argentina

The nose shows blueberry, boysenberry, charcoal, plenty of oak and hints of cardamom and star anise. A lush, layered palate is intense but doesn’t hit too hard, while concentrated blackberry, licorice and spice flavors set up a peppery, minty finish that’s stout and structured.

2012 BR Cohn Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa and Sonoma Valley, California

The B.R. Cohn 2012 Gold Label Cabernet Sauvignon ($40) comes from low-yielding vineyard sites in some of the finest appellations, including Howell Mountain, Spring Mountain, Atlas Peak and Rutherford in Napa Valley and the B.R. Cohn Olive Hill estate vineyard in Sonoma Valley, Chalk Hill and Alexander Valley. The blend is 67 percent Napa County and 33 percent Sonoma County. Winemaker Tom Montgomery aged the lots separately in the finest tight-grain, air-dried French oak barrels and then blended them with an eye toward creating a finished wine with great complexity and balance. The B.R. Cohn Gold Label Cabernet Sauvignon will be sold in selected markets around the country. BR Cohn trade

2007 Ben Glaetzer AMON-Ra Shiraz, Barossa Valley, Australia

Vibrant color; saturated black fruits, fruitcake, licorice and an element of tar; terrific purity and drive, and despite the power, the palate is lithe and supple; complex, compelling and certainly representative of the very essence of the region. One of the best vintages produced. Best after 2009, 25+ years for aging. 94pts JH. This is a once in a time chance to taste!
