Wednesday Night Taste March 30, 2016

Join us Wednesday evening, March 30, 2016 beginning at 5:30pm for our weekly wine tasting. This weeks tasting features five great wines from around the world, California, France, Spain, Australia and New Zealand.

Featured Wines:

2012 Roaring Meg Riesling, Central Otago, New Zealand

Clean citrus and wet stone with lovely elderflower floral aromas adding complexity: the palate is dominated by succulent ripe citrus flavors. The wine is a medium-dry style with a lovely backbone of natural acidity. This wine beautifully displays the elegance and finesse of this versatile and interesting variety. You will be rewarded by careful cellaring. ~Winemakers Notes.

2012 Red Knot Shiraz, McLaren Vale, Australia

Deep magenta color. Alluring primary aromas of black cherry, strawberry and milk chocolate are highlighted with hints of roasted coffee bean and vanilla. The palate is a delicious compote of ripe summer berries, perfectly balanced with satiny fruit tannins and fresh acidity. This medium-full bodied.

2013 Messanges Rouge Chinon, ACC, France

Vibrant Bing cherry color bursting with classic Chinon aromas of ripe cherries, tobacco and cedar shavings. Full and round on the palate. Vibrant cherry and leafy blueberry fruit infused with notes of dried herbs, tobacco and autumnal leaves.

2010 Valdemar Inspiracion Seleccion Rioja, Rioja, Spain

Fresh and focused, this sleek, lively red shows black cherry, wild berry, licorice, mineral and toast flavors that glide over the palate, supported by well-integrated tannins and bright acidity.

2009 Mark Herold Wines, Acha, red blend, California

Mesmerizing aromas of black roasted fruits, cassis, sun baked rocks and hints of soy and caramelized orange.  The mouth is huge, full of sweet ripe black cherries, blackberries and black raspberries supported by very present, yet soft tannins. ~Winemakers Notes
