May 28, 2014 Line Up

Big and Rich! Four great red wines that exhibit rich, full, flavors but easy on the palate with lush smooth flavors and easy integrated tannins. Stop in for a taste this Wednesday night from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.

 

Featured wines:

2012 Graffigna Centenario Pinot Grigio Reserve, San Juan , Argentina

Bright clear gold. Hints of jasmine and notes of white fruits like peach and apricot, with a refined finish

2012 Garnacha de Fuego, old vines, Aragon, Spain

Intense aromas of sweet cherries and dark plums with exotic spicy finish reminiscent of white pepper.

2010 B-Side Red Wine Blend, Napa Valley, California

The wine opens with a heady bouquet of black cherries, dried plums, blackberries and peat moss. One’s first sip is greeted by a flavorful cacophony of black currants, dried blueberries, and Blackstrap molasses with hints of black pepper and toasted coconut emerging on the finish. This full-bodied wine is lush and rich with finely integrated tannins

2012 Gran Passione Rosso, Veneto, Italy

Full in body, dark in color, rich in berry flavors and soft in tannins, the Gran Passione is a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Corvina. The Corvina is allowed to dry using the appassimento method, causing the fruit concentration and sugar levels to increase. It is the same technique used to make Amarone, and it is rarely used in wines as well-priced as this one! Look for some Amarone character along with ripe fruit flavors of dried cherry, raisin, prune and chocolate, and a hint of residual sugar.

2009 Conn Creek Anthology Red Blend, Napa Valley, California

Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot,  Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot

Rich aromas of black fruits reminiscent of Loganberry pie nestle among toasted spices, fennel, and beeswax. Juicy dark berries drive the flavors with added notes of cream, vanilla, and spice. Fine grained tannins form a luxurious structure that supports the lingering mouth-filling finish.
