And now for Wednesdays wine tasting featuring:

2011 Castra Rubra, Via Diagonalis, white, Thracian Valley, Bulgaria

Fleshy, juicy medium intensive aromas of ripe pear, melon, citrus and delicate white flowers in the  nose. Rounded and soft in the palate with melon flavors and medium aftertaste which reminiscent of white flowers and tropical fruits.

NV Rock Point River Rock Red, red wine, Oregon

Dark colored wine exhibiting aromas of red fruit, ripe cherry, forest and vanilla. Flavors of plum, olive, eucalyptus and spice are present. Full bodied, with large round tannins, it finishes long and dry

2008 Spann Vineyards Cabernet Franc, Alexander Valley, California

Aroma of raspberry, tea leaves and wildflowers, is medium bodied and immediately enjoyable or age for an additional 8 to 10 years. 45 Case production.

2005 Spann Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley, California

The nose has hints of strawberry for a full, complex aroma. The palate shows red cherries, layers of flavors and soft tannins. The warmer climate in Alexander Valley gives riper fruit and softer acidity for a richly textured full-throttle Cabernet mouth-feel. This Cabernet finishes silky-smooth and elegantly balanced. 200 case production.

2008 Midnight Cellars, Crescent Zinfandel, Paso Robles, California

It is ripe and dark and pleasantly hefty. Flavors of blackberries, currants and white pepper intermingle as the inky nature of this wine coats your palate. Extensive barrel aging in French oak has rounded this wine, leaving you with layers of dark fruit and spice. The finish is strong and long. 198 case production.
