Wednesday Night Taste

 

Join us tonight for our Wednesday night wine tasting beginning at 5:30pm. Five great wines to help with the rain showers today….all five wines for only $17.25

Featured wines:

2011 JC Cellars First Date, Roussanne – Marsanne blend, Paso Robles, California

Only 224 cases made. This is a structured and round Rhone-inspired white, which is aged in our cement egg to showcase and maintain brightness.  The nose is filled with hints of fresh peach, shelled raw almond, and a touch of crème.  Aromatically, there’s a seductive richness that is beginning to come out to really highlight the richness of the fruit.

2009 Ares de Medeiros Tinto, Allentejo, Portugal

Full bodies with dark baked fruit flavors, some cigar and tobacco aromas leading to a soft, spicy finish. Big wine for the money.

2010 Runquist Charbono, El Dorado County, California

The 2010 Charbono has a deep purple color with bright youthful hues which is typical of a high acid variety.  Despite Charbono’s reputation for producing a wine with an ‘earthy/woodsy’ aroma our 2010 wine features a focus on black currants and dark fruits.  Time in small oak barrels adds a bit of vanilla to the bouquet and a richness to the wine’s texture.  Given this wine’s color one might expect a tannic monster, but the flavors are bright and fruit driven with tannins that while present are mature and integrated. ~Jeff Runquist Notes.

2010 JC Cellars Landy Zinfandel, Russian River Valley

Inky violet color with cassis, raspberry, cacao and a hint of leather aromas. On the palate it’s full-bodied, extracted, and silky smooth with well-behaved tannins and ripe blackberry, raspberry, cassis, cacao and vanilla flavors. Medium-long finish. 285 cares produced.

NV Shifflett Estate Cuvee, Napa Valley, California

Bordeaux style red blend. Ripe, with melted chocolate, black currant and touch of balsamic, with herb notes, modest tannin and nut character on the finish. Approximately 500 cases produced.
