2012 Albert Bichot Beaujolais Nouveau, ABC, France
Albeit the bottles says Nouveau, time in the bottle has improved the drinkability of the wine. For a wine meant to be consumed now (fall 2012), this is almost too tannic. It does have the necessary bright fruit, but it still has a dry core of fruit tannins, with a flavor of black currant skin.
Regular Price $9 each, Now $7 each or 12 for $76 (We are pouring this wine on Tuesday and Thursday for only $2 a glass. Stop in for a glass and leave with a case!)
2009 Maryhill, Rose of Sangiovese, Columbia Valley, Washington
The color is a shiny, glistening salmon pink. The nose is a mix of white wine and red wine aromas, grapefruit, watermelon, pineapple, sweet cherry and a light floral edge. This is a dry Rose’, no sweet wine here. It starts with light creamy strawberries, follow by tart, slightly sour cherry. The mid palate introduces an interesting astringent texture, along with pink grapefruit and Anjou pear. The acidity shows up on the finish, it is balanced, but it has you smacking your lips as the finish lingers on. -Winemakers notes.
Regular Price $9 each, Now $5 each or 12 for $54
2011 Veleta Tempranillo Rose, Calidad, Spain
ripe cherry and strawberry splashing around in this reservoir of white spice and red plums. Finishes crisp and dry.
