It’s the first day of spring, and we need some flowers in our glasses. Rosés to be exact! Gassier Esprit 2016 Côtes de Provence blossoms on an organic estate and is a fragrant blend of red berries, papaya and peaches. It’s crisp, dry and a great way to celebrate new beginnings. Cheers! Château Gassier
If you’re still shaking your shamrocks after a great Saint Patty’s Day weekend or just looking for some work-week motivation, Heidi Schröck’s 2016 Furmint is a cool, dry, spicy and herbal refresh for the palette. An exotic grape from Austria, this wine is a fresh spring garden in your mouth. Cheers!
Today’s a day to toss aside the Rosé! Cold weather is the perfect time to try the latest release of a stellar California Cabernet. Named after Manuel Pires’s Grandfather Gandona, or “humble man,” this humble, 100% Pritchard Hill Cabernet from winemaker Philippe Melka is exquisite. It is austere with great soil characteristics of wood and leather. Drink now or hold for years to come. Cheers!
Only a few spots left to join us in tasting these classic Barolos at tomorrow evening’s Italian tasting! In 1965 Renato Ratti purchased his first Barolo vineyard on the slopes leading to the village of La Morra, followed in the 70’s with production of the Conca and Rocche crus. At this time, his contribution to vinification techniques included shortening fermentation, maceration and oak barrel aging time. As the president of the Barolo Consortium, and though his involvement in other organization, Ratti also helped develop regulations and historic archives for the region. Blah, blah, blah…just call us to reserve your seat! Cheers!
Don’t let the soft, subtle exterior fool you. This Enderle & Moll 2015 Liaison Pinot Noir is light in color but strong in flavor. It begins with a bold nose and follows with dark, well concentrated black fruit and spiciness. It is smooth yet has firm structure and a chalky, fresh mouthfeel. This wine proves that Germany represents the Pinot Noir grape with the best of them. A great wine on a chilly night for those looking for an alternative to more traditionally bold reds. Cheers!
This Thursday’s Italian tasting is not to be missed! We will taste through a variety of classic Italian grapes from popular wine regions, including two from Allegrini. The Allegrini 2013 Amarone is a classic Valpolicella blend and Allegrini’s ‘La Poja’ is produced with single-vineyard Corvina grapes grown at high elevation in rocky soil to produce concentrate flavors. Only a few seats left, so book your’s today! Call 561-276-2076 or visit our web site. Cheers!
