Complimentary Wine Tasting

Friday, June 5th from 5-7pm

This week, wines from our virtual tastings!

We will be pouring…

2019 Peay Cep Vineyards Hopkins Sauvignon Blanc

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Russian River Valley, California

This Sauvignon Blanc is unique and may be easiest to understand by comparing it to other regions. It does not have the fruity sweetness found in New Zealand or the melon and gooseberry oak inflected fatness of most California Sauvignon Blanc. It is also not grassy like a typical Sancerre but there is bright acidity, mineral, citrus and green notes.

2018 Viña Pomal Bianco

70% Viura & 30% Malvasia

DOCa Rioja, Spain

A pale yellow with slight greyish steel hues. A rich aromatic bouquet. Notes of white fruit, citrus and fennel with a light toastiness from aging in oak. Friendly and fresh on the palate, transmits the balance of the fruit with certain notes of salinity. Good length and volume provide the fineness of a single area where we work these strains of white. Four months barrel aging with lees contact.

2018 Prá Morandina Valpolicella Red

Blend of traditional Valpolicella grapes Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Oseleta

Valpolicella, Veneto, Italy

Bright red color with tints of purple. The mineral notes in the wine are accentuated with the period of maturation in the bottle. The nose is of sharp spice and berries. On the palate it has good acidity and freshness. The persistent tannins give harmony to the wine. An aftertaste of black pepper and currant. The grapes undergo a light drying period of 20 days. The grapes are destemmed, pressed and vinified with délestage method. Alcoholic fermentation followed by malolactic one in vertical stainless steel vats. 3-6 months aging in 20 hl oak cask of Allier.

2018 Clos Roussely Rouge

80 Côt (Malbec) & 20% Cabernet Franc

Chenonceaux, Touraine, France

The wine’s color is a garnet red and its aromas are particularly delicate with notes of very ripe red fruits. The attack in the mouth is ample and supple with excellent balance. Does see barrel aging. Organic & Biodynamic.
