Wines of the Month for June Virtual Tasting
June 25th 2020 at 6:30pm
2019 Hubert Brochard Sancerre Tradition
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Sancerre, Loire Valley, France
Sancerre Tradition comes from six different communes in the Sancerre appellation from approximately 40% limestone, 30% flint, and 30% clay. All the parcels are estate-owned and have an average vine age of 30 years. Grapes are destemmed and pressed pneumatically with vinification entirely in stainless-steel tanks. Sancerre Tradition is intended as a classic expression of the appellation with aromas and flavors of citrus, fresh herbs, and elderflower. The wine’s medium weight and texture are lifted by firm acidity. Components of flint and limestone lend a strong mineral character to the finish, making it an appetizing wine for the table.
2017 Obsidian Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon
96% Cabernet Sauvignon 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec
Red Hills Lake County, California
Your nose is teased with coffee nibs, blueberries and black pepper, but a shy side emerges after time in the glass: blackberries and a gentle floral lift. Flavors of dark chocolate, coffee and fresh blackberry are carried on silky tannins—they speak clearly, but don’t shout. Aged for 18 months in 45% New, Medium Toast Plus and Heavy Toast Kádár Barrels
