Wine Tasting with Carmen Patti
Friday, August 17th, 5 to 8pm

Featured Wines

2016 Anne Amie Muller Thurgau, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Regularly $14.99, Tasting Price $12.74
This estate-grown Muller-Thurgau comes from vines first planted in 1979. Crisp, fresh, and dry, it is a charming example of the variety at its best. From chicken to shellfish, this wine is a versatile match for mildly spicy foods like Thai, Creole, or Mexican.

2016 Benevenuti Malvasia, Istria, Croatia
Regularly $16.99, Tasting Price $14.44
Malvasia Istriana is now recognized as the leading Istrian grape variety and one of the most important indigenous Croatian varieties. This Malvasia is harmonious and full-bodied. It is exceptionally fresh and mineral, fruity and very drinkable. The terraced vineyards on white soil where the grapes are grown are planted on several positions, all between 250 and 400 meters high. Fish crudo, oysters or any other summertime favorite would be great.

2017 Joseph Mellot Sancerre Rosé, Loire Valley, France
Regularly $26.99, Tasting Price $22.94
The clear, luminous salmon-pink color is characteristic of Pinot Noir rose wines. The nose develops floral notes at first and then raspberry scents. There is a full taste with a freshness at the end giving it a lasting quality. Fresh, with delicate aromas. This wine would be beautiful with grilled pork.

2013 Jelu Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina
Regularly $14.99, Tasting Price $12.74
This is a Malbec fermented in stainless steel. This wine has flavors of black plum, red raspberry and blueberry. Try with steaks, burgers and other hearty meat dishes.

2015 Revelry Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, Washington
Regularly $19.99, Tasting Price $16.99
Washington State’s Cabernet Sauvignon is distinctive for its deep red fruit qualities, defined tannin structure and developed balance. Revelry sources their Cabernet fruit from vineyards around the valley, targeting warm growing sites. It is in these areas [Red Mountain, The Wahluke Slope, Horse Heaven Hills, Walla Walla Valley] that the ‘King of Grapes’ ripens most intensely. This is a great steak wine.

 

Wine Tasting with Dave Saul
Saturday, August 18th, 4 to 7pm

Featured Wines

2016 Domaine Mardon ‘Tres Vieille Vigne’ Quincy, Loire Valley, France
Regularly $21.99, Tasting Price $18.69
Highly perfumed, incisive, mineral-driven nose displays lemongrass, pear, mint and honeysuckle. Lively, sharply focused citrus flavors show an edgy, stony quality and a touch of fennel. This is a beautiful for oysters.

2016 Castello della Sala ‘Bramito’ Chardonnay, Umbria, Italy
Regularly $21.99, Tasting Price $18.69
Brilliant yellow in color with greenish highlights, the wine shows fresh and complex aromas with delicate notes of tropical fruit, such as pineapple, and of citrus fruit, hazelnut butter and vanilla. It is a wine of good structure, elegance, and a mineral character perceptible in its vibrant and balanced acidity, well fused with the notes of fruit. Try this with grilled salmon.

2016 Cantina del Pino Barbera d’Asti, Piedmont, Italy
Regularly $19.99, Tasting Price $16.99
Bright red fruit flavors of ripe raspberry, tart red plum and sweet cherry. This wine is bright, fresh and delicious try with grilled pork.

2015 Chateau Belle Garde Rouge, Bordeaux, France
Regularly $11.99, Tasting Price $9.99
Some lovely grip and texture here, with classic cassis, tobacco leaf, tea and coffee notes. As you would expect, some nice structure from the ripe tannins, decent dark fruit core and then nice length of flavor. Everyday Bordeaux that’s great for backyard barbecue with burgers.
