Weekend Wine Tastings

Sake Tasting with Manny Gonzalez
Friday, September 21st, 5 to 8pm

Featured Wines

Joto Graffiti Cup Honjozo, Okayama, Japan
Regularly $4.99, Tasting Price $4.24
A Honjozo style sake using local rice grown just outside of the brewery. Has a soft melon aromatic with a richer palate. This is how Japanese unwind on the train when heading home from a long days work. This is Okayama’s #1 selling One Cup

Seikyo Junmai 720ml, Hiroshima, Japan
Regularly $26.99, Tasting Price $22.94
Coming from Hiroshima this is brewed by the Famous Nakao Brewery. A rich mid palate and savory notes dominate the structure with hints of ripe papaya and mango on the finish. This is the sake to drink with prosciutto and melon!

Yuki no Bosha Junmai Ginjo 300ml, Akita, Japan
Regularly $19.99, Tasting Price $16.99
Coming from the far north of Akita the cold mountain spring waters from fresh snow melt give this a soft aromatic of strawberry and peach with a medium dry finish. This is elegance through and through

Joto Junmai Daiginjo 300ml, Hiroshima, Japan
Regularly $24.99, Tasting Price $20.99
Another secret of the Nakao Brewery, this uses an apple yeast discovered by the brewery in 1947. The aromas of apple skins and cherries are unmistakable. The palate is linear with a bright floral finish. This is unique as it is pretty and a great match for sashimi, sushi or even a pizza!

 

 

Fall Wines with Dave Saul
Saturday, September 22nd, 4 to 7pm

Featured Wines

Nv Szigeti Sparkling Grunerveltliner, Burgenland, Austria
Regularly $22.99, Tasting Price 19.54
This Grüner Veltliner is delicate, yet complex, with a mellow citrus color-appealing peppery note, elegantly fresh fruit and fine Mousseux with an invigorating finish. Bubbles are great with brunch items like omelets or eggs benedict.

2016 Hugel ‘Gentil’, Alsace, France
Regularly $14.99, Tasting Price $12.74
Fresh citrus and floral aromas and flavors are simple and bright. Offers surprising texture for an entry-level wine, finishing bright and clean, with average length. A very complex blend of Sylvaner, Riesling and Pinot Gris, plus a little Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Muscat d’Ottonel and Muscat d’Alsace. This wine is great for all occasions, appetizers, dinner or just hanging out.

2014 Scarpetta Barbera del Monferrato, Piedmont, Italy
Regularly $19.99, Tasting Price $16.99
Aromas of crushed tart cherries and plums. Hint of earth and porcini mushrooms. On the palate, medium-bodied with low tannins and bright acidity, giving it wonderful balance. Terrific food wine, pair with pasta or pizza.

2016 Smith & Hook Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles, California
Regularly $24.99, Tasting Price $20.99
This Cab offers the ripe black currant and plum character that epitomizes how this grape variety is expressed in the Central Coast, with additional layers of spice and black cherry flavors lingering on the finish. It is nuanced and should age well for several years.
