Extreme Values Wine Tasting with Andrea Alexander
Friday, October 19th, 5 to 8pm

Featured Wines

NV El Xamfra Cava, Penedes, Spain
Regularly $11.99, Tasting Price $9.99
Bright yellow. Fruity fresh melon and nectarine notes fill the nose and mouth. The palate is smooth and open-knit, offering juicy honeydew, pit fruit and bracing, zesty bitter lemon. Finishes with good lift, cling and a subtle touch of spicy ginger. Try with grilled sardines.

2017 Brundlmeyer Grunerveltliner Terrassen, Kamptal, Austria
Regularly $26.99, Tasting Price $22.94
Happily, crunchy evocations of cucumber and fresh green bean along with an abundance of green herbal and stony nuances guarantee a finish of invigoration as well as refreshment, while a sweet-saline savor reminiscent of raw scallop activates the salivary glands. This is a great wine for cured meats, roasted veggies and alpine cheeses

2015 Selbach ‘Incline’ Riesling, Mosel, Germany
Regularly $12.99, Tasting Price $10.99
Vinified in stainless steel, with just a hint of residual sugar, this wine vividly represents all that Mosel wine should be – fruity with vibrant acidity, clarity, and precision; all highlighted by intense slate-driven minerality. As an introduction to what one can gleam from great Mosel wine, Selbach’s ‘Incline’ is incredible. This is a wonderful wine with mild curry or ginger laden Asian food.

2016 The Chard Project Chardonnay, California
Regularly $13.99, Tasting Price $11.89
This chardonnay has a rich, lovely mouthfeel. Pure chard aromas and flavors – fresh apples and citrus, and kissed with a touch of oak. The wine is great for pan roasted salmon.

2017 The Pinot Project Pinot Noir, California
Regularly $13.99, Tasting Price $11.89
Cool garnet in color with aromas of pomegranate and fresh roses, this wine is balanced on the palate with notes of black cherry and five-spice and a smooth, lingering finish. A delicious wine to bring to your fall gatherings.

Featured Wines

2017 Gerard Bertrand Pearls de Sauvignon Blanc, Cotes du Roussillon
Regularly $14.99, Tasting Price $12.74
A fresh vibrant wine from the powerhouse Languedoc producer, this boasts abundant aromas of green plum, gooseberry, orange rind and garrigue herbs. The lightweight palate is clean and refreshing, with a mouthwatering citrus verve to the close. Try with grilled fish.

2015 Gerard Bertrand Tautavel, Cote du Roussillon
Regularly $19.99, Tasting Price $16.99
Intensely fruity on the nose, with red fruit and raspberry aromas underpinned by complex, spicy notes.
A wonderful combination of supple tannins and delicate notes of scrubland and spices on the palate. This a great wine for grilled lamb.

NV J.J.Vincent Brut Cremant de Bourgogne, Burgundy
Regularly $19.99, Tasting Price $16.99
Bright and juicy, this balanced bubbly offers a lively bead and flavors of poached apricot, pastry and honey. Delivers a tangy, saline-tinged finish. Great with fried chicken, also with an array of Asian dishes.

2015 Cap Royal Bordeaux Superieur, Bordeaux
Regularly $17.99, Tasting Price $14.99
Made by Jean-René Matignon, technical director of Château Pichon Baron in Pauillac, the wine is finely structured, showing polished wood aging. The velvet black fruits and fine acidity are already well integrated. Perfectly cooked filet mignon would be great with this wine.

2015 Vidal Fleury Cote du Rhone, Rhone Valley
Regularly $14.99, Tasting Price $12.74
Cherry, raspberry and peppery spices on the nose and in the mouth. Supple and open-knit, with a slight jamminess and a touch of licorice adding a bitter edge. Closes on a spicy note, with a bit of heat and no obvious tannins. This is a wonderful wine for autumn stews and roasts.
