Winter Wine Tasting with Sarah Mark
Friday, December 7th, 5 to 8pm

Featured Wines

2017 Scala Ciro Bianco, Calabria, Italy
Regularly $16.99, Tasting Price $14.44
Creamy and sweet in the mid-palate, with flavors of ripe tangerine and dried apricot accented by herbal nuances. A medium-bodied, soft wine with enough freshness to keep it lively and interesting.  Try with pasta aglio e olio.

2017 Poe Rose, Napa, California
Regularly $24.99, Tasting Price $20.99
This wine is like drinking liquid rose petals and wild strawberries. Light and dry, floral and precise, this wine dances across the palate and is just so enticing. Though summer is a distance memory this is still a great wine for roast chicken.

2013 Poe Ferrington Vineyard Chardonnay, Mendocino, California
Regularly $49.99, Tasting Price $42.49
The superb nose delivers a complex mix of delicious apple, white peach, gentle notes of acacia and lemon blossoms, delicate leesy tones, salty soil and a discreet framing of buttery oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, crisp and complex, with a superb core of fruit, bright acids, impeccably focus and grip and a long, vibrant finish. The perfect Chardonnay for pan roasted salmon and white beans.

2017 Ayres Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Regularly $24.99, Tasting Price $20.99
Aromas of fresh strawberry and pomegranate are given depth by subtle cola and violet nuances. Sappy and energetic, offering juicy red fruit preserve flavors that become more intense with air. Closes on a spicy note, with clarity and length. Pinot from almost anywhere is great option for slight sweet meats like pork and, of course, duck.

2017 Reva Dolcetto d’Alba, Piedmont, Italy
Regularly $19.99, Tasting Price $16.99
Full-bodied Dolcetto with dark fruit flavors including cassis and currant complemented by earthy notes. Nicely balanced with fresh acidity and a persistent finish. Try with browned butter and sage pasta.
