Featured Wines

2016 Angelo Negro Arneis Serra Lupini, Piedmont, Italy
Regularly $19.99, Tasting Price $16.99
Intense straw yellow color, fragrance has a hint of yellow fruits pulp like peach and pear, flowers of acacia and tropical fruits. Soft persisting attack in palate and a mineral aftertaste which comes from the sandy soil of Roero. Perfect for fresh shellfish.

2017 Clos Fornelli Rosé, Corsica, France
Regularly $15.99, Tasting Price $13.59
Elegant, round, fruity, with a beautiful aromatic complexity in any spices. A beautiful expression of Corsica. This is a great roast chicken wine.

2015 Angelo Negro ‘Prachioso’ Roero, Piedmont, Italy
Regularly $29.99, Tasting Price $25.49
Intense ruby red color. Fine and elegant nose with hints of rose, notes of raspberry, strawberry and spices. Taste is warm and enveloping, with delicate tannin. Aftertaste is very broad, reminiscent of red fruits, berries, pleasant notes of vanilla and roasted meat. Try this wine with a roasted duck.

2015 Domaine Costes Gallines Bandol Rouge, Provence, France
Regularly $29.99, Tasting Price $25.49
Sappy aromas of crystallized raspberry, strawberry, cassis and Cuban cigar tobacco. Thick, sweet and generous; enticing, glyceral fruit is leavened by ripe acids. Complicating note of leather. Rather like super-ripe claret. Finishes very long and ripely tannic. This an ideal pairing with lamb.

2015 Owen Roe Abbot’s Table, Columbia Valley, Washington
Regularly $24.99, Tasting Price $20.99
The deep ruby-hue of this well known red blend is full of beautiful aromatics. Notes of dark cherry, plum, blackberry and spice become complex on the palate with hints of rich vanilla essence, tobacco, toasted nuts and pepper. Gripping tannins and a robust mouthfeel are nicely balanced with lingering acidity. This is a great red for rich roasted meats.

 

Father’s Day Tasting with Dave Saul
Saturday, June 16th, 3 to 7pm

Featured Wines

2016 Domaine de La Bonneliere Saumur Blanc, Loire Valley, France
Regularly $15.99, Tasting Price $13.59
An elegant golden color. Powerful, this wine develops a great aromatic complexity of white and candied fruits. This complexity extends into a fleshy palate, spicy and harmonious. The acidity in this wine make it perfect with lobster and drawn butter.

2017 Domaine Francois Chidaine Touraine Rouge, Loire Valley, France
Regularly $14.99, Tasting Price $12.74
Touraine Rouge, which is composed of a blend of Côt, Cabernet Franc and Pineau d’Aunis is outstanding and a terrific value. The bouquet is deep and classy, offering up a fine blend of black cherries, tree bark, plenty of smokiness, espresso, peppercorn and a fine base of soil tones that will turn autumnal in character with a bit of bottle age. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and nicely plump at the core, with modest tannins, fine balance and a very long, complex and palate-staining finish. This is an amazing wine for roasted game.

2015 Round Pond Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California
Regularly $59.99, Tasting Price $50.99
Round Pond’s 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is attractive, even if it is at times a bit monolithic. The dark cherry, plum, smoke, menthol and tobacco flavors speak with baritone intensity. Powerful and resonant in the glass, the 2015 has more than enough depth and persistence to drink well for a number of years. This wine is meant for a nice thick cut of meat.

2017 Pederzana Lambrusco, Emiglia-Romagna, Italy
Regularly $15.99, Tasting Price $13.59
Deep ruby with a hint of garnet at the rim. Sweet, spicy, fruity nose projects a root beer/cream soda quality. Quinine, smoky plum and red cherry jam flavors are enlivened by high acidity and a hint of cinnamon. Something for Dad to drink while grilling sausages ribs or burgers.
