Friday, Aug 7 Wine Tasting

21+ Summer vacation is winding down. The city is beginning to buzz and the CU students are filing back into town with dreams of snow falling on the mountains, fresh tracks, and first turns. But hold on now, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, there is still a good deal of time to enjoy the hiking trails, swimming pools, and for some of us, the golf courses before Boulder’s population once again hits the ceiling. With that notion in mind we picked some fantastic and limited wine to crack open for tonight’s FREE in-store tasting. These wines are special orders, allocated products, and overall relatively rare to our store. Stop by tonight from 5-7 and enjoy some delicious wine that won’t be around long enough to get snatched up by this year’s newest crop of Boulderites. See you tonight! 21+

Lucy 2014 Rose Santa Lucia Highlands- Reg. $21.99 SALE $19.99

Lucy is a bright and fresh Rosé of Pinot Noir crafted by the Pisoni Family from their vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands. It is a great wine with a great purpose. The Pisoni Family has always been committed to making exceptional wines, and Lucy allows them to combine this passion with philanthropy. The Pisoni family donates one dollar of each bottle sold to Breast Cancer Research. In addition, countless cases of Lucy wine are donated to support many charity organizations and events around the country. Since inception, over $80,000 has been raised. Won’t last long!

Hedges CMS 2014 Sauvignon Blanc- Reg. $12.99 SALE $10.99

Beautifully structured with wonderful Sauvignon Blanc fruit character, the mouth feel has a delicate balance of acid angularity and defined herbal sophistication. Very cool wine that is new to us. Not your regular Sauv. Blanc, this Washington wine is actually a bit of a blend adding 10% Cardonnay and 4% Marsanne for a more round and complex finish on the palate.
Château Moulin de Mallet 2012 Bordeaux- Reg. $11.99 SALE $9.99

Back in our French display by popular demand, but our wholesale never knows how long this wine will be in stock at this price! Great color for such a modest wine. Very dense and meaty on the attack with lots of fruit and a juicy feel ahead. Light, yet grippe and giddy on the finish letting you know this wine is not just tasty, but it means business.

Tooth and Nail “The Possessor” 2012- Reg. $28.99 SALE $23.99

Okay this wine may not be something we have a hard time keeping on the shelf, but we do have a hard time keeping it at this awesome price. If you weren’t able to grab a bottle of The Prisoner this year, you need to pick up The Possessor! Every bit as good but with a better price tag. Displaying a nose of red currant, dusty black cherries and subtle earth. Lush tannins on the palate with bright red plum preserves, juicy acidity and a soft suede mouth feel resolves with slight herbaceous menthol and white pepper.
