Hello September! It’s about time for a bit of a cool off and it’s beyond time for some football! As we gear up for cooler weather and opening day kickoffs we are slowing bidding farewell to our summer whites and rosés and welcoming in new tasty reds and full-bodied whites. September’s new additions make the changing of the leaves, touchdowns, and the start of fall seem so glorious that you’ll forget all about summer. Stop by tonight from 5-7 for our FREE in-store tasting and sample the new Chardonnay focus, a beautiful Sauvignon Blanc, and two killer reds from the Winery focus. We are starting September with a bang! Can’t wait to see you tonight.
Charles Krug 2014 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc- Reg. $16.99 SALE $11.99
Delightful aromas of white peach and honeydew melon commingle with citrus and white grapefruit flavors that burst forth in this refreshing, crisp and balanced wine. To achieve the crisp minerality and bright acidity, this wine is harvested at night for optimal fruit freshness ensuring the Krug signature Sauvignon Blanc style. Awesome with fruit and veggie platters, shrimp and seafood, and football.
Light golden straw in color. Bright fruit aromas of pear, melon and peach are accompanied by a bouquet of vanilla, hazelnut, and a hint of buttered popcorn. The wine is rich, creamy and full of sweet pear, banana and toasty oak flavors. Bold enough to go with a huge assortment of meals yet light enough to enjoy while the weather is still warm.
The color of this wine is truly Immortal. Its rich dark color goes on and on and on. The deceptively subtle aromas of this wine combine red currant, raspberries, red cherries, with earthy cedar marrying together to put your olfactory senses into a new dimension. In the mouth, the palate is wrapped in a mysterious, velvety layered mix of raspberry cordial, sweet mouth filling red fruit, blackberry and red currant, leading to a lengthy rich mouth-filling, almost breathless finish.
Peirano Estates Vineyards “The Unknown” Red Blend- Reg. $14.79 SALE $9.99
As you begin your journey into “The Unknown”, delight in the aromas of ripe blackberries, plums, black licorice & spice. As you journey further, to that first sip, savor the lush, well rounded, full mouth-filling flavors of plums, currants, figs and black raspberries. At last it all comes together. Find the completeness of your journey’s end with the haunting, lingering finishing characteristics of roasted coffee, black & red berries dipped in chocolate and blackberry pie. Now that you’ve read that, I’ll admit its kind of a corny name, but it actually fits. The grapes that went into this blend are very distinct and different from most blends. The “unknown” name comes from the fact that when tasted blind by wine reviewers and professionals, it was nearly impossible to pick out everything that went into this wine. Take a guess on the blend of grapes when you taste it, Charlie will have the answer for you!
