Zin-full Picks for Your Next Trip

Like your trips a little spicy? Tonight we dole out two whites and two Zin-full reds that will pair well with nights after long drives to the cabin, afternoons after hitting the moguls, and weekends after the kids exhausted you to the max. Charlie will pour from 5-7pm tonight; be there or be wine-less. Stop by and join the party before hitting the slopes!

ee67588b-9735-45c5-852c-d60f8989631dObviously we weren’t the only people wanting really good, estate-bottled olive oils and sherry vinegars. We have sold out several times. We apologize, we are trying to figure out the movement. Honestly, these products are our passion.

If you’re looking for a full- flavored oil with hints of fresh tomato and radish in the nose Alberto Romano is the bottle for you. All Ortice olives grown in the mountains of Campania, Italy; this farm dates back over 150 years. Alberto’s farm is located outside the city of Benevento at the base of Mount Taburno.
The Ortice olive is the varietal that the early Romans regarded as the finest olive for oil. The Ortice is known for it’s expressive aromatics, and a full, strong flavor. This oil has flavors of black pepper, mint and basil. It would be ideal with grilled seafood, artichokes, poultry, vegetable au gratin and mozzarella cheese.

The 2015 Romano has garnered the Flos Olei Gold Medal Award and received a score of 96 out of 100. We currently have a bottle in the back for everyone’s lunches. It makes is feel like we’re back in Italy!


Ruffino Pinot Grigio- Reg. $12.49 SALE $10.49
First up this week we have the Ruffino Pinot Grigio. A store favorite, this bottle is proof you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get good wine. It has a great nose full of fresh light fruit notes, a hint of sage and mint, and the typical minerality Pinot Grigio often exhibits.  Medium-bodied, it still maintains its lively nose while still having structure. Lemon peel on the palate gives into a lingering finish with a touch of minerality. This wine is currently on E-deal so come give it a try and enjoy the extra savings!
Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc- Reg. $18.99 SALE $15.99
Up next we have the Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc which has been a long time store favorite. A classic example of a New Zealand Sauv Blanc, it pours light in the glass with unmistakable notes of grapefruit and grass. On the palate the wine is bursting with juicy acidity and fruit sweetness, providing a balanced flavor profile. The finish is fresh, zesty, and lingering. All these factors have resulted in the plethora of fruit flavors, crisp acidity, and complexity of this stunning wine. Come give it a try tonight!
Gnarly Head Lodi Zinfandel- Reg. $10.99 SALE $8.99 

Third up for the evening we have the Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel. This wine is made using grapes sourced from “gnarled” 35-80 year old head trained vines. As some of the oldest vines in California, the fruit produced is exceptional, intense and full-flavored. This Old Vine Zinfandel has a “gnarly” core of rich, jammy blackberries and mocha flavors with layers of spice and vanilla balanced by complex French and American oak toast. Another long time store favorite, we’ve got this one set up in our “We have Zinned” display and there is no better time to try it!.
Bradford Mountain Zinfandel- Reg. $17.99 SALE $14.99
Last up for the evening we have the Bradford Mountain Zinfandel from the Dry Creek Valley. Everything we love about Zinfandel comes to the forefront in this wine… Black raspberry and spice leap from the glass, and on the palate, the concentration and richness of that raspberry fruit is stunning. Add layers of blackberry, currant, and eastern spice and all of a sudden, you need to have a second glass of this wine. This is an exceptionally powerful wine, yet so well-balanced that the final impression is elegance with a long and beautiful finish.
