April Showers Bring 2 Wine Tasting Hours

Goodbye weeks of perfect weather, hello April showers. Speaking of liquid, please join us for our celebrated FREE in-store wine tasting from 5-7pm tonight. Charlie will pour four wines that pair exceptionally well with turning frowns upside-down. We are also excited for our new expansion of 1.5L wine, and we’re not talking about the Carlo Rossi’s from your college days. We have scoured the wholesalers for double-bottles that will make any occasion double the fun! If ginormous bottles of wine aren’t your thing (which they should be), check out all the new rosé’s in our Rockin’ Rosé display!

Rabble Rosé- Reg. $14.99 SALE $12.99
Up first this week we have the Rabble Rosé, a new favorite in our store! Made from 100% Syrah grapes from Paso Robles, California, this pale rosé is an absolute delight. This beautiful wine electrifies the senses with bright acidity and notes of of strawberry pie, kiwi, floral, and passionfruit flavors in the nose and mirrored on the palate. It finishes as a dry rosé should and leaves the palate with deep smooth layers of fruit, minerality with a lasting impression of just how great rosé season is. Don’t miss giving this bottle a try, it’s just too wonderful to miss out on.
Napa Cellars Chardonnay- Reg. $18.99 SALE $9.99
Up next we have the Napa Cellars Chardonnay, this month’s featured Chardonnay! The Napa Cellars Chardonnay exhibits the classic Napa Valley Chardonnay characteristics unique to this region. Aromas of fresh floral notes, toasted apple strudel, tangerine rind, and pear blossom excite the senses. The palate consists of crème fraîche and baked shortbread, which create a soft, round mouthfeel with an extended finish of toffee and crème brûlée. The balanced acidity gives this Chardonnay its approachable character. On sale for the rest of the month, don’t miss this chance to try it before you stash a case for the upcoming summer!
Saint George Agiorgitiko – Reg. $16.99 SALE $13.99 

Third up for the night we have the Saint George Agiorgitiko from Nemea, Greece. While its not every day you try Greek wine, this one might have you seeking them out! The color is bright, deep crimson and looks beautiful in the glass. The nose reveals aromas of blackberries, black raspberries and ripe strawberries with just a touch of anise and spices such as clove and cinnamon. It is a medium bodied wine with graceful texture, balanced acidity and very ripe elegant tannins. The finish is moderately long, full of red fruits with a touch of sweet vanilla and black pepper. Another new favorite in our store, don’t miss your chance to try this great wine.
Yalumba Patchwork Shiraz- Reg. $19.99 SALE $15.99
Last, but certainly not least, we have the Yalumba Patchwork Shiraz from the Barossa, Australia. A long time favorite, we thought it was time to share this one with everyone once again. This beautiful wine starts with creamy red currant, earthy aromas and smoky tannins on the nose. A medium-bodied palate with good fruitiness, attractive tannins, and good length round out the wine and give it surprising complexity for a wine in this price range. We may have said it before but this is another wine we wouldn’t want you to miss!
