Concert + Ironman Wine

“Since you poured the wine for me and tightened up my shoes
I’d hate to leave you sittin’ there composing lonesome blues”- Grateful Dead

We have a big, blockbuster weekend ahead of us with the Ironman in town and Dead & Company playing at Folsom. We’ve been training our palettes the past few decades for moments just like these. We’ll pour the wine if you tighten (or at least wear) your shoes. Party on!

Join us tonight for our wine tasting, FREE every Friday, 5-7pm. 21+

Ferrari Carano Fumé Blanc- Reg. $14.99 SALE $12.99
First up this week we have the Ferrari Carano Fumé Blanc. This Fumé Blanc is a delicious wine with aromas and flavors of yellow peach, pear, quince, Meyer lemon, mango and fruit cocktail. This wine has bright acidity and crisp freshness from the cool, stainless steel tank fermentation, while the subtle oak character from barrel aging adds body, complexity and depth. A long-time favorite around Pettyjohn’s, when we heard we could get a sale this good we figured everyone should try it! Don’t miss your chance while we have it open!
Le Paradou Rosé- Reg. $13.99 SALE $9.99
Up next we have the (Le) Paradou Cinsault Rosé. Beautiful pale pink in the glass with brighter reflections, this wine is a wonder from the moment you pour it. The nose is full of red berries and a hint of minerality on the back end. The mouth is very balanced and very elegant, with tart notes, citrus, raspberries and red currant, and a great freshness. We’ve said it before, even in this very email, but here is yet another wine that you won’t want to miss. Thankfully the weather is more than warm enough that it’s easy to justify having a bottle of rosé… or two, we won’t tell!
Poggio Vignoso Chianti- Reg. $13.99 SALE $10.99 

Third up for the evening we have another store favorite, The Poggio Vignoso Chianti. An excellent wine at this price point, and organic to boot, this is a perfect wine to enjoy all summer. An exceptionally food-friendly wine that can be enjoyed with virtually anything it’s a perfect wine to stock up on.  On the palate this chianti is surprisingly firm, and admirably balanced with intense dried cherries and floral notes. On the finish the wine is dry but not aggressive and lingers just enough to accent anything paired with it. With such consistent quality, and again, it’s organic, it is no surprise that this is one of our best sellers!
Yalumba Patchwork Shiraz- Reg. $19.99 SALE $15.99
Last, but certainly not the least, we have another long time store favorite, the Yalumba Patchwork Shiraz from Barossa, Australia. We thought it was time to share this one with everyone once again since it’s another great red for the Summer! 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!
