Rosé, Chardonnay, + Sunrays

“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.”
Ernest Hemingway

Bonny Doon Rosé- Reg. $18.99 SALE $13.99
 
First up for the evening we have the Bonny Doon Rosé, or as it’s better known around South Boulder: the “Alien Rosé.” Nothing screams warm weather as much as this beautiful wine. Grenache and Mourvèdre dominate the blend at 62% and 17% respectively, with 9 percent Roussanne and 6 percent each of Grenache Blanc and Cinsault. Its aromas and flavors suggest berries, melon, and blossom. The wine is dry and fairly full-bodied, with rich, oily-like texture that contrasts with a backbone of crisp acidity. The clean, long finish adds mineral notes to the flavor mix. A true store favorite, if you haven’t tried it, now is the time!
Chateau Souverain Chardonnay- Reg. $16.99 SALE $9.99
Up next we have the Chardonnay from Chateau Souverain, our currently featured Chardonnay. Chateau Souverain Chardonnay is another wine that is hard not to love, especially at this price! Starting off the wine has inviting aromas of lemon citrus, roasted pear and light notes of spice before leading into elegant layers of pineapple and toasted oak. Full-bodied on the palate without being overwhelming, it has a balanced acidity with a lengthy and flavorful finish. A wine we are happy to be featuring, come trying this awesome bottle while we have it open!
Prodigo Nero d’Avola- Reg. $12.99 SALE $10.99 

Third up for the evening we have the Prodigo Nero d’Avola. A long time store favorite, we decided it was time to revisit this one. Prodigo means lavish, sumptuous, luxurious or grand, all perfect descriptions of this wine. The wine’s bouquet is slightly spicy, and has notes of dried figs and ripe fruits, like blackberry and boysenberry. The finish is round and velvety, with notes of vanilla. Another great red for the summer, it pairs well with just about any food or occasion. If you haven’t had this one yet come see why it’s been a store favorite!
Domaine Des Romarins Cotes Du Rhone- Reg. $14.99 SALE $11.99
Last up for the night we have the Romarins Cotes Du Rhone, yet another in a long line of store favorites. Shiny red, it’s got a big bouquet of fruits and herbs that does well with a bit of air. In the mouth it has strong, round red-fruit with subtle notes of herbal spice showing up in the aftertaste. It’s a great example of a classic Cotes Du Rhone, displaying a lot more complexity than the price tag might suggest. Another one you won’t want to miss trying (or revisiting, as it may be) come stop by to find another bottle to add to the Summer wine list!
