Friday Wine Tasting 6.30.17

Toast June good-bye with our free wine tasting from 3-7 pm. Here’s what we’ll be pouring!

This pure example of Provence rosé is a delicate pink color with bright red fruit aromas. The palate is clean and refreshing with tart berry flavors and hints of floral and mineral notes. The finish is light and refreshing with ample acidity.

A powerhouse Napa winery, Hall may be best known for its Cabernet. But don’t discount its Sauvignon Blanc. A gorgeous yellow-green, this wine looks like bottled summer morning sunshine. A bold nose offers lemon zest, green melon and alluring hints of jasmine. The palate continues the tropical fruit profile, adding a sharp edged acidity that is balanced by a creamy softness from time spent on lees. Open this to enjoy with anything from salads to seafood or simply for a chat with a good friend.

This wine is an excellent representation of a classic Sonoma Pinot Noir. The nose is rich and intense with notes of black cherry, elderberry and dried rose petals. The palate is lush and juicy with flavors of cherry cola and dark earth undertones. French oak aging adds underlying hints of vanilla and toffee. Delicious and quaffable!

Lodi may be a Central Coast area best known for its Zinfandel, but talented wine makers are now putting out concentrated, balanced examples of Cabernet Sauvignon. After spending over a year in French oak, this wine offers a bold nose of cherry pie and chai tea. The palate is full and lush with layers of complex flavors like cherry, black currant and leather.
