Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, Sep 21

Your Host will be Paul Nerz of Vineyard Brands.

Beaucastel Coudoulet Cotes du Rhone 2010          $26.99
(roughly one-third each mourvedre and grenache, with the balance from the other permitted varieties): Vivid ruby. High-pitched aromas of red fruits, rose, lavender and Asian spices. Juicy and focused on entry, then deeper and broader across the mid-palate, displaying intense black raspberry and cherry compote flavors. Shows impressive energy on the spicy finish, which features a sexy floral quality.  Stephen Tanzer, 90-92 pts

Mohua Sauvignon Blanc 2012                                 $12.99
Exhibits lifted aromatics of lime and citrus zest, melon and lemongrass. The palate has pure intense flavours of passion fruit and white peach, ripe lemon and fresh herbs.

La Vielle Ferme Rosé 2012                                       $12.99/1.5L
Beautiful pink and red tones mark the color. The nose is floral with hints of aniseed and brown sugar that give way to aromas of white flowers, cherries and fruit drops on the palate.  Made of Cinsault, Grenache, and Syrah using the saignée method (French for bleed off).

Siesta Malbec 2009                                                    $22.99
Red tone with violet reflections - clean and very bright. On the nose there is an explosion of cherry fruit, fresh raspberry and plum. Toasty scents and subtle hints of vanilla are indications of the wine's passage through small oak barrique. The entry in the mouth is juicy, filling up the sense of taste with fruits, honey, and a touch of caramel.
