Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, Oct 12

Your host is Len Gulino, "The Wine Tutor". 

As we get ready to celebrate our 72nd anniversary in the upcoming week we have reached into our bag of tricks and found ol' Len to get us started as we gear up for what we are sure will be a fun week. He is showing a couple staff favorites and a couple of newer items to the store. 
Keep an eye on our blog, our Facebook page and in the Minuteman (amoung other places) for the special tastings and events that will be coming up this week including some very hard to find and great scoring wines. You are all welcome to join our celebration!

Greystack Sauvignon Blanc Rosemary’s Block 2012                  $29.99
The unique Italian clone grown in Rosemary\'s Block delivers its unique pineapple and passion fruit flavor profile with a nose that can be detected from several feet away.  2012 season was picture perfect right up to harvest. This wine was fermented in stainless steel to preserve it's verve and then aged for 4 months in 50% stainless steel and 50% mostly neutral oak.   Winemaker’s Notes

Chopin Cote de Nuits Villages Blanc les Monts de Boncourt 2011         $24.99
On the nose are aromas of spicy ripe pear and pineapple that are caressed with just a thin touch of smoke.  Flavors are rich with ripe citrus fruit extracts, along with some pleasing vanilla notes that join in at mid palate to carry on to a long and elegant finish. This has all the true characters of a stylish expensive white Burgundy at the right price.

Korta Petit Verdot 2010                            $9.99
This has an inky purple color with ripe aromas of cassis and blackberry. It is straightforward with fruity flavors of black cherry jam and a nuance of dark chocolate.  The mouth feel is bright and full with firm tannins and a juicy finish.

Chateau Paloumey Haut Medoc 2009     $24.99
With a blend that is half Cabernet Sauvignon, half Merlot, this is as rich as the year. The weight of fruit is borne by sweet tannins and layers of wood toast. There is a very dense dusty texture along with fine acidity and final blackberry fruit. It is for aging over the next 4-5 years.  Wine Enthusiast, 92 pts
