Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, Jan 25

Your host is Billy Sanchez of Harry's Staff.
Billy is a recent transplant from Northridge California which was the perfect backdrop for him to develop and expand his love of wine and beer, especially his two favorites -- Cabernet Sauvignon and IPA’s.  His passion for wine comes from his appreciation of the harmony between nature and man to create something enjoyable.  He is currently a full time student at Sacred Heart University where he is working on a degree in English.  Before this he served our country with 14 years in the Marine Corps.  This military tour of duty afforded him the ability to travel the world, and he was lucky enough to visit over 20 countries and to learn so much about the people, food, spirits, and cultures of the world.

St. Michael Eppan Pinot Grigio 2012                $14.99
Light green luster run through the straw color of this wine whose aroma is rich in fruits, the most striking of which are pears. An excellent acidity balance gives this wine strength and structure. It is dry and smooth on the palate, and leaves a long, pleasant aftertaste.

Lamadrid Malbec Reserva 2010                        $19.99
Bright ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, licorice and floral oils are complicated by a peppery note and a hint of maple syrup. Dense, round and lightly saline, with a suave, silky Old World texture to its flavors of blackberry and fig. Most impressive today on the long, rising finish, which features big but lush tannins and an impression of seamlessness. A lot of wine for the price.  International Wine Cellar, 91 pts
