Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, March 22

Your host is Jennifer Englert of T. Edwards.

La Forets des Dames 2012                                   $16.99
This Sancerre shows the classic profile of a Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc.  It is crisp and zesty with mineral and citrus notes running all through it.  The finish is round and long-lasting. 

Cinquante-Cing Viognier 2012                 $13.99
Viognier is a great grape for Chardonnay lovers to try as a new alternative.  This one has that touch of white peaches and orange zest that is so characteristic.  On the palate it is full bodied and slightly viscous giving it a rich mouth feel.

Norton Ridge Sonoma Carneros Pinot Noir 2012      $17.99
Gorgeous, lush cherry fruit with the perfect balance of spice and acidity make this wine a classic rendition of Russian River Pinot Noir.  A dash of sweet oak spice adds complexity to this finely made wine.

Alcyone Tannat Dessert Wine N.V.                                     $27.99
This is one of the few wines in the world that actually does have other ingredients added to it such as different roots and herbs.  The potpourri of aromas and flavors that result must be tasted to understand and enjoy . . . words alone do not give it justice!  Look for wild apple mint, winter flowers, vanilla bean, and white cacao soufflé.
