Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, May 24

Your host will be Michael Tobin of Worldwide Wines.

Miraval Rose 2013                                              $23.99
As the French would say 'il y a du vin' – meaning that there is a sense of power alongside the elegance, a structure and a fresh acidity that gives the wine persistency, with a grip of minerality that gives a delicious mouthwatering finish.  Decanter Magazine, 91 pts

Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc/Viognier 2013           $12.99
Opens with fresh lemon, juicy honeydew melon, pomelo and sweet mango, complemented by soft orange blossom and carnation floral notes. The palate is crisp and mouth-watering, with yellow pear and ruby grapefruit flavors that are balanced by hints of sweet tangerine and white tea.  Winemaker’s Notes

Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico 2010                $12.99
This is vibrant and energetic, with a base of fine-grained tannins lifting the cherry, currant, rhubarb and tobacco flavors. Taut and almost racy on the long finish.  Wine Spectator, 92 pts

Ancient Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2011                   $16.99
This wine opens with generous aromas of black fruit, toasty oak, caramel and cedar. The palate is elegantly layered with flavors of plum, cherry and blackberry, followed by trailing notes of black olive and cocoa. Fine tannins linger on a juicy, structured finish.
