Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, May 3

Your host is Joanne Davis of Winebow.

Things are really jumping at the store today! Plenty of people stopping by to taste wines, stock up for tomorrow and/or just to be out in the beautiful weather. A few moms are at the table and tasting with Joanne. We are carrying on our long held tradition of passing out roses to all of the moms that come by today. These ladies don't know it yet but as soon as the camera is put down they will be handed a Rose. The flowers always seem to bring a smile to face of each recipient and it gets their once a year weekend started right. Happy Mother's Day!

Fontsainte Gris de Gris Corbieres Rose 2013      $14.99
Aromatics of raspberry, cherry and freshly picked strawberries - followed by exotic aromas such as pineapple and mango.  the palate density and richness of the fruit mingle with the superb acid vitality giving the wine a magnificent persistence.  Winemaker’s Notes

Wolffer Estate Rose 2013                                    $16.99
Bright shiny light copper in color. Vibrant aromas of crisp apples, kiwi, cantaloupe and fresh mint fill the glass. The mouth-feel is refreshing, with mouthwatering fruit and playful acidity. The wine has a long, vibrant and dry finish with great minerality.  Winemaker’s Notes

Deloach Russian River Zinfandel 2007              $9.99
Soft and jammy, with appealing black cherry and toasty pepper aromas and lively, zesty raspberry and smoky licorice flavors that nicely linger.  Wine Spectator, 89 pts

Catena Cabernet Sauvignon 2011                     $19.99
Bright ruby-red. Expressive nose melds kirsch, black raspberry, licorice, violet and graphite. Quite graceful on the palate, at once liqueur-like and energetic, with flavors of currant, cedar and graphite spreading out to saturate the palate. Finishes sweet, juicy and long, with a hint of dried herbs contributing lift.  International Winer Cellar, 90 pts
