Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, June 28

Your host is Len Gulino, The Wine Tutor. 
Ok lets get them all out of the way...
No, Len is not part of a Barbershop Quartet...
He is also not scooping icecream today or impersonating the flag as someone suggested!
Len is manning the tasting table today and showing off his patriotism on this Independence day weekend. Good wines in the lineup so stop by and let him guide you through the selection.

Anne Pichon Gris Montagne Rosé 2013            $24.99  1.5 Liter bottle
30% Syrah, 25% Cinsault, 20% Old Carignane, 25% Grenache Noir.  The nose brims with fresh notes of raspberry and cherry, and the palate has bright fruit notes.  A light mineral note emerges on the crisp, clean finish.

Cascina Radice Gavi 2013                                  $12.99
This wine sparkles green with a straw yellow color.  The nose is delicate with essence of fresh fruit, and it has a clean, dry mouth feel with herbal flavors and a smooth texture.

Louis Chevallier Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2012   $15.99
Hand harvested and aged in French oak barrels for six months, this Bourgogne Rouge has aromas of sweet plum, cinnamon and berries.  It shows exceptional smoothness, a muted woody fragrance and a silky mouth feel with flavors of red fruit and spice.

La Manarine Cotes du Rhone Blanc 2013                $16.99
A brisk, energetic white wine with a whisper of nutmeg to the nose, crisp sleek white peach fruit, and underlying stone to the palate.  A glimmer of cool green tarragon lingering on the finish, this is fresh as a daisy.  It is a classic Provencal white wine blend of 50% Clairette and 50% Bourboulenc - two of the most ancient white grape varieties traditional to the South of France.
