Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, August 23

Your host is Oliver MacKinnon of Highland Imports.  

Fernhook Estate 
Sauvignon Blanc 2013                     $14.99
Fruit-intense and lively, this attractive sauvignon is filled with ripe peach, feijoa and citrus flavours with subtle herbaceous notes. It’s juicy and rounded on the palate, leading to a refreshing finish.  Winemaker’s Notes

Nero Veneto 2011                                    $11.99
The ruby red garnet color leads to herbaceous and floral notes on the nose.  The palate is dry and medium bodied.  It is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Refosco, and Malbec.

Chateau Tuilerie Entre-Deux-Mers 2013                    $14.99
This has a lemon-lime and white peach aroma profile.  On the palate are lemon and honeysuckle notes with nice minerality and grassiness.  Good acidity leads to a clean, floral finish.

Pico & Vine Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011     $19.99
This Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine of structure and finesse, with blackberry and cassis fruit aromas and flavors, backed by subtle notes of chocolate and anise.  Its suppleness lends it to drinking now, but it will age gracefully over the upcoming decade.  Winemaker’s Notes
