Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, Sep 13

Your host is Emily Welch of 55 Degrees Distribution.

Ranga Ranga 
Sauvignon Blanc  2013      $13.99
Estate grown and 'Old School'. The crisp acidity carries a solid core of lemon grass, lime zest, the tang of cut lawn plus a hint of dried herbs and a touch of Awatere minerality. And it packs a fresh, zingy punch on the finish that makes it stand out from the crowd.

Louis Chevallier 
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.

Jeff Rundquist 1448  2012                       $16.99
Has deep thick color that one would expect form a wine that is predominately Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot .  The aromas feature smoky currants and concentrated black fruits .  Mocha, caramel , and milk chocolate provide a sweet inviting bouquet.  The flavors are big, rich and creamy. Dense ripe black fruits
flow across a deeply toasted oak  background . The time in small barrels contributes to the rich body and luscious mouth -feel.

Gonnet Chignin Savoie 2013                    $17.99
Very pure, showing a melon rind edge to the green almond and light pear notes, with a refreshing finish of the Jaquere grape.
