Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, Sep 13

Your host is Elena Shulman of New England Wine and Spirits.

Michael David Freakshow 2012  $19.99 
This wine is FREAKing amazing! Over each vintage, the intensity has been kicked up exponentially. This 4th incarnation has more of everything…more depth, more ripe fruit, more pizazz! Nicely balanced with fruit (pomegranate) and oak (showing some smoke). Warning—it’s gulpable!

Wente Morning Fog Chardonnay 2012   $13.99 
This has aromas and flavors of green apple and tropical fruits, balanced by subtle oak, cinnamon and vanilla from barrel aging. With a mouth-filling body and balanced acidity, this wine delivers a medium-long, refreshing finish.

Michael David 7 deadly Zins                            $16.99 
Fuller and richer with more texture and deeper fruit, it reveals hints of tapenade, new saddle leather, black cherries and black currants. It off ers a lot of fl avor for its price.

Riondo Pink Prosecco N.V.                      $9.99 
Frothy bubbles, delicate red berries and fresh herbs on the nose; crisp, prickly and fresh on the palate. There may be a distant hint of fresh-fruit sweetness, but with the tart acidity and a pleasant, very slight bitter note in the finish, it comes across as dry.
