Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, Sep 27

Your host is Anna-Lisa Stockwell of Opici Imports.

Auspicion Cabernet 2012            $9.99
A classic Cabernet in structure and flavor, Auspicion Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with juicy black fruit and ripe berries, balanced by silky tannins.  The lingering finish is accented by touches of chocolate, toffee, and vanilla.  Full in body, this is a complex wine that is ready to drink upon release, yet will continue to develop in bottle for up to 5 years.  Winemaker’s Notes

Auspicion Chardonnay 2012           $9.99
This wine shows great fruit character, finesse, and fullness in the palate. Flavors of ripe pineapple, golden apple, and Anjou pear are balanced by citrus notes and a smooth, creamy finish.  A crisp, light-bodied wine meant to be enjoyed on its own or with lighter fare. Winemaker’s Notes.

Vivanco Crianza Rioja 2009           $14.99
Vivanco Rioja Crianza is bursting with red berries. Mild hints of smoke, toasted vanilla, and spice balance the fruit. A well-structured, meaty wine with mature tannins, this is elegant through the long finish. Vinified in French oak vats and aged for 16 months in previously-used French and American oak barrels, this wine will continue to evolve over the next several years.

Delaforce Touriga Nacional 2011             $19.99
A dense, well-structured red, with powerful flavors of iron, dark plum and dried berry that feature plenty of smoke and spice, followed dark chocolate on the finish. Drink now through 2018. Wine Spectator, 91pts
