Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, Oct 25

Your host is Michael Kane of Rosenthal Wine Merchant.

Cheveau Macon Fuisse 2012   $21.99
Pear and white peach aromas lead to refreshing flavors of orchard fruit and citrus notes. This mid-weight wine has a refreshing palate presence with a lovely tension on the finish.

La Manarine 
Cotes du Rhone Red 2012        $14.99
This wine is 100% Grenache and produces a classically spicy, full-bodied wine that speaks clearly of the 'garrigue' of the region. The grapes are destemmed before the fermentation and the cuvaison is on the order of three weeks duration. The wine is bottled without filtration after twenty to twenty-four months of 'elevage'.  Winemaker’s Notes

Geoffroy Gevrey Chambertin “En Jouise” 2009        $49.99
This wine has great concentration and complexity. The nose is very expressive of plum and black fruit with a clear minerality on the palate.  There is great freshness and juiciness of fruit with a soft-texture and great persistence of flavor on the finish.

Becheras St. Joseph 2010                                   $29.99
This has a gorgeous sweet plum aroma on the nose, and beautiful acidity on the mid-palate. The tannins are there but they exist in the background and this makes the wine, like most Saint Josephs, very versatile with food.  It has a lot of complexity and interest.
