Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, Nov 1

Your host is Doug  Rankin of 
Missing Link Wine Company.

Lo Brujo Garnacha 2012       $9.99
This has an expressive bouquet of brambly blackberry, black cherry, red currant, and a healthy dose of spice, in particular black pepper. In the mouth it is full of concentrated berry flavors, lovely spiciness, and a strong yet well-balanced underline of minerality. Made from Garnacha grapes selected from bush vines averaging 50 years in age.  Importer’s Notes

Peterson Primary Zinfandel 2012                       $20.99
In your face aromas of rich brambly berries laced with gourmet freshly ground black pepper seduce you to sip.  The smooth, luscious mouth feel and spicy, bright
texture showcase perfectly ripened blackberry and raspberry, with subtle pepper adding interest mid-palate and intensifying into the finish. Winemaker’s Notes

Muller-Grossman Gruner Veltliner 2013                     $19.99
This electric wine is made by the demanding and artistic Helma Muller-Grossman, one of the leading women in Austrian winemaking. The grapes from the Grosser
Satz vineyard are harvested and sorted painstakingly by hand before fermentation in stainless steel. The resulting wine is light green-yellow color, fruity, like
yellow fruits. It has a mineral and juicy taste with a lively acidity, fresh and animating.

Tenuta La Pergola Monferrato Rosso 2012      $14.99
Intense ruby red in colour with garnet highlights. Rich, spicy and pungent on the nose with slightly fruity, woody, notes of fruit, vanilla and green pepper. Fullbodied with elegant structure and a good finish. Barbera 50%, Bonarda 25%, Freisa 15%, Dolcetto 10%
