Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, Dec 6

Your Host is Deidre Magnello of DM Selections.

Blanco Nieva Verdejo 2013         $14.99

Pale yellow color. Strong bouquet of citrus, green apple, and passion fruit.  Round and zesty mouthfeel with citrus, grapefruit, and green herb flavors. Smooth and elegant on the palate with intense lemon / lime and pear skin flavors.  Importer’s Notes

Lafond Canon Fronsac 2010     $19.99

This displays vivid herby, merlot-based cherryish fruit nicely rounded by its short stay in French oak casks.  It shows polished cedary spicy oak, with a plush underlying core of fine black cherry and cassis-like fruitiness.  UK Retailer

La Rayne Cahors (Malbec) 2011    $16.99

This shows nuances of deep plum damp earth, black currant, smoke and licorice notes on both the nose and palate.  It has good acid and a nice level of tannins along with medium body and a long finish.

Lou Dumont Morey St Denis 2010 $54.99

Aged over 18 months in 40 percent new oak and bottled unfiltered. Dense and concentrated fruit, with animal and earthy notes. Outstanding vintage for this wine, premier cru quality! Just 200 cases produced.  Importer’s Notes
