Wine Tasting - Saturday May 14th 2016

Weekly Wine Tasting
Saturday, May 14th
with Christopher Lawther of
Hartley & Parker

Whispering Angel Rose 2015 $21.99
An irresistible pink! Charming, refreshing, refined, and with plenty of juicy, enticing, strawberry and berry fruit. This is a rosé that should be in everyone’s cellars, without exception. Drinkable is an understatement and you’ll keep on coming back for seconds!

Broglia Gavi Di Gavi 2014 $19.99
Intense, clean and fruity. Ripe golden plums and green apples are edged with flinty, salty tones. Lively acidity further extends fairly rich palate. Easy to drink and a good food wine to boot.

Mural Douro Red 2013 $12.99

Made from a blend of grapes, this reserva is a serious and structured wine that will need some aging. The tannins are solid, firm and show nice concentration on the palate. At the moment, the ripe fruit that is there is buried under this tannic edifice. This fine wine needs time—enjoy from 2018.

Condado De Haza Ribera Del Duero 2012 $24.99
"This rich red shows a deep core of plum, bramble and mineral, with notes of loam and game that impart a savory character. Solid tannins support a thick texture, while balsamic acidity keeps this balanced. Austere but harmonious. Drink now through 2024." 93pts Wine Spectator
