      Wines for Spring - Wine Tasting

      Join Margaret & Maxwell as they sample six wines that are great for Spring. $5/person tasting fee is refunded with purchase.

      2016 Kracher Pinot Gris – From Burgenland, Austria, this Pinot Gris is no shrinking violet! Rated 91 points from Wine Enthusiast, this wine displays fresh apple fruit, honey, melon and a hint of wild herbs on the nose. On the palate it is racy and juicy with an elegant texture, with plenty of zesty citrus and minerality on the finish.

      2016 Copain Tous Ensemble Chardonnay – From the Sonoma Coast of California, this wine exhibits a complex nose of floral aromatics of honeysuckle, jasmine, white blossom, pineapple, mint; Meyer lemon, verbena, and tangerine. On the palate it is lively, with a supple texture in the mouth, and finishes with fuji apple and Asian pear flavors. Fermented in oak barrels, it is aged on the lees for 8 months and then in stainless steel for 2 months prior to bottling.

      2018 Rodney Strong Rosé of Pinot Noir – From the estate of Rodney Strong in Sonoma County comes this delightful rosé perfect for spring! Made from Russian River fruit, it exhibits aromas and flavors of strawberry, melon and tropical fruits. Brilliant and bright with fresh acidity, notes of citrus and a clean finish.

      2016 Landmark Vineyards Pinot Noir – Rated 91 points from Wine Enthusiast with fruit sourced from 72% Monterey County, 15% Santa Barbara County and 13% Sonoma County, this wine exhibits aromas of red cherry, clove, vanilla and star anise. The palate combines baking spices with baked cherry, all framed by zesty acidity and a warm spicy finish.

      2016 Tabali Pedregoso Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva – This wine comes from the best vineyards of the Maipo Valley in Chile, situated at the foothills of the Andes Mountains. It exhibits classic ripe fruit flavors, combined with blackberries, prunes and black pepper. Time in French oak barrels adds vanilla and toasty notes which give the wine a smooth roundness and overall elegance. This 100% cabernet is a knockout and a steal at $13.99!

      2016 Hess Lion Tamer Napa Valley Red Blend – A blend of Malbec, Zinfandel, Petit Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvedre, Petit Verdot and Merlot, “Lion Tamer” is their nickname for Malbec, so used to tame the powerful tannins of the Cabernet and Petit Sirah to create a lush wine that finishes smooth. The blend together creates a wine with delicious notes of black plum, cassis and boysenberry that are concentrated in the mid-palate and enveloped in bright cherry notes that deliver a graceful elegance and balanced finish.

      Cost: Payment required - $5/person
