Oro Bello Chardonnay 2017
Creamy tropical fruit aromas range from pineapple to kiwi with Meyer lemon notes. A buttery treat - and Suzy’s favorite!
Corvidae Mirth Chardonnay 2017
Mirth is quintessential Chardonnay - bright tropical notes and excellent purity of flavor and balance unencumbered by oak flavor. We thought it would be perfect for the Vliet Street Fall Fest, and you agreed!
Banyan Gewurztraminer 2018
A nice balance between not too dry and not too sweet. Fragrance isn't fruity but more earthy. Sandy Barnette said she enjoyed this exactly 3.5 worth - on a scale of 1-3.
Calvet Rose Cremant de Bordeaux 2016
Mary Mann said this is a lovely, fresh dry with a nice hint of sweetness. Mary Mann also knew our wine distributor from other wine events. She is a credible source.
Tintero Moscato D’Asti, 2018 “Sori Gramella”
Fizzy and slightly sweet, an irresistible combination that makes it a universal favorite. Megan Doering says, “Yummo! I could drink a healthy amount of this and be very happy.” Gayle Kerznar seconds that with a “Yum!” and a spirited suggestion: “Dessert!”
Col Mesian Cuvee Spumante Extra Dry
Fresh and zesty with pretty aromas of honey, peach, and candied fruit. The mouthfeel has a sharp consistency, effervescence adds creamy foam and froth.
Lulumi Pinot Noir, 2017
Intense color - actually a nice garnet according to Astra Valters. The palate is medium-bodied with red berry fruit and an elegant, long finish. Ann Wyderen detected “a bit of pine”. You?
Compass Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
This wine is colored with black cherry and dark chocolate aromas accented by subtle smokiness. Walt and Ginny Boyer said it is lovely and pairs great with food. So, order a nosh, why don’t you?
$8.00 / $30.00
Chateau Massiac Minervois Rouge, 2018 “Les Sentinelles”
Ann Grippe said it was “nice”, but decided “celebratory” would be a better adjective. This blend is two-thirds Syrah and one-third Carignan, and a touch “sweet”. It earned the highest score of 5 with an arrow pointing up from Katrina Kozar. Pay attention!
Jean Marc Barthez Bordeaux Rouge 2015
Bordeaux blend of 50% Merlot 25% Cabernet Franc 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Jeff Cartier said to put it on the list, so we did.
$9.00 / $32.00
2018 Dupeuble Beaujolais
Low levels of tannin and trademark aromas of juicy red fruit and spice. This is what good Beaujolais is all about. Carrie Zuithoff gave it a 4.5. She’s a math teacher, so that is high praise!
Grand Retour CdR Villages Rouge "Plan de Dieu" 2015
65% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre Rhone Valley, France. Thad gave it A+. We agree!
Quintana do Infantado Tawny Porto
Excellent body and richness, with notes of roasted hazelnuts and sultanas followed by just a hint of sweetness. Simply delicious.
Quintana do Infantado Ruby Porto
Elegant and rich, this dark, juicy port has an excellent balance of fruit, acid, sugar, and tannin. It is all-around easy to drink and enjoy.
Lustau - NV East India Solera
Sherry Brown sugar and caramel. Very long finish with hints of Turkish coffee. Peggy Dooley says it’s sort of Christmas at Downton Abbey in a glass. $6.00
