3 Bottles of Jean-Baptiste Adam Cremant D’Alsace Brut Rosé
A sparkling rose from the French region of Alsace is 100% Pinot Noir from a winery that has been growing grapes and producing wine for over 400 years! It has appetizing notes of strawberry and Red Delicious apple create an inviting opening. These same flavors play on the very frothy, totally fruit-driven but dry palate. It is both fresh and refreshing and with its fruit-forward style.
3 Bottles of 2018 Tea Leaf White Blend
This white blend of 65% Chenin Blanc, 35% Grenache Blanc, and 5% Palomino from the Western Cape of South Africa is delightful!! It has a complex stone fruit nose with notes of crushed granite, slightly saline. The palate has firm, high-key fruit, a gentle, sandy texture and persistence. Ultimately this is a deeply satisfying wine made from a blend of old bush vines.
3 Bottles of 2017 Steele ‘Writer’s Block’ Cabernet Franc
This Cabernet Franc from Lake County, CA has aromas of red cherry, raspberry, plum, and licorice. Flavors are of red fruit, raspberry, and plum with smooth acidity, followed by soft tannins. This wine is aged for 15 months in Hungarian and French Oak.
3 Bottles of 2018 Grale Rosso
Grale from Le Grascete is red blend out of Tuscany, or “Super Tuscan” if you will. It drinks far outside of it’s price point!! It is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, and Merlot. An elegant and balanced wine with a full body, soft tannins, notes of earth, and has a long fruit forward finish.
