Orders for this box due by August 20th, with pick up on August 21st.
3 Bottles of 2019 Cavalotto ‘Pinner’ Pinot Nero Bianco
This white Pinot Noir out of Piedmont, Italy is amazing. The juice is fermented without any skin contact to make a white wine from this well known red grape. The aromas are principally fruity of apple, pear and pineapple with scents of white flowers. The taste is really fresh and delicate, with great elegance and perfect balance.
3 Bottles of 2019 Protocolo Rose
This organic and sustainable rose out of Spain is a blend of Bobal and Tempranillo. Pale pink in color, this wine is accessible and juicy. It has notes of wonderful red fruit of strawberry, raspberry, and cherry with hints of a floral finish. It is delicious and fresh. Outstanding on a hot day or possibly made in to Frose!!!
3 Bottles of 2017 Birichino Scylla Red Blend
This blend out of California is 62% Carignan, 33% Grenache, and 5% Mouvedre. The fruit is sourced largely from acres of old vines hidden in plain sight along the backroads of Lodi. Two old Carignane vineyards planted circa 1920 comprise the backbone of this wine, supplemented by traditional sources Grenache and Mourvedre, bringing the average vine age to 99 years. Scylla is silky, a bit perfumed, yet gently firm. It has a floral, aromatic nose of red and black fruits which are really crunchy on the palate with a lingering, spicy finish.
3 Bottles of 2018 Wolftrap Red
This red out of South Africa is dark and dense on appearance. The brooding nose is intense and shows an abundance of dark fruits. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, baking spices, and heady whiffs of violets create complexity. Dark berry fruit, licorice, notes of sweet tobacco, and allspice follow through onto a vibrant mid-palate with bright tannins and a silky texture. The wine shows exceptional balance with fresh, integrated acidity. Dark plums, black olives, and hints of tar and cigar box linger on an earthy finish.
