3 Bottles of 2019 White’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc
100% Sauvignon Blanc out of Marlborough, NZ. Classically aromatic with texture and length, this is a fresh and immensely easy drinking Sauvignon Blanc. Perfumed with floral notes and green pepper, with a palate of limes, restrained minerality and a hint of tropical fruit. This is an easy drinking wine that is fresh and clean from front to back.
3 Bottles of L’Acote Rosé
A Rosé out of Provence, France that is a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 15% Cinsault. Attractive strawberry and red-currant flavors shine out of this lively wine. With good balance between the fruits and acidity, the wine finishes with a floral aftertaste.
3 Bottles of 2018 Banshee Pinot Noir
This Sonoma County Pinot Noir is an exciting, yet friendly wine, bursting at the seams with aromas of macerated wild berries and an elegant, soft earth undertone. The flavors combine both sweet and tart, reminiscent of Santa Rosa plums and wild blackberries that grow so commonly in Sonoma Wine Country. The finish is bright, slightly herbal, and savory making this an excellent food wine, as well as a charming drinking experience by itself.
3 Bottles of 2018 Trig Point Merlot
This Merlot is harvested from the Diamond Dust Vineyard in Alexander Valley just South of Geyserville. The vines have an average age of over 30 years. Merlot got a bad name over the years because so many people were making bad Merlot. This is not one of them!! It shows beautiful notes of red raspberry, dark chocolate, and bacon fat in the nose. On the palate is has red plum, red currant, blackberry, and Indian spice flavors. This lovely red has a full and round mouthfeel with soft tannins.
