This weekend we are excited to be joined by Kevin from David Bowler Wine. He will be in the store on Saturday pouring up three wines: a refreshing Gavi, a great value Pinot, and a delicious red from a new French Cru! Be sure to mark it on your calendar and we will see you in the store on Saturday, August 10th from 4-7pm!
Il Forte Gavi is a refreshing and versatile Italian white who's affordability is just the cherry on top. A delicious crowd pleaser, aromas of fresh flowers, pear, and light citrus leads into a palate of apple and pear flavors. Light and crisp this white will pair beautifully with all your summertime dishes including pesto pasta, grilled chicken, and white fish.
Estate-grown and organically farmed, Pence Ranch delivers the perfect summer Pinot! Sweet cherries, black tea, and spice on the nose leads into a medium-bodied palate of plum and raspberry flavors highlighted by light herbal notes.
In February 2016, Cairanne joined the elite ranks beside the likes of Chateauneuf du Pape and Gigondas, when it was awarded Cru status. Seen as consistently producing the highest quality wines of all the villages, the announcement couldn't have been better timed as the producers of Cairanne were awaiting the 2016 vintage bud break. With their first release under the new Cru status, Domaine de L'Ameillaud delivers a full, luscious, and approachable red that goes down too easy! Soft notes of blackberries, cherry, and jam on the nose leads into a full and rounded palate of dark fruits and licorice with hints of vanilla. A smooth and generous finish has us going back again and again for this French red!
