My goal for this tasting is to bring focus back to our lives ...wine focus that is!
I've put together a lineup that's perfect to wrap up a memorable week and to start a weekend of fun and celebration. Rob J will be on the keyboard providing musical entertainment.
I'll kick off the evening with "The G Spot", a Lodi Valley Viognier brought to us by the talented winemakers of The Dirty Pure project. This wine features spicy, mineral scented aromas of orange, jasmine and pear and flavors of honeydew melon and grapefruit. Pairs with creamy dishes, rich shellfish, poultry and casseroles.
Next, I'll pour samples of a 2015 "Tiki Sound", our new Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand's top wine region. The Tiki is crisp and refreshing, with tropical fruit and gooseberry flavors. It shows herbal notes with notable acidity - a perfect Sauv Blanc for all occasions!
My first red is a "Heinrich" Zweigelt, the latest addition to our Austrian selection. This is a dry, medium-bodied red with a smooth texture, flavors of black fruit, spice and fine acidity. Made with Zweigelt, the quintessential Austrian wine grape, the Heinrich is among the best reds available in its class.
Last but not least is a delicious "Force of Nature" Paso Robles red Zinfandel. Full-bodied, with flavors of wild strawberries, orange blossom, drizzled chocolate and a superb structure, this Mossfire Ranch Zin is a true gem - you'll love it!
See you all on Friday!
