Memorial Day Weekend is finally here and we are kicking it off with four awesome wines for you to taste and celebrate. The tasting line up includes great bottles from top Spain, California and Italy vintners. Our very own Rob J will be providing live musical entertainment.
The festivities begin with pours of a "Mestres Coupage Premium Rose Cava", one of Spain's best sparkling wines. Aged for 30 months, this fine bubbly displays vibrant flavors of red fruit, floral notes and spices, and good balance of sugars and acidity. Kick-off your holiday party in style with this gem. Mestres has been making wine in Spain since the 1600's. Highly recommended!
Next is a Central Coast "Zwicker" blend of Gewürztraminer, Muscat, and Riesling. Fermented in stainless steel, the wine is clean, pure and refreshing, with light body and notes of elderflower, jasmine, peach, lychee and grapefruit. Great with fish, chicken, turkey burgers and Asian.
My first red is a "Reversanti Barbaresco", a true classic from Italy's iconic Piedmont region. This 100 % NebIollo has remarkable elegance and complexity with aromas of bright red fruit with a hint of mint and rosemary with sweet tannins. You’ll love this outstanding new addition to our Italian selection. 5 stars!!!
My last pour is a "Highflyer Centerline" Napa Valley blend of Merlot, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Sangiovese. This wine over delivers with a focus on fruit and structure. It has aromas of black cherry, chocolate and spicy notes, a full, rich palate and a touch of lush tannins. Perfect for your holiday weekend cookouts with friends and family.
See you all on Friday!
