This Wine Friday we are rolling out the rainbow carpet to celebrate Pride with a four- wine lineup that you don't want to miss. Our very own Rob J will be playing live.
We’ll start with a superb "Château la Genestière" from Tavel, France's only appellation dedicated to producing exclusively rose wines. This refreshing, off-dry rose will dazzle your palate with flavors and aromas of raspberry, strawberry, rhubarb, and minerals. Great with salads, soft cheeses, charcuterie and more.
Next is a Louis Latour Montagny Premier Cru “La Grande Roche” white Burgundy, a truly outstanding "Chardonnay" from one of Frances’s most revered wine houses (since 1797). This classic white reveals floral aromas of acacia and honeysuckle and notes of almonds and apricot on the palate. Extremely food friendly and a great value!
My first red is a "Bodegas Tridente Tempranillo" from Spain’s Castilla y Leon appellation. This bright, young red has concentrated flavors of ripe red fruit, spice and chocolate, all wrapped in a long, elegant finish. Perfect with Spanish, Latin and Mediterranean cuisines.
Last but not least is a 2014 "Hauner Hiera Rosso", a distinctive blend made with indigenous Sicilian grapes in an earthy, spicy style that you’ll fall in love with. This full-bodied red has a deep ruby color, intense flavors of blackberries, blueberries and a memorable finish. Great with pasta, pizza, grilled fish and chicken. Highly recommended!
See you all on Friday!
