Wine Tasting for July 12, 13 and 14, 2018

The Wine Cellar has some great summer wines to taste this weekend!

Montinore Estate, Muller-Thurgau, Oregon: This 2014 vintage is made from the Muller Thurgau grape which is a lesser known variety of Riesling. This playful wine is a dry/semi sweet “Riesling”  with great mineral and lots of peach, apple, pineapple fruit on the nose. A wonderful wine to enjoy on a summer day!

Gerard Bertrand Perles de Sauvignon Blanc, France: This Sauvignon Blanc is characterized by its attractive citrus and a touch of menthol. The aging in oak barrels gives the wine structure and length on the mouth. This wine is in an exquisite bottle, with a blue glass stopper that evokes the Mediterranean coast and a glass pearl necklace to adorn this delicious wine.

Gran Vega Privado, Granacha (Campo de Borja) Spain:  A generous, easy drinking Garnacha! Fresh berry fruit without sweetness makes this a great, easy to drink summer red.

Freelander Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016 California: Aged in American French oak, this red wine shows lush mouth feel and balance and complexity. Rich in blackberry and cassis flavors, with ripe sweet tannins and a gentle finish. This gentle finish makes it a nice Cab for summer steak dinners.
