No charge for Tastings

2013 Jules Taylor Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand
Lovely tropical fruit notes of pineapple, passion fruit and guava with an undercurrent of honeycomb and toast spring from the glass of 2012 Sauvignon Blanc. This medium-bodied white offers tons of ripe, tropical, fruit salad flavors in the mouth plus a refreshing backbone of acidity to lift through the long finish with some toasty notes coming through.

2010 Cuvelier Los Andes Colleccion Blend (Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Petit Verdot)

Polished and well-structured, this red offers fine tannins and fresh acidity supporting notes of pure cassis and black cherry puree. Spice, mineral and dark tobacco hints add range to the finish. 91 Pts Wine Spectator

2009 Somerston Highflyer Centerline Red (Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Grenache)
Napa Valley, Napa, North Coast, California
This wine over delivers with a focus on fruit and structure. The wine is balanced and the aromas are ripe with black cherry, chocolate, and spicy notes leap out of the glass. The palate full and rich with a touch of lush tannins, fresh berries, and rounded out by good acidity and integrated oak. 89 Pts Wine Advocate
