6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2014 D’ESCLANS Whispering Angels Rose
Provence, France
A beautiful peachy pink or light salmon color. The nose is fresh with pure, sweet notes of raspberry and strawberry. The wine is completely dry with a slight glycerol roundness married to a serious acid backbone. Those same pure fruit aromas are mirrored on the palate. The wine is fresh and bright; it’s expansive on the mid-palate, and has long, clean, fresh finish. 92 Pts Bordeaux Index

Napa Valley, Ca
Fruit aromas of white peach and Fuji apple fill your nose along with brioche toast and a touch of spice. The palate zings with bright acidity, unveiling ripe apple and pear fruit, with lovely tropical and pineapple flavors. Round and creamy mouthfeel finishes with a crisp and clean finish. 91 Pts Wine Review Online

Almost floral, with tones of lavender, dried berries, baking chocolate, bacon bits. Aromas are rich, velvety and wonderfully appealing. PALATE: Silky round entry with acid to balance and high fruit concentration. The nose leaves no doubt about the seriousness of this wine. The palate is fruit driven both before and after the high tannin middle core. The finish is long, not drying of tannin, and beckons a second sip.

2012 Duckhorn Decoy Red Blend
Napa Valley, California
62% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Zinfandel, 4% Cabernet Franc
The exceptional 2012 growing season yielded a delicious Decoy Red Wine with voluptuous boysenberry jam and bramble aromas, as well as hints of violet and spice. On the palate, lush red and black fruit flavors are accentuated by well-proportioned tannins that add structure while carrying the wine to a long, satisfying finish.

Napa Valley, California
40% Merlot, 40% Petite Sirah and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Ripe blackberry and blackcurrant fruit intermixed with notions of chocolate, lavender, unsmoked cigar tobacco and underbrush are present in this meaty, chewy, attractive, velvety textured 2012. Enjoy this well-made red over the next decade. 90 Pts Robert Parker
BTG $13.00 Retail 36.99
