Tuesday August 23rd 2016
6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

NV Roederer Estate Brut
Anderson Valley, California
60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir
Crisp and elegant with complex pear, spice and hazelnut flavors. It is fresh and lightly fruity with great finesse and depth of flavor.
91 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $9.50 Retail $22.99

2013 Sbragia Home Ranch Chardonnay
Sonoma, California
Sbragia displays a Midas touch with Chardonnay, and the 2013 Chardonnay Home Ranch is a big-time winner. Aged in 50% new oak and 50% older oak, it exhibits buttery crème brûlée and tangerine oil notes intermixed with honeysuckle and pineapple. Medium to full-bodied and luscious, with admirable fruit intensity as well as a long, textured, luscious finish. This is also a stunning value for a Chardonnay of this quality.
93 Pts Robert Parker
BTG $9.00 Retail $21.99

2013 Folie a Deux Pinot Noir
Sonoma Coast, California
Deeply concentrated aromas of strawberry jam and black cherry, with subtle hints of cola and spice, framed by a palate of cherry, cranberry,
toffee, leather and tobacco.
BTG $6.50 Retail $13.99

2014 The Federalist Zinfandel
Lodi, California
93% Zinfandel, 7% Syrah
Different blocks were fermented separately to preserve ideal characteristics of each. Each block spends an average of 12 days on the skins.
Aged 12 months in 25% new Oak aromas of red fruits (plum, cherry) and cinnamon spice, a good density, firm tannin structure, and a long, smooth finish.
BTG $7.50 Retail $16.99

2012 Ferrari Carano Tresor
Sonoma, California
A blend of the classic Bordeaux varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Vibrant aromas and flavors of fresh blackberry jam, cassis, cedar, anise, blueberry, spiced rum, coffee and caramel combine with a rich mid-palate with round tannins. This wine’s upfront silkiness and roundness make for a delicious selection now and will drink well for 15—20 years.
BTG 16.00 Retail $39.99
