Tuesday February 13th 2018
6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2015 Murrietas Well Whip White Blend
Livermore Valley, Central Coast, Ca
Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Chardonnay, Viognier and Muscat Canelli.
Fragrant, with peach blossom and honeyed notes of baked apple that are rich and unctuous. The core of citrus and apple flavors is juicy and crisp, finishing with an appealing spicy accent. 91 Pts Wine Spectator
Btg $8.25 Retail $19.99

2015 Landmark Overlook Chardonnay
Sonoma County, Ca
Richly soft, round and concentrated, this wine is exuberant in apple flavor, with a touch of stone fruit and papaya. It has a pleasing succulence that should broadly appeal. 90 PTS Wine Enthusiast
BTG $8.25 Retail $19.99

2014 Chateau De Lescours
St Emilion, Bordeaux, France
80% Merlot. 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
Moderately dense very dark red with brick. The nose conveys the ripeness of the vintage and is just opening, revealing warmth and moderate substance. There is budding complexity: dark plummy fruit, balsamic accents, and a trace of barnyard. This Right Bank wine has a soft, polished feel in the mouth and is medium- to full-bodied with toasty and dusty notes in the finish. Well-integrated acidity and soft tannins become apparent at the end. This is a typical and satisfying Saint-Emilion with a somewhat old-school profile. Approachable now, but it stands to develop until 2020. 90 Pts Wine Enthusiast
BTG $11.25 Retail $29.99

2014 Purple Heart
Napa Valley, California
This blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon was made as a dedication to the bravery of our men and women in the military. It is a joint project of Ray Coursen, a Vietnam veteran, and David Grega, a veteran of Iraq. This is a delicious, fruit-driven wine with red and black fruits, some spice, medium to full body, easygoing tannins, and a fleshy mouthfeel and finish. 89 PTS Wine Advocate
BTG $8.25 Retail $19.99

2014 Moss Roxx Ancient Vine Zinfandel
Lodi, California
This is not your everyday wine. A big flavorful Zinfandel from Lodi’s half to century year-old vines. A dense and dark red wine. Mature round tannins accenting generous cherry, raspberry, chocolate, caramel, and baking spice with a smooth, long finish. This Zinfandel is truly a delectable expression of Lodi’s signature terroir.
BTG $9.00 Retail $22.99
