WINES OF THE WEEK 11/27-12/3!
Le Campuget Blanc 2015
60% Grenache Blanc, 40% Viognier
The grapes are vinified separately, fermented at a cold temperature and then carefully blended to make this cuvee. Unoaked to retain its fruitiness.
Peachy nose, a hint of spiciness on the palate, with bright fresh fruit, crisp acidity and a long finish.
Rabble Red 2014
The nose blooms first with red cherry, ripe plum to dark raspberry with hints of anise seed and ending dusty suede. Explosive on the palate, like taking a bite out of fresh blueberry pie with a toasted crust. Lush ripe fruits give way to supple tannin, layers of dark and bright berries with balanced acidity and firm yet restrained structure. The strong finish lingers of black tea and plum.
Penley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Aromas consist of violets, black currant leaf, ripe wild berries and integrated spice notes. Mulberry and blackberry characters drive the palate and are enhanced by a young tight tannins and elegant complex cedar oak, so typical of the Penley Style. A very generous mid palate with a hint of licorice and chocolate lingers on the finish.
