WINES OF THE WEEK
WEST COAST WONDERS!
Onward Hen of the Wood Malvasia 2016
Delicate aromas of a melon patch on a warm, sunny day intertwined with night-blooming jasmine; layers of citrus, pear, Mirabelle plum, and yellow quince flavors; and a refreshing, clean finish, thanks to its vibrant acidity. This wine is delicately floral with layers of fruit and a backbone of minerality. She is elegant, pretty, and oh, so approachable!
Farmstrong Field Red 2015
Grapes: Carignane, Syrah
This wine fills the glass with aromas of dark fruit, pencil shavings, grilled bread, and hints of freshly ground white pepper, which are complemented by flavors of black plums, preserves, cranberry and warm Okanagan cherry clafouti that's been cooked in a cast iron pan. This wine has loads of fruit, mellow tannins, and complex aromatics, it is a go-to red, she is super fun and refreshingly reliable.
Broadside Wild Ferment Chardonnay 2018
Ripe pear and nectarine aromas show good clarity and pick up smoky lees and toasted grain nuances with aeration. Silky and open-knit, offering concentrated orchard and pit fruit flavors complemented by suggestions of fennel and honey. The smoky quality comes back on a long, smooth finish that leaves behind a refreshingly bitter pear skin note.
