WINES OF THE WEEK
SOME OF THE BEST WINE DEALS!
J Brix Hornswoggle Stay in Bed Red 2017
These juicy little numbers are composed of Carignan and Syrah, and don't the bush and the bramble tangle nicely together? It's pretty darn luscious, y'all. Chill lightly, pair with barbecue or pizza or burgers.
Murrieta's Well The Whip 2016ORDER HERE!
Aromatic white varietals on their estate, such as Viognier, Orange Muscat and Muscat Canelli, that provide beautiful fruit and floral expressions, such as Magnolia blossom, lychee and dried lime peel. They use those varieties and others to accentuate the rich and full palate provided by their estate Chardonnay and Semillon enhanced by the wonderful natural acidity of their Sauvignon Blanc. This helps them deliver a complete wine that tells the story of their estate each and every vintage. Enjoy now through 2022.
Onward Skin Fermented Malvasia 2015
Deep gold and slightly cloudy, like a well-loved ring. Its aromatics are subtle but tropical, suggesting mango and passion fruit, but there's also a drifting lilt of wet autumn leaves. The mood switches on the palate, which starts as burnished pome fruits-quince, Asian pear-but settles into a savory brew of ginger and green tea. The acidity is modest but the wine earns substance and texture from its skin and lees experience. Imagine eating a ripe Bosc pear: it's tannic and sweet, watery and gritty, juicy and chewy, and subtle. This wine's a bit like that.
Señorío de P. Peciña Cosecha Tinto 2016
91 Points Tim Atkin
Bright garnet red, with good depth of color and clarity which gives it a bright sheen in the glass. Fruity aromas of plums and blackberries and black fruits. Balsamic notes on the palate with good acidity. Fresh and pleasant to drink. Lots of fruity nuances.
Swick Chenin Blanc 2017
This wine actually sits on the skins for a full two weeks after pressing, so along with being unfiltered and only racked once, it definitely got some texture. Waxy and fulsome but still sharp.
Villa Wolf Sparkling Pinot Noir Rosé NV
The Pfalz is a very warm and sunny region, often called the "Tuscany of Germany," so all of the Pinot varieties do well here. The Villa Wolf Pinot Noir Rosé is a true rosé, made with a brief maceration before pressing to extract color. It is light and refreshing, with deliciously bright berry and fruit flavors and a clean, zippy finish.
