WOW WINES OF THE WEEK | 2/17-2/23!

Posted by Rose Friedlander on

Weingut Pittnauer - Red Pitti
Grapes: Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch, and St. Laurent
90 Points Wine Enthusiast
An intriguing touch of salty licorice hangs over the nose before black-cherry notes reassert themselves. They burst on the juicy palate and deliver dense but easy pleasure, bags of fruit and tons of charm. This is medium-bodied, dry, with a slight tannic grip. The finish is juiciness itself

Rudi Wiest Riesling Gryphon Crest 2018
A blend of fruit from both the Saar and the middle Mosel (vineyards surrounding Piesport and Bernkastel) this lovely value Riesling darts and dances on the palate with Margarita-like kicks of salt and lime. Just a shade off dry, its delicate sweetness lends balance to zesty acidity and a cool, mineral finish.

Ercole Barbera del Monferrato Rosso 2018
Barbera is to Monferrato like crab cakes are to Maryland, it's what they do! This bottling of 100% Barbera holds up to the reputation of its locale. Flexing the classic markers of bright acidity, ripe fruit, and beautifully balanced structure. Pop the top on this bad mama-jama when the grill is lit and those burgers are sizzling.  And did I mention that is a Liter!
