ANNIVERSARY SALE EXTENDED SALE WINES
Broc Cellars Sparkling Chenin Blanc 2017
Whole cluster pressed in stainless steel with four months in bottle before release, disgorged by hand with no dosage, this exciting pale straw chenin is yeasty and unfiltered, with a hint of chenin's classic dry honey crystal character on the nose and great, drying acidity on the palate. Notes of chalk from the calcareous fossils that underlie the sandy topsoil in Shell Creek vineyard move through to a fine hint of spearmint on the finish. Great for a honey-glazed chicken or tagine with mint, or just relaxing with friends in a sweater on some rooftop on an autumn afternoon.
Des Amis Napa Valley Rosé 2017
Brilliant sunburst amber color. Smoky, savory aromas and flavors of smoked nuts, caramelized dried fruits, hibiscus, and hint of tar with a supple, bright, dry medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length watermelon, sour cherries spritzed with lime, and mango with chile and limon finish. A very dry and appetizing rose.
Domaine Pépière Cuvee Granit 2013
A blend of 50% Cabernet Franc, 20% Côt, 20% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. This bore a nose of fine graphite, white pepper, and sweet floral potpourri. In the mouth were tart, red fruit then black fruit. The white pepper continues through the wine. The lighter and dry flavors had watering acidity before turning tart black with very fine ripeness in the finish.
