Tues-Thurs Tasting
Oct 13 – Oct 15

This week we try three tasty and unique wines from the big O. Featuring:

  • Left Coast Cellars Rosé, Willamette – This sustainably farmed rosé made from Pinot Noir (76%) and Pinot Meunier (24%) is barrel fermented and aged in French oak for six months creating a unique, dry blush: strawberries, pink grapefruit, watermelon and kiwi combine with just a touch of cream and minerals. $15 btl, $7 btg
  • Brandborg Gewurtz, Elkton – This Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wine (#24) is sourced from 30-year-old vines and strikes a beautiful balance between sweet and dry notes: incredibly rich and concentrated flavors of ripe apple, pear and orange marmalade combine with floral notes and a touch of citrus on the finish. $17 btl, $8 btg
  • Division-Villages “Béton”, Applegate – Taking an old-world style approach to winemaking (and using Loire Valley clones), this organic red blend of Cab Franc, Gamay, Pinot Noir and Cot (the ancestor of modern Malbec) is independently fermented then blended to create a food-friendly wine with notes of pepper, cassis, black plum and berries with a touch of earth on the finish. $24 btl, $9 btg

Tasting: $14
