Wine Specials 10/11-18

WINE From Chris & Tony :
     1) Dornfelder indigenous off-dry, fruity, fresh, vibrant red from Carl WEINBERG, from Germany's Rheinhessen region, On Special for the ridiculously-low price of $5.99 a bottle, WOW, this is amazing if you want a fruit-forward, fruit-centered, fruit-bright - ALL ABOUT the FRUIT wine, amazing! Try it, holds up longer, brighter, fresher, because of the extra ripe fruit here that some would call unctuous!
     2) 2007 dry red CLOS ROJA Spanish blend from the region of Priorat, this 50% Carignan, 30% Grenache, and 10% Syrah is mature, very layered and complex, packs a great ' kiss and impact ' and over-delivers for this ridiculously low price of only $12.99 On Special. It is definitely a food wine, so much going on here, even mature as it is, it still has many years to go and to delight, not diminishing in any way, still growing and developing, a treat with flavorful meals, grilled or well-seasoned : vegetables, cheeses, pate, meats, smoked foods, too. Cheers : back again by popular demand, limited supply now, get some while you still can,
