Wine Specials 10/20-27/2015 Ola Bom Dia Hola Hello! Fine Wines! Vinhos Finos! Vin Fin Aussi! Venga Aqui , Come See Us!

WINE By Chris And Tony :

1) Pinotage 2013 from South Africa's Swartland region, since 1941,
made by RIEBEEK CELLARS, this $7.99 dry smooth red has just enough pepper
and spice and taste to make it quite delightful, and so amazingly
affordable, too! I tasted it on Sunday for a bridal shower that I hosted
and it showed really well.

2) Dry Rioja red from ALTOS On Special for $9.99 a bottle, with 13.5%
alcohol by volume is showing really well. Chris and I tried it recently
with Jeff Palmer and decided immediately that we had to have it back!
Smooth, polished, bright, good spice and definition, showing fabulously,
classically for only ten bucks! Wow, love it!!!

3) White Borges Oporto/port, $11.99, with 19% alcohol by volume is
drinking beautifully. I sampled it twice this Sunday, again for the bridal
shower I hosted for twenty-two women. I tasted it by itself to be sure it
was okay after I pulled the cork, and as we were running out of time and
the Mango cake was being served I said : " Let's add a splash of the BORGES
white port to our dry sparkling Spanish Cava from Rossinyol De Moragas,

$16.99 a bottle. It will complement better the richness of the Mango and
other fruit flavors. " And it did, and in doing so, we created something I
never hear anything about but which works well with sweets, putting a
splash or two or three of BORGES white port into some of the ROSSINYOL De
Moragas espumante Cava : what fun, what cheer, what a great sense of
discovery and making things work on the spur of the moment. Love it. It
also tastes great on it's own, and also with tonic water, it makes a great
summer drink with some crushed ice in the glass, perfect to chill you down,
or to warm you up, depending on how you serve it.

4) Moschofilero 2013 from FTERI , Arcadia, Greece ( Nassos just
dropped this off, says there are five producers and this is one of the best
) from the TROUPIS Winery, $15.49 a bottle, 12.5% , and made from 100%
Moschofilero grapes.

5) 90% Mandalaria and 10% Mavrotragano , 13% alcohol by volume, ...
this dry red ' Atlantis ' from the ESTATE ARGYROS on Greece's island of
Santorini, a 2012, is a delight to enjoy now and I highly recommend it to
you all. I just tasted the dry white this past Sunday and would recommend
it here, I do recommend it, but I only have three bottles of it, so I
highly recommend that you come and buy a bottle of the red and the white,
and even the rose and make a special party and occasion with these
wonderful three Atlantis wines that I have! Cheers!

6) ' Palazzina ' 2013 Sangiovese Superiore from TENUTA CASALI , $18.99
a bottle, with 13.5% alcohol in it, ... this unfiltered dy and elegant and
toasty, lovely roasted dark and bright berry-flavored Italian red from
Romagna is a pure delight, I really like it, I do, it is a fine wine to
enjoy with your meal, you will like it, a treat, and under $20! And you may
taste it here this Saturday with family member Sylvie that will be here
tasting it with Robert Kennedy from 2-6PM. Come taste, get a bottle signed,
enjoy, live a little, live as little gloriously now, in the moment, why not
, what are we all waiting for?!?

7) Spanis Cava from ROSSINYOL De Moragas, the Brut dry, $18.99, with
12% alcohol by volume is showing magnificently and I do highly recommend
it. Come try some, a bright utter delight sparkling Spanish cava from the
Penedes region. Cheers!

8) Le Grand COURTAGE Brut sparkling wine from France will be tasted
here tomorrow from 5-8PM by Erin. It is still On Special for $19.99 a
bottle, and we will taste it again to share it's pure brightness and joy
with you, with only 11.5% alcohol by volume, it is a Blanc de Blancs to
really celebrate in an easy and comfortable way!

9) ' Baruccia ' 2011 Sangiovese Superiore Romagna, Italian red from
TENUTA CASALI has more body and depth and gravitas than the ' Palazzina ' I
wrote up earlier here. It is a fine food wine, a really fine wine to be
enjoyed with one of your meals to warm and cheer and make you feel as if
you can move on and along and feel good and even a bit rested and pleased
as you do! Imagine that, imagine this fine ' Baruccia ' touching your lips
and all your thirsty, parched taste-buds, too. Silvie Casali will also
taste this here this coming Saturday, Oct. 24th, 2015 , a free tasting as
always, with Robert Kennedy, join us!

10) 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State's Columbia Valley,
from MURRAY, $22.99 a bottle, with 14.1% alcohol by volume, this is a
deeper, thicker, denser , more modern mouthful and taste that hits harder,
and where the punch lands right on your taste-buds forcefully. No holding
back here, robust and hearty Cab flavors for a meal, like something grilled
outside, some barbecue with a tasty sauce, too.

11) SHVO Vineyards 2011 Sauvignon Blanc from Israel's Upper Galilee,
$34.99, with 13.5% alcohol by volume is showing really well, so flavorful,
so rich, so thick and viscous and hearty and rolling-bold-flow-fleshy and
flirting and flaming warm and tasty! I loved it last night as we celebrated
Galeet's birthday party at our home last night where I grilled salmon and
also made a fresh batch of pesto, with pasta, salad, the works! Nothing was
holding or held back, least of all the wine : a shining star that is from
Israel but not kosher. Galeet recognized the wine when she saw it, smiled
and said that she had been there, as she described it : " a part of
paradise here on earth. " Now I definitely need to go as I love the wines.
She said that it is a valley really packed with the various fruits grown
there, lush and verdant and packed, memorable to her, very.

WE JUST HAD A GUEST VISIT from Miguelangel Cerda come and taste his
fabulous Mallorcan dry white QUIBIA made from the red grape Callet but
without the red color, but all the flavor of Callet, and the AN and the AN
2 , I liked the AN 2 best as it is much lighter, a 2013 that is readier to
drink than the 2010 AN which needs another 5-10 years for me! Wonderful
expressions of these wines, we will add the QUIBIA which is an imaginary
place created in their minds, I would go there, the dry white Quibia takes
me there! Gracias Miguelangel!
