Wine Specials 5/19-23/15

WINE : From Chris & Tony :
1) Italian 100% Barbera dry 2014 rose from TATI, a paler, more
rose-lighter-salmon color, DELIGHTFUL balance, flavor and taste for only
$8.99 a bottle! Nice.
2) 2013 off-dry red CASTILLO Del CONDE from Valencia, $9.99, that has
more flavor and taste, more nuances, a delightful charming, appealing taste
where the flavors keep revealing other elements that they conceal
sometimes, reveal others. Chill slightly, nice for this heat and humidity!
3) Dry Greek Rose blend of Xinomavro and Moschomavro grapes, this '
DioFili ' from the SIATISTA Winery in Siatista, Greece, is a delicate color
of rose-salmon, $12.99, and drinks beautifully and is charming - engaging!
Sotiris Bafitis had it open here this past Saturday, it was a big hit, each
year it is, come get some!
4) 2012 Portuguese dry red from the Duoro region, called " Tons "
Duorum, $13.49 a bottle, a fruit-forward, more modern and brighter dry
blend of three of the many grapes that make up a port : 1) 50% Touriga
Nacional, 2) 30% Touriga Franca and ... 3) 20% Tinta Roriz. It showed
beautifully when I poured it here this Friday evening, and we sold a lot,
even some on Saturday when I tasted the last of it to our customers! Thanks
Jody, great suggestion.

5) Ginzo Premium Japanese sake " Well Of Wisdom " from TOZAI, $14.99
for a 300ml bottle, with 14.9% alcohol by volume. Contains no sulfites and
is gluten-free ; lovely taste that is rich, with anise accents, and a long
finish, too. Beautiful Cobalt Blue bottle as well. What is not to
like?!? 6) Gruner Veltliner from Carnuntum, Austria, from NETZL, $15.49
a bottle, this classic 2014 has green apples, lemon zest, is full and
refreshing, and lovely accents of pepper on the palate, too! It is a
trocken/dry bottle to enjoy even with all this heat and humidity, chill - a
great summer food wine as well.

6) 2013 dry 100% Assyrtiko
