WINE From Chris & Tony :
1) Reserva 2011 Sauvignon Blanc from CASA SILVA in Chile's Colchagua
Valley, On Special for $9.99 a bottle, a deep discount, is still drinking
beautifully. I sampled it with Sal and liked how distinct, flavorful,
balanced and tasty it still is and think it will provide great, immediate
enjoyment now as the temperatures soar into the nineties. I highly
recommend it!
2) 2013 Rueda Soanish dry white from HONORO VERA from the Rueda
region, On Special for $9.99 now : I liked the acidity and the freshness,
the brightness and how lively it is, a delight with a meal, any summer
meal, even outside in this heat that is mounting, lovely : with a ' sci-fi
label that will appeal to many. I did not like the label, but did like the
wine! Cheers!
3) Blanc de Cabernet Sauvignon from ALBASTRELE and made in Moldova, a
2012, $11.99, 13% alcohol by volume, I love the lusher, fuller, more ripe
and evolved and bright flavors, and thought it was marvelous, a treat :
lovely to sip. I just tried the new vintage and did not think it was either
as tasty or as distinct. Glad to have some of this left. Dmitri came by
last week and tasted me on everything in his bag of treats : a great
tasting, a great showing for the wines of Moldova. What great news. Come
get some white Cabernet Sauvignon and rock out tonight and this week.
4) Green Tea, White Wine and Honey Infused Into ONE come together in
this great warm-weather sparkler called TEAVINE that is so refreshing and
slightly carbonated, $13.49 a bottle for the 750ml bottle, with 6.5%
alcohol by volume. It is a regular favorite here, made by James that grew
up here in Cleveland Park. Cheers!
5) Blanco Spanish Dry White, Vino De La Tierra De Castilla, 2012, On
Special, the last eight cases, for $.99 a bottle. You have all loved it and
the last of it is now back here by popular demand. Come get some while we
still have it. Cheers!
6) Monastrell/ Mourvedre 2013 made with 100% organic grapes from
Spain, made by HONORO VERA, On Special for $9.99 is so flavorful, balanced,
bright, fleshy and forward, and at this price with a chill of 30-minutes,
what a wonderful wine,dry red to enjoy now in this heat! Si! Si! Si! Si!
Si!
7) Verdelho 2012 dry white from California's Paso Robles region and
made by KENNETH VOLK Vineyard ( and tasted here this past weekend by John
Morrison ) is multi-layered, really lovely in thick skins that shed and
reveal so much depth with honey overtones, citrus and such mouth-grip-feel,
it was perhaps the best-selling here this past Saturday afternoon, everyone
loved it!
8) Languedoc 2012 Frech dry red blend from the DOMAINE Du PAS DE
L'ESCALETTE, $20.99, with 13.5% alcohol by volume, made by Julien Zernotte
& Delphine Rousseau, really classic, balanced, a fine dry
medium-bodied-to-lighter dry, pepper and spice and earthy-flavored red to
chill 30 minutes and serve with whatever you grill or season or marinate
for awhile before serving. Cheers! Go to : www.pasdelescalette.com for more
info on this tasty red that you may enjoy thoroughly now with a meal. Sante
a tous!
8) Txakolina rose secco dry 2014 from GANETA in the Basque country,
$21.99, with 11% alcohol by volume, clean and crisp, lean and yet fluid and
silky, bright and generous enough to make it thoroughly appealing and
really perfect to enjoy even outside with all this heat and humidity ! It
showed beautifully this past Friday when Estebe Salgado the President of
Tradewinds Specialty Imports poured it himself for you all. Nice, really
nice.
9) 2011 Lozen Arizona Dry Red Blend of 35% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc,
25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot, made by Tim White , made by
ARIZONA STRONGHOLD Vineyards in Camp Verde, Arizona: a wine of elegance,
very subtle and refined flavors that are perfect for this hotter weather of
ours now. Lovely, a really special treat that I highly recommend. Cheers!
