WINE TASTING LIST

2016 Chardonnay – Sur Lies $26 – GOLD MEDAL WINNER
Lush aromas of pear, summer nectarines, cantaloupe and creamy butter. Notes of vanilla and butterscotch linger on the palate. Oak-barreled, well balanced with a smooth mouth feel.

2017 Sauvignon Blanc $26
An elegant pear, Granny Smith apple and melon flavor, hints of citrus, currants, white pepper, and finishes with a mid-palate spiciness and crispness. Summer memories of mom’s apple pear turnover.

2014 Bonnie’s Deux Rouges $29
A Syrah-Zinfandel blend with a ripe cherry, touch of earthiness aroma, soft, smooth plum, cranberry, and blackberry with a warm spicy, lingering finish. A baked cranberry plum tart.

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon,  Casa de Vina  $32 – BRONZE MEDAL WINNER
Juicy, fruit forward, silky, earthy leather, touch of coriander, with balanced tannins and acid.   Thoughts of blackberries on a fig newton and shaved bakers’ chocolate.

2015 Barbera   $32 
Italy’s favorite varietal offers enticing raspberry aromas, tasty dark cherry and plum. Earthy with a hint of nutmeg and rustic space.

2015 Zinfandel   $35

TASTING FOR CLUB MEMBERS ONLY! NEW RELEASES MAY 18, 2019
2018 Miners Rosé of Sangiovese
Aromas of candied strawberry balanced with brine on the nose. Summery tropical notes of star fruit, guava and pineapples carry a richly textured palate that feels lush while remaining refreshing.

2018 Sauvignon Blanc
Hints of wet stone leads on this mineral nose with nuances of white nectarine and honeysuckle. Flavors of lemongrass and jasmine come across the palate while a firm acidity lingers through the pleasing finish.

2016 Barbera
Notes of brambly blackberry fruit and allspice pave the way for cassis, earthy leather and dried tobacco leaf. Followed by roasted coffee on the mid-palate and warm jam through the finish.

2013 Petite Sirah
This wine may bring you to the dark side. Dark and delicious, that is. Violets on the nose, black cherries on the palate and inky tannins on the finish.
