Gruet Brut N/V New Mexico
The Brut offers a crisp, and full-bodied sparkling wine, which has developed rich complexity and fine mousse. The allure of toasty finish from twenty-four months on tirage, is a complement to the sophisticated apple and citrus flavor.
Terlan Pinot Bianco Italy 2017
With wonderful aromas of apple cider, lemon zest, this clean and focused wine expands on the palate to reveal warm apple crisp, clove and quince nuances. Possessing a long, concentrated citrus finish, this wine pairs perfectly with roasted pork, shellfish and egg-based sauces or as a charming cocktail beverage.
Chateau Pegau Cote’ du Rhone France 2016
This rich, densely-layered Cotes du Rhone Villages was crafted by Laurence Feraud, owner of Domaine du Pegau (Chateauneuf-du-Pape). Sourced from old, 50-year-old vines, it is loaded with classic Cotes du Rhone red fruit and spice, with the hallmark stamp of Pegau. Try pairing with cooked red meats, especially lamb with couscous and fresh thyme.
Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel California 2015
This wine puts bold, spicy, flashy oak at center stage, and introduces a good supporting cast of gorgeous blackberry and black-plum flavors. Firm tannins lend support and balance out the performance nicely.
