Wine List for Weekly Tasting

Terrific 12’s…a celebration of “Quality to Value!”

This Saturday, Wine ConneXtion presents twelve unique and impressive wines- ALL under $12.00!, to show that great wines need not break the bank.

Wolffer Estate, “Classic White Table Wine”, White Blend, 2016

$11.99

This Classic White is a blend of estate-grown Chardonnay with Gewurztraminer and Riesling from the Finger Lakes, with fresh citrus aromas, vibrant fruit, and crisp acidity.

Domaine Barons de Rothschild, “Legende”, White Bordeaux, 2016

$11.99

Silver straw in color, this wine has a pleasing fragrance, with aromas of lemongrass, orange zest, slight honey and spice notes. Somewhat tart on the palate, the citrus flavors take a moment or two to develop. It is nicely balanced and has a faint mineral character.

Charles Krug, “St. Helena-Napa Valley”, Sauvignon Blanc, 2016

$11.99

Charles Krug signature style Sauvignon Blanc with an eclectic array of fresh aromas giving the wine a beautiful bouquet of honeydew, peach skin, lemon, grass and pear. Flavors of stone fruit and apricot balance seamlessly for a vibrant texture and crisp acidity. Just a hint of minerality rounds out the finish of this refreshing wine.

Legonziano, “Anxanum”, Pecorino, N/V

$11.99

Brilliant greenish yellow color. Intense, pleasing, clean and elegant aromas of passion fruit and grapefruit. Agreeable crisp attack, however, well-balanced with fresh, intense flavors with a clean, full body.

River Walk, Pinot Noir, 2016

$11.99

Red wine doesn't get much smoother—and values in Pinot Noir don't get much better—than this. The wine has attractive red- and black-cherry aromas, a sense of richness on the palate and a silky mouthfeel that's hard to resist. Subtlety and restraint keep this wine from tiring the taste buds.

Chateau Portillon, Red Bordeaux Blend, 2014

$11.99

The nose shows red fruits, cedar, violets and spice, with complex flavors on the palate of plum, cherry, and cassis with good minerality. As with many good Bordeaux wines, this one requires some aeration, either by decanting or pouring through an aerator before enjoying.

Zenato, “Superiore”, Valpolicella, 2016

$11.99

Ruby-red in color tending toward garnet as the wine matures. Dry and robust on the palate with an excellent velvety texture, this wine offers fleshy aromas of wild berries, currant, black cherry and spice, framed by hints of chocolate. It can be aged for some years, and it is recommended with antipasti or roasted meats.

Sol Fa Soul, Malbec, 2016

$11.99

Aromas of black cherries and plums are accompanied by notes of violets and vanilla. On the palate the wine is rich and full-bodied with flavors of juicy blackberries, cranberries, and black currants abound, followed by notes of vanilla and sweet spice. Pair this Malbec with a meat dish that mirrors its tangy berry flavors like cranberry pot roast or roast duck with sour cherry sauce.

Memoria, “Salice Salentino Riserva”, Primitivo, 2013

$11.99

The Manduria Salice Salentino Riserva shows a greater level of depth and finesse compared to many of its peers. The wine is packed tight with blackberry fruit, with Maraschino cherry, plum and prune in abundance. The wine is chewy and rich for sure, but it also provides an authentic and generous portrait of a red wine from Puglia. A spicy beef or lamb dish would make the perfect pairing partner.

Vina Bujanda, “Rioja”, Tempranillo, 2016

$11.99

The Vina Bujanda Crianza is produced from 30-year-old Tempranillo vines fermented in stainless steel and aged for 12 months in used barrels. It displays an attractive bright red ruby color, aromas of wild strawberries, clove, pepper, vanilla and a hint of leather and it-s easy and pleasant to drink, medium-bodied, with clean acidity. A great Crianza at a great price.

Broadside, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2015

$11.99

Broadside Cabernet Sauvignon is the result of Broadside's faithful effort to capture a pure and unadulterated representation of the grape and site. With 1000 feet of elevation and a chilling coastal influence, the well-drained soils at Margarita Vineyard provide a balance of stress and sustenance to the rugged vines. Black currant and berry compote highlight a brightly wound core of berry fruit and spice. Finishes dry with a sleek vein of minerality

Predator "Old Vine" Zinfandel, 2016

$11.99

Predator has gorgeous deep ruby color, bold aromas, velvety texture and delicious flavors of ripe cherries, blackberries, French vanilla, white pepper, and exotic spices with a silky, lingering finish.
