Kaiken Reserve Malbec 2012     ($9.99 During Tasting)

  • Fruity aromas that intermingle with aromas of wildflowers and a predominance of black fruits accompanies by notes of coffee and chocolate flavors that develop with oak aging. the palate is smooth, with a well-balanced acidity, round and elegant tannins, and medium-long persistence on the finish.

Norton Reserve Malbec      ($17.99 During Tasting)

  • “Toasty yet ripe, showing ample mesquite and mocha notes to the raspberry ganache and rich plum fruit. Silky tannins line the dark, cream-tinged finish.” 92 Points and Top 100 WS

Amplus Cabernet 2012       ($21.99 During Tasting)

  • Deep, intense red in color, this Cabernet Sauvignon has complex and intense aromas of dark fruit that are complemented by a touch of dark chocolate. On the palate, this Cabernet is mouth-filling and highly concentrated with firm, ripe tannins and persistent fruit on the finish!

Montes Alpha Carmenere 2012     ($19.99 During Tasting)

  • “Here’s and honest, lively take on carmenere, without the herbal scents that often mark the variety. Pure ripe red fruit, with soft touches of spice, waits to be uncorked with a plate of charcuterie.” 91 Points W&S

Norton Privada 2012     ($24.99 During Tasting)

  • “A pure-tasting red, with concentrated dark plum, kirsch, mineral and dark chocoalte flavors that glide over the palate. Long adn lush, presenting a core of sweet spice and creamy notes that fill the rich and powerful finish.”

See you this weekend!
