El Cajon Wine Tasting Selections for July 5th, 2013

One of our favorite holidays is Independence Day, when we celebrate our country, our families, and good times.  Our Friday wine tasting this week falls right in the middle of a long weekend of fun and, most likely, a lot of grilling and parties. So, what could be better than some fantastic barbecue wines – wines that not only pair well with grilled foods, but are so mouth-wateringly delicious that everyone loves them.  Oh, and the price is not bad, either!

This weeks selections:

Poppy Chardonnay  2011 (Regularly $11.99) $9.99 At Tasting

  • Sourced entirely from the winery’s estate vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands, Poppy has that distinct California style of bright acidity, toasty oak spice, and a creamy, buttery texture. The wine is ideal for unwinding at the end of a long day, or with richer poultry and fish dishes.

Murphy-Goode Dealer’s Choice Cabernet (Regularly $21.99) 18.99 At Tasting

  • This Alexander Valley wine shows a dense, rich flavor of cherry and toasty, vanilla spice, with notes of blackberry and thyme.

Laya Spanish Blend  2011 (Regularly $9.99) $7.99 At Tasting

  • Creamy, with lifted dark plum scents. The palate is medium-bodied with good acidity, the 2011 is elegant and refined, blessed with fine tannins and tension towards the dark plum and boysenberry finish. *89 Points Wine Advocate

Four Vines Biker Zin  2010 (Regularly $23.99) $20.99 At Tasting

  • “Ripe and zesty, with distinctive aromas of raspberry and smoky cracked pepper that lead to plush, briary flavors of black cherry, anise and sage.”  A massive, in-your-face Zin! *90 Points Wine Spectator

  T~Vine Syrah  2008 (Regularly $39.99) $32.99 At Tasting

  • Deep and intense, with complex fruit; the power and concentration of the explosion of blackberries, leather, licorice, and chocolate in your mouth is unimaginable.  A perfect pairing for grilled baby back ribs!

See you all at the tasting!
