Summer Grooves Tasting
How cold is too cold? Will the wine police show up if I put an ice cube in my glass? Why won’t the fridge hurry up and cool down that bottle?
With chilling season on the way – you know, hangin’ by the pool, glass of vino in hand, maybe a little grill action unfolding nearby – questions do arise.
Of course, our first rule on pretty much anything to do with wine is that it’s a free country and you are welcome to do whatever works for you!
Whether it’s a laid-back time with the gang or prepping for a night out, these fantastic wines will create the perfect ambience for your summer chill.

Summer Grooves Tasting
Cachette Rose ($9.99 During Tasting)
- Aromas of just picked raspberries, strawberries and peaches dominate the nose while the palate shows density and concentration of fruit dominated by red berries and sweet spices. The wine is light and refreshing and has a balanced minerality with a floral and fruity finish.
Carmenet Chardonnay ($8.99 During Tasting)
- A lovely straw-colored wine with hints of apple, banana, and vanilla. This opulent and sensual wine finishes with butterscotch and tropical fruit and ends with a smooth, crisp, enjoyable finish. Perhaps our best selling Chardonnay ever, we’ll sample the just released 2014 vintage.
Veraton ($39.99 During Tasting)
- “This is a powerful, full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal red boasting a dense purple color, and a sweet blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, lavender, licorice and earth notes intermixed with a touch of new oak. Stylistically, this is a modern, massively intense, rich wine that over-delivers in many ways. “ SOLD OUT! Limited to stock on hand. 93 Points Robert Parker
Clos Apalta ($67.99 During Tasting)
- “Ripe and packed, especially for the vintage, with gorgeous blackberry, blueberry and fig fruit flavors liberally laced with bittersweet cocoa and Turkish coffee notes. Muscular but rounded, with briar and mineral notes buried deep on the fleshy finish. An impressive combination of density and purity. Carmenère, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.” 94 Points Wine Spectator
Bertrand Syrah / Grenache ($15.99 During Tasting)
- “A ripe aroma leads to rich, concentrated dark plum, kirsch and dried blueberry flavors, with a succulent spiciness. The finish shows touches of smoke, alongside notes of chocolate.” 90 Points Wine Spectator – Smart Buy!
We hope to see you out this weekend!
