The Portfolio Wine Tasting Event

Tasting Dates:

Friday, September 30th, 2016 – 5pm to 7pm

Tasting Cost: $25


Here are the wines we have selected to share with you.

  • ARTERBERRY MARESH PINOT NOIR - $64.99    “A beautiful bouquet with wonderful precision. The vine age does show through here (44-years-old now) with crisp detailed red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very well-judged acidity, touches of truffle and undergrowth tincturing the red berry fruit that fans out wonderfully towards the long and satisfying finish. This is a great Pinot Noir.” 95 Pts Parker
  • KIONA CABERNET - $21.99    Offers terrific notes of black currants, plums, wild herbs, tobacco leaf and smoke to go with a medium to full-bodied, ripe, forward, textured profile on the palate. 90 Pts Parker
  • IF SIX WAS NINE CABERNET - $49.99    The opaque ruby/purple-hued 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon If Six Was Nine possesses exceptional crème de cassis and blueberry fruit, and a full-bodied mouthfeel. This stunning effort sells for a realistic price in the scheme of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon pricing. 94 Pts Parker
  • SINISTER HAND - $26.99    This Rhone styled blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault, is a crowd favorite and we think you will be just as pleased.  The nose is a enticing combination of blueberries, iron, and rhubarb pie. Blackberries take over on the finish which has just the right touch of grip.
  • GRAMERCY CELLARS SYRAH - $41.99   ”Named after a French/Cajun term meaning roughly “a little something extra”, the 2013 Syrah Lagniappe is a stunning wine that has classic Syrah notes of sappy herbs, spring flowers, pepper and ample darker fruits. Tight, focused, medium to full-bodied and elegantquality level.” 95 Pts Parker
