Event selections: $20.00

Coquille Blanc 2011   ($18.99 During Tasting)

  • Multi-dimensional (many layers), a hard-to-describe range of aromatics, intriguing, almost mysterious! In the mouth it is crisply dry yet creamy and round and full-bodied, nice almond paste on crisp-yet-juicy pear fruit.

Carneros Pinot Noir 2011       ($34.99 During Tasting)

  • Rich black cherry fruit, nice black pepper spice and touch of earth.  Firm tannins cloaked in velvety plush silkiness, nice spicy finish.  More fruit than a lot of Pinot Noirs—a Zin-lover’s Pinot!

Wild Thing Zin 2010   ($21.99 During Tasting)

  • Aromas of black cherry, plum and raspberry fruit combine with a beautiful hint of vanilla-oak loveliness, smoothly textured in mouth, very creamy and round, the finish is long and has lush jammy fruit — this wine is dangerously good!

Monga Zin 2010     ($21.99 During Tasting)

  • Very bright pomegranate cherry fruit, brown sugary-caramel oak.  Fragrant Asian spices—Chinese 5-spice in milk chocolate/cocoa; Mouthfeel is still a bit young and chewy, but quite drinkable now. 91 Points Wine Spectator.

Karma Zin 2009     ($21.99 During Tasting)

  • Very complexly layered spice and black fruits, lively!  Dark chocolate, Creamy oak, a bit of vanilla cola, brown spices-nutmeg/cinnamon.  Rich in mouth, good structure for aging, a bit chewy in its youth.

Black Magic Late Harvest    ($18.99 During Tasting)

  • Inky blue-purple in color, yummy deep razz-blackberry jam and luscious dark chocolate of oak spices, sweet but not clumsy, pleasingly balanced with a bit a tartness, not at all hotly alcoholic, bit of warm vanilla at finish.French and 20% American oak, all new, used to age his wines, which are now justly celebrated throughout the world.  Previous vintage received 93 pts.

Hope to see you all Thursday!
