xamswine.141031Happy Holiday’s from Carpe Vino!  Christmas is only a few days away, and CV has some amazing palate pleasing wines, ready for tasting!  The word is out on these Saturday tastings, so Arrive Early!  Our complimentary wine tasting ends promptly at 4pm.  (Please remember two person maximum per wine club membership.) By now you all know the drill on all the discounts, so here is what we will be pouring…

  Laurent-Perrier Brut Rose Champagne NV (France)

champagne-rose-laurent-perrier_800-800$69.99 or $59.95/bottle on 6+

Winery Tasting Notes: “Fruit dominates the palate. Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier is a lively, well-rounded wine which combines structure and freshness. The forthright, slightly sharp attack is like breathing the heady aromas of a freshly-picked basket of berry fruits – a symphony of aromas with a gently-rounded, tender finish.”

Jay’s Take: “If Champagne is what you are looking for, then look no further!  Here is your chance to taste some amazing bubbly that will rival any in the world!”


Kazmer & Blaise “Boon Fly’s Hill” Chardonnay 2009 (Carneros)

$49.50/Bottle or $35/Bottle on 6+

kazmer.142858“Wine Advocate” Tasting Notes: 92 Points!!!  “The 2009 Chardonnay Boon fly is soft, supple and totally beautiful. The Hungarian oak barrels add hints of spiciness and volume to the wine, yet this remains a medium-bodied, refined Chardonnay loaded with class and sheer pedigree. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.”

“Wine Spectator” Tasting Notes:  90 Points!!!  “Offering a fruit bowl of aromas and flavors, this is ripe, intense, pure and focused, picking up a cedar-hazelnut-nutmeg touch on the finish that ends with an intriguing anise twist. Drink now through 2018.”

Jay’s Take: Another fantastic chardonnay added to our Saturday line-up!  92 Points Wine Advocate, 90 Wine Spectator, and a discount of almost 30%!  (WE CANNOT DISCLOSE THIS DISCOUNT ONLINE)




Tangles Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 (Napa Valley)

tangles.143411$49/Bottle or $25/Bottle on 6+

Carpe Vino Tasting Notes:  “If you are into aromatherapy, open a bottle of this juice for a blast to remember. Distinctly raspberry on the nose with violets and a hint of spice. Big flavors of blueberry pie, burnt chocolate with soft, sensible tannins. Be sure you are seated comfortably, because this wine has one stubborn finish. . .it hangs in forever. Carpe Vino has been behind he Tangles brand since Day One, and we’re fortunate to have the kind of relationship that results in being able to acquire this wonderful wine. Heather’s ’07 cab is heading into its seventh year, and it is ready to relish right now. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity.”

Jay’s Take:  “Only 200 cases were made of this beaut, and at this discount, this baby is flying out the door.  So, don’t wait too long before it’s gone!”



Seghesio “Sonoma County” Zinfandel 2011 (Sonoma County)

seghesio.144811$22.50/bottle or $17.99/bottle on 6+

Winery Tasting Notes:  “Seghesio Family Vineyards roots are firmly planted in Zinfandel, as our founder, Edoardo Seghesio, first planted this historic varietal on our Alexander Valley Home Ranch in 1895. Today, we share his passion as we farm estate Zinfandel in Alexander and Dry Creek valleys. This wine combines sites that have produced Zinfandel for over a century with newer sites that utilize proprietary clones and the most advanced viticultural practices.”

Jay’s Take: “We know this wine is anywhere, but for an everyday Zin, you cannot beat Seghesio!”
