Tomorrows CVWC Tasting runs from 1 P.M. – 4 P.M. so carve out some time and we’ll see you then. Here is the line-up: (please remember two-person maximum per wine club membership, no guests).
Steorra Brut Sparkling Wine NV (Russian River, Valley)
$19.95/bottle or $14.95/bottle on 6+
Winery Tasting Notes: “Non-vintage Pinot Noir Chardonnay Brut style sparkling from the Russian River Valley made in an elegant soft style with a fine bead and flavors of lemon sherbet, luscious cream, subtle toastiness and a fresh finish.”
$29.95/bottle or $19.95/bottle on 6+
Winery Tasting Notes: “The 2014 Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnays is fresh, lively, effusive and imminently drinkable. As with previous vintages, the nose conveys a melange of citrus, apple, tropical fruit and a dash of vanilla. The palate is generous without being heavy or overbearing. The finish suggests a nifty blend of power and finesse.”
$33.50/bottle or $25.50/bottle on 6+
Winery Tasting Notes: Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc, 18% Petit Verdot, 12% Malbec, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Zinfandel “The 2014 Andronicus Red Wine has aromas of plum, dried cherries, dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla. These attributes follow through on the palate and integrate darker fruit tones including blackberry tart, cassis, baking spices and espresso. This wine is smooth and rich with a refreshing acidity making it ideal to be enjoyed now or for the next few years.”
$34.95/bottle or $23.95/bottle on 6+
Winery Tasting Notes: “Inviting and approachable, this wines bouquet prepares the palate with aromas of cherry jubilee, coco-dusted red berries, and subtle hints of spice. Red fruit driven, the supple entry teases with bright notes of fresh cherry and licorice immediately lead into darker, fleshier notes. This full-bodied Cabernet shows a beautiful balance of fruit, acid, spice, and tannin. Earthy notes of forest floor, dark chocolate, and sage linger for a full, yet remarkably soft finish.”
“Wine Spectator” Tasting Notes: 90 Points
“A striking example of a balanced wine, featuring ripe, juicy dark berry, spice, herb and dusty oak, with firm yet tender tannins that let the flavors glide happily along. Drink now through 2028.”
