Wine Club Member Tasting for Saturday 6/2

Today we have a value driven line-up of wines that are worthy of a six-pack or two (or more) for whatever your summer party needs may be. Memorial Day is in the rearview mirror, but Father’s Day, countless graduations, weddings and anniversaries are just around the corner. This line-up has you covered, from a classic Napa sparkler for nearly 30% off, a LITER of ROSE (that’s right Farva, a liter), a zin-based blend for under 12 BUCKS and a Cab from one of the best producers in Napa…Greg La Follette!

Today’s tasting will be hosted by Ms. Vicki Revak from 1-4pm in the Carpe Vino Wine Bar and is gratis to all Wine Club members. Here is a sneak peek of the wines we will be tasting:


sNT5l-CnRvmiltPOEwr6bQ_pl_375x500.090318Domaine Carneros Brut Rose NV (Carneros, Ca)

$42/bottle or $29.95/bottle on 6+

Winery Tasting Notes:

“On the nose, heady aromas of peaches and cream, red currants, lime blossoms and white flowers beckon the first sip. Silky flavors of wild strawberries, roses and nectarines evoke the bliss of a perfect summer day through the long, lovely finish.”





forty_40_ounce_rose_2017_1l.090615FORTY OUNCE Rose (France) 1 Liter

$19.95/bottle or $15.95/bottle on 6+

Tasting Notes: 53% Gamay, 33% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc & 4% Pineau d’Aunis – Grapes from Muscadet and Touraine

“The Washington Post” says: “Forty Ounce Rose, a French rose from the Loire Valley, set the Internet on fire this spring, thanks to its distinctive packaging: Screw-top bottles that resemble those more often filled with malt liquor. It was originally only released in five states: New York, California, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Colorado, adding to its cachet.

Behind the gimmicky, Instagram-ready bottle, though, is some serious cred: Forty Ounce Wines was founded by New York sommelier Patrick Cappiello, the wine director at Rebelle and Walnut Street Cafe, who’s been named “Sommelier of the Year” by Food & Wine and Eater National. In France, the winemaking is handled by Julien Braud, who’s known for working with organic wine.

Incidentally, it’s really delicious, too.”





1306271x.090953NV Marietta “OVR” Lot 67 (Sonoma/Mendocino)

$14.99/bottle or $11.99/bottle on 6+

Winery Tasting Notes:

“Marietta’s flagship NV Old Vine Red Lot Number 66 is a gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next few years, while the plummy red fruit and floral notes retain their freshness. Bright red cherry, plum, rose petal, mint and sweet pipe tobacco give this fresh, vinous red much of its inviting personality.”







Vin2-152x362.105156Vindicated Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 (Napa Valley, CA)

$24.95/bottle or $19.95/bottle on 6+

Winery Tasting Notes:

“Great varietal presence greets you with aromas of cassis and briary berry that is perfectly framed by lacy French oak vanilla with a touch of dustiness. In the mouth, the wine shows firmness and balance with bold berry fruit and finely matched acidity, leading to a long finish. This wine will age beautifully for the next several years, but why wait?”
