Sunday Six Pack
This week’s pack includes:
- 2019 iLauri ‘Tavo’ Pinot Grigio— Fresh, bright, and crisp. This isn’t your grandmother’s Pinot Grigio! Gentle acidity and delicate flavors of golden apples, pear, and lemon will have you coming back for more.
- 2019 Les Jamelles Viognier – A richly flavored Viognier from the south of France. Fragrant aromas of lavender and lemon verbena make way for round flavors of apricot, oranges, and peaches, all leading into a mouthwatering finish. Perfect for vegetarian or Asian cuisine, or just to sip on its own!
- 2019 J.Lohr Wildflower Valdiguié – Mischaracterized for decades as ‘Napa Gamay,’ Valdiguié is a red grape primarily grown in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France. Much like Beaujolais, it is a fresh and light-bodied red with brambly fruit aromas and juicy notes of boysenberry, pomegranate, and blueberry. Perfect for everyday sipping!
- 2018 Talamonti ‘MODA’ Montepulciano – Believe it or not, this was one of the very first wines we brought into the store (#2 to be exact!), and it remains one of our favorite go-to bottles today. Medium-bodied and easy-drinking, with bright acidity, juicy flavors of cherry and plum, and vanilla undertones.
- 2018 Remhoogte ‘Soaring Eagle’ Red – Remhoogte (pronounced rem-HOOK-tah) is a small family-run South African estate loved for their world-class selections. Their 2018 Soaring Eagle is a Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz blend, with red raspberry, vanilla, and spice flavors leading into an earthy yet supple finish.
- 2018 Avarizza Malbec – Looking for an alternative to a higher priced Cab Sauv or even Syrah? Look no further than this Malbec! Avarizza is plump and lush, brimming with plenty of red cherry and raspberry flavors layered with smoky and peppery undertones. This wine is guaranteed to please any red lover!
