This week we have two W.O.W.s, a luscious Italian white and a juicy French red. Each one is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, before and with your Easter dinner. Both are quality wines and great values.
For April we have not one but TWO Wine of the Month selections. Both wines are perfect for your Easter dining or can be enjoyed without food and just good…
90 Points, Wine & Spirits: "A refreshing Malbec from the heights of the Andes in the Uco Valley, this captures all the characteristics of high-altitude mountain Malbec – the acidity and brightness of Malbec's red fruit and violet aromas." There’s a lot of wine here for the money. It’s loaded with aromas and flavors of black cherry, dark berry fruit and spice with notes of vanilla, caramel and chocolate. Pair up with grilled red meats and hard cheeses like Manchego.
This week's WOW is a highly-rated, organically grown, premium Tuscan red wine made from estate harvested Sangiovese and Syrah grapes. After hand-picking, the grapes are sorted and crushed and no oak is used on this fresh and juicy gem. There are no shortcuts taken in production... even the bottling and labeling materials are bio-safe!
This week’s WOW is, 2013 Château de Paraza, a highly-rated red wine from Minervois in France’s sun-drenched Languedoc-Roussillon region. The area is known for producing fruit-driven wines of great value and this delicious blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre certainly fits the bill.
"It is a deep and intense ruby red wine, fruity with black cherries and small red fruit with notes of tobacco and chocolate. A full-bodied wine that pairs well with stew and grilled meat. Excellent pairing for pasta dishes served with meat sauces." Winemaker's Notes
This week’s W.O.W. is a highly rated, 50/50 blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Sustainably farmed, irrigated from natural springs, hand harvested and aged in French oak… it’s hard to believe that there’s a wine of this quality at this price!
A Worthy Sale!! For the month of March we decided to feature an old friend! Worthy, Sophia’s Cuvee has always been a staff and customer favorite and for a good reason. Year after year Worthy has over delivered, giving us high quality Napa Valley Cabernet dominated blends in a price point under $30.
