Tasting Info
After prompting by customers last week, we are trying something new with our Friday night tastings. We will be featuring two value wines and two $20 bottles each week. This week’s values come from McManis Vineyard- Viognier and Petite Syrah. The $20 bottles are from Acustic Celler in Spain- red & white blends. Let us know what you think of the new ideas and wines!

This week’s beer tasting is just “a little crazy.” We will taste 3 ales- a can from Revolution, a pale ale, a brown ale and also a pre-Prohibition style lager from Coors. Come get “a little crazy” with us!

As always for the complete list, please click here.

Feature Item
This week’s feature items are two new wines from Acrobat, King Estates in Oregon- the Pinot Gris and Rose of Pinot Noir- both $12.99 a bottle. The 2011 Pinot Gris is crisp with a hint of sweetness. It is straw colored with aromas of citrus fruits and honeysuckle leading to fresh fruit flavors of honeydew, green apple and a hint of spice. This would pair wonderfully with seafood, light pastas or on its own as a “porch sitter.” The 2011 Rose of Pinot Noir is unlike any Rose you have tried. It has a crisp acidity, aroma of lime zest, red fruit flavors and a lingering apple finish. This wine would pair best with mild fish, light appetizers or tapas. Come try these two refreshing wines that are sure to refresh your mood!

Dan’s Pick
While he apologizes for being a “Francophile,” Dan’s pick again this week is a Rhone red blend from France- Bastide de Beauvert. This is a 2010 vintage, 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. It is described as a table wine or everyday drink and priced accordingly at $9.99 a bottle. Dan insists that anytime he can get a great vintage of a great Rhone at a great price, he will do it. It is just that good- too good to pass up!

We look forward to seeing everyone Friday night! We are keeping our fingers crossed for an “all in the name of good fun & charity” bidding war! Thank you again for supporting us and buying local!

Cheers!
