Wine of the Week
This premiere vintage of Summation, is a white wine blend and mingles refreshing flavors of honeydew melon,
apricot, pink grapefruit and white pepper. Added hints of honeysuckle and a creamy mouthfeel result in a soft, dry wine that is excellent for food pairing or simply sipping. This tremendous bottle will run you about $14.
Aromas of strawberries, cherries and cranberries develop nicely into mature Pinot Noir fruit characters.
These ripe red fruit flavors include a hint of oak. The silky dried cranberry finish lingers seductively. This wine will run you about $18.
This is a great time for blends.
This is Cabernet Sauvignon-based and made in the same style as Bordeaux's finest wines. A blend of the classic Bordeaux varietals - Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc - Francis Coppola 2005 Claret is supple and rich with smooth tannins, ripe berry flavors, and seductive aromas. It will run you about $17.
With its rich varietal flavors, this is a great summer wine.
This wine delivers on the palate what it promises in the nose --- a generous mouthful of dark cherry and a touch of spicy plum. With a graceful marriage of fruit and oak, this powerful Cabernet glides smoothly along to an elegant finish. Will run you a little more at $42, but completely worth it- it is all you would want in a Cabernet.
For those who are into the pink grapefruit of New Zealand, this is the one.
Almost clear in color with green hues. The nose is typical Sauvignon; vibrant, citrus and tropical fruit. The palate is generous in its intensity, soft and round. Will run you about $13.
