We’ve Conjured Up A List of Great Wines This Week for Our Tasting!
Friday, October 28th
5:30 – 7:30
No clowns please.
With the help of Ian from Vintage Wines, we’ve devised a wicked good wine list for this Friday! Plus, as an added Thriller, we’ll be sampling our new Vodka Infused Whipped Creams and Infused Olive Oils again—in case you missed the last tasting.
Fantini Pinot Grigio
From Molize, Italy, just a 20 hour drive from Dracula’s Castle in Romania (or 4 hours as the bats fly), this dazzling Pinot Grigio has enticing fruit and fresh herb aromas, and a scintillating taste of rich peach and grapefruit. Lemon, lime and a mineral crispness combine with a gentle spicy finish.
This spell-binding Chardonnay is brewed using a blend of Chardonnay grapes from four vineyards on the Sonoma Coast. Each vineyard brings its own delicious layer to the blend—you know, eye-of-newt, blind worm’s sting and all that good stuff. 90 pts. in Wine Enthusiast.
Ravenswood Besieged Red Blend
A perfect wine for the All Hallow’s Eve celebration, this red blend has dark, rich, full flavors that ignite your senses with blackberry, black cherry, and baking spices. Quoth the Raven “You’ll want several bottles of this delicious, smooth and satisfying wine in your cellar.” Blend of Petite Sirah, Carignane, Zinfandel, Syrah, Alicante Bouschet, Barbera
The grapes in these vineyards are protected by frightening predators—thus, the name! Well, that’s if you’re afraid of Ladybugs. Predator Zinfandel is sourced from 50+year old vines that produce rich and intensely flavored fruit. The resulting wine is big and bold with hallmark “old vine” velvety texture, spice and vibrant varietal flavors. Ladybugs are used as a source of “Natural Predation” to keep harmful insects from damaging the fruit. Don’t be afraid, the bottle’s not even scary looking.
And for an extra treat…
Liquor Whipped Vodka Infused Whipped Cream
Don’t miss trying these awesome caramel and chocolate flavored whipped creams infused with Vodka! Great fun for desserts, specialty mixed drinks, or out of the can, you’ll definitely want some of this around for your Holiday parties!
