In a lineup that takes us to all four cardinal points of the compass, we will be jetting around the world to sample wines from the East, West, South and North… We are featuring a quartet of fantastic wines that represent stellar values from major winemaking regions all around the world. Starting in Sunny California, with a delicious Cabernet, we jet to South America for a substantive Malbec based Bordeaux blend from Argentina. From there we will hop over the pond, first to Iberia, where we will check out a red blend from Montsant in the NE of Spain and then to the northernmost and easternmost reaches of winemaking in Europe proper, Germany, where we will experience a delightful Riesling from legendary JJ Prum.
Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon ($16.99): In the glass, the wine exudes aromas of plum, black currants, blackberry, smoke, and earth. Soft tannins and bright acidity add a sense of balance and substance to this full-bodied Cabernet. Concentrated flavors of juicy raspberries and black cherries dominate the entry, while refined notes of earth and pepper emerge as the wine unfolds on the palate.
Clos de Los Siete ($19.99): The brainchild of Michel Rolland, world-famous Bordeaux oenologist and consultant, working with several other producers from Argentina and abroad, this Uco Valley, Malbec driven, Bordeaux style blend represents a lot of wine for the money. Deep, extracted and beautifully complex, while maintaining a suave elegance.
Cellars Can Blau Monsant ($17.99): Dark purple. Ripe black and blue fruits on the nose and in the mouth, with suave Asian spice and violet pastille notes adding complexity. Chewy and focused, with zesty acidity adding lift and spine and a hint of white pepper lending bite.
