OLD WORLD WINES FOR A NEW SEASON

May 6, 2017

OLD WORLD WINES FOR A NEW SEASON

From the hillsides and valleys of Europe comes this unique collection of wonderful, seasonally appropriate Old World wines that are sure to get your wine brain going and your palate salivating.

This lineup (wine-up?) has it all – from a fresh and crisp Southern French rose to a delicious, complex and full bodied ‘Super Tuscan’.

Friendly, sensible for almost any budget and full of the character, vivacity and time-honored technique that are the hallmarks of good wine making, this wonderful flight should offer you the opportunity to taste a few wines that just might become part of your regular repertoire.

Cote Mas Aurore Rose ($11.99): A full liter of rose goodness, ready to drink and perfectly made from a traditional blend of Cinsault, Syrah and Grenache. This rose is a genuine crowd-pleaser and an incredible value as a larger format. Notes of strawberries and cherries are balanced by a juicy palate and bright acidity.

Trimbach Riesling ($15.99): Since 1626 with 12 generations of experience, Trimbach has become synonymous with great dry, Alsatian Riesling. With copious aromas of ginger, baking spices, white flowers, and a sleek, bright palate of stone and tropical fruits, this benchmark white is multidimensional and pairs easily with a variety of fishes and light poultry.

Il Fauno Di Arcanum ($32.99): A blend of primarily Cabernet Franc and Merlot, this exceptional “Super-Tuscan” is drinking beautifully with immediately noticeable Bordeaux-esque aromas of plum, cassis, and emerging graphite and cedar notes.  A lush palate of red and black fruit, leather and a silky finish complete the show. A bargain for a 10+ year-old wine from a great wine-growing region.

Paul Mas Clos De Mures ($19.99): Inky and opaque with a heady profusion of aromas including plum, violet and boysenberry. Structured and generous on a palate painted in broad strokes of ripe dark fruit chased with garrigues and a hint of sandalwood. A lingering finish of supple tannins completes this tour de force.
