Friday’s eclectic, yet user-friendly line-up incorporates four great wines for your weekend, from around the world. Food and budget friendly, these great wines are meant to be enjoyed with friends and family, whether over a meal or by themselves.
These four stunning wines come from both the Old World (France and Italy) as well as the New World (New Zealand and Argentina), and showcase terroir, diversity, freshness and fun in a bottle. The one thing they do share in common is their amazing value.
But don’t take our word for it, come visit us on Friday and try for yourself!
Mussel Bay Sauvignon Blanc ($13.99): 90 Points from Wine & Spirits Magazine! Not bad for an “Under $15” Selection. An intensely pungent gooseberry and asparagus nose, with hints of freshly torn basil leaves. Clean crisp, refreshing palate with ripe tropical fruits and a well balanced acidity. This might become one of your favorites.
Mendoza Vineyards Malbec ($21.99): Charred, smoky, herbal aromas of blackberry trend in the direction of exotic before showing barrel-driven scents of vanilla and clove. On the palate, this zaftig wine exhibits plenty of depth and sponginess along with toasty, herbal flavors of plum and blackberry. Pepper, burnt toast, clove and blueberry flavors carry the finish on this hefty MalbecMolino del Piano Brunello ($36.99): Arguably, this evening’s main attraction, this mid-weight Brunello from an exquisite, ripe vintage starts with a pretty fragrance of wild berries, violet and baking spices. The juicy, full-formed palate delivers opulent red cherry and blackberry accented with sophisticated notes of mint and white pepper alongside supple, lengthy tannins. It’s rather simple for the region and style but at the same time, extremely enjoyable, and a great value. Pairs nicely with grilled or stewed meat or a rich pasta dish.
