El Coto Blanco Rioja- Reg $ 11.99 10% discount at tasting
At the beginning of 1945, Julio Ramírez de la Piscina, followed the tradition inherited from his parents in Ábalos, and continued to cultivate the family vineyards in San Vicente de la Sonsierra and began to produce traditional Rioja wines. In 1961 Julio moved to Bilbao with his wife Angela and began selling his wine in the old Bodeguilla Riojana in the Plaza del Corazón de María. In 1973 Bodegas Ramírez was officially founded and started selling bottled wine under this name. In 1980, the fourth generation of the Ramírez de la Piscina family took over the management of the winery, and in 1987 the name was changed to Bodegas Ramírez de la Piscina. The name change pays homage to the family’s historic surname, which is an ancient medieval aristocratic name for Rioja, originating from a 12th-century Romanesque church near the vineyards, called Santa María de la Piscina. All the vineyards belong to the estate and the vast majority of the plantations are Tempranillo on high density trellises. The oldest vineyards in Tempranillo are chief trained and the family owns a few small plants of Garnacha, Viura and Malvasia, which are used for Rosado and Blanco. Ramirez de la Piscina defends the tradition of classified aging, traditional Rioja style.
Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand – Reg $ 29.99 10% Discount during tasting
Founded in 1985, Cloudy Bay was one of the first five wineries to establish in New Zealand. Since then, innovation, meticulous attention to detail and regional expression have been the guiding principles of Cloudy Bay, which is committed to producing wines that enhance the pure flavors and astonishing vibrancy naturally offered by the climate and Marlborough soils.
Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc has succeeded in drawing New Zealand to the wine list and establishing the Marlborough wine region on a global scale. This iconic wine is fresh, vibrant and aromatic.
Saint Cosme Côtes Du Rhône, France – Reg $ 17.99 10% off at tasting
Be careful, this is a stellar vintage, the greatest since the extraordinary 2010. Of course, 2016 is also great, and even 2015, which in Saint Cosme was memorable. But there is a freshness, an intensity, an evanescence, something indefinable that is charming and vibrant in the 2019s. A wine with a substantial structure, it also abounds in fruit and shows great concentration counterbalanced by the most beautiful freshness. . Unique for the southern Rhône, it is 100% Syrah with a lot of depth for a modest price. It is a classic Syrah du Rhône with aromas of violet, olive and black fruits and a lot of complexity. Delicious in itself and will complement a wide range of foods.
Scents of violet and sandalwood with revealing garrigue superimposed on the typical aromas of black pepper, black olive and black Syrah berries. The palate is medium bodied with supple tannins and a little more hints of blueberry and blackberry. The finish is surprisingly long and rewarding. It’s as good as Syrah gets under $ 20! Fantastic value!
Pair it with Moroccan chicken tagine to complete the spice!
Murphy Goode Cabernet, California – Reg $ 13.99 10% off during tasting
This deep ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Murphy Goode opens with lovely aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, red plum, cedar, black pepper and vanilla with a hint of warmth on the nose. On the palate, it is medium bodied with a dry but silky mouth feel. The flavor profile is a blend of juicy red and dark berries with hints of red cherry and blueberry. It is a tasty drink that will appeal to everyone.
