Wine Club – August 2015

Primary Red Wine

Graffito 2013 Malbec

  •  Argentina
  • Grapes: Malbec
  • Alcohol: 14.4%

The palate balances red currant fruit and hints of black pepper with loads of mouth-coating ripe tannins that are common in old vine Malbecs. Finishes with smooth, lush tannins, ripe acidity and good length. The ultimate steak wine.

Primary White Wine

Rocca delle Macie 2013 Toscana

  • Italy > Tuscany
  • Grapes: Pinot Grigio 20%, Chardonnay 35%, Vermintino 30%
  • Alcohol: 12.5%

A straw-yellow color with intense aromas of white flowers with hints of flint.  On the palate you’ll get fresh mineral notes that blend perfectly with citrus notes.  Goes great with seafood dishes soft cheeses and white meats.

Secondary Red Wine

Errazuriz 2012 Pinot Noir

  • Chile
  • Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir
  • Alcohol: 13.5%

Aromas of red berries with light balsamic notes, rosemary, and a soft touch of damp earth and mushrooms. Medium bodied.  The  palate mimics the nose plus adds in some notes of dried fruits and toasted bread.
