April 2019 Wine Club Wines

Chateau Gassier – Rose – France > Provence. This dry Rose is made from Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Vermentino. It has an intense nose with aromas of peach and white flowers. Spicy notes along with scents of clementine make this a refreshing invitation to Spring.

Flora Springs – Merlot – California > Napa Valley. Aromas of cherry, pomegranate and raspberry with hints of espresso bean, cocoa and mint. An unbelievably warm, lush finish.

Muriel – Rioja Reserva – Spain > Rioja. 100% Tempranillo shows complex and intense aromas with hints of vanilla, spices and herbs. Dry as a bone – it begs for some cheese or a juicy steak. Very ripe fruit with a long, pleasant finish.
