Le Grand Courtage – Sparkling Brut Rose – France > Burgundy. A big BIG hit. Perfect bubbly refresher for this humid weather. Bright flavors of fresh strawberries and raspberry with a delicate balance of dryness and acidity.
Mottura – Primitivo Del Salento – Italy > Puglia. Deep ruby red color with aromas of ripe red fruit, cherry, blueberry, vanilla and aromatic herbs. Long finish with enjoyable tannins.
Gundlach Bundschu – Mountain Cuvee – California > Sonoma. Bordeaux style blend of Cab, Merlot, Malbec and Cab Franc. The silky texture showcases layers of lush cassis and red fruit with savory cocoa powder on the finish.
