January 2021 Wine Club WineS

Welcome to all the new Wine Club members who’ve joined us over the holidays. Your wines are ready for pickup anytime.

We’re kicking off our 11th year of Wine Club – so it’s a great time to join and try new wines from all over the world!

Biscaye Baie – Sauvignon Blanc – France > Cotes de Gascogne. Nose of white flowers, white peaches, pineapple, pear and citrus fruits. Fresh and crisp with a nice long finish. Enjoy this one with seafood dishes, creamy pasta or cheese.

Enrique Foster – Ique Malbec – Argentina > Mendoza. Reminiscent of fresh cherry and dark plum with a subtle touch of oak and spice. Young and fruity with balanced acidity. Excellent with chocolate!

Santa Rita – Medalla Real Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon – Chile > Maipo Valley. Rich nose full of blueberries, blackberries, dried figs and some soft spice notes. Rounded ripe tannins lead the wine into a creamy, dark fruit finish.

January’s “If You Insist” Wine Club:

2016 Lassegue – Saint Emilion Grand Cru

France > Bordeaux

Opulent and rich Cabernet Franc with an addition of dense Merlot and a touch of Cab.

Richly oaked and full-bodied it has an elegance with a long line of black-currant flavor.

Drink now or let it gain more complexity with some time.
