Come taste some great wines for the holidays!
Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Sainte Claire – A crisp fruity wine that is lively with acidity, lemon and apple fruits, and a light tangy texture. The wine becomes more ripe as it opens up showing peach and apricot flavors at the end. Try with smooth vegetable soups, seafood, risottos, or goat cheeses. Great with sushi and sashimi. 90 points, Wine Spectator.
Jeeper Grande Reserve Champagne – Mineral and floral aromas. Silky-smooth, lively and fruity in the mouth, with citrus notes. A powerful start and a long finish. An extremely refined champagne, this is a blend of 11 of the finest Chardonnay vineyards in Montagne de Reims, the Côte des Blancs and Vitryat country. This makes a perfect aperitif, but is also strong enough to pair with fish and white meat. 94 points, Suckling.com
Westerly Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills – Deep ruby-purple colored, with subtle aromas of ripe raspberries and crushed red cherries with underlying notes of violets, lavender, and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied with satisfying berry and spice flavor layers that linger long into the finish. Drink now through 2020. – 92 points Wine Enthusiast
Westerly Cabernet Sauvignon – Aromas of Asian plum, raspberry, Bing cherry and hints of wild thyme. Medium to full-bodied, tight-knit and very fine in the mouth, with broad, polished tannins and bright notes. This classically structured wine that drinks well now, but will continue to positively evolve for several years..
Bruno Marino Artisan Vermouth – Spanish vermouth made with high quality fortified wine macerated for nine months with a secret mix of herbs. A delightful aperitif and the ideal vermouth for a wide variety cocktails.
