It’s official, The Noble Grape has too much wine! There is an overabundance of loose, single bottles floating around, and we don’t know what to do! Desperate times call for desperate measures. Therefore, starting tomorrow all single bottles by the register will be marked 10-15% off. Furthermore, all single bottles of white wine in the back refrigerators will also be 10-15% off! Our loss is your gain, and by selling these stragglers we will be able to bring in exciting, new wines for your tasting pleasure! So really, it’s a win win...   

This Wednesday, Brian from Compass Wine and Spirits will be pouring several of his favorite wines including La Galope Sauvignon Blanc, Le Salse Verdiccio, La Galope Rosé, Duxoup Charbobo, and Legar de Bezana Cabernet Sauvignon.  If you haven’t had a chance to try Duxoup Charbono yet, do it! Duxoup Wine Works is the creation of two free-spirited, inquisitive winemakers: Deborah and Andrew Cutter. They built their small winery themselves, on a hillside at the northern end of Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley. The two person operation is designed for small production and gentle, gravity flow winemaking. Deb and Andy specialize in producing silky, fruity wines from grapes grown in venerable vineyards.

Friday’s tasting will feature wines from Maverick Wine Companies portfolio sampled by James. Gessami Gramona, Astrolabe Sauvignon Blanc, Paul Cluver Gewurztraminer, Rudi Weist Pinot Noir, and Creta Roble Tempranillo will be served for your tasting desires. Creta Roble Tempranillo has an opaque purple color, offering up a brooding bouquet of pencil shavings, espresso, Asian spices, incense, and assorted black fruits. Structured on the palate with layers of succulent fruit, this concentrated, lengthy effort admirably reflects the strength of the superb vintage.
