WINE

 

 

MY CONCEPT IS SIMPLE:  ALL OF MY WINES ARE TO COMPLEMENT MY HUSBANDS FOOD!   ALL WINES BY

THE GLASS & A HEALTHY POUR (4 GLASSES PER BTL.)  BY THE GLASS OR BY THE BOTTLE….

ALL PRICED THE SAME…WHAT CAN I SAY?…..I LIKE WINE.

Produced just north of Sancerre, this wine is fresh with piercing lemon & a light herbal essence.   Sunshine with citrus & crisp acidity.  A real food wine.

Not your mother’s pinot grigio. intense straw-yellow colour with a light nuance of antique rose. It is intense, full & fruity, with excellent persistence. Its taste is dry, velvety, & well…..just lovely.

Totally zesty swirls of ripe citrus sweep up green pear and melon notes as they rise from the glass and flow across the palate. This Grunner has verve and liveliness.

 LES APHILLANTHES, VAUCLUSE, FRANCE 2016             8 / 32

Clear, cherry-inspired with a  sunny, open bouquet, heat off the stones, an intense center.  Fine raspberry fruit. The palate is well-packed – the flavour, with the heat of stones in it….. glows.

 

ALTO CEDRO, MALBEC, ARGENTINA, 2015                                     9 / 36

A dark and dramatic Malbec.  Some chocolate as well as a ton of mulberry & plum fruit as well as some Asian Spice. 90 points Wine Spectator.

MONTE ZOVO, VALPOLICELLA RIPASSO, ITALY, 2014                                                                                       12 / 48

Ripasso is all the rage these days. This one is full of cherry, herbs & cranberry integrated with spicy pepper. Rich & lush it is made from classic Veronese grapes, “ripassato” over Amarone pomace to lend body & concentration.

 

DOMAINE ST. DAMIEN, GIGONDAS, FRANCE, 2015                                                                                            14 / 56

Loads of finesse & elegance. Offering lots of strawberry, framboise fruits & cedary spice.  Full-bodied richness & polished tannin, this terrific wine shines for its purity & finesse. Slightly higher altitude than a chateauneaf du pape.
