August's Selections (1 bottle each):
Delaunay “Le Grand Ballon” : Rosé Blend
Touraine, Val de Loire, France
A brilliant salmon-pink color, this wine is a blend of Gamay, Cabernet Franc, and a touch of Malbec. The spicy nose of red currant, strawberry, and raspberry enhances the supple and creamy palate, with a hint of orange blossom and white pepper. Delicious with grilled stuffed mushrooms.
Monte del Fra : Garganega
Soave Classico DOC, Italy
Lightly aromatic, wisps of honeysuckle, cherry blossom and elderflower scent the nose. On the palate, notes of honey and tropical fruit gild flavors of citrus. Serve with crispy pork belly.
La Châsse : Chardonnay
Vin de France
Soft and fruity, notes of ripe apple and pear combine with a touch of lemon cream. Rich and round, balanced acidity complements a buttery texture. Savor with roasted Provençal-style chicken.
Laudun-Chusclan “Réserve de la Saurine” : Grenache/Carignan
Attractive aromas of raspberry, strawberry and plum balance structured tannins and juicy acidity. A touch of red fruit entwines with a hint of stony minerality in a lingering finish. Enjoy with a classic Hungarian goulash.
Contrada di San Felice : Red Blend
A blend of Merlot, Sangiovese, and Cabernet Sauvignon, fruity and lively notes of cherry and raspberry balance fresh acidity. Well-integrated tannins highlight hints of old leather and cigar box wrapped in dark fruit. Perfect served with a grilled pizza topped with spicy Italian sausage.
Glenbrook : Cabernet Sauvignon
Aromas of blueberry and cedar grace a medium-bodied palate. Flavors of ripe red apple and dark cherry lace with notes of vanilla and rich chocolate and a touch of tobacco. Match with a blue cheese burger fresh from the grill.
