Deal Of The Month

2015 KEVIN WHITE RED WINE

Winemaker Kevin White has totally hit it out of the park with his 2015 Kevin White Red. A blend of 44% Syrah, 31% Grenache, and 25% Mourvèdre, the wine has deep plum and blueberry scents from its Grenache, and game flavors from the Syrah. The wine is blended from declassified barrels after the selections for his ‘La Fraternité’ and ‘En Hommage’ Rhone-style blends have been made. This is a stellar value, perfect for mid-week imbibing.

The Weekly Tasting

2015 Beaujolais

Diurnal shifts, that crazy relationship between daytime and nighttime temperatures, saved the 2015 vintage Beaujolais from losing acidity and freshness. It was a hot year. One needs to look back to 1976 and 1947 to find such warm summer weather. The steady temperatures during the summer with frequent heat spikes pushed the beginning of harvest up to August 24. Few vintages have begun before September. These are big wines with lots of berry fruit but with a core of refreshing acidity, superb balance and complexity.
