Wine Features
Chateau Virecourt  Bordeaux France  2009
Beautiful, deep, purple robe. The nose is particularly complex with intense aromas recalling, cedars and grilled toast. On the palate, the wine is flavorful, lively, and beautifully dense without being hard. Nice finish.
Antinori Santa Christina Pinot Grigio Italy 2011
Bright straw-yellow in color, this classic Pinot Grigio offers an intense fruity nose reminiscent of fresh white fruits and citrus, particularly pear, green apple and orange. Soft and flavorful on the palate, with hints of white fruit flavors, this wine possesses vibrant acidity and a lasting finish.
From the Cellar…..Colle Christie  Amarone Della Valpolicella  Italy 2008
"Aromatic with floral, spice and graphite accents, showing flavors of juicy kirsch, black raspberry ganache and date. Focused and well-structured, with polished tannins, this features hints of coffee liqueur and mineral on the finish."
