October’s 6 for $60
Iris Vineyards : Pinot Noir Rosé
Scents of red plums and sweet herbal notes. The aromas are joined on the palate with blackberry and purple fruits. The full rich midpalate gives way to silky soft tannins and finishes with raspberry notes. Match with oven-baked salmon fillets.
Liotro : Inzolia
Light green apple in color with aromas of apricot and pears. The flavor is soft and elegant with notes of white peaches and a touch of vanilla. A well structured and dry persistent finish makes this pair well with mushroom risotto and walnuts.
Between the Vines : Chardonnay
Notes of tropical fruit and yellow apple are balanced by sweet flavors of vanilla and notes of buttery spice. Full-bodied and easy-drinking, the finish ends on a note of lemon cream. Match with chicken in a creamy tarragon sauce.
Mariano J. Lacort Crianza : Tempranillo, Garnacha
Cherry hues intermingle with ruby tones in the glass. This wine has a bouquet of ripe cherries, red currants, and oak. A silky mouthfeel at entry that gives way to a perfect balance of fruit and oak. A touch of spice on this medium-bodied red will make the perfect “breakfast for dinner” match alongside fried eggs, spicy onions, and portobello mushrooms.
Gabriel Meffre “La Châsse” : Grenache, Syrah
Côtes du Rhône, France
This 50/50 organic Côtes du Rhône blend has deep dark berry and distilled cherry fruit perfumes that fill the glass. The palate has rich and ample red fruits with a touch of blackcurrant and white pepper. This wine is to be consumed with Texas-style smoked brisket.
Apollonio “Elfo” : Negroamaro
Ripe red fruit aromas are a delight on the nose. A touch of thyme balances notes of black cherry and dried cranberry. Hints of dried plum and violet enhance the finish. Delicious savored with a slice of caramelized zucchini flatbread.
