JULY TELLER 12

Whites

 

Charles Smith Eve (Chardonnay), Washington

Citrus blossom, mineral and hints of lime emerge from the glass. Medium bodied, refreshing.

 

Kris (Pinot Grigio), Delle Venezie, Italy  

Enticing aromas of acacia flowers, citrus, tangerine, and hints of apricots and almonds. Lean and fresh palate and blossoms of honey on the finish.

 

Robertson (Gewürtztraminer), South Africa     

Full bodied wine with honeysuckle and rose petals on the nose. Rich and smooth beautifully balanced sugar and acid give an extra interest by a touch of honeyed botrytis.

 

Illuminati (Trebbiano, Passerina, Chardonnay), Italy  

Delicate fruity and floral aromas on the mineral undertones with a core of white flowers. Dry and fresh with a refined finish.

 

Mars and Venus (Sauvignon Blanc), Spain   

He’s from Mars and she’s from Venus. But together, they are perfectly balanced. Wonderful fruit and zing at the end without the over-the-top grapefruit bomb like New Zealand Sauv Blancs.

 

Vivanco Blanco (Viura, Tempranillo Blanco, Maturana Blanca), Spain     

The latter two grapes do not exist anywhere else in the world. Floral, layered palate of tropical fruit, apples, bananas, and citrus. One of the most eclectic white Riojas you’ve ever had.

 

 

 

 

 

Reds

 

Borsao (Garnacha), Spain  

Intense aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. Well-structured wine that evokes blackberries, plum and a little leather and vanilla. Soft tannins.

 

Jaume (Cotes Du Rhone), France    

Aromatic and racy with powerful, pure fruit. Bursting with ripe juicy flavors. Hints of spice, cocoa and licorice. Supple and rich. Perfect example of a CDR.

 

Honora Vera (Cabernet Sauvignon), Spain  

Blackish plum in color with aromas of ripe black currants and a plummy core. Soft ripe tannins balance toasty oak and sweet fruit. Sustainably grown. Nice summer Cabernet.

 

Santa Ema (Merlot), Chile    

On the nose, unmistakable chocolate and vanilla appear along with red fruits and roasted coffee. The palate is silky with tremendous body. An excellent wine year after year.

 

Essay (Shiraz, Cinsault, Viognier), South Africa  

Made to be a softer fruitier style to lend the wine extra drinkability. Perfect with all kinds of foods. Juicy red berry fruit flavors are backed by a soft palate and accessible tannins.

 

Plungerhead (Zinfandel), Lodi, California   

This old vine Zin is a rich mouthful of black cherry, cassis and vanilla. The finish is long with spicy tannins. Perfect summer BBQ wine. Chill in the fridge 20-30 minutes before decanting.
