Free Friday Tasting: Sparkling Rosé, Pinot Blanc, Tempranillo
Join us this evening for a Free Friday Tasting, today from 4-6 p.m. We’ll be sharing free tastes of these wines on Saturday as well, 12-3 p.m.
Rivarose Brut, Sparkling Rosé — What if your favorite Rosé was also a sparkler? This one blends Rhône varietals (Syrah for vibrant fresh fruit and Grenache for substance) for an elegant balance of raspberry and sweet spice. Great for appetizers, or desserts. Shop $13
Brooks, Pinot Blanc, Willamette Valley, WA 2016 — We like the crisp, mineral finish of Pinot Blanc, but this one has creamier fruits that might entice Chardonnay drinkers. Medium-bodied, hits on lemon, peach, and melon notes, with a spicy snap to the finish. Shop $12.
Bodega Numanthia, Termes, Tempranillo, Toro, Spain 2014 — Dense and layered fruit, with nutty, vanilla notes. Very concentrated juice from 30-year-old vines at high elevation give a great starting point for a fruit-forward yet balanced wine. It’s all happening. $18 in the shop; discounted from $22.
Enjoy our Free Friday Tasting, whether you’re buying a case or just in for a taste, 4-6 p.m. at Story Hill BKC.
