Last of The November Wines Tastings

by Jonathan Gaby on November 30, 2017

Can it be? It’s the last day of November and tomorrow will be the last month of the year! We’ve seen a lot of action this year and we’re looking forward to a December filled with fun, festivities, and a merry Christmas and happy holidays!

Wine Tasting - Line 39 Chardonnay, SIMI Merlot from Sonoma County, Chateau Tour de Tourteau Cotes du Bourg, Benchmark No. 8 Brown Sugar

Today we’re going to feature some new wines that might go well with any of your get togethers, parties, or even a nice quiet, relaxing evening after shopping or running the kids around.

Line 39 Chardonnay
“Our Chardonnay is a rich, medium-bodied wine with hints of oak and lush tropical and stone fruit flavors on the palate. Crisp and refreshing, this wine can be enjoyed with a variety of fish and chicken dishes or all by itself on a warm summer afternoon.” – Line 39 Wines

SIMI Merlot from Sonoma County
“Our 2014 Sonoma County Merlot is deep garnet with a ruby edge. The nose is a compelling mixture of sour cherry, blackberry, and red plum with cocoa, clove, and earthy hints of cedar, bay laurel, and smoky bacon framing the bright fruit. On the palate, bright red fruit, red plum, black cherry, blackberry, and wild berry meld with light toast, vanilla, and a hint of fresh, sweet herbs, while spice lends depth and weight. The wine finishes with toasty oak and spice. 87% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec” – Simi Winery

Chateau Tour de Tourteau Cotes du Bourg
“The harvests are mechanical and followed by a 20-days maceration in stainless-steel vats. The bottling is carried out at the Château two years after the harvest. Château Tour de Tourteau has an intense robe with deep garnet-red hints. The bouquet is powerful, intense, with candied red-berry fruits aromas, ending with dry fruits and tobacco notes. On the palate it is fleshy, mouthful and it reveals robust tannins.” – Grands Vins de Gironde

Benchmark “Brown Sugar” Bourbon
We’re offering a bourbon to sample along with our wines. While this is a flavored bourbon, verging into being a liqueur, we wanted to highlight this as an option for when you’re making cocktails at home to add a new dimension to your drinks.
