David Arendt from 90+ Cellars Friday, 5 - 8 p.m.
Regional Sales Manager David Arendt from 90+ Cellars will be here pouring their new summer selections. Taste and learn all about these delicious and affordable wines from some of the best regions of France and California!
90+ Cellars, Bourgogne Aligote, Burgundy, France, 2017 - $16.99
The inconspicuous Aligoté is a refreshing gem of a white wine grown in the rolling hills of Burgundy. Known for its crisp and dry-but-fruity profile, this unique white grape grows on the tops and bottoms of Burgundy’s sloping vineyards. Grown in Burgundy for centuries the wines are terroir-driven with the lively acidity of Chablis. Aromas of stone fruits like nectarine and peach are followed by fresh herbs on the nose. On the palate is a beautiful minerality and acidity that leaves your mouth watering for more. With lean, mineral-driven flavors and bright acidity, pairs exceptionally well with shellfish, fish dishes and cow’s milk cheeses.
90+ Cellars, Chenas, Gamay, Beaujolais, 2018 - $16.99
Chénas is one of ten crus of Beaujolais known for producing distinctive red wines made from the Gamay grape. Bunches are hand harvested from vines pruned in the shape of a gobelet that sprout from granite soils on gentle southern-facing slopes just south of the city of Macon. Made by means of partial carbonic maceration which increases color while maintaining a soft texture. Balanced, layered and fresh with an earthy intensity and delicate, floral aromas. Open with barbecue dishes, a smoky red lentil soup with rosemary, or a simple baguette and cheese.
90+ Cellars, Pinot Noir, Sebastopol Ridge, Russian River Valley, California, 2017 - $21.99
From a single vineyard in the most southerly region in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley. The combination of cooler temperatures, gentle slopes, and loosely textured soil produces intense aromas, a lively touch and an exhilarating finish. Ripe raspberry, cherry and strawberry aromas alongside savory earth, gentle smoke and fresh violet. Carries significant weight for a Pinot Noir, balanced by abundant fruit along with nervy acidity. The finish is a long mixture of fruit, earth and spice. You can drink now, but this wine should also improve with some bottle age.
90+ Cellars, Bordeaux, France, 2016 - $10.99
When it comes to “classic” wines, it doesn’t get much more classic than Bordeaux. 2016 was a highly praised vintage for Bordeaux producing lively aromatic wines with ripe dark fruit aromas and an easygoing texture. Merlot is usually the dominant variety in the blend, but the warm vintage of 2016 allowed Cabernet Sauvignon to ripen more fully in Bordeaux’s cooler maritime climate. Clove and dried fruits on the nose. Blackcurrant with notes of cherry lead way to toasty smoky layers that last. Pair with roast lamb with garlic and rosemary or a spread of hard sheep cheeses.
90+ Cellars, St. Helena, Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2017 - $24.99
Some of Napa’s most historic and acclaimed wineries come from St. Helena. Located in the northern reaches of the valley, nestled between the Mayacamas and Vaca Mountains, vineyards stretch out above the valley floor on mountain benchlands and alluvial fans of soils generally comprised of volcanic and sedimentary matter. A mix of hillside vineyards and deep soils allow roots to dig deep for nutrients thus creating Cabernet Sauvignon with intense concentration of flavor and color. Warm days and cool nights produce perfect balance and acidity. Full-bodied and textured, hints of vanilla, blackberry and cedar with lingering notes of tobacco and currants. Impressive and age-worthy, this wine is perfect to drink now but can be cellared away for 5-10 years.
