February's Wines of the Month

No theme to this month’s wine bag, but when does that stop us from exploring new wines?  As always, approach each wine selection with an open mind in hopes that you discover something new to throw into your array of likable wines.

 

Wine #1: Moulin de Gassac Guilhem Blanc

40% Grenache Blanc, 30% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Terret, from vineyards in the area around the Thau Lagoon, near the village of Pinet. 25-50 year old vines.  All stainless steel.

Fresh, lively and full of crisp citrus notes and clean, refreshing minerality on the finish. Unoaked. A total crowd pleaser!

 

Wine #2: Domaine d’ Aussieres Red Blend

30% Syrah, 25% Marselan, 15% Merlot, 10% Cabernet sauvignon, 10% Cabernet franc, 10% Autres. Aging is then carried out in vats so as to keep all of the fruit’s freshness and purity. Beautiful dark ruby color. On the nose, notes of red fruits and cinnamon with a hint of vanilla. On the palate, fine tannins, full bodied with a structure brought by the Syrah. Pleasant persistence with fresh fruits, mingled with toasted notes with a great finesse.

 

Wine #3 Fince El Origin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

Intense ruby red color, aromas of black fruits, such as blackberries and cassis, are complemented with spices such as black pepper and tobacco. The 8% Syrah and 7% Malbec improve the fruity notes and color of the wine. It shows good structure with velvety soft tannins. 

 

Wine #4 Montanas Rocosas Brut Rosado Cava

100% Trepat, aged 12 months in cava before release. Lively and bright, intense pink color. Good release of small bubbles followed by aromas reminiscent of red berries.  Clean and fruit-driven on the palate with a long-lasting dry finish.

 

Wine #5 Maxale Appassimento Primitivo

Full-bodied rich & supple with ripe cherries, raspberries & red currant layered roasted and spicy notes.  AND!!!! It’s Vegan Friendly

 

Wine #6 Senatore Primo Piemonte Rosso

A blend between Barbera & Dolcetto.
Bright burnt sienna color. Aromas and flavors of dried cherry, ground espresso, anise, and jam with a satiny, dry medium body smooth finish that presents nuances of toffee and dried fig. A fun Italian table red that will be perfect for salumi and cheese plates.
