First Wednesday Tasting: ‘Tis the Season

October is here, and there’s a lot to celebrate: It’s the first “real” month of fall (weather-wise, anyway), you can watch a horror movie every night of the week and not feel guilty, and of course, costumes and candy on the 31st. It’s no ordinary month, and we have no ordinary First Wednesday Tasting tasting to kick everything off!

Join us on Wednesday, October 6, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (click here for tickets), as we pour more than two dozen recent-vintage wines from around the world, including:

2008 Wine Guerrilla Zinfandel, Russian River Valley, Sonoma, California [$15.19]
The 2008 Russian River Valley Zinfandel is 86% Zinfandel from MacMurray Ranch in Healdsburg & 14% Petite Sirah from Forchini’s Russian River Vineyard. Gobs and gobs of black raspberry fruit, balanced by hints of peppery spice and vibrant acidity. Just a touch of soft tannins make this a “go to” for any BBQ. One of the best values you will find in the Zin world.

2009 Babich “Headwaters Organic Block” Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand [$15.99]

The nose is subtly perfumed with red current and passion fruit. The palate has a soft and sweet fruited entry nice weight and is finely structured – making it a good food match. Juicy fruits are found on the mid palate and the finish is dry. Should develop nicely in the medium term.

2008 Vina Cobos Felino Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendoza, Argentina [$16.79]

From famed winemaker Paul Hobbs. A fresh, forward style, with black currant, black licorice snap and coffee notes that linger through the medium-weight finish.
