Please join James Adam of  Cream Wine Co. this Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 2 PM – 4 PM for a wonderful tasting of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from various regions.

Here is the line up:

2012 Milou Chardonnay, Vin de Pays d’Oc, Languedoc-Roussillon, France

Price: $9.99/bottle or $119.88/case

Sale: $8.99/bottle or $107.89/case
This wine strikes a perfect balance with rich white peach & pineapple fruit flavors, zippy citrus notes of lemon zest, a streak of minerality, and satisfying length and finish.

 

2012 Rickshaw Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast, California, USA

Price: $15.49/bottle or $185.88/case

Sale: $13.94/bottle or $167.29/case
The Rickshaw Chardonnay has all the elegance of its SonomaCoast peers, blended with rich notes of creme brulee and topped with ripe tropical fruits. For this vintage, we scoured vineyards all over California looking for the perfect balance of zip and lusciousness. After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine was aged in French and American Oak barrels for 6 months to add a toasty complexity.

 

2012 Banshee Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast, California, USA

Price: $18.49/bottle or $221.88/case

Sale: $16.64/bottle or $199.69/case

Charming aromatically, this Chardonnay immediately hints toward Asian pear and apple flavors with an underlying cut of lemon framed by hints of Tahitian vanilla from fine-grained French oak. It offers hints of more tropical flavors without ever fully realizing them and finishes with ample verve.

 

2012 Rickshaw Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast, California, USA

Price: $15.49/bottle or $185.88/case

Sale: $13.94/bottle or $167.29/case

This wine sings with unmistakable and pure Pinotosity! It has a compelling mix of raspberry, pomegranate and cherry notes combined with a stylishly integrated structure. All in all, pretty amazing Pinot Noir for its modest price.

 

2011 Banshee Pinot Noir, Sonoma County, California, USA

Price: $21.99/bottle or $263.88/case

Sale: $19.79/bottle or $237.49/case

This elegant wine meets the eye with a medium ruby hue and offers up subtle hints of cherry and forest floor on the nose. On the palate one finds again a mix of Ranier and black cherries mountain strawberries, rosehip tea and plum. There are some savory notes following through the finish that give the wine a clean line from front to back.  

 

2010 Brooks ‘Janus’ Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA

Price: $34.99/bottle or $419.88/case

Sale: $31.49/bottle or $377.89/case

Ripe wild raspberry, dark ripe strawberry, and black cherry. Potpourri and rose petals, violets and a hint of cola. Faint smoke notes, bacon fat, nutmeg and coriander spices with grilled porcini mushroom. This has a marvelous lush texture. Ripe red and black fruits, ranging from macerated strawberry and raspberry to blackberry and black cherry. Floral notes of Iris and violets. Wonderful complexity, smoked meat, dried mushroom, and plum.
