Please join Kate Thorsen of Maverick Wine Company this Saturday, November 9, 2013 from 2 PM – 4 PM for a wonderful tasting of select wines! 

Gruet Brut, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA
Price: $15.99/bottle or $191.88/case
Sale: $14.39/bottle or $172.69/case

The Brut is a crisp and full-bodied sparkling wine, which has developed rich complexity and fine mousse. The allure of a toasty finish from twenty-four months on tirage, is a complement to the sophisticated apple and citrus flavor.

2012 Monchhof Riesling,
Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany
Price: $16.99/ bottle or $203.88/case
Sale: $15.29/bottle or $183.49/case

Grown on iron-infused Devon Slate, this wine feels like biting into a ripe white peach, juicy, rich, creamy and sweet, with a full aromas, yet the wine offers great minerality and acidity to balance the sweetness. Most of the fruit comes from the famous grand cru vineyard site “Würtzgarten” (spice garden) in the town of Ürzig, which gives the wine its spicy profile.  Great to enjoy on its own, but also great with salads and spicy dishes or fusion cuisine.

2012 Astrolabe Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand
Price: $24.99/bottle or $299.88/case
Sale: $22.49/bottle or $269.88/case

This Sauvignon Blanc will pair well with poultry and seafood. Notes of lemon grass, lime peel and elderflower come through on the nose with background notes of white currant and red pepper. It is medium bodied with currant, gooseberry and citrus on the palette. It finishes dry and with minerality.

2011 Foxglove Zinfandel, Paso Robles, California, USA
Price: $15.99/bottle or $191.88/case
Sale: $14.39/bottle or $172.68/case

A spicy, peppery wine with cherry and both red and blue fruit character. With 14% Petite Sirah included in the blend, it is a tank-fermented, naked, unmanipulated expression of Zinfandel fruit from California’s Central Coast offering plenty of crunchy berry fruit.

2012 Heron Monterey Pinot Noir, Monterey County, California, USA
Price: $16.99/bottle or $203.88/case
Sale: $15.29/bottle or $183.48/case

This wine offers Pinot’s characteristic perfume of cherries and violets, along with an herbal quality and pleasant earthiness that makes Pinot a one-of-a-kind variety. This wine is further harmonized by delicate spice and fine sweet oak notes on the finish.
