    Would you consider yourself the hunter or the huntee? Whichever you are,  you can definitely enjoy the Predator Old Vine Zinfandel!

      

    Predator has a gorgeous deep ruby color, bold aromas, velvety texture and delicious flavors of ripe cherries, blackberries, exotic spices with a silky, lingering finish.

    And a fun-fact about Predator’s Ladybug logo is that the winemaker’s use “natural predation” in their vineyards instead of pesticides. The end result is a more eco-friendly wine with a whole lot less negative impact on the environment!

    Château Penin Tradition Bordeaux Supérieur 2009

     

    This week’s W.o.W. comes from the heart of Bordeaux and is a beautiful expression of the soil in that region. This makes it stand out among the other Bordeaux Supérieur wines.

    Château Penin is full-bodied, round and fleshy and still retains harmony. And the touch of Cabernet Franc gives the mix of berry fruit a little funkiness.

    Henry of Pelham Family Estate Non-Oaked Chardonnay 2008

     

    Our Price: $12.99

    Feature Price: $10.99

     

     

    Made from selected Niagra vineyards and aged Sur lie to gain complexity and depth of flavor, the Henry of Pelham Chardonnay is a nutty Canadian production. Bright and aromatic with flavors ranging from vibrant apple to citrusy grapefruit. True cool climate Chardonnay character!

      

    A perfect pairing with everybody’s favorite Scalloped Potatoes!

     

    Belle Glos Meiomi Pinot Noir 2009

    Bright, deep garnet color. Aromas of cola, blackberries and a sweet cedar note. A greatly layered palette abundant in flavor and texture. The first entry incases the mouth with a velvety richness. Then the wine unloads with flavors of bright cherry, cola, dried leaves undertoned with vanilla, leather and high style oak. The many layers emerge independently, then refocus while the supple tannins carry the wine through to a lingering, succulent finish.

      

    The thought of Meiomi Pinot Noir with Easter ham has my mouth watering!

    Charles & Charles Red Wine

     

    Snow in April is a total bummer. So, this week’s W.o.W. is not only tasty and a great value, it’s pretty Bad-Ass! Charles & Charles is exactly what we need to keep our spirits high until this dang weather breaks!!

    Wine Spectator describes the Charles & Charles Columbia Valley Red as polished and generous with a green olive edge to the dark berry flavors that linger softly. Meant to be drunk fast and young and according to the winemakers you can pound it before dinner or pair with anything off the bbq.
