1. Keplinger 2015 Red Blend:
- 94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
The Keplinger 2015 ‘Mars’ Red Blend comes from a rocky red slope where nothing more than struggling grapevines grow in the Moon Mountain AVA; it’s a site that makes Helen Keplinger feel like she’s on the planet Mars. On the nose, the ever-evolving aromatics show blackberry, violets, star anise, cardamom, black pepper, and tangerine zest, while the palate opens with super-fine, mouth-coating tannins and a blend of juicy, floral, mineral, and silky nuances - all harmoniously blended together. Enjoy!
2. Blagden 2017 Chardonnay:
- 93 Points + Gold Medal - Tastings.com (Beverage Testing Institute)
Produced from the renowned Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard in the Sonoma Coast, the Blagden 2017 Chardonnay is balanced, complex, and a beautiful representation of this site’s special terroir. Golden in color, this Chardonnay opens with aromas of lemon curd, tangerine peel, kiwi, meringue, and saline with hints of citrus blossom against a slight vanilla backdrop. As it opens, you can also smell night jasmine, apple, honeydew melon and sweet nectarine. On the palate, the velvety entry coats the mouth with golden delicious apple, almond and beeswax, with other notes of citrus peel and pineapple, all centered around a firm yet elegant citrus fruit core. The long finish brings minerality, stone fruits and a subtle oak undertone with racy acidity. Enjoy!
The Chocolate Truffles and Chocolate toffee pair perfectly with both of these highly-rated, award-winning wines featured in our Wine of the Month Clubs.
*The wines and artisan foods we carry in our Wine Store are in very high demand and individual wines and foods change frequently. Due to this, if a wine featured in this gift set sells out, a bottle or food item of the same quality and value will be included to complete this selection.
