Greetings from the Wine Cellar:
With the events of this past week happening so quickly, I’m jumping the gun on next week’s Old Town Wine Cellar Newsletter so that I can assure everyone that the Cellar remains fully OPEN for business, with our normal hours of 11AM to 7PM Tuesday – Friday and 10AM to 6PM Saturdays. As announced earlier this week, wine tastings and wines-by-the-glass in the Cellar will remain suspended until further notice. But we still have our full inventory of great wines and beers available for purchase, and beginning next week, the Wine Cellar will offer “curbside pickup” for customers if they desire. Just call the shop when you arrive (373-0405), tell me what you’d like to buy and provide a credit card number, and I’ll be happy to bring the order out to your car. If you’re interested in this option rather than coming in the shop to browse the racks, just e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will send you a current listing of all wines and beers currently in stock along with prices.
NEW WINE & BEER ARRIVALS:
Lohr 2017 Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon (Paso Robles) $29.99
J Lohr’s ‘Hilltop’ Cabernet is always among Paso’s finest, year after year. Varietal fruit aromas of ripe black plums and violets are enhanced by a French oak barrel character of vanilla and dark chocolate. A dense, supple and approachable palate is followed by an intense, rich and fruit-filled finish.
Angeline 2018 Rosé of Pinot Noir (Sonoma County) $12.99
This Sonoma rosé offers delicious aromas of peach, dried apricot, and mandarin zest, with a backdrop of fragrant citrus blossom. A fresh entry of tart cherry, wild strawberry and honeyed cantaloupe leads into a crisp citrus mid-palate, closing beautifully with a clean and tangy acidity on the brisk finish.
Conde de Valdemar 2011 Rioja Reserva (Rioja, Spain) $24.99
Conde de Valdemar’s Riserva is a fleshy, ripe and seductive Rioja blend of Tempranillo and Mazuelo from the Rioja Alavesa, blended with Garnacha from the Rioja Baja. Sleek, rich red fruit is carried on silky tannins, accented with hints of white pepper and a dash of spicy oak.
Bischöfliche Weingüter 2013 Estate Riesling (Mosel Valley, Germany) $22.99
Zesty evergreen and herb notes lend fine freshness to juicy flavors of Meyer lemons and nectarines in this Mosel Riesling. The palate builds in floral, fruity intensity. The wine is delicately sweet, and yet still brisk in citrusy acidity, with a refreshing finish.
