Greetings from the Wine Cellar:

New wines and craft brews keep on coming at the Old Town Wine Cellar.  Here are just a few!

NEW WINE & BEER ARRIVALS:

Dry Creek Vineyard 2018 Heritage Vines Zinfandel (Dry Creek Valley)    $21.99

The 2018 Heritage Vines Zin has an enticing nose of raspberry, cranberry and plum, plus hints of coriander, cardamom and chocolate.  On the palate, brambly flavors of blackberry and dark cherry dominate, with accents of cumin and white pepper. Bright acidity and smooth tannins contribute a rich and elegant mouthfeel.

Marc Brédif 2017 Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine Royal Oyster (Loire Valley, France)    $17.99

This fragrant Loire white offers expressive aromas of citrus, apricots and wildflowers.  It’s refreshingly clean in the mouth, with a savory touch of salinity and a lightly stony mineral character.  Juicy white fruit flavors dominate the front-palate, and a distinctive pear-skin accent enlivens the zesty finish.

Shipyard Brewing Smashed Blueberry Ale (Portland, Maine)    $4.99

Smashed Blueberry is a hybrid between a Porter and a Scotch Ale.  It has a rich mouthfeel and a full, complex body.  Up front, notes of roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate are accentuated by the aroma of ripe wild blueberries.  The finish offers a delicate interplay of sweet fruit and dry hops.

Cheers!
