Greetings from the Wine Cellar:
It’s finally October. Or at least it will be Friday. The weather here in Yuma is getting decidedly more pleasant by the day, and especially evenings are getting downright mellow. It’s a perfect excuse to come down to Historic Downtown on a pleasant early fall late afternoon or evening and enjoy all that the downtown area has to offer – especially the Old Town Wine Cellar. There are always great new wines to sample, or a nice cold craft brew or imported beer to enjoy. So shake off the summer doldrums and venture on down here soon!
FEATURED WINES THIS WEEK
Casa Lunardi 2019 Pinot Grigio (Delle Venezie, Italy) $12.99
This Pinot Grigio displays vibrant ripe fruit aromas and juicy flavors of pear and citrus, supported by zesty acidity. A light mineral character adds a nice degree of complexity.
Cambria 2018 Julia’s Vineyard Pinot Noir (Santa Maria Valley) $19.99
Julia’s Vineyard was planted in 1991 in the heart of Santa Barbara County’s Santa Maria bench. This is classic Santa Maria Valley Pinot, offering a bright beam of black cherry, strawberry and pomegranate fruit. An underlying savory quality balances the sweet fruit with a spicy backdrop.
Goldschmidt Winery 2019 Fidelity Red (Alexander Valley) $16.99
All the fruit for this wine was sourced from Nick Goldschmidt’s Crazy Creek Vineyard in
Sonoma’s Alexander Valley. A Meritage-style blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit
Verdot, it’s a rich and supple red with flavors of black cherries, espresso and dark chocolate.
Leeuwin Estate 2017 Siblings Shiraz (Margaret River, Australia) $22.99
Bright flavors of black currant, dark cherry and boysenberry are all classic Aussie Shiraz, with accompanying accents of cardamom, anise and cedar. The polished palate has balanced acidity and firm, drying tannins, plus subtle notes of chocolate and freshly roasted coffee.
Kuleto Estate 2016 India Ink (Lake County/Napa Valley) $22.99
A blend of Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Merlot, this wine was made for pure indulgence. India Ink is richly flavored and hedonistic, with lush aromas of ripe red fruits and spices on the nose underlaid with hints of smoke and earth. Vivid black fruit flavors are complemented by hints of black pepper, cedar and dark chocolate.
NEW WINE & BEER ARRIVALS
The Prisoner Wine Company 2017 Eternally Silenced Pinot Noir (California) $34.99
Eternally Silenced will leave you speechless. It’s rich and elegant, soft and well-balanced. A bright nose of pine needles, cranberry, black cherry, cedar and clove. On the palate, fresh flavors of ripe berries and cherries, an ample structure and seamless tannins. Say no more…
Conundrum 2019 California White Blend $15.99
Conundrum offers a floral bouquet that bursts forth with notes of honeysuckle and butterscotch. Tropical fruit flavors of mango, pineapple and kiwi fruit mingle on the front-palate. Then, fresh peach and pear flavors begin to dominate as this luscious wine comes to a wonderfully long and deliciously rich finish.
Wren House Brewing Arizona Star Pale Ale (Phoenix) $4.99
Lightly hazy in appearance, Arizona Star is built to be a drinkable, crisp and moderately bitter pale ale showcasing pure Citra hops. It’s bittered with Cascade hops, then hit with a small amount of Citra hops before being dry-hopped with a bit more Citra. It’s a beer that’s fresh, juicy and very thirst-quenching.
