Francis Tannahill 2014 The Hermit Pinot Noir – Aromas of dark Bing cherries, Asian spices, cassis, minerals and clean earth. The palate is broad and intensive with balancing acidity and stunning focus. It’s succulent, spicy and dark and moves into an extremely long finish that goes on and on. Don’t miss this unbelievable wine from this vintage!
Merry Edwards 2016 Sauvignon Blanc (California) – This Russian River Sauvignon Blanc has floral scents of hibiscus, honeysuckle, jasmine and orange blossom. Notes of muskmelon, mango, papaya and guava widen the aroma, along with accents of white peach, nectarine and Meyer lemon. Hints of minerality, crème brûlée and toasted hazelnuts add even more sophistication. In the mouth, this wine is lush with good viscosity. This richness is balanced by sweet Ruby Red grapefruit, tangerine zest and lively acidity throughout. Perfect for Crab and Oysters.
Jean Milan NV Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut (France) – Fresh and vibrant, this champagne comes from Grand Cru vineyards in Oger in the Côte des Blancs. With its soft texture and ripe character, it’s an attractive champagne with bright citrus and pear flavors. Just the Champagne for the Holidays.
Gaston Chiquet NV Brut (France) – A classic blended Champagne of 40% Pinot Meunier, 35% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir, incorporating base wines from more than one harvest. The aromas and flavors of fresh apricot, white peach and citrus are fresh and well balanced. Delightful Champagne.
