It’s tarts and IPAs this Saturday! We’ll start with two Urban Artifacts, first being Vocoder and then their Gadget. From Sixpoint Brewery it’s Meltdown, a lush, hazy IPA and then finish with Resin the big boy that they’re known for. All great beers and another great tasting for you this Saturday!
This week’s feature is the newest addition to The Prisoner Wine Company’s lineup. Unshackled Red Blend proved itself as a special glass pour a few weeks back and now we have it in the racks. Unshackled Red Blend opens with aromas of raspberry, blueberry and crushed violets. Flavors of spiced dried cherries, florals and a hint of white pepper translate to a balanced red blend wine supported with a generous mouth feel. A blend of Zinfandel, Malbec, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Grenache is barrel aged in French and American oak casks for 10 months before bottling. If you were a fan of Dave Phinney’s creations of past this new blend is very reminiscent and sure to please and at $24.99 it won’t break the bank. Stop in and pick one up!
La Rovesciata from Italy is my pick for this week. No doubt this is the first time we’ve recognized a pétillant naturel wine, what is that you ask??? Wine the way it was made hundreds of years ago, Pét-nat, or Méthode Ancestrale, is a method of sparkling wine production used all over the world. Unlike traditional-method sparkling wines, like Champagne, which add sugar and yeast to dry, still wine in order trigger a second fermentation and produce bubbles, pét-nat works by bottling wine that is only partially fermented. Our new wine is a tart tasty alternative, these wines only tip the scales at 11% making it a welcome reprise from other choices in the wine world. This white, while refreshingly different, and refreshing by the glass is only $22.99 a bottle and is worth giving a chance to see what the buzz is about.
It’s a vegetable based Big Pizza special. In observance of Lent we’ve got you covered…Please, just don’t give up wine or beer during the Lenten season.
I know February is the shortest month of the year but this month has flown by. Spring has got to be around the corner because we’re doing our pre-orders for 2019 Rose’s. I hate to think my internal calendar is set for wine releases but, hey, that’s what I do. We’ve got some new exciting wines in and more coming soon. After all, Spring is a rebirth and an awakening to what the new season brings. Keep an eye out for many of our new offerings, be it beer or wine there’s something new everyday down here.
Cheers from all of us here at The Wine Merchant
