WINE NEWS…

Good news for Wine News…We have more Secret Squirrel, it went over so well we may have a new permanent addition to the shelves.

Dan’s Wine Feature

This week’s feature is the Queen of Italian wine, Camigliano 2014 Brunello Di Montalcino, while always a great buy this bottle came in at $10.00 off per bottle and at $29.99 it’s a great find and for you a great buy! Described by James Suckling as having “a wealth of fruit yet remains fresh and vivid with blueberry and black cherry character. Some bark and dried earth. This wine is full bodied, having integrated tannins and a flavorful finish”. It doesn’t take that much to get me excited about a Brunello, a few years back I had the opportunity to open a 40 year old bottle and it was one of the best wines I’ve ever had. Would I hold this bottle till 2054, NO! I’d drink it tonight

Dan’s Pick

Everyone enjoyed last week’s deal on Robert Oatley’s Shiraz so this week we brought in it’s brother, Robert Oatley’s GSM for the same price. This 90 pt. award winning wine is a polished and tightly wound blend that is savory and meaty in flavors of tart cranberry, hoisin sauce and cigar box. It's a medium- to full-bodied wine, wrapped in drying, chalky tannins, but ends on a fruity finish. And as was the Shiraz originally priced at $19.99 we have it in at it’s close out price of $12.99. This Signature Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre is a classic Rhone style blend from McLaren Vale, Australia, this wine is perfect for whatever’s on the table, stop in and pick up a few, at this price you can’t go wrong!

Food News

Direct from San Miniato, Italy 750 ml cans of the best Extra Virgin Olive Oil you’ve ever had! I have been to this mill numerous times and everyone who has gone to Italy with Gianni always comes back with this product. We are fortunate to have one case available for you. At $29.99 it’s not an oil you cook with, it’s a finishing oil. Decadent and elegant this product is like no other you’ve had unless you’ve brought it back from Italy. Since no ones headed to Italy any time soon we’ve brought a little bit of Italy to you…

Final Thought

This weekend would have been our “Best Wurst” event, something we have enjoyed doing the past few years and seeing how our event wasn’t going to take place we’ve decided to bring it to you. We have some unique and some old favorite sausages for you to enjoy this weekend around the grill or in your kitchen, not to mention some great Oktoberfest beers to accompany. Take some time this weekend and have a Hometoberfest and enjoy the season…More Hometoberfests ideas next week!

Please, please continue safe practices and please bring a mask when you come visit us at the store.

Cheers from all of us here at The Wine Merchant
