Wines of the Month
Les Tètes Red and White -- 10% off.
Les Tètes is a small wine project run collaboratively by 4 friends, Nicolas, Philippe, Baptiste, and Vivien. They are located in the village of Le Pressoir in Touraine Azay-le-Rideau in the Loire Valley. Les Tètes is focused on bringing fresh and fruity competitively-priced wines that are grown organically and fermented with native yeasts and with only minimal sulfur added. In their own words, "Les Tétes is about friendship, and wines you drink with friends."
* Tete Red: 90% Cabernet Franc 10% Grolleau. A classic lighter bodied Cab. Franc with red fruit, light herbal notes and a hint of granite. Good acidity, a great fresh wine for drinking now.
* Tete White: 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Chenin Blanc. White flowers, notes of pear, good balance with richness and a savory finish.
Chateau Trebiac Graves 2012
A blend of Cabernet and Merlot with enough age to be showing pleasant signs of maturity. Smooth tannins, cherries and dark fruit, hints of leather and dark chocolate. Usually this wine goes for $18, we have it for $10.95.
From the Tank Red:
At the equivalent of $9 a bottle, this boxed wine does it all. It's made from organic, sustainably farmed grapes, hand harvested, made with only indigenous yeasts and lightly sulfured. Nothing else out there delivers this kind of natural wine in packaging designed to minimize the carbon footprint and waste stream. Lasts for a month after opening when stored in the fridge instead of a few days for a bottle.
* Grenache, Syrah and Carignan: Smoky red fruits, violets and baker's chocolate over ripe cherry and berry flavors with good minerality and smooth tannins.
* From the Tank White coming next week.
Beer & Cider
Killer Lion Fresh Hop IPA
Fresh Citrus and Mosaic hops lead with pride lending dank, green, tropic resin, and evergreen. Blood orange, tangelo, and fresh bread stalk closely behind, with the earthy scent of Northwest petrichor hanging in the finish.
Farmstrong Steer You Right Imperial Stout
Offers immensely complex flavors and a big malt body. Subtle hints off Cocoa and coffee with a slightly boozy finish. Ages well.
Tieton Cider Works Organic Hard Cider
Organic Washington Cider in a can. I've been looking for a 6pack cider that we could really feel proud of and until now it has eluded me. Slightly tart, well balanced with a nice fruity nose. From a 100 year old family farm in Tieton, WA.
