SAVVY SERIES TICKETS
Chardonnay Around the World!
Chardonnay, one of the most adaptable grape varieties when it comes to the winemaker’s dream. A deft hand can demonstrate the magic of oak + grape, though an equally deft hand can create stars in a bottle, with no oak treatment at all. Chardonnay can be both a shape-shifter and the epitome of place and climate. Join our Sommelier, Pam Cohen, in an exploration of 6 different expressions of Chardonnay from around the world!

Date: Wednesday, April 10th 2019

NEWLY ADDED
Daou 2017 Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon (California)
(60% new French oak) Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Intense cherry and red berry scents, along with hints of cracked pepper, pipe tobacco and vanilla. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering concentrated red currant, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that deepen slowly and turn sweeter on the back half. Fine-grained tannins build on a long, spice-laced finish that leaves behind a suggestion of cherry compote. In the context of top-notch California Cabernets, this wine delivers remarkable value.

Score: 91 points -- Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2018

Arrowood 2014 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (California)
Very deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, composed of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 4% Malbec, is scented of red currants, blackberries and wild blueberries with touches of olives and underbrush. Medium-bodied, tightly wound and packed with tense red and black fruits, it has a fine-grained texture and savory finish. 9,600 cases were produced.

Score: 92 points -- Lisa Perrotti-Brown, RobertParker.com, Dec 2017

Primus 2014 The Blend Red (Chile)
Firm and slightly chewy wine with light currant and berry character. Medium body, savory fruit and a fresh finish. Slightly austere. A cabernet sauvignon and carmenere based blend with a dash or petit verdot, merlot and cab franc. Drink now.

Score: 91 points -- James Suckling

Aquilini 2017 Horse Heaven Hills Syrah Rose (Washington)
Bright aromas of Rainier cherry, cranberry and pomegranate, backed by great acidity and loaded with flavors of high-toned red fruit.

-- Seattle Times, Nov 2018

WINES OF THE WEEK
Côte Lavande 2017 Sauvignon Blanc (France)
Spring is in the air and this week we are pleased to offer the Côte Lavande Sauvignon Blanc. Last week we featured the Pinot Noir and it was a hit! Transport yourself to the iconic beaches of Southern France, calmed by blue waves and warm breezes. What you need is an aperitif wine to quench thirst - something light, fruity, and brimming with flavours of fresh ripe grapefruit. Perfect for mingling and seafood salad.

Reg. Price: $19.90 + tax
Terra Andina 2016 Malbec (Argentina)
Like our Malbec World Day tasting on April 13th, the Terra Andina "Rich" Malbec is in many ways an expression of Argentina's lighter side, filled with energy, openness to new ideas, and socializing. On the nose, red and dark fruits combine with a dash of vanilla. Silk soft on the straight-forward palate, with flavours of raspberry, blueberry, plum. Don't overthink this one, just dive in and enjoy!

Reg. Price: $16.49 + tax
Château La Maroutine 2015 Bordeaux Rouge (France)
Since 1789, this family estate has gone through a series of improvements and now the 8th generation is already making their mark. Grapes are from the slopes of Saint Germain de Graves village at the south part of Cadillac. Cherry and strawberry aromas followed by hints of toast. Smooth and round with velvety tannins. Comprised of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. It's not difficult to see why this wine is so popular - it's a terrific value in this price range.

Reg. Price: $21.65 + tax
