Featured Wines: 9/11 Tasting
This week's virtual wine tasting is taking us to España, to try two delicious and light Spanish wines. These both pair great with tapas and light appetizers, or go great with meals of seafood or grilled meat.
Virtual Tasting: Friday September 11th at 4:00pm (Mountain Time)

This delicious Verdejo is a mouth full of big fruit. So clear in color, it is almost crystalline in appearance. It’s flaxen, with green inflections, and boasts clean, crisp aromas of lemonade, dried grass and fresh thyme. The lithe and vibrant palate feels silky at the core before a surprisingly firm tannic character brings along a pleasantly clean sensation. There’s a modest finish of juicy green apple, sweet juicy peach and an exciting hint of citrus peel that will have you talking.
Deeply colored, with characteristic bright garnet tones of Monastrell, this wine’s nose dances nicely between forest fruits and floral notes of violet and lavender; with a background of peach, one of the most precious characteristics of balance and maturity in Monastrell. The palate is firm, medium structure with a very pleasant acidity. Intense and jammy, these hardy grapes produce wines that are inky dark and bursting with dried red and black fruits like blackberry preserves and chocolatey plums.
