February 2014 Table Club & Cru Club Selections

Cru Club Selections
La Mondianese Barbera Superiore

A gorgeous bouquet, suggestive of currants, dark cherries and chocolate; in the mouth it is rich, full and velvety with a hint of dark berries and spicy overtones. Perfect accompaniment to a rich pasta, roast lamb or beef.

Tukma Gran Corte Red Blend

65% Malbec, 20% Tannat and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. Its intense red color with violet edges gives hints of what kind of wine is to come, and its complex aromas and flavors are of ripe and less ripe red fruits, red pepper, Asian spices, and mocha. It seems to go on forever on the finish. Only 10,000 bottles were produced.

Table Club Selections

Zoe White

The color of this Greek white is bright yellow, with green hues.  The nose is fresh with hints of fruit and avacado.  Flavors of orange and lemon blossom.

Zoe Rose

Aghiorghitiko 70%, Moscofilero 30%.  Vibrant red berry fruits, crisp acidity, elegant palate.

Gran Passione Rosso

Intense red-purple color, tending towards amber with ageing. The wine is full-bodied with good structure. Palate of ripe red and black fruits, fantastic accompaniment to roasted or grilled meats.

Crios Limited Red Blend

Deep ruby color with bluish hues.  Nose of black plums coming from Malbec, cherries from Bonarda, and black fruits from Tannat.  Dense and complex on palate, finishes smooth.
