La Cartuja Priorat 2016 750mlBrilliant ruby. Ripe dark berries, licorice, smoky minerals and a hint of succulent flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy, round and open-knit; a peppery note adds lift and cut to warm blackberry, bitter cherry and licorice pastille flavors. The long, mineral-accented finish shows very good focus and closes on a youthfully tannic note, leaving cherry pit and floral notes behind.
La Antigua Clasico Rioja Reserva 2010 750mlVivid ruby-red. Ripe red berries, violet and cracked pepper on the nose; a vanilla nuance emerges with aeration. Seamless in texture and appealingly sweet, offering pliant raspberry and cherry flavors and a hint of mocha. Closes smooth and fruity, with subtle tannins coming in late. Food Pairings: This wine pairs well with braised meats, roasted mushrooms, stewed beef, duck and game.
Nortico Alvarinho 2018 750mlTASTING NOTES: Creamy citrus oil, lime and yellow apple notes are nicely spiced and detailed with saline mineral and floral underpinnings through the long finish. - Gillian Sciaretta PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: This is a young, fresh white wine with the characteristic bright acidity and aromas of peach and grapefruit. At only 12.5 % alcohol, Nortico is light and delicate, lovely as a "porch-sipping wine" to drink on its own. Have it simply with corn bread and butter like country folks do in Portugal. Also a terrific seafood wine, particularly with salty, fattier dishes like fish tacos or broiled oysters. Recommended serving temperature is 50F (10C) so the citrus and fruit aromas are well present.
