WINE CLUB February 2017 Selections

“The first rule of WINE CLUB is… ALWAYS talk about WINE CLUB!”
The Wine buyers (Andrew and Dale) pick two wines each month for you that we love, and you will too. One white (or rose, or bubbly) and one red. The total value of wines will exceed $40 (usually between $45 and $50) and the longer you sign up for, the better the deal! (see below for pricing and perks)

Au Bon Climat Santa Barbara Chardonnay 2014
Au Bon Climat began making wine in 1982, focusing on Burgundian varietals made in a classic style. This is a beautiful Chardonnay, elegant bright citrus, slight minerality, with only a hint of oak. We had the previous vintage of this wine in a seminar a little over a year ago and liked it very much then. I recently took a bottle of the 2014 home and Amy and I were blown away by how lovely this wine was!
Will go great with shellfish in a light buttery sauce, a little garlic, zucchini and tomato, Baked Chicken with parmesan, sauteed white mushrooms, and asparagus.
Tikal Patriota 2013
60% Malbec, 40% Bonarda,
We tasted this just about a week ago with several really nice wines from South America, there wasn’t a bad wine in the bunch, but this really stood out as a special wine, and an interesting blend! Big Dark and Brambly, dark cherry nose, blackberry and licorice on the palette, a nice touch of spiciness, and a long finish that stays and stays, Finishes with a soft acidity that balances the generous fruit and some fairly hefty tannins. This wine should age well for several years as the tannins soften and the fruit mellows, but it’s wonderful now!! Drink this with grilled or smoked meats, grilled lamb in particular will go great with this. The spiciness and bold fruit will make this a great pizza wine as well!
