Whether you’re shopping for great bottles to serve with holiday meals or on the prowl for great wine gifts, we’ve got you covered with this weekend’s free tastings. Join us from 3-7pm on Friday and noon-4pm on Saturday to sample:
Dom d'Ardhuy Savigny les Beaune 1er Cru Aux Clous 2015 - Showing all the radient ripeness of this great vintage, this is full of immediately enjoyable fruit and has great potential to improve over the next few years. From $31.98, a full 30% off, too.
Dom d'Ardhuy Corton Renardes Grand Cru 2014 - This Burghound 90-92 point Grand Cru red Burgundy may need a few years to reach peak, but it's awfully tempting right now. And at 30% off, it's the very rare Grand Cru Burgundy you'll find for under $100 (from $81.98, in fact!).
Tolaini Al Passo di Toscana 2015 - When Wine Advocate's Monica Larner looked at the 93+ rating she'd just awarded this super-Tuscan red and then considered the $27 release price, she gushed, "I highly recommend this excellent value wine." We agree - especially from 40% off and just $15.98!
La Formica Amarone della Valpolicella Superiore 2008 (375ml) - Amarone is normally too young, too big to finish a full bottle, and too expensive. This late release from the winery beats all three of those objections with a decade in bottle, a perfect for two half-bottle size, and a great $24.98 sale price. Super stocking stuffer!
Butler & Nephew 20 Year Old Tawny Port (60ml Tube) - The ultimate stocking-stuffer treat: a fantastic 20 year-old Tawny Port in a cute as a button 60ml glass tube. The last time Wine Spectator reviewed this, it earned a 91 point rating from full bottle. A super-steal from $9.98!
As always, we’ll have some treats from the cheese case out to try with the wines and best pricing available on a mix/match basis during the tasting. Come in, warm up, and chill out!
