Wine     Tasting (sit down)    
It's a wonderful combination: wine and cigars. Shayna has selected four wines and four cigars to pair. Choose which pairing(s) you'd like to try then sit back and enjoy! Pay for your wine and cigar at the event. Here's a preview of what you'll experience at the event: 

Espinosa Crema and First Blush Rose

The Espinosa Crema brand is a premium cigar from the Erik Espinosa portfolio especially made for smokers that enjoy a mellow to medium body Connecticut style cigar. A silky-smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper delivers a buttery and delicious super-smooth experience with slight cedar, hay, and tons of baked bread.

First Blush: Nose: cream, pomegranate, strawberry, black tea with a whiff of bergamot. Palate: crisp, light sweet hickory finish 

Espinosa Habano and Barbera

Each Espinosa Habano cigar starts with a leathery and Flavorful Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. This leaf sits atop a long-Filler bouquet blended for a rich well-balanced smoke. A savory array of smooth, soothing Flavors with prominent notes of pepper, cedar, cocoa, and a creamy semi-sweet Finish, all round out this highly satisfying handmade.

Barbera: Nose: chocolate (dark cacao), black cherry, blackberry, caramel, vanilla, japanese cherry blossom. Palate: expressive dark chocolate, black berry, black cherry, pomegranate, violet, seedy blackberry finish

601 Red Label Habano and La Familia

The 601 Red Label series employ a lustrous, oily Habano wrapper over the brands signature blend of aged Nicaraguan binder and long Fillers, providing the unique, full bodied Cubanesque Flavors. Earth and a rich tobacco sweetness are the core Flavors of these beauties, with buttery smooth notes of cocoa, cedar, and caramel masking some of the strength.

La Familia: Nose: black cherry, crushed red flower petal, orange zest. Palate: black cherry, dried rose and citrus potpourri, licorice root

Isla del Sol and Dulce Roja

Isla del Sol combines a deliciously infused Nicaraguan premium loaded with a rich blend of aged Nicaraguan tobaccos inside a beautiful, chocolate brown, 'Sun-Blessed' Sumatra wrapper. Expect a rich, creamy core with ample notes of mocha and coffee, complemented by a luxurious aroma.

Dulce Roja: Nose: dark chocolate, cooked red fruits, rose, baking spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom). Palate: intentionally sweet dessert style wine that you can still drink with a meal.
