Wine World Wines Friday August 3rd, 2018:

Vina Eguia Rioja Blanco 2015 Rioja, Spain
100% Viura. This wine is a bright pale yellow color with greenish reflections. The fruit in the nose and palate are fresh, with notes of pear, apple and citrus. The palate is juicy, with floral hints. The mouthfeel is round and vibrant and the finish is fresh and pleasant.
This wine is best served with pastas in light sauces, fried and steam fish, sushi and all kinds of salads. Ideal by-the-glass as an aperitif, served chilled.

Two Angels Sauvignon Blanc 2017 High Valley, CA
This fruit-forward wine shows great intensity as it is poured into the glass, with hints of grapefruit, pear, honeysuckle, and citrus blossoms to name a few. A little sur lies aging adds a little weight to the mid-palate without sacrificing the refreshing crispness form entry to long, lingering finish. Added flavors of honeydew melon and mineral notes are evident on the palate.
Serve slightly chilled, a great accompaniment to fish and shellfish.

Torresella Prosecco NV Veneto, Italy
100% Glera. The aroma brings a fragrance of spring flowers, pear and apple, while on the palate, a fine string of bubbles is your first indication of the quality of this Prosecco. The flavor is soft, with a creamy fruitiness that hints of almond. This wine is great as an apéritif or with dry sweets and soft cheeses. Serve well chilled. 90pts W&S

Domaine Roman Pinot Noir 2016
A complex nose of smokey red fruit, vanilla and mild peppery spice. A core of plum, cherry and raspberry fruit with added characters of spices and vanilla on the palate, the wine is backed with a long, lingering, finish. Roasted or BBQ meats and fuller flavored cheeses.

Marietta Old Vine Red Lot 67 Sonoma County, California
Old Vine Red is a proprietary red wine made to replicate the field blends of many of the old vineyards in Sonoma and Mendocino Counties. Predominantly comprised of Zinfandel, Old Vine Red combines pure fruit, a supple mouth feel and a rich, solid structure. A groundbreaking combination of varietals and multiple vintages first produced in 1982, this wine has blazed the path for red blends for decades. With a historic underground following, it is one of the longest lasting and best known red blends produced today. Marietta’s flagship NV Old Vine Red Lot Number 67 is a combination of wine from the 2016, 2015, and 2014 vintages. 60% aged in neutral barrels and 40% aged in stainless steel. Dry, fruit-forward, rich, supple.
Ripe, juicy fruit and a lush mouth feel are the hallmarks of Old Vine Red, with peppery spice and dusty earth adding an extra level of richness. Moderate but focused tannins ensure this blend will stand up to almost any food.

Cleto Chiarli Lambrusco, NV Emilia-Romagna, Italy
Deep colour which foreshadows intense, but never excessive scents. It combines roundness and austerity, telling in detail of its terroir. Passionate. Pasta, charcuterie and, in general, traditional dishes from Emilia. (Cured Meats, Parmesan, Balsamic Vinegar)
