Wine World Third Thursday October 19th 2017 Wines:

Bocelli, Pinot Grigio
Veneto, Italy
2016
Andrea Bocelli loves his white wines, and it shows in their delightfully crisp, complex Pinot Grigio. Grown in the green hills of the Colli Euganei in Veneto, the vines are thick and knotty, averaging about 15 years old, and yielding just enough grapes to make only one bottle of wine per plant. One bottle! With aromas of fresh Meyer lemon, mint, white flowers and sea salt,this wine is zesty, delicious, and made with integrity. Lemon Chicken Piccata, Grilled Halibut with Cilantro Garlic Butter.

Barnard Griffin, Fume Blanc
Columbia Valley, WA
2015
Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of herb, grass, pear and citrus lead to sleek fruit flavors. It shows a lot of elegance but lacks concentration. The 2015 vintage is packed with orange zest, lime, Asian pear andhoneydew melon flavors and aromas. Ultimately refreshing! Finishes with a juicy, cleansing aftertaste. Enjoy this crisp,sunny white as a stand-alone or paired with shellfish or mildly-flavored appetizers.

Montinore, Borealis
Willamette Valley, OR
2015
34% Gewurztraminer, 30% Muller-Thurgau, 28% Pinot Gris, and 8% Riesling. Mouthwatering and multi-dimensional, this perennial crowd pleaser is a blend of cool-climate whites.. Intensely aromatic, with a nose of tropical flowers, ripe kiwi and melon, the silky soft palate is brimming with rose petals, pink grapefruit, mango and white nectarine then finishes on a high, clean note of bright key lime. Organic. Spicy Foods, Fish, White Meats.

Bila-Haut by Chapoutier, Cotes du Roussillon Villages Rouge
Languedoc-Roussillon, France
2015
Berry jam up front, followed by darker plum through the palate peppered with subtle notes of licorice. Velvety tannins offer grippy structure without hindering approachability. Bila Haut is a big boy in Chapoutier’s lineup, showing plenty of black fruit and spice, Pair with a nice cut of beef or Mediterranean food.
RP93 The Wine Advocate
The jaw-dropper in the lineup was the quality of the 2015 Haut Cotes de Roussillon Villages les Vignes de Bila Haut. While the entry level wine from this estate, the quality here is incredible, especially at the price point. Made from 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Carignan from a mix of the estate’s terroirs, aged in concrete tanks and stainless steel, it offers a rich, concentrated and serious feel to go with fabulously pure notes of blackberries, black raspberries, crushed rock and melted licorice. Thick, unctuous and luxuriously textured, this will certainly be the greatest vintage of this cuvee to date.
WS90Wine Spectator
This has finesse, with an iron core surrounded by blackberry, cassis, plum and garrigue flavors. Full tannins offer structure, with details of olive and bay leaf that linger into the savory finish. Drink now through 2020.

Jlohr, Los Osos Merlot
Paso Robles, California
2014
The 2014 J. Lohr Estates Los Osos Merlot presents a mature red color with a raspberry hue. Plummy fruit aromas are integrated with a chocolaty barrel signature of mocha and baking spice. Whole berry fermentation with a generous use of Malbec in the blend accentuates the fine tannins, bright fruit tones and lengthy finish. This Merlot is dark in the glass, with lots of oak, vanilla and caramel aromas against a black-cherry and chocolate-cake backdrop on the nose. Soft and chalky tannins frame the sip, where blueberry, vanilla and chocolate-cream flavors prove lush and inviting. Delicious with summer grilled sausages or herb-roasted chicken.
