We love finding new wines for the shop and are particularly excited about a couple new ones coming tomorrow, January 13th 2012.
Big Vine Pinot Noir Arroyo Grande 2009, $14.99
California’s Central Coast certainly produces great Pinot Noir. It also produces some pretty uninteresting Pinots, especially when you hit the under $20 mark. This amazing effort at $14.99 carries plenty of ripe fruit and spice with a silky soft texture, all balanced by zippy fresh acidity that keeps the wine classy and stylish and elegant.
R. Stuart Big Fire Pinot Gris Oregon 2010, $17.99
R. Stuart wines have certainly had their fare share of acclaim. It was exciting news when the wines came to Vermont and even more exciting to taste the Big Fire line, their entry wines. The Big Fire Pinot Gris is a breath of fresh air in the world of Pinot Gris. Bright, crisp flowery fruit bursts from the glass. On the palate the fruit has to share the spotlight with dusty minerality that balances out the pretty fruit. This is one heck of a vibrant wine.
