Keeping the BBQ Season Alive Trio (12 Bottle)
August is in full swing and what better way to celebrate than by firing-up your barbeque (for the 20th time this summer) and serving your thirsty guests some red-hot wines from Italy, Argentina and Oregon.
Wines In Sampler:
|2019 Firesteed Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
The 2019 Firesteed Pinot certainly evokes a Burgundian profile with its earthy and mineral-driven personality. Its silky texture provides a pillow for the big cherry and cranberry fruit flavors, complemented by earth and oak notes. Raise a glass and toast a true Oregon Pinot pioneer.
|2020 Sansedoni Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Italy
The 2020 Sansedoni Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is truly an exceptional wine, from its engaging nose through its long finish. Drinking it is almost like being in Abruzzo.
|2019 Layer Cake Mendoza, Argentina Malbec
Big, brooding, black fruit, then rich earth, truffles and dark cocoa are at the front. The Sea of Stones vineyard is at its core, always evident with the thread of minerality that the deep alluvial cobblestones lend. This wine is elegant in the mouth with fresh-picked blackberries, simmering chocolate sauce on the stove, and somewhere someone’s cooking bacon…so many layers, so little time.
NOTE: Because these wines are all in very limited supply, substitutions for wines similar in character and of equal or higher value may occasionally be made.
