New Arrivals with "Weekend" George


A Smattering Of New Arrivals with
the One and Only

Weekend George

Saturday, February 11th


Here they are:

Barwick Estate Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon '10
Western Australia's take on the Bordeaux Blanc blend is full of gooseberry and green bean character. Partial barrel fermentation adds bottom and complexity. Very cool stuff.

Inama Soave Vigneti di Foscarino '09
Soave achieves new heights with this producer. You'll be tasting single-vineyard Soave with considerable lees contact. 12.5% alc. This is not your grandmother's Soave Bolla!

Vignerons de St-Tropez Rosé Cuvee Cep d'Or '11
We've had quite a run with this Cotes de Provence rosé over the years. It's a favorite in our annual rosé mishmash, and we are premiering 2011 rosés with this fresh release.

Brassfield Estate Pinot Noir '10
David Ramey strikes again, this time with a beautiful and affordable Pinot from a single vineyard in California's High Valley AVA, in eastern Lake County. Very seductive.

Massoferrato Rosso Impruneta '09
Sangiovese from Tuscany doesn't often taste this dynamite for less than twenty bucks. This is where it pays off to search deep into the wine market. Tiny importer, quality juice.

Robert Oatley Tempranillo '09
The sub-appellation of King Valley in Southern Australia's Victoria region is home to grape varieties that you would not expect. How about a bold and beautiful Tempranillo?

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
