On Saturday, I’ll be opening three Malbecs for a free tasting. You will be able to compare two Argentinian Malbecs (a regular and a Reserva) with one from Cahors, France.
Tasting will be done blind so you won’t know which one you are trying – let your senses guide you as to the wine you most prefer.
We’ll have the bottles open from 2pm to 5:30pm (If I have wine left, I’ll continue after LUTC).
Although this is a drop in tasting as usual, I’d appreciate an RSVP by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or a phone call to the store (604) 947-2729 to let us know you intend to come and if you are bringing anyone with you.
Domaine Marcilhac Cuvée Prestige – super French red from Cahors the spiritual home of Malbec. Tasted this last month and thought it ideal for Malbec fans interested in expanding their horizons. 100% Cot noir (malbec). Produced and bottled en domaine.
Ironstone Reserve Rous Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel – Tasted this at the Zinfandel Advocates and Producers (ZAP) tasting and was simply the best of the eight super wines presented in my opinion. This is a single vineyard product produced from vines planted in 1909. Perfect Christmas present for the Zin Fan – not widely available either.
Bleasdale Langhorne Crossing Generations Shiraz – A rich, cellarable Aussie red. Will be opening a bottle for tasting Christmas week.
Will have lots of new wines at end of this week and in next 3 weeks too. Swing by and check out our selection
