Cantayano Verdejo 2017
This delivers a deep, complex bouquet with bags of personality, revealing a nose of pear,
peach stone, wild fennel, beeswax, saline and a nice herbal touch of lemongrass.
On the palate, wine is pure, focused and very full-bodied for Verdejo, with a rock solid core, excellent minerality, fresh acidity and outstanding length yet with a youthful finish.
You may call young winemaker, Manuel Cantalapiedra, a rebel or even a freedom fighter
but most importantly he is a farmer with a clear vision for the style of Verdejo he wants
to make in Castilla y Leon. He shares a passion for this grape with his father, who he named
the winery after, and with his neighbors, but this is where the common interest ends
and the rebellion begins. Harvesting later, organically and from single vineyard plots,
his wines demonstrate power and finesse in equal measure.

The entrance to this Beverly Hills Spec House includes a 15 foot waterfall.
Asking $39 Million. https://www.wsj.com/
Turns out the Virus is generating "a lot of interest" as people have realized
they might be inside their houses "for a while." Of course! Build a waterfall!
We think we can give you the same feeling for a lot less!
Cool. Clean. Sparkling. Dry. Exciting. Gorgeous in glass!
This is an extraordinarily unique blend of Portugeiser, Dornfelder and Pinot Noir.
It has a bright, fragrant nose, super creamy mousse with pretty strawberry fruit flavors accented by a hint of lemon zest and a dry, refreshing finish.
It is great on its own, but has the body to complement a variety of foods,
making it an excellent and versatile choice for entertaining
or substituting for a waterfall.
Teaching Moment: Portugeiser: A red Austrian, Slovenian wine and German wine grape found primarily in the Rheinhessen, Pfalz and wine regions of Lower Austria and Slovenia. Despite its name, there is no evidence that the varietal is from Portugal. Usually results in a DRY red wine.

Start the Day Off Right!
Light Sparkling "Dry Creek" Zinfandel
Pét Nat, short for Pétillant Naturel, is French for “natural sparkling.”
This method of making sparkling wine pre-dates the traditional champagne method,
where one takes a fully fermented dry wine and adds yeast and sugar to cause
a secondary fermentation. Instead, the Pétillant Naturel method transfers wine
that is still in its first fermentation to the bottle. This allows the native yeast
to continue fermentation within the bottle and produce carbon dioxide
which creates the delicious bubbles we all love.
Passion fruit and Bing cherry come off the nose of this wine with a distinctive,
wet gravel minerality. Lively in your glass, the wine continues to open
to more complex flavors and aromatics. The palate evokes
a traditional Champagne in weight and fineness of bubbles.
Easy-drinking with fruit forward youth. Fun. Zippy Acidity.
Not new to shop but when it's right, it's right.

BIG "White" DEAL of The WEEK
Familie Bauer Gruner Veltliner
Perhaps no wine says late Spring/Early summer like Gruner Veltliner.
Fresh and fruit forward with a hint of effervescence. Featuring zippy, high toned fruit
and minerality busting out all over. Grapes grown organically
in the centuries old rich soil near the Danube River make for a wine
that presents crisp acidity and solid citrus flavor with a touch of white pepper.
Food friendly but also super easy drinking.

Lindsey Taylor has designed this "May Bouquet"
of Japanese Ranunculus and a bit of Larkspur,
to capture the colors of "Ella"
a 2007 painting by Gerhard Richter.
And to complete the scene:
"A dry and crisp rose wine made with Gamay grapes. Gamay from Beaujolais
with fruitiness, a balanced acidity and minerality, is a perfect varietal to make
a dry French Rose. The nose is very savory, characterized with red berries
and candy notes freshly picked. Finish is fresh and elegant." Winemaker

*** From Carol Shelton ***
Rendezvous with friends over a bottle of chilled dry rosé, the name of our Rendezvous Rosé.
Created from the “pink” juice off of red Carignan grapes a full three days after crushing them,
fermented cold like a white wine to retain every drop of crisp strawberry fruitiness.
Winemaker: Winemaker's Notes: Light cranberry color, juicy strawberry-watermelon
fruit aromas, nice mineral, nice lift of springflowersand fresh zest from cara-cara oranges,
tangy vanilla creme frache on strawberry shortcake! Refreshingly crisp and dry,
mouth-watering actually. Great with almost any food, from sushi to salmon to Bbq!
Don't forget it's Big, Bold Partner!
