Please visit us in the Sage Gourmet Wine Cellar this Saturday, July 25th from 2-5:00 for a wine tasting (free) as we welcome Mountain Brook Vineyards! The Lanahans first planted root stock in 2002 and have just started making wines. All of their wines are made from 100% hand-harvested North Carolina grapes and are aged in oak and stainless steel. We will be tasting their Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
This 2012 Chardonnay won a silver medal at both the 2014 San Francisco International Wine Competition and the 2014 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition.
Chardonnay fruit notes wrap around mellow oak and lemongrass aromas. Sweet vanilla and lemon flavors intertwine and float over a long acidic finish.
The Cabernet Sauvignon:
This 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon won a bronze medal at the 2014 San Francisco International Wine Competition. Aroma of bright fruit cherry, hint of oak.
Flavor: Big berry flavors, full mouthfeel and strong but smooth tannic on the finish.
Soft oak with cherry/berry undertone and a hint of citrus.
Flavor: Carmel and ripe dry fruit layered over big body mid plate and a soft tannic finish.
Hope you can join us for this special event!
Cheers! Chrissy, Laurie and Keith
