2016 Castel Sallegg Legrein Rosé $12
Notes of raspberry, strawberry, jam, and roast coffee. It is full on the palate, with a fine, well-integrated acidity, a good structure with a pleasant mellowness and a good length. 13% alcohol by volume. Was $17, Now $12
2015 Vidal-Fleury Ventoux $14
60% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre
A Syrah-heavy Southern Rhone Red with fresh berries and spice. Full bodied, ripe and fresh on the palate, driven by berry fruit.
