Sunday, January 21
1 to 4pm
At the Bar

On Sunday we’ll explore the outer limits of what most know about Argentina! It’ll be an opportunity to taste two very unique wines, but these aren’t the typical Malbec and Torrontes! These are awesome, underrated grapes from one of Argentina’s hallmark wine regions.

2016 Mendel Semillon
On Sale $22.99
Plenty of cooked apples, lemon rind and wax aromas follow through to a full body that’s layered and rich. Serious semillon, as always. Drink now.

2014 Catena Cabernet Franc, San Carlos, Argentina
On Sale $22.99
(from a 1999 planting): Enticing aromatic lift to the aromas of purple fruits, violet and brown spices. Suaver than the Agrelo Cabernet Sauvignon, offering exhilarating cut and penetration and an ideal balance between sweetness and suppleness of fruit and acidity. Savory, plush and ripe for all its energy. Finishes with big but thoroughly ripe, dusty tannins and excellent breadth and length. Terrific berry intensity here.
