The June Club Wines are here and available for club members! Our club meet-up and social is Friday June 4th from 6 - 8:30pm.

Stop by and sign up for the club... or these June Club wines will be available for non-club members starting July 1st (if supplies last). Here are our tasting notes:

Walnut Block Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough, New Zealand)

The Walnut Block is a gorgeous wine with beautiful reflections and shows a lime-golden hue at its core and throughout. Passion fruit, grapefruit and grass aroma are revealed on the nose. It has a clean and silky texture with a pleasing mix of tropical fruit, herbal flavors, and is refined with soft acidity and a mellow, yet graceful lingering finish.

Tomahawk Red Heads Cabernet (McLaren Vale, Australia)

McLaren Vale is renowed for Shiraz but little do many know that it is compromised of Chiefs and Indians, many a Pow Wow and a tall tale has been involved in creating this Cabernet. This 100% Cab is deep red a it’s core and slighly tappers to a solid ruby at the edge. This is a masculine and powerful Cab on the nose with spice, bing cherry and concentrated red fruit and cassis with a hint of cocoa, leather, tobacco and white pepper. Wow, this has a phenominal flavor profile of rich red fruit and dark cherries and has excellent structure, a round and full body with an incredible, long and lingering finish. Big Cab lovers, enjoy!

Cycle Buff Beauty Malbec/Shiraz (South Australia)

Ok, who’s had a Malbec/Shiraz from Australia… and one with legs? It’s almost as raucous as the label with attitude. At a glace, this wine is deep and dark at it’s core, fading to black then brick red at it’s edge. The nose is sweet with infused red licorice and under-ripe plum… the yellow part… a hint of chocolate and a little orange peel too. The palate is round with jammy fruit, warmth, a chewy mouthfeel and a silky tannin structure that opens and evolves with a mocha velvet finish and sweetness.

Fools Bay Dusty’s Desire (Barossa Valley, Australia)

Please make no mistake, this is world class Barossa Valley Shiraz bordering the world renowned Torbreck and Two Hand’s properties. In fact, our tasting spawned a taste off … ok, Torbreck took the hat but seriously for at a minimum of $50 - $80 per bottle less, this is really really good Barossa juice. The nose is black amheryst perfume layered with vanilla and american oak (vanilla bean crème brulee). This Barossa Valley Shiraz is quentesential. Please, write the rest of this story for yourself… we love this wine!!
