To Celebrate Renewing the Saturday Wine Tastings the following five wines Gary and Kathleen have selected with Kathleen’s comments offer a wide range of experiences to explore  

Merlin Macon La Roche Vineuse – Burgundy, France, 25.99
crisp, clean, flinty and dry from the famed La Roche Vineuse of southern Macon, chalky Chardonnay made by one of the appellation’s greatest winemakers, Olivier Merlin

Montinore Estate Vivace sparkling wine, Oregon – $21.99
,  Estate-grown, a biodynamically farmed blend of Gewürztraminer, Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Gris and Riesling.  Aromatic and luscious – so refreshing on a summer day!

Karl Lagler Riesling Smaragd, Eimerberg, Austria – $37.99.  One of my favorite wines and certainly my favorite Riesling!  Apricots, white pepper and ginger with plentiful floral notes – a rare Smaragd named after the green – think “Geiko” – lizards that populates the vineyards.  Delicious alone …a wine that elevates every meal.

Poseidon Estate Carneros Pinot Noir – $37.99 – a spicy, velvety pinot, rich with summer berry fruit, aged in Hungarian oak barrels made on premise at the winery, from grapes grown high up on the Obsidian Ridge.  Cool night and warm days make for a complex, layered Pinot Noir.  A great find for grilled salmon or steak salad with mushrooms!  

The Pairing Red Blend – $24.99, a rich, powerful red blend of cabernet, merlot, cab franc, and petit verdot, structured but elegant with black currant, cassis, cedar and leather.  The ideal wine for accompanying a grilled juicy steak!
