lummi island wine june 1 ’19

Quick note

Thursday night we were camped out of internet range and were unable to publish our weekly blog to reach you on Friday morning as usual. We got home today (Friday) just as Janice was arriving to open the wine shop for Friday Bread pickup at 4pm.

This post is to let you all know that the wine shop WILL be Open Saturday June 1 from 2-6 as usual. This week’s wines (see below) drew lots of positive comments tonight…we hope you will all find time to drop by and try them on Saturday!


This week’s wine tasting

La Torretta Chardonnay ‘17      Italy      $11
Fresh, crisp and bright on the palate with bracing notes of minerality; nose of golden apples and hint of honey. Harmonious and well balanced.

Bieler Rosé ’17      France     $17
Grenache-Syrah blend; soft and bright, with plenty of red-berry and currant flavors. Its fruitiness and balanced acidity make for an immediately attractive, easy wine.

La Torretta Pinot Noir ‘16         Italy      $12
Ruby red color. Medium bodied. Complex aromas and flavors of violets, strawberries, raspberries and vanilla. Soft velvety texture.

Capcanes Mas Donis Old Vines ‘15       Spain       $12
Velvety mouthfeel and texture; wild red and black berry flavors, with cherry, spices and herbs; medium to full-bodied with soft and velvet tannins and nicely refreshing finish.

Corte Volponi Ripasso ’15     Italy    $21
A classic ripasso, with rich nose and flavors, good tannic backbone, and a great pairing for rich Italian fare.
