Free on Fridays Wine Tasting this Friday, April 1st from 4-7 pm featuring the new vintage of the Precious Syrah along with a couple of other delicious Spanish wines!!! Please note that we are extremely excited to share the 2013 Precious Syrah with you, but we will only be able to open 1 bottle of this extravagant wine. Our advice is to get to the store early to guarantee that you get a taste of this incredibly lush and decadent red wine. Of course we’ll have some other great Spanish wines open as well. Trust us, we won’t leave you dry even if we do run out of the Precious Syrah early. Stop by, taste, learn and save up to 20% off on all of the featured tasting wines.
All of the featured tasting wines are on sale the day of the tasting: take 10% off if you mix any 3, 15% off if you mix any 6, or 20% off if you mix any 12.
1. 2015 Ostatu Rioja Blanco (Rioja, Spain) – Year in and year out, Ostatu makes one of the best white wine values on the planet. Made from a blend of 60-70 year old Viura and Malvasia grown in chalky/clay soils, the wine is fermented in stainless steel and bottled without any further aging. Boasting notes of bright lemon along with some richer, lusher fruit nuances and chalky minerality, it’s kind of like Sauvignon Blanc with a little more weight and complexity.
Tasting Price: $12.59/bottle | $11.89 in mixed six packs | $11.19 in mixed cases
2. 2014 Coto de Hayas Garnacha/Syrah (Campo de Borja, Spain) – Bodegas Aragonesas is one Northern Spain’s largest cooperatives, and their wines represent some of the best bang for buck you can find in the world. Their 2014 (the new vintage for those who have been buying this for some time) is a blend of 70% Garnacha and 30% Syrah fermented entirely in tank. Ripe, plush, juicy, and infused with peppery spice, this guzzle worthy red is an absolute no-brainer!
Tasting Price: $8.99/bottle | $8.49 in a mixed six pack | $7.99 in a mixed case
3. 2013 Precious Syrah (Murcia, Spain) – This is one of the biggest, lushest, most hedonistic wines you’ll ever try! From an old vine Syrah vineyard in Southern Spain, the wine is aged for a full 24 months in used 20 year Pappy van Winkle bourbon barrels. We’ll open one bottle each year to share with the public so get by early to taste this mammoth red wine! Trust us, we’re having no problem selling this one, but we’re having such a good year that we want to share this special treat with you!
One Day Tasting Price: $39.99/bottle — wine must be picked up or paid for on Friday to get this price.
