Friday, July 7 from 4-7 p.m. – Stop by the store to sample the wines from Foxglove, California’s undisputed top value brand! Trust me folks, it’s nearly impossible to find under-$20 California wines that “behave” like these. Taste them and you’ll see what I’m talking about!
Brothers Jim and Bob Varner created the Foxglove line of wines to demonstrate that great California wines don’t have to cost a lot of money. By sourcing fruit from vineyards throughout the Central Coast and using little or no new oak, they are able to produce pure, fruit driven, and delicious wines that sell for a song. Robert Parker says “(t)hese are absolutely spectacular bargains from the very high-quality Varner Winery in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This is their less expensive line-up of wines, and I encourage readers to try them – they are true winners.” Join us as we try all three of their wines. 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. 2014 Foxglove Chardonnay (Central Coast, California) – This stainless steel fermented, non-malo Chardonnay is consistently one of California’s great white wine values. Moderately rich, but light on its feet, it displays lovely notes of white peach, apple blossom, lemon oil, mint and subtle spice notes.
90 points Vinous Media, 90 points The Wine Advocate.
2. 2015 Foxglove Cabernet Sauvignon (Paso Robles, California) – This one always hovers around the 90 point rating, and I personally think it’s deserving of that score. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from 25 year old vines located in Paso Robles, it is fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel. The resulting wine is pure and full flavored with notes of dark berries, mint, herb and spice. 89 points Vinous Media, 88 points The Wine Advocate.
2. 2013 Foxglove Zinfandel (Paso Robles, California) – This is my personal favorite of the bunch as this Zin really shows old-school character and purity. Like the Cab, it is from a 25 year old vineyard in the northern part of Paso Robles and it is fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel. Lush, spicy, rich and easy drinking, this one coats the palate with flavors of briary red fruit, pepper, and spice. 88 points Vinous Media, 88 points The Wine Advocate.
