Molly’s Tasting Bar for Friday, July 7 2017
VINUM CELLARS, CHENIN BLANC, CLARKSBURG, CA Was $16.98 Now $12.98 Save: $4
This crisp white wine has a crystal pale yellow hue. The aromas are brilliant and intense with tropical and citrus zest with linalool and ripe pineapple notes. This wine evolves into a crisp mélange of refreshing fruit from honeydew to citron lemon, ripe kiwi and tart pippin apples. The wine finishes juicy while remaining appropriately acidic and dry with sweet green apple and mango nectar flavors.
VINUM CELLARS, CHARDONNAY, MONTEREY, CA Was $16.98 Now $12.98 Save: $4
This Chardonnay has a medium straw color with aromas of lemon custard, rich vanilla, cream and toasted oak notes. The palate is generous with its layered tropical notes of mango, papaya and pineapple which then transitions into silky rich custard and caramel toffee notes and does so in an integrated fashion. This wine is rich and layered, but relies on the natural acidity from the acidity of the Santa Lucia Highland fruit where daily temperatures are in the 60s and 70s.
VINUM CELLARS, PINOT NOIR, MONTEREY, CA Was $16.98 Now $12.98 Save: $4
This elegant Pinot Noir is a vibrant garnet color and has Burgundian aromas from sweet cherry to spice such as aromas of clove and sandalwood. On the palate, this wine is very supple and generous with ripe cherries and cherry pie flavors with subtle vanilla and toasted oak texturing and flavors. The wine finishes complete with balanced acidity and extracted fruit notes highlighting cherries but also incorporating earthy notes from both terroir and clonal selection which includes Pommard clone 4.
VINUM CELLARS, PETITE SIRAH , CLARKSBURG, CA Was $16.98 Now $12.98 Save: $4
This is the 16th year of producing Petite Sirah from Clarksburg. The color of this beast of a Petite Sirah is deep plum to inky purple. The wine is uber concentrated and ripe with blueberry and boysenberry fruit which are elegantly wrapped in a silky vanilla wrapping. The entry of this dense Petite is both tannic and bold while maintaining a juicy, overripe profile displaying ample acidity to balance the tannins and fruit concentration making it multidimensional and food friendly. The finish is so supple and smooth that you will miss it when it is gone.
