Our good friend Bob is back showing a line-up of special Easter week selections for your devouring pleasure! Let Bob teach you about wine, and make you laugh - just make sure you don't steal his corkscrew. It's his corkscrew!
2015 Domaine de Piaugier, La Grange de Piaugier Blanc ($15): This lively white has notes of lavender, anise, and pineapple. For a delightful evening, pair this Côtes du Rhône with BBQ chicken!
2015 Luigi Baudana 'Dragon' Langhe Bianco ($23): This unusual fusion of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Nascetta will leave you in a mediative state of bliss. Its minerality is balanced by citrus and ripe peach notes.
2014 Thillardon 'Les Carrieres' Chenas ($23): While this Gamay comes from Chenas, the smallest of the ten Beaujolais Crus, it packs a knockout punch! It's filled with velvety cherry, raspberry, and orange pith notes that will leave you dizzy.
2014 Domaine D'Ouréa Tire Bouchon, Vacqueyras ($12): The name of this wine, Tire Bouchon, literally translates to corkscrew (not Bob's corkscrew). It's spicy and filled with blackberry and plum notes.
2014 G. B. Burlotto, Freisa Langhe ($23): Rich and deep, this Freisa has bold sour cherry and peppery notes with a strong backbone of tannins. Pair this with Osso Bucco or grilled mushrooms.
2009 Château Pedesclaux, Le Haut Médoc de Pédesclaux ($26): This Bordeaux blend has mouthwatering notes of cassis, tobacco, and dark chocolate.
