April Letter From The Liquor Store Staff...

Steele Writers Block Counoise -2011 Regular Price $16.99
A medium to full bodied red wine, with good complexity of aromatics and a supple mouth-feel. More nuttiness than outright oak on the bright nose, with some different red and darker fruits appearing, as well, a consistent toasted granola or cereal profile (consistent with past vintages). A slight meatiness (pleasant really!) consistent with warm-hot fermentations appears, while a toasted granola or cereal, fruit, and some spice quickly become more dominant. Slightly rustic tannins on the dry finish with an integrated, not outright acidic, supple balance. The wine was aged in French and Hungarian (20% new) barrels for approximately 8 months. The aging period was carried out with an extended period on the fine lees to both soften and protect the young wine. A fairly low level of SO2 was maintained throughout this period to aid in the development of secondary and tertiary aromatic and flavor components. After 8 months the wine was clean-racked to tank, where small quantities of Grenache and Syrah were blended to the Counoise, before aging another two months in barrel prior to bottling.
Hermanos Malbec Tannat -2010 Regular Price $15.99
Intense red color with purple hues. Aromas of ripe red fruit with notes of dried fruits. Great structure, round and with a long finish in the mouth. We recommend popping the bottle thirty minutes before consumption and serving slightly below room temperature. Our favorite pairings are a flank steak or a lamb cassoulet, though it goes surprisingly well with tandoori chicken. As you drive into Cafayate in the Calchaquí Valley, you encounter a combination of red rock outcroppings, candelabra-shaped cacti, and sprawling vineyards. Just outside this small, picturesque mountain town, you will find a small, new winery with a panoramic view built on a hillside covered in cacti, dry rock and sand, and now vineyards. Domingo Molina is a family winery managed by three brothers (Osvaldo, Gabriel & Rafael Domingo) who grew up in Cafayate, and their winery represents the second generation of Domingo brothers making wine together. The name Hermanos translates to “brothers”. Their high altitude vineyards are located between 5,300 and 7,300 feet above sea level and are fed by the ultrapure water that percolates through the mountains just above. This extreme altitude and 340 days of sunshine yield wines with intense aromas and soft tannins which are a pleasure to drink.
Riebeek Cellars Pinotage 2010 Regular Price $10.99
The flavors of this unique South African grape varietal are complex and exciting with ripe plum and fruitcake all beautifully integrated and then finished with subtle oak for a lingering aftertaste. Lovely with rare beef, barbecued lamb and casseroles. This versatile lighter style of Pinotage is also a lovely combination with spicy chicken.

$20 Red Wine Cinder Cab/Merlot - 2009 Regular Price $27.99
Raspberry, vanilla, clove and bay leaves mingle in a heady perfume. Ruby color and a medium body with a long elegant finish. Hand harvested. Fermented in 1 ton bins with 4 punch-downs per day. 10% of batches native yeast fermentation. Bladder pressed after an average 7 days of skin contact. Malolactic fermentation in barrel. 21 months of barrel aging in barrels of French and Hungarian origin, 40% new oak. Sourced from Skyline, Williamson, Sawtooth and Symms vineyards.
Wine maker notes
“Several vineyard sources add layers of flavor and texture to this blend. You’ll find aromas of dried cherries and vanilla followed by a burst of Marion berry in the mouth and a smooth dense texture. Open a bottle and appreciate how the flavors evolve through the evening.” - Melanie Krause, Winemaker
Pairs great with a variety of meats and game, salmon and trout. Some of our favorites: Pork loin with raisin compote or slow braised buffalo short ribs.
