We are getting ready for a great Halloween with a lot of fun, and we'd like to treat you to some great sale prices on some amazing wines from...

 

Michael David Winery  

 

Michael David Winery

Lodi, CA

 

 Michael and David Phillips are two brothers whose family has farmed in the Lodi region since the 1850's, and cultivating wine grapes for nearly a century.

 

Today the 6th generation of Phillips family grape growers continue to emphasize the importance of quality wines with unique and eye catching labels. They are extremely aware of their "carbon footprint", adopting some of the most progressive sustainable farming practices in California!

 

All 750 acres of the family's vineyards are third party certified and as of the 2011 vintage 100% the Lodi grown fruit crushed at Michael David winery was certified sustainable!

 

Tonight, we are happy to present all treats and no tricks, courtesy of Michael David Winery.  Here's what we're tasting this Halloween!

 

2012 "6th Sense" Syrah - $17.99 $15.99:  From a black grape that makes red wine, the 6th Sense remains a huge player in the Michael David lineup. Super-saturated, big and juicy, it makes a bright, tangy impact. Full of flavor in the same deep-red tones as the aromas, tannins are tame. The mid-palate offers plum and blackberry, with a touch of mulberry.

 

2010 "Petite Petit" - $19.99 $17.99:  This blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot offers a joyous explosion of color and taste! It is a substantial, dense, full-bodied style of wine loaded with pure black fruit and vanilla flavors that coat the palate. It exhibits impressive density as well as lots of blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with graphite, licorice and a hint of tar, and remarkable richness with a slightly dry long lasting finish.

 

2011 "7 Deadly Zins" - $17.99:  Old vine Zinfandel taken from 7 superior vineyards, each offering its own level of enjoyment, plus a splash of Petit Sirah makes it fuller and richer with more texture and deeper fruit. It reveals hints of tapenade, new saddle leather, black cherries and black currants. It offers a lot of flavor for its price - even more so when we put it on sale!

 

2012 "Freakshow" Cabernet Sauvignon - $21.99:  This wine is FREAKing amazing! Over each vintage, the intensity has been kicked up exponentially. This 4th incarnation has more of everything... more depth, more ripe fruit, more pizazz! Nicely balanced with notes of pomegranate and smoke wrapped in oak. Warning - it's gulpable!

 

2010 "Inkblot" Petit Verdot - $37.99:  Here's a real treat - intense, yet complex... rich on the attack, and yet very elegant! The grapes for this wine come from Jon Wetmore's "top of its class" vineyard. Every year when compared to other Petit Verdot vineyards, the quality of this lot is unmistakable.

 

Because of the high level of tannin, color, and concentration, this wine is always put into new barrels early in the harvest season. Spice, tangy ripe berries and a touch of licorice are prevalent, but it's in the finish that the fruit really sings. High-toned and vibrant with soft, sumptuous tannic structure.

Happy Halloween!

 

Note:  While Wine World truly enjoys the festivities at this time of year (Halloween is one of our favorite holidays!), and we love the creativity and fun that our customers put into their costumes, we remind you that all masks and "props" must be left outside the store

 

We're sure you understand, and we thank you in advance for your compliance! 

 

This Saturday, Starting at 1:00:

  

Wines from the Cali Coast!

 

Join us this Saturday for a taste of the Coastal Collection from...

 

William Hill Estate Winery

 

William Hill Estate Winery

 Healdsburg, CA

 

The William Hill Estate Coastal Collection brings their signature style from southern Napa to the hidden vineyards of California's North Coast and Central Coast regions. It marks a journey of discovery through Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake and Monterey counties, where hillside and mountaintop vineyards are shaped by the maritime influence of the Pacific Ocean.

 

The new Sauvignon Blanc joins Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon from the North Coast, coupled with a Merlot from the Central Coast, create a foursome of coastal wines that bring Winemaker Ralf Holdrenried's rich, expressive style to some of California's most celebrated regions.

 

Join us this Saturday and taste them all, then save $2 per bottle while we've got them on sale!

 

2013 Sauvignon Blanc - $15.99 $13.99:  This newest member of the Coastal Collection brings a fresh, exuberant style with its aromas of grapefruit and lemongrass, complemented by citrus and subtle mineral flavors. Made from fruit harvested from the North Coastal region, this wine is crisp and lively with a clean finish.

 

2012 Chardonnay - $15.99 $13.99:  This delightful North Coast Chardonnay offers aromas and flavors of ripe tree fruit, underscored by hints of brown spice, citrus and tropical fruit. Hailing mostly from Sonoma and Mendocino, with a touch of fruit from Napa, this well-integrated wine has excellent acidity and a creamy mouthfeel.

 

2012 Merlot - $15.99 $13.99:  This Central Coast Merlot is reminiscent of a bold Cabernet Sauvignon, with its rich flavors and substantial mouthfeel. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry and toasty oak set the stage for a palate of decadent black cherry, pepper and chocolate.

 

2012 Cabernet Sauvignon - $15.99 $13.99:  Made from a blend of predominantly Sonoma and Lake Counties, this North Coast Cab has a rich palate of dark fruit flavors, with subtle hints of caramel and cocoa.

 

The Sonoma fruit provides the blackberry and black cherry flavors, while the Lake County fruit yields tremendous structure and presence to the blend. This Cabernet, which also carries a touch of Merlot to round out the mouthfeel, will reveal more complex layers with time in the bottle.
