Great Picks Under $15
This week, our good friend and former teammate Joe Kent returns to Wine World to lead us through a tasting of some great wines from...
Prestige Beverage Group
When Joe left Wine World, it was to dedicate himself full time to the wholesale supply of fine wines, spirits, and beers as a member of the Prestige Beverage Group.
They define their success by achieving the highest level of customer satisfaction possible, so we understand why Joe fits in so well with them.
Just like his time with us, the customer always comes first! And they constantly strive to exceed your expectations!
Today, Joe's back at Wine World with today's tasting of some fantastic values from his wine portfolio - all well made and great tasting wines for under $15!
We hope you will join us this Saturday afternoon and welcome Joe back! Here's what's on the line up:
2012 Deloach Central Coast Chardonnay - 13.99: DeLoach is one of only a handful of U.S. wineries to have been biodynamic-certified according to the rigorous standards of Demeter, as well as receiving organic certification by CCOF. They show that you can produce lovely wines at affordable prices while still being good stewards of the land that sustains them!
This lovely straw colored Chardonnay offers creamy, tropical aromas with nice depth, and flavors of lemon, pear and pineapple delivered on well balanced acidity. The taste finishes with fresh mineral and crisp apple notes.
2012 Deloach Central Coast Pinot Noir - 13.99: Also from Deloach, we present this ruby colored Pinot Noir. It showcases aromas and flavors of juicy fruit such as strawberry and red cherries, with a hint of gingerbread, along with a well-balanced structure. This wine is medium in body and has a nice long finish.
2009 Villa Puccini Chianti Riserva, DOCG - 14.99: This lovely Tuscan wine is from the heart of the Chianti zone. Made primarily of Sangiovese (90%) blended with some red Canaiolo (10%), it was made in the style of a young Bordeaux - a minimum of one year of aging in large oak casks, plus 3 months more in the bottle prior to release.
This produces pleasant, vibrant, dry and delicious red wine with relaxed tannins. This "Riserva" offers aromas of violets and strawberries opening to a dry, fruity and harmonious taste that leads to a pleasant finish.
2013 Zolo Malbec - 11.99: This 100% Malbec is from the Maipú and Lujan Valleys of Mendoza, Argentina. It pours a deep purple color in the glass, and exudes aromas with a high intensity of black fruits, raspberries and violets. These fruits carry over to the palate and intensify with sweet tannins and licorice notes, culminating in a smooth and harmonious finish.
2013 Urban Riesling - 12.99: This pale straw colored Riesling is from the Mosel region of Germany where slate dominates the soil types on the steep sloping vineyards. It opens with a wet stone and lime like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The taste profile is a tangy orange and tart green apple with notes of lime and minerals, and it finishes semi-dry with nicely prolonged flavors.
