Ep 047 – Four Wines, January 2017 Edition

This week is another four fabulous wines that we loved! Check out the tasting notes and details.


Kenwood Cabernet Sauvignon 2011– priced around $16. This Sonoma County wine is deep and dark in color with a intense nose of violets and blackberries. It’s dry with medium acidity and tannins and flavors of blueberries, blackberries, black pepper, dried herbs, dust and a little vanilla on the finish. It’s yummy and mellow, a great winter sipping wine that can be enjoyed with or without food. This is a wine that you can enjoy a relaxing evening with next is a warm fireplace with a good book or movie.






Cantina Di Sorbara Emma Lambrusco NV – priced around $14. This medium sweet red wine is sparkling thanks to second fermentation with nose of cherries and strawberries. This wine has flavors of cranberries and cherries with medium acidity. It’s light-hearted, fun and rustic. This is your party wine.If you want to learn more about Lambrusco check out our episode.










Château La Freynelle 2015 – priced around $11. This wine was a free sample wine. This white Bordeaux is so good, it’s youthful with aromas of flowers and stone fruit. This dry wine has high acidity (it needs food) and medium body with flavors of flowers, citrus and dried herbs with a medium finish. What a lovely wine, very french and almost perfume like. 







Chapelle St. Arnoux Cotes du Rhone 2014 – priced around $10. This wine’s nose is cherry and dried herbs with flavors of black plum, blackberries, and tobacco. It’s dry with medium acid and tannins. It’s bitter and darker than the Cote du Rhones we had in the past.
