Bargain Wines of the Moment
I've had a great week picking out some new wines for our cheap and tasty section as well scouting out other incredible bargains to fill you in on. Like the J Cuvee 20 sparkling at $19.99, maybe the best price in town on this festive, high quality California bubbly.
Paso Robles is always high on my list for high quality zins and petite sirah and these brand spankin' new to the market wines from Le Lapin at $9.99 are a steal!! A second label for Rabbit Ridge winery, they blend different vintages of the left over juice from their higher end wines to produce these deliciously fun wines for everyday drinking. So if ripe black fruit without being overly jammy, a little earthy spice, integrated tannins and a medium finish sound like your kind of wine, check out the le lapin mulitiplicity. We've also got the petite sirah in stock as well, equally as good...
It always amazes me that we can usually get higher quality wines from Europe at better prices than we can from the good old usa. A few things that have new spots on the shelf at the incredible $8.99 price from France are from the reputable Paul Bouchard "Burgundy-Style" Vins de Table & Vins de Pays. The white is dry and crisp Chardonnay blend while the red is rich and fruity with a pleasant bouquet of Pinot Noir, and a smooth, lingering finish.
An old favorite back on the shelves is the J. Moreau & Fils Blanc, an interesting blend of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Folle Blanche, Ugni Blanc & Colombard. Fresh and round with golden apples on the nose and palate, it is the perfect New Orleans summer white, also $8.99!
And there is a lot more where this came from, so come over and check out our cheap and tasty bargains!!
