Greetings all! Tonight at Zizzo’s Coffee we’re featuring two wonderful wines during Happy Hour (4p – 7p).
First up is a delicious Sauvignon Blanc from Shug Winery:
This 2012 wine is sourced from the cooler vineyards in the southern end of the Sonoma Coast AVA. The Hi-Vista vineyard in western Carneros and the Grossi vineyard north of Petaluma contribute spice and bright tangy acidity. The Leveroni vineyard south of Sonoma contributes the unique floral character of the Sauvignon “musque” clone. The resulting blend has a bouquet of nectarine and grapefruit zest, leading to lush fruit flavors of kiwi, lime and grapefruit. It finishes with a refreshing minerality and zesty acidity.
This wine won a gold medal in Sunset Magazine’s 2013 Wine Competition, and a double gold at the California State Fair and was voted “Best Sauvignon Blanc of California.”
Next up is a 2009 Petite Sirah from EOS Estate in Paso Robles:
Paso Robles is one of the greatest places on earth for Petite Sirah. Inky purple in color, the 2009 possesses powerful aromas of cherry compote, black pepper, brown sugar, and grilled meat. On the palate, the wine is full bodied with more cherry fruit, followed by toasted almonds and espresso.The tannins are ample, but tempered by a silky, fruit-driven finish.
So, what’s the coolest part about both of these wines, you ask? How about their Happy Hour price of only $5 a glass!
An excellent price for some very fine wines. You really need to get down here tonight!
See you soon.
