Saturday’s Pourings include:
THE MICHAEL SHAPS COLLECTION - France & Virginia, USA
-Michael Shaps, Petit Manseng, Charlottesville , VA, USA, 2018, Alc. 13%, Varietal: Petit Manseng, Tasting: This wine is our heaviest white and is structured like a Chardonnay. It transmits an exotic flavor, hinting of grilled pineapple and mango. It is very aromatic, with a bright, tropical and pleasant acid on the finish that balances out the up front weight. Pairs well: with shellfish and chicken dishes…. $29.99
-Michael Shaps, Bourgogne Aligote, “Bouzeron Les Clous” AOC, Burgundy Fr. 2020, Alc. 13%, Varietal: Aligote, Tasting: This Aligoté comes from two vineyard sites—one in Savigny-les-Beaune and the other in Bouzeron. The bright fruit notes express citrus and honeysuckle, while the palate has the crisp varietal acidity and good balance and length that is attributed to the pre-fermentation maceration. Pairs well: cured meats, pasta with clams, rich fish (salmon, tuna), shellfish, mild and soft cheeses….$24.99
-Michael Shaps “ Wild Meadow Vineyard Chardonnay”, Shenandoah, VA., Alc. 13.5%
Varietal: Chardonnay Tasting: This is a fantastic wine. Complex for a white with pear and honeysuckle notes, and a run of flavors from beginning to aftertaste. Pale lemon in color with a developing medium plus intensity nose. Green apple, lemon, pear, vanilla, spice, coconut. Dry, medium bodied, medium alcohol plus intensity on the body. Buttered popcorn, vanilla, pear, lemon, toast. Truly a unique wine. Drink now but suitable for aging. Pairs well: mushroom risotto, lobster, shrimp and halibut… $27.99
Michael Shaps Petit Verdot, Monticello, VA, USA, Alc. 13.5%, Varietal: Petit Verdot, Tasting: Bold, structured…whiffs of smoke and dark-roast coffee meander pleasantly amid bright red-cherry and licorice flavors in this full-bodied Petit Verdot. The palate is woody and shows abundant tannins, but it's elegantly concentrated, finishing on an earthy note. Pairs well: beef / prime rib, venison, elk, roast lamb Rating: Wine Enthusiast 89 …$27.99
Shilda, Saperavi, 2019, red, Kakheti, Georgian Republic, Alc.12.5%, Varietal: Saperavi, Tasting: Powerfully aromatic herbs, blackberry, blueberry, black cherry. On the palette red plum, red currant, black cherry, chalk, menthol, eucalyptus, and a bit of “coconutty” oak flavor. Acid is bright and with tannins that are super fine grained. Can go toe-to-toe with Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux or a good Chianti. Pairs well: loves savory cuisine, match to duck, goose and game birds….$14.99
Carol Shelton “Wild Thing”, Old Vine Zinfandel, Mendocino County, 2018. Alc. 14.5%
Varietal: Blend - Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah, Tasting: Aromas of black cherry, ripe plum and raspberry fruit combine with a hint of cigar box, and vanilla-oak baking spice loveliness. Smoothly textured in mouth, and the palate it’s creamy and round, with a finish that is long with lush jammy fruit. Pairs well: lamb chops, lamb shank, ribeye roast…versatile with food.
