Friday Wine Tasting

This week we are featuring a French  Viognier and Cabernet Sauvignon /Cabernet Franc Blend from Argentina.

Vieux Chene Vin De Pays Viognier 

Light yellow straw color with green glints. A fine aromatic wine with aromas of apricots and and Acacia. Long and full on the mouth, awash with citrus and vanilla overtones.

Viognier is a white wine grape variety. It is the only permitted grape for the French wine Condrieu in the Rhône Valley. Like Chardonnay, Viognier has the potential to produce full-bodied wines with a lush, soft character. In contrast to Chardonnay, the Viognier varietal has more natural aromatics that include notes of peach, pears, violets and minerality

 

Vina Alicia 

This is a dark red garnet wine, of good structure and excellent body.  It has dark cherry or black currant maturity.  Time gives it a cedar or cigar box undertones.  Some blueberry and chocolate aromas can be found.  Its tannins are tangible and generous.  Cabernet Franc supplies raspberry, currant leaf and pebble aromas.  Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc
