James Barlow’s ‘Steals of the Month’ for July 2013

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

The summer heat is melting our every move.  I cannot help but think of several steals that will keep you all chilled with your wine selections.  I am a large advocate of deliciously dry Rose this time of year.  I am teaching a class at Crescent Moon Wine Bar entitled ‘Dry Rose: The Perfect Summer Companion’ on Wednesday, July 24th from 7-9pm. Don’t miss out! RSVP to 281-364-9463.

Trocard Cabernet Rose 2011
Bordeaux, France 
Cash Price $8.99

Ripe Strawberry and Red Cherry dance into notes of bees honey and fresh meadow flowers.  Notes of Rose petals and tart cranberry tickle the taste buds with clean acids.

Hill Company ‘Little Rascal’s’ Sauvignon Blanc 2011
Napa Valley, California
Cash Price $9.99

Freshly cut grass sings into notes of guava and stone fruits.  Notes of lemon citrus sing through zesty acids.  Awesome Summer White!

Marques de la Concordia Tempranillo 2011
Rioja, Spain
Cash Price $8.99
I have been enamored by this winery for many years and am completely impressed with their new offering.  Black Plum and Currant sink into smidgeon of vanilla and cedar. This is the next Big Table Wine Red!
