Matt is bringing Gérard Bertrand - Cote des Roses Rosé ($16.99) for the host of the Memorial Day party he is attending. The bottle is quite unique with a glass wine stopper and an interesting bottle bottom that resembles a rose. This Languedoc Rosé. A burst of summer fruits, red currant.floral notes and citrus make this a dynamite wine. Fresh, full and it has a great aromatic persistence and balance.
Matt is a big fan of Field Stone Cabernet ($20.99) which hails from Alexander Valley in Sonoma. The seductive nose lures you in with spicy aromas along with black cherry, blackberry and plum. The medium-full bodied Cab is mouthfilling with flavors mirroring the nose. Solid finish with notes of oak and vanilla.
Big and bold is what Matt enjoys in cold weather and Rivallana Rioja ($15.99) fits the bill perfectly. On the nose this wine is exactly what you would want from a good Rioja, with plenty of vanilla coming through from it’s time in oak and spicy fruit emerging at the end. In the mouth, intense red cherry with long oaky tannins that seem to drift off into eternity.
