Southern AZ wine event: October 8th at 6:30 PM

24 September 2010
2007 Rancho Rossa, Casa Cuvee (Marsanne/Roussane)
A blend of Marsanne and roussane, fermented in American oak for 11 months. Ripe pear and tropical fruit 
flavors with a touch of toast. 

2009 Kief Joshua, Chenin Blanc
A very aromatic and easy drinking white, with aromas of apple and honey. The apple reverberates on the 
palate with pleasant lemon and subtle grassiness. 

2008 Canelo Hills, Sunrise(Nebbiolo/Syrah)
Bright ruby color with faint violet, raspberry and tart cherry nose, this is a blend of Nebbiolo and Syrah
in roughly equal proportions. It tastes of pomegranate and cranberry with a clear, crisp, acidic finish. 

2007 Charron Vineyards, Syrah
This Syrah has a nice inky black color and oaky backbone. Very similar to a fine Australian Shiraz. 
Full-bodied with a touch of sweet blackberry fruit wraps it all up nicely.

2010 Shadow, (fortified port style wine)

Too hot for desert?  Janice has the Answer.

Hot Summer  Therapy!

Calling all Chocoholics! Endorphin Firecracker!

Your Gluten Free Request is here.

This is a GREAT  start anyway.

ChocoVine is a fine French Cabernet subtly combined with a rich dark chocolate from Holland, paired together to create a decadent, silky smooth drink. It can be served on the rocks or as the main ingredient to an array of sinful cocktails.

Bring your ladyfriends, we have the cure!
