Friday Tastings in Richmond

Here is the info on tastings tonight in Richmond. I know that there are more, but these are the only two that I get emailed information about on their Friday tasting offerings.

At the Wine Cellar, Jeff will be offering up value wines from Chile as well as the D’Arenberg Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia. Come check it out, FREE from 5:00 to 8:00 tonight.

And on the other side of the river at River City Cellars is their FREE tasting that will be tonight from 5:00 – 7:00.

Nessa 2007 Albarino: Crisp and fragrant, this dry white wine produced in the temperate and verdant Rias Baixas appelltation of northwestern Spain has flavors that recall apricots and nectarines.

Medina 2007 Rueda: Citrus skin, melon and herbal notes characterize some of the aromas of this dry but rich white wine made from the Verdejo grape in the Rueda zone north and west of Madrid.

Marques de Caceres 2007 Rioja Rosado:  Produced in Rioja, Spain’s most famous wine region, this dry yet fruity rose has strawberry and floral notes.  
Arbanta 2007 Rioja Tinto:  This medium-bodied, flavorsome red is made from Spain’s reigning indigenous varietal, Tempranillo.  

Loma Gorda 2005 Almansa Tinto:  Full-bodied red from southeastern Spain made from 65% Garnacha (Grenache) and 35% Syrah.


Lots of good juice to sample, as well as the multiple other FREE tastings around town to help you expand your palate and fall in love with new wines.  If any of the other shops in town want me to post their tasting lists, feel free to shoot me an email and I will put it up.
