Shifts and Sauvignon - You are invited!

As we prepare for our Shifts and Sauvignon - Sip and Shop (what a tongue twister) we thought we would fill you in on the delights of our featured wines.






I am traditionally a red wine kinda girl but as the seasons change and start to get warmer I gravitate more to the whites and this white has me feeling all springy. I cant wait to share this one with my girlfriends on the beach this summer. The gracious sommeliers at Checkered Past Winery filled us in on some of the wine notes:

The Mouton Cadet, Sauvignon Blanc from Bordeaux, France is described as a glittering straw yellow. Fresh and elegant nose combines with Typical Sauvignon Blanc aromas with typical notes of grapefruit and white peach.

Now if that doesn't say summer......

Given that we aren't quite there yet, for the realist among us who still feel the chill and need something with a little more body as I do for the cooler days.

The Californian Cabernet Sauvignon from Ravage - wine makers who are self described as Dark, Rich and Audacious. A 2014 vintage that is warm and dry with dark berries layered with luscious vanilla and mocha to round out the palate.

I look forward to sharing a glass or two with you....
