September 7th, 4:30 pm-6:30 pm: Murphy Goode Tasting
Come on in for a FREE tasting of Murphy-Goode wines. We will be tasting Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. Murphy-Goode is a family-run winery that was founded in 1985 in Sonoma County and has been going ever since. In 2001, Dave Ready, Jr. took over as the wine maker. The winery became a part of the Jackson Family Wine in 2007, giving them an even greater resource to great vineyards from all over California.
Pinot Noir: Our 2013 California Pinot Noir comes from vineyards up and down the coast of California, including Monterey, Santa Barbara and Mendocino. Cool conditions in these prime growing spots keep grapes at a perfect balance between vibrant dark fruit character and bright acidity. Notes of vanilla from aging in French and American oak add complexity to the intense black cherry aromas and flavors.
Cabernet Sauvignon: The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has great varietal expression from one of the best vintages in California’s modern history. The blending of Merlot offers the blend some sweet dark fruit and soft tannins while the Petit Verdot adds richness and depth. Look forward to aromas and flavors of black cherry with just a hint of black licorice. The finish will add notes of chocolate, vanilla, and just a touch of toast.
Merlot: The 2013 California Merlot originates from what will be known to be one of California’s finest vintages. The amazing weather allowed the meticulously cropped grapes to hang on the vine to reach full maturity. This helped to create a wine of richness and depth. This is no wimpy Merlot, we make this wine to please even the finickiest of Cab drinkers. Look for aromas and flavors of black cherry, blueberry, and blackberry all tied together with just a kiss of toasty vanilla.
Sauvignon Blanc: This wine is all about the fruit spectrum from citrus flavors through the tropical. Look for notes of tangerine, peach, pear, melon, and pineapple all brought together in a focused manner. This is the perfect wine to enjoy poolside! From poolside aperitifs to your best friend’s wedding, from barbecued oysters on the beach to the BYOB Thai place around the corner, this go-to wine from California’s North Coast rises to every single occasion.
