Weekly Wine Tasting for January 14 – Spanish Wines

Free Weekly Saturday Wine (and sometimes spirits) Tastings, Weekly Wine & Spirit Specials
We always love featuring Spanish wines at our FREE weekly tastings! Not only because they’re delicious, but because it usually means we get to spend the afternoon with Mercedes, one of our favorite wine consultants!

Mercedes will be at the shop on Saturday from 3-6 to serve up some of her favorite Spanish wines – and this week, they’re all under $19/bottle!
Keep scrolling to learn more about these beauties, and as always, if you can’t make the tasting in person, you can still snag the deals online!

Altino is a 90-point red: spicy and floral, not too sweet!

Pazo de Monterrey Mencia
First up is a gorgeous 90-point Spanish red on sale for just under $19.  100% Tempranillo, it begins with a highly perfumed nose. It has broad, deep fruit flavors that are balanced nicely by tangy minerality. It has spicy, floral finish. If you’re not a fan of sweet wines but still like a ton of flavor, this one’s for you!
Next is a gorgeous 91-point red, on sale for under $17. It’ll knock your socks off with a fragrant bouquet of cedar, rose petal, and Asian spices. The flavor is velvety and intense: slightly sweet with exquisite balance. You can’t find a better deal for $17. It’s going to become one of your favorites.
We’re so excited to be serving up this one: a 91-point Sauvignon Blanc that’s truly electric. Packed with acidity and citrus flavors, it’s also a little briny – the perfect wine to sip at the beach, or if you’re freezing this winter and wish you were at the beach. It’s delicious as an apertif, too!
Next up is a rich and vibrant 90-point Spanish pink wine for less than $14! It has a bright, sophisticated aroma, then explodes into juicy berry and citrus pith flavors. It rides off into the sunset to a long and spicy finish!
Another great red is an 88-pointer on sale for under $13. It’s definitely more masculine, with woodsy aromas and deep flavor with hints of bitter chocolate. Weighty with nice power, it’s a total steal!
Our final selection for this week is a Spanish sparkling wine for $11.05. It’s got bright, zesty citrus flavors. Tangy and clean, it’s a streamlined, elegant wine that will bring you back to summertime!
We hope to see you Saturday from 3-6 for our free tasting! If you can’t make it, you can always shop our weekly specials online!
