MOOSE CANYON PREMIUM RED WINES – 2018

All Moose Canyon wines are $30/bottle, reduced to $24/bottle for members of American Wine Society, or if a (mixed) case is purchased. All are produced in limited quantities and are sold at the winery, by appointment.  Wines are also available at the Wine Spot.  They set their own prices.

2018 Marathon Blend (50% Cabernet, 30% Malbec, 20% Merlot)
Aromas and flavors of blackberry, ripe plum, mineral, herb, and vanilla.  Smooth tannins, silky finish, and full bodied, this blend evolves as it hangs around your mouth, so you won’t want to rush your tasting.

2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
Always the winemaker’s favorite, full bodied, earthy, the dark fruits and outdoor woodsy aromas have continued to develop as this wine ages in the bottle.  Dark fruits, mineral, and the warmth of baking spices.  Full bodied, velvety finish, enjoy with or without food.

SISTERS RULE WINES

2019 Pinot Gris
This  100% Pinot Gris has intense tropical aromas and flavors including lime, honey, honeysuckle, green apple, kiwi, pear, peach, pineapple, melon and banana cream pie.  The well balanced lingering palate and refreshing acidity make this a great summer wine so take it home and let your imagination run wild.  Available only at the Wine Spot and supplies are low.

2019 Dry Rose
A blend of 36% Merlot, 34% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Franc, 6% Sangiovese, and 4% Grenache, this easy drinking and food-friendly Rose has aromas of fresh strawberries, peaches, and a zest of kiwis.  The palate continues to be generous with bright flavors of watermelon and raspberries.  The wine finishes off with impeccably balanced acidity and a touch (.6%) of residual sugar, exiting the palate with a clean and refreshing finish.  We like this wine with Lumpia, and with pizza or pasta that has white sauce.  $10/bottle at the winery.

2018 Syrah
Dark fruit aromatics of blackberry jam, sweet plums with roasted figs. The palate is round with flavors of bacon fat, smoked meats, and savory exotic spices.  The wine finishes with a silk like texture that lingers on the palate showcasing the complex dark fruit elements.  Swing by Longhorn for a pulled pork sandwich to enjoy with this wine. $12/bottle at the winery.

Case prices:  You can mix and match all wines (both wineries in the same case) to add up to a case (12 bottles) and get the case price, and case prices are extended to any quantities purchased by members of American Wine Society and PSAWBC.
