Beverage of the Week
Troon Vineyard Estate Orange Wine – Kubli Bench Vermentino Applegate Valley 2017
We have a had a few Vermentino wines from Troon but this is their first “orange wine” Vermentino. Orange wines are essentially white wines made like red wines meaning that they fermented with the skins. Typically white wines are made by extracting the juice from the skins and solids.

Tablas Creek Esprit de Tablas Adelaida District 2016
Brilliant, deep ruby color. The aromatics are very intense offering scents of blackberry, cassis, and eucalyptus with supporting notes of black tea, black cherry, and smoked meat. The palate echoes the nose delivering a black fruit-driven core with flavors of black plum, hibiscus flower, and anise. The finish is long and lingering with chewy tannins and sweet mineral accents. Full-bodied and perfectly balanced with a opulent texture. $60 5 Stars/98 points
Troon Vineyard Estate – Kubli Bench Roussanne Applegate Valley 2017

The nose is moderately intense offering scents of persimmon, citrus zest, chamomile tea, and soursop with supporting notes of pear. The palate confirms the nose delivering a citrus-driven core with flavors of dry Sherry, beeswax, and mildly oxidized orchard fruits. The finish is crisp with accents of pear skin. Medium-bodied and nicely balanced with a vibrant texture. $30 3.5 Stars/88 points

Medium-bodied and a bit flabby with a viscous core and subtle citrus acid accents. $15 – 3 Stars
