WE have a final tasting planned for 2018 and it's a doosie! Plus details below on our gigantic wine tasting with Brewbakers! 
Saturday Dec 22nd's tasting is with Lucinda from Robins Cellars. This tasting includes your chance to pick up a bottle of The Prisoner at 10% off retails! Here's your other wines:  
From the heart of Moscato country. Full southern exposure and gradient of more than 20% are perfect for  the grapes with many long hours of sunshine, without even casting shadows from one row to the next, as is the case in most vineyards. The resulting wine is delightfully fizzy and slightly sweet, an irresistible combination that makes it a universal favorite. You may not drink Moscato, but you can't deny how lovely it is! This is sunshine & honeysuckle & peaches in a bottle. It is $16.59.
Wine Maker Notes: 
The Tahuan Malbec opens to not quite a full purple color. On the nose the wine offers lots of toasty aromas, but then, after only a few minutes, the aromas of fresh and juicy red fruits -such as strawberry and cherry- take center stage. There are also intriguing hints of wild flowers and violets. It is a very well balanced wine in the mouth, delivering sweet, yet firm tannins, and with a soft and pleasant taste where all kinds of fruits freely express themselves. Regularly $20.59, during the tasting only, it's $17.99.
A long time favorite, Oliverhill Red Silk Shiraz is a big, bold red. Robert Parker gives it 90 points and here's what he says: The 2014 Red Silk Shiraz has a deep garnet color and nose of baked blackberries and black plums with mocha, earth and licorice suggestions. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated in the mouth, it delivers a lot of flavor and gorgeously soft tannins, finishing with a lively lift. It's priced at $25.59
I adore Macon-Villages & Albert Bichot is know for affordable Burgundys. This is simply a beautiful chardonnay. It has a lovely nose  with floral notes (acacia and honeysuckle) against a slightly mineral background. The palate is lively, fruity and floral with a refreshing finish.

With a meal, this white Macon-Villages is the perfect match for shellfish, seafood and white meats in cream, or full-flavored cheeses. It is $18.99 a bottle.

What can you say about this wine? says: When Dave Phinney first launched The Prisoner Wine in 2000, the wine became an immediate marketplace star. A massive red wine, with an artsy label, this red wine was the subject of much controversy. Old time, classic wine drinkers eschewed its high alcohol and sweetness—though it was technically a "dry" wine. Younger New World wine drinkers couldn't get enough of it. From my perspective, I placed this wine in the off-dry to medium sweet style, and I consider it to be a dinner wine. The 2017 Prisoner Red delivers quite well. TASTING NOTES: This wine is powerful, mouth filling, and lush. Its aromas and flavors of black, candied fruits and toasty barrels should make it beautiful pairing partner with grilled baby back pork ribs in a sweet-spice hoisin sauce. Come try it for yourself. Try this $62.99 wine and purchase it during the tasting for $56.69 plus tax. Treat yo'self!
You know, I just can't say enough about these ladies. They have been cutting edge entrepreneurs in the area for years. They are world travelers, they put the Sexi in Mexi, they do farm to table like no one else in the area, they make a mean cocktail and they know their Wine! The Willis sisters are Wendy on the left & Chrissy on the right. If you haven't made it to the Sexi Mexi Burrito Bar yet, do yourself a favor and GO! Chrissy does this months Wine Review of the Quara Torrontes: With a splash of acidity and a swirl of fruit finish, the Quara is a great wine for cleaning the palette. It pairs well with Sexi Mexi's Chorizo Fundido or the Classic Cuban and ANY taco special.
