DECEMBER MONTHLY WINE PICKS

Cheers! It’s time for our monthly wine picks. Each of our four locations has its very own wine pick(s) of the month. Here are the picks for this month:

Gundlach Bundschu Gewurztraminer 2011
“Fragrant aromas and luscious flavors of clementine, allspice, Asian pear, and passion fruit. The round, plush palate is accentuated with crisp acidity & delicate minerality, leading to a long, vibrant finish.”

Petalos Spanish Red Wine 2010
“This polished red shows density and harmony, delivering complex, well-integrated flavors of mineral, wild berry, fresh herbs, and smoke.  Having plenty of character, this wine received a 93 rating from Wine Spectator.”
750 mL. bottles, $23.99 each

– Peter Glarner, C.S.W. (Webster Groves)

Borsao Garnacha 2011
