On Sunday, December 23, from 1-4pm, Vine 2 Wine will be hosting a complimentary wine tasting featuring Chateau de la Negly “Le Clape” Coteaux du Languedoc 2011 and Hayfork Petite Sirah 2009. The languedoc has a lemon-gold hue and then a pleasing nose of lemon, butter, hazelnut, and mealy honeycomb. It is gently aromatic, firmly dry, and underpinned by notes of pear, guava, and almond. A certain minerality is revealed on the palate. The petite sirah is inky purple with aromas of wild blueberries and field-warm strawberries. Upon tasting, these fruits are joined by chocolate. Spice and hearty tannins, which leave a mouthwatering and lasting impression on the palate.
