This Saturday, Vine 2 Wine will be hosting a complimentary wine tasting from 3-6pm that will feature La Forge Estate Merlot 2010 as well as Riff Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio 2010. The merlot features a deep purple color with bright ruby tints, with an intense nose of plum, blackberry, toasted oak and soft spices. On the palate, the wine opens up to reveal flavors of ripe red berries , roasted coffe and spicy notes throughout its long and elegant finish. The pinot grigio features a brilliant straw-yellow color with a green tint. Fruity notes of apples and peach are detected, as well as a forward varietal aroma with mineral notes. There is a quite pronounced, clean, grapey flavor. It is dry, and medium-bodied on the palate with a crisp and well balanced aftertaste and good length.
