#04 — September, 2020
As the summer is coming to an end, our chosen wines transition us into Fall through fresh, fruit-forward notes, with a touch of earth and oak as we slowly let go of the warmer weather.
For September's collection, we're focusing on wines from Northern California from the coast to the inner valleys. Copain Tous Ensemble and Robert Mondavi are both from a colder climate located along the Northern Coast. Copain Tous Ensemble is a Pinot Noir Rosé from Mendocino County, while Robert Mondavi Fumé is a Sauvignon Blanc/Sémillon blend grown in the iconic Napa Valley.
You can't explore California wines without including a Cabernet Sauvignon. Our third wine, The Lange Twins, comes from the Lodi region located in the Northern part of the Inland Valleys.
This iconic Napa expression is intense with a rich mouthfeel. It features toast, vanilla and roasted fruit tones along with ripe, bright apple, melon, lemon zest and tropical notes. The addition of roughly 15% Semillon adds a gorgeous silkiness to the texture. An intriguing classic, it will have good versatility at the dinner table and will work equally well with turkey dinner or grilled fish.View on LCBO.com
This is a wine that makes no bones about how best to enjoy it - fire up the barbecue. You can expect bold dark fruit with herb, earth and coffee notes, and a backbone of firm, grilled-meat-favouring tannins.View on LCBO.com
Sourced from three prime Mendocino vineyards. You can expect this Pinot Noir rosé to express bright red fruit, with a lifted floral note. Look for a smooth, fresh wine that will serve equally well as a sipper or when paired with summer salads, grilled shrimp, grilled crab legs or chicken kebabs.View on LCBO.com
