a Wine Store on An­other Level

Where Calgary - - SHOPPING -

While its al­most im­pos­si­ble to try ev­ery wine be­fore buy­ing, we’ve done the work ahead of time to make it a lit­tle eas­ier on you. Here are 4 great picks for this sum­mer… RA­DIO COTEAU LAS COLINAS SYRAH 2014 West Sonoma County A can’t miss for dis­cern­ing col­lec­tors, the Ra­dio Coteau wines are in short sup­ply with a cult fol­low­ing. Ex­pres­sions of a cooler cli­mate Syrah with blue­berry, vi­o­lets and graphite aro­mas. Drink or hold. CHATEAU LESSÈGUE 2010 ST. EMILLION FRANCE

A fa­vorite of our ex­ten­sive Bordeaux Se­lec­tion. 2010 was a hot year and winer­ies were dealt a win­ning hand filled with op­por­tu­nity to make a great wine from this vin­tage. The nose is brim­ming with ripe fruit and bal­anced with bak­ing spice. A treat wine from an in­cred­i­ble vin­tage. POPLAR GROVE BLANC DE NOIRS 2016 Okana­gan, BC While it was hard to choose a fa­vorite from Poplar Grove, the Rose, dubbed Blanc de Noir, is a per­fect sum­mer sip­per or pa­tio pounder. Fla­vors and aro­mas of grape fruit and wa­ter­melon over­flow from the glass. SIGNORELLO ES­TATE, HOPES CUVEE CHARDONNAY 2015 Napa Val­ley, Cal­i­for­nia This Chardonnay is named for pro­pri­etor Ray Signorello’s mother Hope. Ray con­tin­ued his fa­ther’s legacy at Signorello Es­tate craft­ing Chardonnay and Caber­net Sau­vi­gnon (Padrone) wor­thy of the most pres­ti­gious com­pany. The 2015 Hopes Cuvee scored 98 points with Robert Parker, it is sup­ple and pre­cise. Some have claimed the best Chardonnay they have ever had!
