What’s on the Wine Bar this week at Wine World on Niagara Falls Blvd. in Amherst, NY?
Smoke Tree Pinot Noir 2016
A cool-climate pinot noir that stays true to the varietal and its Sonoma origins, this red wine from Smoke Tree has delicate aromas, dark fruit flavors and a long, balanced finish.Pair this pinot noir – with its refined fruit flavors and pleasing minerality – with simple, lean grilled meats such as chicken or quail, or try fresh, local seafood, again on the grill.
Columbia Crest H3 Merlot 2015
This medium-bodied Merlot delivers aromas of spice and blackberry with the perfect balance of earth, cocoa and ripe cherry notes on the palate. The complex flavors are followed by a smooth, velvety finish.
Blend: 82% Merlot, 12% Syrah, 4% Malbec, 2% Other Varietals
James Suckling 90 Points Oak plays a reasonable role in adding spicy sweetness to this approachable, plum-fruited merlot. Soft easy tannins
Murrieta’s Well “The Whip” White Blend
The estate-grown Viognier and Muscat Canelli provide beautiful fruit and floral expressions. A rich and full palate provided by our estate Chardonnay and Semillon enhanced by the wonderful natural acidity of our Sauvignon Blanc.
Blend: 30% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon, 30% Chardonnay, 7% Viognier and 3% Muscat Canelli.
Francis Coppola Chardonnay 2015
This delightful wine offers highly fragrant fruit. Light apricot and quince aromas are presented with well-integrated toasted oak nuances. The wine exhibits a silky texture, a full mid palate, and bright purity of flavors, which add to the lasting, complex finish.
