What We’ve Been Drinking: February 2016

Another month has come and gone. Even though we got a late start to the month, we still ended up with 11 North Carolina wines! This February marked the first time we participated in Open That Bottle Night! We also had the opportunity to pour three wines for Hanover Park at the Shoppes at Home, Heart and Soul.

We look forward to March and hope it brings with it more NC Wine. Click on the pictures below for more details on our month in wine.

The earthy profile of this wine is well balanced with bright red fruits and a soft tannic finish. #YadkinValley #NCWine #ncwgfeb16

The nose is filled with deeply ripened strawberries with a subtle note of tar in the background. The flavors unfold sip after sip. It starts with a burst of cranberry, then moves into a lightly floral and pepper spice mid-palate. The finish lingers on with soft tannins and a light toasty finale. #YadkinValley #NCWine #ncwgfeb16

Instagram post 17844722767122315 From @shelton_vineyards we have the 2011 Tannat! This bold red wine is a great pairing for the stormy weather we're having today. The nose is full of black plum skins and oaky vanilla. The flavors are big and plentiful starting with black cherries that move into a toasty mid-palate. Vanilla and oak make a return in the finish and fade away with medium tannin finale. #YadkinValley #NCWine #ncwgfeb16
