Two New Wines from the Wagner Family
Bonanza by Chuck Wagner California Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 1
SALE: $20.99 Reg. ($29.99)
Medium ruby-red, this wine opens with scents of currants and dried roses, grape pomace and fresh tilled soil. The nose is nuanced with toasty oak imparting a subtle smoked meat character. Flavors of blueberries and blackberries mix with the warmth of vanilla and toasted bread. Silky tannins and striking smoothness. Mouthwatering, lengthy finish trails off with the taste of unsweetened chocolate and cassis.
Sea Sun by Chuck Wagner California Chardonnay 2016
SALE: $18.99 Reg. ($26.99)
A pale straw color with sunshiny highlights, Sea Sun has a subtle nose, with scents of lightly grilled mango, soft butterscotch, juicy red apple and newly ripened pineapple and apricot. Hints of a springtime meadow, fresh sea air and a trace of smokiness add intriguing layers. Entry on the palate is round and creamy, with flavors of lemon curd and brown spice on the mid-palate. This wine’s fruit flavors, oak and acidity are seamlessly integrated, with no one element standing out. The finish has a grippy, toasty quality, with notes of cinnamon and lemon squares.
