appreciation in East Tennessee. Today we continue to uphold our tradition of hosting pleasurable
and imaginative wine eventsthroughout the year. Weendeavor to inspire our members to grow
closer to one another through the joy of fine wine and exceptionalcuisine. Special thanks to
Executive Chef, Robert McCulloch, for preparing an inspiring anniversary menu and Stephanie
Carter with Northshore Wine and Spirits for carefully matching the wine selections for this event.

TASTING NOTES

Le Grand Courtage Brut, France Perfect balance of fruit, acidity & sweetness. Lingers nicely
with a bit of Meyer lemon, honeydew & a continuing apple finish. Great length, crisp and refreshing finish. Try it with savory hors d'oeuvres, creamy pastas, spicy dishes, seafood, fruit based desserts or semi-soft cheese.

Font-Mars Pays D’Oc Rosé, Languedoc-Roussillon, France Aroma of a little red and fresh berries, citrus fruits. In the mouth a pure and round final taste. Accompanies your favorite summer dishes in the summer.
To drink within 2 year, to serve between 12° and 14° C.

Ferrari-Carano Fumé‚ Blanc, Sonoma, CA This wine has delicious aromas and flavors of pink grapefruit, lemongrass, lychee, peach, pear, honeydew melon, orange blossom, pineapple, guava and a touch of minerality. Fum‚ Blanc pairs well with simple seafood and poultry dishes, and also holds up nicely with veal and pork.

St Cosme Côte de Rhone, Pay de la Loire, France - Beautiful, garrigue herbs and flowers across fragrant, red berries. The palate has a very deep-set, plush and ripe core of dark-berry flavors, amid glossy, ripe tannins. Great value.

Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles, CA - Deep ruby in color, the Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon expresses intense fragrances of black currants, ripe black cherries and blackberries with subtle notes of violets, mocha and dried spices. It's a big, powerful, modern-styled wine with velvety tannins and heaps of juicy blackberry and cherry fruit, while nuances of cedar, clove and vanilla bean round out the long, smooth finish. It's full bodied, rich and balanced by fresh acidity with a firm, polished tannin structure.
97 Points - Wine Enthusiast.

Barista Pinotage, Paarl, South Africa - A burst of intense, rich coffee and chocolate aromas with nuances of ripe mulberry, plum and Maraschino cherries. The sweet aroma of vanilla follows through on the palate and melds with the soft, luscious tannins. A wine ready to be enjoyed. Drink on its own or with seared duck breast, crispy pork belly or your favorite pizza.
