Aaron:  This had a bright, sharp, floral nose and the flavor isn’t too sweet (I feel this is important to clarify since some might expect it to be sugary).  I really liked the bubbles but the flavor was a little too bitter for me.  Lots of strawberry and tart rhubarb with grapefruit.  88 points.

Teri: A dry and crisp rose with light flavors of cranberry and strawberry. Not much smell to the sparkling wine, just some light strawberry. Refreshing overall. If you enjoy roses you will like this one. 89 points

Apericena Vino Da Tavola Blanco NV

Lot 18 / The Tasting Room, $13


Aaron:  This was a great bottle, especially for the price.  If you want a nice easy going white that is flexible but still enjoyable, go to lot 18 and get this one.  The nose was banana-walnut bread with cantaloupe and sparkling vinegar on the flavor.  There was also white cherries and butter in the background of this full white.  91 points

Teri: I feel the bottle would pair well with fresh salads and creamy chicken. It has a sweet floral nose and smooth easy taste of cantaloupe, bell pepper, citrus and a hint of oak on the finish. Crisp and clean. Nothing stands out which is extraordinary, but it is enjoyable. 87 points 

Anti-Gravity Prosecco 2015

Lot 18 / The Tasting Room, $17

Aaron:  This gets points as a good mixing prosecco but not as a great wine.  I smelled smoked honey and white eucalyptus but the flavor was light without much going on.  There was a little watery green fruit like honeydew but ultimately this was just bland. 88 points for mimosas; 83 for wine.

Teri: Light nose and very mild taste which, if anything, resembles walnuts and some mineral. Extremely dry! Good for mixing but I wouldn’t consider this to drink by itself. 84 points 

7 Fold Vino Da Tavola Bianco

Lot 18 / The Tasting Room, $15


Aaron: Nectarine and apricots flooded the nose while the flavor was mildly tart – though not in a harsh way.  The lingering finish reminded me of purple violets and apple cider vinegar.  This wasn’t anything special but was a nice crisp white for summer.  88 points

Teri: Smooth flavors of stone fruits (apricots and nectarines) with a hint of mineral, close to granite. I enjoyed the smell of apricot on the nose and the smooth finish. Tasty and delicious. 90 points
