Wine.Woo! wants you to meet Spencer Roloson

A one-day deal from Mac’s Beer and Wine in Midtown, Atlanta

This Blend of Syrah, Carignane & Valdiguie is easily as European as it sounds, but with that core of Napa fruit that makes it wildly enjoyable rather than just “interesting!” Sam Spencer and Wendy Rolosan are dedicated to the grapes of the Rhone Valley and Spain and attempt to create wines that reflect their heritage, not the typical lineup coming out of the Napa Valley, but they demonstrate the breadth and versatility of their vineyard sites. “Palaterra” is modeled on the rich wines of the Southern Rhone, Provence and the Languedoc. All vines are grown in cobbly soils and dry farmed. The vines are micro-yielding which basically means the vineyard will produce fruit that is intensely colorful, creating a dark, fruit forward and inviting glass of wine.

“Aromas of ripe, spice-scented cherry and raspberry tart. Lush, spicy mint on the mouth with intensely smooth tannins.” 91PTS – VINFOLIO

Farmer Fizz

What’s New in Bubbles at Mac’s!
Farmer’s Fizz & a few New Bubbles for the Holidays…

Champagne bubbles

What is Farmer’s Fizz?
In the Champagne region of France most labels are made by negociants who purchase fruit from all over the region to make their blended vintage cuvee’s, thus giving a consistent style and quality from year to year. While this is loved and appreciated, Grower Champagne, affectionately termed “Farmer’s Fizz” by those of us who love it, is Champagne made by the Grower from his/her own vineyards’ fruit. Much like a Single-vineyard or more specific regional designation, Grower Champagne expresses the specific qualities of a place and winemaker. Why buy Grower Champagnes? Because the flavors vary from year to year and from vineyard to vineyard, so these bottles are a different experience every time you open them and surprisingly they offer a Value that you won’t find from the big Champagne houses (Grand Crus for the price of regular cuvee,etc). So pick up a bottle or two this holiday season and toast with those you love!
